Here’s what’s happening this week in the world of golf.
Stenson Finishes Season with a Bang
Earlier this week, Henrik Stenson finished the 2013 season off on a positive note, by winning both the Tour Championship and the FedEx Cup, being the first European to do so. This was truly an amazing climb to the top for Stenson, after being ranked over 200 just 2 years ago.
Will Stenson’s comeback tour last into next season?
Ryder Cup Gets Hyped
With the Ryder Cup just a year away now, there was a huge push this week to showcase the 2014 Cup, to be defended in Scotland. And, Tom Watson managed to make some waves by musing that he wished the teams were picked solely by accomplishments not with some Captains picks.
Charley Hull Skips Q-School
On the ladies side of the game this week, Solheim Cup darling and British teen phenom Charley Hull announced that she would be skipping Q-School. The 17 year old now plans to qualify for LPGA and LET events via sponsors until she starts getting in the money.
We’re excited to see Hull take the stage on the LPGA, are you?
Links Magazine New Top 25 List
To coincide with their 25 anniversary, Links Magazine has dropped their own list of the 25 best golf resorts in the world. Most of the list is not surprising as it features Pebble Beach, Brandon Dunes, and The American Club, among others.
Which of these are your dream courses to play, we’ll cover a few in the Road Trip next week!
