Jordan Spieth became the 2017 Champion Golfer at the 146th Open played at Royal Birkdale, tying Jack Nicklaus as the youngest, before the age of 24, to win three of the four majors. And the PGA Championship is next month at Quail Hollow Country Club in Charlotte, N.C. A big eSouthernGOLF shout out to Matt Kuchar, a Florida native, for giving Jordan a run for it, coming in second. Matt played with a hodge podge of golf clubs like Brooks Koepka at the US Open and the infamous Duffer. The crowds surpassed the previous record of 230,000 to view the Open live and in person.
Meanwhile, back here in Alabama, Grayson Murray, a Wake Forest alum, won his first PGA event at the Barbasol Championship on the Robert Trent Jones Trail’s Grand National Lake course in Opelika, which gets him in the PGA Championship. In Kyung Kim rallied to win the LPGA Marathon Classic at the Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio for her second win this year.
