The University of Oklahoma won the NCAA Men’s Division I Golf Finals beating Oregon 3-1 in match play at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Illinois. Ole Miss’ Braden Thornberry won the Men’s NCAA Individual Golf Championship for 2017, the first ever team or individual championship for the Rebels golf program.
Auburn alumnus and Ohio native, Jason Dufner, won the rain delayed Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Ohio hosted by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus. Jason used his Titlist clubs, Pro- V1 ball to snag the win. South Korea’s In Kyung Kim won the Shoprite LPGA Classic on the Bay Course at the Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club near Atlantic City, New Jersey.
Steve Stricker, a Wisconsin native, had to qualify for the U.S. Open being played at Erin Hills Wisconsin, but did it handily going 10 under in a Qualifier Monday 6/5.
Florida State University Alumnus Daniel Berger repeated his winning ways at the Fed Ex St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind with a one stroke victory, playing his new Callaway Epic woods, Chrome Soft ball and irons.
Amateur and hometown boy, Ole Miss Sophomore Braden Thornberry, scored a 65 on Sunday to finish at 8 under and tied for fourth. Ariya Jatanugarn won the Manulife LPGA Classic 2017 in a 1 hole playoff, while Lexi Thompson gave up the lead coming home to tie for 1st at the Whistle Bear Golf Club in Canada. Fifty one year old Brandt Jobe won the PGA TOUR Champions 2017 Principal Charity Classic at the Wakonda Club in Iowa after 19 years on numerous tours without a win.
I want to applaud Phil Mickelson for attending his daughter’s high school graduation foregoing a trip to Erin Hills to play the Open. Although golf is his occupation, sharing one of a kind memories as a family should take precedence particularly Father’s Day weekend. Well done Lefty! After 25 years of success, Jim “Bones” Mackay and Phil have parted ways. The legendary twosome have amassed 42 wins and 5 majors.
Brooks Koepka won the U.S. Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin with a hodgepodge of clubs and without signing with a manufacturer. He had Taylor Made woods, Nike driving iron, Mizuno irons, Vokey wedge, Scotty Cameron putter and Titlist Pro V1X ball: He has a mixed bag like The Duffer. Congratulations to the 27 year old who played his collegiate golf at Florida State University, his second win in the USA. That is seven majors in a row won by a first timer. Let’s see what happens at the OPEN and PGA? Nineteen year old Canadian Brooke Henderson won the LPGA Meijer Classic in Grand Rapids, Michigan playing her Ping woods, irons and putter for her fourth LPGA win.
Jordan Spieth, playing his Titlist clubs and ball, won the Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut with a hole out from the bunker on the first playoff hole to beat Daniel Berger, Fred Couples won the American Family Insurance Championship at University Ridge Golf Club in Madison, Wisconsin hosted by Steve Stricker, Captain of the USA President’s Cup. So Yeon Ryu became the first two time winner on the LPGA Tour this year with an easy win at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship on Pinnacle Country Club.
