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.

Bernhard Langer won the Senior Open at the Wales Royal Porthcawl Golf Club that overlooks the British Channel by three strokes over Corey Pavin. Jhonatten Vegas, the first Venezuelan to make it on the PGA Tour, has won the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey Golf Course, Jack Nicklaus’ first solo design, for the second time defeating Charlie Hoffman in a playoff. His repeat performance near Toronto is avry special since he was struggling most of the year with his game.

With two beautiful days, then one rainy blustery day, and then just cold, the Ladies Scottish Open concluded with South Korean Mi Hyong Lee playing 6 under on the final day to beat Australian Karrie Webb who struggled on the last few holes. The Ladies played on the same course the men play, DunDonald LInks near the Firth of Clyde in Ayrshire.
