Another one bites the dust! This time it is the PGA(Where’s the Money)TOUR ending its relationship with the WGC Bridgestone Invitational at historic Firestone Country Club in Akron, but not before Justin Thomas wins his ninth event with his grandparents walking along with him. His grandfather, Paul Thomas, played in the 1960 PGA Championship at Firestone. All is not lost. Bridgestone will be the title sponsor for the Senior Players Championship to be contested at Firestone CC South Course in 2019.
Did someone say Barracuda? Andrew Putnam did. The 29-year old Putnam won the modified stableford scoring formatted Barracuda Championship at Montreaux Country Club in Reno, Nevada for a two-year exemption on the PGA TOUR and an invitation to the 100th PGA Championship in St Louis.
Jarrod Lyle, an Australian professional golfer, lost his battle to cancer the night before the beginning of the 100th PGA Championship. Jarrod had been battling cancer for some 20 years, and finally succumbed to its ravages at home at the age of 36. Our condolences to the Lyle family. The yellow ribbons the professionals were wearing at Firestone & Bellerive, including Rickie Fowler’s yellow outfit for the first round, were in Jarrod’s honor.
Brooks Koepka at age 28 did it again at the 100th PGA Championship played at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis to win his 2nd major of 2018. The Florida native has three major wins out of a total of four on Tour.
That makes it all four majors won by a Titlist Pro V1 or Pro V1X ball.
Brandt Snedeker, who captured his first PGA title in Greensboro in 2007, went wire to wire to win the Wyndham Championship again with an opening 59. Brandt played his Bridgestone clubs and the Tour B X ball to claim his ninth PGA win and play his best in 2018.

A Canadian wins in Canada-what a novelty. It has been 45 years since a home-girl has won the CP Women’s Open, but 20-year old Brooks Henderson did it on the Wascana Country Club in chilly Saskatchewan, also by four strokes with a full bag of PING clubs and a Titlist Pro V1X ball. Kudos to Brook.
Scott Parel won the Boeing Classic in Snoqualmie, Washington by 3 strokes on the PGA Champions.
