We lost Alice Dye, the first lady of golf architecture, recently. Besides being the wife of Pete Dye and an accomplished amateur player, Alice often suggested and sometimes demanded changes to Pete’s designs. They were a life long partnership of two strong willed and talented golf lovers, having spent their college years at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. I met Alice for the first time in 2008 when I was invited to a party at Dye Preserve in Jupiter the night before Pete’s induction into the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine. I figured all the golf writers would be clamoring to interview Pete, so I chose to interview Alice. I spent an hour with Pete by her side in the Dye Library in the Preserve Clubhouse. Alice reminisced about their courtship and their early struggling years and her influence on him, especially the suggestion on #17 at TPC Sawgrass, the home of the Players Championship, after they had played the island hole at Ponte Vedra Club. She was instrumental in getting architects to consider the women’s game and establishing forward tees. Happy Fairways Alice!
The third time is the charm. After giving up the lead the past two years Rickie Fowler closed it out and won the Waste Management Phoenix Open playing his Cobra 9 clubs and a new TaylorMade TP5x ball. Finally Fowler! Congrats Rickie.
NellyKorda from Bradenton, Florida won the Handa ISPS Women’s Australian Open, matching her sister Jessica’s win in 2012 and securing her 2nd on the LPGA Tour. Nice job Nelly!
Lefty is back. Phil Mickelson captured the Pebble Beach Pro-Am at the age of 48 for his 44th win on the PGA TOUR, playing with a full bag of Callaway Woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and Chrome Soft X ball.
Bernhard Langer, Boca Raton’s favorite son, took home the trophy at the Oasis Championship at the Old Course at Broken Sound Country Club. Bernhard, who also was awarded the ‘Payne Stewart Award’ in 2018, lives just 15 minutes from the course and has risen to the highest money winner on the PGA Champions.
JB Holmes captured the Genesis Open at famed Riviera Golf & Country Club in Los Angeles with his Srixon irons and Srixon ZStar XV ball for his fifth win on TOUR.

After Hurricane Maria ripped through Puerto Rico devastating much of the island and laying waste many of the golf courses, the PGA TOUR in 2019 once again played its Puerto Rico Open at the beautiful oceanfront Tom Kite designed Coco Beach Golf & Country Club’s golf course in Rio Grande, pumping needed revenue back into the island. 27-year-old Martin Trainer won his 1st PGA title playing TaylorMade clubs.
And in Mexico, DJ put on a clinic on how to win on the PGA TOUR again to capture his 20th at WGC-Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepac, outside Mexico City. Well done Dustin!
