JULY 29, 2019

Welcome to eSouthernGOLF, an internet magazine featuring articles and stories from all facets of the wonderful world of golf. Our writers and contributing media provide you, our readers, with interesting and timely posts. Please enjoy this month’s Editor letter.

First things first. Congratulations to the United States Womens’ Soccer Team for defending their title and winning the 2019 World Cup!

In just his third professional start Team TaylorMade’s 20 year-old Matthew Wolfe won the inaugural 3M Open at TPC Twin Cities in Minnesota armed with his new M5 Driver & Fairway wood. The Wolfeman eagled the 72nd hole from the fringe to better Bryson by 1 stroke with a full bag of TaylorMade clubs and TP5x ball.

ShanShan Feng from China won the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic played at Oneida, Wisconsin, just west of Green Bay for her 10th LPGA victory, finishing with a birdie to win by one and total 29 under par.

Spaniard Jon Rahm, another Team TaylorMade member, won the Dubai Duty-Free Irish Open by three strokes with a full bag of TaylorMade clubs, Spider putter and TP5 ball for his 2nd Irish Open win.

Twenty-one year old Canadian Brooke Henderson was named ‘best female golfer” at the Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Awards (ESPY) July 10th. Congrats Brooke.

Dylan Fritelli, a 29 year-old South African who played on the National Championship University of Texas team, has won the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run. Fabulous Fritelli played a full bag of Callaway clubs and Chrome Soft X Triple Track ball to secure his win.

World Golf Hall of Fame 2019 inductee and another South African, Retief Goosen, won the Bridgestone Senior Players Championship at Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio for his first win on the PGA Tour Champions.

Austrian Bernd Weisberger walked away with his second European Tour victory at the Scottish Open after defeating Benjamin Herbert in a playoff at the Renaissance Club in North Berwick. ‘Beef is Back!’ After a Sunday 62, Andrew Johnston punched his ticket to the Open.

Tony Romo, former Dallas Cowboys quarterback, ran away with the American Century Championship at Edgewood Tahoe Golf course for back to back wins.

Sei Young Kim won the LPGA Marathon Classic at Highland Meadows Golf Club in Sylvania, Ohio for her ninth victory, outlasting Lexi Thompson.

When Irish are Smiling, all the world seems bright and gay. Thirty-two year old Irishman Shane Lowry is the new Champion Gollfer, winning his first major at Royal Portrush in Northern Ireland. Shane used a full bag of Srixon clubs, Cleveland wedges and the Srixon Z-STAR XV ball to outlast the field with six shot victory. Those Srixon clubs were wrapped in Golf Pride grips as was 81% of the field. “Erin go Bragh!”

Jim Herman won the Barbasol Championship at Keene Trace Golf Club’s Championship Trace course in Kentucky for his second win on the PGA TOUR.

Cydney Clanton and Jasmine Suwannapura ran away with the DOW Great Lakes Bay Invitational at Midland Country Club in Michigan, the LPGA’s first team event. In France, 24-year-old South Korean Jin Young Ko won the Evian Championship.

At Royal Lytham St. Annes in Lancashire, England, Bernhard Langer won the Senior British Open by two strokes at age 61.

Brooks Koepka won the WGC Fedex St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. Well done Bro!

It might be a little warm but the price is right for golf. Spend a little to play a lot. Go Play!
