Sung Hyun Park won the rain shortened Volunteers of America LPGA Texas Classic at the Colony in Texas. I question why the Tournament officials and LPGA did not extend it to a 54 hole Monday finish, since there is no event this coming week.
Webb Simpson handled TPC Sawgrass better that the rest and won THE PLAYERS for the first time, after struggling for a few years adjusting from the anchored putter ruling. Way to go Webb! Simpson won with a full bag of Titlist clubs and ProV-1 ball and an Odyssey putter.
Justin Thomas is the new Official #1, having placed enough spots higher than DJ at the Players.
Wise beyond his years, 21 year-old Aaron Wise earned his first PGA TOUR win at the AT&T Byron Nelson played on the Coore/Crenshaw designed Trinity Forest links style track in Dallas. Aaron hit a 402 yard drive with his Callaway Rogue Driver
MIguel Angel Jimenez, the most interesting man in golf, won his first PGA Champions Tour major at the Regions Tradition contested on the Greystone Golf & Country Club in Birmingham, Alabama. The 54 year-old Spaniard has won 21 times on the European Tour and 5 on the Champions playing his PING clubs and Srixon ball. His preparation on Saturday night was “a margarita as an apertif, a nice bottle of rioja(wine) and smoke a big fat cigar”.
Ariya Jutanugarn won the LPGA Tour’s Kingsmill Championship in a two hole playoff on the River Course at the Escalante Golf managed Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia.
Justin Rose played his full bag of Taylor Made clubs and TP5x ball to win the Fort Worth Invitational at the Colonial Country Club by 3 strokes. The 38 year-old Gold Medalist beat out Brooks Koepka for the second time this season to garner his 9th PGA TOUR victory.
Australian Minjee Lee won the Volvik Championship at Travis Pointe CC in Ann Arbor, Michigan by one stroke to celebrate her 22nd birthday. The LPGA has had 13 different winners so far this year. Just an hour or so east on I-94, Englishman Paul Broadhurst went on a birdie-feast at Harbor Shores Resort in Benton Harbor to win the Kitchen-Aid

The world of golf lost a true pioneer this week when LPGA & World Golf Hall of Fame member Carol Mann passed away at her home in the Woodlands in Houston at the age of 77. A PGA & LPGA member, Carol was a giant in the game of golf at 6′ 3″, or as she liked to say 5′ 15″. She won 38 times and 2 majors in her career, which included a three year stint as President of the LPGA. I first met Carol at the 2008 PGA Show when she was awarded “The First Lady of Golf” by the PGA of America, and while she could be harsh or opinionated, she had a kind heart and helped anyone anytime. We became friends and had breakfast every year since during the show. Writer Ron Sirak said of her, “If Julia Child had played golf, she would have been Carol Mann.” Goodbye Carol! I’ll miss you.
