LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

It’s been a long time coming, but how sweet it is. The 2011 Open Champion at Royal St. George’s, Darren Clarke from Northern Ireland, secured his first win on the PGA Tour Champions at the Timber Tech Championship contested in Boca Raton at the Old Course of Broken Sound Club and his 1st since that summer day in England.

November 1, the nine-time Major winner Gary Player turned 85. Happy birthday Black Knight.

At the Bermuda Championship on the beautiful Port Royal Golf Club, University of Florida alum Brian Gay bested Wyndham Clark with a birdie on the first playoff hole to capture his 5th PGA TOUR win, playing the new Titlist PRO V1 ball and his faithful Srixon Z745 irons.

Viva Ortiz! 29-year-old Mexican golfer Carlos Ortiz won the Vivant Houston Open at the city’s historical Memorial Park Golf Course, just renovated by ASGCA Tom Doak with input from Brooks Koepke and funded by a foundation headed by Houston Astros owner, Jim Crane.

After 9 playoff holes at Phoenix Country Club, Kevin Sutherland defeated Paul Broadhurst to win the Charles Schwab Championship. Scotsman Robert MacIntyre used a full bag of Taylor Made clubs and ball to win the Cypress Showdown in Europe.

A special eSouthernGOLF shoutout to 65-year-old Tim Rosaforte, who resides in Jupiter, Fl. for being the first journalist elected to the Honorary PGA of America Membership. Tim has been covering golf for over 40 years and is a well-respected member of our Golf Writers Association of America.

It was a ‘November to Remember’ at Augusta National as Dustin Johnson claimed his first green jacket breaking the scoring record held by Tiger and Jordan Spieth with a 20 under final playing a full bag of TaylorMade clubs and ball. Well deserved DJ!

Robert Streb did it again, only six years apart from his first victory at the RSM Classic in beautiful Sea Island, Georgia. It took 2 playoff holes versus Kevin Kisner, but he did it securing the title for 2020 with his Titlist clubs and Pro V1 ball. Well done Robert.

The inaugural LPGA Pelican Women’s Championship held in Belleair, Florida was won by South Korean Sei Young Kim for her second straight victory in the states.

Happy Thanksgiving to all our readers and golfers. Please be safe.
