Who is Max Homa? Well, if you didn’t know him, now you do after his journeyman win at the Wells Fargo Championship at the Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. Max used a full bag of Titlist clubs and Pro V1 ball. Happy Cinco de Mayo Max!

Scott McCarron, a Tour Edge Exotics Staffer, won the Insperity Invitational at the Woodlands, Texas to keep his #1 status on the PGA Tour Champions Charles Schwab Cup standings.

At Lake Merced in California, Sei Young Kim won in a three way playoff at the LPGA MEDIHEAL Championship to earn her eighth win.

Watchout PGA, the Koreans are coming. Thirty one year old Sung Kang secured his first PGA TOUR win at the ATT Byron Nelson Championship played at the Coore & Crenshaw designed Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas.

Steve Stricker won his first major and his second win on the PGA Champions, The Regions Tradition at Greystone Country Club in Hoover, Alabama. The 2020 Ryder Cup Captain braved the nasty weather to win using all Titlist clubs and the ProV1 ball.

Brooks Koepka is King of Bethpage, going wire to wire at the 101st PGA Championship to capture back to back PGA wins. A big shout out to DJ for his great Sunday charge and keeping the viewing public from falling asleep with the poor coverage and large lead Brooks had. Brooks used Taylor Made woods, Mizuno irons, Vokey wedges, a Scotty Cameron putter and Titlist Pro V1X ball and a lot of shear power to control his destiny and to jump to #1 in the official World Golf Rankings. Way to go BK!

Kevin Na showed his prowess getting around a tight Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas to win the Charles Schwab Challenge by 4 strokes for his 3rd win on the PGA TOUR. Besides the huge trophy and the plaid jacket given to the winner, Kevin also won a fully restored 1973 Dodge Challenger which he gave to his caddie, Kenny Harms.  Just goes to show the PGA TOUR still has golfers and not just bombers.

Englishwoman, 24-year-old Bronte Law captured her maiden win at the Pure Silk Championship at Kingsmill Golf Resort presented by Visit Williamsburg in Virginia.

For a guy who gave up playing professional golf in 2003, 51-year-old Ken Tanigawa did alright for himself on Memorial Day Sunday to win the Kitchen Aid 80th Senior PGA Championship at historic Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, New York.

I recently played some of the Georgia State Park golf courses, part of the Georgia Golf Trail, a collection of 27 resorts and courses throughout the Peach State. What a pleasure to be out in all natural settings playing such a diversity of layouts throughout the state. If you haven’t played them, you really need to check out my article on these amazing layouts.
