Very pleased to see Charley Hull win her first LPGA title at the weekend in Florida. Great finish to the tournament, especially after the World No1 Lydia Ko shot a course record in the first or second round. Lets hope she progresses in the Ladies’ Majors in 2017.
Video summary of her final round on the Sky Sports webpage. See her halfswing shot into inches on the 10th!
Rory seems up for more majors next year after some solid golf this year, but it was Henrik Stenson that won the Race to Dubai at the weekend. I think his final round at the Open alongside Phil Mickelson was the highlight of golf on tv for me this year. Rory at the Ryder Cup was excellent and yes even Patrick Reid’s performance at Hazeltine was amazing to watch, but the US crowds and the overall result certainly put a dampener on that for it. “Cheeseburger”, pffft you idiots. Yep, Phil and Henrik at the Open was the clear winner for me.
Finally young Matthew Fitzpatrick took another step up winning in Dubai – a cracking result. BBC website has a good article on Fitzpatrick and also Tyrell Hatton, who could both well feature in the next generation of home grown major winners for the future.
