3. Lydia Ko wins in South Korea

Keely Levins Golf Digest’s Lydia Ko always makes it special to go back to South Korea to compete.

Ko is passionate about South Korea and the fans love her even more. The 25-year old had not won an LPGA or Korean LPGA event in South Korea after nine years of professional golf. Sunday’s BMW Ladies Championship was made even more special by this fact. Ko won her 18th LPGA Tour victory with a 65 in the final round at Oak Valley Country Club, Wonju. Andrea Lee was only four shots behind Ko, and finished solo second.

6. Lynch: Future fall seasons will be worth it on the PGA Tour

Eamon Lynch for Golfweek…”Beginning this season, just 70 players will qualify for the FedEx Cup playoffs and secure cards for the new calendar-year season of 2024, down from 125. Rest will participate in a shootout to earn ’24 status for the fall events. This is a Hunger Games-style contest with up-and-coming talent as well as famous names looking for redemption. The old dead zone that ran from East Lake to New Years now has life and something important at stake: future employment. This was possible through tournaments and the revived Q-School. It is now possible to embrace the fall for what it has, rather than dismiss it for what it lacks.

  • However, this does not mean that the best players in the game will be unable to compete for relevance for four months. The DP World Tour expects more stars to race to the year-end bonus pool party at Dubai because the PGA Tour has abandoned plans to host a fourth quarter series of lucrative events abroad. Jon Rahm has stated his support for fall events in Spain. It has been reported that McIlroy, Shane Lowry and the Irish Open will be moving to dates after the FedEx Cup playoffs. Golf fans will likely see more elite players in autumn, even though they may be in different time zones.

8. Lowry explains how to break the putter

Our Jason Daniels During round one of the CJ Cup 2019, the 2019 Open champion had just completed his approach to approximately 50 feet when he pulled the putter out of his bag too quickly. This caused a split between graphite, steel, and the putter.

  • Lowry had quickly pulled the club from his grasp and it was headed to the floor. However, “as the shaft was like that, I tried to flick it up using my foot. I caught it right where the graphite meets steel on the shafts, and it just snapped into half.”
