1. Nelly No. Nelly No.

Keely Levins, Golf Digest Korda won her eighth LPGA title. She is expected to regain her No. She’s projected to regain her No. 1 spot in the world rankings.”

  • Korda stated, “There have been more ups than downs this year I believe, and that’s why I find this so sweeter.”
  • “The win was a boost of confidence for Korda, as she heads into the last event of the season: The CME Group Tour Championship. The 60-player field will be competing for the largest purse of the season in Naples (Fla).
  • “Playing well at the season-ending championship was definitely a goal of mine. It’s almost like a home match. Korda stated that she would be accompanied by her parents, which will be very nice. “But for now, I’m going to just enjoy this win and when I wake up tomorrow morning, I’ll head down to Naples to get ready, get body and mind ready to prepare for the new week.”

2. Cam Smith: Majors must “stand above all politics”

Evin Priest, Golf Digest In an interview with The Sydney Morning Herald in Australia Smith called on LIV golfers in order to be able tee off in the majors in 2023.

  • Smith stated that Smith believes the majors must be above politics. They must allow us to play if they want the best product, and the best players competing against each other around the world. We shouldn’t be playing if we are allowed to play on another tour. We are certainly good enough players. We should be able to claim those spots.”
  • Smith is fortunate to be exempt from the majors for five years because he won the 150th Open at St. Andrews. It is not surprising that Smith, a LIV player feels his peers should be able to play.

Adam Woodard, Golfweek …” The field for the 2022 PNC Championship is getting stronger and more competitive.”

  • “Nelly Korda won the Pelican LPGA Champion and regained No. The second wave of commitments to the family-friendly event at Ritz Carlton Golf Club Orlando on December 17-18, see Justin Thomas, 2022 PGA Championship winner, and No. 1 ranking on Sunday.

4. Tadd Fujikawa: Sea Island pickleball pro

Cameron Morfit, Tadd Fujikawa won’t sweat making it at The RSM Classic on Sea Island. While others worry about staying in the fairway at the last official PGA TOUR Event of 2022, Fujikawa will be preaching staying out the kitchen.

  • Fujikawa, the head pickleball pro on Sea Island is no longer a golfer. At least not for now.
  • Fujikawa, 31, stated that he taught a bit of golf so the teaching part was transferred. He hosted the PGA TOUR at Sea Island’s bustling pickleball facility on a sunny fall day.
  • Fujikawa is a man who plays many roles in his own time, as the Bard said. As he won the 18th hole, you may remember his smile and his uppercut. This was his hometown tournament at the Sony Open in Hawaii (T20). He was just 16 years old and barely 5′ tall. This made him the youngest PGA TOUR player in half a century.

5. Davis Thompson’s transformation of the left-hand low putting by Davis Thompson

Sean Martin …”’s Thompson was disappointed to miss the cut at the Korn Ferry Tour Nashville stop last year. This is his fourth missed cut in five attempts. Thompson then went to a local par-3 course with a buddy and began playing with his putting grip. The Korn Ferry Tour rookie, admittedly a creature of habit and reluctant to change from his traditional grip, was not hesitant to try something new. However, they say that desperate times call for desperate measures. Thompson tried the left-hand-low style of putting, which is cross-handed.

  • “I was mentally in a bad spot with my putting. “…I needed to make changes,” he stated recently at Sea Island Golf Club. This week’s RSM Classic will be held at Sea Island Golf Club. Thompson is familiar with the course. His father Todd is the RSM’s tournament Director and Davis Thompson calls St. Simons Island home.
  • He has played the RSM three times before, but this will be his first PGA TOUR appearance. He is 54th in FedExCup, thanks to two top-15 finishes. His mid-season switching to the putting switch helped him become a TOUR member at only 23 years of age.
  • He used two drills to become familiar with the new grip. They were almost immediately successful. He placed fifth in the second event using the new grip. Before the final round, he viewed Jordan Spieth’s highlights and won his next start. He had earned enough points to clinch his first TOUR card a month later.

6. LIV’s Australia announcement sparks controversy

James Corrigan, Telegraph Greg Norman made the announcement at Adelaide Oval that the Grange course would host the first LIV event in the country. While the CEO of the league stated that he believes that Tiger Woods and Rory McIlroy should be grateful that the start-up Tour forced the PGA Tour increase its incentives for big-name players, the background was a row in the corridors.

  • “If any doubts remained about LIV’s propensity for division, then the large differences of opinion between the incumbent South Australian premier (and his predecessor) has made this point irrefutable.”
  • “Peter Malinauskas stated that this is an “unparalleled chance for the state”, while Rex Patrick insists that taxpayers shouldn’t be used to “assist foreign officials in washing away unconscionable actions such as the murder of a journalist doing his job”.

7. Finau finally fulfilling potential

Sean Martin …”’s Sean Martin We are quick to attribute a player’s Sunday struggles to a deficit mental game, an inability or inability to deal with the pressure of a tournament’s final holes. Finau is blessed with preternatural physical abilities, which makes it easy to attribute his five-year drought without a win to an intangible trait.

  • “The simple answer may not always be the right one. We can now stop the inquiry.”
  • “The narrative is not, “Can Tony Finau close?” It is now, “Can he stop?” Sunday’s four-shot victory at the Cadence Bank Houston Open was Finau’s third win in seven TOUR starts. Finau acknowledges that winning breeds confidence. That momentum keeps him moving in the right direction. But listening to Finau speak Sunday makes one wonder if we have it backwards. Finau was able to realize his full potential because of the continual development of his physical gifts.
  • Finau, the son of a Delta baggage manager, got his start in the game with a 6-iron he bought for 75 cents. He pounded his garage floor until his hands were blemished. He slept in his car many times at junior tournaments. The scars on his forearms from fire-knife dancing that he performed to raise funds for his junior tournaments are still visible. At 17 he became a professional and spent years on mini-tours, before finally reaching the Korn Ferry Tour.

8. Rory insists Norman must go

Rory McIlroy says that Iain Carter, BBC Greg Norman’s commissioner for the LIV Tour must resign to end the “stalemate” in golf’s bitter civil war.

  • “The season-ending DP World Tour Championship is Dubai, where the world number one is in pole position for the European tour’s Order of Merit title.”
  • McIlroy is still focused on the men’s game’s future.
  • “Greg must go. “He needs to leave stage left,” stated the 33-year old.
  • “He’s made his mark, but I believe now is the time to say that you’ve got it off the ground. But no one will talk to anyone unless there is an adult present who can actually attempt to mend fences.”
