They don’t call me The Traveling Golfer for nothing! Last week I traveled to Grey Silo in Waterloo to watch the women battle it out to be this year’s Manulife Financial LPGA Classic Champion. It was great to see a great contingent of players including Canadians Lorie Kane, Alena Sharp, and up and coming Brooke Henderson. Henderson is a 15-year old out of Smith Falls, Ontario with a lot of promise in her future! Congrats to Hee Young Park for edging out Angela Stanford on the first playoff hole.
Speaking of playoff holes…what a finish at the John Deere Classic! Too bad David Hearn couldn’t win, but Jordan Spieth was clutch in the end. Congrats to him on making it to Muirfield. More on the Open tomorrow!
The Sanderson Farms Championship in Mississippi will kick off tomorrow, but today, myself, Rick Drennan, Peter Mumford and Jean St. Onge will tee it up with 08′ Masters champ Trevor Immelman in the Pro Am at the Annandale Golf Club. Pics to follow. Should be a great day! We’ve got Canuck and 03′ Masters champ Mike Weir in the group behind us and 9-time PGA Tour winner Stuart Appleby in the group ahead!
Stay tuned for more of my time in Mississippi…The golf is just getting started!
