It was a pretty big weekend for golf in general.
- AK (Anthony Kim) had high hopes in Canada coming off of a great Open finish, but followed up his 69 with an 81. AK was also DQ’d for signing an incorrect scorecard. Try googling “Anthony Kim DQ Canadian Open” – hopefully it gets you here. That’s my joke for the day.
- Charl Schwartzel is on a tear. He picked up his 9th Top 10 of the year. He’s played 18 events and has 2 finishes outside of the Top 30.
- Suzann Pettersen had an emotional weekend after the attacks in Norway. However, she still dominated with a 69-68 on the weekend for a great Top 10 at the “soon to be” 5th LPGA Major (Evian Masters).
- Scott Jamieson bounced back from his Open Championship missed cut, with a T13. That’s 3 Top 25s and 2 Top 10s in his last 5 starts.
- Pablo Martin and Richard Finch picked up Top 10s at the same event, Nordea Masters.
- John Cook and Bob Tway picked up some decent finishes at the Senior Open Championship. They finished 11th and T12.
- Tommy Fleetwood also picked up a Top 10 on the European Challenge Tour. He’s sitting at 29th on the Challenge Tour Rankings…just outside the Top 25 to advance to the European Tour.
