Golf: What’s On This Week

350

 

Includes Leaderboards and TV Times

LOTS of “Opens” on this week with the over 50’s having a Major go at the British Senior Open in Wales, the US PGA Tour playing the Canadian Open, the European Open on in Germany and the ladies competing for the Scottish Open.

As we noted elsewhere Peter Lonard makes his senior debut at Royal Porthcawl in Wales, where Bernhard Langer (who ominously won here by 13 strokes in 2014) and Fred Couples are among the favourites.

Other Aussies include Peter Fowler, Peter O’Malley (pictured above), Mike Harwood, Terry Price and David McKenzie.

Aussies have won the Canadian Open eight times, and although the most recent winner (2015) Jason Day won’t be around, there is still a healthy Aussie contingent which includes Cameron Smith, Geoff Ogilvy, Matt Jones Cameron Percy, Curtis Luck, Greg Chalmers, Brett Drewitt and Ryan Ruffels.

There are just two full field events remaining on the US PGA TOUR before the FedEx playoff series and the task for a number of those Aussies is to be inside the top 125 in the rankings when the cut-off is made.

Ogilvy is currently just inside the 125 but some others like Jones and Percy need some good performances to ensure their continued place on the tour.

With many of the world’s best resting after all the excitement of the 146th British Open on the weekend, Patrick Reed is the highest ranked player at the European Open at the Green Eagle Golf Course in Hamburg in Germany.

Aussie starters include Nathan Holman, Ashley Hall, Dimi Papadatos, Ryan McCarthy, Daniel Fox, Terry Pilkadaris and veteran Richard Green, who lost his European Tour card last year and is hoping to play his way back onto the circuit.

A week out from the Ricoh Women’s British Open the LPGA has co-sanctioned the Ladies Scottish Open this week at Dundonald Links in Ayrshire.

World number one and two So Yeon Ryu and Ariya Jutanugarn headline an event that includes some strong Aussie challengers in Minjee Lee, Su Oh, Katherine Kirk, Sarah Jane Smith, Sarah Kemp, Karrie Webb, Stacey Peters and Whitney Hillier.
