Golf: What’s On This Week

171

 

Includes Leaderboards and TV Times

TWO majors this week with the US Senior Open and Women’s PGA Championship and we also have the French Open, Quicken Loans National and Samoan Open amongst the other events.

Peter Fowler is the sole Aussie taking on a top field at the 2017 US Senior Open at the Salem Country Club in Peabody, Massachusetts.

The 58 year old five-time European Senior Tour winner finished T4 on the tour in Finland last week and is fronting up for his second senior major of the year.

The field for what is the third of five senior majors of the year includes the almost unstoppable Bernhard Langer, an infrequent visitor in Nick Faldo, and a sentimental favorite for many in Fred Couples.

Couples is in good form and apparently in good health, having won on the US Champions Tour on the weekend for the second time this season. The 57 year old Masters winner has two senior majors to his credit, the 2011 Senior Players Championship and 2012 Senior Open.

Langer has nine senior majors to his credit including two this year, the Regions Tradition and the Senior PGA Championship.

New world number one takes on KPMG Women’s PGA Championship

The victory by So Yeon Ryu at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship on the weekend catapulted the Korean to the world number one spot and this week she leads the field at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Olympia Fields Country Club near Chicago.

The second women’s major championship of the year features

19 of the top-20 players in the Rolex Rankings and 100 of the top-100 players on the LPGA Tour money.

Also in the field is world number two Ariya Jutanugarn, who did not play last week in Arkansas and lost the top spot in the Rolex Rankings after just three weeks.

There are six Aussie contenders including Minjee Lee, Suh Oh, Carrie Webb, Wendy Doolan, Katherine Kirk and Sarah Jane Smith.
