Olympic Golf returned in 2016.  The significance of this event globally is HUGE!  

This golf course, built specifically for the Olympics, will be used as a public course once the Olympics are over.  Additional bonuses in the creation of the Rio course include the utilization of some fairly useless land. It helps to grow the game in Brazil, where there are no high-level players of note.  Congratulations to Gil Hans, who has persevered through thick and thin to get this project finished (with a few more grey hairs), and thanks to  of Golf Monthly for the story!

We take a look at the Reserva Marapendi Golf Course in Rio.

In less than twelve months time, golf will make its long-awaited return to one of the biggest sporting stages in the world.

At the 2016 Rio Olympics golf will be welcomed back after a 112 year absence, with some of the best players in the world set to compete for a gold medal.

There will be 60 professional men and women taking part, despite the call from many for the sport’s return to be open to amateurs only.

We decided to take a better look at what we already know about the course that the likes of Rory McIlroy will play for the very first time next August.

Thomas “Motion” Frank is a caddie for Kris Tamulis on the LPGA Tour.  

His life was turned upside down in the blink of an eye, as he received a message from his next-door neighbor that his house had burnt down.  The most remarkable thing about Frank is that he has stayed positive and upbeat throughout this harrowing ordeal.  We could all learn from Thomas on how to handle adversity.  See the good side – no lives lost.  Thank you, Beth Ann Nichols, of Golfweek, for such an inspiring story!

Thomas Frank woke up in paradise nearly two weeks ago and got the shock of his life.

A text message that said “call me” had popped up on his phone along with the picture of a scorched house.

Frank, a caddie on the LPGA since the summer of ’87, didn’t recognize the number but thought he recognized the house.

It was Frank’s neighbor in Houston, reaching out to deliver the nightmare news that while Frank was caddieing on Oahu, storms had flooded his neighborhood and lightning struck his home, setting it on fire. It took Frank about 40 hours to get home from Hawaii, only to find that firefighters had cut a hole in his roof to put out the fire. Everything inside had collapsed, all the sheet rock and insulation. And then more storms passed through.

“It was just a wet mess, I didn’t have the proper stuff to go in there, just a Home Depot mask.”

I have met people in my professional life who have bodies that are far from what we see as “athletic.”  

However, some of these people are awesome golfers and I can never forget the first American I ever met.  I was an assistant golf professional at Royal Johannesburg Golf Club and we had a large rotund member by the name of Sam Mc Cready.  Sam was a +2 handicap!  So yes, fitness is important for longevity and healthy life, but definitely not a requirement for good golf!  Ken Pierce of golfgym.com points out two super players.  One on the European Tour and one on the LPGA Tour who lacks an athletic body, yet has climbed to the top of their profession showing incredible golf skills!

Congratulations to Inbee Park & Kiradech Aphibarnrat on their wins this past weekend! Inbee Park is the World #1 Woman Player, and won her 7th Major Championship, the Ricoh Women’s British Open on Sunday. Kiradech Aphibarnrat is from Thailand and won his second European Tour title of the year on Sunday when he beat Robert Karlsson on the final hole to clinch the Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

These golfers are two great examples of, and make my point that, GOLF FITNESS IS NOT MEASURED BY YOUR WAISTLINE. Golf Fitness is based on your performance on the golf course. It is based on your ability to perform golf shots consistently and repeatedly…not whether you have six pack abs.

Your Golf Skill Level is not Determined by your Waistline!

Someone reading this post might think that I am being insensitive to these two young golfers. Actually, my theory that Golf Fitness is not measured by your waistline could not be more valid than for these two professional golfers.

As I have grown older, like a lot of golfers, I have lost some distance.  

I have come to realize that hitting the ball from the fairway still allows me to keep my scores at a reasonable level.  To lose clubhead speed and be hitting from the rough is no fun!  Check out these great tips from Michelle Wie, assisted by GOLF Magazine instruction editor David Denunzio on how to keep your drives in the short grass!
 
 

Michelle Wie: 3 Swing Thoughts for Better Drives.

Hitting it dead straight is just as important as raw power!

2014 U.S. Women’s Open champ Michelle Wie shares three things she focuses on to improve her drives.
Golf is a lot more fun when you’re splitting fairways. These four driving secrets helped me win last year’s U.S. Women’s Open. Use my moves to blast it farther and straighter than ever.

I’ve been driving it past most of the girls I’ve played against (and some of the boys) since I was 13. I’m 25 now, and my tee game has gotten better as I’ve grown older. At six feet tall with long arms and legs—my body was built to create swing speed. But you have to be long and straight to make it as a pro.

I’ve worked hard on improving my accuracy without sacrificing much distance.

A 26 percent increase in fairways hit since 2012—and a U.S. Women’s Open trophy—prove that I’m where I need to be.

My big secret to straight drives that soar over 250 yards on average? Leg power. I’m in the gym six days a week doing lower-body exercises. Strong legs help me minimize my hip turn in my backswing, creating more coil at the top. That coil is key. Hitting solid, accurate drives is like shooting an arrow: Pull the bowstring back taut and let ‘er rip. It’s as simple as that—and easier than you think.

You don’t need a lean, lanky frame to be a good driver. You just need to achieve four fundamental swing positions that, with a little practice, automatically increase your speed and improve your accuracy. So follow my step-by-step checklist and you’ll see that when you’re driving it far and straight, golf isn’t just more fun—it’s downright Wiesy.

1. Address: Don’t just set up to the ball – build a “power plant”

When weekend players stand at address, they usually think about the target, or more likely, the pond lurking on the right. Me? I think about my legs. I want them as sturdy and steady as possible, from my glutes to my calves. This lets me limit my hip turn when I start rotating my shoulders, maxing out my coil.

To start, do what I do: Take an extra-wide stance and plant each foot well outside your shoulders (photo, above). This broader base further restricts your hip turn. Then push out your knees so you look a bit bowlegged, like I do, and squat down a bit, pressing your spikes into the ground. Your legs are now engaged—the tightness signals that you’re ready to start your backswing.

“Activating” your legs this way helps you swing like an athlete. If your legs are as limp as noodles, they’ll collapse under the force of your motion. Even for non-power hitters, loose legs sink swings!

2. Backswing: Move everything except your lower body for a power-packed turn

Last season I hit nearly 67 percent of my fairways. That’s huge for me. And I found the short grass 70 percent of the time on my way to winning the U.S. Women’s Open at Pinehurst last June. The big difference has been simplifying my backswing. I used to try to turn everything going back. Take my advice: Simply turn your upper body and let your arms and hands come along for the ride. This makes it almost impossible to get off plane. That’s why activating your legs at address is so important; without a solid base, your lower body turns in sync with your upper, no matter how hard you try to stop it.

In my backswing, notice how my lower body (above) looks compared with its position at address (in Tip 1.). It’s a carbon copy! The Nike logo on my left quad hasn’t moved. And look at the coil (the difference in hip turn and shoulder turn) I’ve built up just halfway into my backswing. That’s power I’ll put to good use at impact.

Read on to see the next two Moves for longer and straighter drives!

Louise Suggs, a founding member of what is now known and the LPGA, has just passed away at 91 years. 

Her life story is amazing.  Suggs and the famous Babe Zaharias and Patty Berg created the Ladies Pro Tour in 1950.  In those early years, these talented golfers sometimes had to climb onto tractors to divide fairway from rough, they set the pin for each day’s round, and they had to woo the media to get attention for their tour.

Louise Suggs won 58 Pro Tournaments, including 11 Majors, and she was the first tour player to win the Career Grand Slam.  Amazingly enough, her career earnings totaled less than $200,000.00

Today’s LPGA Tour players give thanks to this heroic pioneer.  Read more on how Suggs once beat Sam Snead, who did not take it well.  And find out why Ben Hogan admired her greatly.  Thanks to Frank Litsky at NYTimes.com for this story.

Louise Suggs, a Georgia-born founder of the women’s professional golf tour and one of its most successful and outspoken players, died on Friday in Sarasota, Fla. She was 91.

Her death was announced by theLadies Professional Golf Association, which said she had been in hospice care.

Suggs turned professional in 1948 when she was the reigning United States and British amateur champion.

Two years later, she was one of 13 players who formed the L.P.G.A. She, Babe Didrikson Zaharias and Patty Berg were the main stars on the early tours.

“Figuring if we could maybe get some tournaments together, we could at least pick up a little pocket change,” Suggs once said. “We were so dumb that we didn’t know we couldn’t succeed. We survived and succeeded despite ourselves.”

In 1950, the women played 14 tournaments, with purses totaling $50,000. This year, the L.P.G.A. Tour encompasses 32 tournaments with purses totaling close to $60 million.

Suggs won 58 pro tournaments, including 50 on the tour. Her 11 major titles included the 1949 United States Women’s Open, which she won by 14 strokes, the most one-sided victory on the tour until Laura Davies won a tournament by 16 strokes in 1995. Suggs won every season of her professional career and in 1957, at the L.P.G.A. Championship, became the first player on the tour to capture the career Grand Slam, winning all of the tour’s major events. The L.P.G.A. Tour’s rookie of the year award is named after Suggs.

With all that success, Suggs’s career earnings totaled less than $200,000. And those earnings, or lack of them, remained a sore point for Suggs, who was always known to speak her mind. (Her automobile license plate read “TEED OFF.”) The Associated Press reported that in 2007, at an L.P.G.A. awards dinner at which Angela Park won the Rookie of the Year Award after earning $983,922 on the tour, Suggs declared, “I wish like hell I could have played for this kind of money, but if not for me, they wouldn’t be playing for it, either.”

She also expressed little tolerance for people she considered spoiled. That included today’s touring pros.

“They get mad now if they don’t have the right food in the locker room,” she said. “We were lucky if we got peanut butter and crackers. We paid to get things done.”

The early years of the tour, she recalled, were hardly glamorous.

“Some courses had so little grass, and it was in clumps,” she once said, “that we took farm machines, tractors with discs, to outline fairway and rough. Between rounds, we set the pins for the next day, called newspapers with the day’s scores and tried to charm potential sponsors.”

This weekend at Trump Turnberry Resort in Scotland, Inbee Park continues her quest for a career Grand Slam.

Young star Lydia Ko is trying to win her first Major, and Michelle Wie is bravely competing for the win with an injury to her left foot and other health issues.

Steve Douglas for Yahoo Sports says that “Trump will bring a circus some players would prefer not to see.”

For Michelle Wie’s comments on the ‘Donald,’ check out this story:

TURNBERRY, Scotland (AP) — Donald Trump turned a brief trip to a golf tournament in Scotland into an extension of his presidential campaign trail when he attended the Women’s Open at his plush Turnberry Resort on Thursday.

The first round of one of the high-profile events in women’s golf wound up being a mere sideshow from the moment the Republican arrived at the course with family members in his private helicopter, declaring “the world has asked me to be here.”

Questions to Trump were restricted to golf and his future plans for Turnberry, the world’s media had been warned.

It didn’t turn out that way.

Wearing a red hat emblazoned with his campaign slogan “Make America Great Again,” the billionaire celebrity businessman spoke of how he would “get along very well” with Russian President Vladimir Putin and make the U.S military “so strong that nobody would mess with us,” if he became president.

Trump, whose grandmother was born in Scotland, also weighed in on British politics, saying he hoped there would not be another independence referendum in Scotland for 50 years because of the “bedlam and confusion” with last year’s vote.

Great Stories at Women's Open . . . Trump not one of them!

For the golf industry, though, his comments have been problematic.

The Women’s British Open, the fourth of five major championships, is the biggest event to stage a tournament at one of Trump’s 18 golf properties since his disparaging comments about Mexicans during his presidential campaign announcement last month. Trump said that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S., and some are rapists.

Golf authorities have distanced themselves from his remarks and an October tournament on one of Trump’s courses in Los Angeles — the Grand Slam of Golf — The organizers decided to move the tournament.

It was too late, though, for a potential change in venue for the Women’s British Open, and Michelle Wie — one of the stars of the women’s tour — said this week she believes Trump’s presence at Turnberry will distract from the competition.

The Women’s British Open is being played at Turnberry this week.  

Turnberry is a great golf course set on the Ayshire Coast and instantly recognizable by the iconic lighthouse out on the course’s far side.  Several great storylines are developing, and Bill Fields of espnW.com asks 5 important questions to figure out the final outcome!
Important Questions on this week's Women's British Open!

Getty Images – Michelle Wie matched her best result of the year in the U.S. Women’s Open, and Lydia Ko is coming off a fourth-place finish in Scotland.

The fourth of five 2015 LPGA major championships.  The Ricoh Women’s British Open will be held Thursday-Sunday on the Ailsa course at Turnberry Resort on Scotland’s southwestern coast.

It is the second time play in this event has been at Turnberry.  Best known as the site of Tom Watson’s stirring victory over Jack Nicklaus in the 1977 Open Championship.  And Watson’s second-place finish in the 2009 Open at age 59, when he led going to the final hole. Australian Karrie Webb won the Women’s British at Turnberry in 2002.  A year after the championship made the change to a LPGA major.

Established stars and upstarts have made an impact so far this season on the LPGA Tour.

Here are five questions in advance of the Women’s British Open.  American Mo Martin will defend her inspiring victory of a year ago.

Important Questions on this week's Women's British Open!

Bothered by bursitis in her left hip and a bone spur in her left foot, Michelle Wie sat out the last two tournaments to rest.

1. What can we expect from injury-riddled Michelle Wie?

Wie, 25, matched her best result of the year in the U.S. Women’s Open at Lancaster Country Club, finishing 11th despite continuing to play with injuries that caused her to limp noticeably at times. Wie did not play in the past two events, the Marathon Classic and Meijer LPGA Classic, in an effort to recover from bursitis in her left hip and a bone spur in her left foot that have been plaguing her for several months.

She seemed in good spirits during a Monday morning practice round in Scotland, tweeting, “Team Wie is loving Turnberry so far!!”

It will be interesting to see if the rest has helped Wie, who also has dramatically revamped her stance with instructor David Leadbetter — making it much narrower — to take stress off her left side. Wie has shown an admirably gritty spirit in competing while she has been hurt.  But she needs to heal to play the kind of winning golf she did in the first half of 2014.

2. Do those who played last week in Scotland have an edge?

Much is made each summer of the men who do or don’t play in Great Britain the week prior to the Open Championship. By winning the Claret Jug two weeks ago on the Old Course after competing at the John Deere Classic in Illinois, Zach Johnson offered a rebuke to those who say arriving earlier abroad is a plus. (Two years ago, Phil Mickelson notably won the Scottish Open the week before capturing the Open at Muirfield.)

The debate about which strategy is best is relevant this week, too. While the Meijer LPGA Classic was on in Michigan last week, the Ladies Scottish Open, a Ladies European Tour stop, was held at Dundonald Links in Scotland.

Two LPGA stars, World No. 2 Lydia Ko and No. 6 Suzann Pettersen, passed up Michigan for Ayrshire and had good weeks — Ko tying for fourth place and Pettersen finishing second.

For Ko, it was her third top-six finish in her last four tournaments — she tied for 12th in the U.S. Women’s Open in the other — which should give her some confidence at Turnberry. When Ko won her seventh career LPGA title the week she turned 18 earlier this year, a major victory seemed imminent. But she went through a rough patch going into the Women’s PGA.  She missed the first cut of her LPGA career. Her game is trending in the right direction again now.  She could be a serious factor this week.

Next month, a victory at Turnberry or in the Evian Championship would make Ko the youngest winner of an LPGA major.

Which would be fitting given her teenage success.

Every player on both the PGA and LPGA Tour has their own unique personality.  

This is a fun article by Golf Swing by Swing to match their personalities with current cars.  I really like Rickie Fowler matching up with a Mustang – Boss 429.  Suits him perfectly!  What would you be?  My favorite car when I was younger was a Jaguar Mark 10.  Sleek and luxurious.  That’s me!

Adam Scott

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

The Australian moves serenely along every track, cruising over every bump. He’s a luxury model, but with plenty of power under the bonnet. He’s a Bentley.

Ian Poulter

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

You could never accuse the Englishman of being understated, or quiet. He is a big, noisy but expensive Lamborghini Huracan, finished in bright yellow, with pink trim. And green tires!

Paula Creamer

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

Pretty and pink. Powerful and pink. Practical and pink. A Mini Cooper. A pink Mini Cooper, obviously.

Rickie Fowler

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

It doesn’t really matter, as long as it is bright orange and has something big, powerful and noisy under the hood. We are thinking maybe a Ford Mustang – Boss 429.

Rory McIlroy

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

www.sutton-images.com
Valtteri Bottas (FIN) Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ at Mercedes-AMG F1 W09 EQ Power+ Launch and First Run, Silverstone, England, 22 February 2018.

Rory is the best. Rory is the biggest hitter. Rory’s swing is a thing of beauty. Rory McIlroy is a world beater. He is a winner. McIlroy is a Mercedes Formula One racing car.

Henrik Stenson

Which car matches a PGA or LPGA Tour Player's Personality?

You think that because Stenson is Swedish, safe and reliable that we are going to compare him with a Volvo, don’t you? When did you last see a Volvo engine blowing up? When did you last see a Volvo self-harming? No, Stenson is an Alfa Romeo.

The 70th U.S. Women’s Open is being played from July 9-12 at Lancaster Country Club in southeast Pennsylvania.

The LPGA is the fastest growing tour in sports right now. The number of new and exciting young stars is fantastic. Stacy Lewis, Paula Creamer, Lydia Ko, Michelle Wie, Lexi Thompson, and Inbee Park are on that list. Many new tournaments have been added, and some include additional features like the KPMG Tournament’s Women’s Leadership Summit, a great inspirational experience for young women.

The women’s tour is very fan-friendly, so plan to take your kids to one of these events where they interact more with youngsters.

The world’s top female golfers and some very talented amateurs will compete at the U.S. Open, as it continually reigns as the world’s greatest women’s championship. Tune in and enjoy the excitement!

Jessica Korda, Michelle Wie, and Charley Hull are young stars in the women’s game.

The LPGA Tour has rebounded from the doldrums of 2008 and is one of the best tours in the world right now.

There are young stars ready to win, and the veterans are still competitive.

Even though Michelle Wie has been around the ladies game for nearly 10 years, she is finally maturing and already has a win on the LPGA Tour this year.

Through 13 events in 2014 only one winner is over the age of 30. Thirty-nine-year-old Karrie Webb won both the ISPS Handa Women’s Australian Open and the JTBC Founders Cup.

Jessica Korda (21), Anna Nordqvist (26) and Stacy Lewis (29) are the other multiple winners this season.

Lewis won the Shoprite LPGA Classic this week and will reclaim the No. 1 spot on the Rolex Rankings.

Youngsters Lydia Ko, Lexi Thompson and Lizette Salas have also won this year and seem to challenge every week.

The LPGA Tour is deep with talent, and every tournament offers exciting action for golf fans.
