Brooke Henderson primed for National Championship run

On Monday at Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club, local favorite and World No. 10 Brooke Henderson hosted the inaugural “Brooke and Friends Pro-Am,” featuring 15 of her fellow LPGA pros, retired Ottawa Senators Daniel Alfredsson and Chris Phillips, and several lucky amateurs. The event raised funds for the Golf Canada Foundation, benefitting their player engagement and junior golf programs, and the Team Henderson Foundation, benefiting the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario. And if the scores of fans lining the fairways on a day where the scores didn’t even count is a sign, the CP Women’s Open is in for a packed week.

“I was out with my group and we were having fun, and all of a sudden there were hundreds of people watching, and it was a Monday Pro-Am,” said Henderson, a CP ambassador who is playing in her sixth CP Women’s Open. “Still like four days away from competition, and they were out there cheering me on. It was kind of relaxing. It kind of got my mindset on I can handle this.” 


Great Britain and Ireland Walker Cup team announced

The R&A today announced the Great Britain and Ireland team to face the USA in the 46th Walker Cup match which will be played at Los Angeles Country Club on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 September.

GB&I will be aiming to defend the trophy after securing a 16½-9½ victory in the 2015 match at Royal Lytham & St Annes; their biggest winning margin since the match was first played in 1922.


Pedro Lencart wins 91st Boys Amateur Championship at Nairn

Portugal’s Pedro Lencart defeated defending champion Falko Hanisch 5&4 to win the 91st Boys Amateur Championship at Nairn on Sunday.

Lencart, who won The R&A’s Junior Open in 2016, becomes the first player since Sergio Garcia to win both titles. He will now play in the 123rd Amateur Championship at Royal Aberdeen and Murcar Links, and gains an exemption into Final Qualifying for The 147th Open as a result of his victory.


Otaegui stuns home favourite to win maiden title in Germany

Adrian Otaegui produced a stunning fightback to beat home favourite Marcel Siem 2 and 1 and win his first European Tour title at the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play. Siem was three up at the turn and two up with five holes to play but Otaegui won the 14th with a par and then made three birdies in a row to claim his maiden win in his 123rd event.

The Spaniard arrived at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach off the back of four consecutive top 20 finishes, and was the form player heading into the final having completed all five previous matches without reaching the 18th hole.


USA retain Solheim Cup with thumping 16.5-11.5 win

It was a red, white and blue day in West Des Moines, Iowa on Sunday. In a singles session that featured tight battles across the scoreboard, Team USA won five matches and kept the Solheim Cup on U.S. soil with a 16.5 to 11.5 victory over Team Europe. The five-point victory margin is the USA's largest win since 1996, and it also forever links USA Captain Juli Inkster's name with the great Judy Rankin as the only women for either side to lead two victorious Solheim Cup Teams.

"I'm just proud of my team," said Inkster, who previously led the USA to victory in Germany in 2015. "The Europeans fought hard today. They made it really close. I really haven't been nervous all week. But today I was a little bit nervous. So it's just an honor to captain this team and I'm really proud of the girls." 


European Challenge Tour: Sordet crowned Viking king

Clément Sordet cruised to his third European Challenge Tour title by carding a final round of 67 to win the inaugural edition of the Viking Challenge by five shots.

Heavy rain earlier in the week had caused the competition to be reduced to 54 holes, with the final round at Miklagard Golf taking place today.


Jason Norris runs away with Fiji International

Australian Jason Norris kept his cool to sign for a closing five-under-par 67, claiming the biggest victory yet in his 21-year professional career with a convincing four-shot victory at the tri-sanctioned Fiji International on Sunday.

Norris, who was thinking of quitting the game a few years ago, revived his career after firing eight birdies against three bogeys to cap a winning total of 14-under-par 274 at the Natadola Bay Championship Golf Course.


Lily May Humphreys wins Girls Amateur Championship

Lily May Humphreys won the Girls British Open Amateur Championship at Enville today, defeating Emilie Overas 7&5 in the 18-hole final to seal the biggest win of her amateur career.

Following today’s triumph, the 15-year-old has earned an exemption into Final Qualifying for the Ricoh Women’s British Open next year and will aim to secure a place in the starting field at Royal Lytham & St Annes.


Siem seeks victory on home soil

Marcel Siem continued his brilliant run at the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play as he beat Robert Rock on the first play off hole to advance to the semi finals at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The home favourite is 124th in the Race to Dubai Rankings presented by Rolex but has found his form in spectacular style and is now just two wins from a fifth European Tour title.
