Discover Golf : August 2017
What a massive month of golf we witnessed during August. Major Championships, a WGC event, a FedExCup Playoffs event and the Solheim Cup. Didn’t the biggest names in golf relish these special occasions! The month started with Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama scoring an emphatic five-shot victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. On the same day across the ditch, Korea’s In-Kyung Kim won her maiden major title at the Women’s British Open. The following week Justin Thomas collected his first major at the PGA Championship. Swede Henrik Stenson followed JT in the PGA Tour’s winners’ circle after claiming the Wyndham Championship. While in the women’s game Team USA made it back-to-back Solheim Cup wins over Europe. And last Sunday, Dustin Johnson pulled off a thrilling win over Jordan Spieth in the opening FedExCup Playoffs event to win The Northern Trust. Speaking of the FedExCup Playoffs, we feature the lucrative end-of-season series including three memorable moments. If you’re looking to spring into September with some new gear, we feature new products from FootJoy, Callaway and Odyssey. And, don’t forget to check out our selection of wonderful escorted tours. Here’s to discovering golf and seeing the world.
