Discover Golf : October 2018
The new PGA Tour season is under way and Aussie Marc Leishman has kicked off his 2018/19 campaign with a win at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia. The likeable Victorian, who will soon represent his country at the World Cup of Golf in Melbourne, outclassed the quality field by five shots. A week later, Brooks Koepka proved he is the hottest thing in golf reaching the coveted world No. 1 ranking after collecting the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea. We wrap wins to Xander Schauffele and Nelly Korda. At just 25 years of age, Schauffele grabbed his third PGA Tour title at the WGC-HSBC Champions. Korda joined her older sister Jessica in the winner’s circle on the LPGA Tour. There have only been three sets of sisters in LPGA history to win on that tour. Speaking of achievements, our very own Jan Stephenson will be inducted into World Golf Hall of Fame in 2019. Stephenson, who was a trailblazer for the women’s game in the 70s and 80s, earned three major championships. In travel, the featured dream golfing getaway is Bavaria. This tour delivers the magic and fairytale romance of Europe’s heartland visiting Germany, Austria and the Czech Republic. The tour gets under way in June 2019! Here’s to discovering golf and seeing the world. Sam Gole, editor Publisher: Discover Golf Pty Ltd Email: email@example.com Phone: 0412 230 769 welcome VOL 09 | 2018 comp winner: TREVOR PHILLIPS.
