Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #5

The beauty of Open Championship golf and links golf for that matter is that it demands a variety of shots scarcely seen across the weekly haunts of the PGA and European Tours. Here's two great examples

Open Championship – Top-10 Greatest Hits – #6

Who could forget the image of Jordan Spieth way right, deep into the dunes, faced with an unplayable lie, his procession towards a first Open Championship in serious jeopardy

Stephanie Meadow fired six birdies to move inside the top-40 at the CP Women’s Open in Ontario.

With winning out of reach this week, Meadow, who sits in 110th spot on the money-list, is in desperate need of a fast finish to boost her chances of a top-80 place amongst the players guaranteed their LPGA Tour status next year.

Fresh off thrilling her home supporters when winning the World Invitational at Galgorm Castle last week, Meadow carded a moving day four-under par round of 68 but will need more of the same, if not better in this evening’s final round at Magna Golf Club.

Rolex Rankings No. 1 Jin Young Ko and Nicole Broch Larsen are tied atop the leaderboard at -18 heading into Sunday’s final round but with Canadian phenom Brooke Henderson sitting two strokes behind at -16, the trophy is anything but secure.

Ko and Henderson both returned 65s on Saturday, tied for the low round of the day, while Broch Larsen carded her third consecutive 66. Much to the chagrin of the throngs of Canadian fans, Henderson was 2 over through seven holes. But a special encounter with a young fan turned the switch for Henderson. She was 9 under through her final 11 holes, with an eagle at No. 12 and seven birdies, to surge back up the leaderboard.

“It was a little bit of a struggle there. I felt like I was playing decent golf. Just wasn’t really going my way,” said Henderson. “Then on the seventh green a little boy gave me a high five and then he continued that the rest of the round. I think starting at the time he kind of cheered me up a little bit. I think I tried to get back to even on the front nine. Going to eight tee, I was trying to just make two birdies, get it back to even and then see if I could go really low on the back, which I did.”
