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 finds herself in Oregon for the Portland Classic this week in need of a rip-roaring finish to her season if she’s to retain her LPGA Tour playing rights for next year. 

The Jordanstown professional enjoyed an improved performance last week in Ontario as she claimed a top-40 finish at the CP Women’s Open but knows she’s in need of better if she’s to force her way into the top-80 on the money-list guaranteed their status for next year. 

Currently languishing outside the top-100 in 106th spot, Meadow proved back on home soil at the ISPS Handa World Invitational that she’s capable of a winning performance but will need to harness the positive energy from that experience and use it to secure her ultimate goal of LPGA Tour freedom next season. 

Leona Maguire meanwhile returns to Symetra Tour action after enjoying a week off following her top-10 finish at the World Invitational. 

Maguire has been a consistent performer Stateside all season having picked up two wins and amassed $84,149 that leaves the Cavan professional in 4th spot on the Volvik Race for the Card standings. Roughly $25,000 clear of 10th place, and with the top-10 in the standings assured of LPGA Tour status for next season, Maguire will be keen to leave nothing to chance when teeing up this week at the Sioux Falls GreatLIFE Challenge. 

Willow Run Golf Club in South Dakota is the host venue this week. A par-70 measuring 6,238 yards, Maguire will be aiming to take home a good chunk of the $225,000 prize purse to take the pressure of her ultimate goal of earning Main Tour status next year.
