Marion Hollins To Be Inducted Into World Golf Hall of Fame PDF Print E-mail

 

 

 

 


ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (April 17, 2020) – Marion Hollins, one

of the only female golf course developers in history, will be inducted into

the World Golf Hall of Fame as part of its Class of 2021. Joining Tiger

Woods, who was announced last month, Hollins was selected through the

Contributor category for her impact as a visionary golf course architect

and pioneer of the game.



Winner of the 1921 United States Amateur and captain of the first American

Curtis Cup team in 1932, Marion Hollins’ influence on the game stretched

beyond the fairways of competitive play. One of history’s few female golf

course developers, she took a lead role in developing the Monterey

Peninsula into a golf mecca, which is now home to some of the biggest

tournaments in play.

 


“When you start reading about Marion Hollins, you realize what a trailblazer

she was,” said Annika Sorenstam. “In her era, she didn’t have many

resources with the status of women in sports and golf. To be that kind of

trailblazer with that kind of enthusiasm and energy and get into course

development and design is very inspirational. She was an advocate for

women and changed the landscape of the game.”

 


Credited with being the first woman to conceive and build a planned unit

development with a golf course as a central feature, she played a major

role in the founding and formation of two of golf’s most iconic courses,

Cypress Point and Pasatiempo. Hollins was a collaborator with Hall of Famer

Alister MacKenzie on multiple projects; he credited her for the design of the

16th at Cypress Point. She also developed a friendship with the legendary

Bobby Jones and influenced the development of Augusta National when she

traveled there on MacKenzie’s behalf.



Hollins is the second Inductee in the Class of 2021, joining Tiger Woods,

who was announced last month. The additional members of the 2021 Class

will be announced in the coming days.



“Marion Hollins is most deserving of this honor,” said Greg McLaughlin, CEO

of World Golf Foundation. “She was a principal force of the game, the

visionary of some of today’s greatest courses, and I am grateful that her

contributions will be celebrated as part of the 2021 Class and thereafter

in the World Golf Hall of Fame.”

Hatton Wins at the King's House PDF Print E-mail

 

Tyrrell Hatton celebrates in his new red cardigan after winning at Bayhill




Orlando, FL - Tyrrell Hatton outlasted an impressive field in stage two

of the windy Florida Swing to capture his first PGA Tour victory.  The

King's house played as tough as it has in recent memory, Arnie would

have appreciated the U.S Open that broke out on his layout this week.

 

The 28 year old Englishman was one of only four players to break par

for the week, finishing at 4 under par after a final round 74. Four inch

rough, baked out greens and constant 20+ mph wind gusts made the

field look silly at times. So much so, that World No.3 Brooks Koepka

shot the highest score of his career - 81 on Saturday. Looking to gain

momentum after 36 holes, he moved out of contention completely.

 

Ecstatic after tapping in for his maiden triumph on U.S soil (by one

stroke over 2017 API Champion Marc Leishman), Hatton said, "To hold

on and win here at such an iconic venue, I'm over the moon."

 

Last week's Honda Classic winner Sungjae Im finished two shots back

after a 73 on Sunday. World No.1 Rory McIlroy was just two shots back

after 54 holes, but struggled to a final round 76, finishing at even par.

Sungjae Im Conquers the Bear Trap Wins Honda PDF Print E-mail

 

Sungjae Im hoists the crystal after taming the Bear Trap at PGA National



Palm Beach Gardens - Sungjae Im began the day 3 shots behind 54 hole

leader and world No.12 Tommy Fleetwood, as he entered the toughest 3

hole stretch on tour, he knew he was striking it well, so he decided to go

flag hunting. Im played the Bear Trap in two under par, making birdie

at the par 3 15th and 17th. A solid par from the fairway sand on 16, and

a clutch par save from the bunker on the last got Im into the clubhouse

holding a one shot lead (at 6 under par) after his final round 66.


54 hole leader Tommy Fleetwood struggled to make putts all day, and

found himself two back after bogeys at the 6th, 8th and 13th holes.

Finally, the Englishman poured one in on the 17th to give himself a

chance as he walked to the 18th tee just one back. Fleetwood smoked

his tee shot on 18, setting up the perfect scenario to claim his first PGA

Tour title - birdie to tie (and head to a playoff with Im) or an eagle to

outright win. Fleetwood went for the heroic shot, a high fade 5 wood to

the back right hole location, but he blocked it right into the water - Game

Over. 21 year old South Korean Sungjae Im had won the 2020 Honda Classic.


You live or die by the shots you hit, Fleetwood said. "I had a chance on

the last, the swing wasn't there all day and I had a few iffy shots in me.

I didn't get anything out of the round until 17. It was such a great moment,

I felt great walking to the last and hit a great tee shot."


Im was proud after the victory, "I've been in this spot many times and

just gaining the experience throughout the weeks and that really helped

me stay in the moment," Im explained through his interpreter.


Fleetwood finished third at -4, Mackenzie Hughes fired a Sunday 66 to

finish solo second at 5 under par.

Reed Outlasts the Field at WGC Mexico PDF Print E-mail

 

Reed celebrates after capturing the WGC Mexico Championship

 

 



Mexico City - Patrick Reed bogeyed the 72nd hole, but not before making

3 consecutive birdies to finish 18 under par, one shot clear of Bryson

DeChambeau to claim victory at the WGC Mexico Championship. The newly

bulked up DeChambeau, who led after 36 holes missed a 19 foot birdie

putt at the last to fire a final round 65 for 17 under par.


Reed added a bit of drama at the last, taking iron off the tee and pushing

the shot right (into the trees) where he took three to reach the green.

Needing only two putts to win, he converted to win his second WGC Mexico

title (his first was when the event was previously played at Doral's Blue

Monster - known as the WGC Cadillac Championship).

 

"It's very rewarding," Reed said after the victory. "My team and I have

worked so hard through the end of last year and the beginning of this

year. We feel like we were playing some good golf and we weren't quite

able to get over that hump. At the end of the day, just putting yourself

in these positions on Sunday is unbelievable and it's a great feeling. I can't

wait to get home to celebrate with the little ones and my wife and bring

home the trophy."


Rahm and Van Rooyen finished 3 shots back at 15 under par, Rory McIlroy

shot a final round 68 to finish at 14 under par.
