But the 32-year-old Victorian did not see it bury into the hole because the hole dog-legs to the left, and his view was blocked by trees. He always has a gallery with him at Rosebud where he and his entire family have played for some years, and they let him know. They are a shot ahead of New South Welshmen Nathan Barbieri, Lincoln Tighe and Jordan Zunic, who all shot 7-under 64s today. Obviously I know the course, I’ve played here for over 20 years, I know the ins and outs. The Queenslander made two eagles – one at the seventh when his 5-iron second shot stopped five feet from the flag, and at the 16th where his approach with the same club was also close – which plainly helped.
He has history in his sights yet Deyen Lawson is determined to stay in the moment as he seeks to close out a wire-to-wire win at the Nexus Advisernet WA Open in Perth. Yet rather than ponder a place in Australian golf folklore, Lawson reiterated the mantra that has been on repeat all week. “Just be where my feet are and try and play solid,” Lawson said of his final-round approach. Saturday also saw the first round of the WA Open All Abilities Championship, Cameron Pollard 10 shots clear following a superb round of five-over 75. Play will commence at 7.51am AWST on Sunday morning with the lead group to tee off at 9.52am.3 months ago PGA of Australia

“Obviously, the Olympics just adds to the prestige of the golf club to go with the hosting of the PGA,” Morgan said. He’s won an Aussie Amateur and the PGA around here,” Smith said when predicting Morgan to be in contention for a second PGA title at RQ. Cam’s done it (back-to-back Australian PGA wins) and he’s someone I’ve looked up to since a young age. “The pressure I’ve had to deal with this year is pressure I’ve never really felt before. He’s a really good golfer, and an even better bloke, who has definitely learnt from the year,” Smith added.2 months ago PGA of Australia
RIDGELAND, S.C. – A decade after first getting to the top of the golf world as a bushy-haired 22-year-old from Northern Ireland, Rory McIlroy will wake up Monday as world No. Even with two closing bogeys, McIlroy would shoot 4-under 67 to finish at 17-under 267, edging Kurt Kitayama (67) by a shot. Now it's all about going forward and trying to just keep this going.”There was a time one could tell how Rory McIlroy was performing on the golf course just by viewing his gait. An in-form version of McIlroy, which was on full display on Sunday, can produce that sort of separation. A LOOK AT RORY MCILROY'S TIME AT WORLD NO.3 months ago PGA Tour
MAZATLÁN, Mexico—After an opening round that provided a nine-way tie for the lead, American Declan Kenny broke away from the pack by firing a bogey-free 65 in the second round of the PGA TOUR Latinoamérica’s third Qualifying Tournament for the 2022-23 season. Moving to 12-under 132, while recording only one bogey through 36 holes, Kenny finished the day two shots clear of Mexico’s Jorge Villar and fellow American Daniel Hudson, who share the second spot at 10-under. His eight-birdie, bogey-free performance, turned him into the best of 18 Mexicans in the field at Estrella del Mar Country Club. “I hit a good tee shot on 9, 10, 11, which kind of sets you up pretty well for birdie. You don’t really have to hit the best second shot as long as the tee shot is good.2 months ago PGA Tour
