Photos from the WGC-Accenture Match Play

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the WGC-Accenture Match Play at The Golf Club at Dove Mountain in Marana, Ariz. Jack Nicklaus designed the lengthy 7.791 yard par 72 layout, which was built into the Arizona desert just outside of Tucson.

The 64-man field is without Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Adam Scott. Due to their absence, the four No.1 seeds were given to Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson, 2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose and reigning FedEx Cup champion Henrik Stenson.

Matt Kuchar, left with a No. 2 seed, will attempt to become the only back-to-back champion at the event since Tiger Woods won in 2003 and 2004. Kuchar held off Hunter Mahan in last year’s final match to win 2 & 1, keeping Mahan from defending his 2012 title.

Steve Stricker, who has settled on a limited schedule at this point in his career, will make his 2014 debut despite recent family issues. He has been given a No.3 seed in the bracket.

Wednesday’s photos from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2019 Terra Cotta Invitational at Naples National Golf Club, which will be contested April 26-28. Past winners of the amateur event include Justin Thomas and Emiliano Grillo.

Denny Glass, chairman of the Terra Cotta Invitational, was kind enough to give us a little more information about the tournament.

For GolfWRX members who aren’t familiar, tell me a little bit about the tournament and its history

Glass: The Terra Cotta Invitational began in 1996 and was originally a combination stroke play/match play event. 20 players were invited and they played 36 holes of stroke play then the top four finishers went on to match play with the others playing an 18 hole consolation match.

I changed it to a 54-hole stroke play event with 50 players in 2006 when I took over as Tournament Chair. This was done to be eligible for Titleist/Golfweek Amateur Ranking Points. The field increased over the years and now has 75-81 players. The tournament is now ranked as a “B” level event in the WAGR (World Amateur Golf Rankings) run by the USGA and R&A. This ranking is one level below the top-ranked events in the world. The WAGR rankings are based on the strength of the field so we are proud to be ranked so highly.

As it’s an invitational tournament, can you tell me a bit about who gets invited in general and who’s in the field this year, specifically? Tournament format?

Glass: It is an invitational so we invite as many of the top-ranked amateur players as are available. The field consists of many juniors (up to age 18), mid-amateurs (19-25) and some seniors (50+), along with collegiate players. While it is an invitational, we still receive more than 150 applications to play.

Can you talk about the host course and the relationship with Naples National?

The tournament is played at Naples National Golf Club. The tournament was started by the membership back in 1996. The club opened in 1993. The club hosted the World Championship of Golf, which was an LPGA event in its second year.

I know the charitable impact is important. Can you tell us about that?

The net proceeds are donated to Naples based children’s focused charities. The tournament has donated over $517,000 since it began.

Wednesday’s photos from the 2019 Masters

Published

on

GolfWRX is live this week from the 2019 Masters Tournament at Augusta National Golf Club (par 72: 7,475 yards) in Augusta, Georgia. The famed home of the season-opening major was designed by Bobby Jones and Alistair McKenzie and first opened for play in 1933.

The field this year, which consists of only 86 players — the smallest field since 1997 (also 86 players) — and player fewer than last year’s tournament. Rory McIlroy’s pursuit of the career grand slam, Dustin Johnson arriving at Augusta in his best form since his 2017 slip-and-fall, and Tiger Woods quest for major number 15 have dominated pre-tournament headlines.

You can see the full Masters odds here.
