Casey Martin Qualifies With Golf Cart for Return to U.S. Open-
Casey Martin again will be riding a cart for the U.S. Open at the Olympic Club, qualifying for the golf season’s second major championship six years after ending his professional career. Martin, who successfully sued the U.S. PGA Tour in 2001 for the right to ride a cart because of a degenerative circulatory disorder, was the medalist in yesterday’s U.S. Open sectional qualifying.

The 40-year-old Martin rode a cart during local and sectional qualifying and will use a single-rider vehicle when the U.S Open begins on June 14 in San Francisco, the United States Golf Association said on its website. Click here to read the full story

Love Qualifies for spot in his 23rd US Open-
Davis Love III is going back to The Olympic Club for the U.S. Open, this time as the 48-year-old Ryder Cup captain and not the reigning PGA champion. Love qualified for the U.S. Open for the third time in the last six years with a 139 at Scioto Country Club and Ohio State’s Scarlet Course. Love, who finished tied for 16th at the Memorial on Sunday, said it never crossed his mind to just bag it and go home rather than extend an already long week by playing 36 more holes.

If you’re looking for the best feel-good story, check out what happened to Dennis Miller. No, not that Dennis Miller. Miller, a 42-year-old pro from Youngstown, Ohio, began Monday with long odds of qualifying for the national championship.

After making sizable putts to stay alive on the second and third holes of sudden death, he had this long attempt to finally realize his dream. Sit back and enjoy what happened next:

10 interesting photos from Tuesday at the Zurich Classic

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2018 Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana, where, among other things, a giant three-legged crocodile roams.

Now in it’s second year, the tournament’s unique two-man team format has attracted a wealth of top talent, including 10 of the top 14 golfers in the OWGR. We’re on the scene snapping bag pictures and have five galleries from TPC Louisiana’s range Tuesday. We also have a look inside Ryan Ruffels bag, a peek at Jimmy Walker’s putter, a look in Brooks Koepka’s bag, and more!

Let’s dig in.

Well, this certainly is interesting, Xinjun Zhang. Not sure about the context, but not something you traditionally see on a PGA Tour driving range…

Hard not to love Ryan Ruffels’ 009M

Look’s like Michael Greller is enjoying some well-earned relaxation

Ryan Palmer boldly going where few Tour pros dare to: serif font

Roman numeral loft stamping? Savage grind? We like your style, Bud Cauley

Is this a new Wilson Staff PMP wedge prototype or a one-off thing for Ricky Barnes?

Finally, Whitney comes to a wedge

Ham & egg!

Tuesday’s Photos from the 2018 Zurich Classic

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the 2018 Zurich Classic at TPC Louisiana (par 72; 7,425 yards), designed by Pete Dye with consultants Steve Elkington and Kelly Gibson.

The Zurich Classic is a unique event on the PGA Tour because it’s not an individual stroke-play event. Instead, the format consists of two-man teams playing best-ball on Thursday and Saturday, and alternate-shot on Friday and Sunday.

Last year, Cameron Smith and Jonas Blixt won the event after four playoff holes against Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown. The Smith/Blixt duo will be back to defend their title, and the Kisner/Brown pairing will be back avenging their loss.

Other notable pairings in the field include Daniel Berger/Gary Woodland, Wesley Bryan/Jon Rahm, Patrick Reed/Patrick Cantlay, John Daly/Rory Sabbatini, Jason Day/Ryan Ruffels, David Duval/Jim Furyk, Tony Finau/Daniel Summerhays, Sergio Garcia/Rafa Cabrera Bello, J.B. Holmes/Brand Snedeker, Matt Kuchar/Bubba Watson, Louis Oosthuizen/Charl Schwartzel, Sean O’Hair/Jimmy Walker, Pat Perez/Jason Dufner, Justin Rose/Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth/Ryan Palmer, Justin Thomas/Bud Cauley and more!
