GolfWRX is live this week from the 2015 Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn. The course will measure around 6,841 yards and play as a par-70.

Although it falls the week after the U.S. Open, the Travelers boasts a strong field, including Bubba Watson, ranked No. 5 in the current Official World Golf Rankings, Sergio Garcia (No. 9), Patrick Reed (No. 15), Billy Horschel (No. 19) and Brandt Snedeker (No. 25).

Last year, Kevin Streelman birdied his last seven holes, firing a 28 on the back-nine to win by one shot over Garcia and K.J. Choi.

    That’s a very funny R15 430. So you DO want more spin, huh?

      Lead tape doesn’t change the cg enough to make a driver spin more or less its just for swing weight

        Might have been a reference to the weights being so fast apart

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.
