PGA Tour pro calls for Nelly Korda to be given exemption into men’s event

Published

on

Nelly Korda has been a dominant force in women’s golf this season. She’s already amassed six victories including a major championship this year and will be looking to add another at this week’s U.S. Women’s Open.

Last year, LPGA Tour player Lexi Thompson received an exemption into a men’s PGA Tour event, and Tour player Michael Kim believes the same opportunity should be afforded to Korda.

Kim also listed the events he thinks Nelly could be successful in.

Most fans on social media replying to Kim’s post don’t agree with his suggestion.

It’s unclear if playing in a PGA Tour event is even something Korda would be interested in.

This isn’t new for the world number eight, as she’s been seen smoking while playing in the past, including at last week’s Mizuho Americas Open.

Hull is looking to win her first major this week after finishing 2nd in last year’s U.S. Women’s Open.

Published

on

Lexi Thompson has announced that she is to retire from full-time competitive golf at this season’s end.

Thompson revealed her retirement plans via the USGA ahead of this week’s U.S. Open. The 29-year-old met with media today at Lancaster Country Club, where spoke to the toll playing professional golf takes on athletes.

Video below via Golf Digest:

Thompson also stated, “There’s more things to life than going to a tournament every week and doing the same training every day.”

Thompson said the following in a video on Instagram:

“While it is never easy to say goodbye, it is indeed time. 2024, I will be stepping away from a full professional golf schedule. I’m excited to enjoy the remainder of the year as there are still goals I want to accomplish.

“I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life. Time with family, friends, and my trusted companion Leo. I will always look for ways to contribute to the sport and inspire the next generation of golfers. And of course, I look forward to a little time for myself.”

This week’s U.S. Open will be Thompson’s 18th consecutive start in the U.S. Women’s Open.

Thompson won the 2014 ANA Inspiration (now Chevron Championship) and notched 11 LPGA Tour victories, as well as representing the United States in the Solheim Cup six times during her illustrious career.

‘Unacceptable’ – Adam Hadwin rips airline over misplaced clubs

Published

on

Adam Hadwin became one of the stars of last year’s Canadian Open after he was tackled by a security guard while he was celebrating Nick Taylor’s playoff victory.

This year, Hadwin is just hoping his clubs arrive on time.

After yet another airline debacle involving missing clubs, the 36-year-old took to X to express his displeasure with the situation.

Hadwin has a strong history at the Canadian Open, finishing T12 last year and 6th in 2019, which is the most recent time that Hamilton has hosted the event.

Hopefully, Adam will be able to compete in his country’s National Open with his own set of clubs.
