The focus of golf during the past 30 days shifted from the dominant PGA Tour to Europe.  

Strength of fields, enhanced purses and exceptional golf courses made the summer stretch leading up to the British Open – the French, Irish and Scottish opens – the place to be in professional golf.

 



Grace’s 62 vs. Miller’s 63

Congrats to Branden Grace for shooting a great round, 62 on Saturday at the British Open (“Amazing Grace hits high notes at Birkdale,” July 23, http://bit.ly/2uOCf4V).

He is getting a lot of hype about the lowest round ever in a major. Was it the lowest round or the lowest score in relation to par that is being touted?

 



2

Number of national golf championships older than the RBC Canadian Open, which will be held this week at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario. Only the British Open, which dates to 1860, and the U.S. Open, which debuted in 1895, are older than Canada’s national championship, which began in 1904. 

 



FROM THE INDUSTRY

Fourteen Golf saluted the runners-up at the recent British Open and Barbasol Championship for their efforts while playing some of the company’s clubs. The British Open runner-up used Fourteen’s Type 7 utility iron, and the Barbasol runner-up played four of the company’s RM-22 Raw wedges.

 

Valley of the Eagles Golf Club in Elyria, Ohio, will open for preview rounds beginning Aug. 5, the club announced. The daily-fee course, set on the site of the former Spring Valley Country Club, has been redesigned by Nicklaus Design and is managed by Troon.
