Angela Stanford Finally Has Her Major!

Today is September 17th, 2018 and we present Angela Stanford Finally Has Her Major! Monday Rewind #106.  A Golf Video Blog with Mel Sole, Director of Instruction and Master Professional at the Mel Sole Golf Schools headquartered at Pawleys Plantation Golf and Country Club in Pawleys Island, SC.

Angela Stanford Finally Has Her Major!

We all knew it would happen eventually, but Angela Stanford Finally Has Her Major!  She played some gritty golf down the final nine holes that included an eagle on 15 followed by a double bogey on 16 and a birdie on 17 to put her in a tie with Amy Olsen playing the final hole.  Her birdie try on the 18th hole of the Evian Championship course at Evian-Les-Bains in France, just slipped by the right edge and a tap-in par left her on -12.  Amy Olsen, trying for her first LPGA victory found the pressure too much.  She hooked her drive into the rough on the left, did not clear the rough with her second and left her pitch well short of the hole.  Needing about a 30 footer for the victory she hit her putt too hard and it slipped 10 foot by.  Her attempt at getting into the playoff was weak and to the left.  Mo Martin and Sei Young Kim both had birdie tries to force a playoff.  But they both two-putted for pars and a four-way tie for second place.  Disappointing for Olsen, but a stunned Angela Stanford was handed the trophy without needing to hit another shot.  Her raw emotion during the post-round interview showed just how badly she had wanted this victory!  Congratulations!

 

European Tour:

This week the Tour was in the Netherlands for the KLM Open at the Dutch Course in Spijk. Ashun Wu of China finished ahead of leader Chris Wood and posted a score of -16.  Wood needed just birdie on the par 5 18th and hit his second on the putting surface, but quite a long way from the hole.  Making sure he did not leave the putt for victory short, he blew it 18 feet past the hole and proceeded to three-putt to hand the victory to Wu.  This was Wu’s 3rd European Tour Victory.

Japan’s Hideto Tanihara and Belgium’s Thomas Detry finished on 14-under while Europe’s Ryder Cup vice-captain Padraig Harrington had a strong showing, coming in with a score of 13-under.

PGA Tour Champions:

Paul Broadhurst was not going to play this week due to a sprained back.  But his physio did a great job in relieving the pain.  He went on to win the Ally Challenge at Warwick Hills GC in Grand Blanc, MI.  He beat Brandt Jobe by two, finishing on -15.  Two oldies in Mark O’Mera and Tom Lehman finished tied for 3rd.  These guys can still play great golf!
