I guess the correct word is parity. Much like is claimed in other sports. parity is certainly true on the PGA Tour. We have yet another first time PGA Tour winner in Hideki Matsuyama. He bested Kevin Na on the first playoff hole to win the Memorial Tournament. Both played the extra hole in less than stellar fashion. Matsuyama even had to tee off with his 3 wood as he broke the shaft on his driver by slamming it into the ground on the 18th hole. Na had posted the best round of the day (a 64) and had to sit and wait for some time to see if he needed to hang around. It looked like he was not sufficiently warmed up in time for the playoff hole as he yanked his tee shot into the water. It is safe to say that the golf played by the last few groups on the back 9 at Jack’s Place saw a lot of weird shots even from some of the best (Bubba and Adam to name a couple).
On the LPGA Tour, the ShopRite Classic was won easily by Stacy Lewis. With the win, she regained the #1 ranking. It was also great to see the charismatic Christina Kim back in contention. She has had a rough go of it over the last few years. Hopefully, this is a sign of better times ahead for her.
Back to parity — when groups get together, it is key for a players to play the “right” tee boxes for their game. This makes the round much more enjoyable and can bring parity to the scores for each player. This is even more important when you are selecting the courses to include in your Myrtle Beach Golf Package.
