Next year's Vic Open will no longer include the Ladies European TourLET Dealt Huge Blow As Vic Open Partners With LPGA Tour
The Vic Open has been heralded for breaking ground within the game for including both men and women in its annual tournament.
The Aussie event has been on the Ladies European Tour schedule in recent years as well as the men’s PGA Tour of Australia, and next year’s tournament will include the men’s European Tour for the first time.
However, the tournament was also set to feature the Ladies European Tour once again, but will now host the LPGA Tour instead.
It’s a huge blow to the LET which is currently struggling for events, sponsorship and prize money, and the whopping 3m Australian Dollar prize fund ($1.5m each for men and women) was a huge boost.
The news comes less than three months prior to the event starting on 7th February.
The tournament, formerly won by 2018 Women’s British Open champion Georgia Hall, will still feature the men’s European Tour as well as the ALPG Tour and PGA Tour of Australia.
There has been some criticism from the decision, including from three-time LET winner Beth Allen.
Allen wrote on Twitter, “Really sad to hear that @GolfAust has decided not to include the @LETgolf for the 2019 @VicOpenGolf.
“Myself & many other members of the LET have supported the event from the start. To be excluded the year that the event has reached over 1 million AUD is so disappointing.”

Really sad to hear that @GolfAust has decided not to include the @LETgolf for the 2019 @VicOpenGolf. Myself & many other members of the LET have supported the event from the start. To be excluded the year that the event has reached over 1 million AUD is so disappointing. pic.twitter.com/DkTFBYxynB
— Beth Allen (@BethAllenGolf) November 20, 2018
The LET 2018 schedule featured 22 tournaments including four Tour Schools, the GolfSixes and US Women’s Open qualifier.
The 1.5m Australian Dollar Vic Open would have been equal to the Ladies Scottish Open fund and larger than every other event barring the majors.
It’s obviously a huge blow for the LET and even more so due to the fact that 2019 is a Solheim Cup year.
Mel Reid, who recently gained her 2019 LPGA Tour card, made comments earlier this year about fellow golfers on the LET who had to get part time jobs due to the lack of opportunities in Europe.
“A lot of my friends, who have been on Tour for 12 years, have had to get part-time jobs. Golf is supposed to be the second highest paid women’s sport,” she told the BBC’s ‘The Cut’ Podcast.
She continued, “they are elite athletes but if they are having to work part-time jobs how are they meant to put in the hours to get the best out of their abilities? It’s just not right.”
Reid told the BBC that the LET “needs help” and that it was “heartbreaking” to see the lack of tournaments on the schedule.

This week sees the Andalucia Costa del Sol Open de Espana, the final event of the season barring the two following Tour Schools, which has a prize pool of €300,000.
To put that into context, last week’s LPGA Tour season finale saw winner Lexi Thompson pick up a cheque of $500,000.
Also last week, the LPGA Tour announced a huge financial increase to the season finale CME Tour Championship where the winner will earn $1.5m, a winner’s cheque larger than 33 of the 47 men’s PGA Tour events.
This week’s men’s European Tour event, the Hong Kong Open, sees a prize pool of $2,000,000, a relatively small one compared to other events.

Golfers enjoy nothing more than a healthy debate in the clubhouse before and after their rounds, here are some of the most popular arguments...15 Things That Golfers Don’t Agree On
Golfers enjoy nothing more than a healthy debate in the clubhouse before and after their rounds.
Here are some of the most popular arguments heard in the clubhouses around the UK…Handicaps
Every golfing group has that player who could be perceived as a bandit, but they have an official handicap so how can you argue? They play well in the roll up and take the money most of the time but can’t hit a barn door with a banjo in the Monthy Medal! Also, how many times should golfers play to their handicap? Should you play to your handicap in every round? Or once a month? Once a year?
Related: How often should you play to your handicap?Tiger Woods
The 14-time major winner divides opinion amongst golfers. He has had his personal life controversies but Tiger fans can put that to one side and focus on his on-course achievements, whilst some can’t. Some believe he gets far too much TV time whilst some will happily sit down for five hours watching his every move.The matchplay 90% shot allowance
Previously 3/4s, it was changed to 9/10 meaning a 5 handicapper would be giving a 15 handicapper nine strokes in a match (9.0 difference with 9/10s), as oppose to eight with the previous rule (7.5 difference with 3/4s). This is something lower handicappers aren’t happy about whilst the higher handicappers won’t see a problem.
Related: Golf’s handicap allowances in matchplay explainedRakes in or out
Or even half in, half out? It’s a question that has no real answer. Ask a greenkeeper from one club and they’ll tell you what’s best but ask one from a different club and they might tell you something completely different. If they’re outside the sand you’ve got a chance of hitting it or your ball resting up against it but it’s the same story when they’re inside the bunker too, plus the handles will be sandy!
Related: Golf’s great debate: Rakes in or out?Tiger or Jack
These two are certainly the greatest golfers of the past 50 or so years whilst they also have very strong arguments to be known as the greatest of all time. Tiger has more PGA Tour titles and more records, but Jack has more majors.Dress codes
Not much divides golfers’ opinions more than dress codes. Collared shirts? Jeans in the clubhouse? Sock length and colour! Golf’s dress code is contentious and different at all different clubs around the world. Some see it as an exclusive, ‘stuffy’ part of our game that puts newcomers off whilst others say that it is a tradition of golf that needs to stay.Pace of play
Should you get round in 3 hours as a four ball? Or is 4 and a half hours suitable? Some golfers like to race round to get back to their families and other arrangements whilst others enjoy the relaxing nature of the game.
Related: 11 ways to improve golf’s pace of playLinks or inland
Links courses are widely regarded as better if you look at the Golf Monthly Top 100 rankings and are what golf courses were originally, but there are many who’ll tell you a day in the heather and pines at Sunningdale can’t be beaten. Links or inland – which do you prefer?Gimmes
Putter length? Putter grip length? 6 inches? Generous on the front nine then nothing on the back? Everybody has a different view on gimmes.Ball in divot
You’ve hit your drive straight down the middle of the fairway and guess what, it’s only ended up in a bloody divot! That’s not fair is it? Well, according to the rules of golf it is fair because the game’s principles are that you play your ball from where it lies…Price of golf
A lot of players will feel that golf club membership or green fee rates offer pretty decent value for money, especially when you look at how much a top bicycle costs or a new fishing boat. Golf can be affordable across the country whilst some areas are more expensive than others. Another dividing financial element of the game is the price of equipment. ‘Back in my day a driver only used to cost £200!’ say some, however in the present day material, research, design and other aspects have pushed the prices up – is it worth it? Golfers can decide.

Lefty believes that Woods is the greatest golfer of all time and described his 2000 US Open win as the single-greatest performance in historyMickelson: ‘Woods Is The Greatest Of All Time’
There are many debates over which golfer is the greatest of all time: Jack Nicklaus? Ben Hogan? Tiger Woods? Walter Hagen?
However, Phil Mickelson, who himself is without doubt one of the game’s greatest players of all time, believes that Woods is the undisputed GOAT.
Speaking at ‘The Match’ press conference, where he and Woods will battle it out for $9m at Shadow Creek on Friday, Mickelson was asked what Woods’ legacy will be.
Mickelson responded quite simply that Tiger is the greatest of all time.
“Greatest of all time,” Lefty said.
“That’s an easy one for me. I’ve seen him do things with a golf ball that’s never been done; the performance at the 2000 U.S. Open at Pebble Beach is the single-greatest performance in the history of the game of golf, and possibly all of sports, and he continued to play that way for a number of years.”WATCH: Woods vs Mickelson The Match Press Conference
Woods won the 2000 US Open at Pebble Beach by 15 strokes which is the largest winning margin in major history. It was his 1st US Open title and third major.
He has since gone on to win 14 majors in total, only second to Jack Nicklaus with 18.

Solheim Cup record points scorer Laura Davies will be a vice captain at Gleneagles next yearLaura Davies Announced As Solheim Cup Vice Captain
Dame Laura Davies has been announced as Catriona Matthew’s third vice captain for next year’s Solheim Cup at Gleneagles.
Davies is the event’s leading points scorer with 25 and has also made more appearances than any other player with 12.
The Englishwoman joins Suzann Pettersen and Kathryn Imri as vice captains.
The trio have made 21 Solheim Cup apparances in total between 1990 and 2015, winning 45.5 points.
Matthew described selecting Davies as a “no brainer.”
“She played in the first 12, won 87 times, has a wealth of experience, is still playing, knows all the players, will be great fun in the team room… I mean, it was really a no brainer!” said the Scot.

“I’m delighted to have Laura alongside me on the journey to Gleneagles.
“She is hugely respected by the players and has a great sense of humour, which will bring a bit of levity.
“Her experience speaks for itself: she has played in 12 Solheim Cups, on both winning teams and losing teams, she has won 87 titles around the world and has been the lynchpin of the Ladies European Tour for the last 30 years.
“The players that will be in the team have such respect for her that if any of them need a question answered, they will listen to Laura.”
Matthew was initially unsure whether Davies would accept the vice captaincy role, as the four-time Major winner has in the past said that she never wants to be Solheim Cup captain, but she could not have been keener.
Davies said: “I’m delighted and honoured to have been asked to be a vice captain for the first time by Catriona.
“She sent me a text message when I was doing commentary at The Ryder Cup and I thought, ‘Ah, I wonder what this will be about.’
“Sure enough, she asked me if I would do it and I didn’t even have to think about it. I want to be part of the team and I hope that I can make a positive contribution and help in any way that I can.
“The Solheim Cup has always held a very special place in my heart, right from the first one in 1990. Many of my fondest memories have been made during The Solheim Cup and I’m hoping that this one, at Gleneagles, will be the best yet.
“Hopefully, we’ll have a really strong team, because we have some great players now. We want the American and European fans to come out in numbers, the weather to be perfect and it to be a real celebration of women’s golf. I can’t wait to get started and am looking forward to the challenge.”
Davies has won 45 Ladies European Tour titles and 20 LPGA titles.
She recently completed a clean sweep of majors on the Legends Tour, with her win at the inaugural US Senior Women’s Open and the Senior LPGA Championship.
In addition to her tournament victories, Davies has won a record seven Ladies European Tour Order of Merit titles.
She was the first non-American to finish at the top of the LPGA money list and is a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame.
Davies has featured in four victorious Solheim Cup teams, in 1992, 2000, 2003 and 2011, winning 25 points from her 46 matches from 1990-2011.
At The 2019 Solheim Cup, the 16th staging of the contest, Europe will look to regain the trophy for the first time in six years, following the last win in Colorado.
The USA has won the last two matches in Germany and Iowa.

Take a look at our top eight courses in Northamptonshire. A view of the approach to the 18th hole at WellingboroughThe Best Golf Courses In Northamptonshire
Right in the heart of England, Northamptonshire borders eight counties and forms a part of the Midlands. There are plenty of courses throughout and many are based around the county town of Northampton. Below we have taken a look at some of the best.
Related: Golf Monthly’s UK&I Top 100 CoursesWellingborough
Wellingborough moved to its new home at Harrowden Hall in 1975, adopting the stately home of Lord Vaux as its clubhouse and laying out an 18-hole course which can stretch to 6,711 yards on adjacent land –more than enough for most, even in these 7,000 yard times.
The holes are often reasonably generous, and though there are trees that can stymie your progress, the scope to lose a ball within the course’s boundaries is fairly limited. In places, newly planted saplings will tighten things up for future generations, most notably on the 5th. But overall, the freedom to swing is welcome, as length alone is enough of a test, especially on a back nine measuring 3,501 yards, even with two short par-4s. One of these is the 18th, a risk-reward hole demanding a fair degree of accuracy even when playing safe. Position is everything.Northamptonshire County
Whilst much of Harry Colt’s heathery handiwork is close to London, there are plenty of fine examples in slightly more rural locations such as the lovely village of Church Brampton in Northamptonshire. The club would probably be more widely-known were it not a little off the beaten track, and it celebrated its centenary in 2009 having previously undergone an upgrade under the guidance of Cameron Sinclair.
With only one starting point, a stretch of three new holes was opened in 2004 which offers a route back to the clubhouse for those wishing to play just nine, and the club also has an entertaining 6-hole Par 3 course which is named after the original great architect. On the main course, heather and gorse combine with mature trees and some gentle undulations to provide a varied and greatly enjoyable test which include five holes on the other side of a railway line.
Despite its quiet location, the club is only a few minutes from the M1 and more than worth seeking out.Collingtree Park
Designed by former British and US Open champion Johnny Miller, the course at Collingtree Park was opened for play in 1990. It’s a fantastic parkland layout where water plays a major part. The 18th is a classic par-5 finishing hole. Stretching to over 600 yards from the back pegs, water guards the entire left side demanding accuracy on drive, lay-up and approach.

Northampton
Northampton Golf Club was founded back in 1893 but the course with its current layout first opened in 1990 and was designed by Donald Steel. Over the past 20 years it has only undergone slight changes thanks to its toughness and picturesque setting.
There are plenty of scenic holes to enjoy but the signature two are the 2nd and 16th. Both par-3s, they require a well-struck iron shot over water and you should avoid the bunkers on the left-hand side of both greens too.
The 16th is in fact the first of a tough stretch of holes at the end of the round. 17 may only be 280 yards but accuracy is key and we recommend keeping the driver in the bag! Then 18 is a nerve-jangler as you’re tee shot goes over the water into a fairly narrow fairway.Brampton Heath
One of the best pay and play facilities in the county, Brampton Heath first opened in 1995 after two years of construction. An undulating heathland track, many of the holes appear open and wide, but trouble lurks everywhere.
Take the first for example. The fairway from the tee appears wide and welcoming however out of bounds comes into play all the way down the left and the two fairway bunkers see a lot of action too.
Additionally many of the holes require you to try and play a draw or a fade with successful attempts given better shots into greens and a better chance to score. Whereas failure to do so will probably leave you blocked out a lot of the time.Kingsthorpe
Kingsthorpe Golf Club on the outskirts of Northampton is a real gem and an example of imaginative course design on a miniscule plot. Despite this course’s small stature, being built on just 73 acres of land, this par 69 is as fun as it is tricky, with blind tee shots and carries over a ravine guaranteed to leave a big impression.
The fifth hole in particular is a beauty. Measuring 442 yards off the tips, you drive down into a valley which, if you find the fairway, is sure to carry your ball to the bottom of the hill. From there, you play back up the severe hill which adds one or two extra clubs to the distance to the pin. A tough but lovely hole.Overstone Park
There are some good holes here, among them the 600+ yard 11th sweeping down towards those lodges, and the signature hole, the par-3 17th across a lake. But it was eclipsed by the 4th. It may have been 50 yards shorter than the 17th, but with a green boasting the characteristics of an upturned saucer, and only one real bail-out option (short right), it seemed much the harder hole from the tee.Staverton Park
Opened for play in 1977, Staverton Park to the south of Daventry was designed by Commander John Harris. Protected by sprawling bunkers, mature trees and four lakes, it’s a layout that sits comfortably in the rolling Northamptonshire countryside. There are extensive practice facilities on site and a team of teaching professionals headed by Richard Mudge are on hand to iron out any kinks in your game either pre or post round.

The American won in his first week using Titleist clubsCharles Howell III What’s In The Bag?
Charles Howell III ended an 11 year wait for a victory on the PGA Tour at the RSM Classic.
Howell III beat Patrick Rodgers on the second hole in a playoff to win his 3rd PGA Tour title.
The American is considered one of the game’s most consistent players and has won over $37m on the PGA Tour in his career despite just those three wins in his 18 year pro career.
The 39-year-old has been a PXG brand ambassador for a couple of years now but this victory was his first since switching to Titleist.
Howell’s previous start was at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia where he was using PXG (plus a Titleist fairway wood) but he has now gone for a full bag of Titleists barring his putter.
Howell III had a Titleist TS2 fairway wood in the bag during the CIMB Classic last month. (Photo by Stanley Chou/Getty Images)
As well as the clubs, he also had the new 2019 Pro V1 in the bag, we’re sure to hear more on that over the coming weeks and months.
His driver is Titleist’s new TS3 and he has two Titleist TS2 fairway woods, a 3 wood at 15° and a 7 wood at 21°.
He uses the Titleist TS3 driver. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
His irons are a mixed set with a T-MB 4 iron, AP2 from 5-7 and CB from 8-PW.
They’re all Titleist’s newest 718 models.

The standout part of his game would probably be his iron play. For the 2019 PGA Tour season, Howell III has hit over 82% of Greens in Regulation and is currently 4th in that category.
His wedges are the Vokey SM7s in 52°, 56° and 60°.

Take a look at our picks for the Best Golf Courses in Oxfordshire below. The 8th at The Oxfordshire (Getty Images) The Best Golf Courses In Oxfordshire
Not the largest English county, there are a vast selection of golf courses just a stones-throw away from the picturesque city of Oxford. For those looking for more of a traditional golf track, Huntercombe and its heather is a delight, whereas the new layout of the Oxfordshire offers some visually stunning holes for you to enjoy. Alternatively, Frilford Heath gives you three different tests in the form of their Red, Green and Blue courses.
Oxfordshire offers something for everyone so as a result we have taken a look at some of the best the county has to offer below.
Related: Golf Monthly’s UK&I Top 100 CoursesHuntercombe
One of golf course architecture’s founding fathers was Willie Park Jnr, whose first design was the magnificent Old course at Sunningdale. He actually owned the course here, which allowed him to extend his creativity to the full. It remains a real one-off and a beautiful place to play. Unusually there are just 13 sand bunkers, but there are many grassy hollows that can be just as challenging. Careful strategic thinking is required to navigate round to the testing greens.Frilford Heath (Red, Green, Blue) 
Red
Located to the South of Oxford, Frilford Heath Golf Club started life in 1908 when JH Taylor designed the Red Course but over time the 500 acres of heathland has been added to on more than one occasion. There are three courses there now, the Red, Green and Blue, along with a short version called the Yellow. We start by looking at the Red.
A tough test from the Black Tees, the Red provides a traditional heathland experience that demands accuracy. The 8th is one of the best front nine holes, a long, testing par 4 with an imposing tree 120 yards from the tee.
The back-to-back 13th and 14th are then among the back nine highlights, the former a dogleg with a tricky narrow-fronted green and the latter boasting picturesque pines to the rear. Following the blindish tee-shot on 17, the 18th is a risk-reward hole that might goad you into attacking it downwind, though the adjacent car park isn’t beyond the realms of possibility with an over-zealous pull.Green
The Green started life as a nine-holer in the 1920s. Holes five to 13 formed the original layout, which was so highly regarded that Bernard Darwin hailed it one of the two best nine-holers in the land along with Royal Worlington. This lovely little course scarcely scrapes over 6,000 yards off the tips, but length is almost irrelevant as its more of a though-provoking test than its older and younger brothers, with some splendid arboreal specimens especially on that original nine. And for all its seeming shortness, don’t be lulled into a false sense of security prematurely – from the 14th, it hits back hard with three 400+ yard par4s and a 195 yarder that looks longer on the tee. A closing 290-yarder may seem a parting gift, but with OOB awaiting any blocked aggression, caution should still be exercised.Blue
The Blue, which arrived in 1994, is different again with elements of both parkland and heathland, a good sprinkling of water hazards early on and a links feel in places, nowhere more so than on the long 17th where the drive must be threaded with precision between four well-placed bunkers. Two par 3s stand out heading out – the 3rd where water is an ever-present danger, and the pretty 6th where pines and gorse provide a stirring backdrop, as they do later on the nearby 12th, a short, sharp dogleg right.Oxfordshire
A view of the 18th at The Oxfordshire (Getty Images)
An excellent and varied test, set-up well for the average golfer without too much punishing rough – very wise given that the water skirting many fairways and greens, and the stiff breezes that often sweep across the course, are ample challenge for most. Among the waterside highlights are the par-3 13th, where discretion may be the better part of valour if the pin is back left, and the famous par-5 17th where there are two fairways playing either around or across a lake. For most playing around will be the shrewdest, maybe only, option.

Tadmarton Heath
Perched 650ft above seal level, Tadmarton Heath is a very pleasant and peaceful spot for a round, blessed with a clubhouse that from certain angles looks for all the world like a large, country cottage, which is entirely in keeping with the overall feel.
The holes interweave intricately, which must allow members to play an almost infinite number of shorter loops if they haven’t got time for a full 18 and club rules permit! There’s a scary sleeper-faced bunker short right of the 6th which must gather a lot of balls and certainly wont tolerate anything less than full committed bunker play, while the signature 7th that follows is a glorious short par 3 across a gully to a well protected green.
The 10th is then a classic example of the kind of hole we just don’t have enough of these days. Its scarcely over 100 yards, but surrounding bunkers and tricky contours on the green make you think par would be most welcome even if armed with a wedge – golfs forgotten art.Oxford Golf Club
One of the oldest clubs in the country, the current course has had James Braid and Harry Colt influence in its design. After a couple of fairly straight-forward par-4s, the 3rd is the first real test of your golf game. A challenging par-4, you play down into a valley and then the fairway splits thanks to a ditch. However just finding the fairway isn’t enough, you simply must aim for the right-hand side of the short grass because it will give you a better chance of hitting into the green which is uphill and around to the left. Take a par and move on here.
Indeed, accuracy off the tee is very important throughout the round, so if you drive the ball well there are plenty of good scoring chances.Heythrop Park
The 11th at Heythrop Park (Getty Images)
Heythrop Parl, set in the beautiful rolling countryside of Oxfordshire outside the market town of Chipping Norton, is a classic parkland layout that is both testing and quirky in equal measure. Designed by Tom McKenzie, the course only opened for play in 2009 but that doesn’t mean it will not test your golf game.
Water comes into play on no fewer than eight holes, with the pick being the short par-4 16th. With little over 300 yards separating tee from the putting surface, players could be forgiven for underestimating this gem from the scorecard. But accuracy from an elevated tee is paramount as water runs in front and then parallel to the fairway.

DP World Tour Champion Danny Willett uses a full bag of Callaway clubsDanny Willett What’s In The Bag?
At the DP World Tour Championship, Danny Willett won his first title since the 2016 Masters.
The Englishman finished at 18 under par to win by two strokes from Matt Wallace and Patrick Reed.

Like many players these days, he has just one fairway wood and carries a utility iron instead of a 5 wood.
His utility is the Callaway X Forged UT and he has three of them, in 18, 21 and 24 degrees of lofts – these are essentially his 2, 3 and 4 irons.

Thorbjorn Olesen and Soren Kjeldsen team up this week as they defend the ISPS Handa Melbourne World Cup of Golf for Denmark.Soren Kjeldsen and Thorbjorn Olesen defend the World Cup of Golf for DenmarkISPS Handa Melbourne World Cup of Golf Leaderboard, Preview, TV Times
28 countries will be represented at the 2018 World Cup of Golf as 56 players tee it up at The Metropolitan Golf Club, Melbourne, Australia. Denmark defends and a strong field has assembled.
The World Cup of Golf will feature 28 two-man teams competing over 72 holes of strokeplay in a mixed format event. The first and third rounds will be fourball and the second and fourth rounds will be foursomes.
This tournament was founded by Canadian industrialist John Jay Hopkins. It began life in 1953 as the Canada Cup but its name changed to the World Cup in 1967.
Over the years there have been some superb winning teams: In 1956 Ben Hogan and Sam Snead took the title, Jack Nicklaus together with Arnold Palmer were victorious four times in the 1960s, Fred Couples and Davis Love III won the event four times consecutively from 1992 to 1995 and Tiger Woods won in back to back years around the Millennium with Mark O’Meara then David Duval. The USA is the most successful nation in the event’s history with 24 wins in total.
The last time the tournament was contested Denmark were winners. Thorbjorn Olesen and Soren Kjeldsen finished four clear of French duo Victor Dubuisson and Romain Langasque.
England is being represented this week by Ian Poulter and Tyrrell Hatton, Scotland’s pairing is Russell Knox and Martin Laird, Wales have Bradley Dredge and Stuart Manley and team Ireland is Shane Lowry and Paul Dunne.
The weather forecast is a little mixed. It might well rain on the first couple of days before clearing for the weekend.Venue: The Metropolitan Golf Club, Melbourne, AustraliaDate: Nov 22-25Course stats: par 72, 7,308 yardsPurse: $7,000,000Defending champions: Denmark (-20)How to watch the ISPS Handa Melbourne World Cup of GolfTV Coverage:

Teams to watch:
Ashun Wu and Haotong Li of China
Belgium – The pairing of Thomas Pieters and Thomas Detry looks super strong. Pieters is coming back into form and Detry has been playing some good stuff recently. If they get it going, they could shoot some low numbers.
Australia – The home pairing of Marc Leishman and Cam Smith will be well supported. They should have a good chance.
China – Haotong Li and Ashun Wu… Just two very good players, both of whom have been on good form.Key hole: 18th. It’s a 475 yard par-4 that plays into the prevailing wind. It’s dead straight but with bunkers protecting the right side, a leaked tee shot could find the hazard. A pin on the left of the green adds to the difficult as the temptation from the tee will be to get as close to those bunkers as possible.

Just four days after the 2018 European Tour season concluded, the 2019 schedule begins on Thursday. Wade Ormsby defends the Hong Kong Open in Fanling.Wade Ormsby defends Hong Kong OpenHonma Hong Kong Open Leaderboard, Preview, TV Times
A strong field has assembled for the first event of the 2019 European Tour season. Tommy Fleetwood will peg it up in the Honma Hong Kong Open, together with Sergio Garcia, Patrick Reed and Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
Four-time winner Miguel Angel Jimenez will be back in action in Hong Kong as will England’s Eddie Pepperell. In 2017, Jimenez closed out with a tournament record-equalling 63 and he believes a fifth victory could be possible.
“I am looking forward to returning to Hong Kong Golf Club for this year’s tournament,” he said. “It’s a golf course that I have enjoyed a lot of success on over the years and one that tests your game in a unique way. The tournament and the golf club have a wonderful heritage and the fact that it’s all in Hong Kong makes it very special. I look forward to getting back out on course.”
It’s a first chance for the 2018 Challenge Tour graduates to get a taste of 2019 European tour action and 11 of them will peg it up, including Jack Singh Brar of England and Scots Grant Forrest, Liam Johnston, Robert Macintyre and David Law.
This will be the 60th edition of the Hong Kong Open and it’s been part of the European Tour schedule since 2002.
Since the tournament was first contested in 1959 there have been a number of notable winners including Peter Thomson, Greg Norman, Tom Watson and, more recently, Colin Montgomerie, Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Miguel Angel Jimenez. As mentioned above, the Spaniard has won the event on four occasions.
Last year, Australia’s Wade Ormsby held on to win by one from a group of four players: Julian Suri and Paul Peterson of the USA, Alexander Bjork of Sweden and Spain’s Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
Hong Kong GC
The Hong Kong Golf Club was founded in 1889. The club has been host to this tournament since 1959 – one of the few professional events to have remained at the same venue for such a long period of time.
The weather forecast is reasonable, although it could be breezy, until the Sunday when rain could be a factor.Venue: Hong Kong GC, Fanling, Hong KongDate: Nov 22-25Course stats: par 70, 6,703 yardsPurse: $2,000,000Defending champion: Wade Ormsby (-11)How to watch the Honma Hong Kong OpenTV Coverage:

Players to watch:
Sergio Garcia
Sergio Garcia – The Spaniard is in great form right now with three top-10s in his last three starts, including a win. He finished in the top-20 in this event last year.
Rafa Cabrera-Bello – He was joint second in this event last year and has been on solid form of late. He hasn’t missed a cut on the European Tour since July.
Lucas Bjerregaard – The Dane had a great 2018 season and will be looking to get his 2019 campaign off to a flying start.Key hole: 18th. At 410 yards, it might not look overly imposing on the card but, with water, trees, heavy bunkering plus a famously elusive green, par here is an excellent score.Skills required: Course management. This is a layout that demands accuracy and a strategic approach. It’s an old-school track where the ability to hit the long-ball is not a prerequisite. It’s a course that requires good shot-making and a tidy short game.

Charles Howell III beat Patrick Rodgers on the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win The RSM Classic at the Sea Island Resort in Georgia.Charles Howell III wins The RSM ClassicCharles Howell III wins The RSM Classic
Charles Howell III holed a 15-foot birdie putt on the 18th at the Sea Island Resort to beat Patrick Rodgers in a playoff for The RSM Classic.

Playoff.
Highlights from Sunday @TheRSMClassic: pic.twitter.com/BU8kOLGzjN
— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) November 19, 2018
Rodgers only just made the cut at the Sea Island Resort. He opened with a pair of 70s and was 12 shots back of Howell at that stage. But he came to life on the weekend and posted closing rounds of 61 and 62 to reach 19-under-par for the tournament.
Howell came to the last hole of regulation play tied at the top of the board with Rodgers. He gave himself a chance to win the event outright, but his putt narrowly missed the cup.
On the first extra hole, both Howell and Rodgers had birdie chances that wouldn’t drop and on the second extra hole, Rodgers missed his try from 20-feet before Howell sent his putt home to claim his first win since 2007.
With the victory, Howell earned $1,152,000 and a start in The Masters in his home town of Augusta – It will be the first time he has played in the year’s first Major since 2012.
“That was the first thing that popped into my head (after making the clinching putt),” Howell said. “Obviously, it means a lot to me being from Augusta but it means a lot to every player, right? Every golfer in the world knows what the Masters is so I’m nothing special on that. But that tournament, that atmosphere, just everything … it’s tough at home to sit back and watch that on television.”
Rodgers was 17-under-par for the weekend. Taking just 123 shots on Saturday and Sunday, he was just a shot off Troy Matteson’s PGA Tour record of 122 for consecutive rounds.
“I fought as hard as I could,” said Rodgers. “I didn’t really back down. I stayed aggressive and I made birdies all the way to the finish. It’s a testament to how well Charles played.”Webb Simpson had a 12-foot birdie opportunity at the final hole to join the playoff, but just missed. Luke List and Bryan Blaum tied for fourth at 17-under.
Tour rookie Cameron Champ was in a four-way tie for first with Howell, Rodgers and Simpson with seven holes to play. But he fell back, shot 69 and finished alone in sixth at 16 under.

England’s Danny Willett returned to winning ways with victory in the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai as Francesco Molinari was crowned Race to Dubai champion.Danny Willett wins DP World Tour ChampionshipDanny Willett wins DP World Tour ChampionshipDanny Willett carded a closing 68 to finish on 18-under-par and win the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai by two strokes from Matt Wallace and Patrick Reed. It was Willett’s first win since the 2016 Masters.

— The European Tour (@EuropeanTour) November 18, 2018
In a closely fought final round, Willett edged in front with three birdies in his last five holes. The decisive blow came at the par-3 17th where Willett fired in a brilliant tee shot to within six feet of the cup. Patrick Reed was unable to get up-and-down on the same hole before Willett rolled his birdie putt home to take a three-shot lead to the final hole.
There was a brief scare for the Englishman when his tee shot on the last nearly found the water, but it stopped just short and, despite being in the hazard, he was able to advance his ball, get onto the par-5 in three shots and secure the victory.
Danny Willett
“It’s been a lot of hard work,” said an emotional Willett. “It’s been tough. I’m just massively proud of myself and everyone that’s been around me. You never quite know when a win is around the corner and with all the things that have happened, I was never quite sure if it was going to happen again. To happen here at the end of year, we’ve battled long and hard through this season to come out at the end, regardless of what happened today, a better person and a better athlete. It’s a special place.”
Francesco Molinari finished on six-under-par for the week and, with defending Race to Dubai champion Tommy Fleetwood failing to get the victory this week, the Italian was crowned Race to Dubai champion.
“It’s incredible, it’s more than I ever dreamed of achieving,” he said. “I think I’ve seen players who are better than me not winning Majors or the Order of Merit so for me to do it, just seems unreal. Now I have some time to relax and recover but to be honest I don’t know how to tackle next season, it’s going to be impossible to repeat this year.”
Patrick Reed birdied the final hole to climb into a tie for second place with Matt Wallace and that was enough for the American to go ahead of Tommy Fleetwood and finish second in the Race to Dubai standings.
Matt Wallace climbed into 10th place on the standings with his tied second finish in Dubai. That earned him the last bonus pool spot.
Despite a disappointing final round of 80, India’s Shubhankar Sharma was crowned Rookie of the Year for 2018.
“It’s been a great year and I feel very lucky,” he said. “I still have a lot to learn though and next year I just have to keep building on what I have achieved.
