Brooks Koepka Leads the Charge in The Open Championship

It has been about four weeks since Brooks Koepka won the US Open out right.

Now after taking a much-needed break, he is back at it again.  This time he is looking to win the 146th [British] Open.

He has surprised us again with great shots.  One, in particular, was the Eagle at the 17th Hole.  It looks like his play has gotten better and that his winning at Erin Hills was not a fluke.  He is here to play and here to win.

I think his play style fits the Open style Golf Course. Koepka likes long fairways and large greens and few hazards.  That is exactly what he got today [Thursday] during the 1st Round of the Open.  He can out make Birdies and he tends to not make too many mistakes.

He is currently tied with Jordan Spieth at [65] -5. along with Matt Kucher -5 on the Leaderboard.

Some other Golfers to watch for are Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, and Rory McIlroy. Mickelson is +3.  McIlroy +1. Watson is -2.  We have seen them make runs at first place in the past.

We will be watching How well the US Open Champ does in this weeks Tournament.  It starts Live on the Golf Channel at 1:30 am tomorrow [Friday] for Round 2.

It looks like it will be windy and rainy tomorrow during Round 2 which will undoubtedly wreak havoc on the Leader Board.

We’ll see how well the Leaders will play in those conditions.  It is widely known that the weather at the Open can be challenging, think Tom Watson just losing during the 2008 Open.  It was rainy and it was windy.  So expect some of the veterans to play better in tomorrow.

Dustin Johnson Leads After Round 1 At Dell Technologies Championship

After round 1 at the Dell Technologies Championship at TPC Boston in Norton, Dustin Johnson leads the pack.

But the leaderboard at the top is looking quite tight after round one.

First-Round Leaderboard

Dustin Johnson             66 (-5)

Kyle Stanley                 67 (-4)

Marc Leishman             67 (-4)

Sergio Garcia               67 (-4)

Jon Rahm                     67 (-4)

Four golfers are tied for second place at 4 under par sitting one shot back of Johnson’s 5 under par lead.

Johnson birdied the 10th hole at TPC Boston to get his opening round underway and converted a putt of less than five feet for eagle at No. 18 to make the turn 4-under. His inward nine of 1-under contributed to a 5-under 66.

In his eighth appearance at the Dell Technologies Championship, Johnson’s 66 marked his lowest opening round at TPC Boston. Johnson’s best result in the Dell Technologies Championship is T4 (twice, 2009, 2012). He finished T8 at TPC Boston last year.

Defending Dell Technologies Bank Championship winner Rory McIlroy birdied the par-5 final hole for a 1-over 72.

Round 2 kicks off on Saturday with the same pairings as round 1.

Dell Technologies Championship Preview

Dell Technologies Championship Preview: TV Information, Field, And More

The FedExCup returns to TPC Boston this weekend, but this time something is different.

No longer is the championship sponsored by Deutsche Bank, instead, it has been rebranded as the Dell Technologies Championship. The reigning champion of the tournament, Rory McIlroy will be present for the Labor Day weekend tournament and enters it ranked No. 43 in the FedExCup after beginning the FedExCup Playoffs at No. 44.

McIlroy had an impressive comeback at last years event after being tied for 67th overall after an opening round 71. But he posted a final round 65 as he was able to close and eclipse a 6 stroke lead Paul Casey had entering the final round in 2016. That six stroke come-from behind win happens to be the largest in the tournament’s history.

But this year looks to be different at the  Dell Technologies Championship. For starters, McIlroy won the FedExCup in 2016 and looks to be nowhere close to being able to do that this time around. The favorites heading into this weekend are the top 6 in the FedExCup standings.

  1. Dustin Johnson
  2. Jordan Spieth
  3. Justin Thomas
  4. Hideki Matsuyama
  5. John Rahm
  6. Rickie Fowler
