LPGA Seniors

In a few days, the LPGA is holding an event at Pete Dye’s French Lick. It started in 2017 as a solitary major on the Legends Tour before being joined by the U.S. Senior Women’s Open.

Suzanne Pettersen

Suzanne Pettersen Retires at High Point I can’t put my finger on what it is about the Solheim Cup. There is an uplifting feeling that I get watching it, one I don’t even feel at the Masters. It’s not just because it’s a continental battle, but the way in which it is waged. Talk about …
