Leading Edge Golf Weekly Roundup – 5/13

(Click here for the full, media-rich version of this newsletter on leadingedgegolf.ca)

It’s warming up here in Calgary and the trees are leafing out as it starts to feel like summer.  Unfortunately, the feeling of summer lately has also included the burning sensation of wildfire smoke in our nostrils as it did for a bit this weekend.  Here’s hoping things don’t get too bad this year.

Nelly’s reign of terror has come to a close on the LPGA Tour as phenom Rose Zhang ended the winning streak at 5.  Nelly ran out of gas on the weekend and finished way back of Zhang and Madelene Sagstrom who dueled for the win.  Zhang birdied the final four holes to make up a three shot deficit and take home the Cognizant Founders Cup.

It was a two horse race on the PGA Tour this weekend as well.  Rory and Xander Schauffele broke away from the field on Saturday and Rory broke away from Xander on Sunday to win again at Quail Hollow.  Rory looks in form as he heads to the PGA Championship at Valhalla next week, site of his last major victory in 2014.

Everyone loves an NSFW golf fight.  Enjoy this older gentleman knocking some sense into some young whippersnappers.

The fiery Alejandro Tosti was playing the alternate field event this week in Myrtle Beach and didn’t like a ruling he received.  Since it’s 2024 he naturally took a video and complained on social media *during his round*.  This guy is a content machine.
