English Empire: The English Professional Golfers Dominate Each Tour

What a weekend for the English! The men made a comeback for Europe by dominating the leaderboard and stars like Charley Hull took home a win.

Last week the LPGA took a break, and the LET Tour received all the attention for the ladies tours. On the men’s side, the CJ Cup tournament was a battle between Rory McIlroy and the top American players. McIlory dominated in the end defeating the Americans on their own turf. The participation of the English golfers was a stellar performance all around. They either brought back a shiny trophy or landed on the top leaderboards.

For the second time in a row, the PGA Tour made a guest appearance in the gambling metropolis on the American desert state of Nevada. The Summit Club in Las Vegas was once again the scene of deep shooting this weekend – with the better end for Irishman Rory McIlroy, who celebrated his 20th title on the tour. At the end of the CJ Cup, McIlroy played a round of 66 to keep the onrushing Collin Morikawa at bay.

European Tour: Andalucía Masters

The Real Club Valderrama hosted the Andalucia Masters for the seventh time on the European Tour and once again proved to be a tough opponent for the professionals – only 14 players remained under par after 72 holes.

Matthew Fitzpatrick showed the best performance over four days in Sotogrande, Spain, who brought his skills on the course in an impressively calm manner, exploited the mistakes of the competition and finally bagged his seventh title on the tour. With the 69 Fitzpatrick came into the clubhouse for the third time under par and won by three strokes. “I’m happy to win here,” beamed the winner on the 18th green. “To stay bogey-free is of course something very special. It was great,” summed up Fitzpatrick, who had remained “patient” over 72 holes. James Morrison also gave a grand performance landing him at T4 and scores of 72-73-69-68. Behind him on the leaderboard although not too far down was Englishman Robert Rock who came in at T6. Although Spain was hot with English golfer’s these guys deserve the honorable mentions.
