Golf news – lessons and tournaments for the week of August 15-21

During the 33rd week of the year, you should not miss the following events:

From August 18-21, the road to Mallorca moves to Sweden, which is hosting two events on the European calendar this year: the Dormy Open and the Indoor Golf Group Challenge.

This week, the Champions of the Challenge Tour will be in Stockholm, at Österåkers Golfklubb, PAR 72 at 6,575 metres.

The event was played in this tournament when it debuted in May 2021. Previous winner e title holder France’s Maury Felix, who picked up his first win of the Tour, will take to the field this week to defend his title.

Among the leaders of the road to Mallorca will be on the field: No. 1 in the rankings and the recent winner of the Fredrickshaven Challenge Freddy Schutt, but also English No. 5 Nathan Kimsey, as well as a large group of champions ” at home “.

At the Dormy Open 2022, we will also see nine Italian blues on the field for a prize pool of €250,000: Stefano Mazzoli, Lorenzo Scales, Matteo Manasero, Aaron Zimmer, Jacopo Vicki Fossa, Gregorio de Leo, Enrico de Neto, Federico Macario and Filippo Bergamash.

The finals in the US are approaching, but there are still many events to come on the DP World Tour. After this week’s D+D Czech Masters, there are 12 events left on the schedule, including nine with prize pools of at least three million euros.

The eighth edition of D + D Czech Masters will be held from August 18-21 in the Czech Republic at the Albatross Golf Resort, which opened in 2009 and is considered one of the best golf courses in the country. The tournament has already hosted two stages of the Women’s European Tour (2011 and 2012) but has been part of the DP World Tour calendar since 2014.

Past results indicate that the field favors “top scorers”: Thomas Peters won twice and Tapio Polkanen, one of the tallest players in the ring, finished second in the 2021 edition of the Czech Masters. Wide fairways and large green spaces allow players to take longer (albeit less subtle) to tackle the path, while mostly shallow bunkers make recreational play less demanding.

Water abounds in the path, especially in the last openings and especially on the eighteenth where he becomes the protagonist: a stream flowing to the right closes the lane, just like a lake on the left cuts in front of the green which must be equalized with overcoming the second. This hole has caused some problems in the past and provides moments of suspense for viewers (and players) at the end of the round.

this is Installations This week might not be the best of times given the Korn Ferry Tour finale, but the excitement is sure to be there. On the pitch will be American Johannes Fermann, who took his first Tour win in the 2021 edition of the event, and will be looking to defend his defending champion title.

Among the players competing for a prize of $ 1 million and $ 750 thousand, experts advise to watch: Belgian Thomas Peters, who is not only the highest-rated player on the board, but also twice won the event (in 2015 and 2019). With 14 starts this season and 4 of the top 10 finals (including a win in January in Abu Dhabi), Pieters are in good shape.

Among the candidates on the field are also the Frenchman Victor Perez, who, like Peter, won this season and was strong in the St. Andrews Open (34), and the American Sean Crocker, last season’s runner-up, the newest and youngest. The winner of the Hero Open at the end of July, whose knowledge of this path may inspire him to victory.

He will be followed by four Italians on the field: Andrea Pavan, Nino Bertasio, Renato Baratore and Lorenzo Gagli. We can cheer them up and watch the tournament from August 18-21 on GOLFTV / DISCOVERY + and EUROSPORT with comments from Isabella Calogero and Giovanni Magni on the following programmes:

After Will Xalatores won the FedEx St. Installations FedEx qualifiers reduced to 70 players for this week’s BMW Championship.
However, a first look at the roster reveals that there will be only 69 riders on the course at the Wilmington Country Club in Delaware, as Australian world number two Cameron Smith was forced to retire with a thigh problem. The move, fortunately, won’t cost him his place in the Tour Championship next week (if the reduction to just 30 players continues in the Eastlake playoffs), but it will certainly drop him in the standings.

Hosting a Grand Tour for the first time, Wilmington Country Club will host the world’s best players at its newly designed southern stadium, which combines length, bunkers and large rolling greens.

The original course was designed by Robert Trent Jones and opened in 1960 with the Northern Course opening the following year. Due to the severe damage caused by the cyclone of 2020, the field has undergone major changes.

The club had previously hired architect Andrew Green to carry out work on the property and the renovation of the south track became its primary focus. This week, the course will be 71 PAR, 6,889 meters long, and will be played in an unusual hole arrangement, with the last four holes particularly complex and scenic.

Among the players with a $15 million prize pool is Will Zatoris, who topped the standings after winning in Memphis, a spot that world number one Scottie Scheffler is looking to reclaim.

The latter had a rare weekend break last week, allowing him to regain his strength ahead of the final streak of two events. The #1 player in the world, who leads the Tour most of the season, has a game well suited to this type of course and will want to take the opportunity to put even more distance between himself and Cameron Smith in the rankings.

Rory McIlroy will be one to watch after missing the weekend at TPC Southwind, while Tony Finau remains one of the most exciting players, finishing fifth after winning back-to-back last weekend.

Matt Fitzpatrick also finished fifth at St. Jude and his start makes him an Expert favorite.
