Of course the story going into the Open Championship is Rory McIlroy (TaylorMade TP5x).
It’s just halfway past the 2023 season on the PGA Tour and, to borrow a line from the movie Gladiator, “Are you not entertained?”
Now that the LPGA has a new bonafide superstar in Rose Zhang (Callaway Chrome Soft X), it will be interesting how she is marketed and the impact on advertisers TV network, the general public and, most of all, the tour.
The 2023 U.S. Open was played near Hollywood, and there was a Hollywood ending, just not one that was expected but definitely has the makings to be made into a movie.
This is the first time the Los Angeles Country Club has played host to the U.S. Open.
Thoughts at the halfway point of the 2023 U.S. Open:
In the heart of Hollywood, a golf tournament is taking place, will anyone care?
Do you know the words to the Canadian anthem, O Canada?
The RBC Canadian Open is not one of the majors on the PGA Tour, nor is it a designated elevated event, but for the last two years it has become the tournament in which the biggest news in the history of the sport has happened; news that has shocked the very foundation of golf. Call if the golf war.
