Reversal Of Fortune

by Mike Cullity

Álvaro Quirós is back among the big boys.

The 34-year-old Spanish bomber resurrected his once-formidable game and regained his European Tour card with a playoff victory Sunday at the European Tour’s Rocco Forte Open in picturesque Sicily.

Ranked as high as 21st in the world in 2011, a year in which he posted two of his six previous European Tour victories, Quirós spiraled after a swing change, lost his card and ranked 703rd in the world at the start of last week. So much for a summer he’d have otherwise spent visiting far-flung Challenge Tour locales.

Across the pond in Virginia, Lexi Thompson achieved redemption for her recent rules travails with a victory at the LPGA’s Kingsmill Championship. After skydiving onto the first fairway before the Wednesday pro-am, the 22-year-old Floridian put on a clinic, posting three 65s in four rounds to win by five strokes.

In Texas, former world No. 1 Jason Day appeared set to resume his winning ways, but his missed tiddler on the first playoff hole handed victory at the PGA Tour’s AT&T Byron Nelson to Billy Horschel, who hadn’t won since the 2014 Tour Championship that clinched him the FedEx Cup and its $10 million bonus. Though Day was no doubt kicking himself for his late lapse, his game is trending in the right direction as the U.S. Open approaches.

Meanwhile in Alabama, Bernhard Langer burnished his legend by successfully defending his title in the Regions Tradition, the season’s first senior major. Although he’s pushing 60, Langer remains a dominant wonder in senior golf – his victory Sunday was his eighth in a senior major and 31st PGA Tour Champions title overall – and he has no plans to retire soon.


A Letter from the Publisher

On behalf of the team that publishes GlobalGolfPost each week, I want to thank you for your support. It means a great deal to us that you take time each week to read our weekly golf news publication.

When we launched just 16 months ago, our goal was to deliver golf news, information and analysis to serious golfers around the world. And we were then, as we are now, determined to take advantage of all that the digital platform has available. Your response has been overwhelmingly supportive, and we appreciate that very much.

From the beginning, the journalism side of our enterprise clicked, quickly. Having such esteemed golf writers like Lewine Mair, Paul Mahoney, Dermot Gilleece and John Hopkins join us made it easy to deliver the kind of golf content you want.

And now the business side of our enterprise is starting to work well, which usually happens if you get the content right. But here's where I want to ask for your help:

I'd like you to tell all your golf friends about us. Perhaps talk up the Post at your golf course. Get your regular foursome to sign up for a free subscription. Perhaps even send an e-mail to all your golf pals and encourage them to give us a try.

The key to our success now is to grow our audience of serious golfers throughout the UK. I hope you will take a moment to help us continue to grow and delight you.

Fairways & Greens,

Jim Nugent
