Dustin City Limits

by Mike Cullity

Shortly after the University of South Carolina Gamecocks basketball squad advanced to its first NCAA Final Four in school history on Sunday, a native son of the Palmetto State cemented his status as the man to beat at Augusta National next week.

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, the reigning PGA Tour Player of the Year, was on song again last week, this time in the so-called live music capital of the world. He captured the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, holding off a late rally by young Spaniard Jon Rahm to prevail, 1 up, in the final at Austin (Texas) Country Club.

The victory was Johnson’s third in a row and his second straight in a World Golf Championship event. He is a golfer in full as The Masters beckons. And so too is Rahm, 22, one of the game’s up-and-coming stars. Don’t be surprised to see him in the hunt at Augusta.

In Southern California, long-hitting Mirim Lee won the LPGA’s Kia Classic by six strokes, posting four rounds in the 60s and a tournament record-tying 20-under-par total on the way to her third title on the tour. Perhaps more noteworthy, defending champion and world No. 1 Lydia Ko – the 19-year-old wunderkind who recently has changed equipment, caddies and coaches – missed the 36-hole cut for only the second time in 95 LPGA starts. That’s mind-boggling consistency over a stretch that began in 2012, when she was 14.

This week in the California desert, Ko defends her crown – and the No. 1 ranking, which Ariya Jutanugarn could seize with a victory – at the ANA Inspiration, the first women’s major of the year.

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
