Munich Miracle

by Mike Cullity

Andrés Romero’s golf heyday came nearly a decade ago. He finished third in the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie, a shot out of the playoff between eventual winner Pádraig Harrington and Sergio García, a week before winning a European Tour event in Germany. Eight months later, he notched his lone PGA Tour victory, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Last week, the 36-year-old Argentine returned to Germany to compete on a sponsor exemption in the European Tour’s BMW International Open, having earned less than $100,000 in five PGA Tour starts this season. Ranked 837th in the world, Romero made a hole-in-one during the first round and closed with a 65 to win in his first European Tour start since 2012. Among those tied for second, a stroke back, was García, now the reigning Masters champion.

Another green jacket winner, Jordan Spieth, stunned Daniel Berger at the PGA Tour’s Travelers Championship by holing a bunker shot for birdie and victory on the first playoff hole in Connecticut. Spieth became the second-youngest player (23 years, 10 months) in the modern era to win 10 PGA Tour titles, trailing only Tiger Woods, who was four months younger when he won the 1999 Motorola Western Open. (Jack Nicklaus was 24 when he won his 10th, the 1964 Tournament of Champions.)

Meanwhile, So Yeon Ryu displayed grand form in winning the LPGA’s Walmart NW Arkansas Championship. Ryu, 26, shot 61 in the second round and set a tournament scoring record of 18-under par for 54 holes. Winner of the year’s first major, the ANA Inspiration, amid the Lexi Thompson rules imbroglio, Ryu enters the tour’s impending stretch of three majors in six weeks a good bet to capture another.

 

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
