Major season is officially over and in the nine majors in the men’s and women’s game we had nine different winners who won in nine different ways.

Danny Willett suddenly found The Masters in his lap late on Sunday when Jordan Spieth couldn’t keep his ball out of Rae’s Creek. Dustin Johnson overcame the certain uncertainty of a penalty late in the final round to win his first major – finally. Henrik Stenson played one of the two best final rounds in one of the two best head-to-head matches in major history to win the Open Championship and left Phil Mickelson flummoxed. Jimmy Walker was clearly the best player at the PGA Championship, rounding out four first-time major winners in men’s golf.

Lydia Ko won the ANA Inspiration, giving her two majors at age 18, which is something we still can’t believe. Brooke Henderson won her first major at the KPMG Women’s PGA at age 18, also something we still can’t believe.

Brittany Lang won the U.S. Women’s Open when Anna Nordqvist got caught by a super slo-mo television camera moving two grains of sand or so in the playoff. Ariya Jutanugarn won her first major at the Ricoh Women’s British Open, which might make her Player of the Year. And In Gee Chun won the Evian Championship on Sunday with a swing that Brandel Chamblee calls the best in all of golf.

There is still golf to be played and the biggest event in the game is a little more than a week away when the Ryder Cup commences. There won’t be a first-time winner, although the Americans might feel that way if they somehow prevail.

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

P.S. Just a reminder, the Post is free, and your friends can sign up for it at
