Dairy Doings

by Mike Cullity

The eyes of the golf world will be on America’s cheese capital this week as the US Open is contested in the state of Wisconsin for the first time. Although host site Erin Hills isn’t exactly an untested championship venue – the USGA staged the US Amateur there in 2011 – it’s a little-known quantity among the world’s best players.

A rolling, windswept layout with some generous landing areas and swaths of deep fescue, Erin Hills more closely resembles a links course than a traditional US Open layout. The USGA should be lauded for taking the national championship outside the box, but as its Chambers Bay experiment in 2015 proved, unconventional thinking comes with risks.

After Chambers Bay and last year’s Dustin Johnson rules fiasco, the blue blazers no doubt are hoping for a championship that’s as palatable as fine cheddar – and not a Limburger stinker.

In Austria, South African Dylan Frittelli – who as a collegian in America made the NCAA Championship-winning putt for a 2012 University of Texas squad that included Jordan Spieth – won his first European Tour title, the Lyoness Open. Frittelli broke through after two playoff losses on the circuit, one of them earlier this year in China, and at 27 he appears primed for ascent.

In Memphis, fortysomething major champions Phil Mickelson and Stewart Cink were in the hunt but young lion Daniel Berger successfully defended his FedEx St. Jude Classic title. And with a birdie on the first playoff hole in Canada, Ariya Jutanugarn won the Manulife LPGA Classic after third-round leader Lexi Thompson limped home. The victory was projected to move Jutanugarn past Lydia Ko to No. 1 in the world.


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
