🏆 1-1-1-1-1-7 What an epic run

+Rory got into a groove!

GM. This is Easy Pars. The golf newsletter that delights like a wide-open tee shot to a 20 handicap player.

Here’s what we’ve got for you today:

  • A place on Mt. LPGA

  • Rory looked phenomenal (4X win at Quail Hollow)

  • Update on the rivalries

Nelly Korda is one of the best

But sadly — she didn’t clinch the most wins in a row.

Top 10 is never something to balk at, especially after performing at such a high level for months.

Nelly Korda’s cemented her spot in history.

Rocky may have lost the initial bout with Clubber, but it wasn’t the end of the movie. Neither does it seem that Korda is anywhere near finished.

That said, Rose Zhang and Madelene Sagstrom had an epic battle.

Once the second day of play finished, it was clearly a two-woman race, with both ladies at least 10 strokes ahead of the field.

Their dominating lead continued into the final day of play.

Honestly feel bad for Sagstrom. She held the lead for a good bit before falling just short of victory. (It took Rose getting 4 birdies in the last 5, to win by a single stroke!)

Big Golf acts like they wish it was a certain other person in the #2 spot, duking it out for glory.

Here’s a short post-round interview. Our favorite quote, “it felt like match-play…

Rory was able to clench another victory

Look, Rory has won multiple times this year. His wins are close together, too (like a certain other golfer).

It seems there is some negative stigma and a feeling of him failing to meet expectations in his career. Rory’s honestly destroying this year.

He’s oft in the golf news for things other than his game (the board stuff, being a pro in negotiations with the PIF, etc.) At the Wells Fargo Championship, Rory surged the leaderboard — and didn’t stop — until he won by 5 strokes.

Xander Schauffele (who came in 2nd to McIlroy) puts things in perspective here:

The friendly rivalries didn’t go great for most

How’d the Bryan Bros, Matt Atkins, and Billy Horschel do?

Both bros cut, and a T46 and T52, respectively for Atkins and Horschel (note: Horschel got a last-minute invite to the Wells Fargo).

Still, we feel the future for YouTube creators and more traditional golf are certain to see increased collaboration. (Especially with the TGL ramping up!)

Speaking of TGL, here’s a short video (finally) explaining the format and rules, narrated by Rickie Fowler. Seems like it could be fun.

That’s it for this issue, golf fan. I hear the course at Valhalla is pure as can be, and we can’t wait to watch.
