Gran Canaria Lopesan Open

The LPGA starts a day later on Friday, so I’ll add that tomorrow. The  Euro Tour starts the ball rolling this week with the Gran Canaria Lopesan Open at Meloneras Golf, on the Canary Islands a Spanish outcrop which fortunately has sufficient dunes for 7 courses!  The course designed by Ron Kirby was finished in 2006 and immediately won praise from competitors at the Spanish PGA.  The course is a very short 6503 yards par 70.

Zurich Classic

The PGA Tour returns to TPC Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The course was designed by Pete Dye with input from Steve Ellington and Kelly Gibson and at 7425 yards (6790m) par 72 is also rated at 138 and a course rating of 76.3 The event is a two man best ball team event which complicates tipping considerably.

Teams noticeably difficult to predict so just. Few outliers

Wait for these prices!
