Congaree puts its course, mission on display on PGA Tour

RIDGELAND, S.C. (AP) — Tucked in a remote location off I-95 in sparsely populated southern South Carolina, a hidden Tom Fazio layout is ready to show itself off to a national audience when the PGA Tour holds the Palmetto Championship at Congaree Golf Club this week.
“We’re rural, not remote,” said Bruce Davidson, Congaree’s golf director.
It’s hard to tell the difference. There’s no signage pointing the way from the highway or a big, splashy entrance welcoming golfers and fans when they arrive.

Rickie Fowler‘s bid to qualify for the US Open ended in disappointment on Tuesday, the out-of-form American world number 87 missing out on a spot at Torrey Pines by one shot.
Fowler, who finished tied for eighth place at last month’s PGA Championship but also failed to qualify for this year’s Masters, has not missed a US Open since 2010.
The 32-year-old, who finished tied for 11th at the Memorial on Sunday, had been hoping to grab an Open berth in the 36-hole qualifier played on two courses in Ohio on Monday.

Could Rahm have played through COVID?

On Saturday in Dublin, Ohio, golfer Jon Rahm was 24 hours away from $1.7 million. He had cruised through the first three rounds of the Memorial Tournament with a six-stroke lead. He was locked in. He was healthy. Until he was informed that, despite what his body told him, he wasn’t healthy.
Rahm, who reportedly hadn’t been vaccinated prior to a COVID-19 exposure earlier in the week, tested positive for the virus, the result coming in the middle of his third round. He was forced to withdraw from the tournament and forfeit his likely winnings.

(Refiles to correct headline to says, not say)
By Rory Carroll
SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) –Lexi Thompson admitted it was hard to smile after a painful back nine collapse at the U.S. Women’s Open on Sunday, but the American fan favorite said she would learn from the experience and come back stronger.

Memorial as much about Cantlay winning as Rahm not playing

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — So much about the Memorial felt as though golf was back to normal.
Thousands of fans surrounded the 18th hole, with tournament founder Jack Nicklaus sitting behind the green as he waited to greet the winner. Patrick Cantlay had a firm grip on the crystal trophy, just like he did two years ago the last time spectators roamed Muirfield Village.
It even rained, though not for very long.
But so much about Cantlay’s playoff victory Sunday over Collin Morikawa made this Memorial unlike any of the previous 45 editions.
