From a Golf Channel press release.

ORLANDO, Fla. (August 15, 2017) – The best in the women’s game representing the U.S. and Europe are in Des Moines, Iowa for the biennial Solheim Cup. Juli Inkster and Annika Sorenstam captain the Americans and Europeans respectively in their quest to claim the trophy. This year marks the Solheim Cup’s return to network television for the first time in 15 years, as NBC will broadcast coverage on Saturday and Sunday. The last time the two teams met in 2015, the United States narrowly clinched the victory, 14 ½ - 13 ½, the closest margin in the event’s history. The PGA TOUR will stay in North Carolina this week as players head to Sedgefield Country Club for the Wyndham Championship; the last tournament before the start of the FedExCup Playoffs. Kevin Kisner, who led the PGA Championship going into the final round, and world No. 9 Henrik Stenson headline the field as players look to cement...

JUSTIN THOMAS BROKE FROM A PACK of contenders to win the 99th PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The son of a PGA club professional and a close friend of three-time major winner Jordan Spieth, Thomas shot a closing 68 to claim his first major victory.

"[T]he PGA definitely had a special place in my heart," Thomas said, "and maybe a special drive. It's just a great win for the family, and it’'s a moment we'll never forget — all of us."

Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen finished in a tie for second. Third-round leader Kevin Kisner (74), who held at least a share of the lead for much of Sunday, faltered on the incoming nine and tied for seventh. World No. 3 Hideki Matsuyama also stumbled to the...

ABOVE AND BELOW ARE CLIPS of Jackie Burke Jr., who was on 'Feherty' this past week. Can you believe this man is 94?

In the above sequence, Burke talks about the golf swing and hits a few balls. Below, he tells David Feherty about playing the tour in the 1950s when everyone held a club pro job. (There was very little money on the circuit.) If you did well at tournaments, you could get your name in the New York Times, Burke explained. Lessons would then pick up and increase your earnings.

Burke won 16 times on the PGA Tour, including the Masters and PGA Championship in 1956. He was also a Ryder Cup player (7-1-0) and captain.

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA HASN'T WON A MAJOR, but it seems as if it's just a matter of time for the No. 3 ranked golfer in the world.

The Japanese star rallied to win the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational on Sunday (his third victory this season) by putting together a record-tying 61 on Firestone Country Club. The blistering round included birdies on the final three holes. Zach Johnson was a distant second, five shots off the pace.

Matsuyama has now won two World Golf Championships. He bagged the HSBC Champions last fall. It, too, was a blowout, with Matsuyama winning by seven strokes.

But the 25-year-old PGA Tour player didn't see a 61 at Firestone, or another title, especially after a final round warm-up session that left him wondering about the direction of the golf ball.

"[M]y expectations really at the beginning of this week weren't that high ... and here we are," Matsuyama said.

The PGA Championship begins at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte on Thursday.

"I'm gonna try something stupid here."

DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Why? Because you're not Jordan Spieth.

Even Jordan Spieth questioned his own intelligence. But he went ahead with the shot, telling caddie Michael Greller, "Put the bag over there and just watch, OK?"

This must be why it's hard to talk players out of a shot if you're Greller or Bones, Phil's former bag man. They're capable of anything. And they know it.

Spieth shot an opening 67 at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

This edited report is courtesy of Marc Whitney at the American Society of Golf Course Architects (ASGCA).

Tom Marzolf (Fazio Golf Course Designers, Inc.) and Senior Design Associate Blake Bickford responded to questions via Twitter on July 26, discussing Quail Hollow Club, Charlotte, North Carolina, host to the 2017 PGA Championship that begins next week.

Here's an edited version of their chat with golf fans.

Q: Can you talk about the rich history and design of Quail Hollow Club?

A: George Cobb, ASGCA, designed course which first opened in 1961. We still use the same fairway corridors today. Though the greens are certainly larger.
