It’s been quite a week for Patrick Rodgers. First, he announced he would forgo his senior season at Stanford and turn pro after the NCAA Championships -- now he leads the prestigious Southern Highlands Collegiate Masters.
Greg Eason and Linnea Strom made the most significant jumps of the week in the latest World Amateur Golf Ranking, Eason winning the John Hayt Collegiate Invitational and Strom winning the Spanish Ladies Amateur.
Nicole Noelle Smith flies from her native California to Florida for the Florida Open last week. Her T-15 finish made it worth the trip. A G5 flight this wasn't. But, hey, the mini-pretzels were pretty good.
