Grillo’s Grit: A Rollercoaster Victory

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

PGA Tour

It was a day of high drama at the Charles Schwab Challenge as Emiliano Grillo finally clinched his first PGA TOUR victory in over seven years.

Grillo narrowly edged out Adam Schenk in a thrilling playoff, both finishing the tournament at 8-under 272.

The match was a rollercoaster ride, with Grillo losing a two-stroke lead on the 72nd hole due to a double-bogey, only to make a stunning comeback and secure victory with a birdie on the second playoff hole.

Meanwhile, Schenk, the Indiana native, was left waiting for his first victory, securing his second runner-up finish of the season.

The tournament was not without its surprises, with Grillo’s ball ending up in a drainage canal on 18:

Other notable performances included PGA TOUR rookie Harry Hall and world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler tying for third place at 7-under.

Scheffler also scored a hole-in-one at the 189-yard 8th hole during his final round​:

This week the tour heads to Muirfield Village for the Memorial Tournament, hosted by legendary Jack Nicklaus.

It’s one of the toughest tests in the season, so expect a big name to come out on top at the end of the week.

The way Scottie Scheffler is playing, I can’t see him not winning this.

DP World Tour

In a show of sheer golfing grit, Spanish star Pablo Larrazabal snatched his ninth DP World Tour title at the KLM Open, making it his second triumph in just four weeks​​.

Despite a rocky start with a double-bogey, Larrazabal proved his mettle by recovering with back-to-back birdies and an epic birdie run in the final four holes​.

Hot on his heels were Adrian Otaegui, Rasmus Hojgaard and Deon Germishuys, but the day belonged to Larrazabal, a golfing force in top form​.

LPGA Tour

Pajaree Anannarukarn claimed her second LPGA title at the Bank of Hope Match Play in Las Vegas, outlasting Ayaka Furue in a true marathon of golf at the scenic Shadow Creek.

The Thai golfing star, soon turning 24, graced her birthday week with an impressive performance, including 12 birdies in the final 34 holes on Sunday​​.

Anannarukarn now proudly stands alongside fellow Thai golfers Atthaya Thitikul, Moriya Jutanugarn, Jasmine Suwannapura, and Ariya Jutanugarn, all holding at least two LPGA titles in their careers.

Something Useful

For some golfers, a bunker can be a real card wrecker.

But it really shouldn’t be.

Here’s a great video from one of the best bunker players in the game, on how to hit high and low shots out the sand:

Something Funny

Still struggling from the sand?

Why not try putter instead?

Just like DP World Tour player and all round funny man, Marcus (The Bullet) Armitage:
