Rick Returns & PGA Tour Cards

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

PGA Tour

In another amazing week of golf, fan favourite Rickie Fowler picked up his first win in four years with a captivating play-off triumph at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit.

Sinking a phenomenal birdie putt on the final hole, Fowler completed a faultless 68 on the concluding day at Detroit Golf Club, matching the 24-under score of Canada’s Adam Hadwin and double major champ Collin Morikawa.

The trio proceeded to a play-off at the par-four 18th, where Fowler scored a 12-feet birdie, securing his first PGA Tour victory since February 2019.

Only a handful of players have played better than Rickie over the past few months.

As a golf fan and a Rickie Fowler fan, seeing him back in the winner’s circle is great news.

He’s one of the good guys after all.

This week the tour heads to Illinois for the John Deere Classic, the scene of a 19-year-old Jordan Speith’s first PGA Tour victory.

DP World Tour

In England, Daniel Hillier earned his first-ever DP World Tour win with a two-shot triumph at the Betfred British Masters.

Overcoming a three-stroke deficit during a thrilling final day at The Belfry, Hillier’s final four holes featured two eagles and a birdie, culminating in a six-under 66 and a 10-under winning total.

He finished two strokes ahead of co-leader Oliver Wilson and American Gunner Wiebe, who equalled his final-round 66. These top three players secured spots in The Open via the Open Qualifying Series.

Former world No. 1, Justin Rose, was tied-fourth, three strokes behind, with Calum Hill and Ewen Ferguson.


After a week off, the LPGA Tour returns for the US Women’s Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links.

The 78th edition of the tournament will be the first time it’s been held at the iconic venue on the West Coast of America.

All eyes will be on the recent tour winner Rose Zhang who won on her first LPGA Tour start just a couple weeks ago.

It will also be the final appearance in a major for one of the game’s best stars, Michelle Wie West.

Something Useful

We don’t always have time to practice, but when we do, we often end up just smacking a bucket of balls aimlessly as hard as possible.

This might be fun, but it’s not how to improve your golf game.

This video will help give some structure to a practice session:
