Tiger Returns

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

DP World Tour

Min Woo Lee got cooking at the Australian PGA Championship, securing his third DP World Tour win with a three-shot victory over Rikuya Hoshino.

Starting the day with a three-shot lead, Lee faced early challenges, including a bogey on the first hole and Hoshino’s strong start.

His final round of 68 brought him to a 20-under-par total, with Hoshino finishing second and Marc Leishman climbing to third place.

Lee’s victory at the Royal Queensland Golf Club marks a significant moment in his career, underlining his growing stature in the golfing world.

Meanwhile at the Joburg Open in South Africa, Dean Burmester emerged victorious, clinching his third DP World Tour title and his first in two and a half years.

Burmester’s win was helped by a final-round meltdown from overnight leader Thriston Lawrence.

Burmester delivered a winning performance with a bogey-free round, including six birdies, to finish 18 under par.

His closest competitor, Darren Fichardt, also from South Africa, finished second with a score of 16 under.

Lawrence, who had led the tournament after the first round and held a three-shot lead after the third round, experienced a significant setback in the final round.

He dropped four strokes in the first five holes and recorded a double-bogey, ultimately finishing tied in seventh place with a five-over 75, eight shots worse than his performance in the initial rounds.

This week the DP World Tour stays in Australia and South Africa, where both Min Woo Lee and Dean Burmester look to go back-to-back on home soil.

Make It Two For Luke

Luke Donald, after leading Team Europe to a 16.5-11.5 victory over Team USA in Rome, has been reappointed as the captain for the 2025 Ryder Cup at Bethpage Black in New York.

This makes him the first back-to-back Ryder Cup captain since Bernard Gallacher in the mid-1990s.

Donald’s decision to accept the role again was influenced by the strong support and chants of “two more years” from players like Shane Lowry and Rory McIlroy.

He described the decision as humbling and gratifying, acknowledging the strong bonds created with the team and the importance of their praise in his decision-making process.
