Tour Season Finale

Welcome to The Weekly Slice.

Let’s talk golf.

Tour Roundup

PGA Tour

Camilo Villegas ended a nine-year PGA Tour title drought with a heartfelt victory at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.

The 41-year-old Colombian golfer, who last won a PGA Tour title in 2014, finished two shots clear of Sweden’s Alex Noren.

This triumph was not just a professional milestone but also a deeply personal one, as it was Villegas’s first title since the loss of his 22-month-old daughter, Mia, to cancer in 2020.

Villegas, ranked 318th in the world, showcased skill and resilience, carding a final round of 65 to finish 24 under par.

This win secures Villegas entry into next year’s Masters, PGA Championship, and Players Championship, and grants him exempt status on the US tour until 2025.

It was also a great week for the Bryan Bros, both of whom made the cut, George competing in his first-ever PGA Tour event.

This week the tour heads to Georgia for the RSM Classic, the final event in the PGA Tour season and the last chance for those players looking to keep their playing rights for next season.

Any player who finishes outside the Top 125 in the rankings will lose their full playing rights for the 2024 season.

And there’s a few big names that are struggling to have a card for next season.

Who has the nerve and ability to get the job done in a week full of immense pressure?

DP World Tour

Max Homa achieved a significant milestone in his golfing career by winning the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa, marking his first professional title outside America and his maiden victory on the DP World Tour.

Homa’s final round was a masterclass in precision and composure, as he carded a six-under 66 at the Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, finishing the tournament at 19 under par.

This impressive performance placed him four shots ahead of Nicolai Hojgaard, with Thorbjorn Olesen finishing a further shot back in third place.

It was also a massive week for those players looking to get a space on the DP World Tour for next season, with Final Stage Qualifying taking place in Spain.

The likes of Tom Lewis and Kiradech Aphibarnrat will be making their way back to the tour for next season.

This week, just like the PGA Tour, the DP World Tour heads into the final event of the season, the DP World Tour Championship.

It was a great start to the week for Rory McIlroy who picked up his fifth Race to Dubai title.

Having not played in South Africa and only competing in nine DP World Tour events, the Max Homa win meant that no one could reach McIlroy’s points total, thus winning the title.


Lilia Vu achieved a remarkable feat by securing her fourth LPGA Tour victory of the season at The Annika driven by Gainbridge in Florida, propelling her back to the world No. 1 ranking.

Starting the final round three shots behind, Vu carded a four-under 66 to finish at 19 under, three shots clear of her closest competitors, Alison Lee and Azahara Munoz.

This victory not only marked a significant comeback in the final round but also strengthened her position in the LPGA Tour Player of the Year race.

This week it’s the LPGA’s CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, Florida, which is set to be a thrilling finale with a record $2 million prize.

The top 60 players in the Race to the CME Globe will compete, with Lilia Vu and Allisen Corpuz eyeing the chance to surpass $5 million in season earnings.
