Teeing it up (April 27): This week’s golf

PGA Tour

Event: Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana in Avondale, La., Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 3-6 p.m., Golf Channel; Saturday and Sunday, 1-2:30 p.m., Golf Channel and 3-6 p.m., CBS.

Last year: Justin Rose of England birdied the last two holes to beat Cameron Tringale by one stroke and claim his seventh victory on the PGA Tour, winning on the circuit for the sixth consecutive season. Tringale, who shot 65 in the final round, left a 50-foot eagle putt short on the final hole that would have forced a playoff. He tapped in for a birdie. His round included an eagle on the seventh hole, where he holed his second shot of 66 feet from off the green. Rose, who shot 66, sank a 10-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole and a 14-footer on the last hole. The Englishman had a double bogey and a bogey in the first six holes of an opening 69, but he played the last 66 holes without a blemish on his scorecard.

LPGA Tour

Event: Volunteers of America Texas Shootout at Las Colinas Country Club in Irving, Texas, Thursday through Sunday. TV: Thursday and Friday, 12:30-2:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, 3-6 p.m., Golf Channel.

Last year: Inbee Park of South Korea captured the tournament for the second time in three years, closing with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 65 to beat Cristie Kerr and Hee Young Park, also of South Korea, by three strokes. Park, who claimed the second of her five LPGA Tour victories in 2015 and now has 17 in her career, took the lead for good with birdies on the second and third holes, added another at No. 9 and made three more in the last seven holes. Kerr birdied two of the last three holes for a 66, while Hee Young Park eagled the third hole and birdied the last two while also finishing with a 66.
