Teeing it up (June 1): This week’s golf and Area Holes-In-One

PGA Tour

Event: The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 3:30-6:30 p.m. on the Golf Channel; Saturday, 12:30-2:30 p.m. on the Golf Channel and 3-6 p.m. on CBS; and Sunday, noon-2 p.m. on the Golf Channel and 2:30-6 p.m. on CBS.

Last Year: David Lingmerth of Sweden claimed his first PGA Tour victory in his 68th start, making par on the third playoff hole to turn back Justin Rose of England, who hit his drive on that hole behind a stand of trees and could not save par. Lingmerth, whose only other pro victory came in the Neediest Kids Championship on the Web.com Tour, closed with a 3-under-par 69, carding three birdies in a span of five holes through No. 15. Rose, who had a three-stroke lead entering the final round, fell behind by carding four bogeys on the front nine, but he fought back to force the playoff with four birdies on the back nine, the last on a 12-foot putt at the 17th hole.

LPGA Tour

Event: ShopRite LPGA Classic at Stockton Seaview Resort and Golf Club in Galloway, N.J., Friday through Sunday.

TV: Friday, noon-3 p.m.; Saturday, 3-5 p.m.; and Sunday, 2-4 p.m.; Golf Channel.

Last Year: Anna Nordqvist of Sweden birdied the 16th and 17th holes on her way to a 2-under-par 69 and collected her fifth LPGA Tour victory by one stroke over Christel Boeljon of France. Norqvist, who won for the first time with her mother Maria in the gallery on what was Mother’s Day in Sweden, holed a 12-foot putt on the 16th hole and an 8-footer on the 17th. That gave her a two-stroke lead, and she survived a bogey on the final hole. Boeljon, winless on the LPGA Tour, finished with a 68 but missed an 18-inch birdie putt on the final hole while playing one group ahead of Nordqvist. That didn’t seem critical until Nordqvist made her closing bogey.

PGA Tour Champions

Event: Principal Charity Classic at Wakonda Club in Des Moines, Iowa, Friday through Sunday.

TV: Friday, 7-9 p.m.; Saturday, 5-7 p.m.; and Sunday, 4-6 p.m.; Golf Channel.

Last Year: Mark Calcavecchia earned his third victory on the senior circuit, closing with a 3-under-par 69 to beat Brian Henninger and Joe Durant by one stroke with a putter he bought in a sporting goods store earlier in the week. Calcavecchia, who won 13 times on the PGA Tour, including the 1989 Open Championship at Royal Troon, was solid in the final round, making his only bogey at No. 14 but bouncing back with a birdie that made the difference one hole later. Henninger shot 69 with four birdies on the last five holes but fell one short, while Durant had two late birdies in a 69.
