Teeing it up (July 6): This week’s golf and Area Holes-In-One

PGA Tour

No event this weekend (Greenbrier Classic canceled due to flooding in West Virginia).

Next event: 145th Open Championship at Royal Troon Golf Club in Troon, Scotland, July 14-17.

LPGA Tour

Event: U.S. Women’s Open at CordeValle Golf Club in San Martin, Calif., Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 3-8 p.m., Fox Sports 1; Friday and Saturday, 3-7 p.m., Fox.

Last Year: In Gee Chun of South Korea, who was not yet a member of the LPGA Tour, made three birdies in a row through No. 17 and could afford a bogey on the last to claim a one-stroke victory over Amy Yang, also of South Korea, at Lancaster (Pa.) Country Club. Chun, who was 20 at the time and claimed seven of her 11 pro victories in Asia last year, showed it was no fluke when she tied for second earlier this year in the ANA Inspiration, one shot behind top-ranked Lydia Ko of New Zealand. Chun closed her victory with a 4-under-par 66, while Yang finished with a 71. Inbee Park of South Korea, who claimed two of her seven major titles last year, shot 67 and finished three strokes back in a tie for third.

PGA Tour Champions

Event: Dick’s Sporting Goods Open at En-Joie Country Club in Endicott, Friday through Sunday.

Last Year: Jeff Maggert captured his fourth victory of the season, including two majors, by shooting 6-under-par 66 in the final round to beat Paul Goydos by two strokes. Maggert, who earlier won the Regions Tradition in May and the U.S. Senior Open in July for his first two senior major titles, started the final round two strokes back but roared to a lead he never relinquished by collecting five birdies on the first nine holes. Goydos, who began the final round tied with Maggert, finished with a 68 and simply couldn’t keep up.
