Teeing it up (May 25): This week’s golf and Area Holes-In-One

PGA Tour

Event: Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 4-7 p.m., Golf Channel; Saturday and Sunday, 1-2:30 p.m., Golf Channel and 3-6 p.m., CBS.

Last year: Chris Kirk sank a 7-foot par putt on the final hole to beat Jordan Spieth, Jason Bohn and Brandt Snedeker by one stroke and claim his fourth victory on the PGA Tour. Kirk sank a 14-foot eagle putt on the first hole to kick-start a closing 4-under-par 66, and he played his last 11 holes in a flawless 3 under after recording his only bogey on the seventh hole. Spieth, trying to win for the first time in his native Texas, birdied the last hole for a 65, but his only bogey two holes earlier proved to be costly. Bohn birdied six consecutive holes through No. 7 in a 63, but again his only bogey in a 63 at No. 15 cost him a shot in a playoff. Snedeker shot 67, finishing with five pars in a row after a bogey on the 13th hole.


Event: Volvik Championship at Travis Pointe Country Club in Ann Arbor, Mich., Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 7-9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, 3-6 p.m., Golf Channel.

Then and now: This is the inaugural Volvik Championship. Last week in the LPGA, Ariya Jutanugarn became the second player this year to win back-to-back LPGA Tour events. The 20-year-old Jutanugarn fired a 4-under-par 67 in the final round of the Kingsmill Championship in Williamsburg, Va., to win by one shot.

PGA Tour Champions

Event: Senior PGA Championship at the Golf Club at Harbor Shores in Benton Harbor, Mich., Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 1-4 p.m., Golf Channel; Saturday, 2:30-5 p.m., NBC; and Sunday, 3-6 p.m., NBC.

Last year: Colin Montgomerie of Scotland successfully defended the first of his three PGA Tour Champions major titles when he shot 3-under-par 69 in the final round to win by four strokes over Esteban Toledo of Mexico at French Lick (Ind.) Resort. Monty, who finished second five times in majors – three in the U.S. Open – but never won one while playing on the PGA and European tours, repeated his four-stroke victory over Tom Watson in the 2014 Senior PGA Championship. Montgomerie’s other Champions Tour major title came when he beat Gene Sauers in a playoff at the 2014 U.S. Senior Open.
