ONE MORE TIME-Congratulations to Trish Johnson on yet another win on the Pete Dye Course, at the French Lick Resort.

But the run is over, for now anyway at French Lick. Because this was the last year of the deal to host the Senior LPGA Championship.

What started out as a five year deal, ended up being four. Because last years championship was wiped out due to Covid-19. But prior to the five year Senior-LPGA Championship, was a legends Tour event, so this more like 8 year run is now over. So where to-for the Senior LPGA Championship.

Well the hot rumor is the Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor Florida will be the home in 2022. But with new dates, like October. Because the 2022 U.S. Senior Women’s Open at NCR in the Dayton Ohio area, will jump into this years just completed Senior LPGA Championship.

BUT THE French Lick Resort isn’t done hosting championship golf. In fact in 2022, French Lick will host the Big Ten Championships in early May. The Indiana State Open (date TBD), and what becomes the biggest event on the women’s Symetra Tour the first week of August.

French Lick already had a Symetra Tour event in July, that was played on the Donald Ross course. But in 2022, the championship moves over to the Pete Dye course, for the next three years. Click on my interview with French Lick Director of Golf Dave Harner below.

I’M REALLY PROUD of Mistwood Golf Club teaching professional Nicole Jeray had another Top 25 finish in the a woman’s senior major. You can tell her game is improving by the pairings she is getting. Which included Laura Davies in yesterdays final round, and Rosie Jones on Saturday’s Round 2.

AND on the Mistwood front-kudo’s to Andy Mickelson for winning the Illinois PGA Section Championship last week at Ivanhoe. But if you missed it, check out Golfers on Golf Radio WCPT 820 AM, on the cloud. We have plenty from Mickelson on the show.

BUT IF WOULD LIKE to hear this years champion Trish Johnson, of course I have an interview with her as well.

THE BMW Championship at Caves Valley. Which is not an easy golf course, event though champion Patrick Cantlay and Bryson DeChambeau put on a show. But folks, it’s time to cut DeChambeau some slack. great guy if you get to spend anytime around him like I have. But yes-he does need to start talking to the media every week. Too bad he didn’t sink the putt on the 18th on Friday, that would have given him a score of 59.

I’M HEADED HOME for a quick overnight stay, after 3 days at the French Lick Resort. Where I must tell you, the golf courses are in great shape. But then it’s off to the Wisconsin Dells where I will catch up with my Gog Radio and podcast partner Len Ziehm who is already there. But more on that trip and the Dells new short-courses will be coming up later this week. RS
