The first major of the season is in the books, we remember a beloved Kentucky golfer and Haley Moore impresses us again with her perseverance and determination.
Take a look at the week’s top stories on the latest episode of Golfweek Rewind featured below.
The season’s first major
The California Kid stole the show at the PGA Championship. In just his second major, Collin Morikawa grabbed the outright lead by chipping in for birdie from 40 feet on the 14th and then teed up the defining shot of the tournament when he drove the 294-yard, par-4 16th and then knocked in the 7-footer for eagle. Next up on the PGA Tour is the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Danielle Kang won for a second time in as many weeks, but the lingering talk about the Marathon LPGA Classic centered around the stunning way a once-dominant Lydia Ko managed to lose the tournament. Next on the LPGA schedule is the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open beginning Thursday.

Haley Moore has been open about being bullied as a child, but she’s also been vocal about how she persevered and rose above the hardship. Because of her determination and the inspiration she is, she’s the new face of the LPGA’s Drive On campaign and our Hero of the Week.
