    Soderberg Tom (with two dots over the o).
    Not Solderholm or solderberg.

    I already felt bad for the guy before you butchered his name two ways from Tuesday in one article.

    But this is more about the two stars of the event:
    Fitzpatrick and Valderrama.

    As I already mentioned I just love watching this course. 6-under winning and it could have easily been a higher score if Fitzpatrick wasn’t such a sublime putter. Whether it’s holing putts or showing incredible touch from long range, what a great putter.

    That being said it’s time for the northwestern start to get a pga tour dub already to go with his 7 euro tour wins; with top 25s in all 4 majors he definitely has what it takes.

    Prayers for Casey Martin. It’s crazy to believe the pga tour argued against Martin…in the 2000s no less. Archaic.

    Speaking of archaic, the Saudis are giving women’s golf love? That’s more than just ironic. It’s just weird. How about they start with showing their own women some love first.
