Renovations at Muirfield for Memorial Tournament and continues for 2013 President’s Cup

Fans of the Memorial Tournament have noticed quite a few changes this year at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

In years past, the shuttle vans and buses would drop people off on at the Kinross entrance to the course. But this year, Tournament Director Dan Sullivan and the rest of the powers that be, decided a new entrance was needed.

There has been a bus depot created into a turnaround on Memorial Drive by the driving range and another one at the main entrance.

The driving range gives the spectators more of a view and how much goes into the players practice before the actual rounds of golf. The improvement allows the golfers to actually simulate what goes on the course with driving greens as well.

Jack Nicklaus, founder and course architect at Muirfield has been giving the course improvements, little-by-little in preparation for the 2013 President’s Cup.

The driving range went from 286 yards and now measures 330 feet. He added mounding and trees, greens and replica fairways as well.

One last change noticed by fans this week is the hospitality area. All tents have been moved to the middle of the course right off the 10th fairway.

Nicklaus always says he is never satisfied and is always looking for ways to improve the course and tournament.

American teenager Jessica Korda, 18, the daughter of Petr Korda, the 1998 winner of the Men’s Australian Open in tennis, won the women’s golf version of the tournament in Melbourne, for her first LPGA title.

The younger Korda sanked a 25-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a six-player playoff.

Korda closed the tournament with a 1-over-par 74 to finish at 3-under-par 289 in the LPGA Tour’s 2012 opening event. It was also the first women’s first professional event at Royal Melbourne, the site of the 2011 President’s Cup.

The 6-player playoff which equalled the largest in LPGA history included Stacy Lewis, Brittany Lincicome, Julieta Granada, So Yeon Ryu and Hee Kyung Seo.

Finally after two years, Tiger Woods wins a golf tournament

Tiger Woods has overcome a bunch of distractions in the past two years totaling 26 tournaments.

He has gone winless on the PGA Tour, lost several key endorsements, turmoil which ended his marriage and has overhauled his golf game several times.

Recently, he has done well in the Presidents’ Cup and now the Chevron World Challenge which he won.

The 35-year-old golf star won the tournament on a 6-foot birdie putt which he made to cap off a birdie-birdie finish at Sherwood in Thousand Oaks, California.  The California native closed the final round with a 3-under-par 69 and beat former Masters champion Zach Johnson by a single shot.

Woods won the event which he is the host for his charity foundation, for the fifth time. Overall for the week, he finished at 10-under-278 and donated the winner’s purse of $1.2 million to his foundation.

Woods, trailing by one shot with two holes to play, showed his old magic making clutch putts. He holed a 15-foot for birdie on the par-3 17th hole to get into a tie with Johnson. Then he hit a 9-iron from 158 yards that landed on the ridge behind the hole and rolled down to 6 feet.

Golf fans in Ohio may not know, but the Presidents Cup will be coming to Muirfield Village Golf Club in 2013.

The Presidents Cup is a biennial match-play competition between 12-man teams representing the U.S. and the rest of the world minus Europe.

It’ll be played on the course Jack Nicklaus built, October 3-6, 2013.

The Memorial Tournament has announced a program which will give patrons who purchase tickets to the 2012 Memorial at Muirfield Village a discount on tickets to the 2013 Presidents Cup. The discount looks this way, $165 for the week compared to $207. Memorial badges will stay at $155 in 2012.

For those fans who do not purchase Memorial tickets will be able to buy Presidents Cup tickets for the full price, after the June 2012 Memorial Tournament.

Muirfield Village will be making history when it hosts the Presidents Cup. It’ll be the only golf course in the world to have hosted the Presidents Cup, Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup. The Solheim is team competition between women golfers from the U.S. and Europe.
