THE HOLE TRUTH

May 19 2016


Some news and views, notes and quotes as Rideau View's Golf Insider C.J. Stevenson takes a look at what's ahead in the world of golf ... Fritsch's foot still not good to go, but players are kicking in to help Fort Mac ... Henderson kicking off a stretch of nine weeks in a row.



THE DUDES

Rideau View member Brad Fritsch tweeted Thursday morning his sore foot still isn't good enough to allow him to play this week on the Web.com Tour.

"Won't be making my 930am tee time today @BMWCharityProAm. Foot is still not ready to take a beating. Hope is to be ready for Dominican week," he tweeted.

The Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic will be played June 2-5.

In the mean time, players on the Web.com Tour, as well as players on the Mackenzie Tour - PGA TOUR Canada will be making donations based on the birdies they make to the Fort McMurray relief effort.

The Web.com Tour and the Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada made a joint donation of $20,000 to the Fort McMurray relief effort. The Fort McMurray Golf Club has hosted a Mackenzie Tour-PGA TOUR Canada event for years.

"I'm really pleased that the Web.com Tour and the membership are coming together to support such a worthy cause. A lot of us are Mackenzie Tour alums, and thus played in Fort McMurray. As well, many of us stayed with host families there, in homes we can only assume are now gone or badly damaged," Fritsch said on PGATOUR.com.

"What we are doing this week is a small token of our gratitude towards the Fort McMurray community. They support professional golf and golfers, so it is incumbent upon us to step up and help them in their time of need. Hopefully we can raise a whole lot of money and help with the process of rebuilding their lives."

Fans can get involved and donate based on their favourite players' performances here: www.Together.PGATOUR.com.

Fritsch is second on the Web.com money list with $186,989.58 and is set to earn his PGA TOUR card for 2016-17.

THE LADIES

Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls enjoyed a week off as the LPGA Tour schedule had a break last week, but now they are back at it for 11 weeks in a row and Henderson plans on playing for the next nine weeks.

The LPGA resumes with the Kingsmill Championship presented by JTBC in Williamsburg, Va., this week.

"My strategy is pretty simple. I'm signed up for all of them right now," said Henderson. "I like to play a lot of tournaments to keep things going well like they are, so hopefully I'll get off to a fast start this week, and then just kind of listen to my body after that, and if I need to take a break, then I'll just decide accordingly."

Henderson, the fifth-ranked player in the world, is ninth on the LPGA money list with
$451,459.
