NCAAWILMINGTON, N.C. - If their latest tournament was a political race, then the No. 5 Purdue women's golf team's victory was a landslide at the 2005 Landfall Tradition in Wilmington, N.C., on Sunday.
 
The Boilermakers, who have won three of four fall events this season, fired a second-round 286, their best of the three-day event, to run away by 17 strokes from the field. Purdue totaled 877 over the 54 holes and Wake Forest took second place with a total of 894.
 
For the third time in four tournaments, a different Purdue individual took home top honors.
 
Senior Onnarin Sattayabanphot won the Badger Invitational on Sept. 12 and freshman Maria Hernandez took home top honors at the Lady Northern Invitational on Sept. 25.
 
Freshman Christel Boeljon picked the perfect time to shoot the lowest round of the tournament by three strokes. Boeljon was in second place after the first two rounds when she posted five birdies and no bogeys on Sunday during her four-stroke victory over Tulsa's Leisl Hasbrouck. Boeljon totaled a 212 and posted two of three rounds (74-71-67) under par.
 
Junior Myrte Eikenaar finished tied for fourth after totaling 221. She posted a 75 on Sunday after a one-under par 71 in the second round.
 
Sattayabanphot tied for eighth place overall after a final-round 72. Sattayabanphot's score improved every round of the event and she finished with a total of 223.
 
Sophomore Whitney Frykman placed 11th after a total of 225. She posted a 75 on Sunday. Hernandez finished in 12th place. She rebounded after a second-round 78 to fire an even-par 72 in the final round. All five Boilermakers are in the top 12 among individuals.

The Landfall Tradition is also featured a 12-team men's tournament.
 
Both tournaments were held on the Jack Nicklaus designed Nicklaus Course at the Country Club of Landfall. The men's track is a par 72, 6,992-yard layout. The women's course was a par 72, 6,070-yard challenge.
 
The Boilermakers are in action again on Nov. 11 to 13 at the Hooters Match Play Championships. The 16-team event is a match play, double-elimination tournament. Purdue is the No. 2 seed. UCLA is the top seed on the tournament.

    Rose leads halted Indonesian Masters; Snedeker WDs

    By Associated PressDecember 15, 2017, 2:04 pm

    JAKARTA, Indonesia - Justin Rose held a three-stroke lead at the Indonesian Masters when bad weather stopped play Friday during the second round.

    The Englishman, who shot a 10-under 62 on Thursday, had completed 13 holes and was 5 under on the day at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club course.

    Kiradech Aphibarnrat (64) was in second place.

    Brandt Snedeker withdrew wit on the 11th hole at 2 under for the day after shooting an opening 72.

    There was no reason given for his withdrawal, but the American has been affected by a rib-sternum injury for most of the season. Ranked 51st in the world, he flew to Jakarta looking to move inside the top 50 by the end of the year and ensure a spot in next year's Masters.

    Newsmaker of the Year: No. 2, Donald Trump

    By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 15, 2017, 1:00 pm

    Even away from the White House, President Donald Trump generated plenty of headlines this year.

    Trump’s first year in office didn’t dim his enthusiasm for the game, as he made splashy appearances at two big events, tweeted about golf to his more than 44 million followers, teed it up with some of the sport’s biggest stars, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Lexi Thompson, and fired a few eyebrow-raising scores. Logging more than 75 rounds since his inauguration, the 3-handicap has only bolstered his reputation as the best golfing president, particularly after his alleged 73 with Sen. Lindsey Graham.

    None of his appearances created a bigger stir than when he attended the U.S. Women’s Open. Despite protests and calls for the USGA to move its premier women’s event from Trump Bedminster – the president reportedly threatened to sue – his weekend there went off without incident, as Trump watched the action and hosted players in his private box near the 15th green.


    Full list of 2017 Newsmakers of the Year


    Despite his controversial rhetoric on a variety of national issues, Trump has remained a staunch supporter of women’s golf, and he became the first sitting president to attend the U.S. Women’s Open.

    An honorary chairman of the Presidents Cup, Trump also flew to Liberty National for the biennial team event, where he presented the trophy to the U.S. team and dedicated the victory to the hurricane victims in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

    In late November, amid tweets about the national anthem, Turkey, Egypt and Time Magazine, Trump announced that he was playing a round in South Florida with Woods and world No. 1 Dustin Johnson.

    Yes, that too became a headline, just like everything else Trump did in 2017.

    Spieth, Thomas headline winter break trip to Cabo

    By Grill Room TeamDecember 15, 2017, 1:05 am

    Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth. Really good at golf. Really good at vacationing.

    With #SB2K18 still months away, Thomas and Spieth headlined a vacation to Cabo San Lucas, and this will shock you but it looks like they had a great time.

    Spring break veteran Smylie Kaufman joined the party, as did Thomas' roommate, Tom Lovelady, who continued his shirtless trend.

    The gang played all the hits, including shoeless golf in baketball jerseys and late nights with Casamigos tequila.

    In conclusion, it's still good to be these guys.
