The Tour season has been an exciting one thus far in 2018. As a matter of fact if you could have a soundtrack to sum up the 2018 season so far I think a song by Cher comes to mind. “If I Could Turn Back Time” would be the perfect choice. We’ve seen long-awaited visits back to the “winner’s circle” by Michelle Wie and Phil Mickelson. Yes, there’s Tiger Woods as well reminding this generation of what he was (and is) to golf. however, as big as those story lines are let’s not forget about Laura Davies.
Dame Laura Davies made golf fans excited this past weekend on the LPGA Tour. I watched the LPGA Founders Cup last weekend and I became enthralled with the movement on the leaderboard. The tournament already exciting was made even moreso by the fact that Davies at the ripe age of 54 turned back the clock and was in contention to win the tournament. Unfortunately, she wouldn’t win the event and finished in a tie for second behind winner Inbee Park.

Just weeks after relaunching in the USA, Lynx® Golf came within a whisker of gaining a first LPGA Tour victory as its ambassador Dame Laura Davies finished second in the LPGA Founders Cup at the Wildfire Golf Club, Phoenix, Arizona, on Sunday (March 18th).
The four-time Major winner, World Golf Hall of Fame inductee, first non-American to top the LPGA money list and seven-time winner of the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit finished in a share of second place, behind winner Inbee Park.
With a Lynx® Black Cat driver fitted with a Fujikura Speeder Evolution 757 shaft and Lynx® Parallax irons and Lynx® Prowler wedges fitted with Nippon NS Pro 950GH shafts, the England star was hoping to record her 85th worldwide professional win but settled for her best finish for over a decade and her first top 10 place since 2014.
Congratulating Davies on her astounding performance – the 54-year-old would have become the oldest-ever winner of a LPGA Tour event had she taken top spot – Lynx® Golf CEO, Steve Elford, said: “This was a magnificent performance and everyone at Lynx was so excited watching Laura take on the youngsters and show she still has what it takes to compete at the very highest level.
“Lynx is now a British, family-owned golf business but we took the decision to relaunch in the USA because we know Lynx still has such a strong affinity there. To see Laura flying the Lynx® flag so proudly on the LPGA Tour and proving that our products are up with the very best, was so exciting for all of our team.”
Following its debut at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando in January, the Lynx® 2018 range will be available for the first time in the USA from next month (April) through Dallas Golf http://www.dallasgolf.com.
Until The Next Tee!!
