DP World Tour
Keita Nakajima Dominates in India

Keida Nakajima built himself a nice cushion between himself and the field as he increased his lead to six shots just two holes into the final round of the Hero Indian Open. A rocky back 9 saw him finish one over par on the day but still win the event by four shots to become the fifth Japanese champion in DP World Tour history.

I was a little nervous and I had a tough back nine but I hit some great shots. Fortunately I had a few strokes in the bank which I can credit back to my strong play on the front nine and the earlier rounds this week, so overall very proud of my performance.

Congratulations to Keita!

What’s next on the DP World Tour?

The DP World Tour’s Asian Swing returns with the Korea Championship after the conclusion of the year’s first major championship, The Masters.

5 way tie after 54 results in Stephan Jaeger’s first PGA Tour win!

Five players were tied for the lead heading into the final round at the Houston Open this past weekend. Scottie Scheffler, David Skinns, Stephan Jaeger, Thomas Detry, and Alejandro Tosti. Four of those looking for their first win, and then Scottie Scheffler looking for his third in as many starts.

It truly came down to the wire as Jaeger found himself the leader in the clubhouse with Scheffler sticking his approach on 18 to about five feet. Fortunately for Stephan, Scottie misread the putt. Stephan gets his first PGA Tour win and is the first German to win on the PGA Tour in nearly a decade.

Congratulations to Stephan!

What’s next on the PGA Tour?

This week is the second of back-to-back Texas events on the PGA Tour with the Valero Texas Open. Because it’s the last event before The Masters, the field is quite strong. Defending champion Corey Connors faces tough competition as Rory McIlroy, Brian Harman, Ludvig Aberg, Max Homa, Matt Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood and more tee it up this week.
