Number of regionals to be completed Wednesday to determine the field for the NCAA Division I Women’s Golf Championship. The national tournament will be played May 17-22 at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville, Ark. (regional scores: Opelika, Ala.; Cle Elum, Wash.; East Lansing, Mich.; Norman, Okla.).
Number of players to have hosted the European Tour’s Betfred British Masters, which begins today at Hillside Golf Club in Southport, England. Tommy Fleetwood, who grew up in Southport, plays the role of tournament host this week, joining countrymen Luke Donald, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose and Lee Westwood. The job apparently takes its toll. Last year, Rose recorded the best finish by a British Masters host, with a tie for ninth at Walton Heath Golf Club. The tournament, which dates to 1946, returned to the European Tour schedule in 2015 after a six-year absence (tee times).
