Bunker to Bunker Golf Latest News AZ | Phoenix Arizona Golf Press Releases

Jesse Mueller GolfMARICOPA, Ariz. – September 13, 2017 – Playing in his first Southwest PGA Championship, Jesse Mueller made his debut one to remember. The co-leader in each of the first two rounds carded a 6-under-par 66 in the final round and captured the 60th PING Southwest PGA Championship by two strokes at Ak-Chin Southern Dunes Golf Club.
“I rate this as a 10 out of 10,” said Mueller. “My first Section Championship and I get a win, which you don’t get to win that often in golf. It’s something I don’t take for granted, especially since I don’t play that much anymore. I’ll cherish this forever because you don’t know when you’re going to get a chance to win a big tournament like this. It was an awesome experience all the way around.”
At the start of the final round, Mueller, 34, PGA Director of Golf at Grand Canyon University G.C., was tied with Craig Hocknull for the lead and paired together in the final grouping of the day.

Callaway's X Forged irons have somewhat of a cult following in the equipment industry. The better player model made its debut in 2007 and last saw an update in 2013, but that hasn't stopped several Callaway staffers from continuing to play the iron, including Phil Mickelson.

Based on photos from an Alba story out of Japan, Mickelson and others might not have to wait too much longer for the next installment. According to the article, Callaway's new X Forged will debut in Asia in mid-October with updated grooves and a new cavity-back design.

Callaway Japan has not yet listed the irons on its website, but what many golfers in the U.S. are wondering is if the company will release X Forged in the States at some point.

While Callaway has remained quiet regarding the possibility of a launch, the sheer popularity of the cavity-back iron makes it safe to assume something is in the works.

The BMW Championship is the third of four events in the FedExCup Playoffs and determines the final field of 30 for the TOUR Championship. The event takes place at Conway Farms Golf Course in Lake Forest, IL.

In 2016, Dustin Johnson won the championship by closing with a 5-under 67, beating Paul Casey by 3 shots.
