Preview of Next Issue

The PGA Tour contests the Booz Allen Classic at the Tournament Players Club at Avenel, Potomac, Maryland. It was formerly known as the Kemper Open until last year when Rory Sabbatini won it, as the FBR Capital Open, by four shots from Joe Durant, Fred Funk and Duffy Waldorf. Although this is not the easiest setup on Tour, for those that come here straight from Shinnecock Hills it will seem like a walk in the park.

The European Tour International Schedule heads of to Le Golf National in Paris for the Open de France. The last two winners recorded their first European Tour victories here, having spent 20 years each without a win. This year, there is a pretty strong field here including the likes of Trevor Immelman and Miguel Angel Jiménez who who like to add to their tally of wins for 2004 but there could be a dark horse in the field again to thwart their plans.

The Champions Tour is back in action with the Bank of America Championship at Nashawtuc Country Club, Concord, Massachusetts. Allen Doyle is defending champion and it will be interesting to see if he can keep up the form which gave him the title of the last Champions Tour event, the weather-shortened Bayer Advantage a couple of weeks ago.

The LPGA Tour is in Pittsford, NY for Wegmans Rochester LPGA. Last year Rachel Teske won by four strokes from Lorena Ochoa.
