Golf Brianza Country Club have today announced their attachment to one of Italy’s up and coming stars, Lorenzo Scalise. 

Designed in the late 1980’s and located in the Lombardy region, Golf Brianza boasts a technically demanding 18 hole golf course, as well as a top class driving range with short game facilities. 

The course unravels with beautiful scenery surrounding it and renowned for being tricky, it demands accurate tee-shots from golfers, who have to navigate their way around 4 feature ponds and the hilly terrain.

“I have spent a lot of time at Golf Brianza over the years and I’ve always received a warm welcome there”, said Scalise. “The practice facilities are fantastic, whether it is the driving range or the indoor putting studio and the strategic layout of the golf course helps me to fine tune my game ahead of my professional tournaments. I look forward to representing Golf Brianza when I tee it up this year”.

“Golf Brianza Country Club and myself are very proud about our new partnership with Lorenzo”, said Nicola Colombo, president of GCB. “We are excited to have Loernzo as part of our club and he will be crucial in helping us to develop our junior programme through clinics and also by sharing his professional experience. I believe Lorenzo will bring a lot of enthusiasm to our programme and I know he will inspire our kids to follow their dreams to become a professional golfer, just like he did”. 

Lorenzo is currently preparing to tee it up at the Austrian Open next week on the European Tour, which will then be followed by the Gran Canaria Open.

Following on from the successful activation of Adrian Meronk’s new partnership with White Eagle Sport, we are pleased to announce a strategic expansion to the partnership which will also include their corporate branding on the belly of Adrian’s golf bag, which will co-exist with their original branding on his sleeve.

White Eagle Sport are a new multi-sport events company based in Dubai and are becoming increasingly known in the Emirate for the success they’ve achieved in hosting some of the largest events in the country this year. 

“The White Eagle Sport team have been so supportive of me since I met them and I’m looking forward to continuing to actively promote the great work that they are doing”, said Meronk. “They know how to organise fantastic events and are going to be one of the leading companies in their field in the not too distant future”. 

“We are very happy to announce the expansion of our partnership with Adrian Meronk”, said Marta Biswas, owner of White Eagle LLC. “Adrian is a great young man, with an incredible talent and we are so proud to see him sporting our company logo and be associated with White Eagle Sport, as he competes all around the world.”

Adrian has played three tournaments this season on the European Tour and was right in the mix at the Magical Kenya Open. It is going to be a busy and exciting year for the young professional, as he continues to progress up the world rankings and put the Polish flag on the golfing map.

He tees it up at the Austrian Open on the European Tour next week, where the season gets underway after a two week break.

White Eagle Sport, a new multi-sport events company based in Dubai, are delighted to announce their partnership with European Tour player, Adrian Meronk. 

The talented Polish player will wear the White Eagle Sport logo on his right sleeve as he competes around the world this year on Europe’s main golfing stage.

Making their first foray into golf with the ‘The Greensomes Open’ in January, an event where the winning team walked away with the soon-to-be coveted Black Jackets, White Eagle Sport is going from strength to strength and will host some of the largest events in the UAE this year. 

“I am really proud to be representing White Eagle Sport”, said Meronk. “I played in their inaugural event in Dubai last month and I was so impressed by the setup of everything. They left no stone unturned in their preparation and I know their events are going to become ones that everybody wants to compete in. Best of luck to Marta and her team and thank you for believing in me”.

Marta Biswas, owner of White Eagle LLC, said, “Adrian Meronk is the first Ambassador that we have welcomed to our team. Our focus right now is on golf, however we will be gradually adding other sports as well. We want all amateur golfers that take part in our tournaments to feel like professionals and by having Adrian attend some of our events, it makes them feel special.”

As is widely known, Adrian is the best golfer to ever come out of Poland and upon winning the 2019 Open de Portugal, he wrote two more records in the history books, by becoming the first Pole to win a European Challenge Tour title and earn graduation to the European Tour. 

Having turned professional back in 2016, after reaching a career high 8th in the World Amateur Golf Rankings, Adrian has gone through each stage of golf in Europe at ease and looks to continue his progression up the world rankings and by doing so, increase the exposure of golf in Poland. 

His opening event on the 2021 European Tour will be at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters this week.

An incredible chip-in eagle on the seventeenth hole on Sunday, saw Brooks Koepka come from five shots behind at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, to win by one shot and claim his eighth PGA Tour Title. 

After a calm front nine from Brooks that included a bogey and an eagle, he started his charge on the back nine with three birdies in a row, beginning at the par-five thirteenth.

Another birdie at fifteen moved him into a tie for the lead at seventeen under par. 

A safe 305 yard tee shot on his penultimate hole, ended on the left side of the green, well away from the water. He stood up to his twenty nine yard chip shot, bounced it into the apron of the green and it rolled into the middle of the cup, resulting in a roar from the small gallery of fans that were allowed on the course. 

Par on eighteen sealed victory for the four-time major winner and with the final round of sixty five, he added another Waste Management Phoenix Open title to his ever growing resume. 

“I felt like I have been playing really well”, Koepka said. “I loved the way I have been playing, even though I was missing cuts. It came down to scoring. I felt like I was playing well all week and knocking on the door and today I just stayed patient”.

“It’s been a wild ride for the last year and a half and very frustrating”, said Brooks. “I’ve had moments where I didn’t know if I was going to be the same, if I could even come back”.

Well Brooks, you looked as great as ever and we are incredibly proud of how you have overcome obstacles this last year!   

Special mention must also go to Scottie Scheffler, who finished tied seventh on sixteen under par, having been at the business end of the leaderboard for the whole tournament. 

Dustin Johnson battled to a final round 68 at Royal Greens Golf and Country Club, to secure his second title at the Saudi International, in just three years. 

The World Number One started his Sunday off with a two shot lead and never left top spot, finishing two ahead of the chasing pack on fifteen under par. 

Opening up with three straight pars, he had a look at eagle on the par-five fourth, but took his birdie and signalled his intent to the field. 

A long run of pars followed and birdie opportunities knocked once again on the tenth and twelfth, but the putts didn’t fall until the par-four thirteenth, where Johnson held a nice putt for birdie to regain the lead on his own and from there in, he looked as solid as ever. 

He played his penultimate hole in model fashion, hitting a thumping drive down the fairway, leaving him with a little pitch and a tap-in birdie. 

Finding bunker off the final tee, Johnson hit his third shot to the middle of the green and took two putts to seal victory in Saudi. 

“I don’t get to play around the world as much as I’d like to but it’s definitely nice to get a win not on my tour and after Augusta, to get my first win again, obviously the game is still in really good form and I’m really excited about the rest of the year”, said Dustin. 

This was Johnson’s ninth European Tour victory and extends his advantage at the top of the Official World Golf Rankings. 

Well done, Dustin – the dominance continues!

Having claimed his maiden European Tour victory in dramatic fashion at the 2020 Joburg Open, JB will continue to compete on the European Tour this season and looks to continue his rise up the world rankings. Following on from his win in South Africa, the Dane went on to finish 44th on the Race to Dubai rankings.

The Internationals entered the final round singles matches at the 2019 Presidents Cup, with a 10-8 advantage over Team USA. However, the Americans turned it around when they needed to and clinched the title.

Tiger Woods went out first and set the tone for the day, by defeating Abraham Ancer, 3&2.

DJ was drawn against Haotong Li in the Sunday singles and took the early lead by winning the 3rd, 4th and 5th holes.

He never led by fewer than three holes after that. Another par earned him a win on the seventh hole.

Johnson was 5 up after 11 holes and while Li won the 12th and 14th, it was never close.

The match ended with Johnson’s birdie on the 15th hole.

“I played really well today. I hit the ball great,” Johnson said. “obviously he struggled just a little bit. I definitely put lot of pressure on him because I hit some great shots today.”

On Day 3, the Americans claimed back some vital matches, to head into the final day behind by just 2 points.

Johnson and partner Gary Woodland, defeated Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen, 2&1, to get their point on the board.

This is where Johnson gained his first point of the week to improve to 1-2-0 record for the week and 9-6-2 in his Presidents Cup career.

Congratulations to Dustin and Team USA on their victory!
