Golf Bucks County

Middletown Country Club

Middletown is a compact 80 acres of challenging golf, with rolling hills and large specimen trees that have watched many golfers travel its fairways over time. It has retained its old time feel with tees and greens in close proximity, allowing golfers to walk the course if they choose.

Benvenuto cashes LPGA check

Written by Bob Oliver

It has taken a long, long time, but with perseverance and dedication and a little luck Neshaminy graduate Brittany Benvenuto has cashed a check for her work on the LPGA Tour.

We remember Benvenuto qualified for the 2017 LPGA Tour, but injuries allowed her just one start, a missed cut.

Playing 2018 on a medical exemption, she played her first event of the season in the greater Phoenix area in the LPGA Bank of Hope Founders Cup.  Inbee Park claimed top honors, but Benvenuto made the 36 hole cut and finished with rounds of 70-71-75-75 for a 3-over-par 291 total and a check for $2,965. 

The stats show Brenvenuto had driving accuracy of 77%, greens in regulation of 68%. She finished in 72nd place. 

But the important thing is she got over the cut hump, earning her first weekend rounds.

 NOTE: Benvenuto is 12th alternate into this week's Kia Classic so most likely will not be competing.

Inkster dissed, remains positive

Written by Bob Oliver
There are some things that are not explainable, are nonsensical and just plain dumb.
Juli Inkster has long been a fan favorite, and a favorite of this publication. Always willing to provide insightful information at an event, always fan friendly, always the Hall of Fame member that she is. 
Why then do businesses treat the family woman with superb credentials like a mini-tour nobody? These days Inkster still has game, but she does not have a sponsor. Seriously.
She's won more than $14-million in her career, scoring 31 LPGA victories including seven major championships.  She captained a pair of US Solheim Cup teams to victory. She has nary a blemish on her personal record yet not one sponsor has added their emblem to her golf bag. 
Juli Inkster will be in the ara in June at the Shoprite LPGA Championship presented by Acer. Hopefully there will be some sponsorships supporting her.
