Did you know?

One might expect Brisbane Golf Club to have been granted a "Royal" prefix, especially as Royal Queensland Golf Club (also located in Brisbane) was founded in 1920, some 23 years after Brisbane GC. Apparently, in 1900, when Brisbane GC suggested the possibility of Royal status, the then Colonial Secretary of Queensland refused to recommend the granting of the "Royal" prefix on the basis that the club was not a national or charitable association.

Who's Who:
Bernhard Langer: at age 64, Langer collected a record sixth Charles Schwab Cup, the only player to have won the season-long points chase more than twice. He also topped the PGA Tour Champions money-list for the 11th time out of a possible 13 since 2008.

Carlota Ciganda: the five-time Solheim Cup star was delighted to record a fourth Ladies European Tour win in her home national championship, the Ladies Spanish Open.

Lee Elder: Trailblazer, Ryder Cup player, four-time PGA Tour winner and eight-time Senior PGA Tour winner, Lee Elder died on November 28, aged 87. In 1975 he became the first African American golfer to play in the Masters tournament, and in so doing provided one of the pivotal moments in the history of professional golf.
