Golf Channel Star Nikki B is testing the NEW Callaway Rogue ST clubs on the Haggin Oaks Driving Range!

The new Rogue ST clubs represent a breakthrough in precision and performance—but how do they perform in the hands of a pro like Nikki?

Congratulations to Morton Golf Foundation Alum, Austin Smotherman, on his 11th place finish at The Farmers Insurance Open.

Austin Smotherman hit 12 of 18 greens in regulation during his final round at the Farmers Insurance Open and had a good round of putting, with no misses on putts within 10 feet.

Smotherman finished his day tied for 11th at 12 under; Will Zalatoris and Luke List are tied for 1st at 15 under; Jason Day, Jon Rahm, and Cameron Tringale are tied for 3rd at 14 under; and Pat Perez, Joaquin Niemann, Aaron Rai, Justin Rose, and Sungjae Im are tied for 6th at 13 under.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peggy Dodds.

Peggy was a dear friend of the Morton family. From 1983 to the present day, she has devoted her time to running multiple junior golf events at the Sacramento City and County golf courses. She joined the Sacramento Golf Council in 1985 and was asked to reorganize the declining junior championships and now they remain some of the crown jewel events across Northern California and beyond.

She has spent countless hours volunteering to help with additional events including Little Linkers, The First Tee of Greater Sacramento Tour events, and other Golf Council events. Her tireless devotion to juniors has created multi-generations of parents and kids who have benefitted from the work that she has done.

The Morton Golf family and staff would like to offer our condolences.

We’ll miss you, Peggy.
