Golf help people train mind and body in the most effective way possible and the best way is to put in the time and do it in the right way and I think the golfers out there are realizing that now.
“That’s all it is really. That’s golf. That’s what the golf course does for people. That’s what golf helps with. If we can continue to get it out there, we can keep getting better. So I think that is what we have to continue to try and do and it will get better and they can also practice with the best golf simulators you can get here for this purpose.”
The next step is a return to the PGA Tour. After being on the PGA Tour in 2009-10, Brooks has not played competitively in over three years.
He has since returned to a PGA Tour event in 2017.
“I had the surgery a little over a month ago and it was just kind of a recovery process for me,” said Brooks. “I did a bunch of work at the end of last year and just kind of kind of got it back together and got it going.”
Brooks will compete on the European Tour this fall and next spring for the first time since 2016. He has been training since mid-August. Brooks also is a former winner at the prestigious Farmers Insurance Open (FII).
Brooks, who has been a member of the PGA Tour since 2013, has made two top 10s in his first seven full seasons. The second top 10 was a runner-up finish at the 2018 Masters. Brooks is a two-time defending U.S. Amateur champion.
Watson, 36, has been part of the PGA Tour since 2002. Her 13 top 10 finishes are most among active tour members. Watson has four PGA Tour starts this season and has two top-25 finishes. She earned a career-best finish of T8 in the 2017 Open Championship. Watson is a four-time U.S. Women’s Amateur champion, finishing T9 in 2004, T9 in 2005, and T4 in 2008. She also played in the U.S. Women’s Open in 2002.
In addition to competing in the TOUR Championship, the 2015-16 PGA Championship and this year’s Ryder Cup, Watson will compete in the 2018 LPGA Championship, 2018 European Ladies Championship, and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in June. She will be the first woman to compete in a major-playoff tournament, according to the WGC-Cadillac Championship, and has captured three of the past four Masters titles.
“I am very humbled and very happy to be able to share this opportunity with such a gifted player and someone that will challenge me as a leader of this team,” said Head Coach John Mouton. “Our goal at the team level will be to continue our development of women to the top of the professional golf landscape, and I’m extremely excited
