Chances are you were too busy to pay attention to golf this weekend. Maybe you were travelling, maybe you spent quality time with family and friends, or maybe you were in the ER for 12 hours after Uncle Tommy blew off his thumb with some fireworks. Hell, maybe you actually played golf. It’s nice to dream, isn’t it?
Whatever the case, it’s totally understandable if you missed some of the comings and goings on Golf Twitter and beyond. If so, don’t worry, we’re here to help. There are just two things you need to know from the long weekend that was: Rickie Fowler won for the first time in 1,610 days and Rose Zhang is a wizard, ‘arry.

The first time you watch this you might miss it. It’s easy to get distracted by Pebble Beach’s iconic 7th hole. Zhang’s move is cocoa-butter smooth and she sticks to it six feet. There’s a lot going on. But watch it again and focus on her tee. WTFFFFF. Needless to say, the LPGA rookie phenom cannot miss right now.
So there you go, now you’ve seen the most viral golf moment of July 4th weekend. Now you’re up to speed with the rest of America. Well, almost. Zhang is the favorite heading into the U.S. Women’s Open at Pebble Beach at about 12/1. You might want to jump on that before the line moves, because the tournament hasn’t even started and she’s already getting all the bounces.
