For the 2nd year in a row, the 2019 Major Series of Putting was held at Legacy Golf Club in Las Vegas, NV. Hundreds of putters decend on Las Vegas for the championship belts and a big pay day. One of the first events of the week was the 2019 Stroke Play Championship. Last year, Aaron Crawford ran away with the belt and a huge cash prize. This year, a new winner was crowned but it was a familiar face. Taylor Montgomery, the 2017 Stroke Play Champion went wire to wire to take the belt and win the 2019 Championship.
There was a bit of twist this year at the MSOP. This year, putters from around the world could participate in qualifiers across the U.S. and Canada. Do well enough in these qualifiers, you will find yourself on the putting green against the best in the world. One putter, Matthieu Kinnis from Montreal QC, was a participant from the Montreal Qualifer and finished T-14 in his first showing at the 2019 Stroke Play Championship.
The Major Series of Putting is a great test for everyone who thinks they have what it takes with the flatstick. There are golf professionals, mini golf players and amatuer golfers on the same putting green at the same time. No other event in the world has that type of dynamic alongside the big cash prizes this event offers.
