Back 9 Report: Setting the stage for the PGA Tour playoffs and Solheim Cup

On this week's Back 9 Report, hosts Fred Altvater and Carlos Torres talk through the golf headlines and get ready for the 2017 Solheim Cup.

This week in the Back Spin, the guys recap Justin Thomas' convincing win at the PGA Championship on a very difficult Quail Hollow golf course. Canadian Ben Silverman won the Tour event, and Sophia Schubert won the U.S. Women's Amateur last week in San Diego.

Tiger Woods was back in the Par 5 News this week, along with Ladies European Tour searching for a new CEO, Mark Rolfing and his wife receive a big award from PGA, 4ore Golf opens first facility in Texas. Kyle Miller, stricken with cerebral palsy at birth, competes in MacKenzie Tour event.

On the Practice Range they preview the 15th Solheim Cup that will be held this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Des Moines Country Club. Both teams have familiar names, as well as, rookies. Who will step up and be a factor? Can the European team continue to be a problem for the American team?
