  • PGA Tour 2019: Pebble Beach Pro-Am Delayed By Weather (Phil Mickelson Leads by 3 Shots)

    Just when you thought the weather at this year's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am [2019] couldn't get any worse, it got worse. A lot worse, actually. Wind and rain on Saturday turned to hail and ice on Sunday on the Monterey Peninsula, and the final round of the tournament was suspended at 1:53 p.m. ET on Sunday. This followed an hour-long delay to start the day for more inclement weather. The photos and videos that emerged from the event were pretty wild, too. It's one thing to get hail. It's another to get it at a PGA Tour event. And it's...

    Phil Mickelson claimed a thrilling play-off win over Tiger Woods in their controversial winner-takes-all $9million match at Shadow Creek in Las Vegas on Friday night. The victory came after 22 holes of finely balanced play between two of golf's greatest players and organisers even had to call on artificial lighting to ensure the game reached a conclusion in bitter cold conditions. Both players were miked up for the entire round, giving fans a rare insight into discussions between themselves and their caddies, but it was the unmistakable tones of Samuel L. Jackson introducing them that was the first sign of...

    PayPerView and FOX ^ | 11/23/18 | GRRRRR
    The two golf greats will meet Friday afternoon, with the broadcast starting at 2 p.m. EST. It is being shown on DirecTV and AT&T U-Verse and other cable and satellite outlets for $19.95. It can also be streamed on Turner’s B/R Live. The broadcast will feature both golfers mic'd up as well as microphones placed on their caddies (Joe LaCava for Woods and Tim Mickelson for his older brother). With the showdown on pay-per-view, there will be no commercial breaks and plenty of opportunities to hear both golfers try to one-up each other with (gentlemanly) trash talk and verbal jabs.

    Can you spare a couple of ultra-rich golfers twenty bucks? Well, it’s actually just $19.99 for the pay per view and neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson will get that sum directly; the cable companies and the agents and the lawyers will get paid first, of course. It’s officially dubbed “The Match” – actually it’s “Capitol One’s The Match” because why not make it sound as much like a college football bowl game as possible? Mostly, though, it is a confusing event, something that sounded great in theory, still could be fun, but is more likely being marketed into a...

    PGA RULE CHANGES IN EFFECT 1/1/2019 FOR GOLFERS AGE 65+ Rule 9.k.34(a) - If a tree is between the ball and the hole, and the tree is deemed to be younger than the player, then the ball can be moved without penalty. This is so because this is simply a question of timing; when the player was younger, the tree was not there so the player is being penalized because of his age. Rule 1.a.5 - A ball sliced or hooked into the rough shall be lifted and placed on the fairway at a point equal to the distance it...

    This book was written to fill a gap we believe exists in golf instruction. It comes not from golf pros that have spent a lifetime learning and studying the golf swing and how to teach it. Rather, it comes from the viewpoint of amateur golfers who have struggled all of their lives to not only learn how to swing a golf club correctly, but to also lower their scores. In that quest, a common and chronic problem has arisen for all of us—the round-wrecker shots we all seem to hit when the pressure is on: either because of the anxiety...
  • Famous 15-foot gator named 'Chubbs' returns to Florida golf course

    10/16/2018 3:20:43 PM PDT · by ETL · 35 replies ^ | Oct 16, 2018 | Jennifer Earl
    A famous "giant" alligator nicknamed "Chubbs" got ready for another round of golf over the weekend. The nearly 15-foot gator went viral in 2016 after casually strolling across the grass at Buffalo Creek Golf Course in Palmetto, Florida, as shocked golfers stared. Afterward, Sarasota resident Charles Helms shared a short clip of the "monstrous" creature on social media — and the "dinosaur" instantly became a social media celebrity. “This alligator was so large he would only move slowly about 100 feet at a time before having to lie down and rest so he probably wasn’t in as much danger as it may have appeared. An alligator...

    Tiger Woods's Ryder Cup record went from bad to worse when he lost two more matches on Saturday, extinguishing a theory that a warmer, cuddlier, middle-aged cat would finally shine in the team format. The second most prolific major champion of all time now has nine wins, 19 losses and one halved match in Ryder Cup fourball and foursomes. He has lost seven consecutive times in the team format, a dreadful record that defies easy explanation, not that people will shy away from trying.

    Not everyone can stay up through the night to watch every minute of the Ryder Cup action. That's why we're here. Unfortunately (for American fans), the Europeans' momentum built from a 4-0 sweep of Friday afternoon foursomes continued into the Saturday morning fourball session. Europe got a bunch of blue on the board early and controlled three of the four matches for virtually the entire morning, ultimately winning the session 3-1 to take a commanding 8-4 lead heading into Saturday afternoon foursomes.

    Tiger Woods has staged one of the greatest comebacks from injury and controversy in sport by winning his first PGA tournament in five years. The former World Number One roared to victory at the FedEx Tour Championships in Georgia on Sunday night in front of thousands of fans. A huge crowd ran up the fairway and swamped the 18th green in frantic scenes in a bid to watch Woods sink the last putt of his round, and end his title drought. Woods, who has battled back from a crippling back injury and dealt with the backlash from a DUI arrest,...

    ATLANTA — A comeback not even Tiger Woods saw coming a year ago. A chaotic celebration that golf hasn’t seen even in the best of times. Woods delivered the perfect ending to his amazing return from four back surgeries on Sunday with a performance that felt like old times. He left the competition feeling hopeless as he built a five-shot lead early and hung on to win the Tour Championship. Woods raised both arms over his head after he tapped in for par and a 1-over 71 for a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel, the 80th victory of his PGA...

    Five years and four back surgeries later, Tiger Woods is a winner on the PGA Tour once again. Woods shot a one-over par 71 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta to wrap up a two-shot victory over Billy Horschel at the season-ending Tour Championship. It is his 80th victory on the PGA Tour, but his first since the 2013 Bridgestone Invitational. Justin Rose, who finished in a tie for fourth place five shots behind Woods, managed enough points to wrap up the $10 million FedEx Cup, which the tour considers its biggest prize. But the day, the galleries and...

    A man was bitten by an alligator while playing disc golf at a Florida park Monday, authorities said. Richard Peel, 35, was playing disc golf at Cliff Stephens Park in Clearwater when the incident occurred. He was bitten after trying to retrieve his disc from a pond, Clearwater Fire Rescue officials said. Witnesses locked arms to pull Peel to safety, Derrick Moody, who lives near the park, told FOX 13 Tampa Bay. “I guess they ran over and formed a ladder with each other and they were able to pull him out,” Moody told the station. Peel was taken to...

Weird, per pooler @betsy_klein: “The President emerged from the White House and boarded the motorcade at 10:39 am. He is wearing a bright red polo and a white Make America Great Again hat. He got out of the SUV and appeared to walk back inside the residence at...

    For the clusters of onlookers, besuited power players and three former presidents who had all traveled to Washington National Cathedral, the muggy day was a historic opportunity to memorialize the life of Senator John McCain, who was remembered as a deeply patriotic war hero, a former Republican presidential candidate and a scrappy, humanly flawed, ultimately idealistic lawmaker. For President Trump, it was Saturday. In the many discussions about how to mark his life that Mr. McCain had with his staff and family before he died, he had made clear he did not want Mr. Trump to participate in anything they...
