  • Unsurprisingly, Social Media Shines Light on Masters Winner Patrick Reed's Chequered Past

    Patrick Reed is not the most popular guy. He's no people's champion, either. Reed could win 10 majors during his career and never come close to being as loved as Arnold Palmer or Phil Mickelson. To those who have followed the sport over the last five years, Reed's past transgressions aren't news. Back in 2015, golf writer Shane Ryan published an excerpt from his book Slaying the Tiger: A Year Inside the Ropes on the New PGA Tour. In it, Ryan alleged that Reed cheated during a college golf team event. There were also accusations that Reed had stolen possessions...

    The two will tee off in the final pairing on Sunday with Reed, a 27-year-old from Texas, ahead by three strokes...... AUGUSTA, Ga.—One of the most memorable duels in recent golf history is set for a rematch on Sunday. Only this time, instead of going head-to-head at the Ryder Cup, Patrick Reed and Rory McIlroy will be in the final pairing on the final day of the Masters. Less than two years after beating his European rival in a thrilling singles match to lead the U.S. to victory at Hazeltine, Reed will attempt to hold off McIlroy and a handful...

    (snip) -- Tony Finau said his opening round 68 was a “miracle” given the pain from a nasty injury …….. during the par-3 contest. But just getting here was an improbable, inspiring story. Tony Finau turned down the one invite every golfer, from the best pros to high handicap scrubs, covets the most. He took a pass on playing Augusta National. “I’ve had opportunities to play Augusta, whether it be from a caddie, a member, to go watch as a kid,” he told me. “I’ve had opportunities to step foot on the grounds and play Augusta and watch the Masters....

    Spieth credits much of his success to his sister, Ellie, seven years his junior. She has a neurological disorder that puts her on the autism spectrum and she inspired her brother to set up the Jordan Spieth Family Foundation, which raises money for young people with special needs, military families, and junior golf. "Being Ellie's brother humbles me every day of my life," he says.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. – Coming into Sunday at the Masters, Jordan Spieth held a four-shot lead, and that was enough to ensure that this day would see a memorable story, one either of triumph at a young age or of gut-punch collapse. What's more, Spieth became just the fifth player – and first since 1976 – to lead the tournament wire-to-wire, something not even Tiger has managed to do in his four Masters victories.

    DEVELOPING: Jordan Spieth set a 36-hole scoring record at the Masters on Friday. The 21-year-old Texan turned in another dazzling round, going to the weekend with a 14-under 130 total. That broke the record of 131, set by Raymond Floyd in 1976. Spieth shot a 6-under 66 in the second round, essentially blowing away everyone in the field except Charley Hoffman. He was four strokes behind and still on the course, turning in the sort of performance that would normally be good enough for the lead. Not the way Spieth was playing. He had 15 birdies and only one bogey...

Woods is a four-time winner at Augusta National and is looking to claim his 15th career major title, and first since 2008.

Woods, who is now world 111, has been working on his game since carding a career-worst score of 82 at the Phoenix Open, before injury saw him withdraw from the Farmers Insurance Open.

    Golf’s most famous pine tree is no longer guarding the 17th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. The Eisenhower Tree suffered major damage in an ice storm and was removed over the weekend, the club confirmed Sunday. Photos showed major limb damage, particularly on the left side and top of the tree. “The loss of the Eisen­hower Tree is difficult news to accept,” Augusta National and Masters Chairman Billy Payne said in a prepared statement. “We obtained opinions from the best arborists available and, unfortunately, were advised that no recovery was possible.” The Masters landmark, also known as Ike’s Tree,...

    Georgia Institute of Technology has announced a partnership with Udacity to offer an online Masters Degree in Computer Science for $7,000, down 80% from the existing cost of $40,000 for the on-campus, instructor led program. Suddenly, masters programs around the country will have to compete with Georgia Tech‘s $7,000 program, and that won’t be easy or fast in coming. The traditionally taught graduate degree in computer science at Georgia Tech is a very well regarded program that is in high demand and has very positive outcomes in terms of jobs and earnings. Georgia Tech graduates tend to do very well...

    I’m a huge Tiger Woods fan. That’s why it pains me that he continues to do damage to his once-nearly-pristine image. Having recently reclaimed his sport’s ranking as World No. 1 – as the Euros put it – Tiger flew this week to Augusta, Georgia as the favorite to win the Masters. He acquitted himself rather well the tourney’s first two days, save for a mishap yesterday on the 15th hole. He hit an approach shot to the green that, as bad luck would have it, ricocheted off the flag pole and careened into the creek. After taking a “drop”...

But he began his third round five strokes behind the leader Jason Day after being assessed a two-stroke penalty on Saturday for an illegal drop on the 15th hole of the second round.

    Did Tiger Woods' actions after he drenched his third shot on No. 15 Friday at Augusta result in him signing an incorrect scorecard, which would result in his automatic disqualification from the Masters? There was no definitive answer and a lot of speculation late Friday. So, while a conclusion has yet to be reached, let's walk through the events in question. After his round Woods said about his shot into the water on No. 15: "I went down to the drop area, that wasn't going to be a good spot, because obviously it's into the grain and it was a...
