In the cavalcade of esports that can and will continue until the inevitable heat death of the universe, some events can get overlooked. Amidst the hubbub of last weekend’s games, a Golden Tee world championship was held in Las Vegas, with winner Mark Stenmark of Houston, TX earning $10,000 and his likeness in next…
That this PGA listing uses the word “volunteer” so often makes it seem like they’re rubbing in the fact that they want suckers to pay to work 16 hours for free at the Women’s PGA Championship. Experience Olympia Fields Country Club in Illinois and get one of the (limited) food and water vouchers!
Some people require certain methods to get titillated. For this fan, it’s watching Billy Horschel at the Byron Nelson Classic.
Sergio Garcia became the eighth player ever to record a hole-in-one on the famed island green during today’s first round of the Players Championship:
Hard-livin’, chain-smokin’ John Daly claimed his first tournament title in 13 years after winning this weekend’s Champions event at The Woodlands, Tex. by one stroke.
George Coetzee eagled the 18th today at the China Open by ricocheting a shot into a once-in-a-lifetime situation—and taking the South African from one-over to one-under after the third round.
What’s wrong with this photo?
Grayson Murray, one of golf’s up-and-coming talents, has spent the past month pushing golfers to take a more active role in showing off their personalities online. On Wednesday, Murray shared a little too much of his.
One of the weakest things to happen in sports this year was Lexi Thompson losing an LPGA major because some asshole who was watching the tournament at home tattled on her for placing a ball no more than an inch away from where she had previously marked it.
In what would be the ideal alarmist story for a local news program to tease at the top of the show, McCain Foods announced a voluntary recall Friday for packages of frozen hash browns that “may be contaminated with extraneous golf ball materials.” A classic mixup.
The Tiger Woods comeback season lasted all of four months. In December, Woods announced that he was once again healthy enough to play golf and even played in a PGA event. Two months later, he had to withdraw from a tournament due to back spasms. Today, Woods announced that he just had back surgery and will not be…
At a press event today for a new public golf course in Ridgedale, Mo., a kid reporter challenged old and fucked up Tiger Woods to a “friendly” competition from the range. Woods, sounding like he was reading a cue card, said, “There’s nothing friendly about it.” He smiled. Chuckles all around.
“He’s pooping his pants,” one fan yelled as Sergio Garcia backed off a shot on 10. Garcia bogeyed 10, bogeyed 11, and, already down two strokes, bounced his drive off a tree and into the bushes on 13. Somewhere in that stretch, the same thought crossed the minds of every single person watching: He’s doing it again.
Sergio Garcia overcame choking an easy putt to win at 18 by beating Justin Rose in the first playoff hole to claim the Masters title and his first major championship after failing in his first 73 appearances.
Matt Kuchar aced Augusta National’s 16th today, elevating the PGA pro to third place at the Masters and completing the 11th hole-in-one on that hole in the past 14 years. His prize is some sunscreen.
Russell Henley got a nifty-looking hole-out with his approach shot on the par-four fifth hole during today’s fourth round of the Masters:
Phil Mickelson is the same guy on the golf course as off, meaning that he gambles no matter where he is. Wherever Phil lays his bets is his home.
It’s Masters Week, which means that it’s time again to school you in the strange ways of CBS announcer, burnt-toast enthusiast, and general glass-of-skim-milk-made-into-a-person Jim Nantz. Rick Maese of the Washington Post did an excellent deep dive on Nantz this week and it’s filled with all kinds of milquetoast…
Dustin Johnson, reigning U.S. Open champion and current No. 1-ranked golfer in the world, might have to miss this weekend’s tournament after he suffered a back injury at his rental home in Augusta, Ga.
It should’ve been a runaway victory for Lexi Thompson, and it would’ve been if not for one tattletale viewer and some truly unfair rules. Thompson had a significant lead in the final round of the ANA Inspiration, the first LPGA major of the year, when a viewer wrote in to alert officials to a violation the previous day…
