A robot just pulled off the best possible move in the game of golf.
Today’s final round of the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines was delayed due to rain, but play resumed around 11:00 Pacific time. Despite this, Golf Channel is currently airing tape-delayed rain delay coverage. We can only assume the GC is borrowing from its NBCUniversal sibling’s Olympics bag of tricks, but golf…
Time’s Lorne Rubenstein has a fascinating, wide-ranging interview with Tiger Woods that is really worth your time. In it, Tiger talks on coming to grips with his lost abilities, his personal relationships, and his legacy. He’s surprisingly honest throughout, never more so than with this exchange:
The Hero World Challenge golf tournament is this this week, and it’s hosted by Tiger Woods—though Woods isn’t playing, as a series of injuries limited him to just 11 starts on tour this year, culminating in a pair of back surgeries early this fall. When will Woods be back? Will Woods be back? Speaking at the…

Steve Williams served as Tiger Woods’ caddy from 1999 to 2011, during which Woods dominated the PGA Tour, won 13 of his 14 Majors, and earned over $88 million.

Golfer and unique pants enthusiast John Daly suffered a collapsed lung during a tournament Saturday, and had to be hospitalized. The 49-year-old reportedly wasn’t breathing for almost three minutes. And yet, Daly showed up the next day to play while smoking cigarettes, because that’s just what John Daly does.
Hard-livin’, chain-smokin’ golfer John Daly played in a tournament in Mississippi this weekend, and his round on Saturday ended with him collapsing on the 18th tee and then being rushed to the hospital.
We have to resist the hype and hyperbole, because we’ve given in so many times before and been burned: but 2015 really does feel like the year golf moved beyond Tiger Woods.
On 5 yesterday, Bubba Watson’s ball came to rest against an anthill. That led to a genial discussion with a rules official over whether Watson was allowed to take a drop. The official classified the anthill as a “loose impediment”; Watson countered that ants, technically, are “burrowing animals.” Both have very…
Jason Day held off Jordan Spieth to win this weekend’s PGA Championship at Whistling Straits, seizing his first major after finishing three times as a runner-up—and doing it in record-setting fashion.
Minus the cameraman’s terrible angle, this is a pretty sweet putt by reigning Players Championship winner Rickie Fowler on the fourth hole at the Quicken Loans National. At 70 feet, it’s still 41 feet off Craig Barlow’s PGA record, but it’ll do.
There are keyboard warriors out there, like myself, who will write all these words about how golf is a classist and racist and sexist and bullshit sport and how actually fuck that it’s not even a sport and how the easiest way to tell if you’re in the presence of a Grade-A, grass-fed fuckboy is to ask if he owns Hush…
Robert Allenby got into a heated argument over club selection with his caddie Mick Middlemo just four holes into his first round at the RBC Canadian Open yesterday, culminating in screaming, cursing, and Middlemo being fired right there on the course, leading Allenby to pull a fan out of the gallery to carry his bag.
Zach Johnson claimed his second career major today at St. Andrews after dispatching Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman in a four-hole playoff to claim the Open Championship.
