One of the worst things about professional golf is that tournaments have long had the potential to be completely derailed by armchair rules officials. Such was the case earlier this year when a TV viewer emailed the LPGA’s fan feedback address to tattle on Lexi Thompson for misplacing her ball by an inch at most. The…
We can probably rule out Tiger Woods winning this weekend’s Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. He was right in it after two rounds, but a Saturday 75 dropped him well back of the lead, and Rickie Fowler has spent Sunday birdying literally all the damn holes, so Tiger is out of it.
After 301 days, Tiger Woods is once again playing golf. The 41-year-old was -1 after the first four holes of today’s Hero World Challenge, and his tee shots looked good. Surely, Tiger is back, for real this time, no, seriously, his body will hold up, for sure.
Tiger Woods played in a foursome Saturday at Trump National Golf Club in Jupiter, Florida, with current world number one Dustin Johnson, idiot President Donald Trump, and Brad Faxon, a PGA Tour Champions player and Fox Sports golf analyst. These casual rounds have taken on real meaning as Tiger gears up for his first…
“Golf is a good walk spoiled,” a famous man once said, speaking to the author of A Book of Quotes. Would it not, in our modern world, be more accurate to say, pithily, “Fuck golf—golfing ass motherfuckers?”
After coming in first place in a state divisional golf tournament, 16-year-old Emily Nash has been barred from receiving her trophy or advancing to the state tournament because she is a girl.
Two days ago, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tweeted the following:
The Presidents Cup, a golf tournament started by the PGA Tour in 1994 and won by the United States this weekend for the seventh time in a row, somehow necessitated the appearance of President Trump on Sunday. After the U.S. victory, Trump took the shiny trophy, and dedicated it to Americans in Texas, Florida, and…
Hideki Matsuyama walked onto the tee box at the par-four 15th at the BMW Championship today on a nice little run, having birdied each of the last three holes to pull fiver under on the tournament and three under on the day. Perhaps charged by this run of success, Matsuyama got into his tee shot and blasted it a very…
After a bizarre, court-ordered ban from golf, a preteen golf prodigy in suburban Washington, D.C., has returned to the sport, and has picked up right where she left off.
Yesterday, during the third round at TPC Boston, Sergio Garcia lined up an eagle putt on the par-four fourth hole, and just blew it. His putt wound up a good 13 feet from the hole, far enough away that Garcia was really, really pissed. So pissed, in fact, that he smashed the absolute bejeezus out of his putter,…
Tiger Woods had Vicodin, Dilaudid, Xanax, Ambien and THC in his system when arrested on suspicion of DUI on May 29, according to a toxicology report obtained by ESPN.

Today was the first round of the PGA Championship, hosted this year at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. It’s been an eventful one, to say the least, for John Daly.
The PGA Championship begins today, and it will be a memorable one for one course marshal. A tee shot on the 16th from Brooks Koepka, the reigning U.S. Open champion, went into the gallery and hit a course marshal. Video feeds saw the man on the ground and bloodied.
As children, generally, we receive plenty of chances to make jokes about Uranus. Science class! Planetarium field trip! Literally any time any one says anything about the solar system! As an adult? Not so much. If you are the type of adult who enjoys making Uranus jokes and you have the good fortune to stumble upon an…
The PGA Championship has been played in August every year save one since 1971, but this week’s Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte will be the next to last: Beginning in 2019, it’ll permanently move to May and become the year’s second major.
Today Steph Curry is competing at the Ellie Mae Classic on the Web.com Tour, and, my friends, I have some dispiriting news: Steph appears to be balling.
