  • Ryder Cup victory not the end, just the beginning

    CHASKA, Minn. – It would be easy to confuse Sunday’s celebration for a coronation, an exhale moment after two years of vague promises and lofty expectations.

    If the U.S. team wanted to gloat they’d come by it honestly, they’d just rolled over the Europeans, 17-11, for America’s first victory in the biennial event since 2008.

  • Ryder Cup: Will the force be with the U.S.?

    CHASKA, Minn. – If you think this week’s buildup to the Ryder Cup has been insufferable – with player-on-past-captain crime and a European team member’s brother penning a satirical column – then perhaps you’ve forgotten about the past two years.

  • Sec. Piñol, defense chief Lorenzana to hit ceremonial drives in PAL Interclub

    Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel 'Manny' Piñol will hit the ceremonial drive to kick off the 70th edition of the Philippine Airlines (PAL) Interclub team golf championship starting Feb. 22 to 25 at Rancho Palos Verdes Golf and Country Club and Apo Golf and Country Club in Davao City.

    A former campaigner in the event while he was still a sportswriter and later on Mayor of M’Lang and Governor of North Cotabato, Piñol will be right at home in opening the Senior's division hostilities which Canlubang will try to win for the second straight year.

  • Sergio Garcia gets his major on an unforgettable Sunday at the Masters

    It did not look like Garcia would ever win a major, and certainly not the Masters. But there he was at Augusta National, closing the final five holes with nothing but perfect swings.

    Sergio Garcia had to take a pee.

    With his Masters on life support and the headline of another blown Sunday lead at the majors already written, the Spaniard detoured off the 14th fairway to relieve himself. He ducked under the rope line, walked through the pines, and disappeared.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. -- Jordan Spieth played his final official round of golf for 2016 on Dec. 4, the last day of the Hero World Challenge. He had competed in 50 rounds since that fateful Sunday at Augusta National, when he rinsed two shots into Rae's Creek on the 12th hole and ultimately lost the Masters.

  • SW, CCC renew rivalry at PAL Ladies Interclub

    Manila Southwoods-Masters and Cebu Country Club renew their rivalry Tuesday at the start of the 11th Philippine Airlines (PAL) Ladies Interclub golf team championship at the Camp John Hay Golf Club in Baguio City.

  • Tiger Woods says back is 'progressing,' won't commit to return date

    RIDGEDALE, Mo. -- In front of a large crowd gathered for his latest course design announcement, Tiger Woods took two swings into a par-3 hole and remained noncommittal about his return to competitive golf.

    "The back is progressing," he said. "I have good days and bad days. I've had three back operations and that's just kind of the nature of the business, unfortunately. That's all I can say."
