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.
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.
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.
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.
Gene Sison of The Turf Company fired a 72 gross score to win Lowest Gross and overall Champion, while Dino Datu trailed with a net 68 to win Low Net at the 3rd Plaridel Cup golf tournament held August 4 at Wack Wack Golf and Country Club in Mandaluyong City.
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.
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.
The SW-Masters squad is gunning for a record sixth straight title against a team it beat by an average of 2.5 points in the last two years.
MIGUEL Tabuena hopes to cash in on his impressive run of form at Luisita as he joins the elite international cast clashing in the $60,000 ICTSI Luisita Championship beginning tomorrow (Wednesday) at the Luisita Golf and Country Club.
The 22-year-old shotmaker swept two events at the Tarlac layout in 2015, running away with the Central Azucarera de Tarlac Open then besting a tough field to rule the rain-shortened Philippine Open. He, however, campaigned abroad and missed Luisita’s two-event hosting last year.
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."
Tiger Woods is ready to design a public golf course and, according to a tweet on Wednesday, he'll be making an announcement about it next week.
Golfers rarely fully retire and make an announcement saying they’re done. A bad back and a demanding golf world may not allow Tiger Woods that luxury.
There aren’t teary-eyed retirement press conferences in golf. It’s rare to just completely stop playing any competitive events. There’s no Elway “I can't do it any more” or Favre-ian back-and-forth declarations because you never really have to provide that kind of full-stop clarity to the masses. That clarity may often never come to the player himself, either.
