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.

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.
Davao—With the 2018 Asian Games gold medalist Yuka Saso leading defending champion Pradera Verde, the Lubao, Pampanga-based squad is seen as the odds-on favorite to repeat as winners of the Philippine Airlines Ladies Interclub starting Sept. 19 in Davao City.
Aside from Saso, Pradera Verde will be backstopped three other Malaysian age-groupers going all out to extend the team’s streak in the tournament slated at the Rancho Palos Verdes Golf and Country Club.

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.

After scoring a maiden victory in record fashion on the Philippine Golf Tour at Pueblo de Oro, Korean Kim Joo Hyung goes for another first—a PGT Asia diadem in the $100,000 ICTSI Forest Hills Championship beginning tomorrow (Wednesday, July 11) in Antipolo.
While he said he feels good about nailing his first win and becoming the youngest winner on the local circuit, the 16-year-old shotmaker has opted to downplay his chances for another title crack against a tougher field on a tougher Forest Hills Golf and Country Club’s Nicklaus course.
Silang, Cavite—Michael Bibat flashed a near-impeccable iron game and putting and tamed Langer’s tough backside with a 32, leading to a five-under 66 and a two-stroke edge over Englishman Grant Jackson and three other local aces at the start of the ICTSI Riviera Classic here yesterday.
Orlan Sumcad recovered from a horrid second round stint with a three-under 69 yesterday, banking on a near-impeccable long game and bucking tough pin placements to force a tie with Jobim Carlos in the P3 million ICTSI Villamor Philippine Masters heading to another thriller of a finish at the Villamor Golf Club.

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.

While majority of the starting 100-player field struggled on the soggy fairways of the Legends course that played longer than its 6543 yardage and its softened, unreceptive greens, Wirairungreung and Hou, who shot a 67, romped off with the day’s two bogey-free rounds as they seized the 1-2 posts in the $75,000 event sponsored by ICTSI and organized by Pilipinas Golf Tournaments, Inc.
