He is the only two-time winner on the PGA Tour this season. He has been No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings the past six weeks. And when he sees the No. 544 player in the world Thursday morning on the first tee of the Honda Classic, these could be his first words. "Hi, I'm Patton Kizzire." Kizzire can't recall meeting Tiger Woods except in passing. That would have been last year at Torrey Pines, the only time they were in the field. The 31-year-old from Alabama, who is the image of southern comfort with his polite demeanor, is the latest to experience the hype surrounding Woods in his return from a fourth back surgery. "First time," he said Wednesday. "It's something I've looked forward to as a

Feb. 20, 2018 THE FLATS - With the Web.com Tour off for two more weeks and only three former Georgia Tech players in the field at the Genesis Open, it was a light weekend for the Yellow Jackets on the PGA Tour … Matt Kuchar tied for 26th place at Riviera, while Larry Mize tied for 54th at the Chubb Classic on the Champions Tour … this and more in this week’s Georgia Tech #ProJackets Report. Kuchar made the cut on the number, then shot a pair of 69s on the weekend to finish 10 shots behind champion Bubba Watson. He remains 84th in FedEx Cup points as the Tour heads to his home state of Florida this week. Ollie Schniederjans (by one stroke) and Cameron Tringale missed the cut. After taking the

In five starts this season Jordan Spieth ranks 161st in strokes gained: putting and has admitted he's going through a "slump" on the greens. The short answer is that worst of Spieth's putting slump is probably over, but don't be surprised to see the effects linger for some time yet. In case you haven't noticed, Jordan Spieth is a very above average putter: 60th, 20th, 9th, 2nd, and 42nd in SGP between 2013 and 2017, with a career average of 0.277.

Cricket legend Kevin Pietersen posted a screen-grab video of Kevin Na taking an inordinate amount of time over a par putt during Sunday's final round of the Genesis Open. Well, an inordinate amount of time for the average golfer. For the notoriously

First, commissioner Rob Manfred & co. made some reasonable, minor changes to pace of play this week, limiting mound visits per game to six without a pitching change and shortening the time in between innings. Anybody remember the 2016 NBA Finals, when Draymond Green was suspended for Game 5 and sat on the bench the entire game?

Hitting a golf ball on a basketball court straight into a tiny hole is tough enough. How about hitting a golf ball down a long hill on what appears to be carpeting at a convention? Sounds way harder, but not for Paul Shadle. While attending the Minnesota Golf Show, he sent a 120-footer down a hill and into the hole, winning himself a boat worth $75,000 and $25,000 in cash. Just how tough was it to nail that one? It's never been done in 28 YEARS!!! From WCCO: Five bucks to charity gave you three tries at a hundred foot putt. Whoever made that - and there were 34 over the weekend - were invited back Sunday afternoon, where they then had to make a 50-footer. Only Paul did, which put all eyes on

Clemson entered Tuesday’s final round of the Puerto Rico Classic trailing 36-hole leader Georgia Tech by eight shots. But while the Yellow Jackets shot 13 over to slip to fourth, the Tigers carded the round of the day, an even-par 284, to finish at 2 over and edge runner-up Oklahoma by a shot. Freshman Turk Pettit led the way for the 16th-ranked Tigers, finishing solo second at 5 under, two shots back of Alabama’s Lee Hodges. Junior Doc Redman, who won the U.S. Amateur last summer, birdied his final two holes to shoot 1-under 70 and move into a share of 17th. Freshman Colby Patton, whose dad, Chris, won the 1989 U.S. Amateur, added a T-7 finish for Clemson, which has won this event in each of

Jordan Spieth is many things: a three-time major winner, an elite ball-striker, a tremendous putter, a winner of 11 PGA Tour events before the age of 25. Yet according to Rory McIlroy, despite all of Spieth's accomplishments, the youngster is actually underrated as a golfer. The quote caught my eye while I was reading this lengthy transcribed conversation between McIlroy and Padraig Harrington, moderated by Paul Kimmage. McIlroy said he was having dinner with fellow pro Brandt Snedeker recently, and it was Spieth who kept coming up. Here's the conversation snippet. Padraig Harrington: I think the young guys over here should be paying Jordan Spieth a retainer. He plays with all of his mates."

There is some politicking going on surrounding the removal of Oregon associate athletic director and head of Track Town USA Vin Lananna from his position as President of USATF. There are surface level reasons the move maybe makes sense, but it appears that there is at least poor transparency. Mario Cristobal has made the final hire for the football coaching staff with Alex Mirabal. Coach Mirabal comes to Oregon from Marshal, where he was offensive line coach. Marshall allowed the fourth fewest sacks in FBS last year. Men’s golf is in La Quinta, California and tied for 1st place with #1 ranked Oklahoma State after one round of golf.

Tiger Woods threw up during his third round at the Hero World Challenge, but refused to quit, posting a 3-under 69. "Not bad, I’m only 15 back," he joked after his best round of the tournament, which included six birdies but also some chunked chip shots.
