Sophomore sensation Canon Claycomb shot an 8-under-par 63 and senior 2016 state champ Eugene Hong fired a 65 as Circle Christian opened its bid for a state team title with a runaway victory at Monday’s Class 1A, District 11 boys golf tournament. Claycomb’s bogey-free round broke a school record of 65 he tied earlier this season. “I knew I could get the school record. That was a goal of mine since the beginning of the year.” Claycomb said. “It’s been a year for me where I’ve been meeting a lot of my goals and expectations.” Daniel Core’s 70 and a 72 by Evan Sun rounded out a 14-under 270 total for the Centurions that was 55 shots ahead of runner-up Lake Highland Prep at The Country Club at Deer

ROSLYN, N.Y. - The St. John's men's golf team hosted its Golf Classic for the second-consecutive year on Monday at the Engineers Country Club in Roslyn N.Y. to help raise funds for the men's golf team. Friends and alumni of the St. John's golf community, including St. John's Athletic Director Anton Goff, lined the course to participate in the event. Over 60 golfers took to the links to play 18 holes at the 12:30 p.m. event. "This is such an important event," Goff said. "Having the support of the local community, Engineers Country Club, as well as, alums and other people coming out to support the golf team is really important.

The 30-year-old Englishman, who split with coach Pete Cowen, became the first defending champion since Canadian Mike Weir in 2004 to miss the cut at Augusta this year. "At the end of 2016 I was in contention in the Race to Dubai and I just didn't want to play golf. It's utterly ridiculous," he wrote in a blog on the European Tour website (www.europeantour.com).

Did sportscaster Jimmy Roberts, who has achieved success and fame at ESPN and now at NBC Sports and Golf Channel, run afoul of the law early in his superstar career…right in front of former President George H.W. Bush? Roberts, who will cover the PGA Tour “President’s Cup” Matches in September at Liberty National Golf Club in the New York area revealed the answer. “I was with ESPN in 1997 and the U.S. Open was being conducted at Congressional Country Club just outside Washington D.C. It occurred to me that many Presidents of the United States had played there so I wanted to produce a feature on Presidential golf, Roberts explained. “With that in mind, I wrote a letter to former President Bush

South Korean Jin Young Ko overcame a sluggish start to clinch her first LPGA Tour victory at the KEB Hana Bank Championship on Sunday. Ko, who had been two strokes in front overnight, bogeyed two of the first three holes at the Ocean Course before carding six birdies for a 68 and an overall 19-under total of 269. ''After I made the two bogeys I had a really long chat with my caddie,'' Ko said.

Rickie Fowler had a busy off weekend. The former Oklahoma State Cowboy served as grand marshal for Homecoming at his alma mater in Stillwater as the Pokes thumped the Baylor Bears 59-16. Fowler participated in a pro-am at Karsten Creek, rode in the Homecoming parade and hit autographed balls into the crowd at Gallagher-Iba Arena on Friday evening (while Mike Gundy removed his shirt). Fowler is one of the more celebrated athletes in Oklahoma State history, and it was cool to see him return to his college home for a weekend and talk about how much the place meant to him. "When people see (Homecoming weekend), I think they understand a little more what Oklahoma State is," Fowler said. "The main

American Pat Perez won the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic, claiming a four-shot victory over compatriot Keegan Bradley on Sunday at TPC Kuala Lumpur. The 41-year-old only managed to make par on the back nine, but did enough to finish the tournament with a 24-under 264 to take home the $1.26 million prize purse and 500 FedEX Cup points. Perez's feat comes after a long recovery from a shoulder injury last year that threatened to derail his career.

4. DIFFERENT LOOK. K.J. Choi will not be alone in his unfamiliarity with Nine Bridges. In fact, even the PGA TOUR pro who grew up on Jeju Island doesn’t expect to recognize the place. Sung Kang, who was born in Jeju City, said the last time he played Nine Bridges was “15 years ago. I heard they fixed it a lot, redid it. I may remember a few holes.” Whee Kim said he played nine holes in 2007 while in national team training. Like Kang, he said the course has been updated, “added some bunkers and hazards around the greens. Could be different than what I remember.” While Kang may not recognize the course, he won’t be surprised if the weather is dicey this week. “Where the golf course is, it can be

Justin Thomas’ career may have rocketed into a new stratosphere in 2017, but he never will forget his first professional victory, which arrived in Malaysia in 2015 – just as David Lipsky, his fellow American, will not forget his. Lipsky’s first pro victory arrived at the Asian Tour’s Handa Faldo Cambodian Classic five years ago, with Nick Faldo, the six-time major champion, standing by and watching at the 18th green. It marked a nice jumping-off point for Lipsky, a former All-American from Northwestern who made the bold decision to carve his way in the pro game outside the more comfortable, closer-to-home paths so many American players choose. Lipsky won in his third Asian Tour start. “It was

Tiger Woods returned to golf with some sweet swings and some flubbed chips. Our roundtable on Tiger’s rust, Jordan Spieth’s amazing run and Keegan Bradley benching the belly putter.
Jordan Spieth annihilated the field at the Hero World Challenge for his second-straight win, while tournament host Tiger Woods found reasons to be pleased with his last-place finish in his first start since the PGA Championship, writes Cameron Morfit.
Three-time major winner Padraig Harrington won the Asian Tour's Indoneasian Open on Sunday, ending a four-year drought, according to The Guardian.
Staked to a seven-shot lead, Spieth blew away an elite field at Isleworth and set two tournaments records Sunday when he closed with a 6-under 66 for a 10-shot victory over Henrik Stenson.
Tiger Woods looked better each day at the Hero World Challenge, his first event since the PGA Championship, but short-game miscues left him in last place Sunday afternoon at even-par.
While her uncle Tiger was struggling through his first tournament in four months at the Hero World Challenge, Cheyenne Woods locked up her 2015 LPGA Tour Card.

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.
