It was a major blow to Trump National Doral and the Miami community when the PGA Tour moved its annual tour stop—played at Doral's Blue Monster course for 46 consecutive years from 1962 through 2014—to Mexico City a few years ago. The WGC-Mexico Championship is signed on through the next 10 years, but the PGA Tour has agreed to take one of its sanctioned events back to Doral. PGA Tour Latinoamerica announced on Wednesday that it is bringing its Tour Championship to Doral, though it will be contested at the Golden Palm course, not the famous Blue Monster course.

It’s about the other side of the Korean passion that runs so deep in women’s golf and that makes female players feel like rock stars. Chun, 24, burst onto the world stage when she was 20, winning the U.S. Women’s Open before she was even an LPGA member. When she won the Evian Championship two years later, she joined Korean icon Se Ri Pak as the only players to win major championships as their first two LPGA titles.

Robots have been plotting their takeover of the golf world for some time.
First it was talking trash to Rory McIlroy, then it was making a hole-in-one at TPC Scottsdale's famous 16th hole ... and now they're making putts for Tiger Woods.

Seven years ago, former European Tour player D.J. Russell was summoned to the Isle of Islay, the southernmost island in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides chain, to iron out some of the kinks at The Machrie, the famously quirky 1891 Willie Campbell links that used to have a dozen or more blind shots. … We gained so much comfort with every step we made and realized that we could create something extremely special.” Design changes to a few holes turned into a total reinvention of the links, which reopened in 2017. Like the links itself, the hotel is a reinvention of the dilapidated structure that used to exist on the same site. All told, this ranks as the biggest comeback in Scottish golf since Paul Lawrie rallied from 10 shots back to win the 1999 British Open at Carnoustie.

Tiger Woods confirmed what anyone who watched last month's Ryder Cup debacle could easily see: the 14-time major champion was low on energy during the U.S.' 17.5-10.5 loss to Europe, during which Woods himself went 0-4. "It was just a cumulative effect of the entire season," Woods said during a Q&A session at the Tiger Woods Invitational, an elite amateur event he hosts on the Monterey Peninsula. The week before the Ryder Cup, Woods, 42, won his first even in five years at the Tour Championship.

Jason Dufner makes Ben Stein seem like Jonathan Winters. Dufner often looks mighty miserable for someone who plays golf for a living.
But not on Friday at the CJ Cup!
Dufner made a 20-footer for birdie at the 16th hole and “celebrated” with one-two-three

Johnny Miller and Jim Nantz never worked together in a TV booth, but their first encounter came at a golf tournament decades ago. Johnny just never knew it. Appearing on the KNBR Murph & Mac Podcast on Wednesday, Nantz told a fantastic — and random — tale about coming into contact with Miller at a Houston Open while Nantz was on the golf team at the University of Houston.

A season that began with plenty of promise after a victory at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in March, took an all-too-familiar turn for Michelle Wie. Hampered once again by injury—this time what was finally diagnosed as an avulsion fracture, bone spurs and nerve entrapment in her right hand—the former U.S. Women’s Open champion found herself sitting out several tournaments in 2018 in hopes that time was all she needed to get healthy.

One of my favorite drills teaches you how to use wrist action to produce good bunker shots. Wrist action is so important for quality bunker shots—it helps get the ball out every time by keeping the clubface open and allowing the club to skim through the sand. This drill is great for wrist action, and it improves your swing's tempo, so it's not too fast or slow.

Swedish professional Johan Moberg expertly wielded his niblick, mashie and other pre-1936 wooden golf clubs through the blustery Scottish weather to become the World Hickory golf champion. Dressed in a bow tie, flatcap and with traditional plus four golfing trousers, Moberg edged out more than 120 amateurs and professionals to land the title which celebrates the sport's heritage. Hickory clubs are notoriously unforgiving and hitting the ball long distances is tricky.

Aditi Ashok is the only Indian player on the prestigious US-based LPGA Tour and the biggest name in Indian women's golf. Just 20 years old, insiders say that Aditi has the talent to inspire a generation of women golfers in India, much like former world number one Feng Shanshan in China. Aditi is used to expectations -- she represented India at the Rio 2016 Olympics when she was only 18.
