After Olympics, golf in Rio has its growing pains
(Wed, 23 Aug 2017 01:46:42 GMT)
While the volume of play hasn’t increased, the course itself remains playable with conditions some say are better than what the world’s best competed on a year ago.

How one brilliant idea transformed the U.S. Ryder Cup and Solheim Cup teams
(Mon, 21 Aug 2017 12:39:12 GMT)
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Back in 2008, Paul Azinger led the weakest U.S. Ryder Cup team in recent history into battle. His back against the wall, and with the U.S. team without a victory since 1999, he drew inspiration from he Navy SEALS. That idea led to what Azinger later called the “Pod System,” and the concept is pretty simple: Professional golfers aren’t used to having partners, or being on a team, but as Azinger saw it, the European Team boasted an inherent advantage in making that transition because the team featured players from a variety of different countries. That may not sound like an advantage, but in a roundabout way, it kind of is. To make things simple, let’s say pretend a European

McIlroy eyes four playoff starts with caddie Diamond
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 12:43:00 GMT)
After contemplating shutting things down for the balance of 2017, Rory McIlroy is in the field this week at The Northern Trust. Speaking to reporters at a media event Tuesday, McIlroy detailed his plans to play in all four playoff events - two of which he won last year - despite a rib injury that has nagged him all season and twice led him to take time off. After a T-22 finish at the PGA Championship, McIlroy lamented his inability to shake the injury and offered up the notion that he might skip the postseason on both the PGA Tour and European Tour in an effort to get healthy for 2018, when he will renew his quest for the final leg of the career Grand Slam. "I have a good bit of time to get healthy and address a few things going forward," McIlroy said at Quail Hollow.

This version of Tin Cup starts in a Nepalese tin hut
(Wed, 23 Aug 2017 01:05:00 GMT)
When junior golfer Pratima Sherpa lists the Royal Nepal Golf Club as her home course, she is being literal. The 17-year-old has lived her entire life in a maintenance shed between the third green and fourth tee. When she talks about the pleasure of smacking drives with a wood, she is being serious. Her first set of clubs was whittled from branches that fell from the trees lining the course. When this 5-foot-2 powerhouse from Kathmandu says she is trying to do the impossible, she means it. “Where I’m from, people from poor families are not supposed to even be able to touch a golf ball,” Sherpa says. “I tell everyone, ‘I will show you.’” She’s already shown us, this indomitable girl who grew up

All 8 NCAA semifinalists to play in East Lake Cup
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 07:54:00 GMT)
All eight semifinalists from the 2017 men’s and women’s NCAA Championship will participate in the East Lake Cup this October. The three-day, match-play event will be held Oct. 30-Nov. 1 at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. Reigning NCAA champion Oklahoma headlines the men’s side, along with national runner-up Oregon, two-time defending East Lake Cup champion Illinois and Vanderbilt. "It gives our team a chance to compete at one of the top golf courses in the country against three outstanding programs,” Sooners coach Ryan Hybl said. “It will be a great challenge, but an exciting three days for collegiate golf fans.” On the women’s side, defending NCAA champion Arizona State will square off against

Presidents Cup 2017: Who can make a move for a spot during the playoffs?
(Wed, 23 Aug 2017 00:13:04 GMT)
The United States is probably going to win this year's Presidents Cup. At the very least, it is going to be heavily favored over the International team at Liberty National in late September. The bigger question for the U.S. side: Who is going to be in that celebration room on Sunday evening after they claim their seventh-consecutive victory? The 12-player teams will be set on Sept. 6 after the Dell Technologies Championship in Boston, which doubles as the second round of the FedEx Cup Playoffs. Ten players will qualify on points, and captain Steve Stricker will choose the other two members of the team.  There are two tournaments -- the Northern Trust Open and the Dell Technologies -- left for

Power Rankings: FedExCup Playoffs
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 13:00:00 GMT)
NOTE: In all 10 editions of the Playoffs, the top 13 seeds have advanced to the finale. After what may have been a blip in 2015 (due to the best golfers performing the best during the Playoffs), the latest iteration of the points system, which curtailed distribution by 20 percent of the system used from 2009-2014, once again turned out the kind of churn that the previous structure yielded. For example, Jason Kokrak opened 65th in points last year, and then went T7-T8-T17 before settling at 33rd. While there's lightning in a bottle out there, the long hitter is a reminder that the majority of those who advance to the TOUR Championship likely have enjoyed a fruitful season in advance of the volatility of the Playoffs.

Gould breaks overtime jinx with tie at Midwest Shootout
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 21:45:00 GMT)
CASEYVILLE • Shannon Gould can't wait for her next overtime session. The MICDS senior, for the first time in her golfing career, is no longer afraid of extra holes. Thanks to a tie. Gould recorded a birdie on the first hole of overtime to share medalist honors in the Midwest Shootout Girls Golf Classic on Tuesday at Far Oaks Golf Club. Cape Notre Dame senior Allison Bray also birdied No. 18 and the two decided to call it a draw. "We figured we could keep going on forever," Gould said. "So, that was the best way to end it." Bray agreed, "We have a two-hour drive home. I think all of us, we just wanted to get going." The tie was a fitting end for the two golfers who dominated the first 18 holes.

Hall of Fame Profile: Roberto Castro
(Mon, 21 Aug 2017 22:04:00 GMT)
- It hardly comes as a surprise that Roberto Castro will soon be inducted into Georgia Tech's Athletic Hall of Fame as golf is in his family's blood, but you might be surprised if you knew that his blood runs especially hot. With an aunt, Jenny Lidback, who played 17 seasons the LPGA Tour, an uncle, Alex Lidback, who played for LSU, grandparents, Franca and Arne Lidback, who played for the national teams in Peru, and two younger brothers who played Division I college golf, this sport has long been Roberto's game. After his mother, Annie, took a skinny lad to the NCAA Championships in 2000 and he watched the Yellow Jackets fall to Oklahoma State in a playoff, Castro all but committed to one day play for Georgia Tech.

Golf is trying to shed its image as an old man's sport and is luring bloggers to push that message
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 22:04:22 GMT)
Alexandra Dieck is known for touting the latest fashion trends on her blog Lexicon of Style. Later this week, she'll be tackling a rather unexpected subject: golf. Dieck, 26, is among a handful of social media influencers hired by the PGA Tour to tout the sport to younger audiences during the Northern Trust tournament this week. Dieck's social media peers will include other fashion writers, foodies and mommy bloggers. "We are creating a totally new experience in addition to great golf that is inherently more social and fun, and we want more people to know about it," said Julie Tyson, PGA Tour's vice president of business development. "We are widening our circle of storytellers to include influencers

One year later: Olympic course defies the odds
(Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:00:00 GMT)
Each morning on his way to work Marcio Galvăo drives by the vacant sports arenas in Rio’s Olympic Park and the 3,600 empty apartments in the boarded-up Olympic Village. Like most Brazilians who expected so much more from the 2016 Olympic Games, the first held in South America, it makes Galvăo’s heart sink. “It’s a disaster, a disaster,” he says. “From a Brazilian perspective, it’s a shame, because it’s a kind of incompetence from the governance.” It also serves as a daily reckoning of how crucial Galvăo’s job is, not just to golf in Brazil but to the ultimate legacy of the ’16 Games. Those who know him call Galvăo a “serious guy,” although the 67-year-old’s infectious smile and quick laugh suggest

Scotty Cameron talks Justin Thomas, trends in mallets and more
(Tue, 22 Aug 2017 18:24:05 GMT)
The name Scotty Cameron has become synonymous with high-quality putters, and Titleist’s master craftsman for putters (that’s his official title) has worked with scores of the game’s top players. From Tiger Woods to Phil Mickelson, Brad Faxon to Jordan Spieth, they’ve all come to his California studio to have their putting stroke scrutinized, and to have Cameron and his staff make them a putter. Cameron, 54, recently spoke at length with Golfweek‘s David Dusek about trends, finding just the right putter to match your stroke and more. David Dusek: I have learned that some of the simplest questions are the most difficult to answer, so I’m going to toss one to you that couldn’t be easier: How do you fit a player to a putter?

Will Doc Redman follow long line of successful U.S. Amateur winners?
(Mon, 21 Aug 2017 21:29:16 GMT)
I woke up on Monday still reeling from that astonishing U.S. Amateur finale on Sunday in which Clemson's Doc Redman beat Texas' Doug Ghim in 37 holes after trailing 2 down with two to play. For a tournament that often gets over-romanticized (with yours truly being culprit No. 1), this was one of the few years in which it actually exceeded its billing as the biggest and best amateur tournament in the world. It can be a life-changer for its participants, too. Think about Redman. He made it into a 13-man playoff on Wednesday just to get into the match play field of 64. What if he lips out one more putt in the 36-hole stroke play portion? We aren't even talking about him. Now, he's going to be teeing

Pitch and Run: Orange Whip

One year later: Olympics give golf global spark
(Mon, 21 Aug 2017 16:00:00 GMT)
As a catalyst for change, India’s Aditi Ashok didn’t exactly look as if she’d been plucked from Central Casting. Golf’s return to the Olympics last fall for the first time in over a century was billed in some circles as the ultimate grow-the-game initiative, a chance to transform a sport that had long been considered the realm of the wealthy in many parts of the world into a bona fide competition worthy of a nation’s best. In theory, the proponents explained, a chance to compete for medals at the Olympics would elevate golf in the eyes of many, which would generate interest and potential funding. In practice, it was the shy, rail-thin Ashok who stood as the standard-bearer when the then-18-year-old carded a second-round 68 to move into contention at the Olympic women’s competition and became an example of golf’s Olympic reach.
