Hero's welcome: Tiger actually led in Round 2
Tiger Woods, who hadn?t teed up for a tournament in 301 days prior to Thursday, had another great day at the Hero World Challenge on Friday.
Hideki Matsuyama not penalized for controversial rules situation on No. 18
Hideki Matsuyama shot 6-under 66 Friday in Round 2 of the Hero World Challenge, a result which will stand despite a controversial finish at the 18th green. Essentially, Matsuyama left a green-side chip short and the ball began rolling back toward him and the original divot. As the ball was rolling back, video clearly shows Matsuyama looking down at the ground and stepping on the divot with his left foot. The ball ultimately stopped short of where Matsuyama placed his foot, but he could have been assessed a penalty for intentionally attempting to improve his lie. Golf Channel?s Todd Lewis said PGA Tour Vice President of Rules and Competition Mark Russell spoke with Matsuyama after the round in
After a happy-go-lucky lead-up, Tiger is all business in the Bahamas
Jason Sobel ESPN Senior Writer Close Covered golf since 2004 Former writer at Golf Channel Winner of four Emmys while at ESPN NASSAU, Bahamas -- Tiger Woods showed all the signs of returning to normalcy in his first competitive round of golf in 301 days. He hit the driver a Bahama mile. He rolled in five birdie putts. He shot 3-under 69. He never winced or limped. But if there was a bigger indication that Woods was back, it might have been that Justin Thomas got the freeze-out. The classic Tiger Woods freeze-out. Woods and Thomas have become buddies in recent years. They both live in South Florida. They play friendly rounds together. One day after Thomas won his first major at the PGA Championship
Rahm gets new agent as Mickelson gets full-time caddie
Spanish star Jon Rahm has a new agent in a move that means Phil Mickelson will keep his brother as his caddie. Lagardere Sports announced Friday Tim Mickelson, Rahm's coach at Arizona State until leaving to become his agent at Lagardere, has made a full-time move to be on the bag for his brother next year. Mickelson and Jim ''Bones'' Mackay parted ways this summer after 25 years, and Mickelson used his brother for the rest of the year.
VIDEO: Jeff Overton drains 94-foot putt at IU basketball game
If there was ever a time for a follow-up ?Boom, Baby!?, it came Wednesday night. Jeff Overton, the man who uttered those famous words after a hole-out at the 2010 Ryder Cup, was on hand for the Duke-Indiana basketball game Wednesday and participated in a halftime event with hopes of giving away a prize. The 34-year-old would putt from one baseline and try to get the ball through a hole stationed at the other baseline. Yes, a 94-foot putt. If Overton could drain it, a fan would win a trip for four to Myrtle Beach. Overton delivered, and the crowd loved it. Here?s a different angle of Overton?s feat, courtesy of Golfweek?s Lance Ringler. Boom, Baby, for sure. So Overton didn?t have that reaction
Kevin Kisner uses replacement caddie mid-round after regular looper injured
NASSAU, Bahamas ? Kevin Kisner had to make a call to the bullpen early in his first round at the Hero World Challenge after his longtime caddie went down with a knee injury. Jimmy Piercy came to the Bahamas with his good friend, caddie Duane Bock, to watch Bock loop for Kisner at Albany Golf Club. When Bock?s knee ?popped? on the fourth hole, Piercy got closer to this week?s action than he ever expected. Bock was transported to the locker room, where officials helped to elevate his leg, and Piercy stepped into action to carry Kisner?s bag. It wasn?t a first. Piercy said he has toted Kisner?s bag in a couple of pro-ams, so at least he had an idea what to do. Bock is known for his huge calves ?
Analyzing each of Tiger Woods' different swings
David Foster Wallace, who wrote the seminal piece on Roger Federer, titled ?Federer Both Flesh and Not,? was also stunningly accurate when considering world class players of a lesser rank. Of Michael Joyce, who was the 79th-ranked tennis player in the world when Wallace wrote of him: ?You are invited to try to imagine what it would be like to be among the hundred best in the world at something. At anything. I have tried to imagine; it?s hard.? These words ring in my ear when I think about the absurdity of what it means to be the best in the world at something. And then when I think about what Tiger Woods did, it is not just unimaginable, it is unfathomable. Just 20 men have ascended to the No.
