Presidents Cup shows golf yet to become truly global sport
Created by the U.S.-based PGA Tour, the Presidents Cup largely copied the Ryder Cup format. The 13th staging of the biennial event will be held at Royal Melbourne starting exactly a year on Wednesday and a glance at the respective world rankings of the likely players suggests that the Americans are poised to continue their dominance. "I fear for the immediate future of the Presidents Cup," New Zealander Frank Nobilo, who played on the first three International teams, told Reuters.

American John Catlin fired a six-under-par 66 to share a one-shot lead with qualifying school graduate Lee Sung-ho of South Korea in the opening round of the Indonesian Masters on Thursday. Unfazed by playing alongside seasoned professionals like Swede Henrik Stenson and India's Anirban Lahiri, Catlin showed the sparkling form that led him to three Asian Tour titles this season. The 28-year-old carded seven birdies and a bogey to set the pace in the morning session at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club.
Symetra Tour, Women's All Pro Tour team to further developmental path
The Symetra Tour and Women's All Pro Tour (WAPT) have joined forces to further the development of women professional golfers. The Symetra Tour is known as the ?Road to LPGA.? The agreement focuses on the WAPT serving in a similar capacity as a path to the Symetra Tour. ?There are so many deserving professional female golfers who are members of the Symetra Tour, but haven't had access to our tournaments because we don't host weekly qualifiers,? said Mike Nichols, the Chief Business Officer of the Symetra Tour. ?Additionally, those players who are on the alternate list waiting for their opportunity to play often lack consistent tournament competition to be ready when their time comes. Our hope

Scorecard scrutiny gives Matt Borchert 2nd chance, victory in PGA Tournament ...
Matt Borchert thought he had finished a shot behind Bob Sowards with a 69 Tuesday in Event No. 4 of the PGA Tournament Series. But Sowards told him they both had 68s. Borchert re-checked his scorecard and realized his mistake. The golfers were tied at 8-under 136 and headed for a playoffs. Borchert then drained a 20-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to win at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla. It was the first PGA Tournament Series victory for Borchert, the PGA Professional at Isleworth Golf & Country Club near Orlando. ?It was too long of a day on the golf course,? Borchert told PGA.com when asked about the scoring issue. ?I was trying to figure out where I stood on 18. I thought we
PYA's ANNUAL GOLF OUTING IS ANOTHER SUCCESS
On Monday, October 8, 2018, Port Washington Youth Activities held the 21st annual Marty Rybecky Memorial Golf Outing, once again at the Village Club of Sands Point.

Brooks Koepka probably isn?t going to be happy about ESPN?s list of the year?...
That chip might grow even larger when Koepka sees ESPN The Magazine's list of 20 most-dominant athletes of 2018, which was released on Tuesday. Koepka, who won two of his sport's four major titles in 2018, plus the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges this past fall, was noticeably omitted from the list: Before golf fans grab their torches and pitchforks though, the sport is represented on the list with the LPGA's Ariya Jutanugarn. And she didn't just sneak in on the list.
Moody goes wire-to-wire to win third Gate Senior Amateur
Winning never gets old, especially at a player's home course. ?But it gets to be more of a struggle at a certain age,? said Ken Moody. For the third chilly and windy round in a row on Wednesday, Moody grinded out an over-par score in the Gate Petroleum Senior Amateur. But they were all good enough for a wire-to-wire victory in the senior division at 7-over-par 221 at the Ponte Vedra Inn and Club. Moody has won three Gate Seniors and one Gate Invitational at the Ponte Vedra Club, where he has been a member for 20 years. He also has won 10 PVIC club championships.
