The Tiger Woods-Phil Mickelson love affair has got to stop
As Woods and Mickelson have reemerged on the golf scene, their bromance has intensified. Wednesday's display of passion may have been the most outward yet as Woods gushed over an ?extraordinary? Mickelson fresh off a win at Pebble Beach. ?What Phil has done has been extraordinary, to be that consistent for the length of time,? Woods said Wednesday via ESPN.
Sergio Garcia apologized for Saudi International meltdown ahead of Genesis Open
Sergio Garcia apologized again for his meltdown earlier this month in Saudi Arabia. Sergio Garcia was disqualified from the Saudi International earlier this month after damaging multiple greens and throwing a massive temper tantrum in a bunker, marking the first disqualification due to ?serious misconduct? in European Tour history. Now, the Spaniard is preparing to take the course on the PGA Tour for the first time since the incident this week at the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club in Los Angeles.
Why Arizona's Whisper Rock Golf Club was the real winner at Pebble Beach
Phil Mickelson topped Paul Casey and Scott Stallings to win his 44th career PGA Tour title at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. But the Monday finish on the Monterey Peninsula could just as easily have been how the final leader board looks at their club championship. In a fun twist, all three PGA Tour winners are members at Arizona's Whisper Rock Golf Club.
Golf Channel adding live college event, looking for more
Golf Channel is interested in live programming from Monday to Wednesday, and the answer might be found in college tournaments. "We're trying to grow appropriately," Tom Knapp, executive vice president of programming and partnerships, said last week at Pebble Beach when Golf Channel announced plans to televise the Western Intercollegiate. Golf Channel already has the East Lake Cup in the fall, along with the NCAA men's and women's championships in May, which has made for compelling television with eight finalists competing in team match play.
Donald Trump Reportedly Just Installed a Gigantic Golf-Simulator in the White...
President Donald Trump until recently had a 69-day streak without actually playing a round of golf on one of his Trump-branded golf courses, but it looks like he's been making up for lost time according to two White House insiders who revealed the president has installed a room-sized ?golf simulator? game in his personal quarters. The new system replaces an ?older, less sophisticated golf simulator that had been installed under President Obama,? The Washington Post reported, and cost roughly $50,000. An official who spoke to The Post said the president paid for the new installation, reportedly created by the Danish company TrackMan Golf, out of his own pocket. Trackman's technology is used at
Golf: Woods honored as Genesis Open granted 'elevated status'
The Tiger Woods-hosted Genesis Open was granted "elevated status" on the PGA Tour on Wednesday, promising a bright future for the tournament to go with its rich history. The tour announced that starting next year the tournament formerly known as the Los Angeles Open will join Jack Nicklaus's Memorial tournament in Ohio and the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida in the special category. Played at Riviera Country Club, the event has been won over the years by a Who's Who of golf -- Palmer, Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Tom Watson, Nick Faldo, Ernie Els and Phil Mickelson -- although Nicklaus and Woods are notable exceptions.
Rory McIlroy takes on giant task in setting out alongside Tiger Woods
Rory McIlroy believes becoming a mixture of David and Goliath can help in his quest to win a Masters and so complete the career grand slam. And the diminutive Irishman with the power-packed swing will try to put his new split-personality to the test here at the Genesis Open. I do like reading motivational books and have got one on the go now: David and Goliath, by Malcolm Gladwell,? McIlroy said.

President Trump won't have to leave the White House to hit the greens. The links-loving commander-in-chief recently installed a room-sized golf simulator in his personal quarters ? but he has yet to use the private driving range, a White House official said Wednesday. The $50,000 system was installed over the last few weeks as replacement for a simulator installed under former President Barack Obama. ?He paid for the new one, including installation, personally,? the official told the Daily News.
Is it time for Tiger Woods to break through at Riviera?
It is one of golf's great mysteries. Why has Tiger Woods, arguably the greatest golfers of all-time, failed to win even once at Riviera Country Club, site of the annual Genesis Open? Coming into this week's 2019 Genesis Open, the former Cypress resident has played his ?hometown? tournament 12 times and not once has he claimed the title. There is no other tournament Woods has played that many times and failed to win. Despite the winless streak, Woods has played respectably at Riviera. He's missed the cut just three times, with two of those coming as an amateur. The third happened last year as he was making his return to golf following spinal fusion surgery. In his other nine starts at the Genesis,
Woods turned down Saudi Arabia offer to keep 'traveling down'
Tiger Woods said on Wednesday that he decided not to play a recent European Tour tournament in Saudi Arabia because he wanted to keep his "traveling down". Four of the world's five top-ranked players, Justin Rose, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau, participated in the Saudi International two weeks ago, lured by large appearance fees for the tour's first event in the country. The tournament, however, threw up uncomfortable questions for the sport and split opinion in the golfing world with Saudi Arabia facing intense international criticism after the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi last October.
Golf: Bubba targets U.S. Ryder Cup captaincy and Hall of Fame
"Then I've always wanted to be a Ryder Cup captain because that was another form of the Hall of Fame. "I remember winning golf tournaments at age 12, that's about the time I really started seeing golf on TV, and Payne Stewart on TV, that's who I watched," he said. "Then my senior year of high school was '97, so that's when (I saw) Tiger (Woods), the baggy red sweater ... pumping his fist." U.S. Ryder Cup captains are typically around the age of 50, so Watson has another decade to press his case to the task force comprised of players and administrators that chooses the leaders for the biennial team event against Europe.
Golf's European Tour to offer the sport's biggest first prize of $3 million
The largest winning prize in the history of tournament golf has been announced by the European tour, with a record $3 million on offer to the winner of the season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai. The new figure more than doubles what Englishman Danny Willett took home with for winning the same event in November 2018. The DP World Tour Championship is the final Rolex Series tournament of the season on the European Tour.
