PGA Tour drives idea of setting its own rules into rough

May JohnsonMar 15, 2019

It carries the prestige and the purse to stack up to the PGA Tour's premier tournaments, and TPC Sawgrass, one of golf's iconic courses, provides the flawless backdrop for Tiger Woods and the sport's biggest stars up and down the leaderboard. Fleetwood is yet to taste victory in the United States, a situation that will inevitably change before long. However, his best finish in 10 starts at TPC Sawgrass was a tie for 12th two years ago and he tied for 17th last year, so it seems he's starting to figure it out.

By becoming the first player since Hal Sutton in 1983 to win the tournament on debut, the Tour struggler earned $US1,080,000 and leapt to 64 in the world rankings.

On the par-five 16th, Perks opted for a four iron from 199 yards with his second shot, aiming for a pin placed on the right-hand side of the green, with water further right. Funk was playing in the group ahead, and Woods was waiting on the 17th tee, watching. "Not too many people can say that unless they've played in March".

Among non-pros, there is the story of Angelo Spagnola, a grocery shop owner from Pittsburgh who scored a 66 on the par 3.

Tiger Woods insists his preparation is on track for next month's Masters despite a neck injury interrupting his schedule leading up to the Augusta National major.

Case Keenum trade details: Redskins acquire QB for pick, half salary
Though John Elway indicated he wanted Keenum to stay with the team, trading him is a move you can't argue with. Last season, his first full-season as a starter, Keenum guided the Denver Broncos to a 6-and-10 record.

Killen is best known as the short game coach of Justin Thomas and has also worked with other Americans JB Holmes, Kenny Perry, Nick Watney and Bud Cauley.

In addition to the difficulty of executing the shots required at TPC Sawgrass, Woods noted that Pete Dye is also a master of creating intimidating visuals.

BILLY FOSTER (caddie for Matt Fitzpatrick): The best players on the planet stand on the tee shaking like a shitting dog-and it's only a wedge. He was forced to lay up from there and hit a nice third to about 11 feet, giving himself a chance to make a birdie on what's playing as the easiest hole on the course thus far. It's an wonderful golf hole. Although it's just 137 yards to the Island Green, the hole is surrounded on nearly all sides by water and has a tiny bunker in front of it, leading to many highlight-reel moments as frustrated golfers try to get their drives to stay on the green. There is nothing stupid about the hole, with the exception of a few years when they shaved the fringe area down to nothing-any spin on the ball, and there was nothing stopping it.

The competitor in Woods will never concede that. I've got to pick my days and I've got to pick my hours. Before we get to all that, let's check out how things fared with last week's sample lineup! And if it's hard as a brick on top of it, that could be a nightmare.

The 18th hole, he mentioned, plays completely different this time of year compared to May. "My approach has always been 'let's just hit the green and try and two-putt'".
