“I’m so glad that I came out” Fujikawa told Outsports. “I can finally be the best version of me.” Dustin Johnson addressed rumors about his relationship with fiancée Paulina Gretzky in a tweet on Tuesday night.
That comes as some reasonable surprise as — though the two events are not directly linked — CBS has owned the broadcasting rights at the Masters for decades. NBC Sports has just grabbed its piece of the Masters pie.
McCullough well trained in the golf swing has also trained as an EMT. He sprang into action rushing to the 15th tee box to apply “aggressive CPR” to resuscitate Whitt who didn’t have a pulse when McCullough arrived on the scene.
What’s really on the minds of the best golfers in the world? In the polite confines of the PGA Tour it’s often hard to know. Until now. With the goal of letting players let it fly we granted them anonymity and picked their brains on a wide range of hot-button topics (cheating on Tour! Tiger v. Phil! Brandel Chamblee!).
As a press release for the tournament notes “This is not a lottery contest sweepstakes or ‘give-away’ but rather a pre-qualification for those persons wishing to purchase tickets to the Augusta National Women’s Amateur Championship.”
“From the project’s inception our one goal was to make the Rules easier to understand and apply for all golfers” said Thomas Pagel senior managing director of Governance for the USGA.
“While we aim to stage a first-class championship our motivation goes beyond the scores posted between the ropes” Augusta National Chairman Fred Ridley said in a press release.
Fujikawa came onto the scene as a teenage amateur sensation from Hawaii who qualified for the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. He turned pro the following year and made the cut at the Sony Open becoming the youngest player in decades to make a weekend on the PGA Tour.
Before Phil Mickelson tees off in next week’s Tour Championship he’s spending his free time preparing for the Ryder Cup in his own unique way. Mickelson who seems to be enjoying his first month on social media tweeted a video on Wednesday night while on a shooting range.
As part of newest rollout the USGA and R&A combined to create a “Player’s Edition” to make the Rules easier and quicker to understand. You can view the Player’s Edition here where each rule is included with purposes for each. The intuitive set of rules is grouped into 10 categories such as Bunkers and Putting Greens Lifting and Returning a Ball to Play Penalty Relief and more.
For those interested in the full set of Rules those have also been updated and are available online. The first-ever Augusta National Women’s Amateur is officially set for April of 2019. If you want a chance to see the historic event in person Augusta is offering tickets to the public.
In GOLF’s 2018 anonymous player poll we surveyed 59 Tour pros on a wide variety of subjects (Slow play! Cheating on Tour! Tiger vs. Phil!). One of the most compelling questions came on NBC/Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee who has a history of polarizing opinions.
