Last time we saw Sergio Garcia, he was winning his long-awaited first major at the 2017 Masters. He was super happy about it. He continued being happy about it throughout his barnstorming tour through New York City. And what’s he doing now? Well, after scoring an invitation to Rory McIlroy’s wedding on Saturday, he spent Sunday attending Real Madrid’s match against Barcelona (he’s a lifelong Madrid fan), IN HIS GREEN JACKET. He even got to get the match underway. So, basically: Yea, life is pretty good for Sergio Garcia right now.
Highlights from Day 2 of the SEC Women's Golf Championships including an interview with Harang Lee. April 22, 2017 BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- A late-day surge pushed the No. 6-ranked Georgia women's golf team from fourth to second on the team leaderboard at the SEC Championships on Saturday.

The team with the excellent Presidents Cup pedigree will be worth paying close attention to in New Orleans. Grace and Oosthuizen were unbeatable at the 2015 Presidents Cup in Korea, winning all four team matches together. Grace also defeated Matt Kuchar (2 and 1) in singles for a 5-0 record,
Ian Poulter lost his status on Friday at the Valero Texas Open. Ian Poulter formally lost his fully-exempt PGA Tour status on Friday when he missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open, leaving him short of fulfilling the requirements of a major medical extension on which his card hinged.
