Dustin Johnson failed spectacularly to rescue the RBC Heritage from Masters fatigue and Tiger's absence.
C.T. Pan watched the Masters last week with his wife, and sometimes caddie, Yingchun Lin, thrilled by Tiger Woods' stirring victory at Augusta National. Pan complied quickly, taking advantage of top-ranked Dustin Johnson's back-nine meltdown Sunday to win the RBC Heritage for his first PGA Tour victory. Along with $1.242 million, the win opens a world of opportunities for the 27-year-old Taiwanese player: He's exempt on tour through 2020-21, in line to make the President's Cup International team this year and will have an opportunity he's dreamed about since taking up the game in the mid-1990s by playing at Augusta National.
Taiwan's Pan Cheng-tsung won his first PGA Tour tournament with a one-stroke victory over Matt Kuchar as world number one Dustin Johnson stumbled badly on the back nine at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina on Sunday. Pan, who goes by the initials C.T., collected a birdie and two pars on his last three holes to shoot a four-under par 67 and end a tense final round at 12-under 272. Kuchar, finishing ahead of Pan, used a birdie at the last to also shoot 67 and waited as Pan, ranked 113 in the world, held steady at the end at Harbour Town Golf Links on Hilton Head Island.
Oregon Women's Golf HC Derek Radley and senior golfer Petra Salko speak with Pac-12 Networks about their team showing up to support their fellow Ducks at the 2019 Pac-12 Men's Golf Championships in Eugene, OR on Monday. Radley explained the bond between the two teams saying, "both our men's and women's teams work closely together". Salko added, "It's not our team, but it still feels like I'm cheering for my team".

One of the beauties of college golf's postseason as it began in earnest this past week is its ability to allow unknown players to rise to the competitive challenge and perform, and the 2018-'19 version got its first glimpse of an impressive out-of-nowhere story last weekend in the form of Macy Somoskey. The 19-year-old from Sanford, Fla., is a freshman at the University of Mississippi. In the process, the Lady Rebels, ranked No. 35 by Golfstat entering the championship, clinched the eighth and final match-play spot.
On Monday, the PGA Tour announced the Denmark star has accepted special temporary membership for the reminder of the 2019 campaign. Bjerregaard nearly missed out on the honor at the WGC in Austin, as a win in the semi-finals or consolation match would have given him enough points to pass Ben Martin's 266 (last season's No. 150 on the FedEx Cup standings, which serves as the benchmark for this status). “Yeah, it's obviously a goal of mine,” Bjerregaard said after he lost to Francesco Molinari.
President Donald Trump has found plenty of time to play golf since taking office, and he usually has no problem finding a famous playing partner or two to join him. Easter weekend was no different, as the White House released photos of the president on the course Friday with the LPGA's Lexi Thompson and conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh. The threesome posed for pictures at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Fla.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but that's not exactly true when it comes to tour player swings. A golf swing is a complex combination of moving elements, and how those elements work together separates major champions from 90-shooters. We asked Golf Digest 50 Best Teacher Mike Jacobs to help break down some close-up images of eight great players to explain what exactly you can see in the swing—and what's hidden below the surface.
A star-studded field of 160 golfers will compete for $7.3 million in prize money when the Zurich Classic of New Orleans tees off this week at the TPC of Louisiana in Avondale. The tournament, the 27th of 46 events on the 2018-02019 PGA Tour calendar, has been played annually at the TPC since 2005, with the exception of 2006 when it was moved to English Turn because of damage to the course from Hurricane Katrina. The field for this year's tournament features eight of the world's Top 20-ranked players, including: Brooks Koepka (No. 3); Jon Rahm (No. 11); Jason Day (No. 14): and Tony Finau (No. 15). Koepka, Rahm, Day, Finau and Patrick Cantlay all finished in the Top 10 at The Masters earlier this
Visitors to Belfair Golf Club, the 36-hole golf community in Bluffton, S.C., which hosts next week's PGA Professional Championship, can attest to Doug Coupe's collection of 15,000 assorted golf balls as being one of golf's most impressive displays. Meticulously alphabetized, sorted by color and separated by category, Coupe's collection includes prized autographs from players like Arnold Palmer and Gary Player, and logoed entries from golf clubs around the world. It started when Coupe and his wife, Vivian, lived at the Quechee Club in Vermont, and Doug found himself wandering around the meandering Ottauquechee River, where he became fascinated with the various logoed golf balls he came across.
Kansas men's golf used a 5-under (279) round on Sunday to move up the leaderboard and finish in sole possession of third with a three-round 13-under (839) at the Hawkeye Invitational in Iowa City, Iowa. The third-place finish gives the No. 31 Jayhawks their fifth-straight top-three finish and momentum heading into the 2019 postseason. Senior Charlie Hillier was the Jayhawks' top finisher of the invitational after concluding the weekend 12-under (201). Hillier entered Sunday atop the player leaderboard, and despite carding his third consecutive round under par with a 2-under 69, he finished two strokes behind the top spot and finished third in the 74-golfer field. Kansas junior Andy Spencer was
Three area players tied for first in the first round of the ASun men's tournament on Sunday at the Chateau Elan Resort Legends Course in Braselton, Ga., and the University of North Florida took an eight-shot lead over Liberty in the team standings. Phillip Knowles and Jordan Batchelor of the Ospreys and Thomas Thurloway of Jacksonville University all shot 2-under 70 to open the tournament, with UNF's Travis Trace (73) in a tie for sixth and teammate Cody Carroll and the Dolphins' Eduardo Carrete tied for 11th with 76s. Knowles birdied four of seven holes between Nos. 9 and 15 during one stretch, Batchelor birdied his first two, then made three of five later in the round, and Thurloway recovered
FRISCO, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Two championship golf courses and a lighted short course are coming to 600 acres in Frisco. On Monday, the PGA of America revealed its plans for a major development that includes a lot more than just moving its headquarters from Florida. Legendary pro golfer Lee Trevino was in town giving his stamp of approval to designs the PGA hopes will not only appeal to those who already love the sport, but also encourage future generations to embrace it as well. Late last year the PGA of America announced it was moving its headquarters from Florida to Frisco, but the plans revealed Monday include much more on 600 acres near Highway 380 and the Dallas North Tollway. The project
The Trust for Public Land has dropped its appeal of a Marin Superior Court decision blocking the county's purchase of San Geronimo Golf Course.

Last year, was a banner year for the Palos Verdes boys golf team, winning the Bay League title and the CIF Central Divisional Team Championship, defeating Loyola. However, this season Palos Verdes (9-2) returned just two golfers from last year's team (sophomore Matthew Kang and senior Will Jandro). Many expected Palos Verdes to be in rebuilding mode, but several new faces have stepped up to complement Kang and Jandro putting the Sea Kings one match victory away from claiming a share of the Bay League title and a chance to defend their CIF Title. Ray Rivera, who is in his 10th season coaching boys golf for the Sea Kings has been pleased with his team's effort so far this season. “The guys have
Brooke Henderson wins in Hawaii to tie Canadian victory mark Brooke Henderson successfully defended her title in the Lotte Championship on Saturday to tie Sandra Post's record for LPGA Tour victories by a Canadian with eight. The 21-year-old Henderson closed with a 2-under 70 at windy Ko Olina Golf Club for a four-stroke victory over Eun-Hee Ji. "When I was younger it was just a goal to be on the LPGA Tour, to win my first event," Henderson said. "And when that happened and I won my first major the year after, things kind of just started to fall into place. I knew the record was eight. Just kept creeping toward it the last three years, which was really exciting. "And then I think starting last

Brooke Henderson (+9%): Ripping driver off the deck, knocking down flags, chasing in putts – all with the lead on the back nine! If the 21-year-old isn't the most fun player to watch on the LPGA, then we don't know who is. C.T. Pan (+6%): The former decorated amateur snapped a months-long streak of middling play with a gritty, out-of-nowhere win at the Heritage. Matt Kuchar (+5%): Not sure we're ready to live in a world in which the smiling assassin is a legit Player of the Year contender, but his runner-up at the Heritage was his fourth top-2 finish of the season.
Phil Mickelson's calves are just one thing that have caught attention on his social media platforms as of late, and now more pros are taking notes and wanting to get in on the action. Bryson DeChambeau took to his Instagram Monday to challenge Phil to a calf-off in his new home gym by doing the classic “point the toe, pull the toe” Phil calf exercise on a weighted calf machine. We'll see if Lefty responds to DeChambeau's challenge, but our guess is he (and his calves) will rise (get it) to the occasion.
The Seemore Platinum Series of 100 percent milled putters do more than expand the company's lineup of mallets and blades. Firstly, the Seemore Platinum Series commemorates the 20th anniversary of the distinctive putter's defining moment: Payne Stewart's 72nd hole U.S. Open-winning putt at Pinehurst No. 2 in 1999. The second aspect involves the unique balance of many Seemore putters, starting with the original.
