3 US senators want women's golf open moved from Trump course (The Associated Press) (Oct 25, 2016 9:36am) |
Three Democratic U.S. senators are increasing the pressure on the U.S. Golf Association to move next year's women's open away from a New Jersey course owned by Donald Trump. Richard Blumenthal, of Connecticut, Edward Markey, of Massachusetts, and Bob Casey, of Pennsylvania, made the request to move next July's event away from Trump National in Bedminster in a letter sent Monday. The senators called on USGA executive director Mike Davis to consider suspending further events at properties owned by the Republican presidential candidate because of what they describe as a ''pattern of degrading and dehumanizing women'' over decades.
American golfer Patrick Reed has game, loves to travel (The Associated Press) (Oct 25, 2016 9:00am)Thomas a winner again, and still a long road toward the top (The Associated Press) (Oct 25, 2016 7:08am) Winning a PGA Tour event for the second straight year, especially the manner in which Justin Thomas rallied in Malaysia, made it easy to assume that a player of his polish and power could be on the verge of breaking through to the next level. Thomas began the new season with birdies on his last two holes to make the cut on the number at the Safeway Open, and two days later he was on the cusp of contention. Last week in the CIMB Classic, after seemingly shooting himself out of the tournament at 4 over through 13 holes in the third round, Thomas finished with five straight birdies to salvage a 71, and then closed with a 64 to win by three shots.
The Asia swing is the rare trip where Patrick Reed's wife doesn't accompany him. Not that Reed figures to spend that much time in his new digs. American golfers are traveling more than ever, and the 26-year-old Reed is taking that to an extreme.
Harrington not ready to give up Ryder Cup playing ambitions (Reuters) (Oct 25, 2016 3:25am)Look up - way up, as Yao Ming towers over Gary Player in amazing pictures (Yahoo Sports) (Oct 24, 2016 12:51pm)
(Reuters) - Padraig Harrington is not ready to sacrifice years of his career to take up the captaincy of Europe's Ryder Cup team, if offered the job for the 2018 edition, and says he wants to face the Americans at Le Golf National in Paris in a playing capacity. The three-times major winner, who secured his first European Tour win in eight years on Sunday at the Portugal Masters, was a vice-captain at the last two Ryder Cups and played in the 1999, 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008 and 2010 editions. "I want to be a player," Harrington told Sky Sports.

Korea women's tour out to prove there's no place like home (Reuters) (Oct 24, 2016 3:22am)PGA Tour adds South Korea tournament to calendar (Reuters) (Oct 24, 2016 12:03am) The U.S. PGA Tour announced on Monday it will add a new event in South Korea, the $9.25 million CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges, to its tournament schedule from next year. The event will be played from Oct. 19-22 for the 2017/18 season with a field of 78 players, including the top 60 from the FedEx Cup standings. PGA Tour Deputy Commissioner Jay Monahan said the "phenomenal experience" of hosting the Presidents Cup in South Korea last year was a major driver behind the decision to stage a tour event in the country.
By Peter Rutherford SEOUL (Reuters) - The road to U.S. LPGA Tour riches is one well traveled by South Korean golfers but the domestic KLPGA circuit is looking to stem the annual exodus by boosting prize money and world ranking points on its increasingly lucrative schedule. A host of major winners, not to mention Park In-bee's Rio Olympic triumph, have cemented Korea's status as the gold standard of women's golf, but there is no doubt the local tour loses a little sparkle when top players set off for the LPGA. The last couple of seasons have been particularly rough on the KLPGA with the loss of several top drawcards including Chun In-gee, the most popular player on the tour for years.
PGA Tour to play official event in South Korea next year (The Associated Press) (Oct 23, 2016 10:48pm) The PGA Tour expanded its Asia swing to three tournaments Monday by adding a new event in South Korea with a limited field and a $9.25 million purse.
