Tours to eliminate two-shot scorecard error for TV call-in reviews

By PGA Tour News on Mon, Dec 11 2017 1:47 PM

Players no longer will be penalized two shots for an incorrect scorecard if they were not aware of a rules violation when they signed their card. The USGA and R&A also will no longer respond to most TV viewers' calls during the tournament. The changes are part of a local rule effective Jan. 1. Rescinding the scorecard penalty, famously applied to Lexi Thompson at the LPGA Tour's first major last April, is part of a broader standard for using video. Thompson had a three-shot lead in the final round of the ANA Inspiration when a TV viewer noticed she had improperly replaced her golf ball on the green during the third round. She was penalized two shots for the infraction. Because that would have made her score two shots higher, she received an additional two-shot penalty for the scorecard error. That became a four-shot penalty in the final hour of the tournament. Thompson rallied, but eventually lost to So Yeon Ryu in the first hole of a playoff. Leaders from all major tours and...

No. 20: Patrick Cantlay

By PGA Tour News on Mon, Dec 11 2017 8:00 AM

By Cameron Morfit, PGATOUR.COM Patrick Cantlay will make his first-ever start at the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua in the first week of January. It will be a celebration, of sorts, and he will be joined by his coach, Jamie Mulligan; physical therapist, Brendan McGlaughlin; and, as ever, his caddie, Matt Minister. TOP 30 PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2018: We'll countdown our list with one new player each day in December. Click here for the published players. MORE: Top 30 explanation and schedule “He’s in a dream spot,” Mulligan said of Cantlay, who like Paul Goydos and others plays out of Virginia Country Club in Long Beach, California.  In addition to playing in Maui, Cantlay will return to the Masters this season for the first time in six years, and in July he will play in his first Open Championship. Indeed, it’s dreamy stuff, but Cantlay, 25, is right where everyone thought he would be five years ago. He was low amateur at the 2011 U.S. Open, and was low amateur again at the...

Calm, collected and especially cool

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Dec 10 2017 8:00 PM

NAPLES, Fla. – Scores in the 50s aren’t unusual at the QBE Shootout at Tiburon Golf Club at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort. Temperatures in the 50s are. But they say there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing, and Steve Stricker, of wintry Madison, Wisconsin, and O’Hair, from outside Philadelphia, where his four kids went sledding over the weekend, weren’t bothered by the sweater weather. They shot a best-ball 64 at Tiburon on Sunday, good enough for a two-shot win over Ireland’s Graeme McDowell and Shane Lowry. “I was pretty cold,” O’Hair said with a laugh. “Today was tough. The wind was really cold, it was a heavy wind, and it made for difficult conditions. But it warmed up for us.” The winners will split the $820,000 purse for the unofficial win. They fell two behind on the front nine but reeled off three straight birdies before making the turn. Stricker/O’Hair were still nursing a one-shot lead when O’Hair eagled the 17th hole, all but ending it. It was the second...

Steve Stricker, Sean O'Hair victorious at QBE Shootout

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Dec 10 2017 5:45 PM

NAPLES, Fla. -- Steve Stricker provided the pep talk and Sean O'Hair delivered the shot to secure victory Sunday in the QBE Shootout. Stricker and O'Hair closed with an 8-under 64 for a two-shot victory over Graeme McDowell and Shane Lowry, effectively clinching it when O'Hair made an eagle on the par-5 17th hole at Tiburon Golf Club. In the final round of better ball, Stricker and O'Hair rallied from a two-shot deficit on the front nine, built a two-shot lead through 14 holes and were ahead by one shot heading to the reachable 17th with the green guarded by a huge bunker with a vetted, waist-high wall. "Walking to 17 tee, Steve said, `A 3 would go a long way right now,'" O'Hair said. O'Hair hit 7-iron from 195 yards over the bunker and it bounced onto the green about 12 feet away. McDowell and Lowry both hit into the bunker, with Lowry's ball against the face of the wall that forced him to play sideways into the bunker. Both players had to settle for par, and O'Hair rolled in his...

No. 21: Daniel Berger

By PGA Tour News on Sun, Dec 10 2017 9:00 AM

THE OVERVIEW By Ben Everill, PGATOUR.COM Professional golfers have to be sure of themselves to compete with the elite and Daniel Berger is among the most confident players on the PGA TOUR. Just ask him. This is not a slight at Berger -- he has the talent to back up his bravado, as evidenced by his back-to-back wins at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and his big efforts in the Presidents Cup.   He was unlucky not to win twice last season with only an epic Jordan Spieth bunker hole-out in the playoff at the Travelers Championship cutting him down. “I played great,” Berger said afterwards. “I mean, I'm here to win tournaments. I'm not here to finish second place, so it's disappointing.” TOP 30 PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2018: We'll countdown our list with one new player each day in December. Click here for the published players. MORE: Top 30 explanation and schedule Berger grew up around sporting excellence with his father heavily involved in elite tennis and it certainly rubbed off.   He spent...

Ireland smiling at QBE Shootout

By PGA Tour News on Sat, Dec 9 2017 6:00 PM

NAPLES, Fla. – Wait. What are the rules again? At the unofficial QBE Shootout at Tiburon Golf Club, half the fun is playing three rounds of no-cut golf with a friend, and the other half is trying to remember what the format is that day, and how it works. On a blustery, rainy Saturday, the name of the game was modified alternate shot, and Ireland’s Shane Lowry and Graeme McDowell made the biggest move with a 64 to tie first-round leaders Sean O’Hair and Steve Stricker (69) at 18-under going into Sunday’s final round. “I feel like we both played a lot of alternate-shot golf growing up,” McDowell said. “I was going to say it’s a format we’re comfortable with, but I think it’s one of the hardest formats in golf, to be honest. Obviously having the modified alternate, having two goes with the tee shots, makes it a little bit more relaxing, but such a difficult format.” In modified alternate shot, both players tee off, then choose their favorite tee shot and alternate shots from there....

No. 22: Pat Perez

By PGA Tour News on Sat, Dec 9 2017 4:25 PM

THE OVERVIEW By Cameron Morfit, PGATOUR.COM Pat Perez is an overnight success story, 20 years in the making. That explanation makes as much sense as anything else when you delve into why Perez, 41, is just hitting his stride at an age when others start eyeing PGA TOUR Champions eligibility. “I'm such a different person than I was 17 years ago, even like five years ago,” Perez said after winning the CIMB Classic in Malaysia on Oct. 15, his second TOUR win in less than a year. “I'm learning how to play the game and learning how to play my own game and stay within myself and that kind of stuff. “I'm a late bloomer.” Perez seemed like a can’t-miss kid when he beat Tiger Woods by eight shots in winning the 1993 Junior World Championship at Torrey Pines. But something always got in the way, and today Perez would call that something immaturity. But the tipping point came when he underwent shoulder surgery in March of 2016. He lost his equipment contract, and when he got healthy and...
