There’s just one week left of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. Despite missing the cut twice in the FedEx Cup Playoffs Jordan Spieth remains in atop the standings, but Jason Day is closing in.
And in Germany, a possible breach of etiquette lead to a fired up U.S. team rallying from four points back in the Solheim Cup.
Let’s hit the links.
Hole #1: Olé, Olé, O Croissants!
The U.S. Women rallied from a 10-6 deficit and won 8½ points in singles to claim the Solheim Cup in a stunning victory in Germany. A non-concession in four-balls was a motivating factor for the Americans and left Suzann Pettersen playing the part of Natasha Fatale. Don’t mess with the U.S. [Link]
Hole #2: Not Just His Day, Maybe His Year
There’s a new sheriff in town… For the last three months, Jordan Spieth has seemed to have the player of the year race wrapped up. Now Jason Day has won a major, two playoff events, a WGC title, the Canadian Open, and moved to world #1 in that time period. The question may not be resolved after all. [Link]
Hole #3: Tiger’s Back
Tiger Wood’s announced Friday that he has undergone another back surgery and plans to return to the PGA TOUR early next year. Sorry Fry’s Open. The question is, after all the surgery and swing changes, can he return to anything like his old form? [Link]

Hole #7: Now That’s Pressure
Larry David says that Jordan Spieth is facing some real pressure in his future. [Link]
Hole #8: No Respect
