Volume Four Hundred Seventy-Six

Tiger Watch ’16 continues.

Hittin' the LinksSpeculation continues at a fever pitch for when we will next see Tiger Woods playing competitive golf. The deadline to enter Quail Hollow has passed, but rumor has it that Team Woods has made lodging arrangements for both the Players and the Memorial. That could mean he believes he’s ready to play again, or it could mean that he has more than enough to be willing to risk a few security deposits just in case he’s ready by then.

Let’s hit the links.

Hole #1: Soaked But Celebratory
Brian Stuard notched his first PGA Tour win in the rain-shortened Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Stuard made no bogeys in the tournament, sank every putt inside 10 feet, and it still took two playoff holes to eliminate Jamie Lovemark and Byeong-Hun An. [Link]

Hole #2: Shin Win
Jenny Shin got her first LPGA victory at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout at Las Colinas. It was her 133rd start. [Link]

Hole #7: Pros Behaving Badly
Public service announcement: Don’t race golf carts. It really could be dangerous. And you might lose playing privileges at your club. PGA Tour pro Kevin Kisner got suspended for just that. But the video is pretty entertaining. [Link]

Hole #8: Happy Birthday, John Daly
John Daly turned 50 last week and became eligible for the Champions Tour. Here’s an interesting story of the time he asked Tiger Woods to have a beer with him. [Link]

Hole #9: #SB1966
Spieth, Fowler and crew have nothing on Nicklaus and Player. They did that whole spring break thing 50 years ago. [Link]
