In case you were wondering what Tiger thinks of John Daly being allowed to use a cart here at Bethpage Black for the #PGAChampionship, here’s my question and Tiger’s answer:

Q. ...”how much does stamina play on this golf course? And do you prepare any differently for this course? And part two, your thoughts on John Daly being allowed to take a cart?”

TIGER WOODS: “Well, the stamina part, this is a bigger golf course. There's a lot of property and -- not -- I wouldn't say not necessarily a lot of movement in features, but there's enough. There's definitely going to be a component to stamina as the week goes on. Four days over a tough championship that is mentally and physically taxing takes its toll.

As far as J.D. taking a cart, well, I walked with a broken leg.”

Enough said!

In ANGC Chairman Fred Ridley's annual press conference today:

My Question: "Mr. Chairman, were you surprised by the success of the inaugural Women's Amateur and what may be next in the club's efforts to grow the game?"
CHAIRMAN FRED S. RIDLEY: "You know, when you plan something like that, it's hard to really predict what's going to happen.
On paper, I felt that we knew what was going to happen. I mean, it was scheduled; our staff, working with our partner, Champions Retreat, and our sponsors, and everyone involved, did a masterful job executing on our plan.
What I'm not sure I fully anticipated was the emotional response, which was something that I'm still really glowing about; and that is that, of everybody involved, certainly of the players, who had an opportunity to compete on a stage unlike any they had ever competed on; but beyond that, and certainly their families and their friends and everyone involved with the players; but beyond that, I think I was really heartened by our staff and the way that our staff really was motivated and inspired by this effort. I think it made us a better organization.
I'm also very proud to hear so many members who have come up to me and say how proud they are, and to say that they have never been prouder to be a member of Augusta National.
So it's those emotional, those subjective elements, that I'm not sure I fully anticipated, but it's been something that we've been very pleased about. It was an exciting celebration, exciting golf, elite athletes showing what they can do. It was a Sunday like, a Masters like Sunday, even though it was on Saturday, but it certainly had that feel.
As to what we might do next, I'm still thinking about last Saturday, so I'll start thinking about that next week."

Who are you picking to win The Masters? My 3 picks: Rory McIlroy is primed to capture the career Grand Slam this, his 5th attempt, coming in with renewed confidence after winning The Players and with more consistent putting after working with Brad Faxon; Justin Rose, with two runner-up finishes here & five top ten finishes so far this season including a win at the Farmers Insurence Open, is tough as nails and has shown he has the game and mental toughness to win here; and Rickie Fowler, runner-up here last year, a winner in Phoenix, T2 at the Honda Classic, Rickie is ready to strut his stuff and win a Green Jacket and his first Major Title!

Curtis Martin, one of the best running backs ever, survived a violent childhood and chose football over the alternative. His story is one of hope, inspiration and greatness. The NFL Hall of Famer donates 22-25% of every check he earns as a successful businessman, to charity. When he was playing in the NFL, he told me he donated 12-15% of his earnings to charity. Curtis feels he’s lucky to be alive and he’s living a remarkable life, giving back. It was my honor to introduce him and all the incredible athletes and personalities today at the #BrainInjuryAwareness Celebrity Sports Forum, organized by Liz Giordano & the #HeadInjuryAssociation

Irish eyes are smiling and all of golf may be grinning as a more mature Rory McIlroy may just be getting started. The Northern Irishman won his first The Players Championship title on Sunday, a year after his last victory, the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational.

With Marian McDowell, Graeme McDowell’s mum. Graeme tripled the par 5, 4th when his tee shot hit a rock in a creek and went out of bounds, and he later chunked one from the rough into the bunker. He’s trying to qualify for the Open Championship in his hometown of Royal Portrush. The highest three finishers in the top 10 who already have not qualified for July’s Open Championship, will get in. We’re pulling for him!
