Day and Tringale open 3-shot lead at Franklin Templeton Shootout

NAPLES, Fla. -- After a blistering first round with teammate Cameron Tringale, Jason Day thought if they could get to 25 under, that's ''pretty good scoring.'' That's what they did. Day and Tringale shot an 8-under 64 on Friday in modified alternate-shot play to reach 25-under 119 and increase their lead to three strokes in the Franklin Templeton Shootout. Day and Tringale opened...

More seeds for a global tour in golf

The PGA Tour has small circuits in Latin America, Canada and China. Commissioner Tim Finchem spoke in 2010 about golf heading toward a ''world tour,'' even though he wasn't sure what it would look like or when it would all come together. It's worth paying attention to the activity of players over the last month. Brandt Snedeker was in Japan for the Bridgestone Open. Jordan Spieth...

9 Best Amateur Golf Videos Of 2014

Maybe it was the explosion in use of GoPro cameras. Or just the sheer fact that more and more people walk around with a camera (phone) in their pocket every day. Whatever it is, it seems as if there was a deluge of amateur golf videos in 2014, many of them quite good. The trick shot phenomenon reached a new level this year, so that helped in supplying YouTube with content. But many...

Golf Capsules

SHANGHAI (AP) Graeme McDowell likes a tough golf course, and Sheshan International was perfect for him Thursday. He opened with seven birdies in 12 holes and then hung on for a 5-under 67 and a two-shot lead after the first round of the HSBC Champions. The course course was tougher than ever with ankle-deep rough and fairways that are not nearly as wide. That didn't seem to bother...

Brandt Snedeker Live-Tweeted A Brutal Experience On A Plane

United Airlines and PGA Tour players have not gotten along of late. We all remember the airline losing Rory McIlroy’s clubs on the way to the Irish Open, but luckily United redeemed itself by locating them in time for him to tee off. Unfortunately on Monday, there was no redemption story for poor Brandt Snedeker. Just a whole lot of tweeting. Snedeker was aboard a United Airlines...

Watch: Brandt Snedeker goes skeet shooting with a 4-iron

Six-time PGA Tour winner Brandt Snedeker decided to do a little skeet shooting in the woods.  But instead of using a shotgun, Snedeker shot at the clay pigeon with his 4-iron. “Shooting skeet was getting to easy with a gun. So I stepped it up a notch,” he wrote on Twitter. The post Watch: Brandt Snedeker goes skeet shooting with a 4-iron appeared first on Sports Glory.

World’s Longest Golf Club Record Broken… Again

Golf Treasures: The Mona Lisa Of Golf

When it comes to golf artwork, there’s one painting to rule them all: “The Bunker.” It was painted in 1894 by British painter Charles Edmund Brock, and is known as one of the most renowned golf paintings in the world. In fact, it’s so famous that some call it the “Mona Lisa of golf paintings.”  Part of what makes “The Bunker” so valuable is the fact that Brock rarely...

Brandt Snedeker Shoots Skeet With His 4-Iron

Snedeker can only hope for Ryder Cup pick

NORTON, Mass. (AP) Brandt Snedeker believes he is playing well enough to contribute in the Ryder Cup. He can only wait to see if U.S. captain Tom Watson agrees.
