One of the most gorgeous tee shots at Pebble Beach is one that hardly anyone hits.
At least for now.
Pebble Beach officials were rebuilding the ninth green last year when they discovered from photos of the 1929 U.S. Amateur a tiny sliver of land just to the right of the green. It was a tee box of the par-4 10th hole along the ocean. The tee box never went away, rather it was buried...

George McNeill hit six shots at Sea Island to finish off his 8-under 62 and take a one-shot lead in the McGladrey Classic on Friday.
The first round could not be completed because of a two-hour fog delay on Thursday. McNeil had an 18-foot birdie putt on the eighth when darkness stopped play. He said he couldn't read the putt, so he decided to wait until the morning. He missed...

Heavy fog allowed Brian Gay a quick nap, and he no longer felt so sluggish after travelling halfway around the world from Shanghai to Sea Island for the McGladrey Classic on Thursday.
Gay had enough energy to make eight birdies on his way to a 7-under 63, giving him a share of the lead with Briny Baird among early starters. The opening round could not be completed because of a fog...

Golf isn't always the most entertaining sport to watch on television. The standard sequence of driving the ball off the tee into the fairway, knocking it closer to the green, chipping it closer to the hole, and putting the ball in can become robotic.However, it's spectacles like this one seen on the par-3 16th hole at TPC Scottsdale during the Waste Management Phoenix Open...
In case you missed what happened Sunday at the Humana Challenge, Phil Mickelson talked a few minutes behind the 18th green about his dislike of paying higher taxes and, oh, by the way: Brian Gay won a three-man playoff.
So if you're scoring headlines at home: IRS 1, Gay 0.
On the other hand, Gay will gladly cash the $1,008,000 check and, of course, pay less in taxes than Mickelson...
The third tournament of the year on the PGA TOUR, the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation, concluded with three-man playoff between Brian Gay, Charles Howell III and David Lingmerth with Gay winning on the second hole over Howell. Lingmerth had bogeyed the first playoff hole to drop out of contention. Gay, who had started the day six strokes back of 54-hole...
Brian Gay was the last man standing at the Humana Challenge on Sunday, shooting a final-round 63 to get into a three-man playoff and then winning with birdie on the second playoff hole.
Here are Five Things to take away from Sunday's dramatic round that saw Scott Stallings lose a five-shot lead:
1. Call it a comeback
Brian Gay missed a 3-1/2-foot birdie putt on the final...
Charlie Beljan went against a doctor's recommendation that he not play golf, and he's glad he did.
One day after Beljan endured a panic attack that caused a spike in blood pressure and made him fear for his life, he managed just fine Saturday in the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. He had a 1-under 71 that gave him a two-shot lead going into the final round...

Caddie Kip Henley scares an alligator near Brian Gay's ball at the 2012 RBC Heritage.

During the 2012 RBC heritage, a caddie went "above and beyond his call of duty" by fighting off a 6 foot alligator for an entire 10 minutes! While stealing the spotlight from Brian Gay, Kip successfully scared away the gator and sent him back into the water to make room for Brian's next shot right by lake on par 5 15th hole. I don't know who's more courageous...
I know, I know, most "alligator on golf course" videos are extremely lame, but not when it's a PGA Tour tournament and the caddies are trying to scare one away so that a pro can hit his shot.
That's what happened at Harbour Town on Thursday as Brian Gay was trying to play his shot with an alligator sneaking around near the bank.
Caddies are tough people, but...
Whatever caddie Kip Henley earns, golfer Brian Gay should double it. Gay’s ball on the par-5 15th hole was near the water at the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, S.C., Thursday, and he had a tough time hitting his shot because of a slight nuisance in the way. Yup, an alligator was on the bank and Henley had to push it away using a rake.
Gay finished the round at five over par and...
The first round of the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina got crashed by a not invited guest. A 10-foot alligator made an appearance on the 10th hole as golfer Brian Gay was getting ready to play the hole. Brian’s caddy was the hero of the day and somehow pushed the alligator back into the water hazard with a rake. Kudos to Kip Henley, the bravest caddy we know.
Hitting a ball near a water hazard in Hilton Head, South Carolina, site of this week’s RBC Heritage, is a dicey proposition, as golfer Brian Gay found out when his third shot landed near a pond on the par-5 15th hole, and a resident alligator came up on land to see what all the fuss was about. Gay wasn’t down with messing with the 10-foot gator, but his caddie, Kip Henley,...
((pgatour.com))Watching this video, the first question that popped into our head was "Is he just playing through?" the second being "If you hit the gator, do you get a free round?"Take a look at what happened in Thursday's opening round of the Heritage Golf Tournament in Hilton Head, South Carolina.Golfer Brian Gay is playing hole #15 when his drive goes a...
It was one thing to have a difficult shot. It was another thing entirely to face a life-threatening situation. But fortunately, Brian Gay has a caddie, Kip Henley, who isn't afraid to challenge an alligator.
"They won't come at you when they're turned the other way," Henley said.
Ah, could he guarantee that?
"Well, no, I can't guarantee it."...

BUMP AND RUN
At the opening round of the 2012 RBC Heritage, caddie Kip Henley went way beyond the call of duty when he scared off a 6-foot long alligator near Brian Gay's ball on the par-5 15th hole. At Thursday afternoon's encounter in Hilton Head, S.C., the golfer actually ran into a pair of gators— the large one had a little companion— sunning themselves near the water hazard...
So in an attempt to inject a bit more life and interest into tournaments, and because we're all inveterate gamblers who are one bad card from being out on the streets, Jay Busbee, Jonathan Wall and I are playing a golf version of a football suicide pool: We each pick one golfer per tournament and see how they do against each other, straight up. Victory over the other guy gets...
