Rebuilt green leads to rediscovery of old tee at Pebble Beach

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...

Caddy face-plants while trying to race brother

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...

Mickelson handles uproar with humor

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...

When Alligators Attack! (Caddie Edition)

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.

Caddie takes on gator at Heritage

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?
