Masters field growing, perhaps too much for Augusta National

  Matt Every needed a victory at Bay Hill to get into the Masters, and he was only being honest when he shared what he was thinking as Henrik Stenson faced a birdie putt on the final hole to force a playoff. ''You're already in. Miss it. I need to get in.'' Augusta National would have had reason to root for Stenson. It has managed to keep the field at the Masters under 100 players...

Augusta National getting too crowded for its liking

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Matt Every needed a victory at Bay Hill to get into the Masters, and he was only being honest when he shared what he was thinking as Henrik Stenson faced a birdie putt on the final hole to force a playoff.

Every heads back to the Masters with a better game

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) The putt was from 18 feet on the final hole at Bay Hill, with the tournament riding on the outcome. The ball caught the left edge of the cup and disappeared, the gallery erupted with cheers and the winner gave an abbreviated fist pump filled with raw emotion. There was one big difference Sunday. Matt Every was wearing a blue shirt, not red. Every won the Arnold...

Hoffmann takes 3-shot lead into weekend at Bay Hill

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Harris English knew what he was facing before he hit his opening tee shot of the second round.

Valspar: De Jonge takes one-shot lead at Innisbrook

  Brendon de Jonge rolled in two long putts on his way to a 2-under 69 for the 36-hole lead Friday in the Valspar Championship. Halfway home, it felt like a long way to go considering all the players behind him. The Copperhead course at Innisbrook is such a demanding test that the players who made the cut on the number were still only seven shots behind. De Jonge rolled in a 50...

Innisbrook makes up for bad spot on schedule for Valspar Championship

  The Valspar Championship wouldn't seem to have a lot going for it. It has the worst spot on the calendar for the Florida Swing, the one event where it makes sense for the top players to take a break. The Honda Classic is the home event of so many players living in the West Palm Beach area, and it's followed by a World Golf Championship at Doral. Arnold Palmer's tournament is next...

A good course trumps a bad spot on the calendar

PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) The Valspar Championship is the one week in the Florida swing where it makes sense to take a week off. Some players can't stay away from Innisbrook, long regarded as among the best tournament courses in the Sunshine State. That explains why the field is unusually strong for such an awkward spot on the calendar. Henrik Stenson is playing for the first time...

Justin Rose’s unbelievable shot at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai (VIDEO)

YouTube Justin Rose didn’t end up winning the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai Sunday, but he (a) hit the shot of the day and (b) made me wish it was still golf season in Michigan.  You see, I have found myself in Rose’s predicament more times than I wish to count (each round).  You would have thought he was playing in the forest.
