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...

Watch (at your own risk): Webb Simpson and his caddie bust a move

There are five types of guys when it comes to dancing: 1) The one who really can dance well; 2) The one who thinks he can but can't; 3) The one who knows he can't but doesn't care; 4) The one who will only get out on the dance floor if he's had a few drinks; and 5) The one who won't step on a dance floor even if lady friend or two are pulling him out there.

World’s Longest Golf Club Record Broken… Again

Well, that didn’t take long. Just last month, Karsten Maas made his way into the record books when he created the world’s longest usable golf club, measuring in at 14 feet, 5 inches long. Unfortunately, his few weeks of glory were cut short by the man who holds the most world records: more than 500. Ashrita Furman broke Maas’ record by making a club that’s 18 feet, 5 inches...

2014 Ryder Cup: Day 3 Studs & Duds

Europeans, apparently, are not morning people. But boy, when they wake up, they can play some golf. Their late surges on all three days of the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles propelled Team Europe to a 16.5-11.5 victory, its third straight triumph over Team USA and eighth in the past 10 events. Europe obviously contained more studs than duds on its roster this year, but there were both...

Ryder Cup Notebook: Gleneagles Filled To The Brim

GLENEAGLES, Scotland — Gleneagles is in the middle of nowhere — and I really do mean the middle of nowhere. It is serviced by roads so narrow that two cars going in opposite directions have to slow almost to a halt to pass one another. That is a problem because, for the most part, buses are the only way in or out of this place. And yet, by the time Webb Simpson hit the opening...
