Finchem says he 'whiffed' by not protesting Ryder Cup change

DORAL, Fla. (AP) PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said Sunday he ''whiffed'' when the PGA of America told him about changes to Ryder Cup qualifying by not protesting that the fall start to the season would not count toward the standings. The Ryder Cup Task Force, which included five active players among 11 members, decided to only count PGA Tour events that begin next January....

Power Rankings - Northern Trust Open

So there I am, cruising along the winding, beautiful Pacific Coast Highway, sun setting on my right over the dirty window sill of my tiny hybrid, when it hits me. No, Californians don't all drive hybrids like some cliche, vegan stereotype - I'm just cheap. Sue me. Actually, please don't, again, the cheap thing. Anyway, have you ever been in a position to get everything you want in...

Simpson has short putter, no expectations and share of lead

HONOLULU (AP) Webb Simpson is one of those players who won't break anything that doesn't need fixing. But with change on the horizon because of a new rule that will outlaw the anchored stroke he uses for his belly putter, he opted for a radical solution. He broke his putter. ''Snapped it over my knee,'' Simpson said. ''It's a thick, heavy shaft, so I gave it all I had over my knee...

Golf Capsules

HONOLULU (AP) Webb Simpson and Matt Kuchar made enough birdies on the back nine Friday to build a little separation and share the lead in the Sony Open. Kuchar played bogey-free in a round of 7-under 63. He lost a chance to add one more birdie when he drove into a fairway bunker and narrowly cleared the lip. Simpson reached the par-5 18th green in two for a two-putt birdie with...

Simpson feels like a rookie again with short putter

HONOLULU (AP) Webb Simpson had a hard time sleeping on the eve of his first PGA Tour event of the new year. He sounded like a rookie, not a former U.S. Open champion and member of the last two Ryder Cup teams. That's about what he felt like with a conventional putter in his hand. One year from now, Simpson won't be able to play with the belly putter he has used since 2004 because...

Paul Casey, Webb Simpson tied for early lead at calm Sony Open

  Paul Casey made nine birdies on a day that felt like paradise at the Sony Open and was tied for the early lead with Webb Simpson at 8-under-par 62. Casey is playing Waialae for the first time in a decade. He typically is in the Middle East this time of the year. But he gave up his European Tour membership and decided to start his year in Hawaii. So far, it looks like a smart choice...

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...

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...
