Tiger will be fine. He's 5 or 6 years younger than Mickelson who has won tourneys and majors in his 40s. These guys have some serious knowledge, skill and experience.

Tiger is also the most motivated guy you will find in sports.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think over the last 20 years only about six golfers over the age of 40 have won a Major. And the global field of excellent golfers will make it that much harder for Tiger.

Mickelson is skipping the US open to attend something at his daughter's school in California.

Good on him, I sez. When his life reaches it's end, that will have been a hell of a lot more important than yet another US open, never mind the absurdity of chasing little balls through the sand ... err, grass.

Why the heck do some of the guys reporting on a golfers shot whisper? I have never been able to understand that. Is it some kind of unwritten rule?

Jason Day is not having a good one - day that is.

The guys that aren't whispering were just saying that there are more amateurs under par today then pros.

Stacy Lewis wins LPGA's Portland Classic, gives earnings to Harvey relief efforts in hometown

PORTLAND, Ore. — Stacy Lewis won for Houston.
Lewis ended a long winless streak Sunday at Cambia Portland Classic, with her $195,000 in winnings going to the relief efforts in her hometown area. Her two biggest sponsors also stepped up, with KPMG matching her donation and Marathon Oil kicking in $1 million.
“Probably was more pressure, to be honest,” Lewis said. “Honestly, I think that’s what helped me through the week, just knowing people wanted me to do well. People wanted me to win this for Houston. To do it when I added pressure to myself is a pretty good, pretty cool deal.”
The 32-year-old Lewis, from The Woodlands just north of Houston, won her 12th LPGA Tour title and first since June 2014, ending a frustrating stretch that included 12 runner-up finishes. She closed with a 3-under 69 to hold off In Gee Chun by a stroke at tree-lined Columbia Edgewater.
“Just kind of handed over control and said, ‘Take me. Take me to the finish line. Let me know what happens, God,”’ Lewis said. “It was just amazing how when you let go of the control like that how great you can play.”
Lewis embraced and kissed husband Gerrod Chadwell, the University of Houston women’s golf coach, on the 18th green. She didn’t know he had made the trip to Oregon until he appeared on the green — after hiding out in the Golf Channel tower during the round.
“I was fine until he showed up, and then I started crying,” Lewis said. “You go through all the emotions of finishing second when sometimes it’s your fault and sometimes it’s not, and things just don’t seem to ever go your way and you get really frustrated at times. He went through all of that with me, and it was probably as hard on him as it was on me. So just to have him here and get to share the win with him was pretty special.”
Lewis parred the final 11 holes. She got up-and-down from off the green on the par-4 17th and reached the green on the par-4 18th from a fairway bunker to set up her winning two-putt.
“I kind of resigned to the fact that whatever was going to happen was going to happen,” Lewis said. “I just needed to commit to my golf shots and hit them. I pulled off a great up-and-down on 17 and probably hit one of shots of my life on 18.”
Chun also parred the final two holes in a 66.
Lewis finished at 20-under 268 after opening with rounds of 70, 64 and 65 to take a three-stroke lead into the final round. She also broke through in Portland after finishing second twice — two strokes behind Suzann Pettersen in 2013 and four shots behind Canadian Brooke Henderson last year.
On Sunday, she birdied four of the first seven holes, and made the turn four strokes ahead of Chun.
Chun cut the lead to two with birdies at the par-5 10th and 12th. Chun missed a short birdie putt at the par-4 14th, and pulled to within a stroke with a birdie at the par-3 16th.
Perhaps the biggest hole of the day for Lewis came at the difficult 17th when she hit her approach over the green and saved par after chipping 7 feet past the hole.
“I hit a really good chip,” Lewis said. “I knew I was going to have at least a 5-footer, and just hit one of the best putts I’ve hit on that back nine.”
Chun missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the hole.
“It was a great round today,” Chun said. “But Stacy’s play was good, too. I really enjoy playing with Stacy. I know Stacy have a little hard time before, so I want to give her a big congratulations.”
The South Korean player was bogey-free the final 53 holes.
Brittany Altomare (69) and Moriya Jutanugarn (72) tied for third at 14 under.
Ai Miyazato shot a 67 to tie for fifth at 13 under in the Japanese star’s final U.S. start. The 2010 Portland winner plans to retire after The Evian Championship in two weeks in France.
“It’s been a tremendous week for me,” Miyazato said. “On the last hole, I got really emotional ... I have so many great memories of this tournament. This is my favourite city forever now.”
Henderson, trying to win for the third straight year, had a 70 to tie for 15th at 10 under. The 19-year-old from Smiths Falls, Ont., had an eagle and three birdies in a four-hole stretch, but finished with a triple bogey on 18.
Hamilton’s Alena Sharp (73) was 6 under while Maude-Aimee Leblanc (72) of Sherbrooke, Que., was 2 over.

Brooke Henderson 1st Canadian woman in 45 years to win national golf title



Brooke Henderson was reminded all week of what was at stake at the CP Women's Open.

She knew about the 45-year Canadian victory drought at the tournament, the pressure of playing on home soil, the list of the LPGA Tour's finest players who were nipping at her heels.

Henderson wasn't fazed by any of it. She was aggressive from the start of Sunday's final round and played like someone on the chase instead of in the lead.

It was a plan that worked to perfection at the Wascana Country Club as Henderson rolled to a four-shot victory over American Angel Yin.


"Henderson raised her arms in the air in victory and hugged her sister Brittany, who was on her bag all week. Their ecstatic father, Dave, ran on to the green and doused them in champagne.

The crowd started belting O Canada as Henderson was mobbed by friends, family and other players.

"Ten minutes from when I hit my second shot in on 18 to when I made that putt and when the celebrations all happened, those are the things that I'll remember forever," Henderson said."

And she's only 20 years old. Well done, Brooke. Well done.

She's also very attractive. I hope that she makes a gazillion dollars worth of endorsements and that it doesn't ruin her life on the process.

An avid golf fan wants an eye for an eye after being blinded by a wayward shot at the Ryder Cup in Paris.
Corine Remande, 49, was hit in the eye by an errant drive from Brooks Koepka on the sixth hole at Le Golf National.
Now, the disabled duffer is considering legal action after being told by doctors she has lost vision in her right eye.

The European Tour said in a statement on Tuesday: “We have been in communication with the family involved, starting with the immediate on-course treatment and thereafter to provide support, helping with the logistics of repatriation, including providing a transfer for the family from Paris to Lyon. We will continue to offer support for as long as necessary.
“It is distressing to hear that someone might suffer long-term consequences from a ball strike.”
According to the French media, Remande blamed Ryder Cup organizers for the lack of protection on the course.
Tour organizers said that “ball strikes are an occasional hazard for spectators” but are “extremely rare.”
Corine Remande is going to sue organizers of the Ryder Cup after she was struck by a wayward ball. She is now blind in her right eye.
Remande traveled from Egypt to France with her husband to attend the biennial showdown between the U.S. and Europe.
Koepka apologized to Remande following the incident.
She said that she suffered from “fracture of the right socket and the explosion of the eyeball”.
“Quite clearly, there is responsibility on the part of the organizers,’ Remande told AFP. “Officials did not shout any warning as the player’s ball went into the crowd.”
She said she has nothing against Koepka.
