Here's a general thread for pro golf talk
Yesterday word #1 Jason Day capped off an impressive wire to wire win at the Players Championship, his 3rd win of the year. It's been quite a run for the Australian-Ohioan, who dating back to last summer has won 7 out of 17 tournaments he's played in, including a major, 2 FedEx Cup events, a WGC event, and now the "fifth" major. I'd love to see him pick up another major or two this summer.
Masters 4th place finisher Matt Kuchar now has a young fan for life. After sinking a hole-in-one on the 16th hole Sunday at Augusta, Kuchar strolled onto the green, reached into the cup and retrieved his ball, promptly autographed it, blew on it and handed it to a beaming 8 year-old Bradenton, Florida boy in the green-side gallery.
Masters Champion Sergio Garcia, was an aspiring young golfer in 1997, enrolled at The David Leadbetter Golf Academy in Bradenton (now called IMG Academy), won his first major tournament of his ascending career, winning the 'David Leadbetter International Golf Academy International' junior tournament at the Arnold Palmer-designed Legacy Golf Club in Lakewood Ranch. Many PGA greats are the product of IMG Academy and many return in their off season to hone up on their fundamentals.
Urban Meyer, his coaching staff and other Ohio State notables, such as Archie Griffin will be making their annual trek to golf in the annual celebrity tournament at the Legacy Golf Club this coming month.

Yesterday it was announced that the PGA Championship will be moving to May starting in 2019, with The Players Championship being moved back to March. This is partially to avoid future conflicts with the Olympics and partially to make it possible to move the FedEx Cup Playoff events into August to avoid competing directly with the NFL (something that hasn't been announced yet, but definitely hinted at.) It will also open up opportunities for courses in the Sunbelt states to host the PGA.
Having the PGA become the 2nd major of the year instead of being "glory's last shot" will take some getting used to, though overall I like the idea of having the 4 majors in consecutive months, with the unofficial "5th major" preceding them.

Trump is Making America Great Again. 8 years of Obama = 0 Majors won by Tiger Woods It's great watching Tiger win again. Thank's Trump for MAGA. Now get MJ to come back to the NBA and you will have truly Made America Great Again. I had a lot of fun watching Tiger over the weekend.
