Question of the Day
Campbell had to qualify for the U.S. Open at Pinehurst, and Waite had nowhere to stay. Foster was caddying in 2005 for Darren Clarke, who had to withdraw because of an injury. Waite wound up taking Foster’s place in a house he had booked with four other caddies. It turned out to be a pretty good week.
TIGER’S NIECE: Cheyenne Woods is following in her uncle’s footsteps _ at least for management.
Excel Sports Management says the niece of Tiger Woods has joined Mark Steinberg’s stable of clients. Steinberg has represented Woods since 1999, first at IMG before joining Excel last summer.
Cheyenne Woods was an All-American at Wake Forest, where she set the lowest scoring average in school history and won the ACC Championship by seven shots. She graduated with a degree in communications.
“She had an outstanding career at Wake Forest and has the chance to be a major star on the women’s golf scene,” Steinberg said.
She will seek sponsor exemptions this summer and go to LPGA qualifying school later this year.
USGA LOVES L.A.: Golf fans in Los Angeles are getting the two biggest amateur tournaments just one month apart in 2017.
The USGA announced that Riviera Country Club will host the U.S. Amateur on Aug. 14-20, with nearby Bel-Air Country Club also being used during the two rounds of qualifying to reach the 64 players in match play.
A month later, the Walker Cup goes to Los Angeles Country Club (North Course). All three courses are within about 10 miles of each other.
Riviera, site of the Northern Trust Open on the PGA Tour, will become only the 11th course to host the U.S. Open, U.S. Senior Open and U.S. Amateur.
MARINO RETURNS: After four months, Steve Marino is ready to get back to golf next week at the Memorial.
Marino had surgery last October to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, and then played three straight weeks to start the 2012 season without mixed results and too much pain. He missed the cut in Honolulu, tied for 19th at the Humana Challenge and tied for 66th at Torrey Pines.
