Question of the Day
WESTWOOD ON BOARD: Lee Westwood feels he is settled in to his new life living in Florida and playing a majority of his events in America.
And on Tuesday, he had his first meeting as a member of the PGA Tour’s Player Advisory Council. Westwood was among four players who were selected by the players serving on the policy board.
“I don’t know what they’re expecting,” he said. “I don’t know what to expect. I think I’ll just sit there for a while and listen. Obviously, 20 years on the tour, I’ve seen a few things, so I might be able to comment a little bit.”
Westwood, with 38 wins worldwide and a No. 1 ranking, never served on the tournament committee in all his years on the European Tour. He said he would have served on the committee, but he was never asked.
“I don’t think I’m controversial or anything like that, but occasionally sensible,” he said. “Occasionally, I have a good idea.”
MALNATI AND MLB: As a PGA Tour rookie, Peter Malnati is taking a close look at the schedule.
The Major League Baseball schedule.
Malnati is part of a recent crop of players who have deals with MLB.com, one of the premier websites in sports. He has the logo on his golf bag, and one of the perks really caught his attention. Malnati says he gets two tickets to any game all year.
“I’m going to catch a lot of Kansas City Royals games,” said Malnati, who wore Royals colors when he won a Web.com Tour event last year.
“That’s exactly why I’m a fan,” said Malnati, who grew up in Tennessee and played golf at Missouri. “I was dating a girl from Kansas City and we got to a game and I thought, ‘This is pathetic.’ It’s a great ballpark. This team needs fans and no one is here. So I’m a die-hard Kansas City fan.”
MLB.com spokesman Matt Gould said it also has deals with Shawn Stefani, former NCAA champion Max Homa and Zack Fisher, who was medalist at Q-school last month to earn his Web.com Tour card.
