Na Yeon Choi finished last year by winning the LPGA Titleholders and buying a new house at Isleworth outside Orlando. She was No. 2 on the money list with nearly $2 million. She was No. 2 in the world. She was the U.S. Women's Open champion.
Even with the PGA Tour starting a new season in October, and big golf being played around the world, Tiger Woods said he was pleasantly surprised to draw another big cast of stars to his holiday tournament in California.
Another rain delay cut short some exceptional golf Friday in the Presidents Cup.

We're all tied up at the Masters.
Snedeker said he thought the whole thing was pretty cool.
"I haven't seen anything like this," said Brandt Snedeker, among those who opened with a 68. "This is completely new to me _ foreign to see a 2-iron going 300 yards. You have got to be wary of how you're shaping your golf ball, and what shot selections you're using on the greens."
