On a night of celebration, one of the embarrassing moments at the World Golf Hall of Fame induction ceremony was early in the program, when Hall of Fame members in attendance were recognized. The introductions didn't take very long.
Castro hit shots to tap-in range on the famed 17th and 18th holes on his way to a 9-under 63. That tied the course record held by Greg Norman and Fred Couples, and gave him a three-shot lead over Rory McIlroy.
The Players Championship should consider changing the name of its course to the TPC Mystery.
Padraig Harrington will try anything that makes him play better golf, even a method of putting he believes should be outlawed.
Augusta National kept Tiger Woods in the Masters on Saturday, saying it would be "grossly unfair" to disqualify him for a rules violation that club officials didn't immediately recognize.
Six former Masters winners and another quintet who each won at least one of the three other major championships won't be around for the weekend at Augusta.
They came throughout the day, a steady flow of camera-bearing patrons, all wanting to pay homage to one of the greatest shots in Masters history.
Gene Sarazen hit "the shot heard `round the world," holing out with a 4-wood from 235 yards in the 15th fairway at Augusta National in 1935. He put a 2 on his card, made up a three-shot deficit with one swing, and then beat Craig Wood in a playoff the next day.
An area to the right of Augusta National Golf Club’s 10th fairway will be a popular spot to visit when practice rounds for the 77th Masters Tournament begin. It’s the site of the latest addition to the tournament’s long list of famous shots.
Arnold Palmer reached for a black pen and a blank piece of paper, and for a moment, he went back in time to the first grade.
Bubba Watson held his right arm out to his side and hung his head as his tee shot sailed toward the woods to the right of the 10th fairway at Augusta National. For a moment, it looked as though he would be the latest victim of what perennially is the toughest hole at the Masters.
The 93 players who have qualified and are expected to compete in the 77th Masters, to be played April 11-14 at Augusta National Golf Club. Players listed in only first category for which they are eligible. One spot still open for the winner of the Texas Open if not eligible.
"It's very unusual for an individual spat to get out," Padraig Harrington said. "There's no winners when that gets out there. I think when players have an issue, they find things. So if you don't like somebody, you read things in, and you make more of a situation than there is."
Padraig Harrington smiled when told that Northern Ireland could have its own team.
