ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Actually found a new partner in Wheaties. I'm going to be on the cover of 4 million Wheaties boxes later this year, which is really cool, Breakfast of Champions. You grow up seeing your favorite athletes on these boxes and used to walk down the aisle of the grocery store whenever my mom used to drag me along and always want to see who was on the cover and to actually be on one is a pretty special dream come true.”

BRAIN TEASER: Who did Sergio Garcia defeat in a playoff to win the 2016 AT&T Byron Nelson?

TEAM BUILDING: PXG announced LPGA Tour professional Austin Ernst as the newest addition to its roster of its team. Earnst has had PXG irons in play since mid-2016 – long before being offered an equipment deal. She has recorded three top ten finishes this season, including a second-place finish at the Kia Classic. “PXG has made a huge impact on the LPGA Tour in the last year and I am ecstatic to now be an official member of the PXG Troops,” Ernst said. “I’ve been making moves up the leaderboard this season, and I feel more confident than ever that I will reach the top with PXG clubs in my bag.”

“We’re in a different business than the other manufactures. When it comes to product development, it doesn’t matter how much we spend. It doesn’t matter how long it takes or how many iterations. What matters is performance,” said Bob Parsons, Company founder. “When exceptional players like Austin hit our clubs and say ‘wow’, we know we have landed on something special,” he continued. “I’m thrilled that Austin has already found success on tour using our equipment and look forward to counting her among our already stellar lineup of professionals.”

THE FUTURE? Vice Golf is branching out to offer a full-feature carry bag direct to the consumers. READ MORE>>>

Sergio Garcia claimed the 2016 AT&T Byron Nelson for the second time in his career with a par at the first extra hole. He beat Brooks Koepka, who made a double-bogey in the playoff hole.
