ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “The way I've been putting really I wouldn't call it well. I'd say it was pretty easy to transition. I haven't been comfortable standing over it for a little while and so I just wanted something that's a new look and the bigger a deal that's made out of it the more bothersome that is for me. It's not really that big of a deal and every guy switches putters every single week. It's nothing new. Just a new look for me for the time being.”

BRAIN TEASER: Many people know that Tiger Woods has 14 majors and ranks second only to Jack Nicklaus’ 18. Can you name the player with the third most majors in his career? HINT: He won 11 in total.

DRESS FORE SUCCESS: Willy Wilcox has been named brand ambassador for Jack Nicklaus Apparel’s NICKLAUS Collection. Wilcox has already made a name for himself in his young career with his hole-in-one on No. 17 at 2016 The Players Championship. He shot a career-low 59 at the Web.com Tour’s Utah Championship.

“We are thrilled to have Willy Wilcox as a Jack Nicklaus brand ambassador,” said Oscar Feldenkreis, CEO and president of Perry Ellis International. “Willy is a talented young player who has the perfect blend of style and performance, which makes him the ideal representative for this collection.”

“I am excited and humbled to be wearing apparel that bears the Jack Nicklaus name,” said Wilcox. “The NICKLAUS Collection’s golf apparel looks and feels great and is designed in such a way that I am able to perform at the highest level. The clothes I wear on and off the course are very important to me and as soon as I had a chance to review the NICKLAUS Collection I knew it was exactly what I was looking for.  I am honored to be on board.”

LOOKING FOR A SPARK: For just the third time since he turned professional in 2012, Jordan Spieth is using something other than a Scotty Cameron 009 prototype putter for a competitive round. READ MORE>>>

FAST START IN SICILY: Sebastian Soderberg and Michael Hoey will take a share of the lead into day two of The Rocco Forte Open - Verdura, Sicily after firing rounds of 61 at Verdura Golf Club. Swede Soderberg set the target in the morning as he flirted with a historic 59 with an eagle and eight birdies to get to ten under. That looked as if it would hold the solo lead but Northern Irishman Hoey had other ideas and made ten birdies to join Soderberg in posting a career-best tournament round. READ MORE>>>

MAJOR TIME AGAIN: Scott McCarron eagled the par-5 18th hole for a 7-under 65 and a share of the opening-round lead Thursday in the first of the PGA Tour Champions' five majors. Lee Janzen, Jeff Sluman and Miguel Angel Jimenez joined McCarron atop the leaderboard at Greystone. READ MORE>>>

FLYING HIGH: One day after Lexi Thompson parachuted onto the first tee at the Kingsmill Championship, she landed at the top of the leaderboard after an opening 6-under 65. Thompson, still riding a high from her bucket-list adventure, birdied six of the first seven holes on the front side (her back nine) of the River Course. She leads a trio of American players at 5 under, including Gerina Piller, Brittany Lincicome and Angel Yin. “The only way I would jump out of a perfectly good plane is with a SEAL on my back,” said Thompson. “There was nothing like it. Words can’t describe the feeling. It was just like a feeling of freedom, jumping out.” READ MORE>>>
