ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “It is a big goal of mine to make it on that team. I'm a member at Liberty National. I love the golf course. I love playing golf in the metropolitan area and would love nothing more than to be on that team and continue the streak. I've got six events to make this team. I believe that our team, American golf team for the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cups are some of the strongest we've had. We have a lot of really good young talent, a lot of really great personalities that bring out the best in each other, and I would love to be a part of that.”

BRAIN TEASER: Can you name the last player to win a major that already had one to his credit?

WHAN’S WORLD: For Mike Whan, running the Ladies Professional Golf Association is all about creating opportunities. It is a mantra that has come to define his eight years as the tour's commissioner, one which has taken women's golf and its leading circuit to new heights and unprecedented popularity. “The number one thing I’ve done since the day I got here and I continue to do is surround myself with people who are better at their jobs than I am at mine,” he says. “I mean, I’m both old enough and realistic enough to know that I’ve never been the smartest person in the room and that’s kind of depressing, but it’s fact.

“I was quarterback growing up and it wasn’t because I had a great arm. It was because I wasn’t fast enough to be a running back and I wasn’t strong enough to be a lineman. My job was to get the ball into a more talented person’s hands quickly, and I’ve been doing that since I was nine years old.” READ MORE>>>

SO FAR, SO GOOD: Justin Rose went with something new in the first round of the Irish Open. “Put a new set of irons in play this week, a new set of blades from TaylorMade,” he revealed after opening with a bogey-free 67. “That's what you want to see when you try something new, is to see it feel like a good decision. So I would say the strong part was my iron play, and just work on my driver a bit.

“They are called the Rose Proto. I think they very much look like a set of TaylorMades. They are still unique in the look to TaylorMade in the look they go for but just a bit of a cleaner look, I would say, just slightly sharper edges, sharp, better lines. So it's always nice when you look down at a blade for it to look like a confidence-building club just because it looks pretty.” No word on whether the irons are intended to debut at retail anytime soon.

HELPING HAND: For more than a quarter century, Mickey Bradley was there for PGA Tour pros when they needed a ruling. Now, one veteran player is helping Bradley in his time of need.

Zach Johnson is the last player to win a major (2015 Open Championship, St Andrews) that already owned one from before. There have been seven consecutive first time major winners since that time.
