ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I'm lucky that the Shriners Hospital and PGA TOUR gave me the platform to help donate and help people here in the city of Las Vegas. I called Las Vegas home for 20 years. Went to college here. Lot of pride, lot of friends out here in Las Vegas, a lot of people obviously grieving. With the stories I've heard this week, there are a lot of people hurting in this city.” 

BRAIN TEASER: Branden Grace made history at Royal Birkdale recording the all time low round in a major. What did he shoot to enter the record books?

FOR THE MASSES: KBS is introducing a shaft for mid-to-high handicap golfers for the first time. “In the past our philosophy has been to design stronger shafts aimed at the better player, but the Max 80 has been developed for those players with a higher handicap looking to maximize the performance of their irons on every shot,” said Kim Braly R&D and Tour operations director.

UPSIDE: Patrick Cantlay won the 2017 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and is safely inside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Now ranked 42nd, Cantlay didn’t need a lot of time to rise through the ranks. Entering the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in February, he was 1424th in the world! For any Tiger doubters, this might be something to pause and consider. If Woods is able to come back and resume his successful ways, it isn’t inconceivable that he could rival Cantlay’s ascension. Woods is currently ranked 1183rd.

ADRENALINE RUSH: Team England, led by Ian Poulter, has set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the Fastest hole of golf by a team of four, shaving two seconds off the previous record time and beating Team South Africa. The European Tour challenged some its stars to break the existing record of 34.87 seconds, which was set last April by the French team of Raphaël Jacquelin, Alexander Levy, Grégory Havret and Romain Wattel at the Real Club Valderrama Open de España – an attempt which was watched by more than ten million people across the European Tour’s platforms.

STICK TO GOLF? The game’s main Tours seem set to come under pressure to regulate “wacky” pre-tournament photo stunts after Henrik Stenson suffered a season-ending rib injury whilst being suspended in the air posing as a superhero. READ MORE>>>

THE STORY OF PATRICK CANTLAY: The stress fracture in his lower back derailed and stalled his PGA TOUR career for nearly four years. The tragic death of his close friend and caddie in a hit-and-run accident a year ago offered unwanted perspective and heartache. But while those two developments combined to send Patrick Cantlay to the lowest point of his young life, he doesn’t see them tied neatly into one emotional package, ready to offer equal parts inspiration and determination as he begins his comeback this week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. That’s not how he’s planning to cope. In order to play his best golf this week, Cantlay must focus only on the tasks at hand, the process of managing his way around 18 holes. “I’m just trying to make it all about the golf,” he said on the eve of his first round. “Trying to forget everything else.” It won’t be easy.

ANSWERS: “I'm lucky that the Shriners Hospital and PGA TOUR gave me the platform to help donate and help people here in the city of Las Vegas. I called Las Vegas home for 20 years. Went to college here. Lot of pride, lot of friends out here in Las Vegas, a lot of people obviously grieving. With the stories I've heard this week, there are a lot of people hurting in this city.” --Charley Hoffman, who donated his winnings from the tournament of $98,000.

Branden Grace made history at Royal Birkdale shooting 62 in the third round and in the process recorded the all time low round in a major. The previous low score was 63, which had been posted 31 times, most recently by Justin Thomas during the third round of the 2017 U.S. Open.
