ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “There's so many steps to get to this point and you really have to kind of overcome a lot of obstacles to get here. I'm kind of a never-give-up guy. I've really tried to stay the course and believe in myself. It seemed a long way at the point when I was on the Hooters Tour, but now it's just part of the whole process.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player joined the PGA TOUR in 2010. He has played in 197 events in his career and made the cut 155 times. He has won four tournaments and has career earnings of $30,539,021. How is he?

TAKING CARE OF BUSINESS: Acushnet Holdings Corp. (NYSE: GOLF) announced an offering of 8,332,311 shares of its common stock by investment funds affiliated with Mirae Asset Global Investments Co. Ltd. (the “Selling Shareholder”). The Selling Shareholder intends to grant the underwriters in the offering a 30-day option to purchase up to an additional 833,231 shares of common stock from it. Acushnet is not selling any shares of common stock in this offering and will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the shares of common stock by the Selling Shareholder.

THANKS FOR THE OPPORTUNITY: John Oda, a sponsor exemption playing his first PGA TOUR event last week in Mexico as a professional, finished solo-eighth at 12-under 272. The top-10 result makes the newcomer eligible for a spot in the upcoming PGA TOUR event, The RSM Classic

HARD TO DUPLICATE: After making the cut on the number at 1-under 141, defending champion Pat Perez fired a final-round 66 (-5) to finish T34 at 6-under 278. The best performance by a defending OHL Classic at Mayakoba champion is 12th by Cameron Beckman in 2011.

LIFE BEGINS AT 50! Kevin Sutherland played his last 46 holes bogey-free to win the Charles Schwab Cup Championship. He made 341 starts (263 PGA TOUR, 1 Web.com Tour, 77 PGA TOUR Champions) since his last professional win at the 2002 WGC-Dell Match Play (15 years, 8 months, 19 days). He finished the season with $1,961,732, the second-highest total of his professional career. In 2008, he made $2,581,311 when he had six top-10s and two runner-up finishes and finished 11th in the FedExCup.

Bernhard Langer finished the season with a PGA TOUR Champions record $3,677,359 in winnings. He won the Tour money title for the sixth straight season, and it is his third $3 million season.

Vijay Singh played 12 tournaments this season, which matched the total number he played from 2013-2016. He earned $1,337,635 and finished fifth in the final standings, which gives him an additional $100,000 bonus.

WEB GEMS:

CONTROVERSY? "It was never meant to be fair," Langer said. "It was meant to be playoffs. Everybody in the field was given a chance to win. Is it fair? No, it's not, but that's how it is right now." READ MORE>>>
