ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Well, it will kill my game but it’ll be good for golf. It won’t help my game because I’ll be working but I’ll get to play. I love golf, I love playing it, it’s a very important game, it’s a great game. You can learn so much, you make so many great friends by playing golf but I will say this; it won’t be good for my game but it’ll be great for golf because I have a lot of feeling for golf.”

BRAIN TEASER: Over the past five years can you rank the following players in order of the most to least wins on the PGA TOUR or Champions Tour: Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Bernhard Langer?

THANK YOU: Due to the upcoming holiday season, the Daily Pulse’s final issue for 2017 is today. Publishing will resume again on January 2, 2018. In the event anything of significance happens in the golf world during this typically quiet period, it will be reported in a standalone email. Thank you to everyone who has supported the Daily Pulse and helped to make it a success. Happy Holidays and a very happy and healthy 2018 to one and all.

BRAND EXPOSURE: The Nautica brand, a division of VF Sportswear Inc., which is a subsidiary of VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC), announced it will be extending its marketing partnership with Cameron Tringale for an additional year. This will make a total of six years that Tringale has represented the brand.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Kim moved to the United States when he was 7 and later played for the University of California, Berkeley where in 2013 he became the first Cal men's golfer to ever win national player of the year honors when he received both the Jack Nicklaus Award & the Haskins Award. 

"We are excited to continue our partnership with Cameron Tringale and add Michael Kim to the team for 2018," said Brendan Sullivan, President of Nautica.  "Both athletes are great representatives for the Nautica brand, and all that it stands for: an active lifestyle, youthful energy, and strong determination."

"I'm excited to extend my relationship with Nautica, one of my longest standing partners," said Tringale. "The NavTech product will help me perform at my best as I chase my first PGA TOUR victory."

HE’S STILL A MAJOR THREAT: Woods swung freely and with no sign of back pain at the Hero World Challenge, finishing tied for ninth in the 18-man exhibition, which featured eight of the world’s top 10 golfers. Mark Calcavecchia saw enough to know it would be foolish to write off the former world number one. “His name is Tiger Woods after all. You don’t just forget that he has won 14 majors and 79 (PGA Tour) tournaments. I watched most of last week and I was very impressed with a lot of things. He’s going at it full speed, he’s certainly not holding back trying to protect what we all thought was still going to be a tender back.” READ MORE>>>

ANSWERS: “Well, it will kill my game but it’ll be good for golf. It won’t help my game because I’ll be working but I’ll get to play. I love golf, I love playing it, it’s a very important game, it’s a great game. You can learn so much, you make so many great friends by playing golf but I will say this; it won’t be good for my game but it’ll be great for golf because I have a lot of feeling for golf.”--Donald Trump back in March of 2016 when asked what he’d do for golf if he became President of the United States. Decide for yourselves if Trump’s presidency has had any impact on the game since he’s taken office.

It may surprise some that Bernhard Langer has the most titles out of this group with 20 on the Champions Tour since 2013. Jordan Spieth has 14 PGA TOUR victories followed by Dustin Johnson (10), Jason Day (9) and Rory McIlroy (7) since 2013. Both Day and McIlroy were winless in 2017.
