ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “When people ask what’s driven me all these years, I always give the same answer. It’s you.”

BRAIN TEASER: How many times in his career has Tiger Woods won the Arnold Palmer Invitational?

MODERNIZATION: The R&A and the USGA finalized golf’s new Rules after a review that included a request for feedback from the global golf community on the proposed changes. The process to modernize the Rules began in 2012 and was initiated to ensure that they are easier to understand and apply for all golfers as well as to make the game more attractive and accessible for newcomers. While the majority of proposed Rules remain intact in the final version, several important changes to the initial proposals and further clarification of many Rules were incorporated. The most significant adjustments made following review of the feedback received from golfers around the world include: READ MORE>>>

FORE MORE YEARS: The PGA TOUR and SiriusXM announced a four-year extension to their broadcasting agreement on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio through 2021. “PGA TOUR coverage is a very important part of our sports programming lineup, and we are very pleased to extend our long-term relationship with the TOUR to continue to give our listeners an extensive schedule of in-depth tournament broadcasts,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer.  “No other audio or streaming broadcaster can match SiriusXM’s level of golf programming, and whether it is via our radios or our app, we continue to deliver it to fans anywhere across the country.”

WINNER’S CLUBS: Paul Casey picked up his second career PGA TOUR victory on Sunday at the Valspar Championship. It was his career 227th start. He moved to 12th in the world rankings. He started the final round five shots behind the leader and ran off three straight birdies early on the back nine at Innisbrook to take the lead, and he finished with four par saves to post 10-under.

Casey had gone 132 starts on the PGA TOUR since winning in Houston (2009 Houston Open), though he had won five times worldwide, including the European Tour's flagship event at the BMW PGA Championship. He had seven top 5s in the FedExCup playoffs over the last three years. He beat Tiger Woods by one shot.  It was the closest Woods has come to winning in nearly five years. Here are the clubs Casey used in his victory and a comparison between his numbers and equipment and the last two years winners Adam Hadwin and Charl Schwartzel.

THE CIRCLE OF LIFE: When Paul Casey joined Burhill golf club in Surrey as a youngster, it was Ian Colclough and his wife Mary who took him under their wing. They were such ardent supporters they drove nine hours from Weybridge to Gleneagles to witness his first victory as a pro in the Scottish PGA Championship in 2001. On Monday, it was Casey’s turn to make the long journey. Following his success at a memorable Valspar Championship in Tampa on Sunday, the 40-year-old boarded a plane for London to be by Ian’s side for Mary’s funeral, after she lost a long battle with cancer.
