ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I had the Nike clubs for a long time and there's not many of them left, so I can't throw them out half cocked. So that's that. I did actually get a new set of them last week, which I was playing with, because my hosel is bent from overuse, but I've gotten used to them now. This is like my last one that I'm probably comfy with. But these will last a while. So there's not going to be throwing for at least another two and a half years.”

BRAIN TEASER: In the modern era, only three players have won 14 or more PGA TOUR victories by the age of 30. Can you name all three?

pumahitopsIS THIS YOUR NEXT LOOK? Maybe along the lines of Justin Timberlake bringing sexy back, PUMA Golf is looking to bring the high top back. That is in golf. Wait a minute, it never really was a big deal (in golf). Regardless, the company reported it’s broadening its PWRADAPT footwear collection with its IGNITE PWRADAPT Hi-Tops ($220). 

“Our goal each season is to push the game forward with products that challenge the status quo while respecting the traditions of golf. The IGNITE PWRADAPT Hi-Tops represents this continued drive for style innovation and the evolution of a silhouette that’s become synonymous with PUMA Golf and Rickie (Fowler). It’s our way of integrating the latest in on-trend fashion elements with cutting-edge golf footwear,” said Grant Knudson, Global Head of Footwear & Accessories, PUMA Golf.  “The combination of the proven PWRADAPT platform and a hi-top knitted upper brings the perfect blend of style and performance suited for a wide variety of conditions golfers can encounter on course.”

DON’T LOOK NOW: Tiger Woods moved up another 44 spots in the world rankings thanks to his T5 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Woods is now ranked 105th after starting the year at 656th!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT: Caddy For A Cure announced its continued partnership with Under Armour Eyewear for the annual CaddyBash in Augusta. The event, benefitting the non-profit organization that raises money to support notable charitable groups, will be held at the Executive Club. During the evening hours following the Monday practice round, as part of the CaddyBash, Caddy For A Cure will conduct an exclusive interview with an opportunity for guests to have a Q&A session with Sean Foley and TOUR caddy Ted Scott (Bubba Watson). Immediately following the session guests can watch the NCAA Championship finals game on high definition screens and enjoy premium quality hospitality services.

“In addition to facilitating involvement in the game and rehabilitation through our program, we were able to participate in a service dog donation to a wounded service member and participant of our Caddy For A Cure program. This achievement, combined with our donation of a mortgage free home last year, continues to fuel our drive to provide support to our military through golf and we’re confident the CaddyBash at the Executive Club will be another step in that direction” said Russ Holden, Founder of Caddy For A Cure. “We are honored and grateful for this amazing opportunity and show of support by UA Eyewear and PrimeSport.”

Along with its ongoing sponsorship of the Association of Professional Tour Caddies (APTC), UA Eyewear's license holder, Eyeking, continues to promote its commitment to the sport of golf. "UA Eyewear’s partnership with the APTC and Caddy For A Cure has helped us continue the conversation of improving eye protection on the course. We look forward to supporting Caddy For A Cure again this season”, said Kristine Robinson, Head of Marketing for Eyeking. The event is set to begin at 7:30 pm EST and tickets are available to purchase for $100.00 on www.caddyforacure.com.

MORE THAN GOLF IN AUSTIN: With the PGA Tour in Austin for the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, players were asked about security and if they feel safe after the bombings that have rocked the city in recent days. Jordan Spieth, who is from Dallas, attended the University of Texas in the state's capital and designed a golf course for the campus. “It stinks equally anywhere that it would happen," Spieth said Tuesday of four mysterious bombings in Austin that are being investigated by authorities. "But obviously for such a fantastic city full of great people it stinks for the city of Austin.” READ MORE>>>

DESPERATE TIMES, DESPERATE MEASURES: Ian Poulter will employ the weapon that inspired golf’s greatest fightback in his mission to capture a late spot in the Masters. The 42-year-old Englishman competes in the Dell WGC Match Play here on the quest to “at least make it into the semi-finals” and so re-enter the world’s top 50 in time for Monday’s cut-off qualification point for Augusta. And in an attempt to emulate Rory McIlroy’s remarkable victory at Bay Hill on Sunday and turn his form on the greens around in a few days, Poulter has reached for the putter which earned legendary status at “The Miracle of Medinah.” READ MORE>>>

NOT TO BE: US Open champion Brooks Koepka will miss the Masters due to an ongoing wrist injury. READ MORE>>>
