ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “At the beginning of the year I didn't have much game. You saw it. My objective was to win a golf tournament and give myself plenty of looks at doing it. The objective is to always win, but how am I going to do it when I had no game at the beginning of the year? And somehow I've got to find a way to piece it together and give myself a chance with what little game I had.”

BRAIN TEASER: Where did Tiger Woods finish in the FedExCup playoffs after winning the Tour Championship on Sunday?

FIT TO A T: Titleist has introduced the Vokey WedgeWorks Limited Edition 60º T Grind in a slate blue finish. According to the company, it comes directly from Bob Vokey's early days on tour. Titleist reported this low bounce wedge was popular at this summer’s Open Championship, due to the firm fast conditions players faced at Carnoustie. “When we arrived at Carnoustie and saw how firm and fast the course was playing, it was clear that the T Grind was going to be a great option,” said Vokey Tour Rep Aaron Dill. “Bob crafted the T Grind to have low bounce that can be easily manipulated while keeping the leading edge close to the turf. It really excels when faced with those hard, unforgiving lies.”

The 60°T Grind offers a low-bounce option for players with a shallow attack angle playing in firm conditions. The dual-bounce sole features narrow, forward bounce to help with square-face shots and trailing edge relief to help create a gliding sensation. Similar to the L Grind, the T Grind is a low-bounce option; however, the T Grind's dual-bounce sole allows the wedge to sit closer to the ground, making it easier to get the leading edge under the ball and promoting lift.

The limited edition 60°T Grind features a brand new, ultra-premium Slate Blue finish. The finish features a mirror polish with hints of blue and gray. As part of WedgeWorks, Limited 60°T Grinds can be customized, including personalized stamping in up to 10 characters and one of 12 paintfill colors. Golfers can also choose from an industry-leading selection of shafts, grips, shaft bands, toe engravings and ferrules.

The Vokey WedgeWorks Limited 60°T Grind wedges are available through WedgeWorks on Vokey.com or by custom order, starting at $250.

WEB GEMS:

FINALLY: Two years ago, Londoner Oliver Fisher walked on to the 18th green at the Portugal Masters fretting about keeping his tour card. On Friday, he walked off it with his arms aloft after creating a notable piece of European Tour history. More than 680,000 rounds have been played since the tour was founded in 1972, but no one had broken the magical sub-60 barrier until Fisher two-putted from long range to record a 59 on Friday.

REDEMPTION: They had waited more than five years for this moment. No way were those frail little ropes, strung up on flimsy poles, going to hold them back. No way were they listening to those red-shirted marshals, a bit of terror in their eyes as they pleaded futilely for everyone to come to their senses. They had to feel it, touch it, see if with their own eyes. Maybe that was the only way to persuade themselves that this most remarkable of comebacks had actually happened. Tiger Woods. READ MORE>>>

ANSWERS: “At the beginning of the year I didn't have much game. You saw it. My objective was to win a golf tournament and give myself plenty of looks at doing it. The objective is to always win, but how am I going to do it when I had no game at the beginning of the year? And somehow I've got to find a way to piece it together and give myself a chance with what little game I had.”--Tiger Woods prior to the start of the Tour Championship.

Justin Rose won the FedExCup playoffs and the $10 million. Tiger Woods, ranked 20th heading into the final event, finished second over all. Bryson DeChambeau was third.
