ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “I love Scotland. It's where my career, I guess, kind of jumped off. It was my first start on The European Tour. St. Andrews is my favorite place to play golf. I've said it before in different press conferences or wherever someone might ask, where my favorite place to play is, it's always St. Andrews. No question about it. I love how the design; there's always a bunker in play. There's always trouble in play. Every time you play, it's always a little bit different. There's so many angles you have to work from the green back. It's a beautifully designed golf course. It's so much fun to play.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player finished T10 last week at the Safeway Open and recently became engaged to Fuzzy Zoeller’s daughter, Gretchen. Can you name him?

ITS STILL TOUGH TO MAKE A BUCK: A second Scottish golf resort owned by President Donald Trump posted losses last year. A report from Britain’s Companies House shows the Trump International Golf Links near Aberdeen lost 1.3 million pounds last year ($1.6 million at current exchange rates) on a fall in revenues, adding to a string of losses at the North Sea resort in recent years. Despite the trouble, the president’s company is planning a major development at the resort. In July, his company submitted plans to local Scottish officials to spend nearly 150 million pounds ($196 million) building The Trump Estate, a residential community of 500 luxury cottages and mansions. The loss was smaller than the previous year’s as the company trimmed some costs, including cutting a few jobs. The report comes days after Trump’s Turnberry resort along the Irish Sea on the other side of Scotland posted millions of dollars losses, too. READ MORE>>>

TRY IT YOU’LL LIKE IT: New Balance Golf has introduced the Striker golf shoe, a lightweight, athletic-style cleated shoe. It is built on a PW-1 last, which gives golfers a wider forefoot with a shallow toe box depth and a lower instep height, according to the company, allowing them better ground feel throughout their swing and in every step on the fairways. The waterproof microfiber leather upper has skeletally engineered, ultralight FantomFit support to provide for what the company calls the ultimate fit. The Striker carries a suggested retail price of $99.95 and will be available at retail starting on October 15 2018.

A YEAR TO REMEMBER: “The lowest of lows and the highest of highs,” the 28-year-old Koepka said about the most unusual season. “It was pretty dramatic. Look, at the beginning of the season, I was just hoping to be back out playing again. To sit here after winning two majors and Player of the Year, I don’t think I even thought this was going to happen. This is incredible. It’s an honor. It’s mind-boggling.” READ MORE>>>

NEXT MAN? “I would say a three times major champion, clearly a European legend, for me Padraig is the frontrunner,” Rose, who reached world number one this year and is now second in the rankings, told Sky Sports television on Tuesday. “And then you’ve got (Lee) Westwood. It’s interesting when you try to project out who the possible captains are for the next 10 Ryder Cups.” READ MORE>>>
