ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Bragging rights are what's going to be even worse than the money. Every time I see you, I want to be able to rub it in. I want to sit is the champion's locker room in Augusta and talk smack. I want that.”

BRAIN TEASER: Which is these players do you think had the best final round scoring average in 2018: Francesco Molinari, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood, Bryson DeChambeau, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson or Brooks Koepka?

BUMP IN THE ROAD OR STEEP HILL TO CLIMB? Sports is moving to the Internet. But the Internet still isn’t ready for sports. Media giant AT&T Inc. was forced to make a pay-per-view golf match between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods free to watch on Friday after suffering a glitch processing customers’ online purchases. “People think of this as TV and it will never be as reliable as TV,” said Dan Rayburn, the principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan who writes for the website Streamingmediablog.com. “The internet was not built for reliable video delivery.” READ MORE>>>

At least Jim Furyk was spared the blame for that on this occasion, unlike poor old Tom Watson at Gleneagles in 2014. READ MORE>>>

TRUMP’S GOLF PROBLEM: President Donald Trump spent the past five days at the self-dubbed "Southern White House" at his Mar-a-Lago resort. How did he spend his time? Well, he played golf Wednesday and Thursday. And Friday, Saturday and Sunday too. Which, on one level, who cares? But Trump's golf problem is that he made criticizing his predecessor's golf habit a cottage industry. READ MORE>>>

ANSWERS: “Bragging rights are what's going to be even worse than the money. Every time I see you, I want to be able to rub it in. I want to sit is the champion's locker room in Augusta and talk smack. I want that.”--Phil Mickelson on his match with Tiger Woods.
