ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “There's going to be a few things that are, practicing your drops from your knees. We're saying that Brian Harman has got a big advantage, he can basically place it. Where you got someone like Tony Finau who is dropping it probably from like waist high for me.”

BRAIN TEASER: Which of these players has the most career PGA TOUR victories: Sean O'Hair, J.B. Holmes, Ian Poulter, Keegan Bradley, Fred Couples or Hideki Matsuyama?

GET THE SHAFT OUT! Remember not all that long ago when belly putters were the rage. After the USGA nixed that since it didn’t like the look, it was then a shift to counterbalanced models. The idea being that maintaining resistance to twisting (MOI) was the way to making more putts drop. Now another part of the club is coming under scrutiny to make players better or perhaps enjoy the game a little more.

Odyssey says its Stroke Lab (picture the late Robin Williams’ routine on golf) is about challenging common, well-established putter norms with ideas that promote improved performance. READ MORE>>>

GEORGIA ALREADY ON YOUR MIND? Is it ever too soon to talk Masters? Caddy For A Cure announced its continued partnership with Under Armour Eyewear for the annual Monday of Masters, CaddyBash in Augusta. During the evening hours following the Monday practice round, Caddy For A Cure will conduct an exclusive interview with an opportunity for guests to have a Q&A session with Sean Foley and caddy Ted Scott (Bubba Watson).  Immediately following the session guests can watch the NCAA Championship finals game. Caddy For A Cure is a non-profit organization that raises money to support notable charitable groups through its program in professional golf.

“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,” said Russ Holden, Founder of Caddy For A Cure. “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. We are honored and grateful for this amazing opportunity and show of support by UA Eyewear and PrimeSport.”

The event is set to begin at 7:30 pm EST and tickets are available to purchase for $100.00 on www.caddyforacure.com

OH PADDY BOY: Underlining the scale of the task he has taken on in defending the trophy at Whistling Straits in Wisconsin next year, only once in the last 15 years has the away team won — and that needed a miracle at Medinah. To prepare, Harrington will call on the counsel of every captain from the last 20 years. Well, all but one. “Eight put their heart and soul into the job, so they will certainly be a help, while one did it half-heartedly, and that didn’t end so good,” said Harrington. Just in case anyone had doubts as to the identity of the miscreant, Harrington added: “It shows that just because you’re a successful player, it doesn’t mean you’ll be a great captain.” READ MORE>>>
