ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Over the world there's a few places if you're into golf or you're a golfer that you have to visit or that you have to play. For me it's very similar to St. Andrews in that kind of historic and you know you're walking on sort of, I don't want to say sacred, but you're walking on very special land when you're playing. As soon as I got here it puts a smile on your face for some reason. It's just one of those few places in the world that has like an aura and an atmosphere about it and feel I’m very lucky to be playing golf.”

BRAIN TEASER: In making the cut Saturday, Phil Mickelson became the 18th player in PGA TOUR history to make 500 career cuts. Can you name the player who has made the most cuts on TOUR?

STILL PLENTY OF UPSIDE: Callaway reported it been investing in resources to launch Ogio and TravisMathew in European markets this year. The brands reported double-digit growth last year, but Callaway didn’t provide a specific revenue break out per brand. “We do have international expansion ahead for TravisMathew,” stated Chip Brewer, Callaway Golf’s CEO. “Just a phenomenal business and the brand is resonating across multiple channels and the growth. They have expansion opportunities still in door growth, particularly in the Green Grass channel. But they're growing across all channels. This brand is really resonating, it's resonating in golf, it is resonating outside golf.

“The Japan team has been investing in capabilities to launch Ogio and TravisMathew with good progress and modest revenue expected in 2019. These additions will add to our apparel scale and presence in this market.”

Casey, then 23 years old, opened with consecutive rounds of 76. He and Waugh did not make it to Sunday. “Failed miserably,” Casey recalled. “Still have a friendship with Seth, so I guess I didn’t fail totally.” READ MORE>>>
