ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “Obviously the goal each week is to win. I didn't do that this year. As far as that goes, I still got some motivation to work. As far as the year-end goal, this is pretty good. From what I understand, I get to go to Augusta next year. Hadn't been there in a long time. Pretty excited about that. I'm proud of my season. I didn't get a win. I'm still hungry.”

BRAIN TEASER: Two major champions didn’t make it to East Lake for the TOUR Championship. Who are they?

GO PRO! Golf Pride has introduced all new PRO ONLY putter grip series. “Many people find it surprising that 70% of the Top 30 putters on Tour prefer a smaller size putter grip. They prefer it because it allows them to gain greater feel, feedback and control. The PRO ONLY models deliver those Tour-preferred shapes with three uniquely optimized performance options,” said Bruce Miller, product manager, Golf Pride. “The new PRO ONLY putter-grip series enhances those marksman preferences with our new age materials, providing preferred shapes that have been trusted to win countless major championships.”

Available in three different models, the PRO ONLY putter grip series will be available at retail September 1st and feature a suggested retail price of $12.99 each. For more information on the PRO ONLY putter grips and the entire 2019 Golf Pride product offering, visit GolfPride.com.

IT IS WHAT IT IS: He contended at the Masters, US Open and US PGA Championship, although he missed the cut at the British Open. It is why the former world No.1 Adam Scott will take his FedEx Cup result with a grain of salt. "I think it's taken me a long time to realize you have to take the FedEx Cup for what it is," Scott said. "It is a big old exhibition at the end of the year with a pot of gold at the end. You can play great all year and not win (the FedEx) and you can play average all year and win it. And you can play somewhere in between, it's hard to know exactly what it is." READ MORE>>>

THE TRAVESTY! The 1975 US Open at Medinah immediately followed the infamous “Massacre at Winged Foot” where Hale Irwin’s grinding seven-over-par 287 on one of the hardest golf courses in the United States was good enough to win by two shots. By the time the US Open returned to Medinah in 1990, the course was 200 yards longer, the cut came down from seven over to one over and Irwin won his national crown a third time, shooting 280. Now, almost 30 years on, the game has changed beyond recognition. READ MORE>>>

PELLEY TALKS: Many issues have affected the game of golf since I became Chief Executive of the European Tour, but none have been as recurrent as the topic of slow play. It is the discussion that dominates dinner tables at tournaments and it is one of the main sources of frustration at all levels of the game. Although superficially solving the pace of play conundrum would seem like an easy fix, golf’s biggest challenge remains the size of our arena, as an 18-hole golf course is equivalent to almost 90 football fields, with 156 players dotted around it. Timing every player, on every shot, every week is a monumental, and costly, challenge. We must also consider the complexities of policing more robust timing rules. READ MORE>>>
