ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “The first couple starts I wasn't feeling great with my swing and I was struggling a little bit. Barely made the cut at Travelers and missed the cut at Rocket Mortgage. Kind of just went back to how I used to play in college, just freed up. I told myself I know I'm good enough to be out here. I was sitting in my hotel room at nights thinking what am I doing here, I don't feel comfortable with my game at all, and these guys are all shooting 20, 25 under to win. Then come in here, it's just complete opposite. It's crazy how the game of golf works, but I love it.”

BRAIN TEASER: I’m 43-years old and made $603,160 in 19 events this season with only one top 10 finish. My last victory was a big one, a major in 2015. Who am I?

SELLER? Callaway Golf Co. may be selling its stake in TopGolf sooner than expected after omitting words about the franchised party venue’s long-term value in a slide deck published ahead of this week’s anticipated investor road show, according to Stephens. READ MORE>>>

WHO WOULD GET YOUR VOTE? The nominees for the Jack Nicklaus Award as the PGA TOUR Player of the Year are Brooks Koepka, Matt Kuchar, Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele. The nominees for the Arnold Palmer Award as the PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year are Cameron Champ, Sungjae Im, Adam Long, Collin Morikawa and Matthew Wolff.

The PGA TOUR Player Directors and members of the Player Advisory Council (PAC) selected the nominees for each award. The Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year awards are determined by a member vote, with PGA TOUR members who played in at least 15 FedExCup events during the 2018-19 season eligible to vote.

THE HAVE AND HAVE NOTS: Ballots have been sent to PGA Tour players, who will have the final word on who had the best season. Of lesser interest is who gets voted rookie of the year. In both cases, it could illustrate the differences between how the PGA Tour and its players view what matters. READ MORE>>>

WEB GEMS:

MCILROY SPEAKS OUT: Rory McIlroy has hit back at critics rejecting his claims of, “a very successful year,” because of his failure in the majors, at the same time as calling for the game’s calendar to be radically overhauled. READ MORE>>>

OVERLOOKED: So much attention was paid to the upside at East Lake, with $15 million going to the winner of the FedEx Cup and seven-figure bonuses paid out to the top eight players at the Tour Championship. Overlooked was the most volatile week of the FedEx Cup playoffs, and it was costly to Patrick Cantlay. READ MORE>>>

Zach Johnson’s last victory was the 2015 Open Championship in St. Andrews. He made 13 cuts in the 19 events he played in this season but only had one top 10 finish, which came at the 2018 RSM Classic.
