If you’re not signed up for our newsletters, you can.
1. Behind schedule reveal of PGA Tour schedule now scheduled
Has there ever been this much interest in/focus on the PGA Tour calendar? (Probably, yes, during early FedEx Cup days). With plenty changing, a philosophical shift, and 11th hour developments, the Tour had its work cut out for it.
2. …Accordingly: Takes aplenty
Scribes scrambled to put together perspective pieces on the new schedule late yesterday morning–a task made easier by the fact that 80% of it and most major developments were already know.
3. Bowdo finds a new caddie via Twitter
The struggling, always entertaining, can’t-help-but-root-for Steven Bowditch put out a call for a caddie…on social media.
4. What the heck is John Peterson going to do now?
A few morsels from Golf Channel’s Ryan Lavner…
5. A secret rematch!
Apparently, Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth already had an Open Championship rematch…on the foosball table.
6. Bryson won’t back down
I mean, with respect to the compass, he will, because that’s now an illegal instrument that he needs to put back in his pencil box…but in general, BAD will continue to push the limit, Tim Rosaforte says.
7. Dylan Meyer & chronic disease
The bespectacled Tour rookie has Crohn’s Disease. Mike McAllister does of good job of explaining exactly what that means for the 23-year-old.
8. “With a name like Duff, he should work in golf”
Such is the headline for John Clarke’s New York Times chat with Stewart Duff, 50, Gullane’s course manager, ahead of the Scottish Open.
9. TaylorMade “GAPR”?
Cool story because it’s an illustration of golf equipment released in the web 2.0 world and its associated ecosystem.
