Leeaderboard: OHL Classic at Mayakoba
Rickie Fowler is one of three players tied for the lead, but he hasn't even begun his third round yet due to weather delays.
Fowler in 3-way tie for lead in Mexico
Rickie Fowler woke up at 5 a.m. Saturday and played three holes in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. It was enough to get him a three-way share of the 36-hole lead going into a marathon finish in Mexico. Fowler and Patrick Rodgers had to wait out a five-hour rain delay just to resume their second round Saturday. Fowler saved par from a bunker on the 18th hole for a 4-under 67. Rodgers finally make his first bogey of the tournament on his 17th hole had to settle for a 65. They shared the lead at 10-under 132 along with Patton Kizzire, who hasn't hit a shot since his 70 on Friday. The last three groups didn't have enough light at El Camaleon Golf Club to even start the third round, leaving them a 36-hole
Pro golfer hilariously asks for a ruling about a giant bug on his ball
Golf has so many obscure rules, it?s hard to keep track or for pros to know what to do in certain unique situations. So you can?t blame Bryson DeChambeau for asking for a ruling when there?s a ?pretty big bug? hanging out on the back of his ball during the first round of the OHL Classic in Mexico. You don?t want to take a penalty by moving your ball even a hair to get rid of the intruder. But DeChambeau gingerly got rid of the critter ? as PGA Tour VP of Rules Slugger White looked on ? by gently nudging it with a tee until it left, so problem solved. But still, don?t you love a sport in which you need an official to tell you what the heck to do about a bug on your ball?
Bridgestone says 'payoff' for signing Tiger Woods has already happened
Tiger Woods has only completed one PGA Tour event in the year since Bridgestone Golf signed him to a long-term exclusive deal to use its balls. Since Woods signed his deal with Bridgestone, he has missed all four majors, underwent his fourth back surgery, got arrested for DUI, pled to reckless driving, entered a pre-trial diversion program, completed ?an intensive drug treatment? rehab, co-captained the victorious U.S. Presidents? Cup and shared his physical comeback on social media. By the way, Woods will be playing in the Hero World Challenge starting in three weeks. Bridgestone Golf CEO Angel Ilagan says no matter how well or poorly Woods plays in the Bahamas and beyond ? the company has done well with its deal.
Steward: What of you in 2032? Hopefully just alive to see Olympic?s Ryder Cup
Darting here and there ? ?Memo to sports editor: Won?t be available to report on 2032 Ryder Cup at The Olympic Club in San Francisco. With any luck, 80th birthday party planned for that weekend. ?Think we?re OK for the 2028 PGA Championship, though, as long as the hips and hearing aids hold out. ?Good grief, golf, what other sport sets its major events so many years in advance? Answer: none. Fifteen years? We know about 2032 at Olympic before we know who?s hosting the 2032 Olympics? Fore! ?Not to be outdone, Pebble Beach Golf Club announced it will be staging the 3000 U.S. Open, provided the entire course hasn?t eroded into the Pacific Ocean by then. Every thousand years, said Clint Eastwood,
PGA Championship will return to Valhalla Golf Club in 2024
LOUISVILLE, Ky. ? Ten years after Rory McIlroy defeated Phil Mickelson and gathering darkness to win the PGA Championship, the major championship will return to Valhalla Golf Club in 2024, the Louisville Courier Journal reported Friday, Ted Bishop wonders why it took so long to book a return trip. The former president of the PGA of America, who suggested Valhalla as a permanent site for the tournament in an August essay on, expressed surprise Friday that the cost benefits of staging the event at a PGA-owned facility had not prompted an earlier return date. A press conference has been scheduled for Thursday at Valhalla. A source familiar with the plans but not yet authorized to
Max Hopkins and Annabell Fuller show youthful brilliance to take titles at Qu...
Hertfordshire?s Max Hopkins was hailed as a ?star in the making? on Friday after he etched his name into the Telegraph Vitality Junior Golf Championship history books in the sun-drenched Algarve. The 14-year-old became the youngest boys? winner since the event was first held in 1985, while 15-year-old Annabell Fuller also triumphed over her elders with an emphatic 13-stroke victory in the girls? competition. Incredibly, both trophy winners have three more years in the junior ranks.
Storylines from The RSM Classic
? COURSE: Sea Island GC (Seaside), 7,005 yards, par 70. Sea Island?s original layout dates back to 1929, a nine-hole links on the southern tip of St. Simon?s Island created by English architects Harry Colt and Charles Alison. Among its early enthusiasts was Bobby Jones, who described Seaside as among the best nine holes he?d ever played. Joe Lee added the ?Marshside Nine? in 1973, and the two nines were combined in a 1999 Tom Fazio project. Entrants also play one of their first two rounds at the par-72 Plantation course, which joined the format two years ago after Rees Jones fused two other nine-hole layouts into an 18-hole test. ?

Watch: DeChambeau needs ruling for pesky bug
It?s become trendy the last few months to leverage the ongoing debate over how far modern professionals hit the golf ball by warning that unless something is done to stem the distance tide, 8,000-yard golf courses will become the norm. Jack Nicklaus has warned about this for years, and last week Tiger Woods took a similar message to the masses during an ESPN podcast with Geno Auriemma, who is a wonderful basketball coach but probably out of his depth when it comes to the intricacies of modern golf course architecture. ?The only thing I would say is that we need to do something about the golf ball. To hear Woods talk, you'd think the prospect of 8,000-yard golf courses is a terrifying one, at least for course designers.
