No collection of stars figured more prominently this year than the members of the Class of 2011 – the year they all graduated from high school.

After another 10-month spell away and a fourth back operation in three years, Tiger Woods is “pain free” and could be back playing competitively as early as next week. Woods, who has not played competitive golf for 10 months as he recovers from a fourth operation on his back in three years, will be making his comeback next week at his own tournament in Albany, Bahamas.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have one game left in the 2017 regular season, and it’s a trip to the ridiculously crappy field in Palo Alto against the Stanford Cardinal. IT’S THE BATTLE FOR THE LEGENDS TROPHY! Yes, it’s a real thing that exists despite the super secret nature of the hardware (a common theme for Irish trophies). Notre Dame hasn’t won at Stanford since the infamous 2007 season. That’s a DECADE for people as wound as tight as I am right now. You can put all the games in the Brian Kelly era aside, and place this matchup in the group called “ONE OF THE BIGGEST IN HIS CAREER.” It’s definitely true. A win on Saturday not only casts away the demons of Palo Alto, it puts Notre Dame in

(CNN)It's hard to imagine any of today's top professional golfers hunkered in a workshop making their own golf clubs. Rewind a couple of decades though and that's exactly what former world no.1 Greg Norman used to do, before he headed out to compete on the PGA Tour. "I used to hand make all my equipment, assemble my shafts, weigh up my grips, get the spine angles of my shafts exactly the same for every iron shot so you get absolute consistency with performance of your shaft," the 62-year-old Norman told CNN Sport over the phone earlier this month from his office in West Palm Beach, Florida. With that in mind, you can perhaps understand why Norman was baffled by the recent revelation that US Ryder Cup star Patrick Reed had failed to notice he'd been playing with the wrong club set-up.

Years before they became inextricably linked, before the photo of them together went viral, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas sat next to each other on a transatlantic Swissair flight. Tied for the lead heading into the final round at Walnut Creek outside Dallas, Spieth dusted his fellow 13-year-old by five shots in his first AJGA start. Now, they were part of a U.S. foursome that was headed to France for the inaugural Evian Masters Junior Cup, an international mixed competition in which the top three finishers earned a spot in the pro-am prior to that week’s LPGA event. During their weeklong trip, the boys shared a one-bedroom unit, noshed on chocolate croissants, toured the Olympic Museum and jostled for a spot next to Paula Creamer in photos.

Follow Kieran on Twitter » Follow on Twitter CHARLESTOWN, R.I. -- Jason Day returns home to play in the Australian Open this week for the first time since 2013. The former No. 1-ranked player in the world explained why in a wide-ranging Q&A with recently at Shelter Harbor Golf Club, where he was doing promotional work for TaylorMade. Now that golf is essentially a year-round sport, how has that changed the process of testing new equipment, for instance? It makes it quite difficult.

Jeremy Roenick is many different things to many different people, I'm sure. But in my limited interaction with his online persona, I am sure of only two. The first is that he's a lover of golf. The second is that he might be a crazy person. Those two world collided last week when Roenick captured a rattlesnake with two golf clubs before grabbing it by the head and discarding it. The video made me nauseous, and it made whoever was filming nauseous as well. You can hear someone in the background saying, "Don't pick him up. No!" To which Roenick responds, "That's how you catch a rattler." Eat your heart out, Mike Gundy. Wink of the CBS eye to FTW

Of all the U.S. Amateur’s jaw-dropping moments, Doc Redman’s 33rd-hole par putt best exemplified the display of persistence behind the 19-year-old’s win over Doug Ghim. Following a solid recovery shot from one of Riviera Country Club’s deep greenside bunkers, Redman faced a downhill, left-to-right 10-footer. Ghim was in with his own par and 1 up in what was already an incredible duel. “Good shot,” said Fox’s Curtis Strange before cutting his microphone sound. “But he’s got no chance to make that. Impossible putt.” The two-time U.S. Open champion was not totally wrong. The putt was everything a right-hander generally hates: downhill and breaking significantly left-to-right with huge match implications
