ESPN The Magazine's list of 20 most-dominant athletes of 2018 includes only one golfer, and it's not the guy who won two majors this year.

Justin Rose will have a chance to finish a stellar year on a high when the world number two tees off on Thursday in the defense of his Indonesian Masters title. The 38-year-old will be the highest-ranked player at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club with Ryder Cup team mate Henrik Stenson and India's Shubhankar Sharma, the newly crowned Asian Tour Order of Merit champion, expected to be among main challengers. quot;I have always had the mentality that the golf course doesn't recognize who is the best player in the world," Rose said ahead of the season-ending Asian Tour event.

Created by the U.S.-based PGA Tour, the Presidents Cup largely copied the Ryder Cup format. The 13th staging of the biennial event will be held at Royal Melbourne starting exactly a year on Wednesday and a glance at the respective world rankings of the likely players suggests that the Americans are poised to continue their dominance. "I fear for the immediate future of the Presidents Cup," New Zealander Frank Nobilo, who played on the first three International teams, told Reuters.

This time, instead of Phil Mickelson offering an honest and uncomfortable assessment of the team’s leadership, it was Patrick Reed exposing an inexplicable rift in the American locker room. The issue’s obviously with Jordan [Spieth] not wanting to play with me. I don’t have any issue with Jordan,” Reed told the New York Times in the hours following the U.S. team’s seven-point loss to Europe, adding, “For somebody as successful in the Ryder Cup as I am, I don’t think it’s smart to sit me twice.

That chip might grow even larger when Koepka sees ESPN The Magazine's list of 20 most-dominant athletes of 2018, which was released on Tuesday. Koepka, who won two of his sport's four major titles in 2018, plus the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges this past fall, was noticeably omitted from the list: Before golf fans grab their torches and pitchforks though, the sport is represented on the list with the LPGA's Ariya Jutanugarn. And she didn't just sneak in on the list.

On Monday, October 8, 2018, Port Washington Youth Activities held the 21st annual Marty Rybecky Memorial Golf Outing, once again at the Village Club of Sands Point. For the 20th year in a row, the event was presented by Finn MacCool's restaurant through the gracious generosity of proprietor Connie O'Reilly. The Rybecky Memorial is so named for a longtime PYA volunteer coach, officer, director, and Hall-of-Famer who passed away some years ago. An avid golfer who introduced the game to his 4 sons, Marty's love for the game and the youth of Port Washington embodies the fun of the festive event that bears his name. 82 golfers and more than 90 sponsors led the way to PYA's largest fund-raising event

That produces more energy at impact—the longer stroke gives you smooth acceleration—and a better chance of catching the ball flush. It's just like trying to get more distance on a full shot: Hitting the ball in the middle of the clubface is the best thing you can do to transfer energy into the ball. And the best way to lose energy?

Matt Borchert thought he had finished a shot behind Bob Sowards with a 69 Tuesday in Event No. 4 of the PGA Tournament Series. But Sowards told him they both had 68s. Borchert re-checked his scorecard and realized his mistake. The golfers were tied at 8-under 136 and headed for a playoffs. Borchert then drained a 20-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole to win at PGA Golf Club in Port St. Lucie, Fla. It was the first PGA Tournament Series victory for Borchert, the PGA Professional at Isleworth Golf & Country Club near Orlando. “It was too long of a day on the golf course,” Borchert told when asked about the scoring issue. “I was trying to figure out where I stood on 18. I thought we

Athlete Ally published a Q&A with Reid, who has won six times on the Ladies European Tour and has two top-10 finishes on the LPGA Tour, about her experiences as a gay professional athlete. In the interview, the 31-year-old from England describes the process of coming out to her family as a good experience, saying her family is liberal and fully embraced her sexuality. Similarly, on the LPGA Tour she says she has found a welcoming environment, free of judgement towards sexuality.

According to another PGA Tour pro who attended the same college as Reed, it's been that way for quite a while. Kevin Kisner played college golf at Georgia, where Reed started his collegiate career before being kicked off the team and transferring to Augusta State. "They all hate him—any guys that were on the team with him [at Georgia] hate him and that’s the same way at Augusta,” Kisner, who was teammates with Reed on the victorious 2016 Presidents' Cup team, told Golf Digest.
