Thomas: "Yeah, I kind of learned the hard way to stop doing anything to him because like he said he gets a little..." Thomas: "Yeah, a little aggressive. He moved my car in a parking lot to a couple of lots over during a pro-am and I couldn't get hold of him and I couldn't get anywhere so that wasn't very fun." 'Act our age' They have competed against each other since they were 13 years old, but Spieth made his major breakthrough first, winning both the Masters and the US Open in 2015 on the way to becoming world No.1. This season he clinched a third major title with victory at the Open in July, but Thomas followed that a month later with his first major win at the US PGA Championship. He added

Generally speaking, you can expect stadiums to be jam-packed full of teeming and gross humanity: Cheering, screaming, singing throngs of people who have gathered together to pay $75 for parking and sit in four hours of endless postgame gridlock to enjoy the communal experience of things like rooting for the Cleveland Browns, I guess. What happens when you find yourself in a stadium that’s mostly empty, because the team is hot garbage, because they got bounced out of the playoff race, because they play football in Los Angeles, because you elected to buy Indiana football season tickets for some reason? It’s an eerie feeling, sitting in a place designed for tens of thousands and being surrounded by a couple hundreds, with every whistle, boo and call echoing off the empty seats.

Scottish veteran Catriona Matthew said it was a "dream come true" being named captain of the Europe team for the 2019 Solheim Cup which will be held on the renowned Gleneagles course in Scotland. The 48-year-old, who was Europe's standout player in their recent Solheim Cup 16 1/2-11 1/2 whipping by the United States, contributing three of their points, says the biennial event has a unique atmosphere. "It's a great honour and a dream come true to be the captain at home in Scotland," Matthew told the Ladies European Tour website.

ATLANTA – Making it to East Lake for the season send-off is a singular accomplishment for any PGA Tour player. It validates months, years of hard work and commitment. It’s a reward for a season that ranks among the top 30 on the world’s biggest stage and brings a mountain of rewards that allow players to ease into next season with the closest thing the Tour has to job security. But for Gary Woodland, the 6-foot-1 former college point guard whose intensity on the course is matched only by his approachability when the scorecard is signed, his fifth trip to Atlanta goes much deeper than a particular professional accomplishment. “This year means more to me than any other, it really does,” Woodland

Associated Press BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- Nicholas Lindheim and Matt Atkins each shot 6-under 64 to share the first-round lead at the DAP Championship, the third of four events in the Tour Finals. Lindheim began his round by holing his second shot on the short par-4 10th hole at Canterbury Golf Club. He shot 6-under 29 on his first nine before coming home in even par. The event is the third of four tournaments that determine 25 PGA Tour cards. The series features the top 75 players from the regular-season money list, Nos. 126-200 in the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings and non-members with enough money to place in the top 200 in the FedEx Cup had they been eligible. Lindheim, a PGA Tour

The Houston, Texas, area is quite the hotbed of junior golfers: Cole Hammer, Ben Wong, Mason Nome and Travis Vick, just to name a few. Oh, and recent Vanderbilt commit William Moll, who verbally committed to the Commodores for the Class of 2019 earlier this month. Moll, a 16-year-old from Houston Memorial High School, picked Vandy after also making visits to Baylor, Ole Miss, Rice, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and Virginia. “I am really excited and blessed to have committed to play golf at Vanderbilt University,” Moll told Golfweek. “I chose Vanderbilt because of the outstanding program that Coach (Scott) Limbaugh has built since he arrived, and because the university is such an incredible academic
