Steve Williams, who caddied for Tiger Woods for 13 years, was as transfixed as any observer when his former employer made a run to his fifth Masters title earlier this month. Williams, who retired to his native New Zealand in 2017, told ESPN in a story published Monday that he hadn't watched any golf on television since retirement -- until Woods was making a run on Sunday at Augusta. Williams said he tuned in from New Zealand -- where it was around 5 a.m. on Monday -- as the final grouping was reaching the 15th hole.

Collin Morikawa holes his second shot in the par 4 opening hole Tuesday for an eagle at the Pac-12 Championships in Eugene, Oregon.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but that's not exactly true when it comes to tour player swings. A golf swing is a complex combination of moving elements, and how those elements work together separates major champions from 90-shooters. We asked Golf Digest 50 Best Teacher Mike Jacobs to help break down some close-up images of eight great players to explain what exactly you can see in the swing—and what's hidden below the surface.

Justin Thomas is the latest PGA Tour player to launch a foundation, and it wasn't anything he threw together overnight. ''We've been talking about it the last couple of years,'' Thomas said. The Justin Thomas Foundation officially launched last Wednesday in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.

Dustin Johnson maintained his position as the world number one on Monday despite collapsing out of contention in the RBC Heritage at Hilton Head. The former US Open champion remains at the top of the latest rankings, holding a slender lead over Justin Rose and his fellow American Brooks Koepka. Johnson took a one-shot advantage into the final round on Sunday, before making four bogeys and two double-bogeys to drop to a tie for 28th.

Tiger Woods has slighted changed the dates to his Hero World Challenge to accommodate one event in Australia. A date that proved problematic for 2019, given the Presidents Cup—which will likely be comprised by at least half the Hero field—is the following week in Melbourne. “There are so many things that are up in the air,” Woods said at last year's Hero.

On Monday, the PGA Tour announced the Denmark star has accepted special temporary membership for the reminder of the 2019 campaign. Bjerregaard nearly missed out on the honor at the WGC in Austin, as a win in the semi-finals or consolation match would have given him enough points to pass Ben Martin's 266 (last season's No. 150 on the FedEx Cup standings, which serves as the benchmark for this status). “Yeah, it's obviously a goal of mine,” Bjerregaard said after he lost to Francesco Molinari.
