Thompson needs to tell her side of ANA incident (Apr 24, 2017 3:08pm) Lexi Thompson’s agent asked the LPGA in strong terms for a “true and transparent accounting” of the details of the viewer’s intervention that impacted the outcome of the ANA Inspiration three weeks ago. When Thompson meets the media for the first time since a four-shot penalty derailed her chance at winning a second major championship, there will be an accounting due there, too. While LPGA players may be “up in arms” over yet another TV viewer’s intervention, as a prominent major champion told GolfChannel.com last week, you aren’t hearing players step up to defend the way Thompson marked her ball. In fact, there has been curious silence on that front from the LPGA player ranks, even among players asked directly about it at the Lotte Championship the week after the ANA.Kevin Chappell wins first PGA Tour title with 72nd-hole birdie (Apr 23, 2017 8:50pm) After six second-place finishes, rising into the 30 in the world and easily holding the mantle as the Best Player Without a PGA Tour Win, Kevin Chappell broke through for his first victory on Sunday at the Valero Texas Open — in his 180th-career start. Chappell won in dramatic fashion over Brooks Koepka, who closed at TPC San Antonio’s AT&T Oaks Course with a 7-under 65 to draw even on the final hole. The ball went in the left side of the hole, giving Chappell the win and the opportunity to release years of frustration of coming up just shy.
Language in Tiger Woods' statements put golf on back burner, possibly for good (Apr 24, 2017 3:28pm) Tiger Woods will never officially retire. No golfer ever really retires. Other athletes retire so that they can play golf, and golfers just ... keep playing golf. Retirement in golf for superstars means "transitioning onto the PGA Tour Champions and doing fewer commercials," so why would you hold a press conference for something like that? Woods has too much to lose by making a formal announcement. The future hope of him once again teeing it up and club-twirling his way down the fairways at Augusta National or St. Andrews feeds the machine that is Tiger Woods as a corporation. And the incentive to turn that off is not lofty. So Woods will linger and maybe play a little or possibly play a lotUpdate: Yup, Sergio Garcia is still living the dream (Apr 23, 2017 1:56pm) Last time we saw Sergio Garcia, he was winning his long-awaited first major at the 2017 Masters. He was super happy about it. He continued being happy about it throughout his barnstorming tour through New York City. And what’s he doing now? Well, after scoring an invitation to Rory McIlroy’s wedding on Saturday, he spent Sunday attending Real Madrid’s match against Barcelona (he’s a lifelong Madrid fan), IN HIS GREEN JACKET. He even got to get the match underway. So, basically: Yea, life is pretty good for Sergio Garcia right now.
Vijay Singh, Carlos Franco team up to win Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf (Apr 23, 2017 9:21pm) Carlos Franco and Vijay Singh teamed to shoot a course-record 12-under par on Sunday to rally from seven shots behind and win the PGA Tour Champions' Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Wiesberger began the final round with a three-shot lead, but Fleetwood caught up with a final-round 63 that included birdies on four of his final six holes. Wiesberger parred each of his last 11 holes in regulation, and then managed to birdie the first playoff hole to clinch the win. Wiesberger entered the week ranked No. 43 in the world, and this marks his first European Tour win since the 2015 Open de France. It also continues a remarkable run of consistency as he has racked up eight worldwide top-5 finishes since his last missed cut at the PGA Championship in July. "I've had
