Jamieson Again Takes A Liking To His ‘Special’ Tournament Venue

Hovland Matches Tiger Woods Winning Back-To-Back Hero World Challenge

.… Albany, The Bahamas  Vicktor Hovland was aged only 10-years when tournament host Tiger Woods in 2007 successfully defended the Hero World Challenge. Until this week, and in the 23rd hosting of the event, Woods was the only player to win the event two years in succession.

​No Hug From Lowry But The Customary Pleasantries To End His Season In The Bahamas

  .. Albany, The Bahamas.​ ​“Any chance I can also get a hug?” A very brave question to Shane Lowry soon after he left a scorer’s hut for a final occasion this year and also after he presented signed golf​ balls,​ as is customary, to the walking scorer and marker, ​ahead of ​embrac​ing​​ waiting manager Brian Moran. Lowry then made his way in my direction, and like the good journalist I ensured he had to pass by me to get to the clubhouse. It’s when I bravely asked ...

We Miss Rickie Fowler & His Victory Champagne

.. Albany, The Bahamas  The appearance of a carton of beer in the fridge of the Hero World Challenge media centre reminded me of Richie Fowler. Let me explain. American Kevin Kisner celebrated just a second PGA Tour ace in his career in holing out, using a 6-iron at the par-3 12th hole on day three of the Hero World Challenge. There was no brand new Hero motor-bike nor the keys to a luxury Albany apartment but just the honour on the next tee, on route to Kisner posting a 77 and slump to a share ...

Tiger Woods: “I Told Charlie Don’t Copy My Swing, Copy Rory’s”

... Albany, The Bahamas  ​For a second occasion in a few days, Tiger Woods has singled out Rory McIlroy for special praise.

Woods, who withdrew from teeing-up in the tournament he hosts, was speaking with NBC Golf during their coverage here from the Albany course ...
