Tiger Woods in 2000.​
TIGER WOODS TURNS 39 ON December 30. It seems like an old 39 to me, but I realize that 39 isn't that old. It's just that Tiger has been around forever, in a sense. He broke into the professional golf ranks at age 20, and it's not like we didn't know about him before that.

Tiger didn't play much golf in 2014, but that didn't stop the media mill from churning out copious material on the greatest golfer of this era. I've lost track of the comebacks from injuries, the swing coaches (four?), the controversies, the rumors, the uncomfortable press conferences and the "is what it is's."

But Golf.com reminded me of the kid who picked up a golf club when he first started walking around in Cypress, California. Their photo...

2014 was the year the U.S. Open returned to Pinehurst No. 2, evoking memories of the late Payne Stewart, who captured his second U.S. Open title at Pinehurst in 1999. The USGA selected Stewart as the recipient of the 2014 Bob Jones Award and produced the above profile, which features family members and fellow PGA Tour pros such as Paul Azinger and Peter Jacobsen.


Payne Stewart tragically passed away in an airplane accident on October 25, 1999. Earlier this year, the two-time U.S. Open champion was named the 2014 Bob Jones Award honoree. Presented annually since 1955, the Bob Jones Award is the USGA's highest honor, recognizing an individual who demonstrates the utmost spirit, personal character and respect for the game. Known for his passion for golf, sportsmanship and philanthropy, Payne Stewart won 11 professional events during an 18-year PGA...

HARRY VARDON WON THE OPEN CHAMPIONSHIP a record six times. Only one other player has won a major golf championship six times. His name is Jack Nicklaus. There's the famous Vardon grip. Trophies that bear Vardon's name are awarded each year by the PGA Tour and European Tour.

Harry the Great​
The influence of a man whose prime was a century ago lives on.

In a New York Times feature that published in July, Pulitzer Prize-winning sportswriter Dave Anderson asked, "Who knows how many more [Opens] Vardon might have won if, two weeks after his sixth, World War I had not been sparked by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo. The Open would not be played again until 1920, when Vardon was 50."

The only major championships during the early 20th century were The Open Championship and the U.S. Open. That's just two...

Greg Chalmers​
GREG CHALMERS PUT IN A LONG day at the office on Sunday. But it was a very good day for the 41-year-old western Australian.

Chalmers outlasted Wade Ormsby and Masters champion Adam Scott in a seven-hole playoff to win the Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines on the Gold Coast. The southpaw also won the Aussie PGA title in 2011.

After ho-hum play that left him seven shots off the pace coming into Sunday, Chalmers got red hot on his final trip around Royal Pines. The veteran carded eight birdies, including one on the final hole earned him a spot in the playoff, to post a 64.

Ormsby and Scott both shot 71 on the final 18. Ormsby dropped out of the playoff on the third extra hole.

''Just phenomenal, I'm worn...

MOVE OVER CBS, NBC AND GOLF CHANNEL. Or at least make room.

With its mega deal to telecast the U.S. Open, Fox Sports is jumping into golf in a big way. A trial run begins this week with the network's coverage of the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

The AP's Greg Handel reported:

For the first time, Fox Sports is getting into the golf business. Norman will join Joe Buck in the broadcast booth. They also will work the U.S. Open this summer.
Fox will employ 73 microphones, 24 cameras, 10 replay machines, seven broadcasters and five audio mixers for the tournament.
"I come at this as a guy who just loves the game and...

THE PGA TOUR ANNOUNCED A CHANGE to the points awarded during the FedEx Cup Playoffs. PGATour.com reported:
Beginning in 2015, The Barclays, Deutsche Bank Championship, BMW Championship and TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola will award 2,000 points for a victory (down from 2,500) with all other places being reduced by the same proportion. The intent, Finchem said, is to place a greater emphasis on season-long excellence while still maintaining the element of volatility and movement throughout the Playoffs.
"Every year since the FedExCup was introduced in 2007, we have reviewed the points structure with the Player Advisory Council and four Player Directors who sit on the Policy Board,"...

Johnny McDermott​
FOLLOWING HIS U.S. OPEN WINS, Johnny McDermott, our first "homebred" U. S. Open winner, entered the 1914 British Open, but because of travel delays he arrived too late to tee off. Returning home to the States his ship, the Kaiser Wilhelm II, collided with an English ship and sank. He drifted in a lifeboat in the middle of the Atlantic for over 24 hours before being rescued.

When he did reach America, he learned he had been wiped out financially because of bad Wall Street investments and needed to take a job as the golf pro at the Atlantic City Country Club. He was then 23 years old and he quit playing tournament golf. Within a few years players couldn’t even recall his name or what he had won....
