From a Golf Channel press release.

UPDATE: Phil Mickelson is going to play.

ORLANDO, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2017) – The PGA TOUR kicks off its West Coast swing this week with the CareerBuilder Challenge in La Quinta, Calif., where tournament ambassador Phil Mickelson hopes to make his 2017 debut, despite undergoing two sports hernia surgeries in recent months. On the European Tour, two of the top-5 players in the world – Dustin Johnson (No. 3) and Henrik Stenson (No. 4) – will tee it up at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, where Rickie Fowler will defend. The 2017 PGA TOUR Champions season begins at the Mitsubishi Electric Championship...

BEN HOGAN WAS ONE OF THE GREATEST golfers to ever play the game. One could argue that no one worked harder to earn his spot on the professional circuit and among other golf legends.

Hogan was not as talented as Byron Nelson and Sam Snead. "The Hawk" (Hogan's nickname) simply didn't give up. The game of golf was his obsession. It consumed him.

Hogan wrote groundbreaking golf instructions books. The first was POWER GOLF published in 1948. Here are the opening lines from the introduction:
CONTRARY to anything you may read on the subject, there is no such individual as a born golfer. Some have more natural ability than others, but they've all been made.​
A page later, Hogan talks about golf scores:
In my opinion the greatest rounds of golf are not shot by the tournament professionals and...​

THE NEWS WAS ANNOUNCED LAST WEEK, so you've probably heard that Jim Furyk was named captain of the 2018 U.S. Ryder Cup team.

"It's been my favorite event of my entire career," Furyk said during the announcement at PGA of America headquarters. "The Ryder Cup embodies everything special about golf."

Furyk has played in nine Ryder Cups and has a losing record (10-20-4). He was an assistant to Captain Davis Love III in the 2016 U.S. romp at Hazeltine. In addition, he has won 17 times on the PGA Tour, including one major, the 2003 U.S. Open.

Apparently, judging from the above Golf Channel clip, not all are happy with this pick.

I'm OK with Furyk. I know he'll do a good job.

As for his playing record, no one of Furyk's generation (Tiger, Phil, etc.) has a good record because Europe has been dominating the Ryder Cup for three decades. I hope that's changed, but we'll see what happens in Paris....

JUSTIN THOMAS OWNED THE HAWAII SWING on the PGA Tour. (I guess they call it the Aloha Slam.) Granted, it's just two events, but Thomas's back-to-back victories at the SBS Tournament of Champions and the Sony Open in Hawaii could not have been more impressive. He shot 49-under par in eight rounds.

Thomas's encore performance at the Sony Open included setting a new PGA Tour scoring record for 72 holes, a total of 253 (27-under par). The red-hot 23-year-old from Kentucky opened with a 59 and followed it up with 64, 65 and 65. He won by seven shots over runner-up Justin Rose. Jordan Spieth finished third.

The way Thomas was playing, the tournament appeared to be over before it was over, as he built a huge lead and set and tied 36- and 54-hole tour scoring records.

But you still have to finish it.

"I was more nervous teeing off today then I was in the other [wins]," Thomas admitted, "I had to turn off Twitter, I couldn't look anymore. It was just like, no one has ever lost a...

Following (and above) is golf course news from the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). The golf industry has often been criticized about environmental impact, and justifiably so. The Olympic Club is helping to set a new standard.

By GCSAA

THE OLYMPIC CLUB IS SHARING its progress toward environmental, social and economic sustainability. The report, developed in collaboration with IMPACT360 Sports, a women-owned independent third party, marks the first comprehensive Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) report in North America within the golf industry, redefining what it means to be a top 100 course and athletic club.

IS THERE ANYTHING HARDER to play in then wind? Not in my experience.

While many of us might like to be in the Bahamas right now, playing golf there this week on the Web.com Tour is pretty brutal. The wind is blowing about 40. The ocean looks angry, as if it might crash onto the golf course and Sandals Emerald Bay at any moment.

The players are braving the harsh conditions as best they can -- and shooting some ridiculously high scores. The cut was 11-over par. That's a Web.com Tour record.

Greg Eason shot 91 and 95. He lost a lot of golf balls. I mean a lot.

"I started with 36 golf balls," Eason said. "I ended with four."

Kyle Thompson currently leads the Bahamas Great Exuma Classic. Hopefully, everyone will...

THIS IS FEEL GOOD STUFF.

From the USGA: "The Glenn Mills Schools is giving at-risk youth a chance at redemption through the virtues of golf."

Enjoy.
