PATRICK CANTLAY FIRED A 65 in the final round to win the Zozo Championship at Sherwood Country Club in Thousands Oaks, California. Cantlay finished at 23 under for the week to edge Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas by a stroke. It was Cantlay's third title on the PGA Tour and first in California.

"It's really great to win at home," Cantlay said. "I look forward to hopefully winning at Riviera, and anytime you win close to home it just feels a little sweeter. I felt comfortable all week. I like this cloudy California weather. I'm used to it; it's what I grew up with."

Tiger Woods won his record-tying 82nd PGA Tour title at last year's Zozo Championship in Japan. But Woods and Phil Mickelson, playing together in the final round, finished near the bottom of the leaderboard at Sherwood. Tiger closed with a 74. Phil carded a 78.

The Masters starts in less than three weeks.​

LIBERTY CORNER, N.J. – The USGA announced that due to ongoing health and safety concerns from the COVID-19 pandemic, the 75th U.S. Women's Open Championship, scheduled for Dec. 10-13 at Champions Golf Club in Houston, Texas, will be conducted without spectators on-site.

"Following extensive consultation with health officials, we have decided that hosting the U.S. Women's Open without spectators will provide the best opportunity to conduct the championship safely for all involved," said John Bodenhamer, the USGA's senior managing director of Championships. "While we are disappointed that we won't be able to welcome fans and their unmatched energy at Champions Golf Club, we know this is the right...

"ALTHOUGH PINEHURST'S OLDEST COURSES have persevered for more than a century," reported The Equipment Insider (at MORNING READ), "the resort's new hickory club rental program allows golfers to experience a round as it was played in a bygone era."

New England-based journalist Shaun Tolson had the good fortune to play Pinehurst No. 3 with a set of hickories and write about it for MORNING READ.

Here's a sample:


"It's a fun experience for individuals who have never done it and also for people who might play hickories once or twice a year," [Pinehurst head pro Matt] Barksdale said of renting a set and playing the No. 1 course, the No. 3 course, or The Cradle, Pinehurst's nine-hole short course. (Although the hickory clubs can be rented for play...​

THE ANNOUNCING CREW AT THE 2020 U.S. OPEN seemed obsessed with "The Bombers" -- players who drove the ball extreme distances with little regard for the occasional tee shot into the rough. TV has selected Bryson DeChambeau as their representative given his length and victory.

I thought I'd wait a bit to see what the industry sources had to say. I can't say it's unanimous because I haven't seen everything, but the theme is: Get Ready for The Golfer of Tomorrow:

  • 350 yard carry
  • Clubhead speed which tears through the rough allowing the ball to launch high and carry to the green.
  • The "new" instructor...

I ran across this and other historical golf films on the USGA app included with my new Roku TV. You can also find them on YouTube. It's hard to believe how grainy and primitive the coverage was nearly 50 years ago. I don't remember it that way. I watched this and other major championships during my teens. This was the last time I remember Arnold Palmer (54-hole leader) contending in a major.

By USGA


HEADING INTO THE FINAL ROUND of the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont Country Club, there was a four-way tie for the lead, including Arnold Palmer seeking his second title. Luminaries Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player and Lee Trevino were also in the mix. Not talked about was Johnny Miller, who went from third place after 36 holes to six strokes behind the leaders heading into Sunday after a third-round 76.

But four birdies through four holes changed the conversation quickly. Here's Johnny Miller’s historic final round of the 1973 U.S. Open....

THE BRITISH ARE COMING to play these days on professional circuits around the globe.

"[O]n pretty much every tour British players are showing up well," wrote BBC golf correspondent Iain Carter, "even among the seniors...."

This past weekend two Brits won events and others have posted high finishes or clutched trophies in recent weeks.

Carter wrote:


Within hours of [Tyrrell Hatton] lifting the BMW PGA Championship trophy, British fans were also able to celebrate another win, with Scotland's Martin Laird claiming victory on the PGA Tour in Las Vegas.

These are good times for British golf.

Wolverhampton's Aaron Rai had already demonstrated his rich potential by winning this month's Scottish Open and in the Women's PGA, Charley Hull enjoyed a creditable share of seventh at the tough Aronimink Golf Club in...​

PGA TOUR Statement on Dustin Johnson

PGA TOUR member Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from THE CJ CUP @ SHADOW CREEK after testing positive for COVID-19. Experiencing symptoms, Johnson notified PGA TOUR officials and was administered a test, with the positive result forcing his withdrawal from the event.

Johnson, who last competed at the U.S. Open, will have the PGA TOUR's full support throughout his self-isolation period under CDC guidelines.

"Obviously, I am very disappointed," said Johnson. "I was really looking forward to competing this week, but will do everything I can to return as quickly as possible. I have already had a few calls with the TOUR's medical team and appreciate all the support and guidance they have given me."

First alternate J.T. Poston will replace Johnson in the field.

"The No. 1 player in golf is the 11th player to receive a positive test since the PGA Tour resumed its schedule," reported the Associated Press....
