JASON DAY HAS HAD QUITE AN IMPROBABLE life and climb. And he's still only -- what? -- 28. Not exactly a geezer.

Day's story can melt the most cynical among us. He captured a portion of his biography in a "Letter to My Younger Self" at The Players' Tribune.

It begins:
Dear 12-year-old Jason,
I'm telling you the truth, but you're laughing.
There's no chance, you're thinking. No chance. You're thinking I'm crazy. You're thinking that nothing, right now, could be further from possible. You're staring out at that vast, blue Beaudesert sky — it's all sky — and you just can't see it.
But trust me on this one.
You're going to be the No. 1 golfer in the world.
No — I'm serious, mate. No. 1. The top of the mountain.​
So, if you're looking for some inspiration as you begin this Thanksgiving week (if you're in America),...

EVEN THE BEST IN THE WORLD need constant motivation and stimulation and there's no doubt that Rory McIlroy got that in spades in 2015. The impressive way he closed out his third Race to Dubai title in four years by winning his DP World Tour Championship marks him out as a special talent.

The arrival on the scene of Jordan Spieth and Jason Day...

I MET LARRY "WEDGY" WINCHESTER IN JUNE in Seaside, Oregon, where he and his wife run a small inn. Not only did my wife and I happen to stay there, but I learned that Wedgy has quite an interesting history as a golf professional, traveling the world as a trick-shot artist.

This talented fellow also won the 1984 Long Drive Championship -- with a 60-inch driver! Wedgy's winning drive measured 319 yards, 14 inches. (Read the story in the New York Times.)

The below photo of Wedgy and me was taken at Gearheart Golf Links. I watched Wedgy tee off and he striped it down the middle of the 1st fairway. I had several great conversations with Wedgy during my stay on the Oregon Coast.

If you're in the area, look him up. Wedgy is a nice man and a terrific golf ambassador.

Excited to join @Love3D, the other VCs & @RyderCupUSA as a Vice Captain, and help #TeamUSA get a victory in 2016: https://t.co/p5wzvoyOYI

— Tiger Woods (@TigerWoods) November 18, 2015

TIGER WOODS CARES ABOUT THE RYDER CUP. And if anyone questions that commitment, Tiger has already signed on as a vice captain for the 2016 U.S. Ryder Cup team. In fact, Tiger might care more about the Ryder Cup than he ever has, especially since his fitness to compete at a high level is jeopardized by a slew of injuries, surgeries and recoveries.

The captaining phase marks a new beginning and what might be a career transition for the winner of 14 major championships. I expect Tiger will make yet another comeback, but his physical condition and...

The LPGA Tour wraps up its season with the CME Group Tour Championship in Naples, as nine players have a mathematical chance of claiming the season-long Race to the CME Globe prize.

THE YEAR 2015 HAS BEEN DISAPPOINTING for U.S. Open champion Graeme McDowell (aka G-Mac), but the Northern Irishman has kept grinding and it finally paid off today in Mexico.

The Associated Press reported:
PLAYA DEL CARMEN, Mexico (AP) -- Graeme McDowell ended one of his worst calendar years with one of his best shots. He hit an approach to 3 feet for a birdie on the 18th hole Monday to win the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in a three-man playoff.
McDowell, who moved to 7th in the FedExCup standings with his win, closed with a 66 to finish at 18-under 266 which he thought would be only good enough for second place.​

FRED SHOEMAKER HAS A UNIQUE APPROACH to golf, and golf coaching. He is the founder of Extraordinary Golf, which is the name of his golf school founded in 1990 and is also the title of his popular book that published about two decades ago.

Scotty Shoemaker (Fred's nephew) told me in an email, "As a coach, Fred has over 30 years, 42,000 lessons and thousands of schools/workshops under his belt. He has a unique way of coaching that focuses on awareness and bringing out a person's innate abilities."

That's definitely true.

You can sample Fred's unorthodox methods in the above video and by also watching him coach Golf Channel Morning Drive's Damon Hack here.
