ORLANDO, Fla. (April 25, 2017)
– The PGA TOUR moves to Louisiana this week to unveil an exciting new format at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. 80 two-man teams will compete in a 72-hole event that will feature a stroke play, alternate-shot format in the first and third rounds, and a better-ball format in the second and final rounds. The LPGA Tour this week boasts a field that includes the entire top-20 in the current Rolex Women’s World Rankings, all convening at the Volunteers of American Texas Shootout. The European Tour will stage the Volvo China Open in Beijing, as Haotong Li is set to defend his 2016 title.

I RECENTLY HAD CONTACT WITH TONY JACKLIN, who has been great to me in recent years. We first got acquainted beginning in 2012 and as I wrote DRAW IN THE DUNES about him and Jack Nicklaus at the 1969 Ryder Cup at Royal Birkdale.

I was searching for something when I ran across the above oddity in Jacklin's breakout 1969 season, during which he won the Open Championship at Royal Lytham & St. Annes.

As you'll hear in the clip, Walter Hagen and Jack Nicklaus also drove golf balls across the Thames.

Reporting in January on "An Evening with Tony Jacklin," the Bradenton Herald wrote: "[T]he video showed him ripping a drive 356 yards from the top of a building in England across the Thames River.

(It was atop the Savoy Hotel.)

"That was a publicity stunt," Jacklin said. "... There was a ship in the Thames with a ... light measuring the distances. They made a performance of bringing the golf balls on the silver tray. ... When you swing and looking at traffic down (there),...

This could also be called the Lexi Thompson decision after her fiasco at the ANA Inspiration. It's also a long time coming. Video review scenarios have created many problems for major championship golf in recent years. The ruling bodies have now spoken. The following is from a USGA press release.

FAR HILLS, N.J., USA AND ST. ANDREWS, SCOTLAND (April 25, 2017) - The USGA and The R&A have issued a new Decision on the Rules of Golf to limit the use of video evidence in the game, effective immediately.

LPGA PHENOM LYDIA KO HAS GONE through nine caddies in her career. Ko is 19. (She will be 20 in less than a week.) Look, I'm just an "armchair golfer" who writes about the game. I don't know what it's like between the ropes or to be an elite golfer.

But nine caddies at 19? There's something wrong here, right?

Ko's latest caddie, Gary Matthews, was canned after nine events. Ko finished runner-up to Cristie Kerr at the LPGA Lotte Championship in Hawaii this past weekend, but that didn't help her bag man.

"What was so strange for me," Matthews told Tim Rosaforte, "we worked unbelievably well in Hawaii, the communication and everything was just phenomenal."

Added Matthews: "I wish her the best, but...

WESLEY BRYAN WON THE RBC HERITAGE by a shot on Sunday at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Bryan, 27, played college golf for University of South Carolina. It was his first title on the PGA Tour.

"At the end of the day, it doesn't really change anything other than I now have one PGA Tour victory," Bryan said in USA TODAY. "There are a lot of guys that have just one PGA Tour victory. My one goal is to get number two at this point."

Four shots back as Sunday began, Bryan charged to the top with a 4-under 67 to edge Luke Donald. The newest PGA Tour winner celebrated with his wife at Taco Bell and then answered questions on Facebook Live, wearing the Tartan jacket.
