Thankfully, perhaps miraculously, Tiger Woods survived a horrific car accident on Tuesday and has come through surgeries that saved his leg and much more. We've been told he is "in good spirits." A long recovery begins.

The last few days there has been a lot of interest in (and comparison to) Ben Hogan and his head-on collision with a bus 72 years ago. I wrote about it in my book
THE LONGEST SHOT. Here's an excerpt.


January 10, 1949​
ON FEBRUARY 2, 1949, GROUNDHOG DAY, Ben Hogan swung his Cadillac onto Highway 80 in Van Horn, Texas, en route to Fort Worth 500 miles to the east. He and wife Valerie were anxious to return home after the season-opening tour events, two of which Hogan won, the Bing Crosby Pro-Am and the Long Beach Open.

Encountering patches of dense fog and a surface thinly...​

IF YOU'VE BEEN FOLLOWING the Tiger Woods story, there may be nothing new here.

But I found this story in the Los Angeles Times (published Wednesday morning) to be a thorough recap of the single-vehicle crash, Tiger's injuries, and the apparently dangerous stretch of road where he lost control of his SUV and "rolled and rolled."

First, the injuries, which as the Times said in their headline, "cloud his future in golf":
Woods was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center where he underwent "a long surgical procedure" on his lower right leg and ankle, according to a statement the golf legend released on Twitter late Tuesday. Doctors had to insert a rod into his leg and placed screws into his foot and ankle, according to the...​

SOCAL'S MAX HOMA WON THE GENESIS INVITAITONAL at iconic Riviera Country Club in a sudden-death playoff with Tony Finau. Homa's par on the second playoff hole, the 14th, finished off Finau, who was bunkered and couldn't get up and down.

It was the second PGA Tour title for Homa. It couldn't have been much more special for a young man who grew up 30 minutes away, had attended the tournament since he was a toddler, and idolized tournament host Tiger Woods, who handed over the hardware.

Homa struck an exquisite pitching wedge to about 3 feet at the home hole, but didn't convert the tournament-winning birdie because he was "shaking like a leaf."

"I was just a little nervous, honestly," Homa said. "This tournament means a lot to me."

Somehow he had to gather himself for the playoff. A phone call with his wife Lacey helped.

Homa said, "I think I choked a little bit."

Lacey reiterated the message she offered at the start of the round: "Forgive quickly."

That's a message Finau also...

As someone who grew up loving this game, I have always had huge respect for the USGA and its role in leading our sport. The game has given me so much throughout my life, both personally and professionally. I know I have a lot to learn, but I'm truly excited about this role, as it gives me the opportunity to not only give back to the game, but to also work hard to leave it stronger.

By USGA

LIBERTY CORNER, N.J. – The USGA announced today that Mike Whan will join the organization this summer as CEO, and will become the eighth top executive in USGA history.

Last month, Whan announced his intention to step down as LPGA Commissioner in 2021, after his organization completes a search for the next Commissioner. His transition follows an impressive 11...

DANIEL BERGER WON THE AT&T PEBBLE BEACH PRO-AM with an eagle on the final hole.

Now that we have that out of the way, I wanted to share the above tee shot by Francesco Molinari. A British Open champion.

I'm usually not eager to focus on the misfortune of the world's greatest golfers, but I admit that it's always eye-opening when they hit a shot like a duffer. To be honest, it seems to surprise me every time. I guess it shouldn't.

Here's ESPN's description:

For the record, his opening shot went just 70 yards, not making it past the forward tee box. He scrambled his way...​

PGATOUR.COM HAS SOME GOOD longform content. But you have to scroll to the bottom of the site to find it. Once you do, there are some gems.

Like this 2017 story by Helen Ross, on Calvin Peete. It's the kind of story that makes you want to get back on the course and play golf. To hit some balls and practice your short game on a lonely muni.

Calvin Peete faced seemingly every barrier to the game of golf. He was black. He started too late. He had a bad left arm. The list goes on.

Here's an excerpt from Helen's feature on Peete, describing his first round (with rented clubs):
"[Calvin Peete] said when he first put his hands on a golf club, it felt like that's where they belonged," [Pete] McDaniel said. "He had found his calling, and then he knew that...​
