When in China. https://t.co/ab5QMgwRPL

— The European Tour (@EuropeanTour) April 26, 2016

THE MOST INTERESTING GOLFER in the world hit yesterday's most interesting golf shot in the world. Maybe the unusual scene gave Pete Dye some diabolical new design ideas.

(This clip might be my favorite from the 2015 U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.)

It's not too early to think about the U.S. Open coming to Oakmont Country Club in June. It should be a dandy. Carnage everywhere.

FOX Sports had a bumpy start as the USGA's new broadcast partner last year. Minus Greg Norman, they're back and trumpeting the 2016 broadcast team. This year should be better. Fingers crossed.

By FOX Sports

With the start of the 2016 USGA championship season less than one month away, FOX Sports announced its complete on-air roster, featuring the addition of several experienced contributors and highlighted by the addition of World Golf Hall of Famer and two-time U.S. Open champion Curtis Strange as an on-course reporter and analyst.

In his new role for FOX Sports in 2016, Strange serves as an on-course reporter and analyst for the 116th U.S. Open Championship at Oakmont Country Club, the U.S. Senior Open at Scioto Country Club, the U.S. Amateur at Oakland...

CHARLEY HOFFMAN MADE A 9-FOOT birdie putt on the final hole to win the Valero Texas Open on Sunday.

The 39-year-old Hoffman closed with a 3-under 69 at TPC San Antonio for a one-stroke victory over Patrick Reed. Hoffman finished at 12-under 276 and earned $1,116,000 for his fourth PGA TOUR victory.

"This was my hardest one," Hoffman said after a vigorous fist-pump and drill-team leg kick when the winning putt fell at 18. "Grabbing that lead and holding on to it -- it's tough to keep the pedal down and give yourself birdie opportunities and win golf tournaments."

(Another occasional off-golf-topic piece because, after thousands of golf stories, I want to share other stories. Thanks for reading.)

The coveted baseball card I once had.​
THEY CALLED HIM "THE SAY HEY KID" when he broke into major league baseball with the New York Giants in 1951.

Willie Mays, 20, was perhaps the most complete player baseball had ever seen. Mays was a "five-tool player." He could hit, hit for power, run, throw and field.

My goodness, could Willie field. His official position was center field, but he roamed much of the outfield in the vast Polo Grounds.

When a teammate was once asked what position he played, he replied: "Me and Willie Mays play left field."

In the 1954 World Series, Mays made what is arguably the greatest catch in baseball history. The catch robbed Vic...

Part two of two on golf legend Harry Vardon (1870-1937). Read Part 1.

WE KNOW HARRY VARDON BEST for his overlapping grip. Some accounts have it first being used by Johnny Laidlay, a champion Scottish amateur player. J. H. Taylor also used it before Vardon, but it was Vardon, who played with the grip in 1890s, who popularized it.

The grip is the most common used one today, that and the interlock grip. As we know with the Vardon grip the right little finger overlaps the left index finger. The overlap grip takes the little finger of the right hand off the shaft. This has the effect of slightly weakening the right hand. Since most golfers are right-handed, the overlap grip...

Part one of two on golf legend Harry Vardon (1870-1937).

By John Coyne

HENRY WILLIAM "HARRY" VARDON, who is credited with giving golf the modern swing and the Vardon grip, published a book in 1922 entitled The Gist of Golf. I came across a reissue recently, published in 1999 by the Rutledge Hill Press of Nashville, Tennessee. For this printing, Rutledge added a useful Glossary to explain such names as "baffy," as well as "howk" and "foozling." Now, we all know golf is a difficult game, but so can be golf terminology.

"I'm the best and I'll thank you to remember that,"
Harry Vardon once said.​
The book is a delightful collection...
