Phil Mickelson returns with scrambling 68 at La Quinta

Phil Mickelson hit his opening tee shot so poorly in morning rain and cold that he hit a provisional ball just to get in another swing.

He scrambled to par the hole and went on to shoot a 4-under 68 on Thursday in the CareerBuilder Challenge, leaving him four strokes back in his return from two sports hernia surgeries.

He won't get away with wayward drives this week. Too bad the Canadian Adam Hadwin didn't
get the win as he shot a 59 in the 3rd round. But 2nd pays really nice too :D

Tiger Woods, who has played just one tournament in 17 months as he recovered from two surgeries to his back in the fall of 2015, makes his return to the PGA Tour starting Thursday in the Farmers Insurance Open at his beloved Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego.

It will be the first of four events in five weeks, a schedule that also includes a trip to the Middle East for the Dubai Desert Classic the week after the Farmers — a flight involving 12 time zones — then back-to-back playing dates in the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club north of Los Angeles and the Honda Classic in Florida. The heavy assignment will severely test Woods’ game, his endurance and, he knows, his back.

Tiger Woods falters with late bogeys en route to opening 76 at Torrey Pines

The idyllic golf course on the Pacific Ocean that has been the place of so many Tiger Woods highlights over the years did not produce any such memories Thursday during his first round of 2017.

Tiger Woods pulls out of Genesis Open, Honda Classic

The back spasms that forced Tiger Woods to withdraw from a tournament in Dubai last week will keep him out of his next two scheduled starts as well.

Woods announced on his website Friday that he will skip next week's Genesis Open at Riviera and the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, the following week due to ongoing back spasms.

With latest WD, drama surrounding Tiger only increases

So, here's what we know in the ever-evolving drama of As the Tiger (Can't Make Full) Turns:

Tiger Woods has a lingering back injury that is preventing him from playing the Genesis Open this week. As tournament host for the first time, he is on-site here at Riviera Country Club. His pretournament news conference, originally scheduled for Tuesday, was moved to Wednesday, then canceled altogether. The explanation given is that Woods has been "advised by doctors to limit all activities."

I can't see Tiger playing in the Masters - especially when he isn't at his best

Tiger Woods to miss Masters for third time in four years

Tiger Woods announced Friday that he will not play the Masters next week as he continues to recover from back issues, the third time in four years that he won't compete in the year's first major championship.

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, told ESPN on Friday night that Woods was cleared by his doctors and therapists to play and that the back spasms that sidelined him in February and plagued him for a few weeks had subsided.

Sergio Garcia conquers all at the Masters

You might think golf fans show up at a tournament waiting for the 20-car pileup, waiting to feel better about their own swings, maybe their own lives, when some tormented soul relives Greg Norman's worst nightmare on the back nine. But the Masters has always been about the career-making recovery, not the heartbreaking crash, which is why Sergio Garcia felt like he was playing his home course near the east coast of Spain.

Tiger Woods has surgery to alleviate pain in his back, leg

Tiger Woods had lower right back fusion surgery Wednesday in hopes of alleviating the ongoing pain that has plagued him in recent years, effectively ending his 2017 golf season.

The 14-time major champion announced the surgery on his website Thursday.

Tiger Woods was arrested on Monday in Florida on a charge of driving under the influence, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.
The 41-year-old golfer was arrested around 3am on Military Trail, south of Indian Creek Parkway in Jupiter.
Arrest information shows Woods was booked into jail at 7:18am and then released on his own recognizance at 10:50am.
He faces a charge of driving under the influence of either alcohol or drugs. Police have yet to specify which, if not both. Florida's legal limit for blood alcohol is .08.
Woods lives in the elite enclave of Jupiter Island, but was driving southbound, away from his home at the time.
TMZ reports that Woods was driving a 2015 Mercedes. Cops originally planned to tow the vehicle before a friend of Woods retrieved it.
This is the second time that Woods has been caught driving under the influence.

The official word from the Tiger camp is due out tomorrow, but I think it'll revolve around this.....

"Sleep driving" is defined by the FDA as "driving while not fully awake after ingestion of a sedative-hypnotic product, with no memory of the event". Ambien and other popular sleeping medications like Lunesta are sedative-hypnotic products that can cause this condition.
Sleep driving while under the influence of Ambien or Lunesta occurs after you take the medication, go to sleep, unknowingly wake up (and start sleep-walking) and then drive a car. It's a growing danger, as hundreds of people continue to suffer from DUI/DWI Ambien arrests.
Even though sleep driving has become a recognized phenomenon, and akin to sleep-walking, it is nevertheless illegal. If you use Ambien, Lunesta or any other "sedative-hypnotic" medication and then drive, you face conviction for a state Driving Under the Influence/Driving While Intoxicated of drugs.

Athlete roots run deep for new U.S. Open champ Brooks Koepka

Bob Koepka was crying on the phone, and why the hell not? He was an old college pitcher out of West Virginia Wesleyan, and he had just watched his son throw a perfect game at the U.S. Open.

It is going to be hard to top last years championship (Stenson v.s. Mickelson) but they'll try. :D
Took a bunch of bombers my biggest being Tom Lehman @600-1 who is a past winner and having
a good year on the seniors tour. Links golf seems to favor experience and patience. Also took Kyle Stanley @150-1
Dustin Johnson leader after 1st round @ 26-1 and Phil to win at 35-1 good luck
