    Billie Eilish Opens Up About Her Split from Ex-Boyfriend Q: I Just Wasnt Happy John Travoltas $5m Maine mansion has just hit the market ORLANDO, Florida – Patty Tavatanakit’s biggest weapon on Sunday at the Gainbridge LPGA might be the man carrying her bag. Former PGA Tour player Grant Waite works as Tavatanakit’s coach and took her up on caddying for the first two weeks of her season so that he could get a close-up look at how she works inside the ropes. Tavatanakit, 21, said she feels secure having Waite beside her and it shows.

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rory McIlroy was on a shuttle ride back to the Liberty National clubhouse in August 2019 when he was surprised to hear during a chat about tour policies that no foreign-born player has ever served on the PGA Tour policy board. “That’s going to change,” McIlroy said with a smile. The change arrived Tuesday when McIlroy, from Northern Ireland, won a player election as chairman of the Player Advisory Council, the 16-man committee that provides input to the four players who serve on the board. As chairman, McIlroy will move up to the board next year and begin a three-year term, replacing Jordan Spieth. McIlroy won the election over American Kevin Streelman and Russell Knox of Scotland. The policy board dates to 1969, the first year the PGA Tour broke away from the PGA of America. Why it took so long for a foreign-born player to...

He and other players routinely use $25,000 Trackman launch monitor devices to optimize their swing and ball speeds, ball spin and other parameters to gain an advantage over rivals. After boosting his workouts and putting on 20 pounds, DeChambeau averaged over 330 yards per drive last year, and recently said he’s gunning for driver ball speeds of 210 MPH in 2021 — 40 MPH beyond the average on tour.

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Sergio Garcia pulled out of the Masters on Monday after informing Augusta National he tested positive for the coronavirus, making him the second player to withdraw following a positive test. Garcia won his only major at the Masters three years ago in his 19th appearance, the most of any player before winning a green jacket. Joaquin Niemann of Chile previously announced over the weekend he tested positive and withdrew. Garcia played last week in the Houston Open, which sold 2,000 tickets each day. It was the first domestic PGA Tour event that allowed limited spectators on the course. Garcia missed the cut.

    ATLANTA (AP) — Dustin Johnson won the silver trophy as the FedEx Cup champion. Odds are he soon will pick up another trophy, this one a bronze variety in the image of Jack Nicklaus. The vote for PGA Tour player of the year was up in the air going into the Tour Championship, with only one major being played and six players with multiple victories. The winner at East Lake was thought to be the front-runner. Johnson’s victory gave him three titles this season, tied with Justin Thomas. With the short turnaround to the new season — two days between the final putt at East Lake and the opening drive at the Safeway Open in California — the ballots were going out this week to the players. For the PGA Tour player of the year, the candidates were Johnson, Thomas, PGA champion Collin Morikawa (two wins), Webb Simpson (two wins)...

    It’s hard to find a reason to like Bryson DeChambeau. It’s even harder to take your eyes off him. He smashes jaw-dropping drives that seem to defy the very physics on which he bases his game. Bulked up on protein shakes and M&M’s, DeChambeau has so far this year been making a mockery of golf courses designed by architects who had no idea what golf of the future might look like. In a sport where conformity is king, he is the most compelling player not named Tiger Woods. If there were fans at Harding Park in San Francisco this week for the PGA Championship, they would be crowding tee boxes to ooh and aah at every massive swing he takes. Then there’s the DeChambeau without the driver in his hands. He plays so slowly he annoys even his fellow tour pros. At a tournament last year DeChambeau walked 100 yards...
