Greetings, golf fans! Are you feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of golf news these days? We feel you! To help you keep up with golf-world happenings, here, in one handy place, is what you missed on GOLF.com last week:
What you missed last week…
— The Americans won the Presidents Cup — surprise, surprise — defeating the Internationals 17.5-12.5. Yet playing out under the cloud of LIV Golf and who wasn’t at Quail Hollow, the Presidents Cup emphatically finished with who was in Charlotte.
— In another lopsided match-play victory at the Presidents Cup, we got more affirmation we’re in the good old days of American golf.
— The Internationals, on the other hand, lost their ninth straight Presidents Cup. But the way in which captain Trevor Immelman led and carried himself made it difficult not to pull for him.
— Screaming, fist-pumping, putt-dropping Tom Kim captured hearts and minds at the Presidents Cup, where the 20-year-old earned star status. Even in defeat, golf’s newest superstar had an epic week.
— LIV golfers want to earn world ranking points from LIV Golf events. But the OWGR has not been quick to recognize them. Here’s why it’s all so complicated.
— You know who wasn’t at Quail Hollow? Tiger Woods. He was busy caddying for his son Charlie’s career-low round.
