Golf can be a cruel game. Briny Baird found that out Sunday as he bogeyed the final hole of the McGladrey Classic to finish one shot behind winner Chris Kirk. But there was also a silver lining for the 41-year-old.
More than 85 PGA Tour caddies met Tuesday during the McGladrey Classic to discuss their recent creation of the Association of Professional Tour Caddies. They have organized in an attempt to improve working conditions and deal with myriad issues, most notably the lack of a group health care plan.

Rory McIlroy returns at this week’s Korea Open after a month off. From golf, anyway. Not from headlines. He answers question about off-course reason related to business and his girlfriend.

The six Thursday matchups for the Presidents Cup have been determined. But, for the sake of the International team’s chances and cup growth, the pairings are not as important as the opening-day format itself.
Tiger Woods was "happy and chill" at his pre-Presidents Cup interview on Tuesday. Why you ask? He's at the Presidents, a.k.a. Ryder Cup Lite says Golfweek's Jeff Rude.
The Presidents Cup should be more of a barnburner than a barnstormer. An International uprising next week would help.

After not arriving until late Wednesday night after dealing with a personal matter at home, Phil Mickelson started sluggishly Thursday at the BMW Championship but managed to grind out a 1-under 70 with a solid final nine holes.
It’s hard for Tiger Woods to say of his first round, “I didn’t get anything out of it.” After all, Woods was tied for third when he walked off with a 66. But he certainly wasted shots in finishing three back of the lead.
Tiger Woods plays in Wednesday's pro-am ahead of the BMW Championship, his only practice round at Conway Farms before his 11:53 p.m. EDT tee time on Thursday.

Pardon Hal Sutton if he yells “hip hip hooray” when he returns to competition next year. That’s because he figures he’ll be the only Champions Tour member playing with two artificial hips.
In this week's addition of "Hate To Be Rude," Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples selections Jordan Spieth and Webb Simpson as captain picks. Couples said 'This is Jordan Spieth's time.'

U.S. Presidents Cup captain Fred Couples would be wise to select hot hand Jordan Spieth with one of his two wild-card picks Wednesday.

Long irons and lag putts. That has characterized Tiger Woods’ conservative 54 British Open holes, though he did finally hit a driver. Expect more of the same safety-first game plan Sunday.

As out of sorts as he initially seemed, Tiger Woods would not only survive but thrive on the sun-baked confines of Muirfield in the first round of the Open Championship.
Adam Scott knows that his Wednesday press conference could have had a much different feel if he hadn't won the Masters in April. But Scott is a different man than the one that blew a four-shot lead at the 2012 Open Championship: He's focused.

While Tiger Woods says his left elbow is healthy, playing only nine-hole practice rounds might indicate that the injury is still the back of his mind. But on a course that likely won't need driver, Woods is still a favorite due to his superior long-iron skills.
Jeff Rude is a betting man, and believes in omens -- especially when it comes to his history with the Open Championship. So, you are in luck Rickie Fowler, Bubba Watson and Marc Leishman.
