Thomas still sees room for improvement

Justin Thomas has ample reason to see the glass as more than half-filled, except that he plays golf for a living. The glass is never full enough to satisfy an elite golfer.

Consider his year going into the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

He won the Sentry Tournament of Champions and he added a second World Golf Championship title at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. That's four consecutive years of winning multiple PGA Tour events, the longest such streak since Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson from just over a decade ago.

PGA Tour reviewed by every club in bag

Even in a year cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, there was no shortage of memorable shots that helped shaped a year like no other on the PGA Tour.

A big drive gave Collin Morikawa his first major. A big putt gave Viktor Hovland his first win. And a big iron - in Bryson DeChambeau's case, a really big iron - allowed players to consider an unconventional approach to the game. Read More...

Tournament organizers said on Thursday that seven members of Europe's last Ryder Cup team will play the Saudi International on Feb. 4-7, the same week as the Phoenix Open on the PGA Tour. Read More...

LPGA rookie Moore overcame bullying

BELLEAIR, Fla. (AP) Haley Moore will never forget the shot. It was in April 2019 when she stood on the 16th tee at Augusta National, home of the Masters, 156 yards from the flag with a short iron in her hands and watched the ball take flight.

It landed a few yards to the left of the hole on the sharply sloped green and gravity did the rest, the ball eventually rolling to a stop close enough for a tap-in birdie. Moore smiled on her entire walk to the green, the fans who lined all sides of the hole roaring in delight and appreciation. Read More...

PGA trend of ending droughts continues

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. (AP) Robert Streb was too young at age 33 to have look back at his only PGA Tour victory six years ago instead of looking ahead to what might be his next one.

That wasn't the case for Stewart Cink. He was three years away from joining the 50-and-older set on the PGA Tour Champions, and 11 years removed from his last victory in 2009 at Turnberry in the British Open. Read More...
