Sniff’s Weekly Roundup

I’ve collected the top news and trending topics in the golf world so you can catch up on what you need to know! I’ve included some of the top stories as well as some of the most interesting stories and links from all around the internet! Enjoy! -Sniff

Here’s What’s Happened:

1. Justin Rose wins The Zurich Classic with birdies on the final two holes. His win Sunday was his 7th PGA Tour win. Rose has now won at least once in six straight seasons. Battling with rain delays and a soggy course, Rose finished with an impressive six birdies and did not have a bogey after the sixth hole of round one. Rose headed into Sunday tied for first with Jason Day and was able to hold off Cameron Triangle by a stroke on the final hole. Rose started 2015 looking a little rusty with three missed cuts and his best finish at 37th.

Very PROUD @zurichna Champion!! #ZurichClassic 🏆🏆🏆#teamRose

2. Tiger Woods announces that he will play at The Players Championship in two weeks. Woods confirmed via his Twitter account that he will be back in action in May. Tiger has won The Players Championship two times, once in 2001 and once just a few years ago in 2013. The tournament begins May 5 from Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

3. Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic ends in a playoff. New Zealander Lydia Ko celebrated her 18th birthday on Friday and put the icing on the birthday cake with a win on Sunday. This was Ko’s second straight year winning the Swinging Skirts Classic, this year beating Morgan Pressel on the second playoff hole. Ko entered the tournament ranked No. 1 in the world and now leads the tour’s money list after pocketing nearly $400,000 this weekend.

4. The WGC-Cadillac Match Play will test new format this year. Instead of the single elimination format of yesteryear, this year each player is guaranteed at least three rounds of golf and will compete in World Cup style play. Tournament officials boast a large turnout of big name golfers including Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy (Phil Mickelson pulled out at the last minute and Tiger won’t be there either) and the new format will allow fans an ample amount of time to watch their favorites. The tournament begins Wednesday from TPC Harding Park golf course in San Francisco.

Links I Love:

  • Junior golfer Brad Dalke did not just beat Rory McIlroy, he utterly destroyed him… in arm wrestling and then posted the video on his twitter account.

  • LOL at this hilarious photo of Tiger Woods and basketball player Yao Ming at the Nike Campus.

  • Winter lasts far too long for golfers in Iceland, who, in this video use different colored balls to differentiate from the white snow they play on.

    What to Watch For:

  • The World Golf Championship- Cadillac Match Play begins Wednesday from San Francisco, CA.
