Laura Davies is 18 holes away from her second senior major win of the year.

The England native shot 2-under 70 Tuesday in Round 2 of the Senior LPGA Championship to take a two-shot lead over Brandie Burton ahead of Wednesday’s third and final round at the Pete Dye Course in French Lick, Ind.

Davies won four majors during her LPGA career and also won the inaugural U.S. Senior Women’s Open by 10 shots in July at Chicago Golf Club.

She shot 4-under 68 in Monday’s opening round but didn’t get the start she was looking for in Round 2. Davies made bogey at the par-4 first and par-3 fourth hole to start the day 2 over, but she quickly bounced back with a birdie at five.

Davies was bogey-free over her final 14 holes and made four birdies, getting to 6 under on the week.

Burton began the day six shots off the lead but worked her way into contention Tuesday with the low round of the tournament thus far, a 6-under 66 to get into the final pairing Wednesday. Her bogey-free round included two birdies on the front nine and four on the back.

Silvia Cavalleri and Jane Crafter are T-3 and three shots off the lead at 3 under for the week. Helen Alfredsson, Liselotte Neumann and Michele Redman are T-5 at 2 under.

Davies, Burton and Cavalleri tee off for Wednesday’s third and final round at 12:43 p.m. ET.

Tiger Woods talks Ryder Cup fatigue, future tournament schedule http://tallahassee.sportstonews.com/2018/10/16/tiger-woods-talks-ryder-cup-fatigue-future-tournament-schedule/ http://tallahassee.sportstonews.com/2018/10/16/tiger-woods-talks-ryder-cup-fatigue-future-tournament-schedule/#respond Tue, 16 Oct 2018 23:05:27 +0000 http://tallahassee.sportstonews.com/2018/10/16/tiger-woods-talks-ryder-cup-fatigue-future-tournament-schedule/ Tiger Woods says a cumulative effect from the entire season caught up to him in Paris, but he's ready to train right for 2019 and beyond.

The post Tiger Woods talks Ryder Cup fatigue, future tournament schedule appeared first on Tallahassee Democrat.

Tiger Woods was at Pebble Beach Tuesday for the annual Tiger Woods Invitational.

The three-day event includes three rounds of golf at Pebble Beach, Monterey Peninsula Country Club and Spyglass Hill, along with some access to the man himself for Q&A sessions on the driving range, auctions, musical guests, dinners, the whole nine. It doesn’t look like a bad time if one has the means.

Woods held one of those range sessions Tuesday and took questions from attendees, who shouted them out while sitting around watching him hit up close. His TGR Live Events Instagram account posted a portion of it, with Woods talking about disappointment from the Ryder Cup, next year’s schedule, his potential to be a playing captain at next year’s Presidents Cup and more.

He also talked about winning last month’s Tour Championship now that he’s had a few weeks to reflect on the craziness at East Lake.

“It’s still sinking in, because 80 is a big number,” Woods said. “I’ve won 80 times out there. That’s pretty cool. It hasn’t been easy. What validates it for me is the fact that I got a chance to go against Rory (McIlroy) head to head in the final group, and also (Justin Rose), who was tied with Rory, a group ahead. He’d just become the No. 1 player in the world. In order to get my first win in five years I had to beat those two guys. That makes it feel even more special.”

It took a lot out of Woods and seemed to catch up to him in France, where he went 0-4 in the U.S. Ryder Cup loss in the days following the victory. He was asked Monday if he’d have done anything differently had he been captain of that team.

“I’d like to change that L to a W,” Woods said. “That doesn’t feel very good, losing.”

Woods went on to say that fatigue was a big factor that week at Le Golf National.

“It was just a cumulative effect of the entire season,” Woods said. “I was tired because I hadn’t trained for it. I hadn’t trained this entire comeback to play this much golf and on top of that deal with the heat and the fatigue and the loss of weight.”

That’s what makes this upcoming season so interesting. Woods put in all the groundwork and laid a foundation for this career resurgence, and he’s said next year is going to be a lot easier on him as a result. Now he knows roughly how much golf he’ll play next year, he knows his swing and he knows how he needs to train to prepare for it.

As for the actual schedule, Woods has his Thanksgiving weekend match with Phil Mickelson in Las Vegas next month and the Hero World Challenge in December. Now he’s just starting to piece the rest of it together.

“I’m still figuring that out,” Woods said. “Flying out here yesterday trying to look at the schedule, it’s the first time I’ve taken a look at it. I’ve been so focused on getting through the playoffs and the Ryder Cup that I just took a look at the schedule and saw how packed it is.”

He knows he’ll be in Australia for the President’s Cup at the end of it, where he’s serving as U.S. team captain and most likely playing as well.

“God I hope so,” said Woods, who noted that he’s ninth in the points standings right now. “I’d be asking for a captain’s pick. …. I really hope to be a playing captain, I really do.”

He then launched into a story about Hale Irwin’s strategy when he was a playing captain for the 1994 President’s Cup, so clearly he’s given this a lot of thought. But Woods didn’t have to think long at all when he was asked which major he’s most looking forward to next year.

“Oh, that first one,” Woods said.

Sounds like Woods is counting down the days until the Masters like the rest of us.

The PGA Tour continues its 2018 Asian Swing this week with the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges on Jeju Island in Korea. The golf tournament begins Wednesday night in the United States and Thursday morning local time.

This will be Koepka’s first event on the PGA Tour 2018-19 schedule.

Marc Leishman, the CIMB Classic winner last week, will be paired with Si Woo Kim and Ernie Els.  Leishman finished second here last year to Thomas in a playoff.

The time on Jeju Island is 12 hours ahead of New York.

Johnny Miller will be walking away from the golf telecasts on NBC and Golf Channel next year, ending his 30-year run with the networks at the Waste Management Open in Phoenix in February.

He will be replaced by Paul Azinger.

“When NBC Sports approached me 30 years ago about a move to TV, I never could have imagined how it would lead to so many lasting relationships and countless memories made alongside a team of talented friends, both in front of and behind the camera,” Miller said in the wake of a Golfweek report that  broke the news of his retirement. “I’m forever grateful to my family for their support during this fulfilling chapter of my life. As I say farewell to the 18th tower, I look forward to spending more time alongside my wife Linda, our children, and our 24 grandchildren. Soon it will officially be Miller time.”

Miller was named lead analyst of NBC Sports’ golf broadcast team in 1990.

The post Fantasy golf power rankings: 2018 CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges appeared first on Tallahassee Democrat.

]]>

The CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges debuted on the PGA Tour schedule last fall. Justin Thomas was the winner, shooting 9 under in windy conditions (though all of that came during a calm first round) and defeating Marc Leishman in a playoff.

Nine Bridges in Jeju Island, South Korea, is a par-72 layout that tips out at 7,184 yards. Wind should again be a factor this year, though likely not as brutal. Still, this won’t be the birdie-fest that we saw last week in Malaysia.

Some statistics to keep an eye on (remember, CIMB and CJ Cup do not use ShotLink): strokes gained approach the green, greens in regulation, strokes gained putting, three-putt avoidance, par-5 scoring and bogey avoidance. Also, course experience should be something to heavily consider this week.

Here are my top 20 fantasy golf options for the CJ Cup:

1. Justin Thomas: Defending champion shot 9-under 63 in opening round last year at CJ Cup. Also closed last week’s CIMB Classic with final-round 64 and T-5 finish. Ranks T-15 in par-5 scoring.

2. Jason Day: Posted T-11 finish last year in South Korea behind weekend rounds of 71-71. Makes season debut this week after not posting a top-10 since the WGC-Bridgestone. Tour’s leader in SGP last season.

3. Paul Casey: Was T-19 last year at CJ Cup. Has posted two straight finishes of T-13 or better worldwide. Ranks T-17 in GIR. Has three-putted just once this season.

4. Hideki Matsuyama: Making CJ Cup debut after closing last season with five straight top-15 finishes, including two T-4s.

5. Marc Leishman: Last year’s CJ Cup runner-up is coming off a win in Malaysia. Didn’t have a top-10 before that since Byron Nelson. Has three-putted just once this season. Ranks second in par-5 scoring and third in bogey avoidance.

6. Brooks Koepka: Coming off T-7 finish at Alfred Dunhill Links. Makes CJ Cup debut this week.

7. Emiliano Grillo: Opened new season with T-2 in Malaysia and was T-40 last year in South Korea. Ranked sixth in SGATG at Safeway.

8. Gary Woodland: Fell to T-5 finish last week in Malaysia, but has still cracked top 13 in each of last three Tour starts. Was T-40 last year in South Korea. Ranks third in bogey avoidance, T-8 in par-5 scoring and T-17 in GIR. Has three-putted just once this season.

9. Louis Oosthuizen: Got back on track with T-5 last week at CIMB. Makes CJ Cup debut this week. Ranks T-15 in par-5 scoring, third in bogey avoidance and T-7 in GIR. Has three-putted just once this season.

10. Kevin Na: Solid but not spectacular recently with five top-25s in last six Tour starts. Makes CJ Cup debut this week. Leads Tour in bogey avoidance and ranks second in GIR. Has three-putted just once this season.

11. Charles Howell III: Was T-19 last year in South Korea. His T-5 at CIMB was his first top-10 since Nelson. Leads Tour in GIR, and ranks third in bogey avoidance and T-15 in par-5 scoring. Has three-putted just once this season.

12. Ben An: Was T-11 last year in South Korea, and is coming off finishes of T-8 and T-13.

13. Tyrrell Hatton: Making CJ Cup after nearly winning the Dunhill Links, where he ended up T-2.

14. Ryan Moore: CJ Cup first-timer followed T-2 finish at Safeway with T-66 at CIMB. Ranked 25th in SGATG at Safeway and has shown an improved putting stroke this fall. Has three-putted just once this season.

15. J.B. Holmes: Was T-67 last year at CJ Cup, but he has gone ninth, T-13 to open the new season. Has three-putted just twice this season.

16. Abraham Ancer: T-5 finish at CIMB was his third top-7 in last six worldwide starts. Has three-putted just once this season.

17. Sungjae Im: South Korean rookie took week off after T-4 finish at Safeway. Strong putter who was T-6 in SGP at Safeway. Has three-putted just once this season.

18. Rafa Cabrera Bello: T-11 last year in South Korea, but was T-50 last week in Malaysia. Ranks T-9 on Tour in GIR.

19. Kyle Stanley: Was T-19 last year in South Korea. Has top-15s in three of last four Tour starts. Ranks eighth in par-5 scoring.

T-20. Brandt Snedeker: Busy season so far with T-2 at Safeway and T-66 at CIMB. Makes CJ Cup debut this week, so his putting prowess might not benefit him as much. Has three-putted just once this season.

T-20. Cameron Smith: Finished third last year in South Korea, but he hasn’t done much since posting back-to-back top-3s in playoffs.
