KingCo 2A/3A dominated two state girls golf tournaments Wednesday.

Golf-'Hogan's Alley' right up Simpson's alley
Simpson is not a long hitter, but relies more on accuracy to plot his away around. It is hardly a co-incidence that his Players victory at TPC Sawgrass in Florida a fortnight ago was achieved on a course where long-hitters are effectively straight-jacketed, because many holes offered little incentive to hit driver off the tee. 'Hogan's Alley', as the course is known in deference to five-times champion Ben Hogan, is also right up Simpson's alley.

Broncos GM John Elway has a shot at golfing in the U.S. Senior Open
Denver Broncos general manager John Elway will compete in a qualifying golf tournament on May 28 with a shot at playing in the U.S. Senior Open. The former Super Bowl-winning quarterback will aim to finish as one of the top two competitors at The Broadmoor East Course in Colorado Springs, according to The Denver Post. Should he win or finish as the tournament's runner-up, he'd have a spot in the U.S. Senior Open come June 28. Later next week, Elway will also compete in the Colorado Senior Open on May 30-31 — where he finished second in both 2014 and 2016. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is another former quarterback with a strong golf game. Earlier this year, he received a sponsor's

Did the best women’s college golfer of all time just wrap up her career?
What was the biggest accomplishment during Leona Maguire’s college golf career at Duke? The 23-year-old from Northern Ireland had showed such talent at such an early age—playing on the Great Britain & Ireland Curtis Cup team at 15, winning college player of the year honors as a freshman—that most assumed her stay in Durham, N.C. would be sweet but short. While Maguire proudly earned her degree, as did her twin sister Lisa, earlier this month, she saw her dream of winning an NCAA team title slip away on Tuesday at Karsten Creek Golf Club, when the Blue Devils fell to USC in the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship.

How Tiger Woods Overcame the Chipping Yips
Starting in late 2014 and early 2015, Tiger Woods was exhibiting short game behavior that was very unlike the former No. 1 player in the world: He had the yips. “When Tiger got in trouble with his chipping, he tended to let the handle move too wide in the backswing.

Arizona outlasts Alabama for NCAA women's golf title
Haley Moore beat Lakareber Abe with a birdie on the first extra hole Wednesday to give Arizona a 3-2 victory over Alabama in the NCAA women's golf championship. Three days after the Wildcats were one putt away from being eliminated, Moore made a 4-foot putt on the par-5 18th to finally finish off Abe in the last match at Karsten Creek. Abe putted first and missed from about the same distance, with her ball going by on the left. "It means so much. It is actually like a dream," Moore said. "I never would have thought that it would be like this. I'm just so happy right now and for my team, and I did this for them." Abe birdied the 18th in regulation to force overtime. "I kind of screwed up on 17

Column: US Open has a new way of presenting old courses
If the U.S. Open was suffering from an identity crisis, then a return to Shinnecock Hills should cure that. Jack Nicklaus was the strongest voice of concern a year ago, and it was easy to see why. The U.S. Open went to two modern courses in three years, Chambers Bay in 2015 and Erin Hills in 2017.

'Tiger Woods PGA Tour' video game is no more
There was a time that Tiger Woods played video golf in Times Square. If you’re a fan of golf video games, it’s been a pretty fallow few years, ever since EA Sports stopped making its “PGA Tour” franchise — most famously branded with Tiger Woods’ name, but also with Rory McIlroy’s here and there. The Tour and HB Studios have announced that “The Golf Club” video game will include a special PGA Tour mode.

Ogilvy moving his family back to Australia next year
"All of the tours around the world have bought into the official world golf ranking rankings," said Jeff Hall, the USGA's managing director of rules and open championships. "And this provides just the right place for us to be with exemptions. We don't have to get into the weighting of one tour over another, this championship versus that event, a week-to-week event. We focus on the official world golf rankings and it seems to get us the right players for our championship." Justin Thomas won the Honda Classic on Feb. 25 at No. 4 in the world. No one from the top 10 in the world has won a PGA Tour event since then, a stretch of 12 tournaments. ... Guy Kinnings is leaving IMG after nearly 30 years
