Justin Rose leads halted Indonesian Masters; Brandt Snedeker withdraws
After careful consideration and an exhaustive review of 2017 we present The Rexys, a wildly incomplete and arbitrary line up following one of the most eventful years in golf.  There will be omissions – just keep your calls, concerns and even e-mails to yourself. We appreciate your patronage, but not your feedback. It’s Not You, It’s Me Award. You know the deal: You can’t be a part of two until you’re a better one; but on this front it’s really just a desire to find a better two. It was a tough year for caddies, and not just any caddies. In June, Phil Mickelson split with longtime bagman Jim “Bones” Mackay. Both player and caddie cited the need for “change,” but the move reverberated throughout

Tiger Woods doesn't horse around when it comes to H-O-R-S-E
Tiger Woods does not horse around when it comes to athletic competition. This is not limited to golf. Caddie Joe LaCava this week told the “Inside the Ropes” podcast on Sirius XM that he and Woods once engaged in a spirited game of H-O-R-S-E. Woods did his best to best his caddie, launching a fusillade of 3-pointers. But LaCava kept his range between 10-12 feet, edging Woods with a series of mid-range jumpers. LaCava ran his streak over Woods to nine straight games. “This is a true story,” LaCava told “Inside the Ropes.” “Nine games in a row — and he did not talk to me the rest of the day.” “I didn’t even get the old text, ‘Dinner is ready,’ because I stay across at the beach house. I didn’t

Will Zalatoris forgoes final semester at Wake Forest to turn pro
When Will Zalatoris was 12 years old, he qualified for the 2009 U.S. Junior Amateur. That year at Trump National in Bedminster, N.J., he played his first round of stroke play with a kid named Patrick Cantlay – and “I had no idea who he was,” Zalatoris said. Later on that week, another kid, this one named Jordan Spieth, hoisted the trophy, his first of two U.S. Junior titles. Zalatoris went on to play four more U.S. Juniors, and on his fifth try won, defeating Davis Riley in the final match at The Club at Carlton Woods in The Woodlands, Texas. Among those competing in the field that week: Marty Dou, a PGA Tour rookie this season; Austin Connelly, a European Tour member who contended at the 2017

VIDEO: John Daly's son drains putt to win 5-man playoff at junior event
When John Daly competes this week in the PNC Father/Son Challenge, he’ll do so coming off an extremely recent win. Sorry, we’re not talking about two-time major champion John Daly but rather his son. John Daly II is a fine golfer himself and showed it with a passion recently in a junior event. The 14-year-old fired rounds of 79 and 73 to make it to a five-way playoff Sunday at the IJGA Invitational, played at Harbour Town Golf Links in Hilton Head Island, S.C. And the junior Daly, known as “Little John,” closed out a win in the Boys division emphatically. He began the final round seven shots back but made all of it up with his closing 73. He then birdied the first extra hole to secure the title,
