    I've snapped a club over my knee, but the way she broke hers could have really injured somebody. That wasn't very canadian of her.

    I've never actually broken a club...thrown one and I was pretty embarrassed about it afterwards. I really had no reason...my game didn't warrant it...but it felt good for about 3 secs until I had to make that walk of shame to retrieve it.

    Her...she has plenty of game, but that was a bit wreckless for any pro. I'm sure she'll get something in the mail from the LPGAT headquarters in a few days.

    It has been a crazy week.
    Bud Cauley almost died.
    Details emerge about car accident that injured pro golfer during Memorial week

    A car in which PGA Tour golfer Bud Cauley was a passenger went airborne before striking a large tree and three smaller trees and stopping in a ditch Friday night, according to a police report released Tuesday.

    The driver of the car, David Crawford, 37, of Upper Arlington, Ohio, was given a field sobriety test and taken to a local hospital. The accident occurred at 11:04 p.m. Friday night not far from Muirfield Village Golf Club after Cauley had played in the second round of the Memorial and missed the cut.

    Charges are pending and the crash is still being investigated, according to Dublin, Ohio, police.

    Former Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman James Wisniewski was also a passenger in the car, a 2014 black BMW. Cauley, Wisniewski and a third passenger were taken to a Columbus hospital for injuries sustained in the accident.

    Cauley wrote Monday that he is "thankful to be alive" after suffering five broken right ribs, a collapsed right lung and a fractured lower left leg. He had surgery Sunday. He said there is no timetable for his return to the PGA Tour.

    The 28-year-old Cauley, who played at the University of Alabama, missed the cut at the Memorial after shooting 77-76. Ranked No. 136 in the world, Cauley has never won a PGA Tour event but has finished in the top 10 19 times.

    He withdrew from a U.S. Open sectional qualifier Monday in Memphis.

    Yeah...I heard about the Cauley accident during the Memorial actually.

    That makes two PGAT players that are lucky to be alive...Bill Haas was the other one.

    For some reason I thought McDowell played in the French Open in Paris, but maybe his clubs had been located for that one.

    Haas and Cauley within months of each other. This is almost becoming a trend. Needs to stop before the next person isn’t as lucky.

    Agreed...before we have another Danny Heatley situation to chat about.

    IDK about Cauley, but from my understanding Haas was a passenger.

    I believe both cases are very similar.
    They need to be more careful about who they are associating with. Especially those that think they are experienced formula one drivers

    PGAT...congrats to Kevin Na!

    Not only did this guy overcome the swing yips...he now has notched two win on tour with his -6, 64 on Sunday. Neither of the 54 hole leaders wanted this tournament so Na took it.

    LPGAT...the record breaking round that no one saw.

    Sei Young Kim...the young S. Korean shot -31 at the Thornberry Creek Classic to shatter the LPGA record (-27) that she shared with Annika Sorenstam....it was such a blow out that I didn't bother to watch much but I think she had a dbl bogey for the week...her only dropped shots.

    A Woods-Mickelson match is mere manufactured hype - Golf Digest

    I'm not a big Feinstein fan at all so maybe that slants my view here but WTF. Why the big beef?

    We know this is exhibition golf...imo the same as the Shell golf matches...Tiger vs Phil...yeah I'll watch it even though neither is playing great golf, but still two of the biggest draws in the game.

    Agreed...I'm sure they knew who they were getting in the car with and probably didn't expect such an outcome, but money, fast car, and alcohol is a recipe for disaster.
