The PGA Tour’s finest found themselves in unfamiliar territory yesterday, when the president of the United States welcomed them into The White House.
President Obama honoured the team of American golfers, who last year won their fifth straight Presidents Cup, a victory that was clinched by Tiger Woods.
Of course this week will mark Wood’s first PGA tour start in three months, and the pairings for the Quickens World National have been announced. Woods will be teeing it up with Jason Day and Jordan Spieth, and the last time Spieth played with Woods, he shot a 63 to Tiger's 71 in the second round of the Farmers Insurance Open.
Another group of note is a collaboration of former US Open Champions; Geoff Ogilvy, Angel Cabrera and Retief Goosen – they will play together in the first two rounds at Congressional.
Over to the LPGA tour now, and last week’s US Open winner Michelle Wie has been enjoying a media whirlwind, two day tour in New York City after taming Pinehurst No. 2. She even taught some news anchors her unique ‘table-top’ putting stance.
