Fore! In Iran, golf remains a game of the elite

Local golfers compete during Iran's National Golf Tournament, at Engelhab sports club in TehranThe bumpy fairways and patchy putting surfaces -- more burnt-out browns than grassy greens -- are not much to look at. In Iran however, this is golf at its finest. In the same way that the streets of Tehran got new names when the Islamic republic dramatically came into being in 1979, so did the Engelhab ("Revolution" in Farsi) Club. Iran's only recognised golf course has had a fairly rough time since.

McIlroy struggles in wind, unheralded Herman leads Honda Classic

Rory McIlroy plays his tee shot on the 14th hole during the first round of the Honda Classic on February 26, 2015 in Palm Beach GardensWorld number one Rory McIlroy battled to a three-over-par 73 at a windswept Honda Classic in his first US PGA Tour start of 2015. Given Thursday's daunting conditions, which saw only 19 players break par, the Northern Irishman wasn't too disappointed with an effort that left him eight shots off the pace set by Web.com Tour graduate Jim Herman.


Herman says Trump gave him timely push to make the tour

By Simon Evans PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (Reuters) - Honda Classic first round leader Jim Herman's dream of making the PGA Tour looked to be fading when he was working as an assistant professional at the Trump National course in New Jersey. Trying and failing to qualify for the highly competitive U.S. circuit at the second stage of qualifying school in Tampa proved to be demoralizing for the Cincinnati-born Herman, who eventually threw in the towel. "You play the (third tier) Golden Bear tour, go to Q‑School, it was just the same cycle every year," Herman, 37, said after shooting a five-under-par 65 at PGA National on Thursday. I played in Tampa, seems like every year and driving back to East Coast with, 'What am I going to do now?' "I got in the golf business, started working at the PGA Village, got a phone call and started working up at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey." It was there, in 2006, that the owner of the course, American celebrity entrepreneur Donald Trump, spurred Herman to try again at a professional career. McIlroy struggles in wind at Honda but lives to fight on

PGA: The Honda Classic-First RoundBy Simon Evans PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (Reuters) - Rory McIlroy has had his share of ups and downs at the Honda Classic and Thursday's opening round, where he shot a three-over-par 73, was no different. The Northern Irishman won at PGA National in 2012 with a victory that sent him to the world number one spot for the first time in his career and signaled his arrival as one of the sport's true stars. McIlroy walked off the course just a year later during his first round, talking about being in a "bad place" but later saying a painful toothache had been behind his withdrawal. Twelve months ago, he played some outstanding golf but surrendered a three-stroke lead with an error-strewn 74 in the final round before losing out to American Russell Henley in a four-way playoff.


American Herman moves one ahead at Honda Classic

PGA: RBC Canadian Open-Second RoundBy Simon Evans PALM BEACH GARDENS, Florida (Reuters) - American journeyman Jim Herman was the unlikely first round leader at the Honda Classic after shooting a five-under-par 65 as world number one Rory McIlroy struggled at blustery PGA National on Thursday. Northern Irishman McIlroy, looking to make a winning start to his build-up to the April 9-12 Masters, recovered from an erratic first 14 holes as he finished birdie-birdie for a three-over 73. Herman, 37, has never won on the PGA Tour and was not even sure of entry into the tournament on Monday but he handled the tough conditions superbly as he stayed bogey-free while recording five birdies on the Champion Course.
