Petrovic, Putnam share Canadian Open lead (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: July 25, 2014, 12:32 am]
Tim Petrovic and Michael Putnam shared the first-round lead in the Canadian Open on Thursday, shooting 6-under 64 in sunny, breezy afternoon conditions at rain-softened Royal Montreal. The 47-year-old Petrovic was the last player to get in the field, grabbing a spot when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew Tuesday. ''I didn't set my expectations high because I got in late, so this was kind of my practice round,'' Petrovic said. He won his lone PGA Tour title in New Orleans in 2005.
Stanley back in form to contend in Canada (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: July 25, 2014, 12:14 am]
(Reuters) - Kyle Stanley has endured a frustrating 2013-14 PGA Tour season with 11 missed cuts in 25 starts but hinted at better things to come as he surged into contention for the Canadian Open in Montreal on Thursday before being overtaken late in the day by Michael Putnam and Tim Petrovic. Though Stanley failed to maintain momentum on his homeward nine after racing to the turn in an electrifying five-under 30, he ended a glorious, sun-splashed day one stroke off the pace set by his compatriots Putnam and Petrovic. Putnam, a journeyman who has bounced between the PGA Tour and the lower-tier circuits over the past decade, got to six under with four birdies in his last four holes. Stanley, whose only PGA Tour victory came at the 2012 Phoenix Open, was thrilled to see significant improvement in his game around and on the greens after toiling for much of this season.
Trip Tips: Controversy is par for the course at Trump's Scots resort (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: July 24, 2014, 11:26 pm]
By Spencer Anderson BALMEDIE Scotland (Reuters) - Just about everyone, including people who don't care about golf, knows that American mogul Donald Trump, sometimes known as "The Donald" as if there were no other, owns a course in Scotland. Before visiting with a golfing buddy, I knew of the controversies - environmentalists had opposed it when Trump bought the land in 2006, some landowners refused to sell. More recently, Trump scrapped plans to invest more at his site near Aberdeen, because he opposed plans for a wind farm nearby. The driveway feels like an entrance to an American golf resort - long, single lane, empty fields, quiet, clear that you are headed somewhere secluded and nice.

Jack Nicklaus likes Rory McIlroy's swagger as much as his swing (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: July 24, 2014, 8:54 pm]
When Rory McIlroy captured his third major at the Open Championship last week, he earned a lot of comparisons with Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, both of whom also were piling up majors at the age of 25. So perhaps it's not surprising that Nicklaus sees a little bit of himself when he looks at McIlroy these days. "I certainly don't have any criticism of Rory by any means," Nicklaus said during a wide-ranging news conference on Thursday.

Stanley back in form to set pace in Canada (Reuters) [Yahoo! Sports: July 24, 2014, 8:32 pm]
(Reuters) - Kyle Stanley has endured a frustrating 2013-14 PGA Tour season with 11 missed cuts in 25 starts but hinted at better things to come as he surged into an early one-shot lead at the Canadian Open in Montreal on Thursday. The 26-year-old American, whose short game has especially let him down this year, produced sparkling form with his putter as he racked up six birdies and a bogey in the opening round to shoot a five-under-par 65 on Royal Montreal's Blue Course. Though Stanley failed to maintain momentum on his homeward nine after racing to the turn in an electrifying five-under 30, he finished a stroke in front of six players, including his compatriots Nick Watney, Justin Hicks and Troy Merritt. South Korea's Charlie Wi and Australians Robert Allenby and Greg Chalmers also opened with 66s while American Brandt Snedeker launched his title defense with a 69.

If you were the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team, would you pick Tiger Woods? Jack Nicklaus certainly would. During a wide-ranging press conference on July 24, the Golden Bear was asked flat-out if he could see Woods being on the U.S. team at Gleneagles in September. If Tiger wants to play, I would certainly choose him," Nicklaus said.
Dick's Sporting Goods lays off 478 PGA golf pros (The Associated Press) [Yahoo! Sports: July 24, 2014, 6:39 pm]
The Dick's Sporting Goods chain has laid off 478 Professional Golfers' Association teaching pros months after the company reported that sales of golf gear are dwindling. Based in the Pittsburgh suburb of Findlay Township, Dick's operates more than 500 stores nationwide, most under the Dick's name. Those stores sell golf equipment as do 79 stores the chain operates under the Golf Galaxy name. Dick's still employs PGA pros at its Golf Galaxy stores, but not at Dick's locations.

David Horsey birdied four of his final six holes Thursday for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke lead in the first round of the Russian Open. Former French Open tennis champion Yevgeny Kafelnikov, one of 10 Russians in the field, shot an 11-over 83 with one birdie, six bogeys and three double-bogeys. Horsey has four top-10 finishes this season, including a share of ninth in last month's Lyoness Open in Austria. ''However, that comes with the territory when you bring in changes, but they're starting to bed in and I'm starting to get more comfortable.'' Scott Jamieson and Peter Whiteford (both 66) were tied for second at the Tseleevo Golf and Polo Club.

five players watch rbc canadian open (PGA) [Yahoo! Sports: July 23, 2014, 10:31 pm]
Let's be honest and say that the RBC Canadian Open has a tough spot on the PGA Tour schedule -- immediately after the Open Championship and immediately before the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. But let's also say this: The players in the field this week really want to be there as time is rapidly running out to nail down spots in the FedExCup playoffs. The Canadian Open returns this year to Montreal, where the very first Canadian Open was staged in 1904. ...
