Photos from the Valspar Championship

Published

on

GolfWRX is live from the PGA Tour’s Valspar Championship, previously known as the Tampa Bay Championship.

The title sponsor has changed, but the event is still held at Innisbrook Resort’s Copperhead Course in Palm Harbor, Fla. Copperhead is best known for its three-hole finishing stretch called “The Snake Pit,” which bring hazards and high scores into play.

Last year’s champion Kevin Streelman played The Snake Pit at 1-over for the week. He navigated holes Nos. 1 through 15 at 11-under for a 10-under total that gave him a two-shot cushion over runner-up Boo Weekley.

While Streelman and Weekley will return to Innisbrook, many of the world’s top-ranked golfers are taking time off this week as they prepare for The Masters. There are four top-20 ranked players that are in the field, however, including Justin Rose (No. 7 in the Official World Golf Rankings), Matt Kuchar (11) Jordan Spieth (13) Jason Dufner (17) and Brandt Snedeker (19). Also teeing it up are Luke Donald, Harris English, Jim Furyk, Bill Haas, David Lynn and Gary Woodland.

    Where can normal people get lead like that?
    Everything I try and melt onto my club just bubbles and runs off.

    Are they even melting it?

      Melt? It’s just tape, it’s not supposed to be melted. Just stick it on.

        Look at image 3 though. There’s no way that’s just stuck on.

REPORT: Tiger Woods to play in the Genesis Open on Feb 15

Published

on

Last season, Tiger Woods withdrew from a press conference at the Genesis Open due to back spasms. This season, Woods will reportedly play in the 2018 Genesis Open at Riviera C.C. in Pacific Palisades, California from February 15-18.

By withdrawing from the 2017 Genesis Open — an event which his Tiger Woods Foundation hosts — Woods ensured that a promising comeback was not to be. At the start of 2017, Woods committed to play in the Farmers Insurance Open, the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, the Genesis Open and the Honda Classic… an aggressive schedule for Woods, who hadn’t played much competitive golf in the previous year due to back injuries and surgeries. Things didn’t go as planned, however, as Woods missed the cut at the Farmers, withdrew after an opening-round 77 in Dubai, and withdrew from the Genesis Open and the Honda.

Since then, Woods has had spinal fusion surgery, and he recently finished T9 at the 18-player 2017 Hero World Challenge. It was there he showed the golfing world — and probably himself, too — that he can still compete among the world’s best golfers when he’s healthy.

At the Hero World Challenge, Woods was consistently hitting 179 mph of ball speed off the tee with his driver, and despite some early concerns with the wedge, he showed prowess around and on the greens. He was yip-less, fast, healthy, and finished 8-under through four rounds. A Tiger Woods comeback seems more plausible now than it has in three years.

Woods will continue to test his game at the 2017 Genesis Open — a start that will come 26 years after competing as a 16-year-old amateur in the 1992 Nissan Open at Riviera. Much like 26 years ago, Woods comes to Riviera as a golfer who needs to prove himself… it’s just that this time around, he has 14 majors and 79 PGA Tour wins to his name.
