  • Former Tour player claims Woods suspended by Tour; agent, Tour deny claims

    Former PGA Tour player Dan Olsen made a serious accusation on Friday: that Tiger Woods had been suspended by the Tour for a month.

    Olsen, who was an exempt player for the 2004 PGA Tour season, made the claim Friday on radio station WVFN to host David DeMarco. The Michigan-based pro claimed his sources were "exempt Tour players," but that Woods was not suspended for taking testosterone.

    “I think when it’s all said and done, he’s going to surpass Lance Armstrong in infamy," Olsen said.

    Both Tiger Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, and the PGA Tour vehemently deny Olsen's claims.

    “These claims are absolutely, unequivocally and completely false," Steinberg said in a statement. "They are unsourced, unverified and completely ridiculous. The PGA Tour has confirmed that there is no truth to these claims.”

  • Stacy Lewis hanging on to 1-shot lead at Honda LPGA Thailand

    After her Friday 64 to take the lead at the Honda LPGA Thailand, Stacy Lewis talked about the need to not look back and keep moving forward at Siam Country Club.

    Lewis did not move forward on Saturday, shooting a 1-over 73 in Round 3 that left her with a one-shot lead heading into the final round. The 30-year-old is at 13-under 203 and just ahead of Amy Yang, who carded 71.

    "It was a bit all over the place today," Lewis said. "Hit some good shots, hit some shots too far."

    The world No. 3 struggled early in her third round, making three consecutive front-nine bogeys to lose the lead. It took an eagle at the drivable par-4 15th to regain the lead from Yang. A bogey at the par-5 last hole was a disappointing way to finish the round. However, Lewis said it's an all-too-common conclusion to her rounds at this venue.

    "This 18th hole just frustrates me,"  she said. "Over the years it's gotten my number more times than it's been good."

    Sandra Gal is another shot back in third, with Mirim Lee and Jenny Shin tied for fourth at 10 under par.
