  • Woods' caddie sticking by his man, thinks he can still win

    While Tiger Woods is on his couch, recovering from a pair of autumn back surgeries, his caddie, Joe LaCava, is playing a lot of golf.

    Since Woods' 2014-15 PGA Tour season ended at the Wyndham Championship in August, LaCava, as he told ESPN, has played some 50 rounds of golf. In other words, he's playing enough golf for himself and his boss. He misses being on the road, seeing friends and doing his job alongside the best player of this generation.

    But, despite overtures from other players, LaCava is sticking by his man.

    "A couple of guys approached me, I don't want to name any names, but I [politely] said no,'' LaCava said of those part-time or temporary offers. "My plan is to wait for Tiger to get back. I've told them I just want to work for Tiger and nobody else at this point. They were all nice about it. They didn't know what my situation was. I've elected to wait things out with Tiger and that is my plan going forward.''

    The PGA Tour is changing up the schedule of its Latin America-based developmental tour in response to the spreading Zika virus.

    PGA Tour Latinoamerica officials notified players last Friday that the Guatemala Open and Honduras Open have been moved deeper into the spring. According to Golf Channel, the Guatemala Stella Artois Open has been moved from March 10-13 to April 28-May 1, while the Honduras Open will now be played May 5-8, up from March 3-6. 

    The next PGA Tour Latinoamerica events are the 69 Avianca Colombia Open, to be played Feb. 25-28, and Panama Classic from March 17-20.

    The Tour season opened in Latin America, with back-to-back events in Panama, then Colombia. The PGA Tour couldn't alter the schedule, released just weeks before the season began, in time to move the event.

    The PGA Tour will continue to monitor the situation, with the Puerto Rico Open played in March and the playing another Latin America swing in Brazil, Colombia and Mexico from the last week of March to the tail end of April.
