Ian Poulter lost his status on Friday at the Valero Texas Open. Ian Poulter formally lost his fully-exempt PGA Tour status on Friday when he missed the cut at the Valero Texas Open, leaving him short of fulfilling the requirements of a major medical extension on which his card hinged.

It wasn't the ACC Championships that the Virginia Cavaliers wanted coming into the week, but the Hoos Jimmy Stanger outlasted all the other participants to take the ACC mens golf individual championship.

Saturdays final round didn't start out how Stanger would have hoped.
Last time we saw Sergio Garcia, he was winning his long-awaited first major at the 2017 Masters. He was super happy about it. He continued being happy about it throughout his barnstorming tour through New York City. And what’s he doing now? Well, after scoring an invitation to Rory McIlroy’s wedding on Saturday, he spent Sunday attending Real Madrid’s match against Barcelona (he’s a lifelong Madrid fan), IN HIS GREEN JACKET. He even got to get the match underway. So, basically: Yea, life is pretty good for Sergio Garcia right now.
