The Clown's Mouth: 'Vintage' Tiger Woods, Middle East golf

Rounding up a few of the week's stories that didn't quite merit the full-post treatment.

• Check out the LPGA's new ad campaign, featuring Natalie Gulbis signing in strange areas ...

• At the ACE Group Classic in Naples, Fla., John Cook reported that Tiger Woods' swing has finally "clicked," and that he should be back to his winning ways soon. We shall see, won't we? [Press Tent]

• In Thailand, Michelle Wie and Yani Tseng sit just one stroke behind In-Kyung Kim, who shot a record-tying 63 on Thursday but, unfortunately, was 10 strokes worse on Friday. [Golfweek]

• Great video here from Golf Digest's Dom Furore on golf in the Middle East. Well worth a watch for, as GD puts it, a "familiar game in an unfamiliar land." [Golf Digest]

• Donald Trump has offered his Trump National Club in Bedminster, N.J., as a potential U.S. Open backup site. (Also, be sure to listen to our interview with Trump right here on his new season of "Donald J. Trump's Fabulous World of Golf.") [Golfweek]
