  • Ridley begins his reign as Augusta National chairman

    Fred Ridley recalls soaking up the ambience of Augusta National a week before his debut in the 1976 Masters as the U.S. Amateur champion. He was alone under the massive oak tree next to the clubhouse when he turned around and realized he had company. Clifford Roberts, co-founder of the club and the first chairman of the Masters, was standing behind him. "I kind of jumped and thought, 'Oh God, what have I done?'" Ridley said. "We had a nice conversation. The interesting thing was, we were leaving and he says, 'Now young man, you're going to be playing in the Par 3 next Wednesday.

  • Perez carries quick start to CIMB Classic victory

    Associated Press KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -- American Pat Perez won the PGA Tour's CIMB Classic, claiming a 4-shot victory over compatriot Keegan Bradley on Sunday at TPC Kuala Lumpur. Perez, 41, sealed his first title in almost a year despite carding a modest 3-under 69 in the final round, courtesy of a strong start with three birdies in the first four holes. He managed only to make par on the back nine but did enough to finish the tournament with a 24-under 264 to take home $1.26 million and 500 FedEx Cup points. Perez's feat comes after a long recovery from a shoulder injury last year that threatened to derail his career. The bulky golfer admitted he never expected to reign supreme in the sweltering
