The PGA Tour playoffs begin this week on CBS and last season's FedEx cup champion, Rory McIlroy, is back to defend his crown. He is one of the sport's biggest stars – on and off the golf course. "CBS This Morning" co-host Norah O'Donnell spoke to him at Yankee Stadium about charity, golfing with the president and his good friend, Tiger Woods. Next month marks McIlroy's 10th year as a professional golfer. He also just got married. "Rory McIlroy is good. Jeez, if you had to ask me 10 years ago when I was just on the verge of turning professional, 'What would you like the next 10 years to look like?' I would never have envisioned what I've been able to do on the golf course or off it for that matter,"
With the world of modern equipment at his disposal, Henrik Stenson pulled the cover off his 8-year-old 3-wood with no embarrassment or hesitation. “I think quite a few [players] would like to hit like I end up,” he told The Post on Tuesday at Glen Oaks Club, where The Northern Trust will start Thursday and kick off the first of the four-tournament FedExCup playoffs. Stenson’s personal whuppin’ stick has become a thing of legend, hitting it so often and with such proficiency that he didn’t even pack a driver in his bag last week while winning the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina to vault him from No. 75 to No. 23 in the playoff rankings. The 41-year-old Swede credits a lot of that to his most reliable weapon, a 2009 Callaway Diablo Octane.
In the year 2017, people will do just about anything for the sake of a viral video. That inevitably leads to something going wrong, which practically ensures the video will go viral ... for all the wrong reasons. Case in point, this video posted to the Golf Gods Instagram account which features a guy attempting a trick shot in which the golf ball is on fire. If for some reason you're still reading these words and didn't just skip down below and hit the play button already, it does not turn out well for our brave trick-shot artist. Possibly the only thing going for this guy? Well, he did do the trick shot near a body of water so he could immediately out the flames that had engulfed his body. Credit
