Rundown: Lefty Spieth, Golf Cart Crash, Slow Play, and More Stuff

A rundown of content from the world of golf for Thursday, February 1, 2018: Pro Golf Weekly’s look at the latest from the pro tours, social buzz, and golf stories that will be discussed and debated.


NEWS LINKS

1.) The first round of the 2018 Waste Management Phoenix Open tees off at 9:20 am (ET), with Colt Knost and Alex Cejka doing the honors.

2.) Chris Paisely leads after a weather-delayed day one in Malaysia at the Maybank Championship.

3.) Tiger Woods and Masters talk filled some dead air before the opening rounds of the two pro tours got underway.

4.) Justin Thomas defended (and applauded) the slow play of J.B. Holmes at the Farmers Insurance Open. “I honestly applaud him waiting and making sure he was ready because he was trying to win the tournament,” said Thomas.

5.) A man was dragged more than 30 feet under a golf cart on the driving range yesterday at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. He is reportedly in serious condition.


SOCIAL CONTENT

6.) The most creative sign of the day comes from this little entrepreneur during Wednesday’s practice round at the Waste Management Open.

7.) Who knew Jordan Spieth was a lefty? Decent catch, though (pass from Aaron Rodgers). Hey, he’s from Texas, after all.

8.) Wesley Bryan is playing Chrome Soft Taco Bell golf balls this week at the Waste Management Open.

EQUIPMENT PLUG

9.) The Titleist Tour Soft golf balls are now available. The new mid-tier ball is being targeted to compete head to head with the top-selling Callaway Chrome Soft, and not against its flagship Pro V1 brand. It’s reportedly designed with Titleist’s largest core ever, providing a softer feel with improved distance. Available in white and high optic yellow.
