How pro made a birdie putt — and received a one-stroke penalty

Seonghyeon Kim hit his 3-foot, 4-inch putt, it 360’d around the hole and missed, and a fan shouted, “Did you see that?”. And then it really got interesting. In one of the more bizarre sequences you’ll see over a shot that went barely over a yard, Kim’s ball would also eventually drop. And it would activate not one, but two rules of golf.

2021 CJ Cup at Summit Club purse: Payout info, winner’s share

Just under a million bucks ($947,309). And just over it ($1,089,904). While certainly not chump change, these figures maybe best sum up Rickie Fowler’s recent struggles. The former is the money total he made during the 2020 PGA Tour season; the latter the amount he collected last season. Both of...

2021 CJ Cup at Summit grades: Rory McIlroy wins for historic 20th time on PGA Tour

In his pre-tournament press conference on Wednesday at The Summit Club in Las Vegas, Rory McIlroy was reminded that he was one win away from 20 PGA Tour victories, but two years from the lifetime membership that number affords you after at least 15 years of service on Tour.

Seonghyeon Kim penalized after waiting too long for putt to drop in the hole at The CJ Cup

Seonghyeon Kim was a feel-good story this week at The CJ Cup at the Summit Club in Las Vegas, turning in a great performance in a rare opportunity to compete on the PGA Tour. On his final hole of the week, the par-5 18th at Summit Club, Kim had a 3-and-a-half-foot birdie putt to round out his week. The putt went all the way around the hole and didn't drop, stopping on the lip in a tantalizing finish.

Rory McIlroy takes CJ Cup for 20th career Tour victory

On Wednesday last week, a reporter reminded Rory McIlroy of an unfortunate fact. “It seems astonishing to us that you’re [ranked] No. 14,” the reporter said, which was the truth. McIlroy had spent the last four months outside the top 10 in the world, a stretch we hadn’t seen from him since his rookie season on Tour. Just five days after that reminder, it is no longer an issue, for McIlroy nor the reporter.

Golf Twitter was not happy with the delayed final-round TV coverage at the CJ Cup

The PGA Tour doesn’t get much love on television during the fall. It’s understandable—fall tournaments typically don’t draw the best fields, and the vast majority of eyeballs are diverted to the NFL, college football, the baseball playoffs … you get the picture. TV coverage then is left to Golf Channel for all four rounds and shown in limited time windows.
