Spieth, Palmer visit Saints Draft 'war room'

AVONDALE, La. – Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer can’t get enough of this team concept. First, they shot a 6-under 66 in alternate shot to share the lead at the Zurich Classic.

Ko: Number of caddie firings bit misleading

IRVING, Texas – Rolex world No. 1 Lydia Ko says her caddie count may seem high for a 20-year-old pro, but it’s misleading. Ko said she didn’t really know what she was looking for her rookie year, when she went through a bunch of caddies before settling on Jason Hamilton as her first real full-time caddie late in the season. “Obviously, the number of caddies I’ve had is not a small number,” Ko said. “My...

Tournament officials will dole out a full purse and FedEx Cup allotment for both participants. That could be significant for a player like Chase, who has status... Read more
