The tournament they used to call the L.A. Open tees off today at Riviera Country Club. Rory McIlroy is in the field … so is Spieth and DJ.
World No. 1 Lydia Ko is 18, but she is, they say, an old soul. She’s in the field for the Women’s Australian Open this weekend.
Those two tournaments might on an ordinary day land above the fold in the world golf news, but they are
trumped outdone today by the announcement the eager Nation has been waiting for, somewhat breathlessly, if not at full pant. That is: The Bent Shaft Classic, the season opener for the Grey Goatee Golf Association (3GA) Tour, returns April 3 to Capitol City Golf Club. We can agree, I think, it’s the right and proper prelude to Masters Week.
