Traverse City West’s Anika Dy fought through strong winds Friday afternoon better than anyone else in round one of the Division 1 state finals. The junior and University of Michigan commit shot a 3-under-par 69 — the only player to break par at The Meadows at Grand Valley State University. Yet, she wasn’t all that happy and went to the range while other participants still had 2-3 holes to play. “I left a lot of scoring out on the course,” Dy said. “I’m not dwelling on the score but I know there were several shots that I could have taken care of better. “It’s definitely challenging and that’s the fun part,” she said of the course. “Lots of hazards that make for some strategic shots out here.

More controversy over the marking of golf balls in a major championship, another round of scores wiped out in a major, more furor in women’s golf … This time it all occurred on the Korean LPGA Tour, and it led to a head rules official’s resignation. The KLPGA decided to scrub first-round scores Thursday after a rules controversy broke out over the marking of balls at the KB Financial Star Championship at Black Stone Golf Club in Icheon, South Korea. It’s one of that tour’s five major championships. Hye Jin Choi and You-Na Park were each penalized two shots after the first round for picking up and marking their golf balls, believing they were on a green, when it was later determined they were

England's Paul Casey said Friday he would not rush into a decision on whether to make himself available for the European Ryder Cup team in Paris next year. World number 14 Casey is not a member of the European Tour but said he could afford to wait until next year to rejoin and still be eligible for the Ryder Cup in September 2018. Earlier this week captain Thomas Bjorn declared Casey would be "a fantastic asset" for the European team against the United States.

BROCKTON — As his son, a newly minted national amateur champion, stands on the doorsteps of golf’s great cathedrals, Vic Parziale chuckles as he remembers that afternoon a quarter-century ago at the Brockton Fairgrounds. A bucket of balls, an old club, and three generations of Parziales standing on an improvised practice tee. “The only thing I remember is that as he followed through, he hit my father in the chest,’’ Parziale recalled. “It wasn’t like the kid was going to be the next Arnold Palmer or anything. But he could make contact.’’ Yes, Matt Parziale could make contact. And, as a little boy, he paid attention. And he archived some fond memories of his own. Like many other little boys, he

A couple of firsts highlight this week’s edition, starting with news that Tiger Woods took his first few swings with a driver following back surgery in April, and a surreal cancellation of a round in Peru because of a census, of all things. Woods’ manager Mark Steinberg told that the 14-time major champion recently met with his doctor who performed his back surgery in April, and that he hasn’t experienced any pain in his most recent comeback. Not bad for a guy who just three weeks ago at the Presidents Cup said he was limited to hitting 60-yard wedge shots. The conversation now turns to his possible return, with some speculating he may be ready in time to play December’s Hero World Challenge, which Woods hosts and is played on a golf course in the Bahamas he’s comfortable on.

Oct. 20, 2017 - It says here that fall’s the best time of year and the weather is supposed to be fantastic this weekend, so if you’re looking to enjoy the outdoors, Georgia Tech is here to help and free golf is included. You can count on freshman Noah Norton getting into it. Saturday night’s homecoming game against Wake Forest will offer crisp air and a sublime Midtown skyline for viewing pleasure. If you’re a day timer, the Yellow Jackets are hosting a great golf tournament Friday morning-Sunday in Alpharetta, where Norton’s duty will be limited to swinging sticks. He’ll do no heavy lifting, although he and the Jackets already have done some; they’re ranked No. 4 in the nation with first-, second-
