Cody Blick woke up on one of the most important days of his career and realized his golf clubs were gone. What happened next was the stuff of movies.

The nightmares suffered at Q-School are too frightful for even the most sadistic of "American Horror Story" episodes. While some players are able to escape from such hell—including Cody Blick, who bounced back from having his clubs stolen to shoot a final-round 63—for others, they are victims of inexorable fates. Sullivan, a 35-year-old journeyman who missed 20 of 23 cuts on the Tour last season, looked to be in fine standing to retain Web status for 2019, in 23rd place heading into the final round of Q-School at Whirlwind G.C. in Chandler, Ariz. Unfortunately for Sullivan, on a day when the field went low, he hovered around par for 13 holes, and then had the bad fortune of finding the water on the 14th hole.

Officially, the duo of Lexi Thompson and Tony Finau finished seventh in the 12-team field at the QBE Shootout on Sunday. Unofficially, the pairing won the week at Tiburón Golf Club in Naples, Fla., at least judging by the buzz they created. Or should we say the buzz that Thompson, the lone female in the field, drew with her power game.

Caddie Damon Green is not be a name widely known by golf fans, but they certainly recognize Green's "bird dance," unleashed every time his player, Zach Johnson, would card a red number. Green told TCN that Johnson informed him of the change in the last few weeks. Johnson has also notched 10 PGA Tour victories and made nine appearances in the Ryder and Presidents Cup in that span.

Louis Oosthuizen was back in front at the South African Open on Saturday after a 4-under 67 gave him a three-shot lead and a chance at his first title at his home tournament. Oosthuizen went ahead of fellow major winner Charl Schwartzel again after surrendering the lead in round two, when he fell two shots behind. The 2010 British Open winner rebounded with a strong putting display to move to a 14-under 199 overall and open a handy advantage over a group of three players tied for second at the Firethorn Course at Randpark Golf Club.

Cody Blick had a story to tell after walking off the green of Q-School. When it comes to golf pros on the bubble of tour status, there is no tournament more important than Q-School. A chance to lock down a spot on the PGA’s developmental Tour, with an opportunity to secure a hallowed PGA Tour card from there, careers can be started or ended at the Tour Qualifying Tournament.

Tiger Woods was texting last week from Melbourne, Australia, with Davis Love III and Steve Stricker, discussing with the two former captains what Love likes to call “Team USA Golf.” Woods commented on all the moving parts and media requests in his role as leader of the 2019 U.S. Presidents Cup team – like flying to Australia immediately after the Hero World Challenge for a news conference and photo shoot. “I’m like, ‘Aren’t you used to that?’” joked Stricker, captain of the victorious 2017 U.S. team. The injection of Woods into the Presidents Cup next December has created an energy and global buzz to an overshadowed event that has been dominated since its inception by the United States.

Miura’s plan for expansion in the U.S. included creating more opportunities to get its forged irons in the hands of more golfers. To that end, the high-end Japanese club-maker has begun selling fully-assembled custom clubs direct to consumers for the first time through its new website. The innovative e-commerce platform allows golfers to create a custom-built set of clubs by matching Miura’s forged steel club heads with shafts and grips from some of the game’s top manufacturers. Miura doubled its U.S. business in 2018 after Howard Milstein acquired North American distribution rights, but the brand, while continuing to expand, still has just 115 dealers spread across the country. “A lot of people

Add Louis Oosthuizen to the lengthy list of notable veterans who broke through for a win in 2018. The former Open champ took control of the South African Open with an opening-round 62, and he finished things off with a pair of 67s over the weekend at Rand Park GC. It added up to a six-shot win, equaling the tournament record for margin of victory.

On Sunday morning, Cody Blick was standing in the kitchen of his rented house, making eggs and bacon, when his coach’s fiancée asked an unsettling question. Where are your clubs? The third-year pro from Northern California had stashed them in the garage the night before, on the eve of the final round of Tour Q-School, a day that would determine whether he’d have eight to 12 guaranteed starts on the developmental circuit in 2019 or a spring full of Monday qualifiers.
