The 18 is a look at eighteen stories from the previous week or so in the world of golf, and they will usually be on stories that I didn’t dedicate a full post towards. Expect a combination of thoughts, GIFs, images and anything else that caught my eye from the past seven days. Some will […]
Rickie Fowler won the 2017 Honda Classic on Sunday, firing rounds of 66-66-65-71 en route to a four shot victory over Morgan Hoffmann and Gary Woodland. It’s his fourth PGA Tour win, and seventh as a professional for the 28-year old. He joins a crazy good list of winners in 2017 that already featured the likes […]
