Supported by PGA, LPGA, USGA and others . . .
    PALM BEACH GARDENS - In response to the severe challenges impacting golf communities nationwide, the Golf Emergency Relief Fund has been established to provide short-term financial assistance to workers in the golf industry who are the backbone of our sport and face significant financial hardship, including those suffering as a result of COVID-19. 

    This relief effort was initiated by the PGA of America through a lead pledge of $5 million and a matching fund for gifts by third parties of up to $2.5 million. The PGA contribution included every member of the executive leadership team voluntarily reducing their compensation, and additionally, personal donations from members of the Board of Directors have been pledged. The effort is also being supported in various ways by a number of industry organizations, including the GCSAA, PGA TOUR, LPGA, USGA, NGCOA and AGM. 

    Managed by E4E Relief, an independent third-party public charity, the fund will provide grants to certain industry workers, inclusive of golf association members, employees of local/state golf associations, caddies and certain professionals playing on developmental tours to help offset COVID-19 related financial hardships, such as living and medical expenses. 

    Further details around eligibility are forthcoming, with applications being accepted as early as Thursday, April 16 at 2 p.m. ET at https://relief.golf. 

    “The golf industry is in an unprecedented crisis, and our friends, colleagues and their families need our help right away,” said PGA President Suzy Whaley. “People throughout golf are driven by a strong desire to help others every day. We have to ensure that the heart and soul of our game - our people - are able to get back on their feet and continue to serve others down the road. Eventually, golf will return, but we first need to reach out and help people in our industry during this national emergency.”

    “The golf industry steers $4 billion to charity each year,” added PGA of America CEO Seth Waugh. “Now, we need to come to the aid of those who make this game we love so special, to help ensure their livelihood. Our leadership team is so passionate about this that each has volunteered to take a substantial reduction from their own compensation to support the PGA’s efforts. With matching, our goal is to raise at least $10 million for this important effort.”

    “The Golf Emergency Relief Fund is designed to assist those who need our help right away. These associations and their respective members run the game locally across the country, and the players seeking to make a career at the highest level are at the heart of the dream. These are the people who are the backbone of making sure our game continues to thrive. Supporting them through this difficult time is not only the human thing, but it is also the smart thing to do to ensure our industry rebounds quickly.”

    Individuals eligible to apply for aid through the Golf Emergency Relief Fund are:

PGA of America professionals (includes members, students and associates)

LPGA professionals (includes members and students/apprentices)

Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA) members

Employed or contracted as a caddie of one of the following caddie companies
(qualifying employers and their subsidiaries) Caddienow, Caddiemaster, 4C Caddies, Premier Caddies, ClubUp, CaddieU, Circuit Caddie and Caddy King

Players in developmental tours operated by the LPGA (Symetra Tour)

Employees of PGA of America Sections

    The first phase of the fund will distribute two tiers of funding with $500 grants for basic needs and up to $1,500 grants for critical needs, with applications being reviewed, approved and grants disbursed by E4E on a rolling first-come, first-served basis. A second phase, currently scheduled to roll out after the completion of Phase 1, will have a longer application process, and distribute funds of up to $3,500, as reviewed and approved by E4E on a rolling first-come, first-served basis.

All events cancelled up to Masters

    It didn't take long for the PGA Tour to amend its earlier Thursday statement that the TPC would be played today and through Sunday without spectators. Late in the day, the tour cancelled the final three rounds in Ponte Vedra, plus the next four events scheduled to be played over the next three weeks. 

    The Masters would be next, and the honchos in Augusta are implementing a wait-and-see stance before announcing their intentions. Chances are that event will be cancelled, too, or, at the least, postponed.

Until further notice . . .

    As the Tournament Players Championship was airing on Golf Channel today, PGA Tour Commissioner Jay Monahan announced that after today's first round, the PGA Tour will follow the lead of the NBA, the NHL, tennis and several other sports organizations in an attempt to control coronavirus as far as their events are concerned.

    For the time being, the Tour will not suspend play as other organizations have done. However, spectators will not be allowed to attend tournaments from now through the Texas Valero Open, beginning with tomorrow's second-round play at the TPC course in Ponte Vedra.

    Of course, that decision is open to constant revision, depending on how the virus spreads, or is considered in check. Next week's event is the Valspar Championship at Innisbrook in Palm Harbor, followed by the WGC Championship in Austin, Texas and the satellite Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship in Dominican Republic the same week, then the Valero Open. 

    The Masters, which is set to begin April 9, is not yet involved, until further notice.

Three former winners are in 107-player field . . .

     Erik Barnes of Bradenton and Brad Brunner of Tampa deadlocked for first with 7-under-par 64s Wednesday in the opening round of the 15th edition of the Ocala Open at Candler Hills Country Club. The duo holds a one-stroke edge over Vincent Torgah of Jacksonville, Michael Visacki of Sarasota and perennial Ocala Open participant Willie Mack III of Flint, Michigan. 

    There are three former winners of the event in the field of 107; 2018 champion Kevin Aylwin of New Smyrna Beach opened with 4-under-67, 2014 champ Patrick Sheehan of Oviedo is tied for 25th with 2-under-69, and 2012 champ Yohann Benson of Harmony is at 1-under 70.

    Former PGA Tour player Tadd Fujikawa of St. Simon's Island posted a 1-under 70, and ex-Gator and Tour player Bubba Dickerson of Fernandina Beach, winner of the 2001 U. S. Amateur, shot 2-under 69. Bubba also won the Chitimacha Open in Louisiana while on the Nationwide Tour. 

    Among the locals, Osten Waite, son of teacher and Champions Tour player Grant Waite, was best with a 1-under 70. Tied at 73 are Ocalans Orlando Merced and Christian Anderson, along with Tyler Hock of Dunnellon. Stu Michaels of The Villages posted a 76 and Marty Musgrave of Ocala an 82.

Wins by one stroke over Leishman . . .

    Bay Hill proved to be too much once again for the field in the Arnold Palmer Invitational yesterday, as, incredibly, only four players broke par for 72 holes. Tyrell Hatton made plenty of mistakes over the final 18 holes, but they were less than his closest rivals and he won by one stroke at 4 under. 

    Marc Leishman held on for second at 3 under, followed by Sungjae Im at 2 under and Bryson DeChambeau at 1 under. That was it. Now, they all move up the coast about a couple of hours to Ponte Vedra for the $15 million Tournament Players Championship, unofficially called the Tour's fifth Major.

    The TPC field is loaded - with the notable absence of Tiger Woods, who is still nursing an injury, and Ted Potter, who hasn't done anything lately to make him eligible. Gators Matt Every, Brian Gay and Billy Horschel are aboard, along with Seminoles Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger.

Tyrell Hatton holds two-stroke lead at 6 under . . .

    The big winner at the Bay Hill Golf Club and Lodge yesterday was the Bay Hill Golf Club and Lodge. Saturday's all-day wind and chill led to an afternoon in which, incredibly, only one player shot under par at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Max Homa's 2-under-70 was two strokes better than a group of seven at even-par 72, on a day when eight players shot in the 80s. 

    When the smoke cleared, Tyrell Hatton, who had an up-and-down round himself, held a two-stroke lead over Marc Leishman and Rory McIlroy. Hatton posted a 1-over 73 and is 6 under heading into today's finale. Leishman's even-par 72 has him at 4 under, along with McIlroy, who also shot 73. The 72 group also included Xander Schauffele, Viktor Hovland and Bryson DeChambeau. 

    Gator Billy Horschel is tied for 51st at plus 7 after a 5-over 77, and Brian Gay is tied for 59th st plus 9 after a 6-over 78. Seminole Brooks Koepka was one of the plus-80 shooters (81) and is also 9 over.

Matt follows his 65 with an 83 . . .

    After turning in a flawless scorecard that included seven birdies at Bay Hill on Thursday, Matt Every imploded in the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Friday. The ex-Gator made just one birdie in round 2, added four double bogeys, and shot 11-over 83, an unbelievable 18-stroke difference over the 36 holes. And Matt wound up missing the cut of plus 3 by one stroke.

    The two other Gators in the 141-man field, Billy Horschel and Brian Gay, both made the cut at 1-over-par 145, same as Seminole Brooks Koepka. The other Seminole, Hank Lebioda, missed the cut at plus 10. 

    Heading into round 3, Tyrell Hatton (68-69-137) and Sung Kang (69-68-137) are tied for the lead at 7 under, one better than Danny Lee. There are three tied for fourth at 5 under, including Rory McIlroy (66-73-139).

    The big guns who missed the cut is formidable - Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson, Tony Finau, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, Justin Rose, Alex Noren, Padraig Harrington and Tommy Fleetwood. Jason Day's injuries caused him to leave the course in mid-round.

Long birdie putts lead to 7-under 65 . . .

    Matt every has played in 237 PGA Tour events and managed just two victories - coming in back-to-back years in the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2014 and 2015. In his last tournament, the Honda Classic last week, the ex-Gator bowed out after shooting an 85 on Friday, so there was no doubt a great deal of eye-opening yesterday when Matt posted a bogey-free 65, 7 under par over the Bay Hill layout. 

    Matt holds a one-stroke lead over favorite Rory McIlroy, and two over Talor Gooch and Scottie Scheffler. Among his seven birdies, Matt canned putts on the back nine of 35, 40 and 30 feet. 

    There are two other Gators in the field of 121: Billy Horschel is at even par 72 and is tied for 45th, and Brian Gay is at 1-over 73, tied for 60th. The two Seminoles are Brooks Koepka and Hank Lebioda: Koepka is in the even-par group and Lebioda is tied for 107th at 4-over 76. The early projected cut is 1 over, so only Lebioda is in the twilight zone heading into round 2.

Ted shoots 72-72-144, misses by 1

    The cut line at the Honda Classic kept dropping over two days until it finally settled in at plus 3 Friday evening, but Ted Potter still missed it by one stroke after tacking on his second straight 2-over-par 72 yesterday.

    The PGA National Champion course proved to be the winner for the second day as first-round leaders Tom Lewis and Harris English, who began the day in the lead at 4 under, couldn't be found after 36 holes, while Brendan Steele took over the top at 5 under 135. Steele holds a one-stroke lead over Lee Westwood, Luke Donald and J. T. Poston. There are four more at 3 under, including Gary Woodland.

    Ted began on the front nine and as he has so many times in recent months, went to 1 under quickly with a birdie on No. 3. But he couldn't keep it going, and made four bogeys and just one birdie over the next six holes and went to the back at 4 over. With the cut line eventually moving to plus 3, all Ted needed to do was make one birdie on the back to get to the weekend. But he made 9 pars and wound up one shot short.

    Gators: Only one made it, Billy Horschel posting 73-67-140, even par, tied for 21st. Brian Gay (74-75), Camilo Villegas (75-77) and Matt Every (74-85) missed the cut. Seminoles: Daniel Berger made it with 69-70-139, 1 under, tied for 15th. Brooks Koepka (74-74) and Hank Lebioda (73-78) are heading home.

Ted makes six birdies, posts 2-over 72 . . .

    Under normal circumstances, if Ted Potter took a 6-over-par 9 on a par 3 during the first nine holes of a PGA tournament, he'd pretty much be out of the running as far as making the 36-hole cut. And Ted did make a 9 yesterday - on the 15th hole at the Honda Classic, his sixth hole of the day - but, amazingly, he's not only still in the hunt in the $7 million event, he's within the cut line after 18 holes. 

    Ted was 1-under going to No. 15 after making a birdie on 10, and adding pars on the next four holes. The disastrous 9 dropped him to 5 over with 13 to play, and he made good use of the rest of the afternoon, making five more birdies, plus two bogeys, and he wound up with a 72 over the par-70 PGA National Champion course in Palm Beach Gardens. 

    The 2-over-par round left him in a tie for 62nd heading into today's round, showing how difficult the course played for the 144-player field.

    There were no extra-low rounds posted, and Tom Lewis and Harris English, both of whom received sponsors' exemptions, were tied for the lead at 4-under 66. There's a 5-way tie for third at 3 under, which includes Lee Westwood.

    GATORS & SEMINOLES: Billy Horschel - 73; Brian Gay - 74; Matt Every - 74; Camilo Villegas - 75. Daniel Berger - 69; Hank Lebioda - 73; Brooks Koepka - 74.

Ted earns $101,250 . . .

    With a final-round 69, Ted Potter turned in his best overall performance of the 2019-2020 season, finishing in a tie for sixth yesterday at the $3 million Puerto Rico Open. Ted's rounds of 68-70-67-69-274, 14 under par over the par-72 Grand Reserve Country Club course, beat his previous season best of 8 under at the Sony Open, where he tied for seventh. His finish broke a string of three straight missed cuts.

    Ted wound up six strokes behind Viktor Hovland, who made a long birdie putt on the 72nd hole to get to 20 under and prevent him from heading to a playoff with Josh Teater. It was another four strokes back to third place, and five back to sixth, which Ted shared with Martin Laird and Matthew NeSmith. 

    Ted's check came to $101,250, raising his season's total to $345,565, and he moved up to 118th place on the PGA Tour money list. Oddly enough, the 55 FedEx points he received also moved him up to 118th on that list with 159 points. 

    Ted began by making four birdies and one bogey for a front-nine 33. On the back, he bogeyed 10, but got that back with a birdie on 14, and he could have moved to 15 under on No. 15 if not for missing a short birdie putt. He then parred out. 

    The Honda Classic at PGA National is up next for Ted and caddy Jon Balmer as the Tour heads for the Florida swing. Also on the  entry list are a full complement of Gators and Seminoles; Camilo Villegas, Matt Every, Brian Gay and Billy Horschel for the former group, and Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger and Hank Lebioda for the latter. 

    Following the $7 million Honda are the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, Tournament Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass and Valspar Championship at Innisbrook.

Teed is 11 under par . . .

    Ted Potter moved into a tie for seventh at the Puerto Rico Open with a solid 5-under-par 67 in round 3, highlighted by his second eagle of the event. Ted's rounds of 68-70-67-205, 11 under, left him seven strokes shy of leader Viktor Hovland, who put up an 8-under 64 on Saturday, and, at 18 under, holds a one-stroke edge over Martin Laird and two over Josh Teater.

    Although Ted would have to go bananas to overtake the top three, he's just two strokes out of fourth place and reaching that would result in his best performance of the season. Alone in fourth place in the $3 million event would be worth $147,000. 

    Ted began on the par-36 front nine at the Grand Reserve Country Club with birdies on 2 and 6 and the eagle 3 sandwiched in between at No. 5. After a bogey at 7 he made the turn at 3-under 33. On the back nine, Ted made birdies at 10, 13 and 17, with a bogey at 14, for 34 and a 5-under 67. He was tied for first in the eagle category after 54 holes. He tees off today at 12:55 with Tyler McCumber as his partner. At 11 under, Ted is in a five-way tie that  includes former leader Kyle Stanley, who dropped off the pace after a third-round 71. 

    Gator Chris Couch continued his run toward regaining his exemption with a 3-under 69 and is tied for 12th at 10 under (66-71-69-206). 

      

Saturday, February 22, 2020
Ted's 68-70-138 is 6 under par. . .

    Kyle Stanley was unable to come close to his opening-round 64 on day 2 of the Puerto Rico Open, but his 2-under 70, putting him at 10 under par, was just good enough to keep him in a deadlock for the top in the $3 million satellite event. Stanley allowed the field to close in, and there are three players tied with him -  Josh Teater, Emiliano Grillo and Viktor Hovland. Sam Ryer is all by himself at 9 under.

    Ted Potter posted a 2-under-par 70 and is within hailing distance of the top at the halfway point with his rounds of 68-70-138, 6 under. Ted began on the back nine and parred his first 10 holes. He then birdied both par-5s on the front, the second and the fifth, and wound up tied for 19th.

    Ex-Gator Chris Couch made the cut easily in his quest to regain his exemption after a long layoff from Tour play. The cut came at 2 under and Chris beat that by five with his 66-71-137, good for a tie for 10th. Seminole Hank Lebioda was never in the hunt, missing the cut with 74-75-149.       

Friday, February 21, 2020
Ted is 4 behind, tied for 14th . . .

    Ted Potter teed off at 7:43 yesterday morning in the Puerto Rico Open and the early start paid off in spades. Ted parred the first hole, then eagled the par-5 second, and went on to a 4-under-par 68 to tie for 14th place, four strokes behind Kyle Stanley's 64. Stanley holds a two-stroke lead over a group of six at 6-under 66.

    Ted birdied the fourth hole to turn in 3-under 33, then added a three-putt bogey on 14 and birdies on 15 and 17 for a back-nine 35. He came into the $3 million event at the Grand Reserve Country Club in 141st place on the FedEx Cup points list, and a high finish on Sunday can move him into the top 125. 

    Ex-Gator Chris Couch is among the six tied at 66 in his first start since he deadlocked for 39th at 12 under in the Barbasol Championship last July. Chris, a long-time Gainesville resident even after he graduated from UF, now lives in Winter Garden. He turns 47 on May 1, and it can be assumed the PGA Tour Champions is on his bucket list in three years. Since returning from a prolonged injury, Chris has earned $27,166, making three of four cuts, and this event could turn everything around for him. He made six birdies without a bogey yesterday. 

    Seminole Hank Lebioda shot 2-over 74 in the opener, and he's three strokes over the early projected cut line.

Field includes many non-exempt players . . .

    Ted Potter will attempt to snap his string of three missed cuts at the $3 million Puerto Rico Open this week, in a field replete with fringe players who have lost their exemptions and been unable to make it into most of the PGA fields in recent months, or even years.

    That long list trying to make it back to the big time at the par-72 Grand Reserve Country Club includes Robert Allenby, Ricky Barnes, Charlie Beljan, Chad Campbell, Alex Cejka, Daniel Chopra, Gator Chris Couch, Carlos Franco, John Merrick, D. A. Points, Dicky Pride, Freddy Jacobson, John Rollins and John Senden. Among those who have been playing but are not eligible for the WGC-Mexico are Bill Haas, J. J. Henry, Alex Noren, Peter Uihlein and Jhonattan Vegas.  

    Last year's winner of the event at the Coco Beach Golf & Country Club was Martin Trainer and he's back to try to take home $540,000 again. Couch played last year in one of the few events he has made it into since returning from injury; he finished tied for 66th and earned $6,240.

Adam is 11 under; Tiger finishes last . . .

    All Adam Scott needed to win the Genesis Invitational by one stroke was to make a par on the 18th hole. But Adam put an exclamation point on his victory by making a birdie, finishing at 11 under par. Two strokes behind were Sung Kang, Scott Brown and Matt Kuchar as the Riviera Country Club proved to be too much for all those who made the cut, most of all Tiger Woods, who shot a final-round 77 and finished dead last at 11 over.  

    Nobody was able to make any kind of late run, and the best rounds of the day were a few 3-under-par 68s. Scott was able to hang on even though he shot 1-under 70. 

    Seminole Brooks Koepka closed at even par and tied for 43rd, and the top players will now head for the WGC-Mexico Championship with its purse of $10,500,000. The rest will be off to the $3 million Puerto Rico Open.  

Sunday, February 16, 2020
Three tied at top at 10 under . . .

    There are 16 players either on the lead or within four shots of the lead after 54 holes of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, and it promises to be quite a finish late this afternoon. 

    Adam Scott, who shot a 67 Saturday, moved into a tie for the top at 10 under par, along with Matt Kuchar (70) and Rory McIlroy (68).  Russell Henley and Harold Varner II are knocking on the door at 9 under, and Dustin Johnson's 67 lifted him to 8 under.

    Tiger Woods knocked himself out of contention with a 5-over 76, highlighted by back-to-back early holes where he four-putted and three-putted. 

    Seminole Brooks Koepka is tied for 28th at 3 under.
