Final round of fog-delayed tournament to be televised Monday (Jan. 28) at 2 p.m.
Monday, January 28
Is Tiger Woods back in major championship form? Could be. The world's best-known golfer is off to a hot start in 2013. As media outlets are noting, he has a six-stroke lead with 11 holes to play Monday (Jan. 28) in the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego. The tournament is being played at Torrey Pines, where Woods last won a major tournament, in 2008. And you can watch the final round of the fog-delayed tournament for yourself. Because Woods is in the lead, CBS will televise the final round beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern time Monday. And it's a reminder that the 2013 Masters, the year's first major golf tourney, will be played on April 11-14. As ESPN.com reported, Woods played 25 holes Sunday. He started with a two-shot lead and tripled it …

The annual quest for the 'Green Jacket' begins Thursday as the world's best golfers head to Augusta for their chance at golf's ultimate prize.
On Easter Sunday afternoon, golf fans worldwide will have their collective eyes glued to the television set to find out which golfer has managed to keep his nerves in check and game from going south during the final round of the 76th Masters Tournament. Played at the famed Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, GA, it is the ultimate dream of every golfer, professional or amateur, to don the Green Jacket which is presented to the winner.

For the first time in his storied career, Tiger Woods has missed the cut at the PGA Championship.
It was a bad week for Tiger Woods. Not only did the most famous golfer in the world fail to make the cut at the PGA Championship, he also failed to pick up enough points to qualify for the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup playoffs. Woods played better on Friday, following his miserable first-round 77 with a 73, but that was six away from making the cut. And by failing to pick up any FedEx Cup points, Woods didn't get in the Top 125 that qualify for the playoffs. That means he won't be playing at The Tour Championship next month at East Lake. Wood had little chance to make the cut at the Atlanta Athletic Club when the day started, but all hope was lost when he made back-to-back double-bogeys at No. 11 and 12. In 36 holes, Woods had 12 holes where he …

It's August so it's supposed to be hot, but how do the pros always look so cool?
Even though the temperatures registered in the mid 90s, it didn't stop the estimated 30,000 golf enthusiasts from enduring the heat Tuesday for the chance to see their favorite players. Fortunately, the PGA Championship organizers were thinking ahead and anticipating Georgia's August sultry weather and installed a few cool features to allow fans to escape the heat -- at least temporarily. The misting station near the practice putting green was a popular spot for spectators as were the fans mounted atop the bleachers overlooking the 18th green. The fans also spray a cool mist. A number of spectators were willing to climb to the top of the stands to take full advantage of the electric fans. Patch caught up with two young men taking a cool …
