Golf’s biggest questions: Rickie Fowler’s major chances, Rory McIlroy’s return

Christmas is two weeks away, and the golf offseason has finally arrived … right in the middle of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season. I don’t really understand it, but I’m going to enjoy it because golf cranks up again just a few weeks after Christmas with the two-tournament Hawaii swing, and then we’re off on our nine-month journey. There is, of course, all kinds of intrigue going into the 2018 calendar year. There already was before Tiger Woods started swinging his driver like he was Tony Finau down in the Bahamas two weeks ago, and now that intrigue has been

OKC’s George: Pacers’ success brings ‘closure’

3:01 PM ET INDIANAPOLIS — As he returns to Indianapolis to play in the arena he called home for his first seven NBA seasons, Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George said Wednesday that he has regrets about how things ended with the Pacers. But he also has closure. “I think both sides — myself and the front office — would definitely like to have handled things better,” George said. “I for sure will take ownership on that. But I have no regrets on the outcome.” George declined to say specifically what those regrets are. “I know what I would’ve changed,”

‘Don’t let him shoot it!’ Inside Harden’s terrifying trick

8:58 AM ET HOUSTON — “By yourself! By yourself!” Cleveland Cavaliers coach Ty Lue hollers from the bench after a ball screen set at the top of the arc prompts power forward Jeff Green to switch onto James Harden, the Houston Rockets superstar who considers seeing a bigger defender alone in space “probably one of the best feelings in the world.” The game got close for the Houston Rockets, but the greatness of James Harden and Chris Paul held up in Portland. Ryan Anderson was one point shy of matching his season high, while Chris Paul nearly had a triple-double

The downside of modernizing the Rules of Golf

For the better part of the last decade, officials at the USGA and R&A have offered a simple refrain to anyone professing difficulty understanding the nuances of the Rules of Golf. Be patient, they insisted. Relief is on the way. This promise, at last, is close to being fulfilled. In March, the governing bodies jointly revealed their first pass at a “modernized” Rules book that tackled several of the game’s most complex, confusing and confounding capstones. Having solicited feedback from the golf community, officials from the two groups are currently in the throes of crafting the final text (sources say

Superintendent seeks revenge at Sun City golf tournament

Each December, Sun City golfers take on one of the most fun and most challenging games of the year during the annual Superintendent’s Revenge.

The annual tournament, now in its sixth year, is an opportunity for residents to not only have fun, but to give back to the community as well. Each player brought at least one new, unwrapped toy or book donation for Bluffton Self Help.

LeBron praises Lonzo, sees first-year parallels

3:02 AM ET CLEVELAND — LeBron James sat in front of his locker Tuesday night following the Cavaliers‘ 123-114 win over the Atlanta Hawks, a game in which he tied his career high in assists with 17, but he wasn’t ready to talk about his team’s 15th victory in its past 16 games. A television stationed across the locker room from James showed the Los Angeles Lakers battling the New York Knicks in overtime. James was going to watch the finish to the Knicks’ 113-109 win over the Cavs’ next opponent — the Lakers and their lightning-rod rookie, Lonzo Ball

The tempestuous weather this fall that hit the Caribbean spared several islands where there was little to minimal damage. If you are in search of a getaway where you can play a good round of golf and perhaps spend some time on a beach this winter, here are a few places worth checking out.

The Abaco Club at Winding Bay, Abaco Island, Bahamas

The Abaco Club at Winding Bay on Abaco Island offers a true Scottish-style links course designed by renowned golf architects, Donnie Steel and Tom Mackenzie. The par 72 course is 7,138 yards and makes the most of its seaside location with pot bunkers and challenging, sloping greens. A long course that is designed to play firm and fast, the course is not typical of the Caribbean. There is also a world-class practice facility with a double-end range as well as a short-game practice area designed to enable players to practice every shot of 100 yards or less. Although the club is private, there are rental villas on the property and guests are able to play the course. International memberships are available to those who do not own a home at the club or elsewhere in the Bahamas. Members have the right to bring guests and area allotted 20 tee times per year.

The Ocean Club, A Four Seasons Resort, Paradise Island, Bahamas

The Ocean Club’s golf course offers striking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Nassau Harbor. The Tom Weiskopf-designed course is a par-72 that stretches over 7,100 yards on Paradise Island peninsula, where crosswinds challenge even the most experienced players. Like other Weiskopf courses, this one was designed to integrate the natural landscape. Management of The Ocean Club was recently taken over by Four Seasons Resorts & Hotels. Greens fees through December 31 2018 are $275 ($195 after 1 pm) and $295 from January 1 through April 30 ($245 after 1 pm). The Ocean Club is a private resort, and only guests are able to use the golf course.
