Georgia Southern’s Steven Fisk quietly rises to elite in college golf

Editor’s Note: This story appeared in the Nov. 20 digital issue of Golfweek The top of the men’s individual college golf rankings is a who’s who of big names from Power Five conferences. Then there’s Steven Fisk. The Georgia Southern junior won twice this fall (once by 12 shots), nearly posted college golf’s first 59 and has rocketed to No. 3 in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings after finishing 2016-17 at No. 131. He’s the surprise of the fall – at least to those outside his team. Fisk qualified for the 2017 U.S. Amateur, where he missed match play by two shots. It was probably the worst he played all summer, and he still didn’t look out of his depth. It was, oddly, just the boost Fisk needed. “I

Davis Love to undergo hip replacement surgery

NAPLES, Fla. – Lexi Thompson can take a punch. You have to give her that. So can Ariya Jutanugarn, who beat Thompson in the gut-wrenching conclusion to the CME Group Tour Championship Sunday at Tiburon Golf Club. They both distinguished themselves overcoming adversity this season. The problem for Thompson now is that she’ll have to wait two months to show her resolve again. She will go into the long offseason with the memory of missing a 2-foot putt for par that could have won her the championship, her first Rolex Player of the Year Award and her first Rolex world No. 1 ranking. Thompson took home the CME Globe $1 million jackpot and Vare Trophy for low scoring as nice consolation prizes, but

Golf-Spieth’s Sydney love affair comes with a cash bonus

World number two Jordan Spieth will be well rewarded for his trip Down Under this week regardless of whether he successfully defends his title at the Australian Open, a tournament he has developed a love affair with over the last four years. The American’s appearance fee for playing for the Stonehaven Cup at The Australian course in Sydney from Thursday will be in the vicinity of $1 million, according to several golf insiders contacted by Reuters. “From my perspective, Jordan is the biggest man in world golf,” Pitt said in a telephone interview, citing Spieth’s three major titles by the age of 24.

Jeremy Roenick took on a terrifying rattlesnake with a pair of golf clubs

Rattlesnakes are relatively common in Arizona. After all, it’s the desert. That being said, if you ever encounter a rattlesnake in your oddly empty garage, don’t attempt to do what former NHL star Jeremy Roenick did on Sunday. Seriously, don’t. Roenick went face-to-face with a rattlesnake in his Scottsdale-area home, taking on the reptile with a pair of golf clubs. I saw a snake (non-venomous) in Flagstaff once and didn’t try to fight it. I took a picture and made a joke on Twitter before running past it and letting the snake live its life. Go me! Now, rattlesnakes are more common during the spring and early fall months in Arizona, but they’re around on warm days. And since Arizona has more venomous
