Tiger Woods might not be playing golf right now on the PGA Tour, but he is sure keeping himself busy with golf off the course.

According to a report on golf.com, Woods has been selected to redesign a golf course in Beijing, China. The course will become a flagship in a group of a dozen or so private clubs that will provide members access to all the courses in that group.

This will be Tiger's first foray into the Asian market, and the report goes on to say that the deal is a lucrative one, paying him almost $17 million for the two-course deal.

Woods will redesign the Beijing Tain'an Holiday Golf Club, a 27-hole facility just outside the capital. When it re-opens, it will be called Pacific Links National Golf Club. Pacific Links International, a…

In March of 1965, the PGA of America was at a crossroads. It was looking for a new place to house its offices but wasn't sure where to go.

John D. MacArthur, wanting to be under the PGA branch invited them to come look at his club. He offered to let them work out of his clubhouse at PGA National Golf Club (now the present day BallenIsles). The PGA of America complied and thus began the now 50 year history of the partnership between the PGA of America and the Palm Beach Gardens area.

The area back then, however, looked nothing like it does today. I-95 ended at PGA Boulevard, known back then as Monet road. Northlake Boulevard was a gravel road west of US 1. Today's PGA National did not exist, and other than MacArthur’s PGA National Golf Club…

Brooks Koepka does not have a history of withdrawing from golf tournaments. In fact, heading into this weekend, he had yet to withdraw from an event during play on either the European or PGA Tours.

That streak came to an end on Sunday, when Koepka had to withdraw from the Arnold Palmer Invitational after 11 holes with a rib injury. It wasn't just any rib injury either. Koepka's rib had actually become dislocated earlier in the week and played through until he just coudln't go anymore.

"They put it back in place twice yesterday and it didn't pop out again today, it's just very painful and very tough to breathe. It's not fun," the Palm Beach Gardens resident said.

Koepka said the initial dislocation occured before his round started on Saturday. He…

At Arnold Palmer's traditional Wednesday before the Arnold Palmer Invitational press conference, the King announced that come May all 18 of Bay Hill's greens and the practice greens will all be completely re-done.

Come May 15th, Palmer will close down Bay Hill for the majority of the summer while all 18 greens and the practice putting greens get a complete overhaul.

"I have every intention on May the 15th of closing the golf course and re-doing all 18 greens and the putting green," Palmer said. 

At one point, nine holes will be open and available for members and guests, but as Palmer put it, if you want to play 18, you will have to play it twice.
