Earlier in the week, while Nicklaus was making final preperations before welcoming the PGA Tour to his Muirfield Village for the annual tour stop, the Huffington Post was naming Jack to it's list of top 50 most powerful Americans 50 years of age and older.

Nicklaus came in at number 30 on a list that featured some of the most influential actors, writers, media moguls, innovators, fashion icons, singers, business leaders, and politicians.

North Palm Beach resident Clancy Waugh shot an 8-under par 64 on Monday at Willoughby Golf Club in Stuart to earn Medalist honors and advance out of the Local U.S. Open Qualifier.

The Benjamin High School grad and current Wake Forest golfer earned himself a trip to the June 8th 36 hole Sectional Qualifier at the Bear's Club in Jupiter as the low medalist.

For Waugh, it's a little bit of redemption after a less than stellar sophomore season with the Demon Deacons. After being named Freshman Athlete of the Year and becoming only the 11th Wake Forrest golfer in win a tournament last year, in 2015, Waugh had finished no better than 40th and just a week ago missed qualifying for NCAA regionals by one shot.

"I made every putt I really had a look at,”

Golf.com conducted a survey with Tour pros on the PGA, Champions, and LPGA Tours. They provided them with anonymity and asked them some hard hitting questions. What we got was 100% honesty on everything from who will win more majors between Tiger Woods and Rory Mcllroy to would golfers vote for Hillary Clinton in the next Presidential election if she lowered taxes. Here are some of the highlights from the survey.

PGA Tour pros were asked "Who is more likely to win 19 majors: Tiger or Rory?" The Jupiter Island resident was given the upper hand on that one with 76% of the Tour pros surveyed thought Tiger would get to 19 first. Considering that Tiger currently has 14, while Rory only has four, I would tend to agree with them there.

53% of Tour pros think

For so many years, we all would have had better luck getting into Fort Knox then getting into Tiger Woods' mind and finding out what he really was thinking. A human PR machine, Woods was so calculated in everything he ever said to the media you would have thought that he practiced the answers before each media session.

Over the past few years, Woods has opened up a little more. 2015 specifically has been the most transparent I think any of us that have followed his career has ever seen him. He opened up early in 2015 and shared his struggles with his new swing patterns and what his plans were with new "swing consultant" Chris Como. Then, when he announced he was taking a leave to get his game fixed, he was open an

The Players Championship might not be a major, just don't tell that to anyone that plays on the PGA Tour.

Regularly called "The Unofficial Fifth Major", The Players Championship held at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL is the strongest full field PGA Tour event on the season. Like the European Tour's equivalence of the BMW PGA Championship, The Players Championship is the flagship event on the PGA Tour, held on the grounds of the PGA Tour's offices, and features the largest prize purse of any Tour event.

One of the other things the event does is give us some of the best pairings of the calendar year for Thursday and Friday and 2015 is no exception. In fact, Finchem and Co have given us some absolute monster pairings that will certainly wet the
