Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau will compete in a 12-hole competition in Las Vegas to finally settle their feud once and for all. Well, supposedly anyway. "The Match" began in 2018 between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, and since then, the competition is typically between two teams made up of a golfer and another famous athlete who golfs.

Brooks performed an intimate acoustic show, offering selections from his own catalog of hits, and covered songs from James Taylor, Elton John, George Jones and more.At one moment soon after making his way onto the austere Opry House stage, Brooks gestured to the center stage circle of wood that was taken from the Grand Ole Opry’s former home at the Ryman Auditorium and installed when the Opry House opened in 1974—calling it “the same floorboards that the greatest of all have stood on.” From there, he offered a snippet of “Three Wooden Crosses,” which Randy Travis turned into a hit in 2002.

Tiger Woods says his legacy and allegiance are with PGA Tour
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Tiger Woods left little room for interpretation when it comes to Greg Norman’s latest attempt at a competing tour or other proposed leagues offering guaranteed riches to players to compete in team formats. He made his history on the PGA Tour and that was enough for him. “I’ve decided for myself that I’m supporting the PGA Tour. That’s where my legacy is,” Woods said. “I’ve been fortunate enough to have won 82 events on this tour and 15 major championships, and been a part of the World Golf Championships, the start of them and the end of them.” Woods has 18 titles in World Golf Championships, which now have only one event on this season’s schedule.
However, DeChambeau and Koepka have an opportunity to increase their chances of earning more money in the inaugural year of the PGA Tour's new initiative,. This program gives out $40 million to 10 different golfing stars of the year based on fan engagement. Even without "The Match," DeChambeau and Koepka were likely to get money from PIP due to their year-long feud.

Weekend practice sessions for Tiger fuel talk about return .
NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) — Tiger Woods kept everyone guessing at the Hero World Challenge with weekend range sessions that got as much attention as the two eagles Viktor Hovland made in his comeback victory. What's next? Only he knows. It started two weeks ago with a three-second video of one swing from a short iron and the message, “Making progress.” In his first news conference since the February car crash in Los Angeles that damaged his right leg, Woods painted a less optimistic picture. His answer to one query last Tuesday was that his leg and lower back hurt just sitting there.
