Moving Forward

Ever since die-hard golfer Bruce Jenner became Caitlyn Jenner, golfers have wanted to know: does she play from the red tees? Well, Today show cohost Matt Lauer finally revealed the answer this morning on the show when the two of them played a round at Woodland Hills Country Club in LA's San Fernando Valley. "When I told my friends we were coming to play golf, every one of them..." Lauer says before Jenner interrupts him. "I know what you're going to say... Of course I am."

"No, you're not," Lauer good-naturedly retorts. "It's either the whites or the blues for you."

"C'mon, Matt. You can't take it?"

"No, no, I can't. It's just not fair."

"I'll tell you what. I'll play from the tips. I really don't care," Jenner adds, before ripping one from what looks like the white tees.

FedEX Winners/Losers

After round two of the playoffs, things have shaken up a bit with Deutsche Bank champion Rickie Fowler jumping from outside the top 10 into third place behind Jason Day and Jordan Spieth. Filling out the top five are yesterday’s runner-up Henrik Stenson and Bubba Watson. Among the other big jumpers last week were Charley Hoffman whose strong showing  took him from 17th to 6th place, Jerry Kelly who leaped 29 places into 65th, and William McGirt who, with the help of a hole-out from the fairway for eagle on the 71st hole, vaulted 20 spots into 68th, two inside the Fedex points cut.  On the downside, several players shot themselves out of the race including Jason Dufner, Kevin Streelman, Marc Leishman, and Charles Howell. When the playoffs resume in two weeks with the BMW Championship at Conway Farms, the cut will go down to 30, and a new race for survival will be on, with the current bubble boy Louis Oosthuizen.

Cabot Cliffs

Canadian Club

Without doubt, one of the hottest courses of the year is the newly opened Cabot Cliffs, located on the western side of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. This Coore/Crenshaw design that covers Ireland-like dunes and spectacular rocky cliffs joins the highly regarded Cabot Links to make this a must-visit destination. Here’s a great way to see and play them both, October 14-15, and benefit the Golf Canada Foundation, the country’s leading source for golf philanthropy, providing grassroots development programs for kids, collegiate golfers, and Olympic golf, among other worthy goals. The two-day event includes one round on each course, meals, cocktails, prizes, and accommodations at the Cabot Links Lodge, for $10,000 for a foursome (only about $7,500 US).

The Mole Truth?

It’s the unofficial end of summer. Days getting shorter, tans fading, and chances to tee it up starting to blow away like the soon-to-be falling leaves. Plus, the news from the golf world is crazy: Feherty leaving CBS? No Grand Slam of Golf? The Donald is a cheater? Caitlyn Jenner is applying to private clubs as “Bruce”? (Which tees does she want to play from?) It’s enough to make you want to stick your head in the sand. The BUZZ thinks you need a “head-in-the-sand” kind of silly video to cheer you up. So here it is, something we found on YouTube that, honestly, we have no idea if it’s authentic or doctored. It features a disembodied hand, a really silly-sounding English accent, and—purportedly—a golf course superintendent who can find moles underground as if he’s dowsing for water. Is it real? Is it fake? Don’t know, and honestly, don’t care. It’s good for a laugh, which is just what we need right now. Enjoy, and make the most of this last long weekend of the summer. You’ve earned it!
