UCLA golfer Sean Maruyama revels in Matsuyama’s Masters win

Few Masters Tournament viewers were as emotionally linked to the outcome Sunday than Sean Maruyama. The UCLA golfer gathered with his teammates as Hideki Matsuyama became the first Japanese man to win a major championship.. “I’ve played with him a few times, I’ve been with him on the range,” Maruyama said Monday. “It’s crazy to think he’s a Masters champ. I was a little worried at the end but he came through. We were all cheering him on.” Shigeki Maruyama walks with his son, Sean, off the firs...

Whicker: Hideki Matsuyama needed faith to come to U.S., and to make Masters history

He wasn’t the first Japanese man who was ready to win a major championship. He was one of the first who was willing. Long before Hideki Matsuyama tapped in the winning bogey at No. 18 on Sunday, there was Jumbo Ozaki, 5-foot-11, who won 140 tournaments on the Japanese Tour and was revered and mobbed as if Tiger Woods had walked to the first tee with The Beatles caddying. “I enjoyed the heck out of him,” said Brian Watts, after a long afternoon of rooting Matsuyama home from his living room in Ar...

Alexander: Can Sam Burns seal the deal at Riviera?

Sam Burns has been in this spot before, twice this season alone. Maybe it will help this weekend. The 24-year-old who starred at LSU had the 36-hole lead in the season-opening Safeway Open in Napa last September, two shots ahead at 15-under-par. He finished tied for seventh. He had the 54-hole lead eight weeks later in Houston, leading by a shot at 9-under at a venue a little less than four hours driving time from his hometown of Shreveport, La. He started the final round with a bogey and double...

TPC Boston Profile: PGA Tour Returns With The Northern Trust

BOSTON (CBS) — TPC Boston had been a regular stop on the PGA Tour since 2003. It hosted what was then known as the Deutsche Bank Championship over Labor Day weekend. The tournament was played Friday through Monday, rather than the typical Thursday through Sunday. In 2018, the Dell Technologies Championship (as it came to be called) ended when the PGA Tour cut the FedExCup Playoffs from four events to three. The event’s end meant TPC Boston no longer had a regular date with the PGA Tour’s best. I...

G2, a software startup that raised $100 million, spent lavishly on things like a $1 million office staircase. Then it had layoffs and filed for a PPP loan. It shows the challenge of giving startups a coronavirus bailout.

Chicago-based software review company G2 raised $100 million in venture capital and had big growth ambitions. It spent like a well-funded company, undergoing a $6 million office renovation and purchasing a domain name reportedly once valued at $1 million. But its ambitions surpassed its revenue growth, and in December 2019 the company laid off 10% of its workforce. The company applied for a Paycheck Protection Program loan to cover its payroll expenses during the coronavirus shutdown.  The com...

Masters Notes: Mike Weir pops up, Bernhard Langer rolls on, UCLA’s Devon Bling hangs in

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The most unexpected score on Masters Thursday came from Mike Weir, the 48-year-old champion from 2003. Weir hit 13 of 18 greens in regulation and put together a solid, even-par 72. You might have wondered what happened to Weir, the left-hander who was a back-to-back winner at the PGA Tour event at Riviera and had eight Tour wins overall. He played on the Tour only once last year and six times the previous year. Today he’s on the Tour, with the college kids and the hope mer...

March Odds To Win The Masters 2017

With just a month to go, here are the latest golf betting odds to win the Masters in 2017. Dustin Johnson is the bettors’ favorite, and for once, I don’t disagree. While I usually favor someone further back in the pack at, say 30/1 odds, I can’t think of a single reason why this is not Dustin Johnson’s year to win a green jacket. Indeed, I think he may dominate in a way we have not seen since the prime of Tiger Woods’ career. Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth are in at 17/1. For me, the bloom is o...
