Penalty shots can be “round killers”. Hitting OB (out-of-bounds) is like throwing two shots out the window and hitting into a hazard can easily turn a par or a bogey into a triple or a double. If you’re consistently shooting in the mid-80’s, chances are you’re taking at least a couple of penalty shots every round and avoiding them might be what you need to get into the 70’s. You don’t need to make a lot of birdies to shoot a good score. You just need to play away from trouble and avoid big numbers. Always weigh the risk-reward and if the reward simply isn’t there, play it safe. Par is never a bad score.

Jon Rahm pulled out of a four-way tie with a 12-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole and then held on with pars for a 2-under 69 and a one-shot victory Sunday in the Mexico Open. Rahm won for the first time since the U.S. Open last summer at Torrey Pines, and the relief showed in the smile and the way he pumped his arm and then pounded down his fist after tapping in for par on the 18th at Vidanta Vallarta. Tony Finau and Brandon Wu each closed with a 63, while Kurt Kitayama birdied the final hole from a back bunker for a 68. They tied for second. Rahm at No. 2 in the world was a heavy favorite and he played that way from his opening 64. He just didn't feel any expectations. With the win, he moves to sixth in the FedExCup standings. “I like to think every time I tee it up I'm a favorite. I play to win,” Rahm said. “Fortunately, I got my seventh PGA TOUR win. It was a pretty stressful weekend, all the way to the end.” Rahm has 14 victories worldwide. He had gone 17 starts without winning, matching the longest such in his career. The Spaniard has at least one victory in six full years as a pro. Source: PGA TOUR

GOLF TIP: HEAD TO THE DRIVING RANGE AFTER WORK

Instead of heading to the bar for a drink or two when 5:00 strikes, opt for the driving range. Not only will you gradually improve the consistency in your swing, but you’ll be able to use this time to de-stress and unwind before you head home for the night.

TEAM FORMAT: 

The Zurich Classic of New Orleans will use an alternating-round Four-ball and Foursomes format. The first and third rounds will be Four-ball, and the second and final rounds will be Foursomes.

For Foursomes play, players will rotate tee shots. One player will hit the tee shots on all the odd-numbered holes, and the other will hit the tee shot on even-numbered holes. Example: Player A and Player B are partners. On the first hole, Player A tees off; Player B plays the second shot; Player A plays the third shot; and so on until the ball is holed. The total strokes taken will result in the team’s score for that hole.

For Four-Ball play, the players on each team will each play his own ball throughout the entirety of the round, with the best score on each hole recorded. Example: On the first hole, both golfers on each team tee off. Player A pars the hole and Player B birdies it. The team will be credited with a birdie.

Field: The starting field will consist of 80 teams (160 players). Each of the top available players from the PGA TOUR Priority Rankings who commits to the tournament will choose his partner, who in turn must have PGA TOUR status unless he is chosen as a tournament sponsor exemption.

 
 

MAKING THE CUT: Following the conclusion of the second round, there will be a cut to the low 33 teams and ties at the 33th position. 

IN CASE OF A TIE: A hole-by-hole (sudden death) playoff will be contested with the first hole played as foursomes (alternate shot), the second hole played as four-ball (best ball) where the formats alternate every hole, thereafter, on a set rotation of holes.

PRIZES: FedExCup points and prize money will be awarded to teams making the cut based on combining every two positions from the distribution table for a standard TOUR event, with each team member receiving an equal share. For instance, the winning team will evenly split first and second place FedExCup points (500 for first and 300 for second for 800 total points, or 400 for each player). Official prize money will be distributed in the same manner.
