Golf’s two governing bodies changed a rule on wind-blown balls that resulted in penalties this year for three-time major winner Padraig Harrington and U.S. Open Champion Rory McIlroy.
Padraig Harrington won his first golf title in two years, finishing three shots clear of Noh Seung-yul at the Johor Open in Malaysia. Richard Green took the Portugal Masters title.
Tiger Woods will play alongside Ireland’s Padraig Harrington and U.S. Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III for the first two rounds of next week’s PGA Championship.
"Every time the wind blows I am worried that my ball is going to move and I am worried about grounding my putter, distracting me from trying to hole my putt."
