  • Noll third at Georgia Mid-Am

    In the opening round of the Georgia State Golf Association’s Mid-Amateur Championship, red numbers were hard to find around the Cuscowilla on Lake Oconee course.
    Dalton’s David Noll Jr. was tied for third at 2-over-par 72 after Friday’s opening 18 holes, sitting two strokes behind defending champion Cameron Hooper of Atlanta. None of the golfers in the 144-player field broke par on the 6,730-yard, par-70 course. More than half of the field was at 10-over or worse.

There are fewer weather delays — this past Sunday’s thunderstorm notwithstanding — and that has delivered record attendance and high-fives all around the PGA Tour headquarters.

  • Loran Smith: Big Three still a big deal for fans

    AUGUSTA — Sinatra is gone, but we still have his music. The same is true with Nat King Cole and Elvis. It would be nice to hear them in concert again, however. With Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, we are not sure what it will be like when they are no longer the honorary starters at the Masters.
