Tiger Woods will begin the 2019 season in the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines next week.

Woods made his commitment Wednesday morning. The decision was expected. Woods has won eight times at Torrey Pines, including seven Farmers titles and his most-recent major, the 2008 U.S. Open.

Woods is ranked No. 12 in the world, his highest perch since 2014. He ended his five-year victory drought at the Tour Championship in September.

Jordan Spieth remains a co-favorite to win 2019 Masters at 12-1 in spite of his lowest Official World Golf Ranking spot in more than five years.

Spieth, who hasn’t won on the PGA Tour since the 2017 Open Championship, slipped to No. 18 in the latest OWGR this week. He began last year ranked No. 2 in the world. Spieth’s No. 18 slot is his lowest rank since December 2013. The 2015 Masters champion missed the cut at the Sony Open last weekend after a 73-66. It marked the second straight cut missed by Spieth.

Justin Rose joins Spieth as a co-favorite at 12-1.

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka are fetching 14-1 odds to win the first major of the year set for April 11-14 at Augusta National.

Defending champion Patrick Reed is holding at 30-1. He joins 2019 Sentry TOC winner Xander Schauffele, Hideki Matsuyama and Tommy Fleetwood at that price.

Here are the odds to win the 2019 Masters, according to golfodds.com and the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.

Shane Lowry works to escape Rory McIlroy’s shadow with 62 in Abu Dhabi http://nydailynews.sportstonews.com/2019/01/16/shane-lowry-works-to-escape-rory-mcilroys-shadow-with-62-in-abu-dhabi/ http://nydailynews.sportstonews.com/2019/01/16/shane-lowry-works-to-escape-rory-mcilroys-shadow-with-62-in-abu-dhabi/#respond Wed, 16 Jan 2019 16:21:38 +0000 http://nydailynews.sportstonews.com/2019/01/16/shane-lowry-works-to-escape-rory-mcilroys-shadow-with-62-in-abu-dhabi/ Shane Lowry works to escape Rory McIlroy's shadow with 62 in Abu Dhabi in first round of HSBC Classic.

The post Shane Lowry works to escape Rory McIlroy’s shadow with 62 in Abu Dhabi appeared first on New York Daily News.

Organizers of the $7 million Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship would have been hoping for a Northern Irishman to dominate the tournament, especially in the event’s inaugural year as a Rolex Series Tournament.

Shane Lowry just wasn’t the Northern Irishman in question. He’s flying the Northern Ireland flag this week in the absence of Rory McIlroy, who’s missing Abu Dhabi for only the second time since he turned professional in 2008.

Lowry is used to operating in Rory McIlroy’s shadow; he’s been doing it since they played junior golf together. Wednesday, he played the sort of golf in the first round McIlroy is capable of to match the course record of 62, 10 under, and leap into the first-round lead.

The 31-year-old Lowry hadn’t played competitively since the ISPS Handa Melbourne World Cup of Golf in November. He showed no signs of rust in matching the 62 Henrik Stenson returned in 2006. Ten birdies and no bogeys helped Lowry to a three-shot lead over 2010 Open Champion Louis Oosthuizen and fellow South African Richard Sterne, and Frenchmen Mike Lorenzo-Vera and 2014 Abu Dhabi champion Pablo Larrazabal.

“I’m obviously over the moon; it equals the best score I’ve ever shot,” said Lowry, who had a 62 while winning the 2009 Irish Open as an amateur.

“I knew that, as well, and I said it to my caddie coming down the last ‘A birdie here would be the best score I’ve ever shot’, to which obviously he said, ‘Well then why don’t you just go for it’.

“I left the putt short but I felt like I hit a decent putt, it was just a bit more into the grain than I felt, and yeah, obviously I’m very chuffed.

“I had quite a lot of time off since the World Cup, but put in a decent bit of work the last two weeks over here in Dubai and I’ve just gone out with not much expectation but knew I was playing OK and yeah, everything clicked.”

Defending champion Tommy Fleetwood, who is trying to win the tournament for the third year in a row, is tied for 22nd in a group that includes Dustin Johnson on 3 under. World number two Brooks Koepka is joint 11th on 5-under.

The post Working mom Cristie Kerr continues to be straight shooter on course, TV appeared first on New York Daily News.

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Cristie Kerr appeared on Golf Channel as a guest analyst last weekend, offering insight during the Golf Central pregame show leading into the Sony Open. Kerr isn’t thinking of retiring anytime soon, but the idea of doing a little television work when she’s not playing seemed appealing.

Kerr, a 41-year-old mother of two, has always been one of the best quotes in the women’s game. She’s not afraid to offer an opinion and rarely delivers one of those bland, programmed responses that have become the norm.

Want a straight answer? Ask C.K.

“I’m not going to put a limit on it,” said Kerr, when asked if her timeline for playing had changed now that she’s a mother of two boys.

Kerr pointed to Juli Inkster, who at 58 still plays a limited LPGA schedule while doing TV work for Fox.

One thing that will change in 2019: Kerr’s family won’t be joining her on the road nearly as often. With son Mason now in pre-kindergarten three days a week and Griffin making his way into the world Aug. 28, it has become too much for the entire family to pack up and travel the world.

Husband Erik Stevens will stay home most of the year, bringing the boys out maybe a half a dozen times in 2019. They’ll at least start the year together, with Erik taking Mason to Sea World on Tuesday and the Magic Kingdom on Wednesday.

Both boys will be at daycare on competition days as Kerr begins her 23rd season on tour.

The 2018 felt overwhelming at times with a new baby, a number of moving parts to her wine business and equipment changes.

“I couldn’t really manage all of it,” she said. “Like my husband says, ‘Life gets in the way.’ ”

This year would be a success, Kerr said, if she found more consistency. Last October she went back to her old coach, Bryan Lebedevitch. She’s working again with mental coach Joe Parent of Zen Golf. Her body feels healthy again. Something might ache in the morning, she said, but generally works itself out.

“Just pouring everything I have into however many years I have,” she said.
