By Bailey MosierJune 15, 2014, 11:00 pm

Lydia Ko's quest to win her first major championship won't begin until Thursday, but she's already won a title at Pinehurst - the title of most excited person EVER to be at the U.S. Open.

Ko arrived at Pinehurst on Saturday and has acted less like the No. 3 women's player in the world and more like the No. 1 men's fan in the world.

On Twitter and Instagram, Ko chronicled her weekend of watching and meeting some of the greatest players in the men's game. Take a look at the timeline:

Saturday, Ko tweeted: 

She then posted this to Instagram with the caption, "Had to see Phil Mickelson play! #MyFave #NoCamerasPlease"

Also on Saturday, Ko posted this photo with the caption, "Also got to take a picture Hunter Mahan! #OMGOMGOMG"

 She was back at Pinehurst on Sunday, where she tweeted:

 

The fun didn't stop there. She posted this: "(Got) to meet and hug Sergio Garcia today! Also got to walk inside the ropes and watch him play!"

Back watching Lefty on Sunday, Ko captioned this photo: "Also got to watch my favorite player Phil Mickelson! @callawaygolf #TeamCallaway"

Then, apparently Keegan Bradley was being a jokester. Ko wrote: "Photo with Ron Sirak :) and Keegan Bradley photo bombed us :p"

"I think my dad is excited!" she wrote on Instagram. YOUR DAD is excited?

 And then on Twitter...

 

 And lastly, in case there was any confusion:

Woods' 2018 schedule coming into focus ... or is it?

By Golf Channel DigitalDecember 16, 2017, 5:46 pm

Two weeks after his successful return to competition at the Hero World Challenge, Tiger Woods’ 2018 schedule may be coming into focus.

Golfweek reported on Saturday that Woods hopes to play the Genesis Open in February according to an unidentified source with “direct knowledge of the situation.”

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg declined to confirm the 14-time major champion would play the event and told GolfChannel.com that Woods – who underwent fusion surgery to his lower back in April – is still formulating his ’18 schedule.

Woods’ foundation is the host organization for the Genesis Open and the event supports the Tiger Woods Learning Center in Anaheim, Calif.

The Genesis Open would be Woods’ first start on the PGA Tour since he missed the cut last January at the Farmers Insurance Open.
