- Rory's Choice
World #1 continues to dominate the golf headlines as Rory McIlroy will part ways with equipment company Acushnet at the end of 2012. McIlroy has played Titleist clubs for his entire pro career.
- In the Race
McIlroy's bid to win both money titles takes center stage in the WGC-HSBC Champions where he is not teeing it up. Peter Hanson beat Rory last week and he will play in China this week. He trails McIlroy by more than 850,000 euros.
- 3-Peat in Play
Hideki Matsuyama is seeking a third straight win in the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship. This year's event begins tonight in Thailand's Amata Spring Country Club. Remember, the champion earns an invitation to the 2013 Masters.
- Sandy's Damage
Photos continue to come in from Northeast golf courses damaged from Hurricane Sandy. This is from Oak Hill Country Club in Rochester, NY which is the host of the 2013 PGA Championship. The course experienced downed trees and flooding but says cleanup efforts are already underway.
