Price wants Korean for Presidents Cup; will Bae be available?

By Will GrayAugust 4, 2015, 10:29 pm

AKRON, Ohio – International Presidents Cup captain Nick Price hopes to have a South Korean-born player on his roster when the country hosts the biennial matches for the first time later this month, but he’s still unsure if his roster options will include Sangmoon Bae.

Bae has won twice on the PGA Tour, most recently at the 2014 Frys.com Open, but he has been ordered to return to South Korea to complete a mandatory two-year military service. Bae has announced plans to play out the rest of the 2014-15 season before returning to Korea.

While he enters this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at No. 31 in the FedEx Cup points list, Bae has missed five of his last seven cuts and last recorded a top-25 finish at the Northern Trust Open. As a result, he has slipped to No. 25 in the Presidents Cup standings, with only the top 10 qualifying for the matches at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea in Incheon.

Price said he would like to consider Bae for a potential pick, especially since the 29-year-old has won Korean Tour events on the host course each of the last two years, but it remains to be seen if Bae will be available for the Oct. 8-11 matches.

“He loves the golf course, but his form the last six weeks, eight weeks has not been very good,” Price said. “I’m hoping that he plays well the next couple weeks, the next four or five weeks. I still haven’t spoken to him as to when he has to go and start his service.”

Should Price look past Bae, he still has a pair of Korean-born players on the cusp of qualifying. Danny Lee, who was born in Korea but grew up in New Zealand, won The Greenbrier Classic last month and now sits at No. 13 in the standings, while Byeong-Hun An captured the European Tour’s BMW PGA Championship in May and is now at No. 11.

“The guy is a hell of a player. He’s a very, very strong player,” Price said of An. “As far as I’m concerned, it would be sad if we don’t get a Korean on the team. It really would. But that’s a decision we’re going to have to make Sept. 8.”

Rose's Saturday 64 matches Carnoustie Open record

By Ryan LavnerJuly 21, 2018, 1:03 pm

CARNOUSTIE, Scotland – Justin Rose needed to sink a 14-foot putt on the final hole Friday just to make the cut on the number at The Open.

Freewheeling when he came to the course Saturday, Rose tied the lowest score ever recorded in an Open at Carnoustie.

Entering the weekend nine shots off the lead, the world No. 3 carded a bogey-free, 7-under 64 to at least make things interesting. It won’t be known for several hours how many shots Rose will be behind, but his back-nine 30 gives him an opportunity, if the wind blows 25 mph Sunday as forecast, to challenge the leaders.

After all, Paul Lawrie was 10 shots back entering the final round here in 1999.

“I think the birdie on 18 last night freed me up, and I’m just very happy to be out on this golf course and not down the road somewhere else this morning,” said Rose, who is at 4-under 209. “So that might have been part of the shift in mindset today. I had nothing to lose from that point of view.”

Rose’s 64 matched Steve Stricker and Richard Green’s record score at Carnoustie (2007).

It also was Rose’s career-low round in a major.
