PAUL AZINGER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Someone's major gain is often another's loss

Paul Azinger leaned against the railing around the 18th green at Muirfield, where 13 players have won the silver claret jug since the British Open first came to a links course known as the fairest of them all. It sure didn't feel that way to Azinger. Muirfield is where Nick Faldo won his first major championship by making 18 pars in the final round in 1987. It would not have...

Augusta's 16th hole aquatic tradition

Paul Azinger was playing a practice round with Mark Calcavecchia and Ken Green in 1988 when the trio arrived at the 16th, a 170-yard, par-3 over a pond that stretches from the tee to a severely sloping green.

Belly putter creator regrets likely demise

If not for Paul Azinger picking up a long putter that belonged to a short man, there might not be such a fuss over belly putters. The USGA and R&A are close to announcing their position on long putters that are anchored to the body. That they have pledged to make an announcement by the end of the year has most believing a ban is imminent. If that's the case, the guy who...

Medinah, IL -- He couldnt hide the nervous worry.
