Sprint improves its unlimited data plan to play with the big boys
Sprint improves its unlimited data plan to play with the big boys

Earlier this week, Verizon announced an all-new unlimited data plan that included HD video streaming and mobile tethering. Not to be outdone, T-Mobile followed suite and added those features to its flagship unlimited plan. Today, Sprint announced that it's adding HD video streaming and mobile hotspot to its unlimited data plan, which I am sure is a total coincidence and in no way an attempt to keep up with the competition. The press release doesn't make clear if this is a long-term change to Sprint's plan, or a temporary promotion. The release says that customers will "automatically get a free upgrade to HD-quality video plus 10GB mobile hotspot per line," which doesn't really...

Golf-Rumford, Foster lead by a stroke in Super 6 event in Perth

Australian Brett Rumford and England's Mark Foster each carded a six-under-par 66 to take a share of the lead in the opening round at the inaugural World Super 6 tournament in Perth on Thursday. Twenty-one players were within two shots of the leaders at Perth's Lake Karrinyup Country Club in the unique event, tri-sanctioned by the PGA Tour of Australasia, Asian Tour and European Tour. Perth-native Rumford lost his European Tour playing card last year but began the 2017 campaign by finishing fifth at the Australian PGA Championship and was looking to continue his good form at home.

Golf-Woods cancels news conference due to bad back

Tiger Woods was supposed to hold a news conference on Wednesday at the Genesis Open but canceled the event after doctors said the former world number one should limit all activities while he battles back spasms. Woods pulled out of Feb. 16-19 Genesis Open last week but the 14-times major champion was still planning to be at Riviera this week as the tournament's host. "After receiving daily treatment the last several days on his on-going back spasms, Tiger Woods has again been advised by doctors to limit all activities and will not hold a press conference Wednesday.

Golf-Quiet revolution brews at Super 6 event in Perth

Golf has clung slavishly to its centuries-old traditions and long ignored growing calls for reform but the ancient sport will be nudged gently towards modernity at the inaugural World Super 6 tournament in Australia this week. The European Tour co-sanctioned event at Perth's Lake Karrinyup Country Club will ditch convention by deciding Sunday's winner in a final day matchplay shootout after three rounds of regular strokeplay. It also counted as a necessary experiment for a game that was struggling to lure a new generation of participants and fans in golf's mature markets, according to the Australian PGA Tour.

Spieth wins emphatically by four shots at Pebble Beach

(Reuters) - Jordan Spieth focused on "boring golf" and shrugged off an unexpected birdie drought in the final round as he clinched his ninth PGA Tour victory, by four shots, at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am in California on Sunday. "It's unbelievable," Spieth, 23, told CBS Sports after becoming the first player since Tiger Woods to win nine times on the PGA Tour before the age of 24. "Today I hit 17 greens, it was kind of a dream round for ball-striking when you are leading by a bunch and I finally got one (a birdie putt) to go on 17.

Golf-Spieth seizes six-shot lead at Pebble Beach

(Adds details, quotes) * World number six one-putts 13 of his 18 holes * Leads Snedeker by six heading into final round Feb 11 (Reuters) - Jordan Spieth putted superbly on Pebble Beach's bumpy, rain-softened greens to surge six strokes clear after the third round of the weather-hit AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Saturday. Joint leader when the fog-delayed second round was completed earlier in the day, the world number six fired a sparkling seven-under-par 65 on the picturesque Pebble Beach Golf Links, one of three venues being used for this week's event.

Golf-Swing coach Leadbetter runs rule over golfers Trump and Abe

By Mark Lamport-Stokes (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump will play a round of golf with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in Florida on Saturday, a leisurely match-up that should prove to be "a very good game" based on their respective golfing skills, says esteemed swing coach David Leadbetter. The two world leaders are expected to play at Trump International Golf Club near Trump's Mar-a-Lago retreat in Palm Beach where they will be staying for the weekend along with their wives. Trump, who is the more athletic and experienced golfer of the two, has said that the experience should be "a great thing ... you get to know somebody better on a golf course than you...

Golf-Willett on target for first win since U.S. Masters triumph

Englishman Danny Willett moved into position to claim a first title since his dramatic U.S. Masters win last April after the Briton forged a three-stroke lead going into Sunday's final round at the Maybank Championship in Kuala Lumpur. The 29-year-old has struggled to replicate the play that led him to a first major triumph at Augusta National but Willett has shone this week at the Saujana Golf and Country Club and a five-under-par third round 67 took him to 16-under on Saturday. After offsetting a single bogey with six birdies, Willett sits three clear of American David Lipsky and four ahead of Frenchman Alexander Levy in the co-sanctioned European and Asian Tour event.

Golf-Tiger drops out of two PGA Tour events due to back spasms

(Fixes typo in first paragraph) Feb 10 (Reuters) - Tiger Woods will not compete in two scheduled upcoming PGA Tour events due to nagging back spasms that forced him to pull out of an event in Dubai last week, the former world number one said on Friday. Woods, who has struggled mightily in his much-anticipated comeback this year following back surgery, said on his website he will be unable to compete in the Feb. 16-19 Genesis Open in California and the following week's Honda Classic in Florida. "My doctors have advised me not to play the next two weeks, to continue my treatment and to let my back calm down," said Woods.

Abe hopes to avoid landing in rough in golf outing with Trump

U.S. President Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Abe will form a twosome for their round of golf on Saturday, presumably at the Trump International Golf Club near his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.

Golf-Furyk tweaks Ryder Cup selection process, puts emphasis on form

U.S. Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk tweaked the selection criteria for the 2018 Ryder Cup against Europe by placing a premium on in-form players, the PGA of America said on Wednesday. A points system used to determine eight automatic qualifiers has remained largely intact but a change has been made in how many points are awarded during the Ryder Cup year as well as the timing of the captain's picks. Furyk will make three of his captain's picks following the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship, the second of four FedExCup playoff events in 2018, which is scheduled to finish on Sept. 3, and his final selection will be announced a week later after the BMW Championship.

Golf-I will never feel great again, says Woods

Former world number one Tiger Woods has accepted that he will "never feel great" again after suffering a number of back and knee injuries in recent years.

World number one Ko confirms Gilchrist as new coach

Women's world number one Lydia Ko confirmed Gary Gilchrist as her new coach on Wednesday and said the South African had already "ripped apart" her swing ahead of her season debut in Australia next week. New Zealander Ko said she had been working with Gilchrist for about a month, having parted ways with British swing guru David Leadbetter in December after a three-year association. Gilchrist is already working with two of Ko's main rivals in Thai world number two Ariya Jutanugarn and Chinese world number four Shanshan Feng.

Olympic-2020 golf venue postpones decision on ending ban on women

The Kasumigaseki Country Club, which is set to host golf for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, failed to reach a decision about ending a ban on women as full members on Tuesday, with the head of its board of directors calling the situation "a nuisance." The board meeting followed calls to shift the tournament from the private club in Saitama prefecture because of the rule, which allows women to play Monday through Saturday but bars them from becoming full members and from playing on Sundays. The Tokyo Olympic organising committee sent a letter to the club last week appealing for it to reconsider the policy. Board chairman Kiichi Kimura later told reporters that the club was basically in the...

By Mark Lamport-Stokes (Reuters) - Tiger Woods' withdrawal from last week's Dubai Desert Classic due to back spasms has cast a lengthening shadow over his return to competition, leaving at least one expert to conclude his brilliant career is now drawing to a premature close. While manager Mark Steinberg downplayed the withdrawal, saying Woods had a "back spasm", sports injury expert Selene Parekh says the player "should be very concerned" that he had to make an early departure from the Middle East event. Comfortably the greatest player of his generation and arguably the best of all time, Woods was a creaking shadow of his former self in Dubai, struggling to a...

(Reuters) - Tiger Woods will take the next step on his comeback this week at the Dubai Desert Classic, a step that just a few months ago he was not at all sure he would be able to take. It was more than brutal," Woods said in a video interview released in conjunction with the Desert Classic event. "Because there were times when I physically didn't know if I could get out of bed." In the 15 months before Woods next played in a tournament - the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas in December 2016 - he slid to 666th in the world rankings, havig enjoyed a total of 683 weeks as number one.

Shaking off rust was a priority for Tiger Woods in his first PGA Tour event in 17 months and the former world number one was encouraged by his improvement over two rounds, despite missing the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open on Friday. While some critics feel that Woods still needs to make technical adjustments to his swing after being sidelined by back pain and spine surgery, the 41-year-old dwelt on the positives after shooting a level-par 72 in the second round at Torrey Pines outside San Diego. "I hit it much better today," Woods told reporters after posting a four-over total of 148 to miss the cut by four strokes.

Tiger Woods' much anticipated return to the PGA Tour after an absence of 17 months ended prematurely on Friday with a missed cut at the Farmers Insurance Open outside San Diego. After struggling to a four-over 76 with a rusty display in the opening round on the more difficult South Course at Torrey Pines, Woods followed up with an even 72 on the revamped North layout to finish four shots outside the projected cutline.

Contrasting fortunes for Torrey Pines fans Rose and Woods

(Reuters) - Justin Rose and Tiger Woods share a great affection for Torrey Pines but their results were very different in Southern California on Thursday when they ended the opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open 11 shots apart. Woods, who has won this PGA Tour event seven times along with a U.S. Open title at the same spectacular venue in 2008, struggled to a four-over 76 while Olympic champion Rose soared into a one-stroke lead after firing a 65. While huge galleries watched a rusty Woods compete on the rain-softened South Course in his first full tournament field in 17 months, Rose provided the fireworks as he eagled two of the four par-fives on the friendlier North layout.

Day in no hurry to join golfer's 59 club

World number one Jason Day says he is in no hurry to join the elite band of golfers to break 60 -- and insists winning titles will remain his priority. An electrifying start to the year on the PGA Tour has seen two players duck under 60 already, with Justin Thomas posting only the seventh 59 in tour history at the Sony Open before Adam Hadwin emulated the feat last week at La Quinta in California. Day however said carding a 59 was not a high career priority as he heads into this week's Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines Golf Course outside San Diego.
