If you want to hit a drive 400 yards, Dean Burmester has the answer: Carry it 320 yards, land it on a cart path, then have it carom off rocks. As he shows in Round 2 of the Volvo China Open, it's really not that hard.

AVONDALE, La. (AP) — The first team event on the PGA Tour in 36 years has produced the first penalty for slow play since 1995. PGA Tour officials say Miguel Angel Carballo and Brian Campbell were penalized one shot on the 14th hole of the opening round at the Zurich Classic for their second bad time. They opened with a 74 in foursomes. They were on the clock when Carballo went over his allotted time on the 12th hole. Then, Campbell had a bad time on the 14th hole. Typically, a player receives a warning after the first bad time and a one-shot penalty after his second. Because they were a team in foursomes, however, rules specify that a "player" includes his partners. Until Thursday, the last time

Chris Stroud knew something was going on with his ball when he lined up a birdie putt from just off the green at No. 8 Thursday at the Zurich Classic. The ball was on a downslope and appeared to be moving ever so slightly, then it magically rolled onto the green. Stroud made the birdie putt from the new position, and he teamed with Brian Stuard for a 4-under 68.

AVONDALE, La. – Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer can’t get enough of this team concept. First, they shot a 6-under 66 in alternate shot to share the lead at the Zurich Classic. And on Thursday night they headed to the New Orleans Saints’ facility to watch how the team prepares to make the 11th pick in the NFL Draft. “It’ll be really cool just kind of sitting in the back and watching that process take shape,” Spieth said. “I’ve always wondered what it’s like.” It’s Palmer’s second time in the Draft war room, after attending a few years ago with his caddie, James Edmondson. “They’re actually watching Shot Tracker more than anything,” Palmer said. “You’d be surprised. They’re watching what we’re doing

''I wrote them quite a while back and asked for one, and they politely called me and declined,'' Stricker said. He didn't think that was enough to warrant a special exemption, but his brother-in-law and agent, Mario Tiziani, told him it was worth a shot. He's just trying to figure out the best path. Stricker turned 50 in February and has been splitting time on both tours. He has top-10s in his three starts on the PGA Tour Champions, including a runner-up finish to Tom Lehman in Arizona. He tied for 16th in the Masters earlier this month, his best finish in four starts on the PGA Tour. If nothing else, Stricker has entered U.S. Open sectional qualifying in Tennessee. That's where he played a year

AVONDALE, La. – The social-media controversy surrounding Ben Crane’s putting-contest debt is now over. PGA Tour veteran Tom Gillis took to Twitter on Wednesday to call out Crane for allegedly owing his “friend" $6,000 for a lost putting contest in Phoenix. More players got dragged into the mix, with Charley Hoffman posting on Instagram that it was Daniel Berger who had won the contest and been stiffed out of the cash. Crane denied comment on Wednesday afternoon, but he said after his first round Thursday that “it’s all good.” “One thing was said and another thing was said. It was miscommunicated,” Crane said. “But we’re all good. We had a great conversation about it.” Crane said that he has yet

This week is going to be a fun (and different) week on the PGA Tour. Over four days at the Zurich Classic, 80 two-man teams will play two rounds of alternate shot (first round and third round) and two rounds of best ball (second round and fourth round) to determine a winner. The 80 teams will be cut to 35 after Friday. Winners will split FedEx Cup points, get a two-year exemption and into the Players Championship, PGA Championship and Tournament of Champions next January in Hawaii. They will neither receive OWGR points nor an exemption into the 2018 Masters. Here is a look at all 80 teams (there are some interesting ones) and when they tee off on Thursday in Round 1. 8 a.m. -- Spencer Levin
