Raise your hand if you teed it up Tiger Woods for the first time, lit up the Twittersphere and put together the best stretch of golf of your promising career. All in the last two weeks.

Michael Kim takes 4-shot lead at weather-delayed John Deere Classic

Michael Kim took a four-shot lead at the John Deere Classic in the Quad Cities, which was suspended twice because of weather concerns. Kim, who is winless in 84 career PGA Tour starts, was 16 under through 35 holes, with the second round still to be completed.

Bomar has won more than 100 club tournaments, taken four swings at PGA Tour qualifying school, played on pro circuits in Europe and Asia and attempted to qualify for selected Champions Tour events.

Dahmen has serious goals while enjoying Canadian Tour

It was 45 degrees, raining and windy when Joel Dahmen teed off Thursday morning at the Times Colonist Island Savings Open, the first event on the Canadian Tour. The conditions didn’t faze Dahmen, a two-time state prep champion from Clarkston and winner of the 2007 Washington State Amateur. He’s a year removed from his last chemotherapy treatment for testicular cancer and regular check-ups show he’s cancer-free. His improving game resulted in a third-place finish on the money list on the Gateway Tour’s winter series in Arizona.
