NOTES: The LPGA travels to China this week for the start of a 6-week stay in Asia. First up is the Reignwood LPGA Classic in Beijing, where the top two players in the world are in the field - Stacy Lewis and Inbee Park. The field for this event consists of players from both the LPGA and China LPGA.

Tiger Woods is trying out some new courses.

Eight years ago as the Ryder Cup qualifying was ending, 10 of the top 20 players in the U.S. standings were either in the same group or in a group with captain Tom Lehman. It looked as if it was rigged, though the PGA Tour promised it was done by computer and merely a coincidence.

Paul Azinger is not ruling out a return as Captain America in the Ryder Cup.

Humana is dropping out as title sponsor of the PGA Tour's former Bob Hope Classic after the January tournament at PGA West and La Quinta Country Club.
