Back 9 Report: A tough week for playoffs


On this week's Back 9 Report, hosts Fred Altvater and Carlos Torres talk through the golf headlines of the week that was.

This week they recap the Zurich Classic and the nearly unwatchable playoff on the LPGA Tour with Haru Nomura and Cristie Kerr.

Other topics include:

  • The National Golf Foundation reports golf numbers are growing thanks to TopGolf.
  • Paddy and Sergio kiss and make up at Rory's wedding.
  • The PGA Tour hands out a "slow play" penalty. Ian Poulter gets good news from the PGA Tour.
  • The USGA and The R&A are worried about player's yardage books for green reading.
