Rory McIlroy to play in British Masters

Rory McIlroy confirmed he’ll play in this year’s British Masters at Close House in Newcastle, England.

It will mark his first appearance at the tournament since 2008.

The Northern Irishman has been troubled by a rib injury since January, but said he’d hoped to finish his year at the British Masters and then the Dunhill Links at St. Andrews, which he’ll play the following week.

“Teeing it up next week gives me one more chance to end 2017 on a high as well,” McIlroy said. “If I can sign off the year with a win or two in Newcastle and then St. Andrews, I would take so many positives into my six-week recovery period when I am going to reset mentally and physically and concentrate on getting myself in the right shape for next year.”

The British Masters is set to run from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1.

Student Debt Undermining Millennial Homeownership

Posted To: MND NewsWire

A new study is providing more evidence that student debt is disrupting the lifecycle of the housing market. The survey, conducted jointly by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and the non-profit American Student Assistance (ASA), found that an overwhelming majority of millennials with student debt currently do not own a home. They blame this debt for what they typically believe will be a seven-year delay in homeownership. And it isn’t just homeownership that is suffering. The survey also revealed that student debt is holding back millennials from financial decisions and personal milestones. These include adequately saving for retirement, changing careers, continuing their education, marrying and having children. Despite being in their prime homebuying years, only 20 percent of the survey…(read more)

Projected FedEx Cup top 30 after Day 3 of the BMW Championship

Only one day remains for the field at Conway Farms Golf Club to get inside the top 30 of the FedEx Cup standings and earn a berth in the Tour Championship next week.

Phil Mickelson posted a 2-under 69 to inch closer to the cutline, but will need a big performance Sunday to force his way into East Lake. Joining him on the wrong side of the cutoff are Louis Oosthuizen, who fell seven spots to 31st, and Jason Dufner, who was 1-over par Saturday.

Here’s a look at those hovering in or just outside the top 30 heading into Sunday’s final round:

Projected Rank Player Official Rank (+/- spots) Projected points
25 Patrick Cantlay 41 (+16) 1396
26 Russell Henley 23 (-3) 1390
27 Sergio Garcia 34 (+7) 1365
28 Brendan Steele 27 (-1) 1358
29 Henrik Stenson 26 (-3) 1351
30 Gary Woodland 29 (-1) 1348
31 Jason Dufner 25 (-6) 1324
32 Louis Ooshuizen 24 (-8) 1319
33 Phil Mickelson 36 (+3) 1316
34 Xander Schauffele 32 (-2) 1286
35 Chez Reavie 46 (+11) 1281

Among other notables, Justin Rose is projected to finish 12th, while leader Marc Leishman is on track to rank fourth heading into next week’s finale.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Rory McIlroy’s season is essentially a formality in 51st place, while Tony Finau and Billy Horschel are other prominent figures on the outside looking in.

Projected Rank Player Official Rank (+/- spots) Projected points
12 Justin Rose 17 (+5) 2074
4 Marc Leishman 7 (+3) 4084
60 Rory McIlroy 51 (-9) 909
41 Tony Finau 39 (-2) 1137
45 Billy Horschel 38 (-7) 1087

Projected FedEx Cup top 30 after Day 2 of the BMW Championship

The field continues to jockey for position in the FedEx Cup standings, with the top 30 spots in the playoffs earning a trip to the Tour Championship next week in Atlanta.

Hudson Swafford, Mackenzie Hughes, and Francesco Molinari have made the biggest jumps this week through two rounds, while Louis Oosthuizen, Henrik Stenson, and Jason Dufner have all hurt their chances of qualifying for East Lake with their disappointing play.

Here’s a look at the projected FedEx Cup playoff standings after the second round at Conway Farms Golf Club:

Projected rank Player Official rank (+/- spots) Projected points
25 Hudson Swafford 33 (+8) 1506
26 Webb Simpson 21 (-5) 1467
27 Francesco Molinari 42 (+15) 1448
28 Patrick Reed 22 (-6) 1430
29 Mackenzie Hughes 31 (+2) 1422
30 Russell Henley 23 (-7) 1417
31 Henrik Stenson 26 (-5) 1343
32 Jason Dufner 25 (-7) 1340
33 Phil Mickelson 36 (+3) 1322
34 Louis Oosthuizen 24 (-10) 1317
35 Sergio Garcia 34 (-1) 1304

Among the notables, Jason Day remains in good shape to qualify, backing up his Thursday 64 with an entertaining second-round 65. Patrick Cantlay jumped a projected 20 spots Friday, after opening the tournament with rounds of 67-65 in just his 12th event of the season.

Meanwhile, Rory McIlroy fired a 2-under-par 69 in the second round, but his season will likely conclude Sunday. McIlroy needed a fifth-place showing or better to move on, but sits in a tie for 50th.

Projected rank Player Official rank (+/- spots) Projected points
5 Rickie Fowler 6 (+1) 3197
8 Jason Day 28 (+20) 2221
21 Patrick Cantlay 41 (+20) 1587
37 Stewart Cink 57 (+20) 1263
56 Zach Johnson 54 (-2) 928
60 Rory McIlroy 51 (-9) 912

MBS RECAP: Bonds Tune Out Competing Voices to End Flat

Posted To: MBS Commentary

Between the overnight session and domestic trading hours, the following voices tried to get inside the head of bond markets: A North Korean missile launch asked bonds to rally from “safe haven” demand. They sorta did at first. Hawkish comments from a British central banker asked global bond yields to move higher. US Treasuries sorta complied Weaker Retail Sales data opened the door for bonds to rally in the morning. They began to walk through. The 9:30am NYSE tradeflows and stronger inflation expectations in the 10am Sentiment data said “not so fast” to the bond rally. Bonds heeded the warning And finally, an ongoing stock rally provided justification for bonds to weaken all day long, but they did nothing of the sort. Despite all of the above, 10yr yields hit the 3pm closing…(read more)

Ben Crane DQ'd in weird rules incident on Web.com Tour

Of all the crazy rules stories in this season of golf, Ben Crane may have topped the list this week on the Web.com Tour.

Crane was assessed two separate four-stroke penalties in the first round of the Albertsons Boise Open on Thursday, due to carrying a pair of non-conforming clubs in his bag.

The 41-year-old realized on the 11th hole – his second hole of the day – that his driver had a training sticker on it, which allows launch monitors to collect data, and is illegal per Rule 4-1. Crane notified officials on the hole, resulting in the first four-stroke penalty.

Three holes later, Crane noticed his 6-iron had the same decal on, and was slapped with an additional four-shot penalty by the rules committee.

Then, before the start of the second round Friday at Hillcrest Country Club, Crane notified rules officials that he was actually aware of the sticker on the 6-iron at the 11th, whereas he reported it at the 14th. Since Crane hadn’t removed the 6-iron from his bag – like he did the driver at the 11th – he was disqualified from the tournament

“He came back this morning and said he knew he had the 6-iron. He’s got to make a declaration that that club is out of play,” Jim Duncan, vice president of rules and competition, told the Golf Channel. “Either to a member of the committee, which he could’ve told (rules official) Andrew Miller, or to one of his fellow playing competitors. When he didn’t make that declaration, at the point he knew he had to take that club out of play, that’s ultimately a disqualification penalty.”
