HONOLULU (AP) — Steve Stricker came to Hawaii for two weeks of work, just like the old days, but with a twist. Instead of starting at the winners-only field at Kapalua and then going over to the Sony Open, he started at the Sony Open and heads to the winners-only field on the Big Island for the PGA Tour Champions opener.
The question is how long he stays with players his own age.
It's a question Vijay Singh and Davis Love III have contemplated over the last few years.

Americans finally found the recipe for continuity in the Ryder Cup and Presidents Cup.
The key now is to avoid a closed shop.
Jim Furyk is the Ryder Cup captain for next year's matches in Paris, and it will be the fourth straight team event that he is assigned a radio and a cart. He was an assistant captain the previous three cups in South Korea, Hazeltine and Liberty National.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — President Donald Trump didn't just present the Presidents Cup trophy to the winning American team on Sunday. He dedicated it to the people who have endured hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Rosters for the Presidents Cup, to be played Sept. 28-Oct. 1 at Liberty National Golf Club (c-captain's pick):
Kevin Kisner began to appreciate the value of playing in the Presidents Cup two months before the matches even started.
All because of a text message.
He was at the Bridgestone Invitational last month when he received a group text sent to players who were in position to make the U.S. team. The idea was to make everyone feel like a team, whether the exchange of messages was motivational or simply amusing.
Phil Mickelson was selected as a captain pick for the second straight Presidents Cup, extending a remarkable streak of playing on 23 consecutive U.S. teams.
Anirban Lahiri of India will play for the second time, and it might be just as meaningful.
U.S. captain Steve Stricker used his two picks Wednesday on Mickelson and Charley Hoffman, who finished a fraction of a point out of the top 10 automatic qualifiers in the final week. It will be the first team competition for the 40-year-old Hoffman.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Steve Stricker had to clean out his locker and head home early after missing the cut in the PGA Championship at Hazeltine. That was in 2009. And it was on his mind Friday at Quail Hollow when he was outside the cut line and running out of holes.
"It was on my mind today to play this weekend," he said. "I wanted to be around this weekend."
BLAINE, Minnesota (AP) — Paul Goydos birdied the first playoff hole Sunday to win the 3M Championship over Gene Sauers.

"I wrote them quite a while back and asked for one, and they politely called me and declined," Stricker said.
BILOXI, Miss. (AP) — Miguel Angel Jimenez made a birdie putt on the first playoff hole to beat Gene Sauers and win his second consecutive Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic on Sunday.

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Tom Lehman took advantage of senior newcomer Steve Stricker's late mistakes Sunday to win the Tucson Conquistadores Classic for his 10th PGA Tour Champions victory.
Two strokes behind Stricker with three holes to play, Lehman closed with two birdies and a par for a 7-under 66 and a one-stroke victory over playing partner Stricker. The 58-year-old Lehman is coming off arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.
