Three months ago under murky skies at San Francisco’s TPC Harding Park, Collin Morikawa found himself in contention for a victory in a major championship.

The course was familiar to him owing to his days as a star golfer for the University of California, but being in contention at a major championship was not.

There was a discussion between the transplanted Las Vegas resident and caddie J.J. Jakovac about whether to go for the green or lay up short as the PGA Championship neared what seemed a dramatic conclusion. They were standing on the 16th tee box, 332 yards from a flag stick they could not see.

A decision was made and agreed upon, after which Morikawa was handed the biggest club in his bag.

THWAP!

(Reuters) – If the Masters is a tradition unlike any other, a unique autumn showcase of golf’s most eagerly anticipated annual gathering will likely linger in the memory long after the Green Jacket donned by Tiger Woods last year is draped over the winner.

Played in late March or early April since its inception in 1934, the Masters was postponed this year until Nov. 12-15 after American sport shut down in March amid a widespread national novel coronavirus outbreak.

With no spectators on site for the first time, an eerie silence is expected with just a faint breeze whispering through the pines in place of the gallery roars that customarily reverberate across the entire course.

Usually there are eagle roars, hole-in-one roars, Tiger roars, a proverbial bush telegraph, all slightly different to the attuned ears of veteran fans and players alike.

“As a player, (I) always knew

Van Pelt came to ESPN from Golf Channel, where he was an anchor and reporter from 1994-2000. He still feeds his thirst for the game by serving as the main host of ESPN’s golf coverage, including the Masters and the PGA Championship, and he hosts SportsCenter reports and specials from the events.

Van Pelt joined ESPN in early 2001 as the network’s lead professional golf reporter and with the Masters nearly upon us, he made time to speak to Golfweek for a riveting conversation heavy on the Masters with a side of Tiger, DeChambeau and even one heckuva Scott Hoch story.

Q: Let’s get right to it. Who’s your Masters pick and why?

A: I’m going to

Brookfield Infrastructure (NYSE:BIP)(NYSE:BIPC) demonstrated its business model’s durability once again during the third quarter as it delivered solid results despite the economic disruption caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. While most of its business units performed well, its focus on expanding its data infrastructure platform paid dividends during the period. That trend should continue as the company closed another data deal — along with one in the energy sector — which, when combined with easing economic and foreign exchange headwinds, should help drive its results meaningfully higher over the next several quarters.

A Masters badge is one of the most coveted tickets in sports, not just because you get to roam the grounds of Augusta National, but because you get to roam the fabled gift shop of Augusta National. What good’s a trip to the Masters if you can’t tell everyone you were there?

Augusta National doesn’t release figures on how much merchandise it sells each year, but if you figure that virtually every person who walks through the club’s gates drops at least three figures, and sometimes much more, you can start to get an idea of how much we’re talking here. The next SEC football game or golf outing in the Southeast where someone’s not wearing Masters gear will be the first one.

Before business school Cindy Lai spent her career in precious metals, dentistry, and aerospace. The thread that connected each role? Data analytics.

The school has a strong reputation, she says, and the lure of studying in Manhattan and learning from established professors who also teach at NYU and Columbia was a big pull factor. 

With her mind on a career in data, how does the program set students up for their future
