4. Tyson Alexander tied for second place at the Cadence Bank Houston Open is his best finish in just eight career PGA Tour starts. He earned his PGA Tour card via the Korn Ferry Tour regular season top 25.

1. When Bernhard Langer captured the TimberTech championship on the PGA Tour Champions last week was not only his 44th career win on the 50+ Tour, but the 11th since he turned 60. Only 34 players in league history have won 11 or more times in their senior careers.

2. Due to an odd number of players in the season-ending Charles Schwab Championship, John Huston came out first on Thursday, alone. And it was clear he didn’t care. Known for being a fast player, Huston played his 18-hole course in 2 hours and 17 minutes. He also shot 65.

3. With the announcement of the Grange Golf Club in Adelaide, Australia, as the site of a LIV Golf League event next April, LIV Golf is expected to announce later that an event in Singapore will take place the following week at Sentosa Golf Club. LIV Golf has yet to announce its season-opening event, scheduled for February.

4. The DP World Tour End of Season Event takes place this week in Dubai: the DP World Tour Championship. Rory McIlroy has a chance to become the second player to win the FedEx Cup title and Race to Dubai in the same year. Henrik Stenson scored the double in 2013.
