Investment bank Citi decided Monday to keep its sponsorship of Justin Thomas, condemning the anti-gay slur he muttered and requiring him to donate a ''meaningful portion'' of his deal as part of an active role in LGBTQ causes. Thomas, the No. 3 player in the world whose 13 victories at age 27 include a major championship, missed a 4-foot par putt in the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua on Jan. 9 when television audio caught him muttering the slur under his breath. Thomas apologized after the third and final rounds.

Love, who has played in the biennial team match-play competition six times in his career, was an assistant captain in the 2013, 2015 and 2017 editions and holds a 16-8-4 record in 28 matches. The 56-year-old becomes the ninth captain of the team since the competition was established in 1994 and takes over from Tiger Woods who led the side to an eighth straight title in 2019 at the Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Australia.

Tyrrell Hatton found it surreal when he looked at golf's world ranking and saw himself at a career-high No. 5, above the likes of Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka. A golfer once best known for his loud and often self-deprecating outbursts on the course is now better regarded as a proven winner on the European Tour. The latest big victory in the 29-year-old Hatton's burgeoning career came in Abu Dhabi last week, when he outplayed McIlroy in the final round to win by four shots and claim a sixth title on the European Tour.

Rory McIlroy believes that Tyrrell Hatton not only has “everything it takes� to win a major but that the Englishman can emerge as one of Europe’s strike weapons in this year’s Ryder Cup. McIlroy witnessed Hatton’s current majesty at first hand on Sunday when being demolished in a head-to-head shootout in Abu Dhabi and so replaced him as the UK’s top player in the rankings. “A 66 with no bogeys in those conditions was really, really impressive,� McIlroy said. “It’s just been a continuation for Tyrrell, really. He’s been really impressive in the last year or so. What is it? Four wins in 20 starts. And they’ve all been big events. Turkey, Wentworth and now Abu Dhabi, all Rolex Series events boasting world-class fields and winning his first title at Bay Hill at the Arnold Palmer Invitation. That’s a huge event in America. Tyrrell’s played some great stuff and deserves his place in the world’s top five.� Since winning the Turkish Airlines Open in November 2019, Hatton has marched from 48th in the world rankings up to fifth, behind Dustin Johnson, Jon Rahm, Just Thomas and Collin Morikawa. It has been an astonishing 14 months, made all the more remarkable by the fact he underwent wrist surgery during this period. The only negative has been his form in the majors. Hatton, 29, missed the cut in all three of the majors held in 2021, leading some to question if he has what it takes at the highest level. McIlroy plainly feels that is absurd. “Of course, he has what it takes to win a major,� McIlroy said. “He’s proved that in this last year or so. Like all of us, he just needs it to be his big week, because he has the tools for the job both physically and mentally. It’s good news for British golf and European golf. He did well on his Ryder Cup debut in 2018, but he is an even better player now and can and will be a huge asset for Padraig’s [captain Padraig Harrington] team in September.� While Hatton will play here in this week's Dubai Desert Classic. McIlroy is taking the rather longer trip to San Diego for the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. The 31-year-old was due to pick up his wife [Erica] and daughter [Poppy] in New York, before travelling home to Florida and from there flying to California on Tuesday. And after this third place — his best finish since the resumption after the lockdown in June — he feels he is game is finally returning to the shape that took him to world No 1 in February. “Coming back post lockdown I just wasn't prepared for the emptiness of behind-closed-doors tournaments,� he said. “It’s taken me a while to get the hang of it, but I saw some encouraging signs at the back end of the year. So I go to Torrey hopeful I can get into contention again. I’m playing seven weeks out of eight up to The Players, which is most I’ve ever done to start a year. I’ve been itching to get back out here.�
