This is not Goodbye

With sadness I am announcing that ATLSportsHQ.com will be decommissioned in the coming days. 

 

With years of hard work and dedication from many writers and contributors, the ATLSportsHQ.com URL brought a new era of sports coverage in Atlanta sports.

Unfortunately the momentum was unsustainable. Thank you to the dozens of talented writers that have lend a hand to making this site more successful than I ever imagined possible.

From the starting crew of Nate, Garrett, Malik, Daric and others, to the late coming saviors of Bob, Andrew, Reeves and many many more, and E for giving us a shot on air radio; I’d like to thank you for making the dream of having a sports website possible.

The ATLSportsHQ brand is going nowhere.

Tiger Woods Wins PGA Tour Championship At East Lake Golf Club In Atlanta.

As Tiger Woods tapped in for par on the 18th hole Sunday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta and raised his arms you could feel five long years of emotion finally releasing from his body. After being stuck on win 79 for five years and dealing with both personal and health problems, that par putt secured win number 80 and The Tour Championship worth $1.6 million dollars. Tiger finished the tournament -11 and lead the tournament from start to finish posting round scores of 65-68-65-71. Tiger’s popularity was never more evident than holes 16-18 where he had to be escorted through the crowds by Atlanta police just to make it to the next tee box as spectators gathered by the hundreds to catch a glimpse of him on his way to the title. Next up for Tiger will be The Ryder Cup to be played this week in Paris,France.

The PGA Tour’s final tournament of the year The PGA Tour Championship is set to be held September 20th-23rd at East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta. Since 2007 the Tour Championship has been the final event of the four tournament FedEx Cup playoff and eligibility is determined by being in the top 30 in FedEx Cup points amassed during the PGA Season. Since 2004 East Lake Golf Course has been the exclusive home for the PGA Tour Championship. The winner of this years event will receive a $2 million dollar prize and the FedEx Cup champion will take down a hefty $10 Million dollar prize.

 

Although the top 30 golfers in the world will be at this tournament the event will be headlined by a returning Tiger Woods appearing in the event for the first time since 2013 and currently in 20th place in FedEx Cup standings. As a fan favorite you can expect that the galleries around him will be packed all four days of the event.

 

Other notables to tee off in the event will be FedEx Cup point leader Bryson DeChambeau, Georgia’s own Bubba Watson, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, and international star Rory McIlroy.

 

Daily grounds tickets will be between $25-$70 and gates open at 9:00 A.M. All parking for tournament week is free at two locations (there is no on-site parking) located at Georgia State Stadium Thursday and Friday and Cellairis Amphitheatre Saturday and Sunday. A free shuttle will be provided for transportation to East Lake Golf Club.
