The Fringe, Back9Network’s newest daily feature, keeps you up-to-date on the best stories happening in golf, social media and pop culture. 

It’s Getting Personal 

On Wednesday, Tiger Woods joined Donald Trump, as well as Ivanka, Eric and Donald Trump Jr., for the Tiger Woods Villa ribbon cutting ceremony. The Villa is one of eight deluxe guest rooms that have been built at Trump International Doral Miami. Each one will be named after the world’s most influential golfers, which include Bobby Jones, Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Sam Snead, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Phil Mickelson. 

Rory McIlroy, who’s playing in this week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship, gets to experience all that the deluxe villas have to offer and more. “I’m staying in this Tiger Woods Villa here and there’s pictures all over my room of him,” McIlroy said in his press conference Wednesday. “I sent him a message last night: ‘Can’t get away from you here, I can’t go to the bathroom without looking at you.’” As if Woods’ intimidation factor isn’t enough in the normal setting, McIlroy gets to stare at Woods while he’s brushing his teeth every morning. All the luck to you Rors!


Quiet Please

Justin Rose posted the following video on his Instagram account prior to Wednesday’s practice round with the description “LIVE on the 18th #Doral.” 

There’s one thing going on in that video that you just cannot ignore – Trump’s helicopter is just yards away and that thing is definitely not idle. Hey Justin, you forgot a hashtag: #QuietPlease.


Going Once, Going Twice 

A lot of us in the Northeast are staring out the window desperately wondering when all this snow will melt away and when the warm weather will move in. This may also mean that you’re most likely reviewing and searching for some of the hottest gear that 2014 has to offer. Well, one thing that is hot and is being given away is Paula Creamer’s custom TaylorMade putter.  

 
Make sure you “favorite” that tweet, folks! 


Throwback Thursday 

Today’s Throwback Thursday post is dedicated to the 2013 FedEx Cup Champion, Henrik Stenson. If you haven’t seen this video from the 2009 World Golf Championships event at Doral then you’re in for a real eye-opener. 

Apparently, Ian Poulter hasn’t forgotten about Stenson’s strip shot either: 


In Case You Missed It

If you haven’t realized it yet, fast cars and Trump’s helicopter have been among the most talked about off-the-field stories of the week so far at Trump National. That trend continued Wednesday as PGA Tour players took a trip to the Homestead Speedway to take part in the Cadillac V-Series Challenge for Charity. If you think these guys aren’t adrenaline junkies, you’re second-guessing yourself. Read the full story here.

At the 2014 WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, Victor Dubuisson made two of the best recovery shots we’ve ever seen. Now, Dubuisson has a special commemorative wedge in his bag, personalized from Titleist. View the photos here.
