Registration is open for the three-day event that begins Oct. 14. Participants must register as a twosome or foursome, with each round costing $60 per person.

The San Diego Padres partnered with Callaway Golf last year to turn Petco Park into a golf course. This is what that course looked like:

There will be a cash purse of $1,000 awarded to the top three scores and a $100 cash prize awarded for any hole-in-one.

The Braves closed down Turner Field Sunday with a win over the Detroit Tigers. The celebration included a number of Hall of Fame Braves participating in on-field festivities.

The Braves will move to SunTrust Park in Cobb County for the 2017 season next April.

Fans pay tribute to Arnold Palmer at Ryder Cup

As the Ryder Cup begins Friday, golf fans continue to pay tribute to the memory of Arnold Palmer, who died Sunday in Pittsburgh at age 87.

At Hazeltine National Golf Course, two giant posters outside the merchandise tent give fans a chance to write a message to “The King.”

The PGA of America put up the posters as a way to give fans a way to interact with the legend.

The posters measure 12 feet by 12 feet. One shows a young Palmer following through on his golf swing, while the other one shows him reading a putt. The posters display Palmer’s distinctive signature and invites fans to “Please Pay Tribute to Mr. Palmer.”

The left side of the poster says “In Memory, 1929-2016.”

Wednesday afternoon, spectators were signing the posters and writing messages to their idol. Other fans snapped photos with their cellphones.

Palmer competed in six Ryder Cups and was a non-playing captain in the 1975 event. He was a playing member in 1961, ’63 (when was the playing captain), ’65, ’67, ’71 and ’73.

He won 62 PGA Tour events and seven major titles during his professional career.

Fan backs up Ryders Cup trash talk by making putt PGA stars couldn’t

A fan at the Ryder Cup won a spot in the Heckler’s Hall of Fame by nailing a putt Rory McIlroy and Andy Sullivan could not during a practice round Thursday.

A video shows the heckler making jokes as he practices his putt before hitting the ball.

The crowd erupts with cheers and applause as the ball goes in the hole and the heckler pumps his fists in the air.

This is enough to get even Allen Iverson excited about practice.

Whatever he does with that $100, it probably won’t be spent on a drink anywhere golfers hang out.

Tiger Woods plans his return to the PGA

Tiger Woods has named the tournament where he hopes to begin a comeback.

>> Read more trending stories  

The former No. 1 golfer in the world hasn't played a PGA tournament in over a year.

But he wrote Wednesday that his goal is to play in the Safeway Open in mid-October, which marks the beginning of the next PGA season.

He also said he aims to play in a tournament in November and another in December.

Woods has been trying to find his game again after undergoing multiple back surgeries in 2015.

"My rehabilitation is to the point where I'm comfortable making plans, but I still have work to do," he wrote on his website.

Woods' return could be welcome news for the PGA, which has faced the challenge of replacing the sport's most recognizable face.

Major tournaments have staggered in ratings when Woods was absent.

Coincidentally, the last PGA tournament in which Woods played in August 2015 got a huge ratings spike when he briefly led the field.

Woods is currently ranked No. 711 in the world.

Rory McIlroy drops out of Olympics over Zika virus concerns

The world's biggest sports competition is going to be without one of golf's biggest names.

>> Read more trending stories  

Rory McIlroy, ranked No. 4 in the overall world standings, has decided not to compete in the Olympic Games because of concerns over the Zika virus.

McIlroy said in a statement, "Even though the risk of infection from the Zika virus is considered low, it is a risk nonetheless and a risk I am unwilling to take." 

McIlroy's decision is bad news for the sport of golf, which is making its return to the Olympics after a 112-year absence, and for Ireland, the country for which McIlroy had pledged to play.

The Zika virus is spread through mosquito bites and is known to cause birth defects. Brazil has been facing a Zika outbreak since May 2015.

It's unclear how risky it is to visit Rio de Janeiro this August. More than 100 distinguished physicians and scientists have called for the Olympic Games to be moved.

Just four months ago, the World Health Organization said Zika was "spreading explosively." But the organization has also maintained the risk for the Olympics is very low. A Brazilian official cited a University of Cambridge study that found of the 500,000 foreign tourists traveling to the games, one will get infected.

McIlroy may have company. Rickie Fowler, the world's No. 6-ranked golfer, is reportedly also questioning if he'll play in the games.
