In what might be the strangest news in golf this year, a police bomb squad was called to Pebble Beach Golf Links on Monday, according to the UPI.
A beachcomber reported early Sunday he had found what looked like two pipe-bombs taped together at the base of a 40-foot cliff near the Monterey, Calif., course's 9th hole, Bay City News reported Monday.Tiger on next win: Whenever it happens, it happens says he isn't overly concerned
The Monterey County Sheriff's Office called in a bomb squad, which examined the suspicious-looking device and rendered it safe.
Investigators said they could not determine for sure what it was, but it appeared to be configured in a way similar to explosives, KSBW-TV, Salinas, reported.
Authorities said the incident remained under investigation.
I'm looking forward to playing again this week at Doral, where I've had good success in the past. It's one of the tougher courses we play, especially when the wind blows. There are some good risk-and-reward holes, so you can get it going if your game is sharp.

"I just want to start winning some regular PGA Tour events. I've only won twice and I want to get the win tally up a little bit. I have had a lot of conversations with Graeme about course management. That is why I like playing with him; his game is so much different than mine. If I can take a little bit of his game and imbed it in my game, it would help. I am a little too instinctive."Tweet of the Day @McIlroyRory @TheChristinaKim
