Letters From Tiger, Boxes Of Cash, And Holly's Latest Photo Shoot: The Loop : Golf Digest — Welcome to another edition of The Grind, where we are still waiting to receive an angry letter from Tiger Woods.

Tiger's letter, Lydia's box of cash and Holly Sonders' latest "golf" photos in a turkey-stuffed edition of The Grind:

Lydia Ko's $1.5 Million Precision: The Loop : Golf Digest — The LPGA's youngest multi-millionaire doesn't win by overpowering a golf course with raw speed. Instead of a sledgehammer, Lydia Ko uses a scalpel. At the season-ending CME Group Tour Championship, the 17-year-old from New Zealand wore out the field with her relentless fairways-and-greens approach, winning a three-way, four-hole playoff to collect both the $500,000 first prize and $1 million bonus for taking the season-long points race.

Rory McIlroy's Goals For 2015? 'Green Jacket': The Loop : Golf Digest — Stories of interest you might have missed... "As he picked up the European money list trophy for the second time in three seasons on Sunday, Rory McIlroy had two words to say when asked for his goals for 2015: 'Green Jacket,'" this Reuters story by Matt Smith says.

The Loop : Golf Digest — For most American sports fans, Thanksgiving typically consists of oversize helpings of turkey and football, the consumption of the latter frequently determining when the former actually gets served. Now golf fans will have another offering to fill up their plate/throw off their dinner schedule.

The Loop : Golf Digest — Social media exploded on Sunday night thanks to Odell Beckham Jr.'s circus catch in the second quarter of the Giants-Cowboys game.

Today's tenuous golf connection: Odell Beckham Jr.'s circus catch and... Ben Hogan?

The Loop : Golf Digest — Rory McIlroy has always been labeled a streaky golfer. The difference now is that instead of alternating between good and bad performances he only seems to fluctuate between good and great. McIlroy, 25, wrapped up his season on the European Tour with a T-2 at the DP World Tour Championship.

Rory McIlroy had ONE bad week of golf all year and it wasn't even all his fault...

The Loop : Golf Digest — It never hurts in golf's quest for relevance during football season for Tiger Woods to make headlines, as he did twice last week. He clearly has no intention to go away quietly.

Golf's off-season too short? After this week (see Tiger, McIlroy, Lydia Ko), one might argue it's too long:

The Loop : Golf Digest — Michael Jordan recently said President Barack Obama wouldn't be in his dream golf foursome . Another one of sport's biggest names, though, seemed to enjoy his time on the course with the most powerful man in the world.

Wearable Technology — Nothing has popularized the idea of wearable tech more than the GoPro camera. The lightweight, durable camera fits in the palm of your hand, has available chest or head mounts and records video at 120 frames per second at 4K resolution. In other words, it's perfect for swing sequences and documenting a round.
