Tiger’s Niece Plays With the Pros

by Jeff Skinner Back in May when Cheyenne Woods accepted an invitation to play in The Wegman’s LPGA we offered some words of caution.  Do you follow Tiger’s example or Michelle Wie’s? The name “Woods” carries a lot of weight in the world of golf. It is said that Tiger Woods is the most recognized athlete in the world and that he is the driving force on the PGA Tour. That may be the case but the name Woods seems… Continue Reading

PGA Pro’s Earn Their Money on Wednesday

The rain stopped up at the Travelers and the Pro-am is well under way.  This is where the tour players really earn their paychecks.  They have to participate in the Wednesday Pro-am or they cannot play in the tournament.  They get to roam the course with three amateur teammates and post a score for low man per team on each hole.  It can be a daunting task.  The first amateur to hit in Paul Goydos’s group hit his tee ball so far… Continue Reading

Lucas Glover at The Travelers Championship

by Jeff Skinner   I am up in Connecticut today at the Travelers Championship and of course, just like at the US Open, it is raining again.  The whirlwind week for US Open champ, Lucas Glover continues.  He is scheduled to tee off in the Pro-Am at 12:50pm.  I wonder what the amateur partners thought last week when they saw they were playing with Glover.  I bet their attitude changed big time on Monday night.  They go from playing with… Continue Reading
