by Jeff Skinner The first week of December brings the familiar sights and sounds that we have come to expect this time of year. No, it’s not Christmas carols, Charlie Brown Christmas or visions of sugarplums dancing in our heads. It’s golf of course and plenty of it. Amazingly this week gives us not one tournament, not two, not even three, but four golf tournaments. It seems more like a week in June then is does a week in December. … Continue Reading
by Jeff Skinner Take a look at Brian Morgan’s shots of Trump International Golf Links or as The Donald calls it “the greatest golf course in the world.” It looks like the course is growing in just fine and there are certainly some dramatic vistas. It is scheduled to open next July but I’m not sure it will be ready…I didn’t see any shots of Trump’s trademark waterfall. Link to Geoff Shackelford story.
by Jeff Skinner Robert Allenby’s week at The Presidents Cup was about as bad as bad can get. He went 0-4-0 and was the only player on either team not to score any points.

It doesn’t seem that long ago that Woods was claiming majors like they were his and his only. No athlete in history has fallen as far as Woods has. He went from icon to pariah quicker than you can say Augusta National. It is still difficult to believe that Woods carried on… Continue Reading
by Jeff Skinner This week marks two years since Tiger Woods left his house for that post Thanksgiving ride that ended with him hitting the fire hydrant. From that moment on Tiger’s world has never been the same. But time heals all wounds, as they say, even Tiger’s. These past two weeks have been good for Tiger. His golf game is very close to being where he wants it. He finished third at the Australian Open and this week at… Continue Reading
The Picture of the Day had to include these Aussie fanatics and their newest member.
by Jeff Skinner The victory by the American Presidents Cup Team was a real team effort. Each player earned some points but there certainly were some Studs and Duds in Australia. The big winner was the Royal Melbourne Golf Course which was the toughest stud of all. The Stud of the Week has to go to Jim Furyk and his 5-0 record. He may have had an off regular season but he was money this week. He was 3-0 with… Continue Reading
