David Feherty is one of the most recognized faces in golf. And his “Feherty” gig on the Golf Channel is always funny and entertaining. But last night’s show was something special.  Feherty sat down with friend and colleague, Peter Oosterhuis.  “Oosty” was forced to leave the crew at CBS due to early onset Alzheimer’s. It’s not a pretty disease and Feherty and his old buddy spent an hour  reminiscing about their old times together but the overriding theme of the… Continue Reading

USGA Still Taking Heat for DJ’s Penalty

U.S. Open - Final Round

It seems like everyone in the golf world had an opinion on the Dustin Johnson/USGA rules snafu except DJ himself. Yes, he said during and after the penalty was assessed, in the scoring room no less, that he didn’t cause the ball to move but that was it. As we all carry on about his misfortune and the USGA’s fumble DJ is laying low, nowhere to be seen. Good for him. He’s handling the aftermath as classy as he did… Continue Reading

Saturday Swing Tip: Dustin Johnson’s Major Winning Wedge Game

Saturday-Swing-Tip-4-250x175

Dustin Johnson has made his bones on letting his “big dawg eat.”  But truth be told the 2016 U.S.Open Champion earns plenty of cash with his wedge game.  As we saw at Oakmont (when the USGA wasn’t screwing up his deal) he can really do some damage with his short clubs.  In fact he leads the PGA Tour in approaches from 50-125 yards and is second from 150-175.  That’s a serious short game! Check out his wedge game tips.

Oakmont’s USGA Rules Decision…What If?

After back to back controversial U.S. Opens the USGA should probably get down on their collective knees and thank the golf gods. Maybe they could sacrifice a few blue blazers and some neckties while they are at it. Because when all was said and done they got lucky, very lucky. Last year at Chambers Bay they withstood criticism about the course and its barely there greens but the exciting finish with Jordan Spieth winning saved the day, except for Dustin… Continue Reading

us open 18 flag

So much great stuff happened at the U.S. Open, its a sin that on Sunday so much of the rhetoric was focused on the USGA’s poor handling of the rules issue. They blew it plain and simple. Dustin Johnson won in an heroic fashion and let’s hope the Open is remembered for that. Here’s some ramblings on what I liked and disliked about the week at Oakmont. 1. The Oakmont course itself is very impressive. Walking those challenging holes and… Continue Reading
