langer rocks 2

For the past seven years Bernhard Langer has dominated the Champions Tour with machine like consistency and marksman like accuracy.  He’s performed like The Terminator on a mission to own the Champions Tour. I can almost hear his thought process, or “software program” if you buy the Terminator analogy: Must make birdies. Must crush competition. Must win! And on most occasions The Berninator does just that, crushes them. But every now and then he misses one…it’s rare but it does… Continue Reading

I have to be honest: I didn’t see much of Jimmy Walker’s redemptive defense of his Sony Open title. I like many sports fans was captivated by NFL Championship Sunday. But unlike the Green Bay Packers, Walker didn’t take a bite of the apple and choke away another victory. Sorry Seattle fans the Seahawks didn’t win that game, the Packers lost it, choked it away. But Walker proved that he had what it takes to bounce back from his own… Continue Reading
