He had just moved into a two shot lead at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and was about to tee off on the drive-able par four seventeenth hole. The way he has been closing out tournaments lately a two stroke lead with two to play looked like money in the bank. But that’s… Continue Reading
Rickie Fowler and Butch Harmon show us how to commit to the short shot over sand.
And the season begins! An unseasonably warm spell in the Hudson Valley this week had all us golf starved hackers chomping at the bit for a few holes of real golf. With zero snow on the ground and temperatures nearing 60 all that was needed was a course to play. And thank god there was a little nine holer just minutes from my house that stays open all winter. As long as there is no snow they’re open and this… Continue Reading
1. I watched a lot of golf this week and one of the strangest things I saw was Jordan Spieth’s fill in caddie. His usual bag man, Mike Greller was home nursing a sore ankle. So his agent, Jay Dansi,the guy who signed him up to play Singapore was pressed into service as his caddie. It was hot, humid and the heat index was over 100. A bit of irony surrounded Dansi as he humped that bag around all week.… Continue Reading
Who doesn’t love Jordan Spieth? The Golden Child has become must watch golf whenever and wherever he tees it up. But Spieth, who in his short but amazing career has displayed a maturity well beyond his years may have fallen victim to his fame.

And you… Continue Reading
Usually on Monday morning I’ll cruise through the all the golf sites to get the inside story from the weekend. But this morning, quite frankly my head is spinning. What a crazy golf weekend. And it’s not over as the boys of the PGA Tour still have to complete the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. It was a smorgasbord of golf and we got to see golf 24 hours a day as the tournaments circled the globe. It… Continue Reading
Jordan Spieth seems to be the best putter in the world right now, no matter where he plays. It doesn’t matter if it’s in Hawaii, the mainland or Singapore, Jordan rules with the flatstick. But he wasn’t born with that silky smooth putting stroke. He has refined it with plenty of practice. Try this drill to putt like The Golden Child and you’ll be on your way to dropping more putts.
Good news for every golf fan: Paul Azinger is coming back to work. According to reports, first reported by Jaime Diaz, and he never gets it wrong, Azinger will be the new analyst for Fox Sports replacing the recently departed Greg Norman. “Zinger” is a voice dearly missed. He has a resume that few analysts can match: he is actually a winning former Ryder Cup Captain. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg that is Azinger. Azinger is a… Continue Reading
In 2013 I was at the PGA Championship at Oak Hill Country Club. My son was living nearby at the time and we grabbed some tickets to watch the best golfers in the world try for “Glory’s last Shot.” Friday morning the course was getting soaked by an unrelenting rain that tested both golfers and fans. We toughed it out through the mud and the rain and by the afternoon the sun was bright and the skies were blue. While… Continue Reading
During the 2015 golf season there was plenty of discussion of a New Big 3 that hearkened back to the glory days of the original Big 3, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. The “New Big 3” was comprised of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy. All were major winners and ranked one to three in the World Golf Rankings. Thrown into the mix was the very popular Rickie Fowler who many said should constitute a New Big… Continue Reading
