Thanks for visiting!This “condensed” major championship season continues its breakneck pace this week as the best field of the year tees it up at the PGA Championship at Baltustrol. But first there’s one more piece of business to close out from Henrik Stenson’s win at the Open Championship. Here are the final results for the Links Life Golf Crew Open Championship Picks. G. Rennie was… Continue Reading
Jhonattan Vegas came from five shots back of the lead to earn his second PGA Tour victory in a surprising win at the RBC Canadian Open. Third round leader Brandt Snedeker couldn’t hold on tho his one shot lead as Vegas got off to a hot start with five straight birdies starting at the second hole and finished just as hot with three straight birdies for a final round 64. He last won in 2011 but has found his game… Continue Reading
Team USA didn’t start out well on Thursday at the UL International Crown but they finished with a bang as they won three of their four singles matches to claim the title. Stacy Lewis, Gerina Pillar and Cristie Kerr all won their singles with only Lexi Thompson missing the chance for a Sunday sweep. The ladies of the USA earned 13 points to edge South Korea by a single point. Here are the highlights. And here is their press conference.
Try this drill and you may be putting like Jordan Spieth.
As we all still nurse our Open Championship hangovers the women of the golf world start a streak of important tournaments. Thursday 32 of the worlds best will tee it up in the UL International Crown in a eight team format, that’s something the Olympics should have tried…a team format. Then a quick trip across to England where they will compete in the Ricoh Women’s British Open at Woburn Golf & Country Club in Milton Keynes, England. After a weeks… Continue Reading
Like most golf fans I still can’t get enough of the 145th Open Championship. Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson’s 2016 version of the Duel in the Sun was as good as it gets. “Epic” and “classic” are the words being used to describe their final day showdown and rightly so. I even caught some of the replay today on the Golf Channel…it’s OK you can admit that you all did too. Here’s a highlight reel from British TV. It’s worth… Continue Reading
1. The Open not only gave us a new major champion in Henrik Stenson but also a new cult hero. Andrew “Beef” Johnston with his furry, wild looking beard, healthy appetite and likable personality was also a winner at Royal Troon. The fans and the media loved him. He was just fun to watch. 2. The par three Postage Stamp doesn’t need anymore publicity, it’s a legendary hole. And watching the best golfers in the world need all their skills… Continue Reading
As Henrik and Phil were going at it yesterday many of us referenced 1977 at Turnberry when Nicklaus and Watson went head to head in the classic Duel in the Sun. I stated that I thought Stenson and Mickelson had outplayed Watson and Nicklaus by the sheer brilliance of their play. And I am not alone. The Golden Bear himself thinks so too. Nicklaus, who rarely watches a full round of golf, released these comments on Twitter praising Stenson and… Continue Reading
1. Henrik Stenson is a fitting and deserved Champion Golfer of the Year. A 63 on Sunday at The OPEN puts him in the history books and probably makes him an official Scotsman now. 2. He hit so many clutch shots its difficult to say what the most important one was. But his scramble from the rough on sixteen to scratch out a birdie when Mickelson was looking at an eagle putt was crucial. He avoided what could have been… Continue Reading
Philly Mick and Hammering Hank teed off today in a defacto match play scenario, winner takes all, for the Claret Jug, the Gold Medal and the appellation “ Champion Golfer of the Year”. None of the other seventy nine golfers playing the links at Royal Troon today had a reasonable chance to win this championship so we had, in effect a tournament within the championship. Either Phil on Henrik would be crowned king of the golfing world, for this week… Continue Reading
