Even though the U.S. Open is in the books the hangover still lingers. Especially on this weekend as we are once again treated to the Fox Sports coverage of the USGA’s U.S. Senior Open.  Joe Buck and Greg Norman may have received some knocks for their inaugural Open (Buck acted like a rookie, Norman said nothing as DJ lost it) but the two are back at it again as Tom Watson tries for his first Senior Open.  Norman who likes… Continue Reading

The afterglow of Jordan Spieth’s U.S. Open win continues as it has been all Spieth all the time everywhere you look. I first caught him on The Golf Channel today and then the buzz got louder when he posted a shot of his Masters Green Jacket lying next to the U.S. Open Trophy on Instagram. Oh it must be nice to be Jordan. CNN Money called him “The Next Endorsement Superstar” and claimed “Even if he doesn’t win the next… Continue Reading

Chambers Bay: More Fun Than Faults

bleachers 18 chambers bay

Fill in the blank. The 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay was _______. The answer certainly depends on who is responding. Some players might say it was a travesty. Some called it all tricked up. While the most popular cry was an indictment of the greens and some players were ready to indict Mike Davis who was the main man responsible for the controversial setup. If a ticket buying fan was filling in the blank the response might have been… Continue Reading

As Dustin Johnson licks his wounds and Jordan Spieth celebrates his U.S. Open win it’s time to celebrate another champion: the winner of the Links Life Golf U.S.Open Pick a Winner Competition.  With so many big names missing the cut and others making late final round charges up the leaderboard the competition was fierce and the margin of victory the narrowest in the history of the contest.

Ten Things I Think…U.S. Open Style

spieth trophy

1.  All the golf world can relax and rejoice that we have Jordan Spieth for the next few decades. Will he win a bunch more majors? Maybe but even if he doesn’t he’s a joy to watch and listen to.  2.  Is there is a golfer that is more fun to watch than Spieth? Yes, he’s great and skilled and all that but I love the chatter with his caddie, the emotional up and downs and the way he talks… Continue Reading

Phil Mickelson’s Grand Slam Quest Falls Short

phil usopen r4 cham

Phil Mickelson’s 2015 chase for the career grand slam came to a end today, a painful end. Phil was out of contention from the first tee ball today, really the first tee ball yesterday, and as it usually goes when he has no chance it became a tortuous march to the last hole for him. Unfortunately it got worse for Phil as he stumbled to an ugly double bogey seven on eighteen (which included a whiff from the rough) to… Continue Reading

For all the crying about the greens at Chambers Bay the greens seemed to play a bit better today. Of course there will be a differences from early morning to late afternoon but there isn’t a course on this planet that can avoid that. But all the players play the same course and whatever happened to “you play the course as you found it.” So Chambers Bay isn’t Augusta National and that’s a good thing.
