If you’re going to talk the talk you’ve got to walk the walk…as they say. Patrick Reed talks the talk. Patrick Reed walks the walk.

Reed managed two birdies, a bogey and an amazing eagle over the last four holes and while he was walking his walk Jimmy… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods in Phoenix? Not a Surprise

tiger phoenix

We all know that dozens of sportswriters make Tiger Woods their number one story any chance they can.

According to Eamon Lynch and Coleman McDowell Tiger will return to competition at the 2015 Waste Management Open in Phoenix.  They cite “sources” claiming that Woods has reserved his… Continue Reading

Ted Bishop: I Got a Raw Deal

Former PGA president Ted Bishop should be working on getting his 45 hole Legends Golf Club ready for next season. If all went as planned at last fall’s Ryder Cup he would have been riding a high for a very long time. But the ass whipping taken by the Americans at the hands of those pesky Europeans screwed up Ted’s plans. Then came the Tweet that brought down the President. After spending the day with Nick Faldo at the Greenbrier… Continue Reading

Geoff Ogilvy tees off on the 18th hole.

Friday the PGA Tour will start the 2015 part of their wraparound season. They can call it whatever they want but this is the start of the season. I don’t care what they call it. The Hyundai Tournament of Champions will feature 34 of last season’s champions. Headlined by Bubba Watson, this inaugural 2015 event will certainly be a fine diversion to all of those golfers with a bit of cabin fever. Watching golf from Hawaii in the middle of… Continue Reading

Pebble Beach

The good folks over at Golf Digest have published their yearly listing of America’s 100 Greatest Courses. It’s actually their Golden Anniversary version and while there is a change at the top most of the courses will be very familiar to golf fans. Of course another name for this listing might as well be the Courses You’ll Never Get to Play. Augusta National has supplanted Pine Valley from the top spot and they’ll probably swap the top two slots until… Continue Reading
