If you’re new to our course, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!The Monday Morning Hangover from The PLAYERS we all have comes with a big smile and it’s just not on Rickie Fowler’s face. Sunday at TPC Sawgrass gave us all we could handle. For pure big name recognition the leaderboard lacked the big headliner but was so jammed we knew something had to happen. But we have seen this before: players fail to… Continue Reading

Rickie Fowler Dominates the 17th at Sawgrass

rickie players

I feel for those golf fans that were unable to watch the end of The PLAYERS as it was the best finish of the year.  Some are calling it the best PLAYERS ever while others can’t recall a tournament that had such a dramatic finish. Rickie Fowler showed that he is indeed a world class player and for sure a world class guy. Check out how he simply dominated the most famous par three in golf, the island green 17th… Continue Reading

Ted Bishop At It Again

ted-bishop-pga-america_t640

And file this in the “He just doesn’t get it” category. Ted Bishop, the not so recently deposed president of the PGA of America lets loose with another troublesome Tweet. You would think Ted would have learned after his controversial Tweet calling Ian Poulter a “lil girl” got him bounced from his presidency and banned for life from anything of consequence at the PGA. But no, he couldn’t leave things be. After Rickie Fowler’s dramatic win at The PLAYERS good… Continue Reading

The PLAYERS Primed for a Crazy Finish

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Two

The stage is set for a wild Sunday at The PLAYERS with a leaderboard so crowded it’s anyone’s guess who will claim this victory. Chris Kirk has a one shot lead over the most tightly packed leaderboard of the season. There are thirty players within five shots of the lead and plenty more right behind them. But this PLAYERS has a different look from previous years. Kirk, himself no household name leads a group of lesser known players with a… Continue Reading

Spieth Says No Rivalry…Yet

spieth_gc_pix_050815_0

This is one of the reasons that Jordan Spieth is so likable. Listen to this kid, the number two golfer in the world, talk himself down. He says he’s not on Rory McIlroy’s level and maybe right now that is true. He says there is no rivalry between him and Rory but if the number two golfer in the world isn’t a rival to the number one golfer in the world then who is? Humility, it’s a word rarely used… Continue Reading

Chip Shots from The PLAYERS

na 15 players

Jordan Spieth misses the cut. Boy Wonder had a great run while it lasted but it was bound to end sometime. The mano y mano, Rory vs Jordan Death Match will have to wait. Phil Mickelson now has seven missed cuts at The PLAYERS to just three top tens. TPC Sawgrass is one tough course and it had Phil talking to himself,” I was thinking to myself as I was walking around, I can’t believe I’ve actually won here.” Next… Continue Reading

Tiger’s Next? Place Your Bets

One of the many amazing things about today’s technology is that you can place a bet on just about anything. And even more amazing is the fact that you don’t have to leave your house. I was able to put some cash on the line for last week’s Kentucky Derby (I bought plenty of oats) right from my couch. Isn’t America grand! Anyway, for all of you that worship at all things Tiger here’s a chance to make some cash… Continue Reading

The Dye-abolical 17th at Sawgrass

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Two

The PGA Tour’s flagship event, The PLAYERS Championship always generates plenty of buzz. It’s always one of the best fields of the season and played on a course that generates as much controversy as Miguel Angel Jimenez vs. Keegan Bradley, maybe more. No, definitely more. TPC Sawgrass has been both praised and reviled and love it or hate it Pete Dye’s creation changed the way golf courses and golf course architects were perceived. Dye’s Sawgrass was dug out from swampland… Continue Reading

Good Stuff from The PLAYERS Championship

duval players

The PGA Tour likes to play up the fact that it gives tens of millions of dollars to charity each year. Tim Finchem and his cronies would like us all to think that the tour isn’t just a business, technically a non-profit business that consists of a bunch of one percenters flying around the country playing golf for a living and counting their millions. The truth is the PGA Tour does enable millions of dollars to go to good, effective… Continue Reading

Rory McIlroy Wins WGC Match Play

rory match play

Rory McIlroy earned his tenth PGA Tour win and second World Golf Championship with his 4 & 2 win over Gary Woodland.  Rory made a habit of getting behind in his early matches and then staging a late comeback for the win.  But he needed no such theatrics against Woodlawn as he cruised to victory. Rory references his Ryder Cup win over Rickie Fowler saying it gave him confidence in match play.  The Ryder Cup…it is never out of the… Continue Reading
