Tiger Woods has found himself in an unfamiliar place this Friday evening. Instead of flying home in his private jet he actually made the cut this week and even shares the lead at the Wyndham Championship. Woods has been searching for his golf game since 2013 when he won five times on the PGA Tour and earned Player of the Year honors. Since then he’s win-less and has played more like a 10 handicap than a 14 time major champion.… Continue Reading

Spieth Moves to World No.1

PGA: PGA Championship - Third Round

Well, “barely missed”… Continue Reading

At the 97th PGA Championship Jason Day proved to be too much for the All-American Kid Jordan Spieth who was trying to complete the All-American Slam. Let the puns begin: it was Jason’s Day. While the Australian Day could be tabbed as the Wonder from Down Under because of his nationality he could also wear that moniker for the fact that he has been so close, so often in majors we were wondering if he was ever going to finally… Continue Reading

Mother Nature held sway Friday afternoon at the Straits course at Whistling Straits in Cheese Land driving golfers and spectators to shelter, softening the course with a deluge of rain and tearing down TV towers, TV studio sets and scoreboards with 50 mile per hour winds.
