The PGA Championship starts today as we close out the major season a bit early. Those Olympics are screwing up everything…but that’s another rant. It wouldn’t be a major without the Links Life Golf Crew Picks so here we go. Fresh off his big win at the Open Championship is G. Rennie: So far this is the season of first time major winners and I think the trend is likely to continue. So my first three picks are from the… Continue Reading

Forget the Big 3…We Have The Wild Bunch

wild bunch

All season there has been much written about a new Big 3 in golf.

Sure, some of it was their victory totals but I think much of it was their “likability” factor. All are young, strong, attractive with interesting backstories. We golfers love our history and after Tiger Woods’ departure from contention we wanted something to hold… Continue Reading

Oakmont’s USGA Rules Decision…What If?

dj smile trophy

After back to back controversial U.S. Opens the USGA should probably get down on their collective knees and thank the golf gods. Maybe they could sacrifice a few blue blazers and some neckties while they are at it. Because when all was said and done they got lucky, very lucky. Last year at Chambers Bay they withstood criticism about the course and its barely there greens but the exciting finish with Jordan Spieth winning saved the day, except for Dustin… Continue Reading

But there’s also Adam Scott, Davis Love III, Justin Rose, Stewart Cink, Rickie Fowler, Jimmy Walker, Lee Westwood, Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedeker and Natalie Gulbis. And there… Continue Reading

Scott, currently the seventh ranked golfer in the world would have teamed with world number one Jason Day to form a very impressive Australian team.

10 Things I Think….Masters Style

1. One of the most interesting characters in The Masters this week is amateur Bryson DeChambeau. He’s the current U.S. Am and NCAA Individual Champion and is an oddity in golf as he plays a special set of irons that are all about the same length as the average 6 iron. He has a chance to truly make a statement here at Augusta National. 2. If you think that think Bryson’s clubs are based on some new, revolutionary thinking you’re… Continue Reading
