Jordan Spieth Wins Again

spieth dean

So this is the Jordan Spieth we are supposed to see. The one that splits fairways, makes putts and even chips it in a few times. Spieth shook off his Masters meltdown and all the naysayers that were asking ‘what’s wrong with Jordan’. There’s nothing wrong with Jordan Spieth other than being held to too high a standard that he can only blame himself for. Spieth was his magical self at the Dean & Deluca Invitational as he was chipping,… Continue Reading

Super Sunday for Matsuyama, Fowler…Not So Much

matsuyama wmo

Super Bowl Sunday was shaping up nicely for Rickie Fowler.  He had just moved into a two shot lead at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and was about to tee off on the drive-able par four seventeenth hole. The way he has been closing out tournaments lately a two stroke lead with two to play looked like money in the bank. But that’s why they play the game. Fowler”s driver ran through the green into the water behind the green… Continue Reading

Jordan Spieth has picked up right where he left off from last year.  He sizzled again at Kapalua’s Plantation Course shooting an eight under 65 to get him to -24 and a five stroke lead over Brooks Koepka. On Friday Spieth joked how it would be great to get to 32 under par and beat Ernie Els’ tournament record by a shot.  But he did so with a smile on his face.  Well, The Golden Child, as buddy Justin Thomas… Continue Reading

by Jeff Skinner Kenny Perry is 53 years old and not supposed to be making any noise here at the U.S. Open. But he’s here because he won the 2013 Senior Open and showed us that he still has game, even when playing the flatbellies. On 14 he hit a poor tee shot but made up for it with the shot of the tournament so far. Here’s how he describes it, “I’m in a bunker, I hit a poor 5-wood off… Continue Reading

Phil Mickelson’s Career Slam Slips Away

by Jeff Skinner There is no joy in Mudville oops, I should say the Sandhills, Mighty Casey has struck out. Our Mighty Casey this week was supposed to be Phil Mickelson. He swung and missed only it wasn’t with a bat it was his putter. No player came into the U.S. Open with more pressure on him, mostly self-imposed, than Phil Mickelson. Phil’s six seconds and his trials at the U.S. Open are legendary. But ever since he hugged the… Continue Reading

Pinehurst No. 2 Flyover Holes #13 & #14

Most players will hit something less than driver off the tee on this short, dogleg-right par 4, which features probably the most uphill approach shot on the course. Anything short of the green will leave a difficult recovery, and in a rarity for a Donald Ross course, it’s much better to be long than short of the green here. If you play it the way it should be played, this is a potential birdie hole. The downhill tee shot favors… Continue Reading
