by Jeff Skinner If the morning flight at The Open Championship is any indication we are in for one heck of a tournament. Clear skies, warm temperatures and a lack of wind made the Royal Liverpool course so very gettable this morning. And excuse the grammar, but it was got. So far there are 34 rounds in the house at par or better and another dozen ready to close out under par. The big names did their share to add… Continue Reading

Prez Cup Final

by G. Rennie The official PGA Tour statistics say that 1.97 inches of rain fell on Muirfield Village Golf Club during the days of competition this week but I don’t believe it. I had at least 2 inches of rain my shoes on Friday alone!  Rain was the overriding theme of this President’s Cup and it’s a shame. Jack’s place in Dublin, Ohio has earned a reputation as a reliably wet venue for its June hosting of The Memorial Tournament.  But… Continue Reading

The golf course almost became the lead story of this Open but , in the end, it was the players themselves… Continue Reading

Sunshine at the U.S. Open…The Miracle at Merion

by Jeff Skinner So much for the predictions of horrible weather at the U.S. Open.  Believe it or not the golf Gods showed favor upon us and we got to see plenty of golf today.  Even though our drive from New York to Merion was a very wet one, with fairly heavy rain we totally lucked out. Play had been halted during our drive and we faced the prospect of being totally washed out but fate had other plans for… Continue Reading

Ramblings From The Easy Chair… Masters Edition

The thrills provided by Adam Scott and Angel Cabrera down the  back side of Augusta National and into the two playoff holes are what we’ve come to expect from the Championship that always delivers compelling competition. Their exploits have been well chronicled here and in other media outlets… Continue Reading
