A Crazy Sports Weekend & Those Damn Patriots

rahm

It was a wild weekend for golf as we saw some big names earn wins around the globe. I spent too much time watching the Golf Channel at all hours of the night hoping to catch some great golf and I wasn’t disappointed. First up was ’17 Masters champ Sergio Garcia with a five shot win at the Asian Tour’s SMBC Singapore Open. Sergio is riding high as he carries that green jacket around and has a new-found confident, relaxed… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1. Usually while I am watching a golf tournament I’ll be pulling for my favorites and hoping for great shots from all (well, most of) the pro golfers. But yesterday I was seriously hoping that amateur Lee McCoy would pull a stunner and win the Valspar Championship. He was playing on his home course which he said he played a thousand times and I was hoping he would go all “Phil Mickelson” on the tour. Phil was the last am… Continue Reading

Heroes & Zeroes at The PGA Championship

PGA: PGA Championship - Second Round

It was a wild day at the 97th PGA Championship with record scores, flying clubs and a storm so fierce it forced play to be halted and even took down many of the structures on site including the Golf Channel’s “Live From” set. So the second round will be completed early Saturday and then the third should get underway about thirty minutes later. There was plenty of excitement at Whistling Straits long before that nasty weather blew in. Heroes: First… Continue Reading

Ramblings from a Grumpy Old Golfer

maj 10 aces

So Rory McIlroy laps the field last week at the Wells Fargo jets off with his buddies to England and misses the cut at the BMW PGA. It’s no big deal like many would try to make it. Rory will miss some cuts, most golfers not named Tiger Woods (in his prime) miss cuts. The kid could use the weekend off, after all he hoisting the Irish Open at Royal County Down. “I’d love to have played the weekend but… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…Masters Style

1.  When Bubba Watson won his first Masters he was dubbed an American Folk hero. Jordan Spieth is just a plain old hero. 2.  Wire to wire win, setting Masters records all over the place, green jacket and all the perks that it brings…not bad for a kid that would be graduating from college next month if he hadn’t turned pro. I think Spieth made the right career choice.  3.  Props to Justin Rose for reclaiming his championship form which… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

rory omega

1.  All right, I can’t take it anymore. That Omega watch commercial with Rory McIlroy has pushed me to the edge. Is it too much to ask for a different song or something from the Omega people? I’ve heard that so much I want to jump off one of those Dubai skyscrapers.  2.  The Monday finish of the Honda Classic was the most exciting golf of the tournament. The weather certainly fouled up the weekend and the Monday golf while… Continue Reading

Monty: Rory Better Than Tiger’s Best

GOLF-CHN-WOODS-MCILROY

In his day Colin Montgomerie wasn’t treated too well by American golf fans. They seemed to sense his thin skin and rabbit ears and gave Monty the hardest of times every chance they could. Monty came off as uptight and never found a way to build any relationship with American fans. But this is a new Monty we have seen since he joined the Champions Tour and has spent so much time on the Golf Channel. He’s a kinder, gentler… Continue Reading
