Well, Juli Inkster isn’t Gentle Ben but she’ll go down in history as having as much faith in her troops as he did and that faith was well founded. Team USA… Continue Reading

U.S. Women’s Open: Back to a Traditional USGA Setup

open logo 2

Last year the USA made history by playing both the men’s and women’s U.S. Open’s on the same course in back to back weeks.  This year the USGA went back to its normal routine with different weeks and venues and the truth is the courses couldn’t be more different. The men played on a baked out, extra firm, mostly brown links layout that many players labeled ridiculous. There will be none of that this week. The Lancaster Country Club, hosting… Continue Reading

A Love Story: Stacy Lewis & Arkansas

by Jeff Skinner The dream season on the LPGA Tour continued yesterday at the WalMart NW Arkansas Championship. Michelle Wie was the story early in the week with back to back 66’s but the week of celebration may have took its toll on the 2014 U.S. Open champion as she faded with a 73 and toppled down the leaderboard. But that left the stage open for a host of players to make a charge. And charge they did. Angela Stanford… Continue Reading

A Dozen Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  The funniest thing I saw all week was the timing of Caroline Wozniacki changing her picture on her Twitter account. Click here, you must see this. She’s posing as a witch over a cauldron, all Bubble, Bubble Toil and Trouble like. Rory immediately shot himself out of The Memorial with a 43 on his front nine in round two. Strange isn’t it? 2.  So Phil Mickelson spends more time denying any wrongdoing in an insider trading… Continue Reading
