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 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

American Studs Disappoint at Solheim Cup

by Jeff Skinner All week Captain Liselotte Nuemann had told her players, “Let’s make history.”  They were prophetic words as the Euros went out and white-washed the Americans for the first time on home soil.  It was the first ever win for the European team away from home and the first time ever they have defended the cup. It was a week many Americans will soon want to forget but with a devastating loss like this there comes responsibility.  Captain… Continue Reading
