Dustin Johnson has been killing the ball for years.  He’s consistently one of the longest hitters on tour and has plenty of PGA Tour wins to show for it. But he never won a major until he learned to hit a fade.  He started playing more of a fade this season and he captured his first major, the U.S. Open and was PGA Tour Player of the Year. A draw isn’t everything.  Watch and learn how to hit that real,… Continue Reading

The Fist Pump Is Back

It didn’t take long for Tiger Woods to start feeling like his ol’ bad ass self. Tiger took his game a step further today with his bogey free 7 under 65 that had him moving up the leaderboard at the Hero World Challenge and he even broke out his classic fist pump. His wasn’t the lowest round of the day, Bubba Watson had a 63, nor was it the second lowest, Brandt Snedeker shot 64 but for Woods who is… Continue Reading

Dustin Johnson continued his stellar play yesterday at the BMW Championship and turned his three shot lead into his margin of victory for his third win of the season. He also may have positioned himself as the front runner for Player of the Year with a major (U.S. Open ) a WGC (Bridgestone) and now a FedEx Cup Playoff event. The tag line for BMW, the cars, is “The Ultimate Driving Machine.” And that may as well be Johnson’s nickname… Continue Reading

My Scotland Adventure ….Continues

DSC00570

Our time in St. Andrews was marked by sunny days, links golf, bustling streets and a few nights out in a very friendly and popular village.

We visited the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral and stopped by Old Tom & Young Tom Morris’ graves, spent some time walking along the West Sands, hit the British Golf Museum and found a few spots… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…PGA Championship Style

Jimmy Walker

Golf is a strange game. Jimmy Walker wasn’t on anyone’s hot list coming into the PGA Championship. His 2016 season hadn’t been anything special.

What a strange game and what a week for Walker. After years of winless seasons Walker started to win soon after… Continue Reading

Hot: Jimmy Walker shot an opening round 65, his lowest ever in a major to earn a one shot lead at five under par. Little know Emiliano… Continue Reading
