JB Holmes Spoils a Good Walk

J.B.-Holmes

Somewhere Kevin Na is letting out a long sigh. Thanks to JB Holmes’ play on the 18th hole of the Farmers Insurance Open Na is no longer the poster boy for slow play. The glacial moving Holmes now lays claim to the title of the slowest player in golf. Whether or not Holmes is actually the slowest may be up for debate but his performance cast him front and center as to what is so very wrong with the pace… Continue Reading

Tiger Makes Cut, Phil Needs More Gloves

tiger 2018

The big news out of San Diego and the Farmers Insurance Open is that Tiger Woods made the cut and will be around for the weekend to pump up the television ratings. Woods, while not sharp was able to hack it around Torrey Pines and heroically birdie his final hole to finish on the number at one under par. One of the other big draws this week is the hometown favorite Phil Mickelson. And Phil the Thrill did just that… Continue Reading

Must Watch Golf…All Weekend

spieth singapore

Usually on Monday morning I’ll cruise through the all the golf sites to get the inside story from the weekend. But this morning, quite frankly my head is spinning. What a crazy golf weekend. And it’s not over as the boys of the PGA Tour still have to complete the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. It was a smorgasbord of golf and we got to see golf 24 hours a day as the tournaments circled the globe. It… Continue Reading

Scott Stallings Gets It Done at The Farmers

by Jeff Skinner I am just now getting back into the habit of watching Sunday afternoon golf.  Excuse me while I try and kick that NFL addiction it’s a tough one to go cold turkey on. The Seahawks and Broncos would do well to take a lesson from Scott Stallings as he won for the third time on the PGA Tour at The Farmers Insurance Open.  In the big moment, when he needed to make a big play he did. … Continue Reading

Tiger, Phil or Adam…Player of the Year?

by Jeff Skinner The PGA Tour has announced their official nominees for Player of the Year.  Players can vote until 5p.m. Thursday and the winner will be announced on Friday.  Their nominees are Matt Kuchar, Henrik Stenson, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Tiger Woods. With all due respect to Kuch and Stenson, who both had wonderful seasons, the real competition is between Woods, Scott and Mickelson, or maybe there really isn’t any competition at all. At the Deutsche Bank both… Continue Reading

Tiger Wins…But Season Starts in April

by Jeff Skinner Tiger Woods took a long walk spoiled yesterday, a very long walk.  When Tiger claimed his 75th PGA Tour win at the Farmers Insurance Open what looked like a probable run away had turned into a death march.   The excruciatingly slow pace of play took a toll on Woods as he let his eight shot lead dwindle to a four shots before he closed it out.  His nearly four hour, eleven hole round got the better of… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods All Smiles After Another Torrey Win

by Jeff Skinner Chalk up number 75 for Tiger Woods as his win at The Farmers Insurance Open leaves him only seven wins short of the all time PGA Tour winner, Sam Snead.  Tiger may have stumbled down the stretch but when it takes 3 hours and 45 minutes to play eleven holes you can understand a lapse in concentration, even from him. The PGA Tour has the magic formula to get Tiger smiling: Amanda Ballionis.  Tiger hasn’t smiled that… Continue Reading

Phil Mickelson Sees the Light

by Jeff Skinner Do you think Phil Mickelson watches The Golf Channel?  Does he surf the web to check out the latest golf news?  Well, Phil must have heard how his “Tax” comments sounded to the rest of us because he now has come out with an apology. I like to think that Phil walked into his house Sunday night, headed into the kitchen to see Amy and the kids and as soon as he gave Amy a peck on… Continue Reading

Phil’s Taxes…Wrong Place, Wrong Time

by Jeff Skinner It’s amazing how the Big Dawgs can always steal the spot light.  This weekend there were three great finishes in tournaments with two going to playoffs. On the European Tour,eventual winner Jamie Donaldson snuck into the lead and had to watch as potential tying putts by Justin Rose and Thorbjorn lipped out on eighteen. Scott Stallings blew a chance at The Humana Challenge with a water ball on eighteen and missed the playoff by a stroke.  Three… Continue Reading
