The Open Championship started on Thursday with 156 golfers, hopeful golfers. Hopeful that come Sunday evening as as the sun slipped into the Firth of Clyde that their name would be called as Champion Golfer of the Year. Well, despite what the talking heads may say this Open Championship has come down to just two golfers. 154 golfers have essentially been eliminated. Yes, there is still eighteen holes yet to play but Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson have separated themselves… Continue Reading

He was named Rookie of the Year. But he didn’t win. That all changed today as the twenty three year old tour sophomore played more like a… Continue Reading

Fabian Gomez Wins the Sony Open

I can’t imagine anyone making a trip to Hawaii and going home disappointed. Fabian Gomez certainly is leaving paradise happy as he took home the hardware at the Sony Open. Gomez finished at twenty under par and had to play two more playoff holes to take the victory from tour veteran Brandt Snedeker. It is his second PGA Tour win to go with his 2015 Fedex St. Jude Classic victory.

Rory McIlroy Wins in Dubai

Things are tough at the top.  That’s the case for world number three Rory McIlroy.  You know you are good when a four win season can be classified as a “down” year. McIlroy won the European Tour’s Tour Championship and with it the Race to Dubai (their version of the FedEx Cup) to give him four victories on the PGA and Euro tours in 2015.  But wins at the Wells Fargo, WGC-Match Play, Omega Dubai Classic and DP World Tour… Continue Reading

The Old “Fall Series” Still Alive and Well

fall series

When the PGA Tour decided to rewrite the calendar and make their season a “wrap-around” season that encompassed two calendar years I, like many protested. The Fall Series, the tournaments after the FedEx Cup Playoffs and before the Tournament of Champions in January had been a kind of mini-tour school. The big name players rarely played them, full FedEx Cup points were not awarded to the winner and the winner’s paycheck never approached a million dollars. This allowed the fields… Continue Reading

The sky is not falling. The world isn’t coming an end. Jordan Spieth just missed a cut. Spieth struggled to an opening round 74 at The Barclays and couldn’t get on track with a 73 today. Stuff happens. And it is not like it was even close. Spieth went out in a blaze of glory, five shots off the cut line and to add insult to injury he incurred a penalty on the twelfth when he stepped on his own… Continue Reading

Friday’s Chip Shots

Brooks Koepka paired a second round 67 to go with his opening round 64 to take a one shot lead over youngster Austin Cook who is in just his third PGA Tour event. Koepka isn’t hitting a lot of fairways (13/28) at The FedEx St. Jude Classic but his iron play has been stellar hitting 78% of his Greens in Regulation. Personally, I hope Brooks isn’t peaking too early as I already have him slated as my Dark Horse pick… Continue Reading

He’s Back…Dustin Johnson Out Drives & Out Lasts Field at Doral

It was the PGA Tour’s version on “The Last Man Standing” at Doral yesterday as Donald Trump’s baby exacted a bit of revenge from the players and Dustin Johnson was left standing alone, victorious on a difficult day in Miami. Johnson won for the ninth time on the PGA Tour but not before we watched The Blue Monster rear up and take down a pair of the longest hitters in the game. J.B Holmes squandered a five shot lead by… Continue Reading

Players, Not PGA Will Determine Love’s Fate

2016 United States Ryder Cup Team Captain Announced

It’s déjà vu all over again. The PGA of America officially announced that Davis Love III would captain the 2016 Ryder Cup Team in an attempt to regain the cup from the dominating European Team. If it feels like we have been here before it is because we have. Love came into the 2012 captaincy with all the optimism and confidence that every captain professes before the matches. Love was a successful captain crafting a 10-6 lead going into Sunday… Continue Reading
