masters logo 2015 new

Sunday at The Masters is as special as it gets in golf. Third round leader Jordan Spieth called The Masters “the greatest week in our sport” and two time champion Bubba Watson called Augusta America’s “home of golf.” Well the folks at Pinehurst may disagree with Bubba but few will challenge Jordan on his point. This is the best week of the year in professional golf and Sunday at Augusta is as good as it gets. Spieth sounded comfortable going… Continue Reading

spieth 2

That is why we watch the PGA Tour, plain and simple. The final round at The Valspar Championship was one heck of a Sunday. This was the best golfing Sunday on the PGA Tour since Rory McIlroy out dueled Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler in the dark at the PGA Championship. There were so many great shots and lead changes coming down the stretch it had the feel of a major championship. Jordan Spieth may have been the last man… Continue Reading

Finchem & PGA Tour Oppose USGA’s Anchoring Ban

by Jeff Skinner On Sunday PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem took some time to address the assembled press at The Match Play Championship on the Tour’s stance on the anchoring ban. The Commish says it’s the PGA Tour’s stance that a ban on anchoring would be bad for the game and more specifically for the PGA Tour. The USGA and the R&A notified us several months ago about their intention to put forward a proposal to change    essentially change the… Continue Reading

Sawgrass Takes No Prisoners at The Players Championship

by Jeff Skinner What a difference a day makes, especially at The Players Championship.  There were some amazing turnarounds at Sawgrass as plenty of golfers got down to business, played some good golf and fought to make the cut. With the leaders at eight under par and the cut falling at even par no one is out of this tournament.  Most disappointing has to be the play of world number one Rory McIlroy.  Rory shot 72-76 to miss his third… Continue Reading

Europe Leads The Solheim Cup

by Jeff Skinner The U.S. Women were playing the role of Comeback Kids as they came down the stretch in the afternoon session at The Solheim Cup. Late in the day the scoreboard was all blue as Team Europe led in all four matches. The first match to finish was the third match off the tee in the afternoon and Sophie Gustafson and Caroline Hedwall put an old fashioned butt whipping on Brittany Lincicome and Vicky Hurst.  The Americans unable… Continue Reading

by Jeff Skinner Nick Watney celebrated the Fourth of July a bit early as he played well enough to hold off K.J. Choi and give Watney his second victory of the season at The A.T & T. National. Watney really got his game moving on the weekend when he shot a sizzling 62 on Saturday to vault him into the lead.  He kept the heat on Sunday as he started with three birdies on the front nine on his way… Continue Reading

Paul Azinger Cracked the Ryder Cup Code

by G. Rennie The growth of the Ryder Cup during the last two decades must have exceeded the expectations of even the most hard bitten power brokers at both the US and European PGA’s. It’s now billed as the biggest deal in Global Golf, is promoted non-stop on the TV outlets involved with golf, a decent part of the Amazon rain forest has been sacrificed to carry the print journalism focused on this biennial battle, and now Brandel Chamblee, respected… Continue Reading

Fireworks on The Fourth

by Jeff Skinner It hasn’t been a bad few weeks for Justin Rose.  In his last three tournaments he has a win at Jack’s Memorial then he tied for ninth at The Travelers and now he claims his second PGA Tour win at The AT&T National.  That’s a pretty good streak and the icing on his cake is that he now qualifies for The Open Championship at St. Andrews in two weeks.  Things are looking pretty good for Justin right… Continue Reading

Tiger Loves The Fourth of July

by Jeff Skinner Looks like Tiger is planning his own special Fourth of July celebration. With his four under par 66 on Friday, he took the lead from buddy Anthony Kim and leads Rod Pampling by a stroke. This could be bad news for the field at The AT&T National. In 37 PGA events where Tiger held the 36 hole lead, he went on to win 31 times. Woods did say he was going to be a selfish host and… Continue Reading
