Dustin Johnson Ties Leo Diegel

dj toc18

When Dustin Johnson feathered a feel wedge from 85 years to within 3 feet on the 3rd hole at Kapalua Sunday it seemed to me the tournament was all but over. His converted birdie gave him a four stroke lead which isn’t insurmountable on this Tour (especially when you think back to DJ’s last start where he squandered a six stroke lead in the final round). But today it just looked like he was going to run away and hide… Continue Reading

Michael Breed Out at The Golf Channel

breed 2

Any self respecting golf fanatic spends plenty of time watching The Golf Channel and is sure to try a few of the tips offered on their many instructional programs. Well, this year there has been a significant change in their team of instructors. Michael Breed’s tag line on his Golf Fix show was,”let’s do this.”  Unfortunately he won’t be doing it any longer as he has been dropped from their lineup. According to The Man Out Front at Golfweek, Breed… Continue Reading

My Scotland Adventure…Royal Dornoch

img_2691

We continued our Scottish adventure on Tuesday with one of our most anticipated days of the trip: 36 holes at Royal Dornoch. The debates rage on over which is the best course in Scotland…and the world and Royal Dornoch is always in the mix. Some rate the Old Course as the best but the history of The Open and Old Tom has as much to do with that as the course itself. Royal Dornoch usually sits right behind the Old… Continue Reading

Open Championship Hangover

Like most golf fans I still can’t get enough of the 145th Open Championship.  Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson’s 2016 version of the Duel in the Sun was as good as it gets.  “Epic” and “classic” are the words being used to describe their final day showdown and rightly so. I even caught some of the replay today on the Golf Channel…it’s OK you can admit that you all did too. Here’s a highlight reel from British TV.  It’s worth… Continue Reading

When Billy Hurley III won last week we knew his life was about to change. But the unassuming former Navy lieutenant who has captured the hearts of many golf fans showed why so many have come to count him as one of their favorites. Hurley earned an invite to the Open Championship next month as one of the perks of winning the Quicken Loans National. But his sister had scheduled her wedding that same weekend so a tough decision faced… Continue Reading

Must Watch Golf…All Weekend

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

Paul Azinger Comes Back to the Booth

Good news for every golf fan: Paul Azinger is coming back to work. According to reports, first reported by Jaime Diaz, and he never gets it wrong, Azinger will be the new analyst for Fox Sports replacing the recently departed Greg Norman. “Zinger” is a voice dearly missed. He has a resume that few analysts can match: he is actually a winning former Ryder Cup Captain. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg that is Azinger. Azinger is a… Continue Reading

An “Unburdened” Tiger Woods, Is the Chase Over?

tiger hero 15

The PGA Tour finally finishes out the 2015 calendar year this week as Tiger Woods comes off his couch to host the Hero World Challenge. The exclusive eighteen man event takes place at the even more exclusive Albany private community in the Bahamas as some big names vie for a nice holiday paycheck and a few world ranking points. How there are world ranking points at stake at such a limited field event is ludicrous but that’s another argument. This… Continue Reading

Saturday at the PGA Championship: Fun, Fun, Fun

day fist pga

Watching day three at the 97th PGA Championship was about as much fun as any golf fan could take. The day was marked by big names, spectacular shots, creative play, great bounce backs and a level of drama that only happens at the majors. The tone was set early when players out early put up plenty of red numbers. And when the leaders hit Whistling Straits they did as Ben Hogan once said and ”brought this monster to its knees.”… Continue Reading

Inbee Park: Doing Something Really Special

There is something special and wonderful going on in golf and most sports fans and golf fans are missing it. Inbee Park is one special golfer. The number one player in women’s golf is crafting a resume that screams “All Time Great” but the average golf fan wouldn’t know her if she whacked them over the head with her very reliable putter. Park closed out the field at the Ricoh Women’s British Open today to win her second major in ’15… Continue Reading
