Michelle Wie Leads an Exciting U.S. Women’s Open

by Jeff Skinner The 2014 golf season just keeps getting better for the LPGA. With new tournaments, new sponsors, fresh new faces and plenty of publicity the U.S. Women’s Open started with much anticipation. So far it hasn’t disappointed at all. With the women following the men at Pinehurst No.2 Mike Whan couldn’t have written a better script for the first two rounds. He should send the USGA a big thank you note. The week started with plenty of buzz… Continue Reading

Ramblings from the 19th Hole

by G. Rennie This past Saturday I was tuned into the CBS coverage of the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hollow. Stewart Cink was on a back side green, the 16th I think, when one of the commentators mentioned that Stewie hadn’t been in the winner’s circle for some time, going on three years, and that last win was the Open Championship in 2009.  A great achievement for Cink, for sure, was the win at Turnberry… Continue Reading

Yani Tseng Looks To Take Another Leap

by Jeff Skinner Yani Tseng may be looking to keep her winning streak going this week at The Kraft Nabisco Championship but she certainly will change at least one thing she did from last year. Tseng, a past winner here in 2010 had the lead going into the final round at last year’s Kraft.  She was paired with Stacy Lewis in the final group and as she walked to the first tee she playfully grabbed the trophy that was displayed… Continue Reading

Thoughts From The Deutsche Bank Championship

by Jeff Skinner Webb Simpson putted like a fiend down the stretch: long birdie on 18 in regulation and two clutch putts in the playoffs to give him his second PGA win. Someone on the PGA Tour needs to let Simpson’s wife know to control herself while on camera and her husband’s opponent makes a poor play.  That’s “bush league” for sure. Adam Scott’s putting has certainly improved with his long putter.  But that stance of his looks so uncomfortable.… Continue Reading

Olin Browne Claims U.S. Senior Open

by Jeff Skinner Olin Browne achieved a career milestone yesterday as he outlasted Mark O’Meara down the stretch to win the U.S. Senior Open. It was Brown’s first major win at any level and his first win since 2005. Browne is the epitome of the “journeyman” golfer on The PGA Tour with three wins before this victory and a career of ups and downs.  His game is more suited to the shorter courses on the Champions Tour and this week… Continue Reading

Anthony Kim Having Fun Again

by Jeff Skinner To steal a line from Forrest Gump’s mom, “The PGA Tour is like a box of chocolates…you never know what you’re going to get.”  That’s the case at The Greenbrier Classic as the unpredictable Anthony Kim shot to the top of the leaderboard with a bogey free, eight birdie round of 62.  Kim has been erratic the past two seasons as he battled back from thumb surgery and some questionable practice habits. We’ve seen what Kim can… Continue Reading

Tommy Gainey Earns His Keep

by Jeff Skinner This PGA Tour certainly has a different feel this season.  Phil and Tiger, for one reason or another, haven’t had the tour presence that we have come to know for the past decade.  That has opened the door for some players to win a few trophies and for others to make their mark on tour. At the start of the season who would have thought that Bubba Watson and Mark Wilson would be two time winners?  Could… Continue Reading

Saturday Swing Tip: Bubba Watson Wants to Have Fun

Today’s tip is from longballer Bubba Watson.  It isn’t about  swing thoughts or set up or anything technical.  It’s about relaxing and having fun on the golf course.  Bubba says,”I don’t want to have a job. I just want to have fun and play golf for a living.”  Like he says in his Twitter videos,” You’re welcome.”
