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

Holmes Leads but All Eyes on Tiger at The Hero

tiger-hero-16-tm

J.B. Holmes was the real hero today in the Bahamas but of course it was Tiger Woods we all tuned in to see. Holmes leads the elite field at the Hero World Challenge after a smoking 8 under 64 which included seven birds an eagle and a lone bogey at the opening hole. An impressive display of late season golf for sure. But it was Woods that was the “star” of the show. Woods gave us a bit of everything,… Continue Reading

It’s Tiger’s Era No Longer

For a long while now we have been listening to the cries that golf won’t survive when Tiger Woods is done. Well, Tiger hasn’t won a major in seven years, has created some great excuses (non-firing glutes) and now has an acute allergy to fairways. And the game is just fine. With all due respect to Mark Twain, reports of the death of golf have been greatly exaggerated. Just look at the past few weeks on the PGA Tour. Working… Continue Reading

Winners Jordan Spieth is playing like he’s been at Augusta all his life. But he’s had only six rounds in competition. If the next two are anything like the first two the field is playing for second place. 64, 66 to open has never been done before and he looks so confident even a few burps won’t derail him. There is a great tournament going on at Augusta…for second place right now. Charley Hoffman, Dustin Johnson, Paul Casey and Phil… Continue Reading

With this win he has four top tens, including two second, five top 25 finishes and has pocketed… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

chees

1.  I am not a fan of playoffs in golf. To me it is anti-climatic. Watching two guys replay eighteen isn’t exciting it’s boring. You would think it would be thrilling since it is match play at that point but it never is. There is too much time to fill and I am sure those television producers feel the same. 2.  Losing two of golf’s greats in a week is tough. Billy Casper and Charlie Sifford both made their mark… Continue Reading
