Mike McGraw: New Home, New Attitude, Still Winning

mike mcgraw baylor

I remember watching the NCAA Final last season as the University of Alabama completed its back to back championship run. It was pretty compelling stuff as the young men on both Alabama and Oklahoma State left it all on the course. One of the most interesting aspects of the match was the fact that the former Head Golf Coach at OK ST. was now coaching at Alabama as an assistant. Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel pens a wonderful piece… Continue Reading

Webb Simpson’s Ryder Cup Stunk

Webb Simpson 14 ryder

The 2014 Ryder Cup fallout continues and I suspect it won’t stop until the U.S. finally wins one. Recently one of America’s own spoke out on what a terrible experience his Ryder Cup was. Webb Simpson told The Golf Channel that his time spent in Scotland wasn’t too much fun. No kidding Webb…it was a drag for anyone hoping the Americans would be competitive. “The golf side was a terrible experience because I only played in two matches,” Simpson said.… Continue Reading

Fallout From Far and Wide on Phil’s Callout of Watson

Phil-Mickelson-Ryder-Cup

The day after the 2014 Ryder Cup couldn’t be more different for the two teams. The European Team is most likely nursing the remnants of some heavy duty celebration. The Euros played exquisitely and deserve any and all tributes thrown their way. The Americans on the other hand have to asking themselves a painfully familiar question: Why do we keep losing at the Ryder Cup? Team USA has lost in eight of the last ten matches and from the look… Continue Reading

Heroes & Zeroes at The Ryder Cup

There was some great play from the American Ryder Cup team this week but, stop me if you heard this one, Europe just played better. A 16.5 – 11.5 point loss is just another in the progression of disappointments Team USA has to swallow. Some stellar play from the rookies wasn’t enough for Team USA to break Europe’s hold on Mr. Ryder’s Cup. Patrick Reed 3.5 points A+ : Reed paired with Jordan Spieth for some great play and was… Continue Reading

Captain Watson Fails in Another American Ryder Cup Defeat

ryder cup 14 logo tro

by Jeff Skinner With another resounding defeat for the Americans at the Ryder Cup the second guessing of Captain Tom Watson will reach a crescendo. In fact it started long before the Euro’s closed out the USA on Sunday with legions of writers and analysts ripping Watson for many of the confusing calls he made this week. Consider this my “Man Crush Disclaimer.” I think Tom Watson is one of the iconic figures in the game and I respect him… Continue Reading

Team USA Needs History to Repeat

ryder cup 14 logo tro

by Jeff Skinner It’s like déjà vu all over again…or something like that. Yes, it seems just like yesterday that the host Ryder Cup team sailed to a 10-6 advantage after the first two days. Then out of nowhere the visiting team pulled a Sunday comeback for the ages to win the cup on foreign soil. Tom Watson and his band of not so merry men will be hoping to steal a page from the ’12 European team’s playbook at… Continue Reading

Americans Fall Behind 10-6 at Ryder Cup

by Jeff Skinner Sound the alarm, push the panic button. The U.S. Ryder Cup Team is in deep trouble. After a successful morning fourball session that saw them cut the European lead down to one point the Yanks ran out of gas in the afternoon. The first group out, Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar started with a bang as Johnson chipped in for birdie on the opening hole and a 1 up lead. But the Yanks could only manage to… Continue Reading

Watson Makes Phil Mickelson a Spectator

by Jeff Skinner The afternoon foursomes are on the course at the 40th Ryder Cup and Captain Tom Watson did a great job of putting out his best and hottest teams to try and wrestle the lead from the Europeans. First out are Zach Johnson and Matt Kuchar both known for being straight hitters and that’s a must at Gleneagles. This Ryder Cup course is fringed with rough so deep it could be mistaken for a U.S. Open. That was… Continue Reading

Team USA Takes Fourballs…Cuts Euro’s Lead

by Jeff Skinner The morning fourball matches closed with the team of Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker earning a tough half point from Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter. Fowler’s eagle putt stopped just short of the hole and thereby cut the USA comeback a bit shorter than Captain Tom Watson had hoped. Team USA was able to pick up a full point on the European Team taking the morning session at Gleneagles 2 ½ to 1½. That still leaves Europe… Continue Reading
