Flop Shots: Greg Norman & Ted Bishop

norman fox

The world of golf doesn’t lack for over-sized egos. Whether you are walking down the practice range, through the hallways of any of the administrative bodies or watching the talking heads on any television broadcast egos abound. It’s one thing to have a bit of an ego when you’re involved in playing the game and playing with the world’s best. I mean who hasn’t told Tiger Woods or Phil Mickelson how great they are? Same for Jordan Spieth and Rory… Continue Reading

Heroes & Zeroes at The PGA Championship

PGA: PGA Championship - Second Round

It was a wild day at the 97th PGA Championship with record scores, flying clubs and a storm so fierce it forced play to be halted and even took down many of the structures on site including the Golf Channel’s “Live From” set. So the second round will be completed early Saturday and then the third should get underway about thirty minutes later. There was plenty of excitement at Whistling Straits long before that nasty weather blew in. Heroes: First… Continue Reading

Ted Bishop At It Again

And file this in the “He just doesn’t get it” category. Ted Bishop, the not so recently deposed president of the PGA of America lets loose with another troublesome Tweet. You would think Ted would have learned after his controversial Tweet calling Ian Poulter a “lil girl” got him bounced from his presidency and banned for life from anything of consequence at the PGA. But no, he couldn’t leave things be. After Rickie Fowler’s dramatic win at The PLAYERS good… Continue Reading

The PLAYERS Primed for a Crazy Finish

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Two

The stage is set for a wild Sunday at The PLAYERS with a leaderboard so crowded it’s anyone’s guess who will claim this victory. Chris Kirk has a one shot lead over the most tightly packed leaderboard of the season. There are thirty players within five shots of the lead and plenty more right behind them. But this PLAYERS has a different look from previous years. Kirk, himself no household name leads a group of lesser known players with a… Continue Reading

Well some guys don’t disappear that easy. Bishop, who never met a camera or microphone he didn’t like appears in the current issue of Sports Illustrated’s Golf+Digital as the author of his own article. The subject of his piece is his beloved Ryder Cup and… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1.  All right, I can’t take it anymore. That Omega watch commercial with Rory McIlroy has pushed me to the edge. Is it too much to ask for a different song or something from the Omega people? I’ve heard that so much I want to jump off one of those Dubai skyscrapers.  2.  The Monday finish of the Honda Classic was the most exciting golf of the tournament. The weather certainly fouled up the weekend and the Monday golf while… Continue Reading

Paddy Harrington Survives to Win The Honda Classic

Padraig Harrington began the restart at today’s Honda Classic at two under par, five shots off the lead and seemingly out of contention. With so many good players between him and the lead his chances were slight at best. But that’s why they play the game and an amazing string of four straight birdies from 11-14 brought the three time major champion right into the mix. Of course Paddy doesn’t like to do things the easy way. He splashed his… Continue Reading

Monday Morning Shootout at The Honda Classic

This is the kind of finish the folks at The Honda Classic had hoped for. No, not a Monday morning closeout, but the exciting shootout that is about to take place. It’s like the shootout at the OK Corral, where the gunslingers were poised to take each other down. This is a packed leaderboard and thanks to what may be the worst shot of Ian Poulter’s career, the Honda Classic has boiled down to a Monday Morning Shootout. There’s plenty… Continue Reading

Ted Bishop: I Got a Raw Deal

ted-bishop-pga-america_t640

Former PGA president Ted Bishop should be working on getting his 45 hole Legends Golf Club ready for next season. If all went as planned at last fall’s Ryder Cup he would have been riding a high for a very long time. But the ass whipping taken by the Americans at the hands of those pesky Europeans screwed up Ted’s plans. Then came the Tweet that brought down the President. After spending the day with Nick Faldo at the Greenbrier… Continue Reading
