The Old “Fall Series” Still Alive and Well

fall series

When the PGA Tour decided to rewrite the calendar and make their season a “wrap-around” season that encompassed two calendar years I, like many protested. The Fall Series, the tournaments after the FedEx Cup Playoffs and before the Tournament of Champions in January had been a kind of mini-tour school. The big name players rarely played them, full FedEx Cup points were not awarded to the winner and the winner’s paycheck never approached a million dollars. This allowed the fields… Continue Reading

He’s back at it again. The Coolest Guy in Golf to us, the Most Interesting Golfer in the World to others, Miguel Angel Jimenez is back in the spotlight. And it’s not for busting Keegan Bradley’s balls. The ageless wonder carded another hole his one while defending his title at the Open de Espana. The 51 year old treasure aced the par three eighth hole and in doing so won 288 bottles of beer. Now beer isn’t Miguel’s usual beverage… Continue Reading

TPC Sawgrass is one tough course and it had Phil talking to himself,” I was thinking to myself as I was walking around, I can’t believe I’ve actually won here.” Next… Continue Reading

The Dye-abolical 17th at Sawgrass

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Two

The PGA Tour’s flagship event, The PLAYERS Championship always generates plenty of buzz. It’s always one of the best fields of the season and played on a course that generates as much controversy as Miguel Angel Jimenez vs. Keegan Bradley, maybe more. No, definitely more. TPC Sawgrass has been both praised and reviled and love it or hate it Pete Dye’s creation changed the way golf courses and golf course architects were perceived.

Rory McIlroy may have had an easy time with the new and not so improved Jason Dufner in the first round of the WGC-Cadillac Match Play (he won 5&4) but he didn’t have it so easy earlier this week.

At a junior clinic in San Diego Brad Dalke figured he’d try his luck against Rory. Now,… Continue Reading

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

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.

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
