Gerina Pillar may have come up short in at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout but this is a player who seems so very ready to win. We first heard of Pillar awhile back but she was billed as a member of the ”husband and wife” who both play professional golf. Indeed, her husband Martin is on the PGA Tour for his second full time season and the two of them were both in contention last week in their respective… Continue Reading

Saturday-Swing-Tip-4-250x175

Sometimes it seems like those PGA pros are so good they could play blindfolded.  Well, watch here as ESPN’s Sports Science crew does just that with Jason Day.  The video is a few moths old (it was filmed after he became world number one) but it is no less amazing. He actually hits it longer while he’s blindfolded!  Now that’s impressive but don’t expect him to make like Lexi Thompson when she putts and close his eyes. Day is doing… Continue Reading

The leaderboard at the WGC- Cadillac Championship is indeed a stellar one. Popular players like leader Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson are only separated by a handful of strokes. It looks like another dramatic weekend is on deck and certainly worth watching. So I tuned in early for the Saturday Morning Drive to watch the Golf Channel crew give me some inside info. And I got more than I asked for. As Morning Drive… Continue Reading

1. It goes to show you…you never know in this game. While all of us are crowning the twenty-somethings as the new Big 3 Adam Scott comes through and shows us what a 35 year old can do on a tough course. On Saturday with a quadruple bogey on fifteen he looked to have lost his chance. But a determined attitude and a new confidence with his putter allowed him to fight back and win for the first time since… Continue Reading

Lexi Thompson Dominates in Thailand

When Lexi Thompson turned professional the folks at Cobra/Puma jumped on her to endorse their products and be their female face of golf.  They saw the huge potential in the teenager that drove it as long as the boys.  And Thompson has lived up to their expectations and more. The 21 year old Thompson continued to impress with a dominating victory at the Honda LPGA Thailand for her seventh LPGA title and third in just seven months. Thompson cruised to… Continue Reading
