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

10 Things I Think

AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am - Final Round

1. Vaughn Taylor had one hell of a week. Playing with no tour card he got into the AT&T Pebble Beach on his past champions status. That’s past “Reno-Tahoe Open” champion, not Pebble Beach champion. He said all he was hoping for was a top ten so he could play next week. Even that was a fairly lofty goal. Who would have thought it would turn out like it did. 2. Taylor has had some tough times. He last won… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

every palmer

1.  Matt Every played some clutch golf on Sunday at The Arnold Palmer Invitational. A 66 and the most clutch of clutch putts on eighteen. That’s how you close out a round.  2.  The only thing missing from Arnie’s stop was the rare double eagle. Then we get two in one tournament: Daniel Berger on Saturday and Zack Johnson on Sunday, amazing. 3.  I love Lydia Ko and all she brings to the LPGA. She’s talented, humble and gets it.… Continue Reading

Lydia Ko Gets It

Lydia Ko continues to be one of the best stories in sport. The seventeen year old already has two worldwide wins and two second place finishes this season and seems to break another record each times she wins.  The youngest ever number one golfer continues to amaze us each time she shows up. But it just isn’t on the course where she impresses us. It’s off the course also. Each of Ko’s performances is marked with patience and maturity, two… Continue Reading
