Saturday Swing Tip: Drive It Like Lee Trevino

saturday-swing-tip-4-250x175

Not every golfer has the perfect swing…we all just try to get the ball in the hole.  Lee Trevino made a pretty good living with a homemade swing that would make some of today’s teachers cringe. His unorthodox swing got him into the Hall of Fame, six major championships and in Jack’s pocket plenty of times.  No one got the best of Jack in the majors more than the Merry Mex. Listen as he tells us his secret to solid… Continue Reading

An Early Tee Time for the PGA Championship

pga balt

In a major championship season that seems to be moving as fast as Jason Day’s driver we are prepping for the final major of the season. The 98th PGA Championship begins Thursday with some players still not over their jet lag from the Open Championship. Thanks to the Olympics and the condensed schedule our major season will be over at the end of the July. What may have been construed as the best option to fit the PGA Tour, the… Continue Reading

Past OPEN Champs Perform, or Not

The R&A ensures The OPEN  is the most accessible of the four major championships by using thirty nine separate qualification criteria in setting the field of one hundred fifty players.  First of these many roads to The OPEN is status as a past champion with an age limit up to sixty. Sixteen players are in the field by way of at least once hoisting the Claret Jug. Some have acquitted themselves well while most have struggled, with eight missing the… Continue Reading

Spieth’s Defeat More Mental Than Physical

Jordan Spieth may still be feeling the pain today from his final round disaster at The Masters. When you’re an elite golfer with his resolute mindset and you don’t preform it can sting for awhile. But he’ll be doing himself an great injustice if he continues to beat himself up for more that a day or two. Golf is hard. Tournament golf is harder. Major Championship golf is the hardest of all. And if he can remember back before the… Continue Reading

Cheers to Danny Willett & Jordan Spieth

I don’t know if Jordan Spieth or Danny Willett like to have a drink or two but after watching The Masters today I certainly think they both could use a nice strong one. I know after just watching them I need one. Willett certainly had reason to celebrate before he even teed off on Thursday. Having just become a dad to a baby boy. Having your first puts you on a cloud for quite awhile. If that isn’t reason enough… Continue Reading

Si Ri Pak has announced that the 2016 season will be her last playing on the LPGA Tour. Pak has fashioned a hall of fame career with 25 LPGA Titles and five major championships. But her impact goes far beyond her world class statistics. Pak burst on the the scene in 1998 as a rookie when she won four tournaments including two majors, the McDonald’s LPGA Championship and the U.S. Women’s Open. That season was the spark that ignited an… Continue Reading

Last Chance for Fame and Glory at The PGA Championship

This is a bittersweet week for any true golf fan. While we are thrilled to have another week with all the excitement and drama a major supplies this is the last major of the season. And with all due respect to the FedEx cup Playoffs, a major is a major. Certainly any win on the PGA Tour can change a player’s life but a victory at a major championship vaults a player to another level. We measure a player’s success… Continue Reading

Grand Slam: Four or Five Majors?

gs

Our great national controversy is over. The LPGA has released a statement that finally puts the question of what constitutes the “Grand Slam.” Sort of. With the LPGA’s history of changing sponsors and now naming five different championships as majors the debate whether the Grand Slam is now five majors rather than the traditional four has reached critical mass. With Inbee Park’s win at the Women’s British Open she has been correctly credited with the career grand slam. But the… Continue Reading

Jordan Spieth’s Great Day at Chambers Bay

Excitement, drama, suspense and a quality winner. That’s all we wish for at our major championships. The 115th U.S. Open gave us all of that and more as Jordan Spieth won and lost and then won his second consecutive major championship in both a spectacular and painful finish. The drama and excitement were provided by a quartet of golfers as Spieth, Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen and Dustin Johnson combined to give us an edge of the seat finish and then… Continue Reading

Nicklaus: It’s Always Been About Family

jack usga

I’ve been a Jack Nicklaus fan since I became interested in golf forty years ago.  So I was thrilled when I got the chance to get to see Nicklaus up close and personal. Along with 500 or so unabashedly passionate Nicklaus fans I attended the opening of the Jack Nicklaus Room at the USGA Museum at its headquarters in Far Hills, New Jersey. Jack, his wife Barbara and all but one of his children were there as USGA President Tom… Continue Reading
