2018 Wish List

The PGA Tour starts in earnest today as The Sentry Tournament of Champions honors last seasons winners this week and is followed by 2018’s first full field event next week on Oahu at the Sony Open. I can’t help but hope for another trip to Hawaii sometime soon but for now I am left with just my hopes for the pro tours in 2018. Here are some things I am hoping we get to see this season. Can Rickie Fowler… Continue Reading

Golf In Paradise Can Warm Frozen North

It’s that time of year again. As we here in the Northeast brace for another bout of record cold temperatures our focus turns from extra sweaters and icy sidewalks to that classic winter tradition that warms all of us:golf from Hawaii. We start the golfing year (this is he real start for me, unlike the PGA Tour) this week with the Sentry Tournament of Champions from the picturesque island of Maui and the iconic Plantation Course at Kapalua. Most of… Continue Reading

There were some big happenings around the world in golf this weekend as players follow the sun as 2016 winds down. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Justin Thomas staged a final round comeback to successfully defend his title at the CIMB Classic. Thomas was money for the first two rounds (64, 66) and led the tournament until a horrid streak at the turn during the third round where he dropped four strokes to par over three holes. But he found his… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…Ryder Cup Style

1. After the USA Ryder Cup Team closed out their victory Davis Love III joked that all he did was “write some names down and drive a cart around.” But he was there as captain for a reason. The Task Force, including Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk who were on that losing team in 2012 felt they failed their captain and he deserved another shot. He got it and he did exactly the same thing he did in… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…PGA Championship Style

Jimmy Walker

Golf is a strange game. Jimmy Walker wasn’t on anyone’s hot list coming into the PGA Championship. His 2016 season hadn’t been anything special. He had managed only three top tens with five missed cuts including the the U.S. Open and the Open Championship. And then he goes out and takes the PGA in a wire to wire win. What a strange game and what a week for Walker. After years of winless seasons Walker started to win soon after… Continue Reading

Jimmy Walker continued the 2016 trend of first time major winners at the PGA Championship today with his one shot victory over defending champ Jason Day. Danny Willett started the season with his Masters win and Dustin Johnson captured the U.S. Open for his first major. Just two weeks ago Henrik Stenson dazzled at the Open Championship and today Walker made it a quartet of first time major winners. The last time we saw all four majors go to first… Continue Reading

It was a hot day in jersey as the players at the PGA Championship sweated their way around Baltusrol. Surprisingly, some big names were feeling the heat and failed to capitalize on a course that was ripe for a low score. Here are some Hots and some Not So Hots from Thursday’s golf. Hot: Jimmy Walker shot an opening round 65, his lowest ever in a major to earn a one shot lead at five under par. Little know Emiliano… Continue Reading

The PGA Championship starts today as we close out the major season a bit early. Those Olympics are screwing up everything…but that’s another rant. It wouldn’t be a major without the Links Life Golf Crew Picks so here we go. Fresh off his big win at the Open Championship is G. Rennie: So far this is the season of first time major winners and I think the trend is likely to continue. So my first three picks are from the… Continue Reading

The Rory Story

rory open press

With controversy swirling at Royal Troon in the wake of statements from two of golf’s top players it’s time to cut through the PR and marketing BS and speak plainly. Rory got it right and we all owe him a big “Thank You”for his candor even though it’s come a bit late and has become a distraction on the eve of the OPEN. None of the elite golfers in our game  (or any golfer, for that mater) has grown up… Continue Reading
