pga balt

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

Week two of the ’16 PGA Tour season stays in paradise this week at The Sony Open played over the Waialae Country Club on Oahu. Spending a few evenings watching golf from Hawaii makes me anxious to get back on the course again. It seems like the Sony Open has been around forever but it only started in 1999.

spieth scruffy

Jordan Spieth is having a Woodsian run this season. His PGA Tour summary: 4 wins, 3 seconds, 1 third, 11 top tens, 14 top twenty fives and over $8.7 million.

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and the boys of the PGA Tour may dominate the headlines and garner all the attention in golf and that’s a shame. Contrary to popular thought it isn’t all about Tiger. It should be all about Lydia Ko, a seventeen year old that is breaking records and setting the sports world on its collective ass.  Ko won the Australian Women’s Open yesterday and proved once again that she is the best female golfer on the planet… Continue Reading

It’s been a long time coming for Christina Kim. The last time Kim won on the LPGA was nine years ago at something called the Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions.
