I spent too much time watching the Golf Channel at all hours of the night hoping to catch some great golf and I wasn’t disappointed. First up was ’17 Masters champ Sergio Garcia with a five shot win at the Asian Tour’s SMBC Singapore Open. Sergio is riding high as he carries that green jacket around and has a new-found confident, relaxed… Continue Reading

Unfortunately it’s all about the NFL now and Ko’s miraculous win gets buried by the beast that is the NFL. 2. Ko is an amazing story and should be getting some more mainstream media coverage. But it doesn’t matter to her. She… Continue Reading

Spieth & McIlroy: Our Next Rivalry?

British Open Golf

In the afterglow of Jordan Spieth’s historic win at The Masters it is easy to get all giddy about what Jordan Spieth can do for golf.

The “next one” just evolves. He grows and blossoms after tests, and trials and years… Continue Reading
