pga balt

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

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

“Nae Wind, Nae Rain” Great Golf at St. Andrews

144 open

But with the weather delays we are headed for a Monday finish. Oh, if it can only live up to today. Almost everyone was able to get… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1.  All right, I can’t take it anymore. That Omega watch commercial with Rory McIlroy has pushed me to the edge. Is it too much to ask for a different song or something from the Omega people? I’ve heard that so much I want to jump off one of those Dubai skyscrapers.  2.  The Monday finish of the Honda Classic was the most exciting golf of the tournament. The weather certainly fouled up the weekend and the Monday golf while… Continue Reading

Paddy Harrington Survives to Win The Honda Classic

harrington

Padraig Harrington began the restart at today’s Honda Classic at two under par, five shots off the lead and seemingly out of contention. With so many good players between him and the lead his chances were slight at best. But that’s why they play the game and an amazing string of four straight birdies from 11-14 brought the three time major champion right into the mix. Of course Paddy doesn’t like to do things the easy way. He splashed his… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  All in all it was a great week at The Match Play.  I know it may be a difficult format for television and sponsors but for real golf fans it is so much fun. 2.  We saw Jason Day play the way we all have been waiting for and we got an up close look at the latest and greatest French export, Victor Dubuisson.  He’s his own man, not your typical golfer, and we will be… Continue Reading

Rory McIlroy Takes on a Robot

by Jeff Skinner The European Tour’s new advertising campaign is pretty creative.  First we had Paddy Harrington bombing it at the cart guy and now we have Rory McIlroy in a skills challenge against an Iron Byron like robot named Jeff.  It’s really funny. Hat tip to Emily Kay at SB Nation.

Tianlang Guan & John Paramor Prove The Masters Is Truly Different

by Jeff Skinner As the golf world recoils from the shocking slow play penalty called on a young Tianlang Guan at The Masters a few things are abundantly clear. First and most evident after all the screaming and protesting settled is that Tianlang Guan, a fourteen year old child in a field of powerful men, is an amazing young man. It isn’t just his skill with a golf club that separates this youngster from the crowd but his class, dignity… Continue Reading
