Golf in the Olympics…Big Whoop

rio golf

With golf being back in the Olympic Games this year there is much talk about the 2016 golf season being such a special year. All the effected parties are saying the politically correct thing with “growing the game” and “it’s an honor to represent your country” thrown about very often. I haven’t heard many dissenting voices when it comes to golf making its first appearance in the Olympics since 1904. So it has been 112 years since someone teed it… Continue Reading

Suzann Pettersen Speaks Her Mind

suzann pose

Tim Rosaforte had a great interview with Suzann Peterrsen on The Golf Channel last night. He asked all the right questions and she had all the right answers. Pettersen bared her soul and apologized for her Solheim Cup debacle. Much like her apology on Instagam the day after she seemed sincere and honestly distraught over the incident. It certainly doesn’t seem like this was an orchestrated public relations ploy just to manage her image. This is how you start to… Continue Reading

Friday’s Chip Shots

Brooks Koepka paired a second round 67 to go with his opening round 64 to take a one shot lead over youngster Austin Cook who is in just his third PGA Tour event. Koepka isn’t hitting a lot of fairways (13/28) at The FedEx St. Jude Classic but his iron play has been stellar hitting 78% of his Greens in Regulation. Personally, I hope Brooks isn’t peaking too early as I already have him slated as my Dark Horse pick… Continue Reading

Monday Morning Quarterback… Quick Six Points

by Jeff Skinner The delayed finish of the BMW Championship may be good news for Tiger Woods.  The two Monday finishes on the tour this year, The Farmers and the Arnold Palmer, were both won by Tiger. This Monday finish at the BMW does put a damper on the third leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.  But it does give the Tour just what it wanted when they designed this finish.  They won’t have to worry about going against the… Continue Reading
