Larry Fitzgerald and his division champion Phoenix Cardinals have the week off waiting for their next opponent, my money says it’s the Packers, so maybe Larry has a chance to get in a round or two. While Fitzgerald is an avid golfer and member of the exclusive Whisper Rock Golf Club, home to a dozen PGA players, his golf skills aren’t on the same level as his NFL talents.  He carries a 13.9 handicap but tallied 109 receptions this season for… Continue Reading

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.

by Jeff Skinner Phil Mickelson isn’t afraid to mix things up a bit. Whether it’s his golf bag or The President’s Cup or doing battle with Rees Jones or the USGA, Phil takes his best shot and sticks out his chin.  This is the guy that tries out more clubs than a hacker at a Demo Day.  Last week he told Fred Couples he better pick Keegan Bradley.  At The PGA Championship he called out Rees Jones and remember when… Continue Reading
