Open Championship Preview: Holes 16, 17, 18

open 145th

The last three holes at Royal Troon starts with a birdie opportunity at the par 5, 554 yard sixteenth hole.  In 2004 it played as the easiest hole on the course. A burn crosses the fairway and will challenge golfers to clear it with any wind at all.  The large green is surrounded by those deep, painful bunkers. The par 3 seventeenth normally faces into the wind and at 220 yards players may need a driver to have any chance… Continue Reading

It was an exciting finish at the Wells Fargo Championship with James Hahn earning the win over Roberto Castro on the first playoff hole. Hahn had it to ten under par but an untimely bogey on the difficult 18th hole dropped him back into a tie with Castro.

Sunday at The Masters: It’s All Up to Jordan

masters flag hole

It’s been an odd week at Augusta National and The Masters. The usual roars and cheers have been replaced by gasps and murmurs. Last year we watched as Jordan Spieth went deep, real deep and tied Tiger Woods’s record winning score of 18 under par. This year he is only three under and the top four players stand a combined seven under par going into the final round. This has been one very difficult week at Augusta. Firm, very firm… Continue Reading

We’ve all seen the CBS footage many times but here’s a look at the… Continue Reading
