A Love Story: Stacy Lewis & Arkansas

by Jeff Skinner The dream season on the LPGA Tour continued yesterday at the WalMart NW Arkansas Championship. Michelle Wie was the story early in the week with back to back 66’s but the week of celebration may have took its toll on the 2014 U.S. Open champion as she faded with a 73 and toppled down the leaderboard. But that left the stage open for a host of players to make a charge. And charge they did. Angela Stanford… Continue Reading

Chip Shots

by Jeff Skinner I am glad to see that I am not the only golf addict that won’t let the calendar interfere with my golf.  President Obama took advantage of some warm weather and was able to hit the links on Sunday.  With the warm weather heading to the Northeast I’ll be doing the same thing on Tuesday.  Partly cloudy with a high of 60 degrees is fine with me. Heck, I was out there in 40 degrees last week. … Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  Is there anyone more fun to watch then Rory McIlroy right now?  The kid drives it a mile, hits Nicklaus like long irons, has a short game like Phil and putts like Tiger in his prime.  And he’s polite, honest and cheerful and almost too good to be true. 2.  Lee Westwood is disappointed with is T2 finish at The BMW but for a guy that once swore off the FedEx Cup it sure agrees with… Continue Reading

Phil Mickelson Biggest Win? Not The Masters

by Jeff Skinner While Tiger Woods avoided the media center and declined to take part in a pre-tournament press conference, instead posting a video on his website, Phil Mickelson took a few minutes to sit down and answer real questions at The Wells Fargo Championship yesterday. Phil is never one to miss a chance at the wise crack either, “Didn’t you guys see my video?” he asked the collective media before he got to the microphone.(Click here for the link… Continue Reading

Thoughts from the Rough, Deep Rough

by Jeff Skinner Am I the only one that had enough of the Tavistock Cup?  Yes, it is nice to see golf, good golf, but this event has run its course if you ask me.  The celebration of excess that surrounds this two day party is just a bit much for me.  When they first started televising this “club championship” it was a kick to see the pros in a more relaxed atmosphere at their own clubs, no matter how… Continue Reading
