Winners & Losers at the PGA Championship

by Jeff Skinner Winner:  Of course Jason Dufner was the biggest winner at Oak Hill.  Grabbing your first major, breaking the course record and shooting 63 gives you that winning feeling for sure.  But if you watched any of the post round interviews with Duf you saw and heard an intelligent, thoughtful and humble winner. Loser (in name only): They say second place is the first loser but I think in Jim Furyk’s case he proved he still had game. … Continue Reading

I thought to myself how a storm like this would affect the cleanup crews at The Travelers Championship as this… Continue Reading

But with rounds of 78 and 76 Wie wasn’t able to make the cut at The Lotte Championship.  She played the Ko Olina Golf Course like it was the first time she had seen it instead of the course where she spent… Continue Reading

Answers From the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

by Jeff Skinner As Steve Williams continues to bask in Adam Scott’s spotlight let’s revisit the “Questions at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational” that I proposed last week. First question was “What will Tiger gives us?”  The answer: not much.  For any rational player, coming off an injury and a long layoff, four rounds of healthy golf would have been satisfactory.  But not in Tiger’s eyes.  He may have been disappointed by his one over par finish but he shouldn’t be.  Baby… Continue Reading

Rotella Can Get Your Head Right

by Jeff Skinner My golf season is well under way and even though the weather in the Northeast can still play havoc with our tee times, we all have had enough opportunities to find our game.  Unfortunately, not all of my game was there to be found.  I’ve spent plenty of time on the practice range to get my old muscles back in the swing of things.  Unlike most golfers I won’t spend hours pumping drivers out on the range. … Continue Reading
