A Crazy Sports Weekend & Those Damn Patriots

rahm

It was a wild weekend for golf as we saw some big names earn wins around the globe. I spent too much time watching the Golf Channel at all hours of the night hoping to catch some great golf and I wasn’t disappointed. First up was ’17 Masters champ Sergio Garcia with a five shot win at the Asian Tour’s SMBC Singapore Open. Sergio is riding high as he carries that green jacket around and has a new-found confident, relaxed… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

every palmer

1.  Matt Every played some clutch golf on Sunday at The Arnold Palmer Invitational. A 66 and the most clutch of clutch putts on eighteen. That’s how you close out a round.  2.  The only thing missing from Arnie’s stop was the rare double eagle. Then we get two in one tournament: Daniel Berger on Saturday and Zack Johnson on Sunday, amazing. 3.  I love Lydia Ko and all she brings to the LPGA. She’s talented, humble and gets it.… Continue Reading

Villegas & Freddy Win but Arnie Is Still The King

by Jeff Skinner Sunday brought us some wonderful golf on the PGA and Champions Tours. I feel for those that think Tiger and Phil are the only reason to follow the tours.  Camilo Villegas topped a youthful leader board at The Honda which was studded with familiar names that could dominate the tours this season and even take home a few major championships.  Villegas, the Columbian heartthrob, took home his first trophy since 2008 and second place finisher; Anthony Kim… Continue Reading

Kim & Villegas Lead Honda Classic

Looks like the Florida swing has passed through the fountain of youth as two youngsters, Camilo Villegas and Anthony Kim have found their form of 2008 when they both won twice and looked to be the future of the PGA Tour.  They sit at -8 and lead The Honda Classic but Vijay Singh seems to have taken a drink from that fountain of youth also as he is only one back.  Feel good story of the day: Sam Saunders (Arnie’s… Continue Reading

Great Golf, All Over the World

There is so much exciting golf happening this weekend it is difficult to keep up on all that is going on. I’ve been surfin the web for all the news I can get on all these tournaments throughout the world. Good news, bad news for some big family names at the first stage of Q-School. Gary Nicklaus, Sam Saunders (Arnie’s grandson), Danny Lee and Tadd Fujikawa all failed to advance to the second round. Jay Haas Jr. made it through… Continue Reading
