10 Things I Think…PLAYERS Style

day players 2

1. I think Jason Day’s win at The PLAYERS was damn impressive. He took apart TPC Sawgrass the first two rounds with a 63-66 start. If the Tour doesn’t screw up the greens on Saturday he could have made a run at Greg Norman’s PLAYERS record of -24. 2. Day is a fun player to watch as he rips at the ball with a ferocity few players can manage. But he used his head this week and backed off the… Continue Reading

Jason Day’s Impressive Win at The PLAYERS

day players trophy

Jason Day continued his dominating streak of golf today with his wire to wire win at The PLAYERS Championship. Since his win at the RBC Canadian Open last July Day has won in seven of his last seventeen starts. That’s a 41% victory rate, a number rarely seen in golf. It’s also his tenth PGA Tour win and that earns him membership in a special club. Since 1980 only four other players have won ten times before their 29th birthday:… Continue Reading

Day Leads PLAYERS after Record Tying 63

day players 16

The PLAYERS Championship opened just as one would expect…sort of. If you put the best golfer in the world on a firm fast course with soft greens and only a slight breeze he’s going to go low. But a 63…amazing. Jason Day played up to his ranking as the top golfer in the world and scorched TPC Sawgrass with a course record tying round that had him in the lead by two strokes on a day that let dozens of… Continue Reading

the players 2

Things really heat up at this week at The PLAYERS Championship as the best field of the year will tackle one of the most beguiling courses in the world. The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass was built to give the fans a great viewing experience while at the same time testing the golfers on each and every shot. It was one of the best finishes in the PLAYERS history last year as Rickie Fowler answered his “overrated” critics with a… Continue Reading

AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: The Good, Bad & Ugly

pebble 8th

Most golfers have that bucket list of courses that they would so love to play. A trip to Fife and St. Andrews is always near the top of any true golfer’s list. Just going to The Masters, forget playing Augusta National, is a staple on all our dream lists too. We all fantasize about taking a shot at the island green 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass without splashing one. And lately names like Bandon Dunes, Streamsong and Cabot Links are… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think…PLAYERS Style

rickie trophy players

1.  Say what you will about Pete Dye’s Sawgrass, and plenty do, it certainly allows for excitement down the stretch. And they certainly gave it to us yesterday. 2.  The sheer quality of the play, from just about everyone on the back nine was so impressive. These guys are good, really good. 3.  I have said it before: I don’t like playoffs. Hockey yes, golf no. They are always anticlimactic. Yesterday was an exception, a great exception and one we… Continue Reading

Rickie Fowler’s Classy Finish at The PLAYERS

The Monday Morning Hangover from The PLAYERS we all have comes with a big smile and it’s just not on Rickie Fowler’s face. Sunday at TPC Sawgrass gave us all we could handle. For pure big name recognition the leaderboard lacked the big headliner but was so jammed we knew something had to happen. But we have seen this before: players fail to rise to the occasion and more end up playing poorly and the champion backs into a win.… Continue Reading

Rickie Fowler Dominates the 17th at Sawgrass

rickie players

I feel for those golf fans that were unable to watch the end of The PLAYERS as it was the best finish of the year.  Some are calling it the best PLAYERS ever while others can’t recall a tournament that had such a dramatic finish. Rickie Fowler showed that he is indeed a world class player and for sure a world class guy. Check out how he simply dominated the most famous par three in golf, the island green 17th… Continue Reading

The PLAYERS Primed for a Crazy Finish

THE PLAYERS Championship - Round Two

The stage is set for a wild Sunday at The PLAYERS with a leaderboard so crowded it’s anyone’s guess who will claim this victory. Chris Kirk has a one shot lead over the most tightly packed leaderboard of the season. There are thirty players within five shots of the lead and plenty more right behind them. But this PLAYERS has a different look from previous years. Kirk, himself no household name leads a group of lesser known players with a… Continue Reading

Chip Shots from The PLAYERS

na 15 players

Jordan Spieth misses the cut. Boy Wonder had a great run while it lasted but it was bound to end sometime. The mano y mano, Rory vs Jordan Death Match will have to wait. Phil Mickelson now has seven missed cuts at The PLAYERS to just three top tens. TPC Sawgrass is one tough course and it had Phil talking to himself,” I was thinking to myself as I was walking around, I can’t believe I’ve actually won here.” Next… Continue Reading
