Great Leaderboard at the PGA Championship

by Jeff Skinner It was amazing day at the 96th PGA Championship. With a water logged Valhalla allowing the world’s best to throw darts at the soft greens we were treated to a marvelous display of golf. It was a true birdie-fest as player after player posted sub-par rounds which has resulted in a jammed packed leaderboard filled with big names, young studs and even some newcomers. How gettable was Valhalla today? Very gettable. 74 players teed it up today… Continue Reading

by Jeff Skinner In 2012 Bubba Watson became an American folk hero when he won The Masters.  Bubba’s road to the green jacket took an unlikely detour, through the woods on the tenth hole.  On the second hole of his playoff with Charl Schwartzel he hit one of the most amazing and historic shots in Masters history. The guys at Sports Science were as amazed as we were with Bubba’s miracle shot.  They break down the physics of Bubba’s improbable… Continue Reading

Patrick Reed Wins Playoff at Wyndham

by Jeff Skinner Patrick Reed’s final hole of the Wyndham Championship is a microcosm of his brief time on the PGA Tour. He won his first PGA Tour event with a shot that came out of nowhere, just like he has, well sort of. After Reed and Jordan Spieth tied on the first playoff hole Reed’s tee ball on the second hole landed a few feet from being out of bounds.  With a difficult lie and a horrible stance he… Continue Reading

Sergio vs Tiger at The Players Championship

by Jeff Skinner Everywhere Tiger Woods goes he usually gathers a crowd and on the golf course it’s always a noisy crowd.  Sergio Garcia felt the brunt of being paired with Tiger at The Players and wasn’t too happy about it. It seems that on the second hole while Tiger and Sergio were separated by about 50 yards Sergio was disturbed by the crowd surrounding Tiger.  As Sergio was in his back swing, Tiger pulled a fairway wood from his… Continue Reading

Jose Manuel Lara DQ’d as Caddie Tries to Hide Extra Club

by Jeff Skinner Sometimes golfers don’t think straight on the course.  How many times have you done something you regret like slamming a club after a bad shot or playing way too fast after you just shanked a chip only to repeat that very same shank? Well, this is about as dumb a story as I have heard in a long time.  It seems that Jose Manuel Lara and his caddie unknowingly started round one of the European Tour’s BMW… Continue Reading

Donald vs McIlroy: Advantage Rory

by Jeff Skinner Rory McIlroy recovered from a poor start at The Dubai World Championship but managed to settle down for a sizzling back nine to pull away from Luke Donald.  McIlroy committed the ultimate sin for a professional when he double bogeyed the par five second hole.  He did mange three birdies on the front to pair with his double and a bogey at the eighth and went to the tenth tee at even par. McIlroy then composed himself… Continue Reading

Thoughts From The Deutsche Bank Championship

by Jeff Skinner Webb Simpson putted like a fiend down the stretch: long birdie on 18 in regulation and two clutch putts in the playoffs to give him his second PGA win. Someone on the PGA Tour needs to let Simpson’s wife know to control herself while on camera and her husband’s opponent makes a poor play.  That’s “bush league” for sure. Adam Scott’s putting has certainly improved with his long putter.  But that stance of his looks so uncomfortable.… Continue Reading
