I think Rors is fed up with all the attention placed… Continue Reading

Surprisingly, some big names were feeling the heat and failed to capitalize on a course that was ripe for a low score. Here are some Hots and some Not So Hots from Thursday’s golf. Hot: Jimmy Walker shot an opening round 65, his lowest ever in a major to earn a one shot lead at five under par. Little know Emiliano… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1. Sunday started with the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and the Golf Channel team earned its money. They say you can have all four seasons in one day in Ireland and that’s just what happened. Rain, heavy rain, thunder, lightning, hail, (yes hail) were featured during the final round as Rory McIlroy surged and Danny Willett faded. And Willett finished up in sunshine and short sleeves on a day that’s a weatherman’s dream. Amazing. 2. What really was amazing… Continue Reading

Gerina Pillar Moving Towards That Elusive First Win

Gerina Pillar may have come up short in at the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout but this is a player who seems so very ready to win. We first heard of Pillar awhile back but she was billed as a member of the ”husband and wife” who both play professional golf. Indeed, her husband Martin is on the PGA Tour for his second full time season and the two of them were both in contention last week in their respective… Continue Reading

1. It goes to show you…you never know in this game. While all of us are crowning the twenty-somethings as the new Big 3 Adam Scott comes through and shows us what a 35 year old can do on a tough course. On Saturday with a quadruple bogey on fifteen he looked to have lost his chance. But a determined attitude and a new confidence with his putter allowed him to fight back and win for the first time since… Continue Reading

Lexi Thompson Dominates in Thailand

When Lexi Thompson turned professional the folks at Cobra/Puma jumped on her to endorse their products and be their female face of golf.  They saw the huge potential in the teenager that drove it as long as the boys.  And Thompson has lived up to their expectations and more. The 21 year old Thompson continued to impress with a dominating victory at the Honda LPGA Thailand for her seventh LPGA title and third in just seven months. Thompson cruised to… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1. I watched a lot of golf this week and one of the strangest things I saw was Jordan Spieth’s fill in caddie. His usual bag man, Mike Greller was home nursing a sore ankle. So his agent, Jay Dansi,the guy who signed him up to play Singapore was pressed into service as his caddie. It was hot, humid and the heat index was over 100. A bit of irony surrounded Dansi as he humped that bag around all week.… Continue Reading

Must Watch Golf…All Weekend

Usually on Monday morning I’ll cruise through the all the golf sites to get the inside story from the weekend. But this morning, quite frankly my head is spinning. What a crazy golf weekend. And it’s not over as the boys of the PGA Tour still have to complete the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open. It was a smorgasbord of golf and we got to see golf 24 hours a day as the tournaments circled the globe. It… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think

1.  It may have been lost in a weekend of world wide golf but cheers to Peter Senior for becoming the oldest ever winner of the Australian Masters. Senior who is 56 and a Champions Tour player beat a bunch of youngsters half his age for his third Masters title. Let’s hear it for the old guys. 2.  Rory McIlroy is about half Senior’s age and it was great to see him back in good form with his win in… Continue Reading
