The 2017 golf season is here and as we golf fanatics look towards the future there are plenty of questions for the upcoming season.

Friday’s Chip Shots

Brooks Koepka paired a second round 67 to go with his opening round 64 to take a one shot lead over youngster Austin Cook who is in just his third PGA Tour event. Koepka isn’t hitting a lot of fairways (13/28) at The FedEx St. Jude Classic but his iron play has been stellar hitting 78% of his Greens in Regulation. Personally, I hope Brooks isn’t peaking too early as I already have him slated as my Dark Horse pick… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think

1.  I really enjoy playoffs…hockey playoffs, golf playoffs not so much. But yesterday’s overtime battle between David Lingmerth and Justin Rose was good theater.

Especially with Rose’s young son Leo cheering dad on…cute as hell. 2.  Lingmerth certainly looked composed down the stretch. His expression never changed and you couldn’t tell if his shot split the fairway or buried in a bunker.… Continue Reading

A Love Story: Stacy Lewis & Arkansas

by Jeff Skinner The dream season on the LPGA Tour continued yesterday at the WalMart NW Arkansas Championship. Michelle Wie was the story early in the week with back to back 66’s but the week of celebration may have took its toll on the 2014 U.S. Open champion as she faded with a 73 and toppled down the leaderboard. But that left the stage open for a host of players to make a charge. And charge they did. Angela Stanford… Continue Reading

Michelle Wie Leads an Exciting U.S. Women’s Open

by Jeff Skinner The 2014 golf season just keeps getting better for the LPGA. With new tournaments, new sponsors, fresh new faces and plenty of publicity the U.S. Women’s Open started with much anticipation. So far it hasn’t disappointed at all. With the women following the men at Pinehurst No.2 Mike Whan couldn’t have written a better script for the first two rounds. He should send the USGA a big thank you note. The week started with plenty of buzz… Continue Reading
