My Scotland Adventure

DSC00528

I am finally coming back down to earth after my two week trip to Scotland. And I don’t like it. My brother and I had two unbelievable weeks in the home of golf and being back in the real world isn’t cutting it. Frankly…it sucks. But I have figured out Flickr and have started to upload some pics and videos there so I can share our trip with my readers. Click here for my Flickr Pics. We spent a week… Continue Reading

Spieth Collapses…Willett Has the Time of His Life

Masters Champion Danny Willett of England during the Green Jacket Presentation after winning the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on Sunday April 10, 2016.

Sunday at The Masters is always special and memorable and today’s final round was both for a myriad of reasons. With all the top players in the world playing so well coming into this week if just a few of them stayed in form the ’16 Masters was bound to be a good one. And the way things played out The Golden Child, Jordan Spieth was in the lead. His PGA Championship nemesis and world number one, Jason Day was… Continue Reading

We all will be treated to a full day of golf today as all the major tours are in action and being broadcast to us all day long. The gents of the European Tour made a great move in featuring links courses and scheduling the Scottish Open the week prior to the Open Championship.  The fields at the Scottish have become deeper and the courses have been spectacular.

10 Things I Think & More

PGA: WGC - Cadillac Championship-Final Round

1.  J.B Holmes’ 62 on Thursday was one amazing round of golf. The field averaged 73.4, over eleven shots greater than Holmes. Johnny Miller called it the best round on tour in the last twenty years. It was Holmes’ tournament to lose then, and he did. 2.  Holmes criticized the first hole at Doral after he said he hit two “perfect shots” and his ball rolled into the water. That’s called a “strategic hole” my friend and maybe Doral was… Continue Reading

Drive, Chip & Putt…Everyone Wins

by Jeff Skinner I spent this past Sunday doing my usual routine when I have a Sunday off.  I give myself a chance at breakfast, second breakfast, the New York Times, all the golf websites and of course The Golf Channel.  But this Sunday morning The Golf Channel was extra special.  The coverage of the Drive, Chip & Putt Championship was riveting television, well at least for me it was.  Drive Chip & Putt is the latest and I will… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think…Open Championship Style

by Jeff Skinner 1.  Earlier in his career Phil Mickelson had essentially given up on winning the Open Championship.  His game did not suit links style golf.  His decision to rework his game and develop the mindset to successfully navigate a links course paid off enormously at Muirfield and helped propel his legacy to an even higher level.  Old dogs can learn new tricks…it worked pretty well for Phil. 2.  Tiger Woods’ poor play on the weekends at majors continued. … Continue Reading

LLG Award Season: Event of the Year, Performance of the Year

by Jeff Skinner There were many great tournaments this season but the Ryder Cup was so earth shattering and exciting it easily tops all the other events.  The European comeback was by far the most exciting Sunday in golf this year and many say it could rank with the most exciting days in all of golf. With the Euros facing a four point deficit going into the final day of play any chance of retaining the cup looked extremely remote. … Continue Reading
