rory-hear

The American Ryder Cup Team has finally broken Europe’s strangle hold on the Ryder Cup. For the first time since 2008 the Americans found a way to get out of its own way and beat a European team that always seemed to find a way to stifle the Americans. To a man each American player has said that this was a family of players, vice captains, caddies and others that found strength in each other and bought into repeat Captain… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think…Henrik Stenson Style

stenson sit

1. Henrik Stenson is a fitting and deserved Champion Golfer of the Year. A 63 on Sunday at The OPEN puts him in the history books and probably makes him an official Scotsman now. 2. He hit so many clutch shots its difficult to say what the most important one was. But his scramble from the rough on sixteen to scratch out a birdie when Mickelson was looking at an eagle putt was crucial. He avoided what could have been… 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

Lil’ Skins and G. Rennie both tied for first place with $1,147,000 even though they… Continue Reading

Drive, Chip & Putt…and Fun

PGA: Drive Chip and Putt Championship

The finals of the Drive, Chip and Putt have become one of my favorite Sundays of the golf season. Yes, soon I can stop counting the days until The… Continue Reading

This is a bittersweet week for any true golf fan. While we are thrilled to have another week with all the excitement and drama a major supplies this is the last major of the season. And with all due respect to the FedEx cup Playoffs, a major is a major. Certainly any win on the PGA Tour can change a player’s life but a victory at a major championship vaults a player to another level. We measure a player’s success… Continue Reading

Sneak Peek: St. Andrews Old Course No.17 & No.18

144th open

The closing two holes at St. Andrews are two of the most famous in all of golf. The instantly recognizable Road Hole is often called the toughest hole in championship golf. At 495 yards it’s a man size hole with man size challenges. An intimidating blind tee shot of hitting over the faux coal sheds is followed by a demanding approach to a small, tricky green guarded by the newly expanded Road Hole Bunker. And don’t forget the “road” and… Continue Reading
