When players are slumping, and slumping is a relative term, they are searching for that magic fix. Unfortunately in most occasions that “fix” can take months to finally take hold so a player can dig himself out of his slump. Not so for Rory McIlroy.

Phil Mickelson has all the shots. In fact he has some shots no one else has and wouldn’t ever think of trying in competition. But then most golfers aren’t Phil. This is typical Phil.

Phil wants us all to know that he can do things with a golf ball that others… Continue Reading

2016 United States Ryder Cup Team Captain Announced

It’s déjà vu all over again. The PGA of America officially announced that Davis Love III would captain the 2016 Ryder Cup Team in an attempt to regain the cup from the dominating European Team.

10 Things I Think

by Jeff Skinner 1.  That is what they call a great bounce-back. Billy Horschel was ripped by many for “choking” when he chunked his approach at the 18th in Boston last week.

Call it redemption, call it payback or call it karma.… Continue Reading
