Ten Things I Think…Ryder Cup Style

ryder-16

1. After the USA Ryder Cup Team closed out their victory Davis Love III joked that all he did was “write some names down and drive a cart around.” But he was there as captain for a reason. The Task Force, including Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk who were on that losing team in 2012 felt they failed their captain and he deserved another shot. He got it and he did exactly the same thing he did in… Continue Reading

Soft, rain soaked conditions at Baltusrol had many expecting lights-out, record breaking scoring to be the order of the day, a day which saw both the completion of the third and fourth rounds of the 98th PGA Championship. But the pundits’, including Phil Mickelson, were all proved wrong, as the lowest score posted by anyone in the field was a 65. Dutchman Joost Luiten and the Dane Soren Kjeldsen both finished with 5 under rounds of 65 and ended tied… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…PGA Championship Style

Jimmy Walker

Golf is a strange game. Jimmy Walker wasn’t on anyone’s hot list coming into the PGA Championship. His 2016 season hadn’t been anything special. He had managed only three top tens with five missed cuts including the the U.S. Open and the Open Championship. And then he goes out and takes the PGA in a wire to wire win. What a strange game and what a week for Walker. After years of winless seasons Walker started to win soon after… 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…PLAYERS Style

day players 2

1. I think Jason Day’s win at The PLAYERS was damn impressive. He took apart TPC Sawgrass the first two rounds with a 63-66 start. If the Tour doesn’t screw up the greens on Saturday he could have made a run at Greg Norman’s PLAYERS record of -24. 2. Day is a fun player to watch as he rips at the ball with a ferocity few players can manage. But he used his head this week and backed off the… Continue Reading

players flag

The PLAYERS Championship starts today and if the finish can compare to last year’s Rickie Fowler coming out party we are in for a treat. But the debate still rages: Is The PLAYERS the fifth major? The PGA Tour’s marquee event has struggled to be held in major championship status to the consternation of Commissioner Tim Finchem. He has tried everything he could. The PLAYERS has the biggest purse in all of golf, $10.5 million with a cool $1.89 mil… Continue Reading
