The 2017 golf season is here and as we golf fanatics look towards the future there are plenty of questions for the upcoming season. Jaime Diaz of Golf World poses a few of those in his piece,”Golf’s 10 Biggest Questions for 2017.” He starts off with who will be the best player and names a few of the top players as candidates but my money is on Rory McIlroy. I think Rors is fed up with all the attention placed… Continue Reading

2017 Brings New Golf Deals

woods-balls

Ah, 2017 has arrived and with it a new golf season. Sorry PGA Tour, the calendar still dictates to me when a new year begins not the slew of fall tournaments that are (in)conveniently assigned to the next year…that doesn’t work for me. This new year brings with it not only the fresh hopes of every golfer both pro and amateur but there have been a ton of new equipment and endorsement deals among the big names in the game.… Continue Reading

Four Rounds, No Pain = Success for Tiger

tw-driver

Tiger Woods may have finished fifteenth out of eighteen golfers this week and stumbled with his final round 76 but as strange as it may sound his week at the Hero World Challenge was a success. True, Tiger always plays with the expectation of winning and would normally never consider looking up at fourteen golfers a successful week but it certainly was. Stats wise he was hitting the ball a long ways, finding plenty of fairways, stiffing his irons and… Continue Reading

Matsuyama Takes Hero World Challenge

The boys at NBC and The Golf Channel were hoping for a charge from Tiger Woods today at the Hero World Challenge but it was not to be. Woods was too far back to make it interesting and he had the poorest round of his comeback week. Hideki Matsuyama was the man instead as he continued his superb recent play and topped this elite field of golfers. Matsuyama finished his week with a one over 73 but that was enough… Continue Reading

The Fist Pump Is Back

It didn’t take long for Tiger Woods to start feeling like his ol’ bad ass self. Tiger took his game a step further today with his bogey free 7 under 65 that had him moving up the leaderboard at the Hero World Challenge and he even broke out his classic fist pump. His wasn’t the lowest round of the day, Bubba Watson had a 63, nor was it the second lowest, Brandt Snedeker shot 64 but for Woods who is… Continue Reading

Holmes Leads but All Eyes on Tiger at The Hero

J.B. Holmes was the real hero today in the Bahamas but of course it was Tiger Woods we all tuned in to see. Holmes leads the elite field at the Hero World Challenge after a smoking 8 under 64 which included seven birds an eagle and a lone bogey at the opening hole. An impressive display of late season golf for sure. But it was Woods that was the “star” of the show. Woods gave us a bit of everything,… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods Always Moves the Needle

You may have stashed your clubs away for the winter and the calendar is certainly closer to St. Nick than St. Andrews but this is a big week in golf. No, it’s not a major or a playoff or anything close but this week Tiger Woods is back on the course. And that’s a big deal no matter what time of year it is. Tiger may be the host of his Hero World Challenge at the exclusive Albany Golf Club… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods Talks to Charlie Rose

Tiger Woods, or should I say the new Tiger Woods is talking.  Woods who just announced the formation of his new Tiger Woods Ventures with his “TGR” logo looks to be out promoting his brand. He spent some time with Charlie Rose and he’ll appear on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. Woods tells Rose that he doesn’t think he’ll finish with 18 majors.  In true Woodsian fashion he says he’ll finish with more. Tiger’s umpteenth comeback was stunted… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…Ryder Cup Style

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

At This Ryder Cup….Let the Players Play

ryder-16

The Ryder Cup was started by Samuel Ryder, a wealthy seed merchant with hopes of an exhibition that promoted the game of golf and the sportsmanship and camaraderie that goes along with it. I don’t think he would recognize it today. Since 1979 when all of Europe was added to the original Great Britain & Ireland Team the matches became competitive but the buildup and pressure surrounding the Ryder Cup has gone over the top. With the passing of Arnold… Continue Reading
