Tiger Makes Cut, Phil Needs More Gloves

tiger 2018

The big news out of San Diego and the Farmers Insurance Open is that Tiger Woods made the cut and will be around for the weekend to pump up the television ratings. Woods, while not sharp was able to hack it around Torrey Pines and heroically birdie his final hole to finish on the number at one under par. One of the other big draws this week is the hometown favorite Phil Mickelson. And Phil the Thrill did just that… Continue Reading

PGA Championship Picks…Glory’s Last Shot

pga balt

The PGA Championship starts today as we close out the major season a bit early. Those Olympics are screwing up everything…but that’s another rant. It wouldn’t be a major without the Links Life Golf Crew Picks so here we go. Fresh off his big win at the Open Championship is G. Rennie: So far this is the season of first time major winners and I think the trend is likely to continue. So my first three picks are from the… Continue Reading

AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am: The Good, Bad & Ugly

pebble 8th

Most golfers have that bucket list of courses that they would so love to play. A trip to Fife and St. Andrews is always near the top of any true golfer’s list. Just going to The Masters, forget playing Augusta National, is a staple on all our dream lists too. We all fantasize about taking a shot at the island green 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass without splashing one. And lately names like Bandon Dunes, Streamsong and Cabot Links are… Continue Reading

Chambers Bay: More Fun Than Faults

bleachers 18 chambers bay

Fill in the blank. The 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay was _______. The answer certainly depends on who is responding. Some players might say it was a travesty. Some called it all tricked up. While the most popular cry was an indictment of the greens and some players were ready to indict Mike Davis who was the main man responsible for the controversial setup. If a ticket buying fan was filling in the blank the response might have been… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1.  Some will ridicule Brandt Snedeker for breaking down and fighting back the tears after his win at Pebble Beach. Not me, I think it is great. Emotion is so much a part of our lives and our game it’s fine with me. Sneds has become the tour’s new Steve Stricker who cried each time he spoke into a microphone. 2.  Dustin Johnson is rounding into form after his six month sabbatical. After a missed cut last week he finished… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

chees

1.  I am not a fan of playoffs in golf. To me it is anti-climatic. Watching two guys replay eighteen isn’t exciting it’s boring. You would think it would be thrilling since it is match play at that point but it never is. There is too much time to fill and I am sure those television producers feel the same. 2.  Losing two of golf’s greats in a week is tough. Billy Casper and Charlie Sifford both made their mark… Continue Reading

glover woods

Watching the Farmer’s Insurance Open this weekend we got to see some faces that haven’t been near the top of the leaderboard for awhile. Charles Howell III, Nick Watney, J.J. Henry and he of the great nickname, Johnny Vegas all got some television time as they tried to win at Torrey Pines. Another player that got some TV time, and he wish he hadn’t was Lucas Glover. Glover struggled mightily with his putter and yipped his way to a 77… Continue Reading

Tiger Woods in Phoenix? Not a Surprise

According to Eamon Lynch and Coleman McDowell Tiger will return to competition at the 2015 Waste Management Open in Phoenix.  They cite “sources” claiming that Woods has reserved his… Continue Reading

3 Wishes for 2014 PGA Tour Season

by Jeff Skinner Today marks the sixth anniversary of Links Life Golf.  I can’t believe it has been five full years since my son convinced me to start this up.  I was recovering from shoulder surgery and spent all night hacking out my first post with one hand.  After that I was hooked and it’s all been fun. 2014 brings a new season no matter what the PGA Tour says.  This PGA Tour season is filled with dozens of great… Continue Reading
