Daniel Berger had a great 2014-2015 season.

He was named Rookie of the Year. But he didn’t win. That all changed today as the twenty three year old tour sophomore played more like a… Continue Reading

Rory McIlroy Wins in Dubai

Things are tough at the top.  That’s the case for world number three Rory McIlroy.  You know you are good when a four win season can be classified as a “down” year. McIlroy won the European Tour’s Tour Championship and with it the Race to Dubai (their version of the FedEx Cup) to give him four victories on the PGA and Euro tours in 2015.  But wins at the Wells Fargo, WGC-Match Play, Omega Dubai Classic and DP World Tour… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

oleson old course

 1. It was great getting another chance to see the old Course at St. Andrews again this weekend. I am sure Thorbjørn Olesen feels the same way. The Dane fought off the cold and a poor final round start to claim his second European tour title at The Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. 2. I don’t know which is cooler the fact that “Thorbjørn” actually means Thunder Bear in Danish or that his nickname is Thor. Either way he has some… Continue Reading

The long, hot summer of Jason Day continues. And while the summer has cooled off, Day hasn’t one bit. Day lapped the field today at the BMW Championship to finish with a six shot victory over Daniel Berger. Day’s lead was never really threatened as he maintained at least a four shot lead and finished with a flourish with birdies at sixteen and eighteen. The ’15 PGA Champion lead from wire to wire and earned his fourth win in his… Continue Reading

Lydia Ko: The Best Kept Secret in Sport

Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and the boys of the PGA Tour may dominate the headlines and garner all the attention in golf and that’s a shame. Contrary to popular thought it isn’t all about Tiger. It should be all about Lydia Ko, a seventeen year old that is breaking records and setting the sports world on its collective ass.  Ko won the Australian Women’s Open yesterday and proved once again that she is the best female golfer on the planet… Continue Reading

Exciting Final Weekend of Golf

For die hard golf fans it was one heck of a weekend. If you were willing to do a little overnight and early morning viewing there was some exciting golf to watch. And if you could pull yourself away from NFL Sunday the ladies of the LPGA provided another thrilling finish to their dream season. I was one of the few, the proud, the crazies that had the Golf Channel on for what seemed like 48 straight hours.  Like many… Continue Reading

The Handa marks the return of Jason Dufner back from his neck injury. Dufner was last on the course at the PGA Championship when he was forced… Continue Reading

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. Well there was none of that this week as he rebounded to win the BMW Championship. He said he didn’t let things like that bother him and knew it was just one bad swing at the wrong time. Call it redemption, call it payback or call it karma.… Continue Reading
