Bubba Watson’s Almost Ryder Cup Cover

bubba-watson-usa

They say timing is everything. And sometimes they, whoever they are…are right. But for the good folks at Golf Magazine timing didn’t quite work out this month. I pulled my issue from the mailbox and gazed down upon their Ryder Cup Preview Issue. There is nothing like the Ryder Cup and I am sure they spent many hours putting this issue together. But even the best laid plans of editors and reporters often go awry. Front and center on the… Continue Reading

Jordan Spieth has had Enough of the Negative Media

open 145th

As Jordan Spieth continues to struggle to find his 2015 form he says he’s grown tired of the negative questions from the media.  Spieth looked frustrated on Royal Troon today as his tee game, ball striking and especially putting showed little resemble to the form that he displayed last season. Let’s face it: 2015 with two major wins, five overall, a Tour Championship and a FedEx Cup check is a tough act to follow. But Spieth, like Tiger Woods is… Continue Reading

The Rory Story

rory open press

With controversy swirling at Royal Troon in the wake of statements from two of golf’s top players it’s time to cut through the PR and marketing BS and speak plainly. Rory got it right and we all owe him a big “Thank You”for his candor even though it’s come a bit late and has become a distraction on the eve of the OPEN. None of the elite golfers in our game  (or any golfer, for that mater) has grown up… Continue Reading

In what seemed like a Ryder Cup atmosphere at the K Club, hometown favorite Rory McIlroy finally got into the winners circle in Ireland as he powered his way to an emotional win at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. McIlroy, winless since last season’s DP World Tour Championship, has seen Jason Day and Jordan Spieth garner most of the press recently as he slipped to third in the world rankings.  But McIlroy was determined to do something about it at his… Continue Reading

Rory McIlroy Wins in Dubai

rory dubai 15

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

The Old “Fall Series” Still Alive and Well

fall series

When the PGA Tour decided to rewrite the calendar and make their season a “wrap-around” season that encompassed two calendar years I, like many protested. The Fall Series, the tournaments after the FedEx Cup Playoffs and before the Tournament of Champions in January had been a kind of mini-tour school. The big name players rarely played them, full FedEx Cup points were not awarded to the winner and the winner’s paycheck never approached a million dollars. This allowed the fields… 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
