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.

For… Continue Reading
I feel for those golf fans that were unable to watch the end of The PLAYERS as it was the best finish of the year.

Rickie Fowler showed that he is indeed a world class player and for sure a world class guy. Check out how he simply dominated the most famous par three in golf, the island green 17th… Continue Reading

Tim Finchem and his cronies would like us all to think that the tour isn’t just a business, technically a non-profit business that consists of a bunch of one percenters flying around the country playing golf for a living and counting their millions.

Rory McIlroy earned his tenth PGA Tour win and second World Golf Championship with his 4 & 2 win over Gary Woodland.
