tiger driver 2

The Tiger Woods Watch has reached DEFCON 1 as the entire sports world awaits his return. There are rumblings that Tiger will make his umpteenth come back appearance at each and every tournament on the PGA Tour schedule. While the scene of his comeback is still a mystery the fact that he is close to being healthy isn’t. He’s been seen hitting balls at clinics and course openings and a few insiders have witnessed Woods go after the ball at… Continue Reading

Lucky Men at The Presidents Cup

pre logo

As the Presidents Cup teams head home to add their team golf bag and other paraphernalia to their trophy room I can’t help but think that the Americans were blessed with a bit of luck this past week. The old saying goes “I rather be lucky than good” and these three men should be thankful for a little bit of luck they shared at the Presidents Cup. First off is our man Phil “The Thrill” Mickelson. Now, by all accounts… Continue Reading

Rory & Tiger In New Nike Commercial

BMW Championship - Round One

Say what you will about the behemoth that is Nike. I have grown tired of their domination especially with the thousand or so uniforms they dream up for Oregon. But they do come up with some unique commercials. Their latest is this Rory McIlroy/Tiger Woods piece that shows a young Rory looking up to Tiger. If you a golfer in your twenties Tiger is the ultimate. No player dominated like Woods but as this ad shows there is another force… Continue Reading

I remember watching the NCAA Final last season as the University of Alabama completed its back to back championship run. It was pretty compelling stuff as the young men on both Alabama and Oklahoma State left it all on the course. One of the most interesting aspects of the match was the fact that the former Head Golf Coach at OK ST. was now coaching at Alabama as an assistant. Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel pens a wonderful piece… Continue Reading

Team USA Takes Fourballs…Cuts Euro’s Lead

by Jeff Skinner The morning fourball matches closed with the team of Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker earning a tough half point from Rory McIlroy and Ian Poulter. Fowler’s eagle putt stopped just short of the hole and thereby cut the USA comeback a bit shorter than Captain Tom Watson had hoped. Team USA was able to pick up a full point on the European Team taking the morning session at Gleneagles 2 ½ to 1½. That still leaves Europe… Continue Reading

Tiger-Less PGA Doing Just Fine

by Jeff Skinner Yesterday’s third round at the PGA Championship was about as exciting as a round of golf can get. There was plenty of action with big names and young up and comers doing battle all afternoon. The only way it could have more exciting was if it had been the final round. And that’s what we expect today. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Phil Mickelson are three of the most popular names in the game and there are many… Continue Reading

Its Rory’s World

by Jeff Skinner Rory McIlroy sat in the locker room at Royal Liverpool spying his name on the Claret Jug just below that of Phil Mickelson. And when he looked further he saw Tiger Woods’ name in three spots and the names of all the greats that have survived and won the Open Championship. But while he appreciated the past winners this was a day to live in the present and look to his future. And the future for Rory… Continue Reading

Michelle Wie Celebrates Like Few Can

by Jeff Skinner I am not the biggest TMZ fan and I didn’t even know they had a TMZ Sports section. Here they caught Michelle Wie as she lugged the U.S. Open Trophy around New York City. Michelle even gives up the goods on her neighbor, Michael Jordan who she took some cash off of on the golf course. And you have to check out Michelle celebrating on the night of her win. She let us know it took 21… Continue Reading

Lucy Li Has Fun at U.S. Women’s Open

by Jeff Skinner From afar Lucy Li’s scorecard may look like the youngster had a disappointing day. To the uninformed it may appear like an opening 8 over par 78 in the U.S. Women’s Open would mean a demoralizing start. But this is Lucy Li. A precocious eleven year old who isn’t here to make history but rather to have fun. So even though she started her day with a double bogey 7 and had plenty of trouble on the… Continue Reading
