Dufner waggles his way to victory

April 30th, 2012 · No Comments

Jason Dufner waggled his way to his first PGA Tour victory at the Zurich Classic. In doing so, the likeable and low key veteran erased just a bit of the pain from recent Sunday failures and, most importantly, from his playoff loss to Keegan Bradley at last year’s PGA Championship. Dufner is now one for […]

Feinstein vs. Kuselias on public fines

April 26th, 2012 · No Comments

In a duel between golf’s two most opinionated sportscasters, John Feinstein scored a knockout over the Morning Drive’s Eric Kuselias. Feinstein believes in making fines public. “The only reason to have them is as a deterrent. What you don’t want to have are repeat offenders.” Kuselias, on the other hand, thinks that if fines are […]

Should the PGA Tour’s disciplinary actions be made public?

April 25th, 2012 · 3 Comments

The case for making the pro tour’s disciplinary actions public has been bandied about of late in the wake of Tiger Woods’ club kicking outburst on the 16th tee of the Masters. Morning Drive’s Gary Williams and guests such as Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam, Jason Sobel, Tony Dovolani, and Frank Nobilo are all in […]

Surprise: Kuselias is dead wrong – again!

April 24th, 2012 · No Comments

Who is the best LPGA Player without a major? This question was asked on Golf’s Channel’s front nine this morning. Erik Kuselias blurted out, in his uniquely super hyped up style, that it is Lexi Thompson, aged 17. Case closed. Never mind that the best player to have never won a major always refers to […]

The Haney Project

April 23rd, 2012 · No Comments

You may be under the impression that The Haney Project is a celebrity driven TV show on Golf Channel. And you would be right! However, it turns out that the original Haney Project was a book, not a TV show. Just listen to Butch Harmon, who spoke out this weekend against Haney and his bestselling […]

Pettersson’s win does nothing for golf

April 17th, 2012 · No Comments

The golf media must play the hand they are dealt. And so, as expected, you got to see those cheery interviews with Carl Pettersson and the positive coverage following his victory at the RBC Heritage. “What great play tee-to-green,” “overlooked star,” “should be on Europe’s Ryder Cup team” were among the stock comments that were […]

Bubba Golf wins the Masters

April 9th, 2012 · No Comments

Bubba Watson wins the 2012 Masters! Did you see this one coming? I sure didn’t because I believed Bubba, who said he would be very nervous, and the commentators, who also felt that his nerves would betray him. Shows what we know. And then there was that stat that said 19 of the last 21 […]

Masters form chart for the final round

April 8th, 2012 · No Comments

A grand total of 19 winners in the last 21 Masters have come from the final group on Sunday. That means that you’d be crazy to bet on anyone but Phil Mickelson or Peter Hanson. Or, it could that this is one of those stats that, once mentioned, fails to predict the outcome. If you […]

Praying for Couples to implode on Moving Day

April 7th, 2012 · No Comments

I know, I know. Everyone loves thirty-six hole Masters co-leader Frederick “Freddy” Couples. But as far as I’m concerned, the day good old Freddy went belly up was the day that he sold out, and lost his cool forever. Now, in the words of Ernie Els, Couples must be a “cheater” because he uses a […]
