TIGER WOODS’ BIG DREAM QUIETLY COMES TO AN END

August 15th, 2015 · No Comments

At 8:18 CT Tiger Woods finished his second round of the PGA with a par to shoot a 4 over score of 148. He needed to shoot 146 (or better) to make the cut. With this most recent missed cut Woods has completed his 30s with 14 majors, 4 short of Jack Nicklaus’ record. As […]

Rickie Fowler to join Nicklaus and Woods at the PGA?

July 25th, 2014 · No Comments

Rickie Fowler has finished 5t, 2t, and 2t in the first three majors, setting himself up for the calendar year Top 5 Slam. So what, you say? No W? What is the big deal? Well, if Fowler finishes in the top five at the PGA, he will become only the third player to record a […]

Mickelson’s last shot

June 11th, 2014 · No Comments

Here is your preview for the 2014 U.S. Open: Phil Mickelson. Seriously, is there any other story that comes even close to Phil’s bid to win the Open, and to capture the Career Grand Slam? Okay, this is Johnny Miller’s final U.S. Open (we think) because Fox will take over broadcasting it next year. And […]

Let youth be served at the Masters

April 12th, 2014 · No Comments

Last weekend Lexi Thompson became the second youngest player to ever win a women’s major, capturing the Kraft-Nabisco at the ripe old age of 19 years and 55 days. Thompson’s win came on the heels of a third place showing at the 2013 Evian, the LPGA Tour’s fifth major. This weekend, PGA Tour winner Jordan […]

The Masters: who are you rooting for – and against?

April 11th, 2014 · No Comments

Like any fan, I suppose that you have those players who you root for – and possibly against! I know that I do and, as each round is completed, my list of potential heroes and villains becomes clearer still. My cliffs notes version for who I root for, and against, is as follows: For – […]

Nothing but Long Shots at the Masters

April 8th, 2014 · No Comments

When Tiger Woods is playing, he is always the favorite, and usually at ridiculously low odds, such as in a range from 3/1 to 5/1. But, as the whole golfing world knows, Woods is at home recuperating from surgery on his back last week. In his absence, we have nothing but longer shots (over 10/1), […]

Is Tiger Woods already feeling the pressure?

February 28th, 2014 · No Comments

Tiger Woods opened with a 71, 8 back of Rory McIlroy, and in a tie for 84th at the Honda Classic. The Honda is being played on PGA National, which is NOT one of his pet courses that he routinely wins at, and his lackluster performance comes on the heels of an 80t (at Torrey […]

Tiger Woods’ Last Stand

January 16th, 2014 · No Comments

Tiger Woods is running out of time. Sure, he may have 48 more starts in the majors before he turns 50, but only eight of those will be when he is in his thirties. Once he turns 40, the hill gets steeper – heck, it already has as evidenced by his five year long drought […]

Adam Scott will do anything to win majors

August 9th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Adam Scott seems to many like the nicest guy, but to me he is a scoundrel who will go to any lengths to win. A few years ago Steve Williams, his caddy, made racially insensitive remarks about Tiger Woods, his former employer. Many felt that Williams comments were so bad that Scott should definitely fire […]

Time for Tiger Woods to change his stripes

August 5th, 2013 · 10 Comments

Tiger Woods has gone and done it. He couldn’t be content to simply win the Bridgestone for the eighth time – he had to lap the field by seven shots, raising expectations to such lofty heights, at least amongst the media and the bettors, that Ladbrokes now has him at 3-1 for the PGA this […]
