Mickelson earns a “major” upgrade

July 22nd, 2013 · 4 Comments

Phil Mickelson’s closing 66, with four birdies on the last six holes, propelled him to his fifth major, and to a major upgrading by the entire golf community. Before the Open Mickelson was a great player and a member of the HOF. Even though he was tied with Ernie Els with four majors, he was […]

Woods and Mickelson on the brink of the British Open

July 17th, 2013 · No Comments

Tiger Woods Continues to be in Denial I wonder who Tiger Woods thinks he is fooling. At the pre British Open press conference he was asked what has kept him from winning majors over the last five years. Woods said “I think it’s just a shot here and there.” Actually he needs to add another […]

Jason Day’s day is coming

June 18th, 2013 · No Comments

Forget about all of the other young guns you have been reading about. Jason Day, 25, is unquestionably the second best player in the majors under the age of 30 – and that makes him second best in the world among the younger set as well. In his last nine starts in the majors, Day’s […]

Mickelson in the pole position on US Open Sunday at historic Merion

June 16th, 2013 · No Comments

Overall, I love Merion Golf Club. Strategically and visually this is a U.S. Open site of the highest caliber, one that rewards precision golf, and that eliminates the bomb and gougers of this world. Still, it has two major flaws, and these flaws cost leader Phil Mickelson two shots in the closing five holes, and […]

Woods and others seeking to make history at Merion

June 12th, 2013 · No Comments

Merion Golf Club is stepped in history, it being the site of the final leg of Bobby Jones’ Grand Slam, Ben Hogan’s comeback win in the 1951 U.S. Open, and Lee Trevino’s playoff victory over Jack Nicklaus in the 1971 U.S. Open, among others. It is therefore fitting that a number of players will be […]

The Yin and Yang of Tiger Woods’ massive effort to win majors

April 19th, 2013 · 1 Comment

“He (Woods) is maybe trying a little too hard.”  Mark O’Meara, GC, 4/19/13 Tiger Woods won majors because he tried so hard to win them. This was his greatest strength. He our practiced, out tried and, as a result, outplayed his rivals, willing in those crucial putts that make the difference between a W and […]

Poll shows that the fans oppose anchoring

April 17th, 2013 · No Comments

I hate it when the announcers at Golf Channel say stuff like “Everyone in golf is so happy that Adam Scott won the Masters.” Such a proclamation is beyond presumptuous, and it completely misses how those of us  who hate anchoring really felt about his victory. I, for one, was rooting hard for Jason Day […]

Woods adds a 4t to his body of work in the majors at the 2013 Masters

April 16th, 2013 · 9 Comments

I discovered a story on by the AP which featured this headline: “Woods leaves Masters empty-handed one more time.” I disagree, and I think Woods does to. Consider this from Woods: “I thought I really played well. … So overall it was a pretty good week.” So, while he didn’t win, Woods probably learned […]

Adam Scott wins* Masters with the chicken wing stance

April 15th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Masters champion Adam Scott looks like an athlete with that slim waste and those rock hard biceps that rival Tiger Woods’ at his muscle shirted best. And he’s got that gorgeous golf swing that has long been the envy of his peers, that is better than Rory McIlroy’s much heralded action, and that enabled him […]
