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’ disaster at Torrey

January 26th, 2014 · No Comments

Woods said Torrey Pines was like a US Open with the rough up and the lack of rain causing the greens to be hard and fast. These conditions should have been right up his alley considering that won the 2008 U.S. Open in similar conditions that led to a winning score of 283, one under. […]

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 […]

May 13th, 2013 · Comments Off

After capturing The PLAYERS, Tiger Woods has now done everything on his comeback BUT win a major. His other three wins this year were impressive – any win is – but they came on his pet tracks in regular PGA Tour events at Torrey Pines, Doral, and Bay Hill, courses that are perfectly suited to […]

Bishop and the PGA Tour going against their base on the anchoring ban

May 1st, 2013 · Comments Off

Ted Bishop of the PGA keeps whining about the anchoring ban, and how bad it will be for the game. And, oddly enough, 13 of the PGA Tour’s 15 member players committee also voted again the ban. Are these guys totally clueless or what? Bishop thinks the ban will hurt the game’s growth. Never mind […]

Can Woods still win the majors?

March 11th, 2013 · 6 Comments

Following his command performance in winning at Doral this weekend, it would be tempting to say that Tiger Woods is officially back. Woods has won 3 of his last 15 starts last year on the PGA Tour. He has won 2 of 4 starts in 2013 on the PGA Tour. He’s won 5 of his […]

Tiger Woods shows off his slow play advantage

March 10th, 2013 · 1 Comment

The rules officials allow Tiger Woods to play as slowly as he wants to. Exhibit A came on the fourth hole at Doral in yesterday’s third round of the Cadillac Championship. After blasting his long first putt 18 feet past the cup, Tiger got it in his mind that he was not going to take […]

Phil “Lefty” Mickelson was all right

February 4th, 2013 · No Comments

Phil Mickelson opened the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 59.5, his 25 foot putt on his final hole dipping half way into the cup before completing a 270 degree lip out. He followed this up with rounds of 65, 64, and 67 on the par 71 TPC Scottsdale course to notch his fourth wire-to-wire […]
