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 […]

Jordan Spieth should be at the Old Course right now!!

July 7th, 2015 · No Comments

Jordan Spieth has a chance to win to become the first ever to win the modern day Grand Slam. Only Spieth (in June), Arnold Palmer (1961), Jack Nicklaus (1972), and Tiger Woods (2002) have won the first two legs of the Grand Slam since 1958. There are two schools of thought regarding his preparations: 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 […]

Tiger Woods just kills me!

December 11th, 2013 · No Comments

The quotable Tiger Woods is a real hoot. In a post round interview following his shocking loss to Zach Johnson at the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge (complete with WGR points), Tiger was asked to assess his year. His response: “Pretty damn good year.” For any other player it was just that. Five PGA Tour wins, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Inbee Park is 3/4 of her way to The Real Grand Slam

July 2nd, 2013 · No Comments

O.B. Keeler, Bobby Jones’s close friend and biographer, had a knack for coining phrases and catchy slogans that would glorify Jones’s achievements, but none was more grandiose and false than the Grand Slam. Prior to Jones winning the two Opens and two Amateurs in 1930 there was no such thing.  So Keeler put 2 and […]
