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 […]

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 Golf.com 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 […]

Tiger Woods record could have an asterisk now

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 […]

Golf Channel’s rankings go beyond major wins only
