Home of Woods vs. Nicklaus – Golf's Greatest Rivalry

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 ties Nicklaus at the PGA

August 12th, 2011 · No Comments

Tiger Woods Misses the Cut After 10 holes Woods was seven over for the tournament, so he had an outside chance of making the cut if he played the final seven in three under. But a double on 11 ended his chances of playing the weekend. To his credit, he continued to grind away until […]

PGA could decide the Player of the Year

August 10th, 2011 · No Comments

Glory’s Last Shot is also the candidates for the Player of the Years’ last chance to bag a major and possibly put a stranglehold on the top spot. The double major winners deserve it method points towards Charl Schwartzel, Rory McIlroy, and Darren Clarke. The winners of the first three are obviously the only players […]

The Real Golfers vs. The Wand Wavers at the WGC

August 6th, 2011 · 1 Comment

I love the long putter because it gives me villains to root against. In the days before the wand weavers had begun their takeover of pro golf, it was tough to find reasons to root against certain players. Let’s face it – golfers don’t give you many reasons to dislike them. But now, thanks to […]

Super longs shots lead the Open (for now)

July 14th, 2011 · No Comments

After the first round at the Open, a group of five players separated themselves from the rest by two or three shots with their 65s and 66s. After perusing their names, I would say that none has a much better chance of winning than before the round because this group of long shots faces 54 […]

Jason Day is due

July 8th, 2011 · No Comments

How is this for a career long progression in the majors? 60t – 10t – 2t – 2 That, my friends, is Jason Day’s entire career history in golf’s biggest championships. Four starts. No missed cuts. And every start produced a better result than the one preceding it, including a solo second at the U.S. […]

Rory Set to Open the McIlroy Era

June 18th, 2011 · No Comments

Yogi Berra once said “it’s not over till it’s over.” And he was right about this year’s Masters. But not this time, for there will be no stopping Rory McIlroy from claiming his first major on Sunday at the U.S Open. Not with an eight shot lead over his playing partner, Y.E. Yang, and a […]

McIlroy is Poised to Win his First Green Jacket

April 10th, 2011 · No Comments

After holing a curling 30 footer for a birdie on the seventeenth to take a commanding four shot lead going into Sunday, there is no doubt that the 2011 Masters is Rory McIlroy’s to win – or lose. Sorry for the cliché but it couldn’t apply more. For the last several years McIlroy’s been hailed […]

Tiger Woods Roars into Contention

April 8th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Is Tiger Woods back?  After a second round 66 that catapulted him into a tie for third, it’s hard to doubt him. But doubt him I did, along with almost the entire golfing world after his opening 71. But now, after removing the egg off our faces, we must admit that Tiger is Tiger, so […]
