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 […]

Today marks the fifth anniversary of my first post at Capelle On Golf. Wow, has that gone by fast! So much has taken place in the last half decade. Tiger Woods won the 2008 U.S. Open on a bum leg. Paddy won two while he was gone, giving him three majors. Phil and Ernie each […]

February 12th, 2013 · 2 Comments

Brandt Snedeker’s stock is soaring. He won $10 million for capturing last season’s FedExCup and nearly $15 mil in all. This season he’s won over $2.8 million, and his early season resume includes a third, two seconds, and a W at last weekend’s Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. In short, in the last five months Snedeker […]

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 […]

Golf Channel chooses the 16 All Time Greatest Players

January 23rd, 2013 · 8 Comments

Golf Channel is running an online tournament featuring the 16 greatest players of all time. Randall Mell wrote the article introducing the event, but I suspect that the players were ranked by the Golf Channel’s panel of “experts.” The players appear in brackets on their site, so I shuffled them to create Golf Channel’s Top […]

Mickelson has lost his mind

November 9th, 2012 · No Comments

I have been a Phil Mickelson fan from the day my fellow San Diegan turned pro in 1992. I have stuck with him through the lows, the illnesses, and the assorted meltdowns that have cost him three or more majors. Lately, however, I have become fearful that Lefty has lost his mind. The first sign […]

Miracle in Medinah AND The Choke in Chicago

October 1st, 2012 · 4 Comments

There were two teams competing for the 2012 Ryder Cup, and two very distinct stories, so this series of observations deserves a two sided headline Kaymer makes putt for a winning tie! When Martin Kaymer made a six footer on the 18th to beat Steve Sticker, he locked up a tie, and with it, a […]

Team USA poised to win first anchored putter assisted Ryder Cup*

September 30th, 2012 · No Comments

I will be rooting today for team USA, but not for Keegan Bradley, Webb Simpson, and Matt Kuchar, who have already made their mark on the 2012 Ryder Cup. After two days of play, the eight parings that featured one of these three players are 7-1, while the remaining eight matches have gone to the […]

And now, for the title of the personality with the biggest head in golf we have, in this corner, Greg Norman, the Great White Shark. In the other corner is Butch Harmon, instructor to the stars. Let’s start with Greg. Yesterday, while talking about the passing of the torch as the world’s best player, he […]

This Labor Day weekend they held a Boston Tee Party, and what a happening is was. Take the setting. The Tournament Players Club Boston is one of the most photogenic courses on tour – it’s got a reachable par five 18th, wild grasses of all colors, forests, water hazards, and it just looks great!
