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

Time to Make Some History at the PGA!

August 13th, 2015 · No Comments

The majors are always about making history, and the four players who can make the most significant impact on the record book are Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Zach Johnson, and Phil Mickelson. Spieth – If he wins his W-W-4t-W year in the majors would, IMO, be the best in the Modern Era (1958-now). Woods won […]

Mickelson’s last shot

June 11th, 2014 · No Comments

Here is your preview for the 2014 U.S. Open: Phil Mickelson. Seriously, is there any other story that comes even close to Phil’s bid to win the Open, and to capture the Career Grand Slam? Okay, this is Johnny Miller’s final U.S. Open (we think) because Fox will take over broadcasting it next year. And […]

Last weekend Lexi Thompson became the second youngest player to ever win a women’s major, capturing the Kraft-Nabisco at the ripe old age of 19 years and 55 days. Thompson’s win came on the heels of a third place showing at the 2013 Evian, the LPGA Tour’s fifth major. This weekend, PGA Tour winner Jordan […]

April 11th, 2014 · No Comments

Like any fan, I suppose that you have those players who you root for – and possibly against! I know that I do and, as each round is completed, my list of potential heroes and villains becomes clearer still. My cliffs notes version for who I root for, and against, is as follows: For – […]

Nothing but Long Shots at the Masters

April 8th, 2014 · No Comments

When Tiger Woods is playing, he is always the favorite, and usually at ridiculously low odds, such as in a range from 3/1 to 5/1. But, as the whole golfing world knows, Woods is at home recuperating from surgery on his back last week. In his absence, we have nothing but longer shots (over 10/1), […]

Woods and others seeking to make history at Merion

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 […]

Adam Scott wins* Masters with the chicken wing stance

April 15th, 2013 · 3 Comments

Masters champion Adam Scott looks like an athlete with that slim waste and those rock hard biceps that rival Tiger Woods’ at his muscle shirted best. And he’s got that gorgeous golf swing that has long been the envy of his peers, that is better than Rory McIlroy’s much heralded action, and that enabled him […]

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 […]

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 […]
