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) […]

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), […]

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.
