Time for Tiger Woods to change his stripes

August 5th, 2013 · 10 Comments

Tiger Woods has gone and done it. He couldn’t be content to simply win the Bridgestone for the eighth time – he had to lap the field by seven shots, raising expectations to such lofty heights, at least amongst the media and the bettors, that Ladbrokes now has him at 3-1 for the PGA this […]

Bishop and the PGA Tour going against their base on the anchoring ban

May 1st, 2013 · Comments Off

Ted Bishop of the PGA keeps whining about the anchoring ban, and how bad it will be for the game. And, oddly enough, 13 of the PGA Tour’s 15 member players committee also voted again the ban. Are these guys totally clueless or what? Bishop thinks the ban will hurt the game’s growth. Never mind […]

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.
