Selecting a team for the Ryder Cup is not the most difficult task every two years, but pairing teammates and knowing who to match them against is no easy feat. Since golf is an individual sport 99% of the time, there’s no good formula for putting a team together that can ensure winning results. For Captains, the difficulty of picking players is slightly lessened because there areRead More

The third week of the FedEx Cup Playoffs is moving week. Just as any typical tournament during the season sees contenders move into contention on Saturday’s, the BMW Championship takes that role in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. The only difference is you’re either in or you’re out when the TOUR Championship starts. A golfer can’t put together a magical Sunday andRead More

The Open Championship, or the British Open as we so affectionately call it here in the United States, is the biggest toss up for me every year when ranking the field of a major championship. The low-but-rising sweeping drives we see every weekend on the PGA Tour will not be showcased for four days at Royal Liverpool.

We’re past the midway point of the PGA Tour season and to me it’s been an interesting year. Both majors have been essentially blow outs, but have had underlying stories and drama to give them a boost. Tiger Woods has been gone with injury, or out of contention when in tournaments. The vital youth movement within the Tour is thriving, but not converting the big opportunitiesRead More

One important factor when making a tee time is to check the weather to make sure playing a round of golf will actually be enjoyable. You might think, “Hey, it’s the middle of May, the worst thing that could happen would be a rain shower.” And, unfortunately, you would be wrong.
It was high time for me to get back on the links this week, as a I had a little lullRead More
