When The Masters concluded on Sunday evening, I wasn’t surprised to see Bubba Watson getting the green jacket from Adam Scott. Watson was simply exceptional in the final round and if there’s one thing we know about Bubba it’s when he’s on, he’s really, really on. That was the case on Sunday. He was super long off the tee, converted some risky shots into highRead More

The 2013 US Open will return to Merion Golf Club for the first time since 1981. Starting Thursday, the current crop of the best golfers in the world will be treated to an old-school course rich in tradition, with closed oval-shaped baskets atop the pins instead of traditional flags.
Merion plays at just under 7,000 yards so golfers will not be challenged with length off the teeRead More

The first round of the NFL draft airs in prime time tonight and it got me thinking… if the PGA Tour had a draft with all current Tour players available, who would the first pick be? Better yet, what would the Top 10 look like?
Let’s say there are ten owners of “golf teams.” Each team gets one golfer and their statsRead More

What more can be said about The Masters that hasn’t been said already?
In reality, no words can do justice to the majestic scenery of Augusta National and no words can do justice to describe the battle PGA Tour golfers will face mentally and competitively over the course of four days.
The Masters speaks for itself.
The battle for victory is whereRead More

The day after every golf season is, I start a countdown. Holidays come and go, the weather turns to a winter apocalypse in Chicago, but I keep counting down the days.
On Thursday, that countdown reaches zero and FINALLY, THE MASTERS have come BACK to my television. For the millions (AND MILLIONS) of Augusta National’s fans, this is the greatest time of the year. TheRead More

We've gotten through a lot of Internet trends and memes over the last few years. Each explodes, then disappears in the matter of a few weeks. Remember the Harlem Shake?
What's different this time is a PGA Tour golfer is involved. His name is Jason Dufner.
It all started with this:

My intentions were to begin the New Year covering the first PGA Tour tournament of the year, the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, HI, but sometimes the wind just blows you in another direction.
In my lifetime, I don't ever recall so many delays on behalf of wind. I don't remember any wind delays, in fact, which makes the four day delay soRead More

The FedEx Cup used to be an extremely clunky playoff system that the media and fans treated with no reverance whatsoever. It didn't mean anything to win it other than the paycheck and the trophy. That's not how postseason sports are generally revered. It's not about the money - it's about the prestige, bragging rights and etching ones name into the archives as championRead More

I remember wishing Darren Clarke wouldn't win the British Open. It's a memory that quickly took a 180, as I found myself pulling for the Irishman down the stretch last year. It wasn't that I had anything against Clarke, I just really wanted Phil Mickelson or Dustin Johnson to get a win for the U.S. I had a sliver of hope that Anthony Kim was making a career comeback at the rightRead More
