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 are only three picks...Read 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 and win.
Following the BMW Championship, the ...Read More

The FedEx Cup Playoffs are here and if you’re looking for a favorite, look no further than Rory McIlroy. Checking all the stats from last year and how golfer’s fair historically over this four week playoff run is usually a good place to start, but when the worlds No. 1 ranked golfer is coming off three straight wins that includes two major championships, it’s pretty easy to pick an overall favorit...Read More

We’re a day away from the start of the FedEx Cup Championship, but it’s hard to have The Barclays on your mind when you’re reflecting on this summer of golf.
Rory McIlroy broke off his engagement, then went on to win the British Open, Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship back-to-back-to-back. I bet Caroline Wozniacki is really loving all of this. Nothing like your ex-fiance taking over th...Read More

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 opportunities they’ve been given.

The prestige of a golf major can be felt simply by looking at a calendar. It makes a four-day stretch pop out as if it was marked with golden stars on each of the dates.
I had to be reminded by my calendar that Sunday is Father’s Day (sorry, Old Man), but I knew The U.S. Open was happening Thursday-Sunday without needing a reminder. My golf instincts (and probably the fact that I write and tweet a...Read More

I have a special relationship with TPC Sawgrass that was forged through Tiger Woods video games and grows each year on my television. It’s the first big tournament after The Masters, which means we get a great field playing on a course that is made for TV golf drama.
Someone is going to end up in the water on No. 17. It’s a 100%, Grade-A fact. I, for one, can’t wait to see who it is and how it aff...Read More

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 high reward birdies and never faltered.
As f...Read 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 tee box this weekend, b...Read More
