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.

This is turning out to be the year that being in contention at major championship doesn't really matter. Golfers on the PGA Tour have found themselves contending for second, because the leaders at 2014's majors have taken leads and run with them like they stole them.
Rory McIlroy followed in Bubba Watson (The Masters) and Martin Kaymer's (U.S. Open) footsteps on Sunday, taking a 6-shot lead into t...Read More

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

We are two days removed from Tiger Woods winning THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass and instead of looking ahead to the HP Byron Nelson Championship starting on Thursday, all you hear is outrage over TIger's latest sin on the golf course.
Let's enter the time machine... it's Saturday at THE PLAYERS on the Par 5 second hole. Sergio Garcia is standing over his ball and getting ready to swing an...Read More

What a difference one year makes.
At this time last year, Tiger Woods was abandoning the WGC-Cadillac Championship after just 11 holes due to an ailing left Achilles Tendon.
On Sunday, in the same tournament and on the same course, Woods completed all 72 holes in dominant fashion to win his 76th PGA Tour event of his career.
The World Golf Championships have been extra sweet to Woods. Since their i...Read More

It's playoff time on the PGA Tour.
Don't get excited for an NCAA Tournament, single-elimination, style contest though. This playoffs is spread out over the next month and it's based on a points system average golf fans most likely don't understand.
But, that's not the point. All you need to know is whoever has the most points after the TOUR Championship in September is the winner. Follow the tourn...Read More

The British Open became a perfect storm as play was winding down Sunday afternoon. It was a bogey-fest for Adam Scott as he shot his way out of contention for his first major championship in the last four holes. It was the round of a lifetime for Ernie Els, who capitalized on every opportunity down the stretch and became the unlikely champion. Els might be an older, grizzled veteran, but it's not ...Read More
