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

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

THE PLAYERS Championship opened up the second round today and if the first round is any indication of what is to come, we're in for a solid weekend of golf.
Roberto Castro, in his debut at TPC Sawgrass, tied the course record with an opening round 63 (-9) and closed the day with a three shot lead. If that's not confidence building, I don't know what is.
But, one round a golf tournament does not ma...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

One day is in the books at Augusta National and though weather played a small factor in how the course played for the morning and afternoon groups, it wasn't going to make a difference for Lee Westwood.
Westwood finished atop the leaderboard - his first time in this position after the first round of any major - at -5, one stroke ahead of Peter Hanson. Unless you've been living under a rock as a gol...Read More

In 2012, we’ve seen a moustached man named Johnson Wagner win a tournament. We’ve seen Tiger Woods finish third overseas and strong signs that he’s on the winning track once again. Stever Stricker, Mark Wilson, Brandt Snedeker and Kyle Stanley have all claimed trophies.
What we have yet to see is some celebrity pairings that will thrust the golf world into the national spotlight should one of the A...Read More

Ladies and gentleman of the golf world, the new year is upon us and that can mean only one thing... we just survived the shortest offseason in professional sports and the PGA Tour is back!
Each December I do a good job of complaining about how much I'm going to go through a golf depression once the season ends but since 2011 was a Presidents Cup year, we only truly had to endure 42 without golf on ...

Tiger Woods didn't single-handedly win the Presidents Cup for the United States team, but the reaction from his teammates after he closed out Aaron Baddeley on the back-9 at Royal Melbourne would suggest otherwise.
It was a redemption of sorts for Woods, who clinched the Cup for the US for the second straight time. Following nearly two years of poor play on Tour, Woods needed a good four days of g...

One tournament is in the books and three remain before the 2011 FedEx Cup champion is crowned. This week, 198 golfers will tee it up in the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston.
Our opening round was greeted with a visit from Hurricane Irene that shortened the tournament to 54 holes and made for a high level of "play fast and get the heck out here" rounds. Dustin Johnson won The Barclays, thus...

It's playoff time on the PGA Tour and that can mean only one thing… if you plan on watching any of the next four tournaments, get ready to be bombarded by FedEx commercials.
Actually, it means quite a few more things, but most importantly that I have to figure out who's going to win this thing. Something about these next four tournaments being playoffs makes picking an overall winner feel just as ...
