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

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 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. Get used to seeing low screamers that roll for days or maybe even forever dependi...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

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 lull in my work schedule that would affor...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
