Looks like Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn are serious. At least serious enough for Woods to bring the Olympic skier for a day on his yacht to spend quality time with his daughter Sam. (continue reading…)
No, I’m not kidding. So you’re probably wondering why the hell does Luke Donald have $80,000 worth of beef. Well, that’s easy! — last November, Luke Donald won the Dunlop Phoenix tournament in Miyazaki, Japan, where they breed cattle that live more luxuriously than you or I, so the winner receives a nice check and one of these delicious-tasting cows, according to ESPN.com’s Darren Rovell.

Honestly, I’m over this whole controversy. Which one? Oh, The Incident on the second hole in the third round of The Players Championship, where Sergio accused Tiger of purposely causing a disturbance. I mean, really! Well, I guess there’s a part of me that finds it comically intriguing. So, what’s the latest twist is this never-ending episode of the Real Housewives of the PGA Tour?
Contrary to the Sports Illustrated report on Monday that quoted two marshals saying they never spoke with Tiger or told him Sergio had already hit. Turns out a volunteer did talk to Tiger, but only after he had already pulled the 5-wood, which caused the crowd to react noisily and distract Sergio, according to The Jacksonville Times-Union‘s Garry Smits: (continue reading…)
Australian golf commentator Luke Elvy and I are back! I forgot to post this last night, ICYMI. We talked The Players Championship and Dropgate II and looked forward to next month’s U.S. Open, among other things. Check it!
Just when you thought this season of the Real Housewives of the PGA Tour, starring Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia, was over, there’s another twist. Nice work by SI’s Michael Bamberger, who tracked down the marshals working the second hole at TPC Sawgrass during the Players Championship, including Saturday when The Incident occurred. You know, the ones that supposedly told Tiger that Sergio had already hit, which led him to pull a club, resulting in the crowd to react and then distracting Sergio. (continue reading…)
At the risk of getting killed on the Internet and called a “Tiger hater,” I’m posting this because IT’S MY JOB, SO LEAVE ME THE EFF ALONE!
Besides, I’m a little late to the game because I didn’t think Tiger Woods’ drop on 14 was going to turn into Drop-gate, part deux. I know, silly me! I should know better. After all, Tiger farting is a big deal!
The way I see it is his playing partner told him the ball crossed farther up, so he was good, BUT at the same time, it’s up to the player to make the right call, as well. Basically, for rules nazis, Casey Wittenberg’s and Tiger’s words aren’t good enough for you. (Yes, I realize Tiger couldn’t know where it crossed because he looked away in disgust after he made contact.) (continue reading…)
Pardon the hiatus with the WUP Hangouts, which will be held more regularly once again going forward. Thanks to everyone for asking questions. Don’t forget, Luke Elvy and I will be bringing to you our show, “The Clubhouse,” tonight at 7pm EST. So get your questions and comments ready!
What a hell of a tournament! — whether it was Sergio Garcia and Tiger Woods throwing handbags at each other or dunking balls in water hazards at crucial points on Sunday or someone missing and making a game-changing putt, there was no shortage of drama at TPC Sawgrass.
In the end, Woods captured his 78th PGA Tour victory, only four shy of Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82, and his second Players Championship title, not to mention his fourth win of the year, marking the earliest he’s achieved that feat in any season. (continue reading…)
Heading into the famed 17th hole, Sergio Garcia had just tied his nemesis Tiger Woods by rolling in a birdie on the 16th. Garcia could feel the adrenaline running through him. He was striping the ball. He thought he might overshoot the green from 120 yards. Instead, his tee shot came up short and into the drink.
He re-teed and hit his wedge again. This time it reached land, but it wasn’t enough and bounced back into the pond. Ouch. (continue reading…)
