I was joined by Yahoo! Sports’ Shane Bacon on Wednesday evening to talk about golf’s year in review, along with what we’re looking forward to this week at Tiger Woods’ World Challenge and in 2014. We like Rory to go on a run of wins, we think Adam Scott will stay in fine form and we’re wondering if Tiger or Phil Mickelson will win another major first. We also take a look at the young, rising talent with Jordan Spieth and Hideki Matsuyama, among others.
We also answered some of of your questions. Thanks as always to those who submitted them. Please keep ’em coming.
(Apologies for my embarrassing sniffles — it was really quite unfortunate and unattractive and I tried to keep it contained, but naturally, I didn’t receive much cooperation!)
Before I jetted down to Atlanta for the Tour Championship, GNN’s Ryan Ballengee joined me to discuss Zach Johnson’s win at the BMW Championship, Jim Furyk’s 59 and Tiger Woods and Oscillate-Gate, along with a quick preview of this week’s Tour Championship. We also chat about the big news that was officially announced earlier today.
By the way, Ballengee and I still need a name for our weekly Hangout show. Suggestions welcome!
Welcome back to #WUPHangouts! If you haven’t seen one before, it’s a live video chat with a guest or sometimes it’s just me, talking about all the latest topics in the golf world (or whatever I feel like). You can watch it in real time or afterwards on YouTube. At the end, I usually take questions that you can ask via Twitter and I/we answer as many as possible.
I was joined by Ryan Ballengee of the Golf News Net and we had a lively discussion on the thrashing the Americans took from the Europeans in the Solheim Cup, Patrick Reed beating Jordan Spieth in a playoff at the Wyndham Championship, the Presidents Cup and Fred Couples’ potential captain’s picks, and finally, the FedExCup Playoffs, which starts with this week at The Barclays at Liberty National — where it was held in 2009 and wasn’t received well by the pros, but apparently many changes have been made in the last four years, so we’ll hear their reviews soon.
Oh, I haven’t ironed out the details yet, but I’ll start a “mailbag” of some sort in the upcoming weeks, where I’ll answer some of your questions via the Hangouts and/or in written form in a post. Because I do get some interesting emails… Stay tuned!
Apparently I’m an idiot and need to learn how to copy and paste properly. Thanks to the astute reader who pointed out that I tweeted the incorrect link.
Well, most of you properly missed the Hangout, but good news is you can watch it now. Bad news is I ramble. God, these things are awkward when you’re multitasking!
Thanks everyone for all the questions on the Tiger vs. Sergio saga, which went from being amusing to just bad after Sergio made a racist remark. I’m pretty much done with it, but I have a feeling this is not going to be the last we hear of the incident.
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!
Well, that was a thrilling finish! Last night when I was writing my preview post for today, the headline I had type was: “One for the ages.” For some reason, I changed it, but turned out, this Masters really was one for the ages.
Hello there! This evening I’m joined by Oliver Horovitz, author of “An American Caddie in St. Andrews.” We talk about the highlights in the first round of this year’s edition of The Masters. If today was a preview of things to come the rest of the week, then we’re in for an epic finish! We have a 14-year-old, 53-year-old and Sergio Garcia, among others as first-round storylines. It doesn’t get much better!
Pardon my rambling in this Hangout — I’m not used to doing these alone. It’ll be better going forward, I promise (and once I get more reps, which I’ve heard are important!). Thanks as always for watching and special shout-out to those who asked questions. You guys rock.
