Fred Couples possesses an outstanding golfing resume, but he’s in denial if he believes local knowledge is not just an advantage, but a necessity at Royal Melbourne. (continue reading…)
Steve Stricker and Tiger Woods looked defenseless against the resilient International tandem of Adam Scott and K.J. Choi in the opening match of the President’s Cup at Royal Melbourne Golf Course.
The beat-down was non-stop and the International Team needed just 12 holes to close the door on the Americans, 7&6. (continue reading…)
The FedExCup playoffs reminds me of soccer in the United States — it’s a nice idea, but it’s never realistically going to catch on.
Perhaps it’s the fact that many fans (and even players) are confused with how it all works. The seemingly arbitrary organization of the system revolves around position, points and payout. And when I say payout, I’m talking the big money, $10 million to be exact. (continue reading…)
The once up and coming Spaniard who seemed destined to take the golf world by storm with his meticulous mechanics, powerfully swift swing, and disarming smile has been a perpetual let-down over the last decade. Suffice to say, Sergio Garcia has been in repair. After his round Saturday at the BMW Championship, he can add to his “To-Do List” replacing his 3-wood, which he cracked in a bout of anger as he watched his shot go awry. (continue reading…)
Geoff Ogilvy has a major championship under his belt, three World Golf Championship titles, and over a decade of experience competing in golf around the world.
Bill Haas has none of those things. Ogilvy, the Aussie, and Haas, the American, are on nearly opposite ends of the spectrum when it comes to most things, but this week they are like two peas in a pod, or more aptly two golf balls in a sand trap as they vie for one of the final spots on their respective Presidents Cup teams.

Keegan Bradley is having one heck of a rookie season, to say the least. In May he won the Byron Nelson Championship, and just a few weeks ago, he staged a thrilling comeback at the PGA Championship to take home the Wanamaker Trophy in his first start at a major.
When asked in a press conference Tuesday what had been the biggest change in his life in the past two weeks, Keegan responded with complete candor. (continue reading…)
Over the last two years golf experts, commentators and fans have made an array of predictions about the future of Tiger Woods’ career, which range from complete collapse to total resurgence. In Tuesday’s press conference at The Barclays, the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs, the public finally got a candid perception about Woods from a player, and not just any player, but three-time major champion Padraig Harrington. (continue reading…)
What do you call it when the world’s most talented golfers totally throw caution to the wind and pummel their golf balls over a treacherous gully?
How about—awesome? (continue reading…)
Sore Hip. Achy back. Gusty winds. Two hour rain delay. For Freddie Couples – no problem.
Couples won the Senior Players Championship at Westchester Country Club Sunday, proving that even at the age of 51, he can still compete, contend and capture victories. (continue reading…)
There’s about as many positive things said about the FedExCup as there are about Tiger Woods’ 2011 season. Just after we were forced to come to terms with Woods’ unrecognizable (and mediocre) play, so too did we (re)learn how significant the seemingly arbitrary (though improved) design (earn a chance to win an inordinate, ridiculous and borderline disgusting prize of $10 million) of the FedExCup were last Sunday at the Wyndham Championship.
