Tiger Woods, along with Graeme McDowell and Adam Scott, played a practice round at The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina, on Tuesday, for next week’s final major of the year, the PGA Championship, according to the tournament’s Twitter feed (which was also confirmed by the AP).

I should have posted this last Saturday and we are actually open now (well, sort of), but I just really wanted to post the picture above. I needed a few R&R days before returning to the grind with two big tourneys back-to-back — the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational (which will now be referred to as “Firestone”) and the final major of the year, the PGA Championship.
I doubt anyone noticed with the Olympics kicking off last weekend. I’m pretty sure at least half of you guys have been busy being outraged with NBC’s tape-delayed coverage that has forced you to ponder the unthinkable: STAYING OFF THE INTER-WEBS!
Look, I’m tired of the drama, too, but I’d also like to share some thought and insight before we move on. Plus, I disagree with Conor, who thinks I’m a sucker, on this matter, but from my vantage point, Steve Williams has changed. (continue reading…)
Tiger Woods arguably took the high road when asked about his former caddie Steve Williams’ controversial comments on Sunday following Adam Scott’s win at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Thing is, Tiger never says anything, so I’m not sure he should be praised. (continue reading…)
When Steve Williams walked through the 18th green on Sunday at Firestone and put the bag down, we watched to see if he would remove his caddie bib — which was customary for him when Tiger Woods was his boss (regardless of etiquette and the Tour’s request that caddies must leave them on until the scoring area). (continue reading…)
Adam Scott pulled away from the youth movement on the back nine on Sunday, cruising to an impressive four-shot victory at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. The 31-year-old Australian played nearly flawless golf, carding five birdies on his way to a bogey-free 65 at Firestone. (continue reading…)
Many of you watched David Feherty interview Steve Williams, the winning caddie, on the 18th green at Firestone after Adam Scott clinched the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.
I had to pick up my jaw off the green when I heard Stevie say, “Honestly, that’s the best week of my life. I’ve caddied for 33 years and 145 wins and that’s the best win I’ve ever had.” He also called himself a “very confident frontrunner.”
Better than the 13 major titles, 63 PGA Tour wins you had with Tiger Woods? Um, wow. Clearly, he was sticking the dagger into his former boss, who recently fired him after twelve-plus years of working together (this is a little “Inside Golf-y,” but player-caddie relationships can be analogous to a marriage, so this is like an ugly, very public divorce). (continue reading…)
Well, I don’t remember the last time I was this pumped up over a final-round leaderboard. It has the makings for an exciting finish, especially coming down to that great closing stretch of holes. At least it better! Of course, now I’ve probably jinxed it — someone is going to run away from the pack and it’ll be a huge bore! (continue reading…)
After some wayward drives caused him to drop a few shots in the middle of the third round, Adam Scott recovered rather nicely, rolling in four birdies in the last seven holes to take the outright lead at twelve-under. He holds a one-stroke advantage over 19-year-old Ryo Ishikawa and 23-year-old Jason Day, a fellow Aussie, going into Sunday at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. (continue reading…)
Ryo Ishikawa fired an impressive six-under 64 to ascend to a tied for second at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Prior to Ryo’s third-round press conference, we (the American media and golf fans) didn’t know much about the 19-year-old star from Japan. (continue reading…)
