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!

Here now, we have a screen grab from one of Geoff Shackelford’s readers of Tiger Woods and the incident during the second round that resulted in a two-stroke penalty (go here for the video footage). Here’s the ball before Woods started meddling with the loose impediments around it and after.

Zach rallies for the win

Zach rallies for the win

And then there were 30 — that is, players who will advance to the FedExCup Playoff finale at East Lake GC in Atlanta. Several guys came through in the clutch and played their way into the Tour Championship, and several others didn’t have the best of weeks and were bumped out of the top 30 in the FEC points rankings.

Zach Johnson fired a six-under 65 to shoot 16-under total and win the weather-delayed BMW Championship on Monday by two shots over Nick Watney.

Fifty-effing-nine!

Fifty-effing-nine!

Jim Furyk shot a sizzling 12-under 59 to become only the sixth player to post golf’s magic number during the second round of the BMW Championship.

Furyk, who started on no. 10, posted six birdies and an eagle on the back nine (his first) for an eight-under 28 at Conway Farms — which matched Phil Mickelson’s effort two weeks ago in the first round of the Deutsche Bank Championship (but Phil had to settle with a 63).

The question was whether Furyk could carry over the momentum on the next nine holes and control his nerves to achieve such a remarkable feat.

The Golf News Net’s Ryan Ballengee joined me to chat about our thoughts and reactions to the Presidents Cup captains’ picks by Fred Couples for Team USA and Nick Price for the Internationals. Tune in. We are super insightful.

Oh, by the way, Ballengee and I are going to make this a regular program. We’re still undecided on the name, but we’ll be doing these regularly on Tuesdays, and you should tune in because next week we might get into a fight or two and have a surprise guest!

Anyway, leave your thoughts and comments below.

The Picks

The Picks

After Phil Mickelson played with Jordan Spieth on Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship and watched the 20-year-old phenom fire 62, he was impressed, to say the least. Mickelson was so impressed with Spieth that he sent a text almost immediately after they signed their scorecards to Fred Couples, captain of the U.S. Presidents Cup team, that said:  ”Dude, you’ve got to pick this guy.”

Two years after losing a five-shot lead with four to play at the 2011 PGA Championship — and nearly handing the Wanamaker Trophy to Keegan Bradley — Jason Dufner wasn’t going to let that happen again. Nope, not this time Oak Hill.

It wasn’t exactly the most thrilling finish on the planet (and compared to the first three majors in 2013, it was a snoozefest). In fact, it was pretty boring and resembled the monotonous, unchanging expression on Dufner’s face, so it was only fitting for the lack of excitement coming down the stretch and the six-inch tap-in on the 18th for the two-shot win over Jim Furyk.

The Stense

Heading into the final round of the PGA Championship, the last major of the year, Jim Furyk (-9) and Jason Dufner (-8) are sitting 1-2 on the leaderboard, which means the two Americans are playing together in the final pairing.

With Phil Mickelson (who will already be halfway home to San Diego) and Tiger Woods so far out of the mix, Furyk and Dufner are sharing the big, bright spotlight in what will (hopefully) be a high-drama finale. But, I’m here to tell you, the golf fans, why you should be rooting for Henrik Stenson.

I know what you’re thinking. WTF? The weird Swedish guy? He’s not an exciting winner! Nor even close to the most deserving! WRONG.

No, not there!

No, not there!

Before Tiger Woods even hit his first tee shot at Oak Hill at the PGA Championship, everyone and their baby mamma were absolutely 110% certain that this was THE week. You know, the one where he’d finally quit horsing around on Sundays and leave the field in the dust on his way to his 15th major.

Well, that’s still certainly possible. After all, THE TOURNAMENT ISN’T WON ON THURSDAY.
