Mike Weir shot 64 with a double-bogey in the first round and Lucas Glover matched it in his second round. Ricky Barnes set the U.S. Open scoring record […]

Besides Tony Romo pulling out in Houston, perhaps the biggest news coming from Monday’s Sectional qualifiers is that Justin Rose, who won The Memorial a day earlier, failed to secure a trip to Pebble Beach next week. So did Rickie Fowler, who placed second to Rose. Now that just sucks. I know rules are rules, […]

At the opening of the UW Husky Golf Center, Nick Taylor, who is playing in the U.S. Open this week, and Jens Bracht show us some of their juggling skillz – hitting the ball from the bottom level to the top. This is why these guys are so good. (Here’s another take – in case […]

On Saturday, I attended the grand opening of the University of Washington’s brand spanking new Husky Golf Center in Hec-Ed Pavillion. Men’s coach Matt Thurmond and Women’s coach Mary Lou Mulflur did the honors, cutting the ribbon and welcoming everyone to the new facilities. As expected, it’s nothing short than state of the art.

Embed from Getty Images I will remember February 23rd as the day where WUP’s theme was “chill out, everyone” to all golf-related news. Perhaps it’s because I’ve been so preoccupied with the real news the past few months that my perspective is different than when my entire world was golf 24/7. Well, I loathe myself a […]
