With Martin Kaymer winning The Players and J.B. Holmes winning the Wells Fargo, no one can be considered an expert at picking champions on the PGA Tour.   A long shot, odds at 50/1 or worse, has a great chance to win because of the strong fields on Tour.

Ryder Cup-like atmosphere set for Spieth and Kaymer

Ryder Cup-like atmosphere set for Spieth and Kaymer

Jordan Spieth pumped his fist — not once, or twice, but thrice — when his 12-footer from the fringe to save par disappeared into the cup on the 18th hole. So clutch.

That putt kept him bogey-free for the third straight round at TPC Sawgrass (and since his third round at the RBC Heritage, his last start), and with Martin Kaymer missing his nine-footer on a similar line, it gave Spieth a share of the 54-lead heading into the final round of The Players Championship.

Snake charmer!
For a while, it looked like no one wanted to win in the final round of the Valspar Championship as the leaders got off to slow starts and at the same time, the contenders began to backup. Then, John Senden decided he was going to snare this victory for his first on the PGA Tour since 2006, beating out Kevin Na by one stroke.

Bill Haas is just one round away from securing a spot on the American Team for the Presidents Cup.

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.

AT LAST! JB Holmes sends a drive on its way

Mike Walker of Golf.com has published the results of a tedious experiment he and four others conducted during the second round of this year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando. Armed with stopwatches, clipboards (for Science!) and a healthy stockpile of patience, the team took nearly twelve hours to monitor every one of 45 different players as they played the same nine-hole stretch around Bay Hill.
