What’s left?A look at the PGA Tour schedule after the Majors

Four majors down, four playoff events (and a Ryder Cup) remain. While yes, the bulk of the schedule and the four biggest tournaments for 2018 are complete, don't give up on golf for the year just yet. We have the Wyndham Championship this week, which may not be a top-tier event, but after that we're … Continue reading What’s left?A look at the PGA Tour schedule after the Majors

There was also a lot of, well, not so good golf played too. Below … Continue reading Five Worst Missed-Cuts at The Open Championship

I asked 11 LPGA Golfers, “What’s the most nervous you’ve ever been on a golf course?”

We've all been there: You've booked a tee time. You've gotten everyone together. You've arrived at the golf course early enough to get some practice in. Your clubs are clean. You're ready to go out on the course and shoot a great score. Then you step up to the first tee. All of a sudden, … Continue reading I asked 11 LPGA Golfers, “What’s the most nervous you’ve ever been on a golf course?”

I spoke with Brittany Lincicome about playing on the PGA Tour this week

In doing so, she will become the first woman in 10 years to accomplish the feat, … Continue reading I spoke with Brittany Lincicome about playing on the PGA Tour this week

Inside the Ropes for Brooke Henderson’s final round at the Marathon Classic

It was a tough finish for Brooke Henderson today. After a birdie on the 14th hole, the tournament looked like it was hers to win. Back-to-back bogeys on the next two holes, and missing makeable birdie putts on the two finishing par-fives, would leave her one stroke out of a playoff. However, considering her best … Continue reading Inside the Ropes for Brooke Henderson’s final round at the Marathon Classic

Inside the Ropes of Brittany Marchand’s final round at the Marathon Classic

After shooting one-under in yesterday's third round, while paired with Lexi Thompson, Brittany Marchand was back in the same pairing again today.

Smylie Kaufman’s Struggles Continue

Disclaimer: It took everything in me not to title this blog, "Kaufman without much to Smylie about". But I digress. Does this look like the face of a happy golfer? It's not. Since finishing fourth last October at the Sanderson Farms Championship (not exactly a top-tier event), Kaufman has competed in 18 events on the … Continue reading Smylie Kaufman’s Struggles Continue
