Last year Matt Kuchar got the biggest win of his career, when he claimed the 2012 Players Championship, the flagship event on the PGA Tour. Often considered the ‘fifth major’ even though not official, the win certainly vaulted Kuchar into the category of best players without a Major championship. Continue reading
The Accenture World Match Play tournament is one of the most fun and exciting events on the PGA Tour all season, as the top players in the world gear up for a week of play that includes something different from all of the other tournaments they play every year.
It’s a match play even versus a stroke play event, where players are paired up and play one-on-one against each other in a single elimination 64-player bracket. Continue reading
As someone who has worked in golf, and been around golf for several years, there is one thing that I have come to realize.
Just about everyone plays golf.
That is none the more evident on the PGA Tour than at the annual AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro Am held in the beginning of February. It is one of the most fun events on the PGA Tour calendar each year for a couple of reasons. Continue reading
The victory by Phil Mickelson on Sunday at TPC Scottsdale still proves that Lefty is as good as it gets when he turns it on. A brush with a 59 on Thursday, followed by a wire-to-wire victory proved just that.
Mickelson won early in 2012 though as well, and from there went on to have a very mediocre year by his standards. He wasn’t in real contention in the Major championships, and now it is coming up on three years since Mickelson won his last Major championship at the 2012 Masters. Continue reading
It’s a familiar feeling on the PGA Tour right now. Tiger Woods is at the top of the leaderboard chasing yet another victory. But it’s not simply the fact that Woods is at the top of the lead, it’s the fact that he is dominating the field at Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open.
One week ago, Woods missed the cut at the HSBC Championship, leaving many to wonder what type of game he would bring into 2013. Continue reading
The 2012 Ryder Cup tees off this Friday from Medinah Country Club in Illinois. Team Europe comes in as the defending champions, while the United States will be looking to reclaim the Cup on American soil.
Oddsmakers have already established the United States as -140 favorites on the moneyline, while Europe has been set at +120 in the underdog role. Continue reading
It was quite a memorable Ryder Cup back in 2010 at Celtic Manor Resort, Wales. Team Europe captured a tightly contested event 14.5 points to 13.5 points over The United States. It’s hard to think that two years has already passed.
But the 2012 Ryder Cup comes back to take place in the United States, at Medinah Country Club in Illinois to be exact. Continue reading
Rory McIlroy sits atop the FedEx Cup point standings going into the final event of the playoffs, the Tour Championship at East Lake Country Club in Atlanta. But the one disadvantage that McIlroy has against his closest competition, is that this will be his first trip to East Lake for the event.
Still, it’s hard to argue against McIlroy after he has played so well in the month of September, which included back-to-back wins in the playoffs. And after a week off, the top-30 in the FedEx Cup standings will tee it up at East Lake beginning on Thursday. Continue reading
The 2012 FedEx Cup Playoffs got underway last week with The Barclays from Bethpage Black. It was Nick Watney who captured his first victory on the Tour this season, and shot up atop the latest rankings.
But the playoffs continue this week with the Deutsche Bank Championship from TPC Boston. Continue reading
It’s the first week of the 2012 FedEx Cup playoffs, as The Barclay’s moves to one of the most popular venues in the United States. That would be up in Farmingdale, NY at Bethpage Black, site of the 2002 and 2009 U.S Open.
Tiger Woods comes into the playoffs in the No.1 spot. Woods has won three times in 2012, but failed to win a Major despite contending in the last three. In a twist from the past, it was the performances on the weekend that prevented the 14-time Major winner from winning No.15. Continue reading
