The Northern Trust Open is currently going on from Riviera Country Club this week out in California. and while there is a load of talent in the tournament, we are going to take a moment to loo ahead to next week’s World Golf Championships event, because it is truly one of the most unique events in sports, and one of the most fun to watch in golf.
It’s the Accenture Match Play Championship, with the top-64 players in the world qualifying in four different brackets, just like you see in the March Madness tournament in College basketball. Yes I know, it’s 68 teams now, but really, everyone knows the tournament unofficially begins after the play-in games. Continue reading →
We’d like to take a bit of credit for jumping on the Brandt Snedeker bandwagon even before he won this past week at Pebble Beach, or prior to his second runner-up finish at the Waste Management Phoenix 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 →
Jason Dufner has been a name that has been at or near the top of many leaderboards during the 2012 PGA Tour Season, and that is exactly where he finds himself at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after two rounds.
