Past Ryder Cup Magic

The 42nd Ryder Cup is just over two weeks away. The US and European teams will descend on the Albatros Course of Le Golf National in Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, France from 28–30 September 2018. If this year’s action emulates the 2016 matches in any way, it is going to be a very exciting few days!  Continue reading

100the PGA Championship Round 2 Suspended

Bad weather blew in and suspended round two of the 100th PGA Championship. Many players did not finish and my pick to win, Rory McIlroy was one. This might be a good thing because McIlroy did not have anything going, so a rest today might help. Today at Bellerive, it will be sunny and hot;  so both the second and third rounds will be completed today barring any unforeseen circumstances. However, I wonder if having to play approximately 30 holes of golf will help or hurt the players who have not finished their second round? Continue reading

Gary Woodland Leads The Way at the PGA Championship

The first round of the 100th PGA Championship did not reveal any surprises. Gary Woodland is leading and has one win on tour this year, but he is a bit of a surprise. He is a journeyman player and had a great round. It will be interesting to see if he can put together three more.

The 100th PGA Championship is upon us; as the fourth Major of 2018, the world’s best will be at the Bellerive Country Club, St. Louis, MO, USA. Create by Robert Trent Jones, this 7500 yard beast will favour the long hitters. The last time the PGA Championship was held at Bellerive was in 1992 with Nick Price winning in a playoff, so I expect the we will see many changes in to the course over the past 26 years. The field is very strong, similar to all Majors, and returning Champion Justin Thomas will have play his best if expects to win back to back PGA Championships. Continue reading

My Favorite Masters Pairing

“A Tradition Like No Other”, coined by Jim Nantz of CBS Sports, definitely sums up all aspects of The Masters.  It is a tournament rich in tradition and is the most anticipated sporting event in the world! There are so many aspects of The Masters that I bet you cannot just pick three; I know I can’t! With the Honorary Starters ready to do their thing in 24 hours, I was wondering who would be my favorite Masters Pairing. Continue reading
