Golf and March Madness

My favourite basketball tourney started yesterday. March Madness will be entertaining, thrilling and a must watch sporting event. I bet you are wondering why I am talking basketball on my golf blog. Well, it is very simple; I think that the FedEx Cup should replace its current format to the style of the biggest basketball tournament in the world. Yup, the FedEx Cup should adopt the one and done match play format of US college basketball! It would be very exciting for the fans as the top 64 players in the world go head to head over the space of 4 weeks.

One Golf Shot Makes A Difference

If you ever thought that one golf shot is not enough to change your fortunes on the golf course, I suggest you revisit your thinking.

He is burning up the PGA Tour right now and I wonder how long he can keep up his amazing play. That particular thought is a great topic for another day.

The Masters Day One

After watching seven hours of golf (I think that is a record for me) I found the first day at The Masters to be very typical. There were some highs, some lows, and some grinding. As always, Augusta National Golf Course was in fantastic shape and offered very little chances in the way of lucky breaks. I did notice that as the day progressed, the course became drier and tougher to play. This made for higher scores in the afternoon pairs. Good thing the the tee times are reversed tomorrow because the afternoon pairings will face much winder conditions. As always with The Masters, I did learn something valuable that will help my game.
