As Jordan Spieth once again holed out from a bunker in a playoff to claim a PGA Tour win, I, too, celebrated and went “black out.” Of course, my black out was caused by something other than pure elation.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Entering Sunday’s play at the 117th U.S. Open at Erin Hills, eight players with no major championship wins on their resume teed off with just four shots separating them. At the end of the day, Brooks Koekpa was four clear of all of them. As the wind howled and combatants bogeyed their way around the course, Koepka kept bombing it down the middle and scrambling whenever he needed to on his way to a 6-under 66.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Despite all the hoopla surrounding Daniel Berger at TPC Southwind last week, the 2016 FedEx St. Jude Classic champ was able to successfully defend his title on the strength of back-to-back 66’s over the weekend. Which made me look really bad…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Well — that wasn’t fun, was it?
Every once in a while on the PGA Tour you have an event that makes absolutely no sense. That was this past week at the PLAYERS Championship.
Just take a look at that leader board.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What. A. Finish.
Remember a couple years ago when the PGA Tour had their “these guys are good” television campaign? Well, what happened on Sunday in North Carolina is exactly what they were talking about. Needing to make a bunch of birdies late, Brian Harman did just that and claimed his second career win on Tour.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Trick shot star Wesley Bryan completed his path to the PGA Tour in fashion, outlasting Luke Donald and others to secure his first win on Tour at the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s like Bubba Watson once acknowledged: “Golf is hard.” Actually, I think every living, breathing human being who has ever picked up a crooked stick and whacked the little white pill around has acknowledged that, but I digress.

Olesen Dominates in Turkey
The talk leading up to the 2016 Turkish Airlines Open was centered on the players who decided not to attend the event due to security concerns. But through three rounds it looked like it wouldn’t have mattered who showed up.
Denmark’s Thorbjron Olesen led by seven shots through 54 holes after rounds of 65,62 and 68 and completed the rout with a final round 69 on Sunday.
And even though the Dane had a few nervous moments on Sunday, courtesy of England’s David Horsey and China’s Li Haotong, the result never looked in doubt since Friday morning.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here’s a few things we noticed as we present our weekly Razzball Moving Day Fantasy Golf Report, February 6, 2016 edition.
Rickie Looking for 2nd win of 2016
After a win in Abu Dhabi, and a disappointing jet-lagged induced missed cut at San Diego, Rickie Fowler is back in contention. After opening with rounds of 65 and 68, Fowler looks poised for another victory this week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
The fourth ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking sits one shot back of 36-hole leader and fellow American James Hahn, who sits at -10 through two rounds.
Fowler has left no doubt that his goal this year is to turn the big three of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy into a Big Four, and based on early results he just might have a chance to do it.
With Spieth running around the world getting rich, McIlroy getting everything he can out of life and Day seemingly in the midst of a career-year hangover, Fowler might be the best player in the world right now.
Of course, it will all come down to how he performs in the four majors.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It’s another golf Saturday and time again for the Moving Day Fantasy Golf Report, Saturday, January 30, 2016 edition.
Here are the big stories from the world of fantasy golf that we noticed heading into championship weekend.
Dustin in Contention in San Diego
American Gary Woodland and Korea’s K.J. Choi are leading the Farmer’s Insurance Open at -9 after 36 holes, but the player generating the excitement is the eighth ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Dustin Johnson.
Johnson sits one shot back of the leading duo after a six-under par 66 on Friday. The 31-year old hasn’t won since last March at the World Golf Championships Cadillac Championship and is probably due for a win. A victory this weekend would give him 10 career PGA Tour titles.Please, blog, may I have some more?
