This year, the U.S. Open returns to the site of it’s second playing — Shinnecock Hills Golf Club — and the story lines abound. Can we see another first time major winner? Will Phil Mickelson finish the career grand-slam? There’s more, but I’ve got to get to the casino and place these bets.

Like many of you, I’m already looking ahead to next week — but there is meaningful golf being played this week in Tennessee! The FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind in Memphis is always a favorite stop. 

Why? Who doesn’t want to go to Graceland? Poor boys and pilgrims? I didn’t think so.

The world’s best are in Dublin, Ohio for the Memorial Tournament. Jack’s tournament.

Of all the the non-major, non-PLAYERS Championship championships, this is the one everyone wants to win. There’s just something special about getting to hang with the Golden Bear.

Hello, friends and degenerates! After the disappointment of the year’s first major, it’s time to turn our sights and wallets towards the sandy shores of South Carolina and Hilton Head Island for the RBC Heritage.

As they have every year since 1983, the best in the world will tee it up at the Harbor Town Golf Links the week after the Masters — and just like each of the last three years in this tournament, I’ve got your winner pegged.

Five words I have been dying to say for about 365 days, give or take. Christmas in April, the most wonderful time of the year, yada yada.

Hello, friends and degenerates! It’s time once again to weed out the weak from the strong! The players from the posers! The best from the rest!

Hola, friends and degenerates! It’s time to head back to the Sunshine State for this week’s Valspar Championship. 

In the past, the Valspar has been a sub-par tournament filled with PGA Tour journeymen and young kids who haven’t really proven they could do more than beat their dad and his buddies at the local club. Boy, how times have changed!
