This year's tilt will be the 118th in history and will take place at Shinnecock on Long Island. If the name sounds familiar to those casual fans, it's for good reason. All you golf nerds like me already know the stories, the Opens, the triumph and the (relative) tragedy this legendary golf course has seen. 
If you like birdies and you missed the Fort Worth Invitational last week then you missed out. Good Lord, was Colonial Country Club gettable -- including on Sunday. In the end, Justin Rose fell just one shot shy of setting a new tournament scoring record -- but final score of 20-under was good enough to score him career win No. 9. 
Hey yo! Have you missed me? No? That's fine. To be fair, Golfstradamus hasn't been any better than your garden variety bookie. That said, the PGA Tour is teeing it up at one of my favorite venues this week -- Colonial Country Club -- and sports betting is becoming legal! 
The world's best golfers are in Austin, Texas this week for the Dell Technologies Match-Play Championship. As we all know, that means anything and everything can happen. Just like the NCAA's "March Madness" tournament, you can expect upsets galore followed by a No. 1 seed inevitably winning the damn thing.
