For the 147th time, the world's greatest golfers return to golf's motherland for the opportunity to vie for one of sports most prestigious trophies -- the Claret Jug -- and the right to be called champion golfer of the year.
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.
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.
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.
This week, the PGA Tour moves out of Texas and begins their jaunt through the Northern United States. The world's best head to the house that Jack built -- literally. Muifield Village hosts the Memorial Tournament -- where the man handing out the trophy is more important than the prize itself.
The 2018 edition of the PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass was just about everything casual golf fans hate. Stars packed the leader board, Tiger rose and fell, big names made huge shots under pressure -- and none of it factored into the decision.
Hola, friends and degenerates! After yet another week of betting disappointment, it's starting to get a little old. With the team of Jason Dufner and Pat Perez finishing runner-up, it gave ol' No. 1 runner-up finish No. 4 on the season. Blugh.
With team golf at the Zurich Classic in the rear view, we now return you to your regularly schedule scoring format at the Wells Fargo Championship. Not only is stroke play returning this week, so is the Quail Hollow Club -- the usual site of the Wells Fargo.
Hello Friends -- and degenerates! The end of our long, torturous ordeal is finally nearing an end. The light at the end of the tunnel is now a solid beam of blinding light full of hope, the promise of Spring, green outerwear and pimento cheese. Masters week is upon us. 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.
Ola! Friends and degenerates! -- We have almost made it. Masters week is nearly upon us. There's just one more week of (almost) meaningless golf to tolerate.
