At the 19th Hole: Waste Management Phoenix Open

  At the 19th Hole: Waste Management Phoenix Open Well, it certainly was an interesting finish to the Farmers Insurance Open. With the Jason Day news, and chickening out on Dustin Johnson, I rolled out Brandt Snedeker as my one-and-done pick. Sweet, I know.

Golfer decides to destroy bush

Bill Haas hates bushes. Ok, maybe not all bushes, only ones that happen to interfere with his ball on the course. During the 18th hole Saturday at the Hero World Challenge, Haas’ ball landed directly in a bush. As the rule states, you have to play the ball as it lays. So, Haas decided that no bush was going to get in his way. Not only did he destroy the bush, but he actually hit...

A special moment for Jay and Bill Haas at Presidents Cup

INCHEON, South Korea (AP) Jay Haas took a deep breath, trying to calm nerves he had only ever felt on the golf course while playing. His U.S. team was one point away from winning the Presidents Cup, and the final match added another layer of emotion. American victory depended on Bill Haas, who was much more than a captain's pick. He was the captain's son. And the kid came through...

Even a slumping Mickelson is the right Presidents Cup pick

On Tuesday afternoon, Jay Haas, the man in charge of this 2015 United States Presidents Cup team, had two options – setting up a situation similar to the thousand or so decisions he’s faced on the golf course during his career. Pull out three-wood, take a whack at a high-risk shot in hopes of pulling off something magical or hit an iron to the fat part of the fairway and keep...

He appeared quite spry for his 63 years. The first light drops of rain wouldn't fall until he had tapped in for bogey and stepped to the back of the green, where he'd wrap his tan arms...
