Boo Weekley back in Hawaii, with a hunger for golf

(AP Photo planned.) By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer The one culinary credo of Boo Weekley is to never eat or drink anything he can't pronounce. But he doesn't have to be able to spell it. ''That wouldn't leave a lot,'' he said. And that's why he didn't mind giving up his preferred choice of beer for what he calls - and spells - a ''My...

PGA Tour: Should FedEx Cup playoff tournaments be worth so much?

Henrik Stenson (left) Justin Rose (right) I have written before about my beef with the FedEx Cup playoff system, but another has arisen for me to pick on. I think it’s something that should be worth noting. For a look at my previous article, just to get in the FedEx Cup-scrutinizing mood, follow this link if you haven’t read it already at http://isportsweb.com/2013/08/18/pga...

Your May 28th Pin Sheet

  Here's your May 28th Pin Sheet Jason Sobel with a thoughtful piece on golf's image problem:  "The biggest takeaway from the situation wasn’t that it labeled Garcia – fairly or unfairly – as a racist, but that it shined a spotlight on an issue which has roots within golf’s foundation. Casual observers who know little about the game or those who play...

Weekley's putter puts him near lead

Boo Weekley is an anomaly on the PGA Tour. He doesn't fit the mold of the typical tour professional: the prim-and-proper, well-dressed 20- or 30-something with a classic swing. Instead, the Florida native looks a little disheveled -- and, judging by the gray in his hair and on his unshaven face, a little older than most on the PGA Tour. But what Weekley lacks in grace and style...

Golf Stat Terminology 101

How many times have you been watching a golf tournament and the announcer says, "Harry Hooker is a great ball striker---he's number three on the tour in ball striking." And you think to yourself: That's great, but I wish I knew what they meant by ball striking. Or the announcer will say, " Sammy Slicer leads the tour in total driving." What exactly is...

Gainey gains fame beyond the gloves

Not only does Tommy Gainey make fellow country golfer Boo Weekley look like a city slicker, he is perhaps the most compelling rags-to-riches story on the PGA Tour since Lee Trevino. Merry Mex had his Dr Pepper bottle. Gainey has his two gloves. Each has laughed all the way to Wells Fargo, to keep the golfy theme going. Now that he has climbed from rural humble beginnings to the...
