Adam Scott doesn't have much to worry about in putter switch

The popular ''strokes gained'' statistic was not introduced until four years ago, although the PGA Tour has data to track putting performances dating to 2004. Tiger Woods was No. 2 that year, followed by Brad Faxon and Steve Stricker. All have reputations as being great putters. So it's worth noting, statistically, who was the No. 1 putter in 2004 - Adam Scott. And that's why...

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly of Fox’s U.S. Open coverage

After what seemed weeks of hype, Fox’s inaugural excursion at the U.S. Open has come and gone. This being Fox Sports Group’s first time airing the nation’s golf championship, there were a lot of eyeballs viewing the event. And every time Fox didn’t make the cut or failed to meet expectations, the reactions on social media were quick, swift and cutting. Some were fair, others...

Holly Sonders Came Out Swinging At The Masters

  Fox Sports 1 has officially unleashed Holly Sonders on the Masters. Remember how Fox spent a ton of money to get a 12-year TV deal with the USGA?

See, this is the genius of what Fox is doing with...

It was also an opportunity to see the broadcast team of Joe Buck and Greg Norman in its inaugural event. Buck began the broadcast by being reverential...

Reviews for Fox debut on golf: ‘Rough, but not without promising signs’

I caught a few minutes of Fox Sports’ debut on golf Saturday with Greg Norman’s Franklin Templeton Shootout. Frankly, it’s hard to make much of an assessment with a silly season event. It almost had the feel of a NFL preseason game, with no real juice or drama. My initial impressions were that the telecast seemed OK. I like Joe Buck and am quite sure he can be a good driver...
