Power Rankings - Wyndham Championship

Like most tournaments post-major, the pickings are slim this week. There are a few solid choices, but expect their price to be high and for all of the competition to be playing them. If you're behind, navigating this week will be crucial as the season starts to come to a close. If you're ahead, you may want to consider saving some starts on the front-runners if you're...

Movers and Losers - Introducing The Aggregate

Through mysticism, wisdom, arbitrary numbers pulled from thin air, and some serious number crunching, I assign each player a number, called The Aggregate, each week. That number, out of 100 with lower being better, is a collection of rankings and statistics that generally tell how a player has performed in the recent past and, for fantasy teams, can indicate whether is player is...

Pettersson abandons anchoring at Open

One of the big surprises Thursday in the British Open came from Carl Pettersson. For the first time in a major, he's using a conventional putter.

A new rule adopted in May means golfers no longer will be able to use anchored strokes...

Pettersson abandons long putter

Carl Pettersson has used a long putter since 1998. It follows that he lobbied against the upcoming ban on anchored putting strokes. And that he is one of nine players who retained a lawyer. And that he ultimately tired of the whole controversy. But now, instead of fighting, he is switching. That's right: Pettersson used the short, conventional putter on a trial basis Sunday...

Carl Pettersson’s ball hit by another ball during his backswing

Clark speaks out on anchoring ban

There is a passion in his voice. What's more, it's hard to debate that he doesn't provide a well-grounded and profound thought process that any courtroom attorney would be proud to call his own. If Tim Clark wowed them at a PGA Tour players' meeting Jan. 21 to discuss the proposed ban on anchoring, he demonstrated Wednesday night exactly why. Compelling and committed...
