Tiger's not going to win Masters, but for once he wasn't a total wreck

I can't remember being so excited to watch a golf tournament as I was this week going into the Masters. Not just because it's the Masters or because of the chance for Rory McIlroy to complete the career grand slam. No, I wanted to watch for the same reasons you want to see a crash at a NASCAR race. I wanted to see the return of Tiger Woods. And I wanted to see if he'd fall apart...

The par-5 13th at Augusta: A beauty can be a real beast

AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) The beauty of the 13th hole at Augusta National goes beyond the estimated 1,600 azalea bushes that are bursting with blooms down the left side and behind the green of the best little par 5 in golf. It is the ultimate risk-and-reward hole, pleasing to play until one mistake from the tee, from the fairway, even from the green. Curtis Strange once hit into the tributary...

The Lion Sings Tonight: John Daly Hits It Hard In His Car

I’d imagine hearing yourself singing on the radio is a lot like seeing yourself play professional golf on national television. I, myself, have experienced neither, but I know a guy who has: John Daly.  Related Link: Back9 Exclusive: John Daly on Cocktails, Country Hits and Charisma Daly was supposedly driving through Arkansas on his way to a Razorbacks football game when he heard...

A Rare Breed: Meet The Labrador Ball Retriever

Retrieving lost golf balls can be a tall task, especially without the correct equipment. You can send your caddie to fetch it from the pond, but not all of us are fortunate enough to have someone looping for us. Instead, just bring this awesome Labrador (ball) Retriever to the course with you.   I don’t think Murphy would be able to carry your clubs, but if you ever hit your last...

Man Wields Machete After Golf Ball Lands In His Yard

Living on a golf course is a treat. You get great views of well-kept landscape and you can hit balls for free when no one is around. But I guess it does come with some downsides, if you will: - You have to expect golfers to hit balls into your yard.- Your house may be hit by errant tee shots. That’s it. There are just about no drawbacks to living on a course. Unless you’re a...

John Daly, David Duval Back to Q-School Thanks to Flawed System

Power Rankings - PGA Championship

The last player to win three tournaments in three starts was none other than Tiger Woods. There's only been three other players to do so since 1980: Tom Watson, David Duval, and Vijay Singh. Will Rory McIlroy make it four? Valhalla plays a little bit more, dare I say, forgiving than Firestone, with wider fairways and less punitive rough. Couple that with the high temperatures and...

Flashback: Sergio Challenges Tiger at 1999 PGA Championship

Something extraordinary happened to Sergio Garcia at the Open Championship last month, but it wasn’t that he finished second — there was nothing strange about that. The Spaniard has had to get used to finishing second in majors. The odd thing was that he walked off the 18th green with a smile on his face, knowing that he had given it his very best shot. And with the roar of the...

Greatest Ever: Payne Stewart & the 1999 U.S. Open

In 113 years of the U.S. Open, one of them stands out as the greatest ever. Was it Francis Ouimet winning as an amateur in 1913 for the first time? Nope. How about 1960, when Jack Nicklaus almost became the first amateur to win the U.S. Open since 1933? Ehhh, it’s close, but no. Maybe Tiger on a wounded knee, forcing and then winning an epic Monday playoff against Rocco Mediate...
