At the 19th Hole: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

  At the 19th Hole: AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am   It has been a nice run. Hitting back-to-back winners in the one-and-done pool, and backing the winner in two of the past three tournaments has been a lot of fun. You’re never as good as your hot stretches or weak as the cold ones. Mmmmmmm Cold Ones. DFS wise, it has been more of the middling same. Just slightly showing a profit...

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. However, I also had a 31-to-1 in on Jimmy Walker to win the tournament, so Sunday was an annoying — and interrupted...

Snedeker closes with 69, then waits to see if it's enough

SAN DIEGO (AP) Brandt Snedeker closed with a 3-under 69 on Sunday in raging weather at Torrey Pines, and then had to wait to see if it would be enough to win the Farmers Insurance Open. And that could take another day. The final round was suspended for the third time because of gusts that topped 40 mph. Jimmy Walker was at 7-under par and led by one shot over Snedeker and K.J....

Rickie Fowler is turning the Big Three into a Big Four

It was only a year ago when we had a dream start to the PGA Tour season. Patrick Reed took down Jimmy Walker at the Plantation Course, only to see Walker bounce back the next week and dominate at the Sony Open. Jason Day, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker, Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson would win over the next eight weeks, preparing us for what would go down as one of the best seasons...

Even the world's best golfers envy parts of others' game

HONOLULU (AP) Jimmy Walker does not like to talk about another player's game when they are in the same group except for when ''Good shot'' is warranted. So he had to hold his tongue last summer while playing with Justin Rose. ''He drove it so good, on a rope. I was like ... wow,'' Walker said. ''I waited two days and I said, `Justin, I don't give out compliments very often, but...

Fantasy Corner - Sony Open

Favorite DraftKings Targets Jimmy Walker ($12,200): This week, there are plenty of great options in this tier. Walker has been playing pretty well leading up to this event, and has won the last two tries at this tournament. He's comfortable here, and usually starts the year well. It'd be surprising to see him perform poorly this week. Matt Kuchar ($11,500): Kuchar is ultra-consistent...

Defending champ Spieth one shot back at Hero World Challenge

NASSAU, Bahamas — Jimmy Walker had reason to believe he was simply playing golf on vacation. He was at Albany Golf Club, located at the far end of New Providence island with a tropical feel even without views of the ocean. The air was warm. The breeze was gentle. And there was hardly anyone watching him play golf. But there were leaderboards around the golf course at the Hero World...

An evaluation and sunset of a fun PGA tour season

U.S. Open players lost figuratively, literally in practice at Chambers Bay

  Robert Streb walked off the third green at Chambers Bay, looked both directions and headed left down a dirt path toward Puget Sound. Wrong way. He walked back up the hill and stood in front of a large sign that showed a map of the course, arms crossed as he tried to figure out one of the many mysteries about this U.S. course. In this case, it was a simple question -- where was...

PGA Tour: Spieth in contention after rain alters course at Nelson

  Jordan Spieth wasn't sure what par was at his hometown AT&T Byron Nelson and thinks it actually might have helped him through some frustrating early holes. There's a reason the Masters champion was uncertain - overnight rain turned one of the signature par 4s at the saturated TPC Four Seasons into a pitch-and-putt par 3 at 105 yards for the second round Friday.
