Power Rankings - John Deere Classic

Sometimes you're Germany, and, well, sometimes you're Brazil. For the John Deere Classic, you're either Steve Stricker or you're not, as he's pretty much dominated this tournament for the last five years, with three wins, a Top-5 and a Top-10. Watching the end of The Greenbrier, I heard a commentator saying that Stricker will be dipping into his retirement fund...

Power Rankings - The Greenbrier Classic

Like a U.S. goal against Belgium in the World Cup, I get one right every once in a while, having Justin Rose at #4 in my Power Rankings for the Quicken Loans National. Not unlike Belgium, however, Rose was widely considered a strong contender for victory last week, so his inclusion wasn't exactly the stuff of high science and fantastical prognostication. Having 4 of the 7 players...

Martin Kaymer Sets U.S. Open Record Through Two Rounds At Pinehurst

PINEHURST, N.C. — Martin Kaymer is playing a brand of golf rarely seen in the U.S. Open. It might even be enough for soccer-mad Germany to pay attention. The other 155 players at Pinehurst No. 2 certainly are. Kaymer set the 36-hole scoring record at the U.S. Open on Friday with another 5-under 65 – this one without a single bogey – to build an early eight-shot lead and leave...

Hideki Matsuyama is strong, poised and now has a breakthrough victory on the PGA Tour.

DUBLIN, Ohio -- He lost the lead by sending his tee shot at No. 16 into the water, then broke his driver in frustration after what he feared would be his last drive of the day. Hideki Matsuyama still won his first PGA Tour event Sunday at the Memorial. He might just be getting started.

OK, Kevin Na infamously plays slow and people ***** about it. I like Kevin Na, I think he’s a good player and is usually a very dangerous putter.
