Risk and Reward - RBC Canadian Open

I've just noticed that I don't have any Canadians in my Power Rankings. I didn't intentionally do this, and it wasn't meant as a slight toward the United States' northern neighbors, but there just weren't any playing well enough statistically to justify a place. To be fair, no Canadian has won the Canadian Open for the last sixty years. That's sixty, with...

Power Rankings - RBC Canadian Open

If you go to any non fantasy-centric site this week, there's a good chance you'll be hearing about how Rory McIlroy is ready to dominate again. In fact, I'm sure several have him pegged to win this week's RBC Canadian Open from his couch (or whatever a 25-year-old multi-millionaire sits on). Some of his competitors from The Open, however, are out this week, grinding...

Power Rankings - The Open Championship

When asked what winning The Masters was like, Adam Scott said something to the extent of "I'll let you know when I do". Of course, that Adam Scott was an actor in the TV series, Parks and Recreation. This week's top seed in my power rankings has actually won The Masters and is currently the world's best golfer. For nine-weeks, Adam Scott (the golfer) has held...

Movers and Losers - John Deere Classic

I'll be testing a theory this week, something that's been a little bit of black luck this season for me. You see, I'll start a hot player for the first time in a few weeks, and BOOM, missed cut. Jimmy Walker and Marc Leishman are the recent casualties of my curse, but Matt Kuchar has done it to me twice this season, as has Bubba Watson and Jordan Spieth. But, that'...

The Travelers Championship - Power Rankings

I’d like to start out talking about the World Cup because, mostly, I’d just like to avoid talking about my picks for the U.S. Open. With Pinehurst knocking away Bubba Watson’s shots like Tim Howard breaking up Ghana’s scoring chances, I was left with little in the way of points by Sunday as my other picks slowly faded out of the top 10. This spring has been particularly harsh...

At the Houston Open, he found himself in a playoff, only to lose on a holed chip shot by Matt Jones. At the Masters last week, a four putt on the fourth hole was his undoing.
