Watson could be difference-maker for underdog U.S. Ryder Cup team

  AUCHTERARDER, Scotland – It will be more than three days until we finally see a golf ball get struck with something other than a team side-match on the line at Gleneagles, home to the 40th Ryder Cup. Anticipation for the event will build with each day. At times, the run-up to Friday’s opening four-ball matches can seem to last for a British fortnight. Before we get to the...

1981 Photo of Tom Kite Working Out Half-Naked is Concerning

This is the area where one would explain the photo, video or quote that follows. This area will be left blank, as the following photo does not warrant any explanation, but instead a warning to shield pregnant women, children and those with a history of chronic back pain.

What to Watch For: Masters Moving Day Sets Up Thrilling Finale

While Saturday at every golf tournament is called “moving day,” this particular one has set the stage for potentially the greatest final round of the Masters since 1986. Sure, there’ve been some pretty incredible finishes lately, but not since Jack Nicklaus roared back and took down Tom Kite, Greg Norman, Tom Watson and Seve Ballesteros has the list of combatants been so potent...

PGA Tour: Why the Champions Tour is underrated

This past week I had the opportunity to work for The Golf Channel at the 2014 Mississippi Gulf Coast Resorts Classic Golf Tournament. This is a PGA Champions Tour event. Now, many of you may be thinking, “Champions Tour – all I care about are the young guys. The others are old and washed up.” Well you, my friend, are very very wrong. I learned a lot this week, including how...

Tiger? Player of Year? 'Major' debate

With the trophies (that matter) out of the way, it's time for golfers to fill their pockets from the FedEx pinata and to size up the season. To the traditionalists, the PGA Championship at Oak Hill, the final major, brought down the curtain on the year. But there are bills to pay, and given that PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem could sell smog to Los Angeles, the traveling...

FedEx Cup playoffs: Some rips, plenty of riches

Jordan Spieth used words like ''incredible'' and ''amazing'' to describe Liberty National Golf Club. He can be forgiven. He's only 20.
