15 and 81

The cream of the professional golf world certainly rose to the top after the first round of the 2019 Masters. The co-leaders after superb 6-under par 66’s were American stars Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka. For the cerebral 26-year old DeChambeau the last 12 months have been a coming out party as he has won […]

A Match Well Played

The biggest match of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play happened in the Round of 16 when Rory McIlroy faced Tiger Woods.

Rounding Into Form

Rory McIlroy has been rounding himself into form at the beginning on 2019.

A New Man

We prefer our heroes flawed. Our narcissistic penchant as the keepers of the flame of all things right and wrong is to place someone on a pedestal and then do everything that we can to see them off it. Tiger Woods is a symbol of both a fallen idol and a redeemed one. It would […]

He’s Back

Canadian rookie Corey Conners shot a third round 3-under par 68 at the Valspar Championship to take the lead into a Sunday for the first time in his 18th start on the PGA Tour. He would be paired with Tiger Woods who was tied for second place (with Justin Rose and Brandt Snedeker), a stroke […]

Tiger Woods Returns

Thursday marks the most anticipated return since the arrival of the new Star Wars trilogy when Tiger Woods returns to golf to hit his first competitive shot in over 15 months at the Hero World Golf Challenge. He would follow that shot up with another 72 of them to record a 1-over par 73 at […]

Arnold Palmer passed away on Sunday, September 25. While he may no longer be physically here, he left behind a legacy that will endure for the ages. He was a great man, the undeniable King.
