AT&T National round one: Tiger fluffs his lines

2 feedbacks »
A small bit of history was witnessed at the Congressional on Thursday - Tiger Woods messed up a 2ft tap-in. Kind of sums up how much his mind was on the day's play rather than the responsibilities of the competition he sponsors. So now people are wonderi… more »

AT&T National preview: Does US Open form hold the key?

2 feedbacks »
Okay, that's enough baby talk. I'm in a desperate rush this week so I'll cut to the chase - Kent Jones. He has just about the most perfect set of stats you could imagine for this week's event: his best this season is a hard-fought 29th at the Byron Nel… more »

Buick Open round four: Where did that one come from?

4 feedbacks »
"Whoever said this week was one to leave alone ... well done!" Not an entirely fair forum reflection on Sunday's debacle perhaps, but it summed up the mood of many punters about Brian Bateman's shock(ing) victory. Actually, I thought the Buick Open pro… more »

Buick Open round three: Are the numbers up for Furyk?

Send feedback »
Today's quick question is far simpler than it looks. Unravel the message in the following code: 69 69 67 67. Okay, pens down now. The answer? "Jim Furyk really has his work cut out to win the Buick Open today." See, I told you it was simple. There is s… more »

Buick Open round two: Can Kenny repeat his sizzler?

Send feedback »
Some one should tell Brett Quigley he doesn't really fit in at the top of the leaderboard, because he's not a former winner. There's four of them sitting right alongside him, with two more in the wings: Woody Austin one shot back and 1999 champion Tom Pe… more »

Buick Open round one: Veterans day leaves Furyk with work to do

Four course winners in the top eight - who says course form is no guide? It can't be too much of a coincidence that the same four top the betting at the end of round one. It's not often you see that happen. What's interesting is the order the odds-make… more »

Buick Open preview: Is Furyk really so sound?

Send feedback »
So that's it then. Stick your money on Jim Furyk, open a can of beer, switch on the tele and watch the winnings birdie their way in. That's what almost everyone seems to be saying and it's not hard to see why. Furyk won this in 2003, was second last ye… more »

Travelers Championship round four: Not quite a fairy tale, but close

Send feedback »
Jay Williamson's wobble, when it finally came, was understandable. Yes, he tells us, he let nerves get to him with that birdie putt for victory on the 72nd hole, and it was goodbye to the breakthrough win he so desperately wanted and richly deserved. F… more »

Travelers Championship round three: Plenty ready to spoil Jay's fairy tale

5 feedbacks »
You don't end up with too many fairy tales in golf and it is questionable whether Sunday's final round of the Travelers is going to add to them. It would be a great story if Jay Williamson won his way back onto the PGA circuit from his exemption, and he… more »

Travelers Championship round two: Williamson screws together a hot round

Send feedback »
Odd to think of golf as a game where it helps to bring along a mechanic. The way clubs are developing though, players might even think of doing a degree course in engineering themselves. Jay Williamson didn't quite need that level of expertise to fix his… more »

Travelers Championship round one: DiMarco shoulders a tough burden

TPC River Highlands appears to have turned itself into a kind of rehab centre. There's a fair number of crocks, both of the physical and mental variety, who seem to have rejuvenated their game at the Travelers. Brad Faxon and Shigeki Maruyama come in tra… more »

Time has not been kind to some of those who headed last year's Buick leaderboard, as it then was. Winner J J Henry has managed just one top 10 and two top 20s this season. Hunter Mahan is only now showing signs of life after a lone top 10 against 8 misse… more »

US Open round four: Again Furyk snatches defeat from jaws of victory

4 feedbacks »
Another Major needlessly lost on the last day. Not by Tiger Woods; I'm talking about the man who really should have won Sunday - Jim Furyk. It was his for the taking until he had his own minor Mickelson moment on the 17th with an over-confident choice… more »

US Open round three: Will Tiger's putter be his Achilles' heel?

1 feedback »
Okay guys, cut the excited chatter for a minute. All this babble about Tiger Woods, anyone would think you were trying to win the game for him before he's taken a single shot Sunday. As usual, here I stand on my lonely redoubt, my red coat glowing in the… more »

US Open round 2: Oh to be an Englishman, now that Casey's there

It's been sooooooo good to be an Englishman these last couple of days. Paul Casey's astonishing round Friday was the icing on the cake. It must surely rank among the great rounds of Major golf history. But it's back to the old accuracy argument again.… more »
