Turning Stone Championship round one: Iron will beats the bombers

Send feedback »
Maybe lengthening the Atunyote course has worked, because the bombers were not exactly in the ascendant in round one. Joint leader Jeff Gove is certainly no heavy hitter - he couldn't get his measured drives to average more than 274 yards when the distan… more »

Turning Stone Championship preview: Forward to the past

1 feedback »
Back to earth with a bang this week as we return to what the PGA season is like when there's no FedEx Cup competition around. Only one player ranked in the top 30 and that's the under-achieving Henrik Stenson. So all you FedEx naysayers would be happy wi… more »

Tour Championship, round four: A memo to Tim Finchem

4 feedbacks »
Tim, well done. Can't say I was overly enthused by the way your new competition ended in a piranha-like feeding frenzy, but against what was achieved overall that's a minor quibble. You know Tim, you can be a bit of a mean mother at times, but maybe yo… more »

Tour Championship round three: East Lake's birdies are too cheap

1 feedback »
If there's one thing I'm pretty sure of, it's that this wasn't what Tim Finchem had in mind. The PGA Tour commissioner must have foreseen Tiger Woods walking away with his beloved brainchild, the FedEx Cup, without too much hassle. Indeed, despite all th… more »

Tour Championship round two: So who's going to come second?

Send feedback »
Where's Rory Sabbatini when you need him? Too far down the table to warrant any provocative remarks about Tiger Woods, that's for sure. Instead the media, stuck for storylines now that Woods has virtually wrapped up two competitions in the same amazing f… more »

Tour Championship round one: Tiger odds on after just three holes!

Send feedback »
Of course it's a coincidence, but isn't it kind of spooky that East Lake sits gripped by a relentless heatwave all summer, then as soon as the PGA's band of brothers sets foot on the course the heavens open? Maybe there's a marketing opportunity here tha… more »

Tour Championship preview: Nice of Tiger's opponents to turn up

Send feedback »
How green is my golf course? Depends on who you read. For some the state of East Lake's greens is shocking enough to warrant the sacking of PGA Commissioner Tim Finchem, others are wondering what the fuss is all about. I had visions of balls hopping, ski… more »

BMW Championship round four: Some people are never happy

3 feedbacks »
You'd think they'd know when to quit, the FedEx Cup naysayers. Even though two competitions of the utmost quality have blown the wind out of their sails they try to struggle on with the oars. So now the FedEx Cup is a disaster because the greens at East… more »

BMW Championship round three: Stricker can outshine Tiger again

4 feedbacks »
How good was that? Steve Stricker's immaculate performance in Saturday's third round, with the eagle at the eighth the icing on the cake, reinforces the astonishing transformation in his fortunes. He is only the second player in 10 years to hit all of Co… more »

BMW Championship round two: Who's up to blocking the Tiger?

Could everyone just shut up about the FedEx Cup for a little and let us concentrate on another engrossing competition? It's tough finding the golfing wood for the whingeing trees. There was plenty of good golf on offer Friday, despite the rain and wind… more »

BMW Championship round one: Look out for the windy city

Battle fatigue looks to be setting in among our band of merrie golfing men. How else to explain Geoff Ogilvy propping up the leaderboard at 7 over after three top ten weeks? The stats suggested he might suffer, especially where the rough is punishing pla… more »

BMW Championship preview: At least Tiger Woods is turning up

Send feedback »
So now we know, thanks to Tiger Woods and Ernie Els. It's that dratted pension that's got all the top golfers so uppity. Why should they have to wait for their money until they're too old even to lift a golf stick, let alone swing it? Hang on though, did… more »

Deutsche Bank Championship round four: Lefty lays the ghost of Winged Foot

4 feedbacks »
It's the new Phil Mickelson talking point: which is more important for Lefty, his victory in The Players or triumph in this bruising toe-to-toe encounter with the best golfer in the world? The Players is a major (ish) and they don't come much better th… more »

Deutsche Bank Championship round three : Tiger needs another fast start

1 feedback »
Tiger Woods may well feel he's been let out of jail as he prepares for Monday's final round. He left TPC Boston thinking he'd be six shots back, but the final gap is only half that. No great hurdle for the man who came from three shots back to sweep pa… more »

Deutsche Bank Championship round two: Funny you should say that, Mickelson

3 feedbacks »
It's interesting how differently two people can say exactly the same thing. For Rory Sabbatini, getting paired with Tiger Woods in the final round of a competition is basically 'Yeah bring it on, Tiger's beatable'. For Phil Mickelson it's simply 'That wo… more »
