PGA Championship round one: You don't have to be mad, but it helps

Send feedback »
I wonder if Graeme Storm was whistling 'Mad Dogs and Englishmen go out in the Midday Sun' as he set off on his, uh, storming round yesterday (Sorry but everyone else has been at the Storm puns ('Storm steals PGA thunder' etc) I don't see why I shouldn't)… more »

PGA Championship preview: Tiger can overcome Southern Hills bogey

Tulsa already has winners without a shot being fired in anger. They're the perspicacious bunch who lumped on Tiger Woods for the PGA championship way back when his price was out over 4. Cue comprehensive victory at Firestone that shortens the price to ju… more »

Bridgestone Invitational round four: Sabbatini is nothing but a bully

15 feedbacks »
Whoosh! Is it a bird, is it a plane? No it's Tiger Woods saying 'That's enough births, deaths and marriages, let's get on with the golf'. Such a masterful performance was well worth losing money to witness. So why am I mad as hell? Because of Rory Sa… more »

Bridgestone Invitational round three: Has Sabbatini learnt his lesson?

A pity the threatening weather means everyone is now going off in threes. The media have done their level best to squeeze every drop of juice out of a dramatic final pairing of Tiger Woods and Rory Sabbatini. Now Kenny Perry gets in their way. Even so,… more »

Bridgestone Invitational round two: Sabbatini knows how to stay low

Send feedback »
You know what they say about when the going gets tough. Maybe it wasn't such a surprise to see Rory Sabbatini and Zach Johnson push the pace on a day that played on average almost a stroke harder than Thursday. But Davis Love III's 5 under is almost as m… more »

I hope Paul Casey didn't go double-or-quits on his little bet with coach Peter Kostis that he couldn't hit 67 or better, or he'll likely starve. It's going to get tougher to get around Firestone as the rough grows and the sun bakes the greens. Casey, who… more »

These are supposedly exciting times for golf nuts. The last of the majors hoves abruptly into view after which we hurtle relentlessly into the FedEx Cup playoff finale, all topped off with the Presidents Cup at the end of next month. With Tiger Woods bac… more »

Canadian Open round four: Lucky 13 for Furyk

4 feedbacks »
This tournament will be remembered for the one that got in - Jim Furyk's ace on the 4th - but it's the ones that got away that really sealed the deal. Hunter Mahan had enough 10-15ft opportunities to hold the balance of power by the turn and Vijay Singh… more »

Canadian Open, round three: Mahan could spoil Vijay's day

1 feedback »
There's trickery afoot at Angus Glen, or so say a number players this weekend. They believe the course has been "tricked up" in an attempt to turn a pussy cat into a Tiger. It's pretty much agreed the pin positions are the only thing making this course… more »

Canadian Open round two: Tripped up by an insect

Send feedback »
There was plenty of buzz at Angus Glen Friday, some of it decidedly troublesome. Tripp Isenhour had just a little over 6 inches for par on the 17th when an insect took a fancy to him. Instead of backing away he misfired and lost out on a three-way tie fo… more »

Canadian Open round one: Mahan, the golfer that just keeps going

2 feedbacks »
I've heard some really stupid questions in my time, but there's few beat the interviewer Thursday who asked Hunter Mahan: "Would you say this course fits your game?" Of course it doesn't, you oaf! You do the maths - 18 holes and only three eagles. Clea… more »

Pity the poor Canadian Open. No title sponsor, facing the first loss in its history, and precious few big names this year thanks to its Cinderella status on the PGA Tour, moved from its usual September slot to slap-bang after the Open Championship. There… more »

US Bank Championship round four: Why Ogilvie must be a saint

Send feedback »
So history does not repeat itself, the third-round leader loses the plot, and instead Joe Ogilvie breaks his 229-event duck. If patience is a virtue Joe must be at God's right hand. Mind you, in the end it came down to a fluke: Ogilvie was as surprised… more »

How gutting that the one vital weak spot Sergio Garcia worked feverishly to get right after Hoylake let him down at the last. That missed putt on the final hole of regulation was so unlucky (not to mention the ace that turned into a par in the playoff),… more »

US Bank Championship round three: History is on Lumpy's side

Send feedback »
Tubby Tim or Tiny Tim? It's Herron versus Clark in Sunday's final pairing and the omens strongly favour of one of them. Ominously for Clark, history is firmly on the side of the third round leader - Shigeki Maruyama in 2001 being the only exception in th… more »
