Send feedback »
Don't ever let anyone tell you that Jean Van de Velde has unburied ghosts from his Carnoustie crash of 1999. Whereas he clearly did not have tha maturity to handle a three-stroke lead on the final hole, ultimately making triple, then losing in a playoff… more »

Career-Ender For Davis Love III?

3 feedbacks »
*It must have been ugly. 44 on the front nine, capped off by a quad on the relatively-benignth (get it?) hole. On the back, a double and two singles, sandwiched around his only birdie of the day, on the really-benixteenth (all right, that's pushing it.… more »

Doral Open: Tiger, Mickelson, and last two Nationwide kings together Saturday

4 feedbacks »
The marquee pairing for Saturday at Doral will be Tiger and Phil, no doubt. Both posted -13 before Verplank and Villegas, so the brothers V should play in the penultimate pairing, while the brothers "me" should be the final twosome. Keep your eyes two… more »

What Curtis is to Tiger, Baldwin may be to Wie
