GB&I Closing Gap at Royal County Down's Walker Cup

2 feedbacks »
It's one of Murphy's Laws...as soon as you pay homage, it bites you in the arse. Murphy was a good Irishman, and his laws seem to favor the GB&I team at the moment. Rory McIlroy has just whipped Billy Horschel, and Rhys Davies is soundly smacking R… more »

Since so many horrifying adjectives are associated with Ireland and Sundays, I've decided to go volcanic to describe what happened this morning at Royal County Down in the Walker Cup matches. The USA did the unthinkable...by sweeping four multi-player m… more »

Other than Aaron Oberholser, who is clearly the guy to watch today for FEC movement and entry into the BMW Championship, here are my suggestions for story lines: 1. Fredrik Jacobson...-3 through five holes. Currently number 97 on the FEC points list… more »

Hypocrisy of USGA Walker Cup selection committee

7 feedbacks »
Now that I've slept on it, I have a clearer vision of the USGA Walker Cup selection committee's hypocrisy. Here's what we had to perceive as their premise: we value our own Amateur championship so little that we will only hold out two spots based on it… more »

Walker Cup selections...Not what I would have done, but...

Boeing Madness...Seven Tied at Top on Champions Tour

It will only last for a moment, as the 18th is a par five, but I want you to feel what I'm feeling, if only for a brief time. Denis Watson just double-bogeyed number 17, and Ray Stewart birdies 16. Stewart has spent the better part of the day returni… more »

USGA Amateur Championship: Finals Don't Matter for Knost, Thompson

2 feedbacks »
That's not entirely true, but it makes for a good headline. I can now suggest unambiguously and unequivocally that the USGA should select Michael Thompson and Kyle Stanley for their 2007 Walker Cup side. I like Thompson and Stanley over, say, Rickie Fo… more »

Well, not exactly Mount Olympus, but close. The list of Walker Cup hopefuls thins even more as the great eight loses weight. Allow me to elaborate. Kyle Stanley bogeyed two of his final three holes to lose to the outmatched David McDaniel. Jon Curr… more »
