7 feedbacks »
Ian Poulter withdrew Monday from the Johnnie Walker Championship in Scotland, pretty much thumbing his nose at any chances for making the European Ryder Cup team. Instead, Poulter chose to stay in the PGA Tour playoffs and its giant payoff. "It has… more »

LPGA Commissioner Carolyn Bivens is a hero for taking a stance against encroaching foreigners

Finally, someone in authority has said "enough is enough." Mexicans arriving from the South by the hordes. I agree with that Mexican writer who said Mexico may have lost the Mexican-American War in the 1940s, but was winning this one by the sheer forc… more »

At least Sergio Garcia doesn't whine or blame someone else about losing the Barclay's, leaving that for Kenny Perry.

14 feedbacks »
I was waiting for Sergio Garcia to blame the gopher. But, since the gopher or mole or whatever it was got him a free drop, I thought he would go looking elsewhere after his latest choke. To his credit, Garcia did not, after another choke, losing the B… more »

Weak TV ratings without Tiger Woods show huge disconnect between casual and hard-core golf fans

4 feedbacks »
How are you reacting to the absence of Tiger Woods as the PGA Tour enters its playoffs today? If you're one of those who say golf is more interesting now, you're almost certainly a hard-core fan. If you're not even bothering to read this, you're pr… more »

I know the PGA Tour suits hate hearing this kind of stuff, but the FedEx Cup playoffs, which start this week at the Barclays, are sort of like the Subway series without the Yankees. With Tiger Woods out, interest is like the American economy, as in f… more »

Luke Donald out of Ryder Cup, good news for U.S.

3 feedbacks »
Luke Donald, who my wife loves for some reason, is out of the Ryder Cup because of his wrist problems. This is worse news for the Europeans than the fact Tiger Woods won't play for the U.S. because of his knee injury. Why? Donald has a 5-1-1 Ryder… more »

Ben Curtis a good man to have on U.S. Ryder Cup team

1 feedback »
Ben Curtis takes some shots as being a one-hit wonder, since he won the 2003 British Open but little else. He did win twice in 2006, but hasn't come close in a major until the great showing at the PGA Championship last week, which puts him on the Ryde… more »

Here's hoping Sergio Garcia never wins a major

6 feedbacks »
Sergio Garcia doesn't deserve to win a major, which he never will if he keeps this up. He has the talent, he just doesn't have the class. Not only does he choke when the tough gets going, he blames everything but the one thing responsible for his c… more »
