  • Wary Woods needs more telling moments to dispel shades of grey  By : samjack
    There was just a hint of a fist pump on the seventh hole when Tiger Woods slotted his fourth birdie of the round. But whatever air the pump put into Tiger soon leaked out as he played his final 11 holes in a flat one over par. He won’t be up on the jacks overnight, but he’s still not firing on all cylinders.
    For much of this week Woods has played and dressed like a bank manager. Admittedly it would be a surprise if he aped Ian Poulter and strode onto the first tee in a stars and stripes bodysuit
  • GOLF ROUNDUP: Dufner maintains his lead  By : corthing
    Kuchar, the fifth-ranked player in the world, still has a chance to become the first PGA Tour player sinceTiger Woods in 2009 to win in consecutive weeks.
  • Westwood finds best form to stay in with shout  By : samjack
    Showers rushed in on a mischievous wind but Lee Westwood becalmed himself and played excellent golf to put himself in position to collect a decent cheque at the end of the 133rd Open Championship at Royal Troon.
    The third day is when the master golfers make their moves and yesterday he was up to the challenge. The £720,000 first prize that goes with the Claret Jug and the kudos of being a major winner may elude him but his chances are not dead.
    After his three-under-par 68, including four birdie
  • Jacquelin equals course record  By : corthing
    The Frenchman’s flawless 10-birdie effort lifted him two strokes clear of defending champion Thomas Bjorn of Denmark, Britain’s David Howell and Gary Emerson, and Germany’s Marcel Siem.
  • Troon talent gets its due respect  By : samjack
    Unlike the sport which I come from, you will never hear spectators at a professional golf tournament utter the words “Hopeless – I could do better than that”. And certainly not at the Open.
    I was reminded of that fact walking the Royal Troon course last week, watching the trials and tribulations of my good friends and occasional golfing partners Darren Clarke and Paul McGinlay.
    In football you will always get those smart alecks who think they know better than those out on the pitch, whereas thos
  • Levet would love a win without Claret in jug  By : samjack
    Thomas Levet started the first hole of his third round in a red polo shirt and finished it swaddled in blue waterproofs. But although the sky rained on his parade, not much else seemed to get under his skin. The joker had his poker face on.
    Levet isn’t just a personality, he’s many personalities. He describes them as good Thomas, normal Thomas and bad Thomas. But there is also multilingual Thomas, who is learning Japanese and who cheekily talked to Justin Rose in Portuguese after England had los
  • Beware the pitfalls of the trap of Troon  By : samjack
    The 11th hole at Royal Troon has claimed some famous victims and the key to winning the 133rd Open Championship will be negotiating its 490 yards successfully.
    Jack Nicklaus once took a 10, Max Faulkner an 11, and the last time the Open was played at Troon Mark Roe marked his card with a nine after walking off the 11th green.
    A former par five, the advent of golf club technology or perhaps the whim of some mischievous soul at the Royal and Ancient has seen the 11th lengthened by 27 yards and tur

    Ben Curtis claimed Titleist's first win with its AP1 irons. Carroll/Getty Images Ben Curtis claimed Titleist’s first win with its AP1 irons.
    One of the year’s better stories on the PGA TOUR was authored last week by Ben Curtis, ending a six-year winless drought on TOUR with a win at the Valero Texas Open.
    Curtis was the Cinderella champion won the 2003 British Open (Valero T2 finisher John Huh was 13 years old then) and two events in 2006, then a few years later dropped off the radar. This year
  • Tour Report: Toms seeks momentum in New Orleans  By : samjack
    David Toms meets with the media and talks about the layout at TPC Louisiana.
    AVONDALE, La. — David Toms loves playing golf in New Orleans, even if the TPC Louisiana may be a little long for the 45-year-old’s game.
    After all, the Shreveport resident’s victory in the Zurich Classic of New Orleans came back in 2001 when the tournament was played at English Turn. But Toms does have two top-20 finishes at TPC Louisiana, including a tie for fifth in 2009.
    "If they played this golf course like we playe

    Keegan Bradley meets with the media and talks about the advantages of playing his second season on the PGA TOUR.
    AVONDALE, La. — When you win twice as a rookie, including a major championship, a player could understandably get complacent. Not Keegan Bradley, though.
    The reigning PGA champion, who will defend his first title next month at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, sat down with his instructor Jim McLean after that PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year campaign was done. The two took a look at his s
  • Tour Report: Fantasy mailbag: Snedeker’s WD  By : samjack
    Throughout my tenure as the Fantasy columnist for PGATOUR.COM, there’s been a bit of a misconception that because of the connection, I’m privy to the reasons why golfers withdraw between the commitment deadline and their tee times in the first round. To wit, here’s an email that arrived on Tuesday afternoon
    Unless there is published or broadcast information offering an explanation, I’m left to speculate as much as you. Some readers aren’t aware that the touring pros are independent contractors a

    MOBILE, Ala. (AP) Jennifer Rosales birdied five of the first seven holes on the back nine and finished with a 5-under 67 on Thursday in the Mobile Bay LPGA Classic for a share of the first-round lead with Katie Futcher, Lindsey Wright and Caroline Hedwall.
    Rosales, the Filipino player who won the last of her two LPGA Tour titles in 2005, had a birdie and a bogey on the front nine before making her back-nine move on The Crossings course at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail’s Magnolia Grove comple
  • Watson tired but eager to tee it up in Big Easys  By : samjack
    AVONDALE, La. (AP) As Bubba Watson walked off a course carved from cypress swamp toward the TPC Louisiana clubhouse, his path was lined by autograph seekers who held out yellow pin flags bearing the emblem of a golfing shrine hundreds of miles away in the pine-covered hills of Georgia.
    The buzz from Watson’s Masters triumph at Augusta National has followed him to his first encore performance in New Orleans, where he’ll begin the defense of his Zurich Classic victory in the tournament that opens
  • Insider: Who will find the voodoo in New Orleans  By : samjack
    AVONDALE, La. — They have been chasing golf balls and alligators in New Orleans since 1922 when Gene Sarazen won the Southern Open at New Orleans Country Club.
    I know all about that 1922 tournament. Many years ago, I accidentally ran into the "Squire" at Chateau Elan, a golf course just outside Atlanta during Masters week. Sarazen had performed his duties as starter at Augusta National and had a business relationship with Chateau Elan
    It turns out a "Voodoo Woman" had a large role in Sarazen's s

  • Scotlands Eric Ramsay cruises to first Challenge Tour win in Poland at DHL Wroclaw Open  By : samjack
    Eric Ramsay clinched his maiden Challenge Tour title in comfortable fashion after closing with a round of 69 to complete a wire-to-wire victory in the DHL Wroclaw Open.

  • Paul McGinley and Gary Orr lead after round 1 of the KLM Open in Netherlands  By : samjack
