She made the putt for an eagle to win by one stroke. It … [Read more...]

Michele Wie–You Go Girl

LPGA Tour player Michele Wie won her first major professional golf championship 2.5 weeks ago at 24 years of age. She won on a great golf course--Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina--the week after the men's U.S. Open was staged there. So, the course was in tip top, major championship condition. And Michele won it in grand style. She held off No. 1 LPGA player Stacy Lewis to win the U.S. Women's Open Golf Championship. She's finally coming into her own with her first major win.Michele Wie … [Read more...]

Are Children Taking Over the Sports World?

Look at all the young athletes who are breaking records in their sports, turning pro at such young ages, and making a mark for themselves even against the best pros in the world. It's astonishing. The LPGA is a prime example. In today's issue of USA TODAY, they've got the cutest picture of an eleven-year old girl golfer named Lucy Li. With that name and her golf swing, she's going to go places. First off, she's playing in the U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. (See my other … [Read more...]

Martin Kaymar Has the Best Golf Swing on the Planet

There are a lot of really good golf swings on the PGA Tour nowadays. Some of it is because golf swing instruction has improved through the years. Adam Scott sure has a good swing. Tiger Woods used to have a great swing, but I think he's lost it somewhat. But I think Martin Kaymar probably swings the club the best of any PGA Tour players now. He sure proved it last week, leading all the way from start to finish at Pinehurst No. 2 in North Carolina. What a start: 65 and then another 65, and in the … [Read more...]

Remembering Payne Stewart During U.S. Open Week

This is U.S. Open week, and pro golfer Payne Stewart will be warmly remembered.

It was designed by the famous golf course architect Donald Ross. Payne won the U.S. Open there the last time that prestigious tournament was held there, in 1999. It was his last tournament win, and he did it in style. Some of the top pros in the world were in the hunt that last … [Read more...]

Christian PGA Tour Pros Are Winning

In the last four tournaments on the PGA Tour, three of them have been won by Christian pros who attend the weekly PGA Tour Bible Study. They are Bubba Watson (second Masters win at Augusta, GA), Matt Kucher (RBC Heritage at Hilton Head Island, SC), and yesterday J.B. Holmes (Wells Fargo at Charlotte, NC). I can't remember if that has ever happened.I'm a fan of J.B. Holmes. I live in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the Waste Management Phoenix Open is played early every year at the TPC Stadium … [Read more...]

Bubba Watson Wins the Masters Again

Yesterday, PGA Tour pro golfer Bubba Watson won the Masters again. It was his second Masters victory in the past three years. He is 33 years old, handsome with brown hair, stands six feet, three inches tall, and weighs 180 pounds. So, he is tall and slender for golf. And he seems to have long arms, which gives him a wide arc for hitting long. And, like Phil Mickelson, Bubba plays golf left-handed. Bubba Watson has now won seven tournaments on the PGA Tour in eight years of competition … [Read more...]

Masters Week with No Tiger

It's Masters Week, and the Tiger won't be on the prowl. Still the #1 golfer in the world, Tiger Woods had microdiscectomy surgery in his lower back on March 31st this year. He's having to be immobilized for two weeks. Recovery from this type off surgery is 3 to 6 months. I don't think Tiger will be playing in the U.S. Open, which is in June. He shouldn't push it. Take it easy.Dr. Robert Watkins performed the surgery. For the past 25-30 years, Watkins has been generally regarded as the best … [Read more...]
