I remember walking down the hall of my home course in college from the bathroom to the bar to load up on about a million Bud Lights before heading out for one of my many rounds of golf each weekend just like it was yesterday. Along the wall was a bunch of plaques commemorating various … Continue reading Tom Whitney is Going to Make you Want to Follow the Web.com event this Week
First and foremost, I apologize for being gone for a week and a half or so. Not that I’m delusional enough to think that any of you missed my riveting golf coverage, but I was in the process of moving from beautiful Tampa, Florida to just outside of St. Louis, Missouri. To say that I’m … Continue reading A Few Thoughts on the PGA Championship and Changes to Golf Equipment on Tour
I started a blog this morning titled, “Hate Watching Golf is all the Rage.” Right now we’ve got Patrick Reed yelling at camera men over rattling change in their pocket at the European Tour event, people delighting in Brandel Chamblee shooting 77 at the Senior British Open, and Ian Poulter hasn’t even done anything at … Continue reading Ease on Into the Weekend with a Friday Golf Blog about Golf

Watch Brittany Lincicome Miss the Cut Over the Next Two Days!
I like to throw down a few shekels here and there when I’m watching sports. It keeps things lively. My unit is pretty modest and I don’t do any hedging or worry about value picks or anything like that. Since I know a lot of you out there only really care about golf because it … Continue reading British Open Gambling Picks
One time, when I was a kid, my dad took my family and me to a Nascar race in Kansas City. I was in 8th grade and, believe it or not, three days earlier I had surgery on my hand to repair some fractures that I basically played an entire season of football with. I … Continue reading Storylines to Watch at the British Open
So I do this thing where I caddy at pro-ams. I never worked as a caddy in high school or anything like that. Actually, the way I got caught up in this whole thing was by total accident. I heard about this caddie app that was like uber for caddies. It piqued my interest because … Continue reading It’s Time I Tell You Guys About the Time I Sharted at a PGA Event
So one thing I’m not going to do as the resident Nosebleed golf guy (not talkin’ Dustin Johnson here, folks) is regurgitate golf tournament results to you.
