2018 Honda Classic picks, field: Rickie Fowler defends, Tiger Woods plays again

Tiger Woods didn't necessarily need to play the Honda Classic this week given the strength of the field without him, but his presence in the first tournament in what will be a fun countdown to the Masters in seven weeks certainly enhances the experience. Woods joins a group that includes Rickie Fowl

What's troubling Tiger Woods six weeks before the Masters? Plenty

The positives are easy to miss, or simply take for granted, given the early stages of his comeback and some of the struggles that have been apparent for all to see. Tiger Woods has the power to compete with the game's elite, and seemingly no physical issues related to his spinal fusion surgery that

Rory McIlroy says Jordan Spieth is the most underrated player in golf

Jordan Spieth is many things: a three-time major winner, an elite ball-striker, a tremendous putter, a winner of 11 PGA Tour events before the age of 25. Yet according to Rory McIlroy, despite all of Spieth's accomplishments, the youngster is actually underrated as a golfer. The quote caught my eye

A more equitable, user-friendly global handicapping system is on the way

Consider the golf handicap system, meant to be the game's great equalizer. Except it doesn't always work that way. The catch is that there is no single unifying system employed by golfers around the world. British and Irish golfers abide by different guidelines than their American counterparts, whos

Every week on the PGA Tour, players make putts worth six figures. At the Minnesota Golf Show, it's a rarer occurrence.

Bubba Watson's 2018 Masters odds fall considerably following Genesis Open win

Coming into last week's Genesis Open, two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson had 50-1 odds to win a third green jacket in April. That was understandable. Watson had not played well for the better part of two years and doesn't have a top 30 at Augusta in the last three seasons. Then he won the Genesi

Bubba Watson is a winner again, and there are several reasons that's great for golf

I first noticed Bubba Watson's re-emergence from a hellish 2017 a few weeks ago when he popped on the leaderboard momentarily after a 67-69 start at the Waste Management Phoenix Open where he went on to finish T40. I wasn't stunned, but I was mildly surprised. Watson had just six top 10s in 2016-18

Tiger Woods missed the cut at Riviera, but the Genesis Open wasn't all bad

The full promise of the Genesis Open may not have been realized, but the on-paper hype of a golf tournament is rarely ever met when the shots start flying through the air. Tiger MC'd and Rory, Spieth, JT, and DJ never really got into it. But we still had Riviera, a star in and of itself and one of

John Daly outshines own pants with amazing hole-in-one

Colourful golfer John Daly outshone his own outrageous fashion statement with an incredible hole-in-one during the Chubb Classic. The two-time major champion, sporting a pair of Star-Spangled Banner American flag trousers, provided the highlight of the third round at the par-three 16th of the PGA To


Bubba Watson's emotional win at Riviera reminds us that golf is more fun with him around

The Bubba Watson experience, which we've now watched for a decade, is one that comes with so much baggage. He's a popular foil, has often been a jerk, and is easy to crack on from a distance on social media (I'm as guilty of this as anyone). The critiques of Bubba have often been deserved, and in re


Bubba Watson wins at Riviera for the 3rd time

2018 Chubb Classic: John Daly makes Sunday hole-in-one in American flag pants

John Daly did not win the Chubb Classic on Sunday on the PGA Tour Champions, but he did hit the shot of the day. Daly aced the 162-yard, par-3 16th to get to 13 under on the week (where he finished) and slide into the top 10 of the event. Daly finished a few strokes back of the eventual winner, but
