Handicapping Redux for the 2018 Masters

“Tiger and Phil! Tiger and Phil! Tiger and Phil!” For the last eight weeks, that’s all we’ve heard in golf.

And as we’ve inched closer to the Masters, it’s grown more...

It’s actually only the second “new,” modern-era course...

Tiger Woods to Return to PGA Tour Golf at Hero World Challenge

Tiger Woods’s long-awaited return to the PGA Tour will begin at home against the smallest field in competitive golf. Woods will play the Hero World Challenge at Albany December 1-4, starting alongside a mere 17 other players. “A lot of players make their homes right there, so it’s a buddy trip to Ti’s house,” quipped one irreverent wag of a golf commentator, and he’s...

U.S. Dominates Sunday Singles, Breezes to Ryder Cup Victory at Hazeltine

Amidst a tumult and shouting that would have impressed even the great Grantland Rice himself, the United States defeated Europe 17-11, winning their first Ryder Cup since 2008. Patrick Reed preened like an NFL linebacker, Phil Mickelson made putts from Duluth, St. Cloud, and Monkato, and Ryan Moore – the last man to make the team – sank the Ryder Cup...

Minnesota, Hazeltine National, and American Team all Ready for 41st Ryder Cup
