Thunderbear Roars – Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen Shares First Round Lead at 99th PGA Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC – His name means “Thunderbear” and his golf game rises with the sudden ferocity of a storm. Perhaps the most mercurial young rising star of the European Tour, the lanky Danish player born Jakob Olesen, but who pays professionally under his middle name, “Thorbjorn,” shares the lead in the 99th PGA Championship with the USA’s Kevin Kisner at 4-under. It’s...

11-Year Old Erin Hills Becomes Only the Second Modern Era Course in 47 Years to Host U.S. Open

ERIN, WI – Dana Fry, who along with Mike Hurdzan and lawyer-turned-writer-turned-golf architect Ron Whitten, designed 11-year old Erin Hills, site of the 117th U.S. Open, recently said in an interview that, “it’s unprecedented for the USGA to host the tournament at a venue this new.” He’s close to being correct. It’s actually only the second “new,” modern-era course...

Ole, Sergio! Garcia Wins Green Jacket, First Major at 2017 Masters

We thought we’d seen this movie before, and we were ready for yet another heart-wrenching ending.

It was 1998 when we first met Justin Rose. Back then he was a green and grateful amateur, just 17 years old. But that week in July, he ignited the normally staid English crowd into one joyous celebration after another as he nearly won the Open Championship at Royal Birkdale.

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...

Sally Jenkins Wins Gold Medal for Body Slamming Corrupt Olympics Cesspool

We’ve said it from day one – golf didn’t need to be in Olympics. This was just a money grab for the networks, the IOC, and the PGA and European Tours. We’ve steadily reported about the terrible format of the tournament, the devastating Zika virus, the filthy water conditions sickening athletes by the dozens, and the security risks. Now Sally...
