“May you live in interesting times.”                 —Ancient Klingon Curse It’s Championship Sunday, and not just any Championship Sunday, but the 150th Open Championship Sunday at the Old Course of St. Andrews, the home of golf.

The Sons of Francis, the U.S. Open champions that Madison Avenue Forgot

BROOKLINE, MA – Back in the Dark Ages, the Holy Catholic Church faced a dilemma; a branch of the religion embraced poverty as a defining virtue, in direct opposition to the rest of the monastic orders, triggering a century long power struggle within the church. The teachings of St. Francis of Assisi were the genesis of the discord, and during the Saint’s life he...

The Zen of Collin Morikawa at the PGA Championship

Watch out for the wunderkind…again. Collin Morikawa may have the best attitude of any of the reigning PGA Tour superstars. Here’s a kid – and I choose that word with precision, because 25 is still remarkably young for anyone, and because of the youthful exuberance Morikawa in particular exudes – here’s a kid who won the PGA Championship in his first appearance in...

Battered Bryson – Injury-Plagued DeChambeau Shambles to Missed Cut at 2022 Masters

It’s almost enough to make you feel sorry for him. Almost. At least as sorry as you can for a multi-millionaire athlete with James Bond’s good looks, an astronaut’s brain, media savvy, a mission in life, and grillion-dollar talent:  the fall of Bryson DeChambeau from being the PGA Tour’s “it boy” capable of vaporizing every golf course he plays with gargantuan length...

The PGA of America, PGA Tour and the R&A jointly announced that the Ryder Cup and President’s Cup are postponed for one year and rescheduled to 2021 and 2022 respectively. Well it beats having a Ryder Cup with no fans…which is what we get for the PGA Championship and likely the U.S. Open. From the announcement: The 43rd Ryder Cup, scheduled for...

Whether Wuhan Flu or Coronavirus, it KOs Masters, Major Sports, Vail and Alterra Resorts

Call it Black Friday or Friday the 13th, whichever you like, but that was the day the sports world went dark, along with Broadway and colleges across the country. Wuhan Flu or Coronavirus, whatever it’s called, it’s here. Time to get those 90-day emergency supplies out. Not ready…out. The time to prepare for this has passed. If you weren’t...

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. Turn on your television set, pick up a magazine, or scan a newspaper headline, and it’s almost as if prophets were delivering a message from God that they saw written in letters of fire 30 feet high. And as we’ve inched closer to the Masters, it’s grown more...

Top 10 Things Not to say to ESPN’s Michael Collins in a Pro-Am

Having been, at various times, both the celebrity in the pro am as well as a player, I can attest to the bedlam, mayhem, and chaos a pro am round can devolve to. I once watched a guy playing in a pro-am in Jamaica smack a stone tee marker in front of him, (a giant tiki…decorative and festive, but bad idea for a tee marker) and had the ball catapult into the...

It’s time again for Jay’s Year end golf awards – the Jazzys as we call them. This year’s Player of the Year is clearly Justin Thomas.
