Golf: The RSM Classic

    The RSM Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The last hurrah after nearly a year comes with the RSM Classic where same as it ever was, Fed Ex points and World Rankings are on the line. Next week we have Tiger back or Tiger’s back but that’s a jolly – this is...

Golf: The OHL Classic

  The OHL Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   One putt…just one putt separated us from the playoff last week and given Kizzire’s Saturday that was something of a bonus. Standing over that putt on 18 it looked and sounded like 9 under would stand a chance given the deteriorating conditions and so...

Golf: The Shriners Hospital for Children

    The Shriners Hospital for Children preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   Back to the US this week after the Asian leg ended last week in remarkable fashion with Justin Rose overturning an 8 shot deficit going into the final round to down 54 hole leader Dustbin. Rose had been playing good golf but...

Golf: The WGC China

      The WGC China preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The 3RD leg of the PGA Tour Asia stop off heads to China for the first of the WGC events at Sheshan International. Let’s be clear this is a great event and should make for exciting golf but as a World Golf Championship it’s...

        The CJ Cup preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The PGA Tour heads to South Korea for the first time this week for the CJ Cup. The second leg of three in Asia the event follows the same format as last week – 78 player field – no cut. No cut events have...

Golf: The CIBM Classic

    The CIBM Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy       Much like the European Tour the USPGA Tour has  - to a much lesser extent certainly – spread its wings and this week heads to Malaysia for the CIBM Classic – won impressively last year by Justin Thomas….so was said of the 2015 CIBM...

Golf: The Tour Championship

      The Tour Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   East Lake Atlanta beckons for the Tour Championship Final - the now familiar East Lake despite the nines being switched some years back.   Down as we are to the top 30 one thing we can’t complain about is lack of exposed from over the track....

Golf: The BMW Championship Preview and Tips

    The BMW Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   After a Labour Day weekend break the third of the play off series, the BMW Championship, heads to the Par 71, 7150 yards ish Conway Farms (was it ever a farm?) in Chicago.   Seventy line up for thirty spots at the Tour Championships next week...

Golf: The Dell Technologies

The Dell Technologies preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     Round two heads to TPC Boston in New England where it will take something for the 96-man field to beat the drama of last week. Spieth never looked a 2/5 shot on Sunday afternoon – until he became 1/8 after yours truly laid him....

Golf: The Northern Trust

    The Northern Trust preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     The playoffs begin here after 43 events on the 2016/17 tour with the first of four events culminating in the Tour Championship at Eastlake won so memorably by Rory last year despite Ryan Moore’s heroics. The Northern Trust is a new sponsor in what...

Golf: The Wyndham Championship

  by @betdetective       A headline tip winner last week at the year's final Major with Justin Thomas getting the job done at $41. It's naturally a much weaker field this week at the Wyndham and an easy (ish) par 70 where low scoring is the norm. We are just going with two picks, one...

Golf: US PGA Championship

 by @betdetective Skeeter's still on his travels so i'm taking the reins again for the final Major of the year, the US PGA Championship from Quail Hollow golf club in Charlotte, North Carolina.   Quail Hollow is a classic 7,600 yard par 71 and the scene of Rory Mcilroy's demolition of a top...

Golf: The Bridgestone Invitational

  by @betdetective       I'm filling in for Skeeter this week as he takes the welcome step from writing about golf to playing it and he was last sighted on the practice tee at Royal St Georges trying to get away with not wearing long socks, as the rules say one simply must.      The...

Golf: The Open Longshot!

        Soren Kjeldsen has appeared on this page a number of times including most recently at the Masters and one reason for putting him up then is equally valid now. He raises his game at the biggest tournaments. He finished 7th in the 2016 Masters and also notched a top 10 in...

The Open Championship

    The 2017 Open Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     Lets start with some home truths. No way is anyone shooting -20 at Birkdale. The course is touted as a fair test but it will never yield -20. The weather in 08 when Harrington won was a handful with wind and rain all...

Golf: The John Deere Classic

      The John Deer preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The John Deer Classic is the last PGA Tour event prior to the Open and thus represents both a last minute chance for those qualified to warm up and a chance to make the field. As a warm up event it just doesn’t make...

Golf: The Greenbrier Classic

Greenbrier Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The Greenbrier Classic returns after a washout in last year. Just two weeks to go before the Open this event serves as a warm up for the top players entered. Even though it’s the PGA Tour and all that this means to the winner these...

Golf: The Longshot

We're now officially in the lead up to the Open Championship and this week's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open from the par 72 Portstewart Golf Club in Northern Ireland should be an excellent test for all players and a great warm up for those qualified for 2017's next Major Championship.  The...

Golf: Valero Quicken Loans National

  Valero Quicken Loans preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   The Quicken Loans will have to serve up something this week to live up to last week’s efforts by Speith. Wild off the tee – left and right – and lucky to boot, Spieth then holded a putt he thought he’d missed to limp...

Golf: The US OPEN

    by @betdetective One hundred and fifty six players line up at Erin Hills, Wisconsin, for the 117th US Open Championship and as has become tradition in this event most of the lucky 156 will be whingeing like Pommies in the rain about how difficult the conditions are compared to the usual...
