Fate Of The Brand That Is Tiger

There is always a tease around Tiger Woods is regarding his coming back to the major tournaments.


His last consistent appearances stopped in 2015. He started off on a high note in 2012 when he made a comeback by winning three times and then he had about five victories in the next year and even won the title of PGA Tour Player of the Year. However, his performances declined subsequently and that might be why he has taken a back seat in terms of active performances on the courses of late.

There was a time when the public would hang on every rumor and tease about his possible comeback or participation in an upcoming event. With a number of false rumors and starts all that enthusiasm has been waning of late. This was evident when his book launch and even his appearance at the celebratory dinner at the Masters recently did not invoke as much excitement as it should have.

HIDEKI MATSUYAMA COMES OFF VICTORIOUS IN THE BAHAMAS

For Hideki Matsuyama, the year has been quite a good one, and the end of the year, just perfect!


He had started out the year with a victory in the Japan Open at home, while rounding it off with another trophy against a short but strong field in the Bahamas. In five tournaments, he has so far come off with four victories.

In the HSBC Champions and the Taiheiyo Masters, the 24 year old Japanese star had come off with seven-shot victories. And going into the final round at the Albany Golf Club, he had a seven shot lead over Henrik Stenson.

After the ninth hole, he was unable to make another birdie and so got his lead reduced to two shots. He had two more holes to play and thus closed with two pars for a -1-over 73 and a two-shot victory.

“I can’t say that I played well today,” he said. “But I did win Tiger’s tournament, and what a great honor it is.” Continue reading “HIDEKI MATSUYAMA COMES OFF VICTORIOUS IN THE BAHAMAS”

Jason Dufner Takes Break From Polo

Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas shocked everyone by taking group outing on Monday.


They planned this outing to take a break from professional golf. And you will be surprised to know what they did in outing. Well, they played mini golf. This is how these golfers relaxed.

Playing golf is a fun and it is my bit relaxing, but is true only when the game is played taking it just a game rather with an objective of winning it. The professional golf is not like normal golf that is played for fun. This is the golf that makes career of a player; golfers earn their livelihood from professional golf. And thus, while playing professional golfers has to go through a lot of pressure.

And think what would be the condition of the player who is playing for the entire week or month. Jason Dufner, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas too got tired with their hectic schedule and thus decided to take a break from it. Monday outing was part that break. However, for players this break was from pressure and challenge; not the game, because, in the break these winners played mini golf. Continue reading “Jason Dufner Takes Break From Polo”

Ian Poulter third at Puerto Rico Open, behind Finau & Marino

Ian Poulter could not convert his overnight lead into win at Puerto Rico Open, ending 3rd (tied) behind Steve Marino and Tony Finau.


The England man, who has not become victorious at a PGA Tour title since the year 2012, carded a level-par seventy-two in the final round.
That left him one off the leaders, who were separated by a play-off – American Finau beating his compatriot Marino with three successive birdies. The forty year old golfer told that this is a bit disappointing. He is continuing to work on the game to attempt and improve and he know if he rectify a couple of poor shots then his game would improve. Hitting shots slightly too far right at certain times is costly.
Meanwhile, he has lived up to his car-lover repute by sending one of his prized-assets to get some ‘TLC’. Ian, who recently ended T3 at Puerto Rico Open at the Coco Beach, is targeting to win his very first tournament since the year 2012.

Adam Scott Eyeing US Masters & World # 1 Crowns

Adam Scott seems to be in quite a charged state of late. The dapper Aussie golfer is liking the tender green pastures before him & is excited to get back to his long putter time.

In fact, Scott is so confident that he is not only focused on winning US Masters but is also looking forward to dominate this entire season.

“I am not here just for throwing balls up & see where these fall”, remarked the Australian golfer.

Adam was naturally discontent with his performance last year as he could only triumph in one single tournament in 2014. These days he is all set to ablaze the courses with glory & is eager to win back his #1 world ranking.

“We do not find many golfers winning huge & my next challenge is to be among those few guys who actually win in most of the matches. This is my biggest challenge this year”, Scott looks pretty determined to revive his previous winning glory in 2015.

“I am looking forward to challenge the #1 spot. It is that I am eager to put forward my level best that will enable me to come up with highest possible performance.”

At this moment, he is concentrated mostly on his long putter. Continue reading “Adam Scott Eyeing US Masters & World # 1 Crowns”

Adam Scott rues rustiness

Australian golfer Adam Scott believes his lack of match practice over the last few months cost him the title at the World Golf Championship – Cadillac Championship in Florida last week as Dustin Johnson made a sensational return to professional golf, winning the title over the rest of the pack.

Having started the final round a massive eight shots behind the leader, Scott gave the leading bunch a run for their money when he halved that lead at the end of nine shots and was well placed for one final assault on the title. However, a bogey on the 11th hole made him change his strategies and forced him to go all out on attack on a course that is difficult to navigate traditionally. And that proved to be the difference in the end as he eventually finished in fourth place, five shots behind the winner Johnson.

Adam Scott took an extended break from the sport following the birth of his daughter in February and began the season much later than the others. He had last played at the Australian Masters back in December and admits he still feels some ring rustiness. Continue reading “Adam Scott rues rustiness”

Furyk Not Happy With Gleneagles Ryder Cup Course

Jim Furyk has expressed great disappointment with Gleneagles Ryder Cup course. The veteran American golfer took one glance at the course & smelled rat immediately. As per the star golfer Europe have engineered the condition deliberately to create an alien environ to catch the Americans while Ryder Cup commences this year.

“I am tad surprised by this set-up. I did not expect to find 8” rough out on the field & overly long as well as overly thick at places”, stated Furyk.

“Being a man who hits ball comparatively accurately whist I am playing good, it does not actually make me mad or anything, yet it has got kind of different feel. Usually, they allow us to get slightly more wild and aggressive in set-up for the match play & you find recoveries. You aren’t going to find ample recovery shots on the  course here. It would be extremely fortunate if one gets ball on green from say 160/170/180 yards. You are about to get a very fortunate lie”, he continued.

“In the low-lying regions around the greens, there must be some good fertilizer. I am little surprised with the field condition but not exactly sure whether it favors this side or others. It is just the course & we would go and play it.”

Paul McGinley, Europe’s captain has declined any claim regarding using any special influence in presenting the Centenary PGA Course.

“I would prefer to think that I am playing it just straight back when centers round course set-up”, noted McGinley.

“Honestly speaking, the rough here is comparatively thicker in comparison to the ideal- however, that was not a very calculated decision”, McGinley added in.

“We needed to have rough up yet I feel it’s the growing season that has prolonged & thickened it up a bit more.”
