Actually, it was Peter Kostis (or maybe Butch Harmon) that said recently some of his current students (PGA tour players) can't get the persimmons off the ground.  'Nuff said.   Dale
It appears that the team meeting on Saturday night was a cluster; if you believe what's coming out now.  If in fact Mr. Watson was as disrespectful as it appears then it's no wonder the team collapsed on Sunday.  However, Phil was STILL out of line in making his comments at the press conference.  He should have had a private conversation with Tom Watson before the press conference.   Dale
I'm hesitant to reply the OP because I think he's trolling, but I feel compelled to reply anyway.   There's no question that the golfers of today are a different breed from those 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 years ago.  However, if you gave the golfers of today balata balls and persimmon drivers, they'd be hard-pressed to break 80.  Fact.  That's called leveling the playing field.  Obviously, Ben Hogan can't play today with new technology, but today's players could in fact attempt...
Given that the American women got their asses handed to them in the Solheim Cup, I'd like to propose the women's equivalent of the President's Cup: the Commander's Cup.  Seriously.  Let's take the winner of the Solheim Cup and have them play the Asians in the Commander's Cup in alternating years.  Right now, the Asians are dominating the LPGA, but the Europeans are a formidable opponent when it comes to team match play.  Sadly, I don't see the American's winning another...
Having walked with a LPGA pro-am group, I can tell you first hand that the scratch golfer got creamed.  Here's a summary of what happened:   - The scratch golfer consistently out-drove the LPGA pro by an average of about 10 yards (sometimes more, sometimes less). - However, (and this is big), the LPGA  pro played from the fairway FAR more often than the scratch golfer.  Even though the LPGA courses are short (in comparison), the scratch golfer didn't have nearly...
It was an interesting article, but like others have said, Tiger will surpass Snead without the help.  Also, touring pros played a LOT more tournaments back then, so the opportunity to win was greater than today.  Can you imagine today's pros even attempting to play the type of schedule that they did back in the day?  And having to drive to each tournament, instead of fly?  Yeah, I can see it now:  Ah...Phil, here's your station wagon for the next 6 months.  Make sure you...
It's amazing how once the media jumps on a story of someone, they'll ride that horse till it collapses.  I think Stacey Lewis falls in this category. Yes, she had a horrible childhood disease and overcame all odds to become a professional golfer.  That doesn't make her Mother Theresa.  On the contrary.  The media has been comparing her to Sorenstam already, and she hasn't played long enough yet to warrant that comparison.  She plays with a chip on her shoulder, much like...
The PGA tour (and LPGA for that matter) is a microcosm of the world, with the same type of jerks and non-jerks as other industries.  How many of us have worked with (or known) jerks in our places of work?  I'm sure everyone has had to deal with jerks at one time or another.  Why should it be any different for professional golfers?  Or professional football players?   Dale
I was one that bought into the hype of Wie back when she almost won the Dinah Shore tournament as an amateur.  Playing on the PGA tour with the men was a huge mistake, at least mentally, because she was a young teenager at the time, and was not emotionally ready for that type of pressure.  Sadly, she'll never return to her true form at this point; I think mainly because she realizes that there is more to life than golf.  I applaud her for getting her education at...
