Hittin' the LinksThat's basically a wrap on professional golf for 2015. The LPGA and European Tours held their championships this weekend and the PGA Tour's last FedEx Cup points until January were handed out in Georgia. Over the next month, we only have Tiger's event and a few silly season-type events to get our golf-viewing jones on, until it all starts again in Hawaii.

Hittin' the LinksDon't look now, but 2015 is drawing to a close, particularly in golf.

The PGA TOUR is already on its 2015-16 season, and there's only one more week of FedEx Cup points available until January. The Champions Tour is already on hiatus. Both the European and the LPGA Tours will conclude next week with their season ending championships. The Race to Dubai will crown a winner at the DP World Tour Championship in the United Arab Emirates. The women will gather a Tiburon in Florida for the CME Group Tour Championship, where a Lydia Ko and Inbee Park showdown is expected.

Who Really Won and Lost the Presidents Cup

Nov. 5, 2015     By     Comments (3)

Thrash TalkCalling the Presidents Cup a second fiddle in the team match play events might actually be a compliment. The U.S. players versus the rest of the world except Europe was, by all accounts, a complete bore. The Americans have dominated the event since its inception.

So the 2015 playing of the event was vital to the future of the event. Another U.S. blowout and the event was all but finished. What we got was not only an outstandingly competitive event but also excitement from the participants and even a broader discussion about the involvement of two giants who are just now thinking about graceful retirements.
