Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open by seven strokes after shooting a second round 75 Saturday. It’s the second straight major championship Woods has failed to reach the end of, the first time in his career he’s missed the cut at consecutive majors.
Phil Mickelson’s money was at the heart of a recently concluded federal money laundering case, according to ESPN’s Outside the Lines. OTL reports on the case of Gregory Silveira, who plead guilty last week to money laundering charges for moving $2.75 million through multiple bank accounts in an illegal gambling…
Tiger Woods isn't golfing. He's taking some time off to rest, to heal, and to work on his game. But according to one dude who probably doesn't know anything, it's all a coverup, and Woods is actually serving a secret Tour suspension for a failed drug test. Today, both the PGA Tour and Woods's agent flatly deny the…
Holy shit! This is Tiger Woods's third shot on the par-4 tenth (his first of the day) at the Farmers Insurance Open. Jesus Christ, he just bangs this thing like a railroad spike, less like a chip shot than Miguel Cabrera rocking a line drive up the third base line, or any Dwight Howard hook shot ever.
Professional golfer Robert Allenby's bizarre kidnapping story—the one in which he claims that he was kidnapped from a Honolulu wine bar, beaten, robbed, and then dumped in a park six miles away—keeps springing more leaks.
The Tour Championship begins today, and it's the first time since 1992 that neither Tiger Woods nor Phil Mickelson qualified. We are, by any reasonable observer, toward the tail-end of a generational torch-passing at the top. The world's No. 1 certainly qualifies as a reasonable observer.
Are the top golfers in the world affected by the quality of their company? Do they lift their performance when they're paired with great players? You wouldn't immediately think so. After all, no golfer reaches the highest levels of the profession without having learned how to block out distractions and simply play…
John Daly, professional golf's drunkest uncle, is 47 years old and still playing the game like someone who's there for the sunshine and the beer more than he is the actual golf.
Paula Lavigne of Outside The Lines has conducted a thorough investigation into the PGA Tour's status as a non-profit organization, and has found that the tour's commitment to charity is not nearly as strong as the suits at the PGA would like everyone to believe.
Here's something to remember if you played 18 this weekend: 19-year-old Jordan Spieth won his first PGA Tour event on Sunday, outlasting David Hearn and 2007 Masters champ Zach Johnson at the John Deere Classic. And it was arguably a long time coming for Spieth. (P.S.: You're so old.)
Deer antler spray may not be effective at delivering a growth hormone, but it does keep giving strength to dumb stories.
Vijay Singh admitted to using deer antler spray, a "supplement" containing the banned substance IGF-1. But deer antler spray is so ineffective at delivering IGF-1 that the PGA tour has decided not to punish him. This is almost more embarrassing for Singh: he may not be suspended, but he did get scammed.
This is sort of agonizing. On the last hole of the Phoenix Open today, this birdie putt lipped out for Phil Mickelson. Had he holed it, he would have shot a 59, which is golf's answer to baseball's .400, i.e. the outer bound of human ability. Only five golfers have shot a 59 on the PGA Tour. Mickelson said after his…
Let us, for a moment, discuss the intricacies of golf. Putting is perhaps the most difficult aspect of the game. One inch to the left, you win; one more to the right, you lose. Good putting requires an incredibly smooth stroke. In recent years, some players have started to use long putters—which they press to their…
Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Tiger says his confidence is growing.
Way back in January we posted this low-quality video, filmed off some schmo's TV screen, of a sound guy tripping and falling as Ryuji Imada prepared for his drive. It was not the pinnacle of sports commentary, but it was a guy falling down, and I thought it was pretty funny.
Somebody wake Dan Jenkins from his afternoon nap and fetch his slippers because there's a wayward PGA penis on the loose. Proud sportswriters, please test that 2011 resolution to ignore this type of tawdry checkbook journalism.
