2023 PGA Championship Interview with Jeff Corcoran (MGCG).

As ticket-holders exit their shuttles and enter the main gate to Oak Hill Country Club this May, their eyes will be attracted to so many sights. The 100-year old, Tudor-style clubhouse, designed by Thompson, Holmes, and Converse (of New Tammany Hall fame in New York City) catches and holds many glances. The market boardwalk will […]

The Wedge Guy: What is really needed to be fixed in your game?

I always find it interesting to watch how golfers interact with the practice range, if they do so at all. I certainly can figure out how to understand that some golfers just do not really want to get better — at least not enough to spend time on the practice range trying to improve. What […]

These are the best bets to win the Corales Puntacana Championship in 2023

Golfing’s great take to Austin GC this week for the WGC Match Play, but the jamboree makes little appeal as a betting medium as far as pre-event odds are concerned. Though the event doesn’t contain the likes of Cam Smith and pals from the LIV Tour, most of the world’s top lot take part in […]

The Wedge Guy: It’s not all about distance

Today’s post is going to seem like heresy, but I think far too much emphasis is put on distance and not nearly enough on ball-striking and just getting the ball into the hole. That said, what matters most on the PGA Tour might not be what matters most to the rest of us as we […]

The best male and female professional golfers ever…according to ChatGPT

Who stands at the summit of professional golf? Who is “the best golfer ever?” Is it even fair to conceive of one Mt. Golf or should we be considering a range of peaks? Can you make meaningful comparisons between eras…or not so much? Bobby Jones vs. Tiger Woods…who wins? These have long been questions for […]

The best bets for the 2023 Valspar Championship

You’ll read it everywhere. Valspar at Copperhead is tough. If you don’t know by now, the 7300-odd yard par 71 loses its one shot on a regular course by way of five par-3s, no longer to be called ‘the short holes’ due to four-fifths of them being over 200 yards. In that respect par-3 performance […]

These are the best bets to win the 2023 Magical Kenya Open

It is a shame that the DP World Tour returns opposite The Players Championship, for the Magical Kenya Open deserves more than the scant attention it will receive this week. During the early days of the event, Muthaiga Golf Club held the vast majority of events before sharing duties with near neighbour Karen GC, with […]

These are the best bets to win the 2023 Players Championship

In almost a month to the day, the golfing world celebrates the start of The Masters. Traditionally, this is the week when the hype really ramps up, with The Players Championship being the first sighting of a top-class full field. That has changed, of course, with the introduction of the PGA Tour’s elevated events, a […]

The Wedge Guy: Do you really want to improve your game of golf?

There is no question that golf is one of the hardest, if not the hardest, games in which to become reasonably proficient. For this discussion, let’s define “proficiency” as the level where you can reasonably expect to move the ball around the course efficiently and consistently enough to shoot 90 or better, though your own […]

What is the average golfer like?

Editor’s note: This article is in collaboration with Shot Scope.  You might find that you ask yourself if you are better or worse than the average golfer? Well this article outlines a variety of statistics which will help you pinpoint which areas of the game you are above or below average. What does the “average […]
