  • ST. ANDREWS, Scotland – Staying about a 4-iron from the 18th green this week, I thought I'd walk over to the Old Course early this morning to see what the first tee looked and felt like for an Open Championship.

  • Golf Talk Central

    Remember when we were kids and our parents caught us doing something wrong? The first reaction was to lie.

  • Unfortunately, Scott McCarron learned a hard lesson this past week during Groovegate. We want out athletes to answer pointed questions but when they do, somehow their honesty is then frowned upon.

  • Someone needs to explain to me why the PGA Tour continues to fight a losing battle against the NFL.

  • HONOLULU – Hawaii is a beautiful place and the people here are equally as beautiful with their generosity and kindness. Everywhere you go, you're greeted with a smile. Everywhere you go, you're treated as if you're a friend.
