Florida News: Golf
Phil Mickelson is a golf legend not just for his accomplished career on the course, but the way he has carried himself.
For the first time since 2014, and the fourth time in tournament history, The Northern Trust sets up at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey.
With Tiger Woods once more in contention to possibly add to his list of major championships, this time at the PGA Championship at Bellerive, people have been talking quite a bit about the Tiger Effect.
When golf fans turned on their televisions or opened their streams on Saturday, they were welcomed back to The Open Championship with a welcome sight. Tiger Woods, still working on his comeback after several years on Tour shortened or erased by injuries, was making his charge on Moving Day.
Woods still walked away Friday realizing he made it a little tougher on the weekend at Carnoustie if he wants to end a decade without winning a major. A rugged start, a strong recovery, a few putts for birdie, a few he missed for par, and it added to an even-par 71.
At The Open Championship, golf truly looks ancient. The links-style courses without trees, the often brown fairways and pot bunkers that look like they could host archaeological digs look a bit removed from the lush, dark green hues we are so used to during the PGA TOUR season.
Golf is for everybody. That is the motto of Sports Talk Florida’s new podcast Ground Under Repair. Host Tim Williams explains the mission of the podcast before getting into a preview of the Open Championship, and a discussion of a proposed ten million dollar grudge match.
Back at the British Open for the first time in three years, Woods broke from his tradition on Tuesday morning. Instead of being among the first on the tee for practice, he didn't show up at Carnoustie until his news conference just before lunch.
Webb Simpson ran out of sensational shots in the end to keep him from joining an elite group. Simpson shot a 9-under-par 61 for a one-stroke lead over Whee Kim after the first round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier in West Virginia on Thursday.
AT & T also now owns Turner Sports which includes various partnerships including Turner’s deal with the National Basketball Association and the National Collegiate Athletic Association and one of the major sports TV events, the Men’s College Basketball Tournament.
