The Simple Pleasures of Watching the World's Best Golfers Play Like Garbage

5 monthes ago   |   By

After a disgusting display last year during which professional golfers were scoring so well that they appeared to be occasionally enjoying themselves, the 2018 United States Open, held at Shinnecock Hills on Long Island, is returning to the type of tournament it should be, the type of tournament it was back in my day : hard as hell, and no fun for anyone.

A 7 and a 78: Ugly numbers for Tiger Woods in US Open

5 monthes ago   |   By

SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. - As Tiger Woods stood in the middle of the first fairway, the last thing on his mind was a 7. That number was the first thing on his scorecard Thursday in the U.S. Open.
