Americans choke in losing Ryder Cup

My column on the U.S. Ryder Cup collapse appeared last night on Sympatico: Choke. It is a simple word, but in sports it comes with massive implications. But there is no other word that encapsulates the historic meltdown the American team...

Sympatico: Love risks Ryder Cup on picks of...

My latest Sympatico column looks at the decision by Davis Love to pick Jim Furyk, Brandt Snedeker, Steve Stricker and Dustin Johnson, and pass Hunter Mahan by: Hunter Mahan’s timing is lousy. Two years ago a chunked chip made him the goat of...

Sympatico Column: McDowell's Win Caps...

My latest Sympatico column, on Graeme McDowell’s win on Sunday, or Tiger Woods’ loss (depending on how you look at it), can be found here. Here’s a taste if that’s not enough to interest you: A year ago Tiger Woods...

Corey Pavin just announced his four captain’s picks — not surprisingly they include Tiger Woods, Stewart Cink, and Zach Johnson. Oh, and perhaps a little more surprising — rookie Rickie Fowler. Thoughts? I think Johnson is a...

Sympatico Column: Monty's Pick Could be...

My latest Sympatico column went live over the weekend. In it I discuss the Ryder Cup selection — though I’ll admit I never thought of Charley Hoffman as a pick, though some think he is following his win yesterday. US Captain Corey...
