Global Golf Post: Hadwin's U.S. Open...

This week’s Global Golf Post column focused on Adam Hadwin, who tips it up today in the U.S. Open. Does Hadwin have a chance? Probably not. He’s not played well this year, which isn’t a good sign. That said, he’s one of...

Sympatico: McIlroy's U.S. Open Win...

My latest Sympatico column went live yesterday. Here’s a taste: By the numbers Mike Weir shouldn’t have a lot of confidence heading into this week’s U.S. Open. He’s struggled with his driver all year, finding fairways...

Sympatico Column: Pebble Wows At Every Turn

My latest Sympatico column, with some comments from Richard Zokol, about the wonder of Pebble Beach is up at Sympatico:  There’s a lot of debate about who is the hottest star at this week’s U.S. Open. Is it Phil Mickelson, who could...
