Sympatico Column: Will McIlroy's deal...

My latest column for Sympatico (or as it is now called, The Loop), is now live: The swoosh has a new home – in the middle of Irish golf star Rory McIlroy’s hat. And on the back of his clubs. And there’s a Nike logo on his shirt. For the money...

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...
