After hitting his shot to the 18th green at the BMW, Billy Horschel
took off like a bat out of hell for the portatoilet and who can really
blame him. The tournament is a huge feather in his cap and, well, when
ya gotta go, ya gotta go. It's as simple as that.
At the BMW Championship at Cherry Hills GC this year, they will play
the first hole from 346 yards, which is the same distance that the
course played when Arnold Palmer won the 1960 US Open back. Normally,

In my opinion, Tiger should take time to heal and then start working

I am really getting tired of writing about Tiger Woods, but he keeps

Champions are not born or made, they are forged in the pressure of the
situation and while young McIlroy showed great stuff in the event, he
didn't quite endure the high heat and pressure which could have been
brought to bear if Fowler and Garcia had stepped up their games a bit
As a golf club manager/director of golf and as an occasional tournament
player, I have seen firsthand what can happen when someone "buys" your
caddie and I have sacked a few caddies for taking payment to screw up
If you visit almost any website devoted to professional golf, you will
see at least one story on the guy and probably more before the day is
out. It doesn't matter if the guy is winning, losing or injured and not
