Liguori: Vicky Duval — This Year’s Feel-Good Story At US Open

Liguori: Which Americans Will Go Deep In The US Open Draw?

Liguori: Adam Scott, Jim Furyk Come Out Hot At PGA Championship

It’s great to see the 2003 U.S. Open champ’s name at the top of the leaderboard. Furyk is too good and has been in contention too often not to have won more majors (despite his painful looking swing!)

Liguori: Travelers Championship Values ‘Character’ And Commitment

Why have so many players won their first-ever tour titles at the Travelers? I’m convinced it’s because the staff creates a very friendly, family-oriented environment.
