Tiger was at Firestone, and the scene looked all too familiar. Except he wasn’t hoisting a trophy. He could barely bend over to pick up his tee.
All of you newly converted Erik Compton fans can follow him at the Travelers Championship, the PGA Tour event taking place Thursday through Sunday at TPC River Highlands, just outside of Hartford.
What, no ankle-deep rough? What kind of U.S. Open is this? A course with no tall, gnarly rough seems almost unheard of.
We’re visiting the golf world in this week’s That Thing You Missed, how Rory McIlroy’s messy breakup turned into success, another stroke of bad luck for Pablo Larrazabal, the newest women’s U.S. Open player is only eleven and Bubba Watson is up to his old tricks again.
He’s come from humble beginnings. He’s never had a golf lesson in his life. And he loves to do things his own way. That’s Bubba Watson, and he is the proud winner of two green jackets in three years.
Bubba Watson’s second Masters title was nothing like the green jacket he won two years ago.
With all the talk of Tiger missing this tournament and Phil missing the cut, the future of golf is perched at the top of the leaderboard. His name is Jordan Spieth.
When any player goes on a birdie barrage at Augusta National, it’s exciting. When Bubba Watson does, it’s downright exhilarating!
Bubba Watson likes the way he looks in green. He wants to get that color back in his wardrobe.
Bill Haas made a statement with his birdie on 18, and then watched from the clubhouse as Bubba Watson put on a clinic, despite the wind picking up Thursday afternoon, making conditions trickier.

Watson made three birdies on his opening nine holes and was ahead by four shots, but bogeys on 13, 15 and 17 brought him back to the field.
Tiger Woods had two double bogeys and a triple bogey on the back nine for a 44, and he did that without a penalty shot.
Woods was the overwhelming favorite coming into the tournament, and that didn’t change after he opened with a 70.
The resurgence and fine play of Tiger Woods may dominate the headlines leading up to Thursday’s start of the Masters, but it was defending Masters champ Bubba Watson who stole the show during his press conference on Tuesday morning.
