TIME TO FORGIVE TIGER?

The reason Americans love sports is that it’s the one spiritual experience you can have with a beer in your hand. We might be about to hack our way through an hour at golf lessons didsbury but we appreciate how the pros do it. We are a fractured, atomistic, self-regarding culture, but we connect through the shared experience of watching humans do superhuman things.

MASTERS FEVER TAKES HOLD

Golf fever has gripped the southern states of the USA as the PGA tour rolls through, climaxing with a big tournament along the road in Georgia next week. I hope to get a glimpse of it but we'll have to wait and see as tickets are rarer than hens' teeth. Let's hope the stars align or I'll be blogging from the outside.

WILL PHIL TAKE TWO

Last week at Doral, Phil Mickelson experimented again with playing 2 drivers in the bag: a Callaway FT-9 Tour Authentic and a Callaway FT-5 Draw. One driver hits it lower, but not as far; the other, higher. (See David Dudek’s report.) Phil could have used 2 drivers today as he cracked his Callaway driver, but couldn’t get a replacement because the rules official said it wasn’t cracked enough. Watch the video below.
