Drug testing for the PGA Tour in 2008

With every other sport in the world having allegations of participants using performance enhancing drugs, I guess it wasn’t going to be too long until the PGA Tour had to face the same train of thought. Though there hasn’t been any players on the tour, that I have heard about or know of, that have publicly been ousted for using …

Live@Deutsche | Tiger’s back | Sabattini Fires back

Is the FedEx Cup a joke? The Tour players think so

It is becoming extremely obvious that not many people can understand the format or the process the FedEx Cup is undertaking, even from the players within its own organization. It reminds me of a job where team members are brought on because of a certain skill set they possess. They all have this idea their opinion matters by speaking at …

Is the FedEx Playoff system confusing? There is a solution

I haven’t drilled down into the internal workings of the FedEx Playoffs and often times with life, in general, I need a ‘dummies guide’ to learning things. Well, Golf.com must have been reading my mind because they came out with A Guide to the FedEx Cup with 6 easy to follow explanations on how it all works. Of course, Tiger …

Tiger Withdrawals from the Barclays

In it’s first public ‘kick in the stomach’, the FedEx Playoffs will be missing one particular player in it’s opening tournament, The Barclays. You have probably never heard of him, kind of a no-namer in this sport and doesn’t have much to his tournament resume, you know that guy…Tiger Woods. Well, he has decided to back out of the FedEx …

Pgatour.com redesigns for the Playoffs

5 to go – Tiger sits on unlucky 13

David Cannon/Getty Images Barry Bonds recently broke the most convented record in all of sports, Hank Aaron’s home run record of 755. I would be willing to stretch my neck out and say that Jack Nickalus’s 18 major wins is another record that would be considered convented in the world of sports. Tiger is now 5 majors from tying that …

It’s Tiger’s world, and we’re just all living in it

Scott Halleran/WireImage As I stated in my last post, Tiger Woods is my favorite to win the 2007 PGA Championship.
