Mike Davis, the USGA director has stressed that the US Open participants should take time out to learn about the new venue of the esteemed championship this year if they are looking forward to come up with a strong play.
US Open 2015 would be hosted at Chambers Bay and is scheduled to start from 18th of June.
Davis has urged the players to gather comprehensive information about the course, including undulating green, rolling fairways & distinct bounces of this 8-year-old course that is situated near Puget Sound.
“I would say that if the players are looking to succeed at US Open this year, they must take a comprehensive study of this golf course & try to learn from it”, stated Davis in one his recent media meets for this year’s US Open championship.
“If one thinks that he would just arrive, have 2 practice rounds & simply walk in with yardage book, he won’t be able to win US Open this time.”
After long anticipation, US Open is finally about to arrive at Pacific Northwest and would be hosted by the young Chambers Bay. What is interesting here is that no course ever has received the allowance of hosting a national tournament at such a young age. None of the golf courses which features fine fescue layout has ever been the host for US Open. Continue reading ‘Golfers Must Take Effort To Learn About Chambers Bay: USGA directorrgb’

British golfer Justin Rose has committed to play in the Zurich Classic that will take place in New Orleans this year. With the confirmation of the world number 10 being present at the event, it gives the New Orleans stop of the US PGA Tour at least two players ranked inside the top 10 in its line up.
The tournament is scheduled to take place between the 23rd and 26th of April at the TPC, Louisiana. World number five Jason Day has already committed himself to playing in the event earlier this month.
Steve Worthy, the CEO of the Fore! Kids Foundation which organises the Zurich Classic said that Rose has established as among the best of the new generation of golfers coming through and he has won tournaments all over the world. Rose has six victories on the US PGA Tour apart from seven titles on the European Tour.
2014 was a stellar season for Justin Rose as he won the Quicken Loans National in June and had eight finishes inside the top ten as well as 13 top 25 finishes. He has won a title each other for the last three years and was also a part of the victorious Ryder Cup team of Europe last year. Continue reading ‘Justin Rose to play in Zurich Classicrgb’

Matt Kuchar believes that the advice that has always been passed on for years in the PGA Tour does have some value to it but he doesn’t like it much. His belief and liking forms a 20:80 ratio.
Kuchar said that when he started playing, he remembers a few of the people telling him that every player makes 80% of their money in the starting 20% of their game. What the idea really meant was that one time you will be famous and wanted and then will fade up a bit.
The best example would be Scott Stallings as he won last year at Torrey Pines for the Farmers Insurance Open and he had finished in the top 30. One week there accounted for about 79% of the earnings he makes in the whole season. Continue reading ‘Matt Kuchar Gaining In Numbersrgb’

Rory McIlroy & Graeme McDowell might be opposite parties in courts & didn’t play together at this year’s Ryder yet the dup has proved again that everything is fine between them thanks to their shatterproof bond.
Seconds after Graeme sank the victorious putt on seventeenth green, it was none other than McIlroy who ran up to clasp his old pal in a warm bear hug. That was quite a tearful moment which glistened not just with sporting camaraderie but a loving human heart.
At that very magical moment the entire golf world- which had been abuzz with the news of a tragic rift between the two friends- understood that there was never any question of parting between the buddies and everything said against their friendship was just a bad rumor embellished by media & ill-minded players.
It’s to stress here that “brotherhood” is not usually common with pro golfers, probably because the game is an individual pursuit. There’s generally an intensely single-minded, egocentric approach but Rory is one rarest of characters: an individual golf genius who is one ultimate squad player as well.
“Really glad for Donaldson as he sealed the victory for us, He has been really fantastic all through the week”, remarked Rory as a true team player.
“I cannot say enough on McGinley. Paul has been really fantastic”, Rory’s sense of fraternity is actually genuine.
On the other hand, Graeme reflects some similar qualities as well and this common sense of fraternity might be one of the most significant things that have founded his shatterproof bond with Rory.
Interestingly, both McIlroy and McDowell was in serious trouble while they had to determine national allegiance in 2016 Olympics. It was really difficult for them to pick one between Ireland & Britain but both of them stuck to the former.
