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.

Rickie Fowler is a professional golfer from the United States of America who currently plays in the US PGA Tour.
Fowler had a trophy laden and extremely promising career as an amateur and was the top ranked amateur golfer in the world for a whopping 36 weeks between 2007 and 2008. Such was his prowess as a player during his days as an amateur that many people thought that he could become the next Tiger Woods and was considered as the United States’ answer to Rory McIlroy, who would go on to become world number one and a four time major winner.
But that hasn’t happened and Fowler is struggling to get into the top ten in the Official Golf World Rankings and has managed to win just two titles in his five years as a professional golfer on the US PGA Tour.
After the Walker Cup in 2009, Rickie Fowler announced that he would turn professional and he soon joined the Nationwide Tour, making his debut as a professional golfer with the Albertsons Boise Open. That same year, he announced that he had signed a multi-year deal with golf equipment manufacturers Titleist and also joined the sponsorship of Rolex.
At the majors, Fowler also has struggled to come good and his best result remains a T2 at the US Open and The Open Championship and a T3 in The PGA Championship, all of which have come in 2014, which goes to show that it has taken Rickie Fowler years to deliver on the promise that he had shown as an amateur.
Many people believe that his antics off the field have had something to do with that and until and unless he gets his head straight and focuses only on the sport, he will not deliver on that promise.
