Importance Of FedEx Cup Playoffs

If you see the playoffs of the FedEx Cup, it has become a domain where golf superstars are born.


There are journeymen, one hit wonders or up and comers who are all found in these playoffs. Most players who sustain show their potential to win in the regular season. However, at the playoff time the big time players only prevail.

If you look at the annual calendar, there are several tournaments that are lined up for a regular golf season and the FedEx Cup usually does not take a significant part in this series of events. The flagship event BMW PGA championship is coming up which tops the priority list among golf championships. It is definitely an important tournament to take part in for the players who come in from the European continent.

Ian Poulter the father of Luke Poulter look like a proud father in every inch, as his Luke in Irish Open proved that the talent of golfing runs deep in the family. He had a fun visit at the Irish Open to the Sky Zone.


Poulter admitted to feeling tired, after going through a hectic week, coming through an Open qualifier of 36-hole at Woburn before hopping to compete at Portstewart.

The legend of Ryder Cup after the third-round 73 has slipped off to eight shots off the lead; therefore, he seems happier for young Luke to take stage as he gave a driving clinic.

Luke To Play Hard This Year

It is not easy staying in the game of golf with new names and young talent appearing every year.


That is the kind of challenge Luke Donald faces every time he prepares to compete in a golf tournament.

However, he has stayed consistent and gained the second place finish every time as he did this year at the RBC Heritage again.

KUCHAR AND OOSTHUIZEN SHARE THIRD POSITION

After 36 holes, JB Holmes had set out on course to remain at the top of the game.


He however made a mess of the final hole and double bogeyed the 12th, thus running up an ugly triple bogey seven which saw him slip to seven under.

The 10 out of the remaining 16 players on the field at Albany went on to break 70 on a second day that could be described as a high quality one. This came on the heels of a low score from Woods.

At the third position, sit the duo of Matt Kuchar and Oosthuizen. Bubba Watson, the defending champion was able to propel himself into fifth place, after he scored a sparkling nine under 63 – the day’s low round.

At both the third and sixth holes, Watson rolled in eagle putts and a third birdie at the ninth, which took him to the turn in just 29 blows. At the long 11th however, he came close to another eagle. (more…)

North Korean Golf Open

Sometimes something might seem great and it might be a reality as well.


For instance, the story of two men from Brisbane who have reportedly duped two officials from North Korea and made them think that they are golf pros who have come to be part of the Golf Open in the country. The story circulated and surfaced in the Channel Nine of Brisbane this very week. After that, the story went viral and the pair was interviewed by The Project on Channel 10 as well as their story having circulated among websites like the Golf Channel, SB Nation, Golf Digest and others.

The men probably tricked or fooled officials to believe that they were there to play in the North Korean Open as professional golfers. The men, however, did not really land up at any major event, but an amateur one in North Korea. Hence, it could be said that it was more as an adventure vacation for them, which also included their participation in a tournament that was a one day golf event. (more…)
