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. He just completed his 40th birthday and has reconciled the fact that his number one ranking has been past five years now. However, he has stayed consistent and gained the second place finish every time as he did this year at the RBC Heritage again.

People like his coaches are with him and help him to keep going. Pat Goss, his longtime coach, feels that they are close to a win again. He knows that Luke is passionate about Harbor Town Golf Links and Donald would make sure that he participates in every event. He has had top three finishes seven times in the nine appearances; he has had at the Hilton Head. (more…)


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…)

Kaymer Is Inspired By Olympics

Martin Kaymer is very much inspired by the fact that he will be soon taking part in the Rio Olympics.

While many of the top players have withdrawn or have not shown interest in taking part in Rio Olympics citing various reasons, the German Kaymer has been thinking about the prospects of playing in the Olympics since summer.

Kaymer feels that Australian swimmer Michel Phelps is the best Olympian that he has seen and met. He would be taking inspiration from the spirited performances that Phelps has put in during his Olympic career to improve his game and to win a medal for his country. Kaymer says that taking part in Rio is not a distraction and it is a source of motivation that is driving him to do well in the US PGA Championship.

Kaymer is looking forward to going and experiencing the Olympic spirit in front of his eyes and does not know how he will be feeling. He says that it will take at least a couple of weeks for the whole excitement to sink in after the games. Kaymer is in good from at the moment and the drive to perform at the Olympics has made a huge impact t in his game.

Kaymer Looking To Improve Disappointing Masters Record

Kaymer’s stints at Masters aren’t what are usually expected of a star of his stature. When he is in his proper form, he is simply invincible. His remarkable achievements at Players & U.S. Open last year would duly prove that.

But then, Martin seemed to have poor luck when it comes to masters. In 7 Masters, the best the golf star could manage is a tied 31st rank which came in 2014. He missed out on anything remarkable at all Masters from 2008 to 2011.

Martin’s Masters stock seems extremely low, so much that the golfer’s odds of victory are listed as 80-1, way behind Kopeka who would be having his Masters this year & that too with dislocated rib.

However, the German great is positive about his abilities and is of firm belief that this time he would be able to improve his disappointing masters record.

“I have not been able to come up the very play that is expected here”, stated Kaymer at the Augusta tournament.

“Then, I took to some adjustments & since the last couple of years I have been playing really well. However, I struggled on greens.” (more…)
