Kooch is at it again

May 31st, 2019

To hit a drive that bounces on the fairway and runs in to a divot is bad enough but if it runs in to an old pitch mark that really tries one’s patience. You curse your luck and play the ball as best you can – right? Not the Kooch who decided to try and invent a whole new sub rule!

Tiger Woods bounces back at Memorial

Jun 1st, 2018

Tiger may have won this event five times (last time in 2012), but he needed all his powers of recovery to come back from an ugly front nine which included two bogeys and a double-bogey 7 at the par 5 15th (his sixth hole) where his tee shot flew out of bounds.

When Tiger was asked yet again when he would be making his return to the tour at a golf clinic he was hosting in Las Vegas he replied, "Dude, if I knew, I would tell you.” But maybe he was being a little flexible with the truth.

Patrick Reed swerves the issue

Patrick Reed swerves the issue

Feb 21st, 2020

It was inevitable that Patrick Reed, who is playing at the WGC event in Mexico City this week, was going to be asked about the latest comments from Bob Kostis and Brooks Koepka. Talking after Thursday’s first round he managed to dance around the question.   

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Now Kostis calls out Reed

Feb 20th, 2020

We thought Brooks Koepka had rather put the boot into Patrick Reed with his comments about building sandcastles but ex-CBS golf commentator Peter Kostis went even further this week inferring that Reed was a serial cheat.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the bunker, or waste area, the Patrick Reed saga pops its nose out again. This time its the world number two Brooks Koepka giving his two pennyworth and he, as usual, does not pull any punches. Koepka described Reed’s actions as “building sandcastles in the sand.”

It looks like the PGA Tour are moving to close down the debate on the Patrick Reed saga. Rumours have it that Cameron Smith has been admonished by the PGA Tour for his outspoken comments on Patrick Reed's behaviour at the Hero World Challenge.

The Patrick Reed Saga

The Patrick Reed Saga

Jan 13th, 2020

I didn’t think I would hear myself say this, but I feel sorry for Patrick Reed. Don’t get me wrong the guy has handled the whole affair badly and he clearly was borderline cheating at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas last December. However, due to the Tour’s insistence that the matter has been dealt with it has basically thrown the American to the lions, who in this case are the media and the golfing public.

Patrick Reed shame on you

Patrick Reed shame on you

Dec 7th, 2019

To say that Patrick Reed is not one of the most popular players on tour would be somewhat of an understatement. However, he has done little for his stock in trade with his blatant breaking of the rules at the Hero World Challenge. Some would say he is very lucky to get away with just a two-stroke penalty.

Sep 9th, 2019

Paul Casey has moves up to 14th in the world following his victory at the European Open in Hamburg. The Englishman shot a bogey free 66 that took him to 14 under and squeezed out Scotland’s Robert Macintyre, Austria’s Matthias Schwab and home hope Bernd Ritthammer by one-stroke.

With the Solheim cup a month away they have the Solheim tartan, they even have a tartan fairway what they don’t have is a home player.

Buhai goes clear at Women’s British Open

Aug 3rd, 2019

It was all getting quite crowded at the top of the leaderboard on day two at the AIG Women’s British Open at Woburn on Friday until the overnight leader, Ashleigh Buhai, who was out late in the day, suddenly put her foot on the accelerator to open up daylight between her and the field.

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

When Irish Eyes Are Smiling

Jul 21st, 2019

Ireland’s Shane Lowry produced what he called "one of the most incredible days of my life" shooting an eight-under-par 63 that gives him a four-shot lead going into the final day of the Open at Royal Portrush!  Englishman Tommy Fleetwood is the closest rival on 12 under after a 66 with JB Holmes third on 10 under.  World number one Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose sit one further back but there are tough weather conditions forecast for the final day.

The Giant of Portrush!

The Giant of Portrush!

Jul 21st, 2019

They needed it to be tough out there if they were going to challenge Shane Lowry but in the end, it was too tough and the conditions actually played in to the hands of the big man. For a man who grew up playing links golf up and down Ireland he was always going to be one of best equipped if the really high winds came.

Want to get ahead, kiss your caddy!

Jul 20th, 2019

Lee Westwood backed up a first day 68 with an impressive 67 and is currently tied in 3rd position with Tommy Fleetwood, just one shot off the overnight lead. Based on his recent form this is somewhat unexpected.  What has changed you might ask?  Well he’s brought Helen Storey, his girlfriend, in as his looper and, despite her not knowing much about golf, it just might provide the fairy tale story for one of the finest golfers never to win a major.

Rock misses out on 59 Club

Jul 7th, 2019

Robert Rock of England came close to being only the second man to shoot 59 on the European Tour. After a string of five consecutive birdies, Rock had an eagle chance at the 18th hole at Lahinch to achieve the historic landmark. His long putt from the edge of the green went agonisingly close but missed on the left, leaving Rock to tap in for his sixth consecutive birdie, a back nine of 29 and a third round 60.

Jun 17th, 2019

Congratulations to Gary Woodland who stood firm under the pressure of a charging Brooks Koepka, the world number one and winner of four of the last eight majors he had played in. Others launched a challenge, most notably England’s Justin Rose, but all faded away as Woodland stuck to his task.

PURE CLASS GARY

PURE CLASS GARY

Jun 17th, 2019

GolfPunk isn’t really that into the mushy stuff which makes us generally quite uncomfortable and exposes our lack of emotional intelligence and stunted personal development.  It used to be that it was only the BBC’s series DIY SOS The Big Build that could get to us, but not anymore, now the obvious friendship between US Open champion Gary Woodland and Amy Bockerstette, is quite simply something else.

US Open – Moving Day

US Open – Moving Day

Jun 16th, 2019

Justin Rose shot a third round 68 to close the gap on leader Gary Woodland to just one shot, with the field a further three shots back. Looming ominously in the pair’s rear-view mirror is one Brooks Koepka who shot a bogey free round of 68 to continue his slow, but continuous, move up the leaderboard.

Koepka will make history

Koepka will make history

Jun 16th, 2019

I just placed a bet on the US Open. I got odds of just shy of 6/1 on one Mr Brooks Koepka. My heart is with Justin Rose and, if his amazing short game continues, he may well win but my head says that Koepka will come through to make history.

That’s better Jordan!

That’s better Jordan!

Jun 15th, 2019

Jordan Spieth is very much making the headlines at Pebble Beach.  An eventful second round sees him 1 under par overall after making seven birdies and five bogeys and apparently learning a lesson from Thursday by acknowledging that he is the one making the shots!
