Twitter Blowing Up. Not Because of GOP Debate But Because Rory McIlory is Heading to the USA

This is from Rory McIlory’s Twitter:


In case anyone forgot, McIlory is still the #1 golfer in the world. He has been off nursing an injury, but as the above photo seems to indicate, he is headed to the USA. Why would he be headed here? Where is he going? My guess is the private jet will be landing at the nearest airport to Kholer, Wisconsin. There’s a little golf tournament here next week at a course called Whistling Straits, the PGA Championship.


Psychology 101: After Failing to Win Open Championship Day and Willett Win in Following Week

Jason Day

I’ve been thinking a lot about Jason Day and how close he has come to winning majors over the last few years.  The psychology of winning majors is tough.  You know he has the physical tools to win one, but has yet to overcome the psychological part.

Think about the two winners this week on the PGA Tour and the European Tour, Jason Day and Danny Willett.  Both of those players were on the top of the leader board in the Open Championship 1.5 weeks ago.  All due respect to the RBC Canadian Open and the Omega European Masters, but I think Day and Willett won partly because there was much less pressure than in a major.

Not sure about Willett, but I do believe Day will win a major at some point.  But I think the pressure and psychology of coming so close time after time make winning a major tougher and tougher.


Old Course Caddie Walks Us Through Holes 7-12

Note: This is part two, a repost of a 3-part walk through of The Old Course at St. Andrews by my good friend and Old Course caddie John Boyne (Boynie) of Caddie Golf Tours.  I asked John to give us these hole by hole descriptions for the 2010 (British) Open Championship and he kindly obliged because, well, he’s a hell of a good guy. Check out holes 1-6 here and watch for holes 13-18 coming up next. Many thanks to Boynie for doing this special piece just for Hooked On Golf Blog ~Tony Korologos

7th, High (Out), 371 yards, Par4

One of The Old Course’s quirky holes the 7th fairway criss-crosses with the tee shot for the par 3 11th with which it shares the green. Generally a lot of confusion abounds here with players waiting for others to putt out on the par 3 before they hit their approach shot to the same green. This can be the beginning of the reason why the round, of just 18 holes, will take close to six hours! Unbelievable.
