So What Did We Learn at Torrey Pines?

So what did we learn this weekend? Well, for one, Tiger Woods is still a pretty damn good golfer. But, he does still have flaws in his game, most notably off the tee. For about ¾ of the Farmers Insurance Open, it looked like Tiger was going to blow away the field. He was cruising […]

PGA Tour…Seriously, Bro?

So, I kind of went on a rant last night. The PGA Tour issued a release (or maybe it was an email) saying they would revoke the credentials of anyone in the press that tweets play-by-play updates. Uhh, what? As you know, our media regulations prohibit the use of real-time, play-by-play transmission in digital outlets. […]

On Tap this Week: 1/24/13

It seems kind of weird to think about golf right now. On my drive to work this morning, I thought there was something wrong with the temperature reading on my dash. When I got out of the car, it turns out that reading was very much correct. It was a downright CRIMINAL 11 degrees. The […]

Rory and Nike: Does it Matter?

One of the most talked about storylines from the past weekend involved Rory McIlroy and his much ballyhooed equipment change. Last week, it was announced that Rors had switched from Titleist sticks to Nike. All 15 clubs, including a switch from Scotty Cameron to a Nike Method putter. Rory went out and missed the cut […]

Tiger and Rory in Abu Dhabi: They Gone

Welp, that was quick. Coming into the week, we were hoping for a duel between Tiger and Rory. Well we got one. Kind of. These guys played a game of who-can-make-the-least-mistakes. Ultimately, Tiger and Rory missed the cut in their season debut. Rory looked a bit off for the first two rounds. Maybe it is […]

Nike Locks up Rory McIlroy

)   It was one of the worst kept secrets in golf, but today Nike made it official and announced they have signed Rory McIlroy to an endorsement deal. It is rumored that the deal is somewhere in the range of $250 million, which ain’t too shabby. For some perspective, Tiger’s original deal with the […]

Tournament: Sony Open in Hawaii Location: Waialae Country Club, Honolulu, Hawaii Dates: 1/10/13 – 1/13/13 The PGA Tour will continue to spend time in the Hawaiian Islands this week. In January.

Big Freaking 2013 Preview

Well the time has come to get this 2013 PGA Tour Season underway. Well kind of. See, the PGA pumped faked a couple of times on the start of the season and so did I. But I am finally ready to start banging out blog posts. And while, the PGA had a legitimate excuse for […]

We’re Back!

And we’re back… Where the hell have we been? Well, to be honest, last year was a tough one. I went through some personal shit that didn’t allow me to focus my time on this site the way I wanted to. That’s really all I have to say about that. But the point is, Tap […]

This is the Weekend the PGA Tour has Been Waiting For

Life is good for Tim Finchem this week. The Commissioner of the PGA Tour must have a smile ear-to-ear. After an epic Sunday at the Honda Classic, golf has moved to the top of the sports page for the first time in a while. The world’s new number one golfer is the media’s darling. Rory […]

First Rule of Being a Navy SEAL, Don’t Talk About Being a Navy Seal

This week, former Tiger Woods swing coach Hank Haney has a book coming out. Cool. But in the book, Haney divulges juicy nuggets regarding Tiger’s personal life. (Note: not the juicy nuggets I would prefer). One of the juicier nuggets is the fact that Tiger thought of giving up golf to become a Navy SEAL. […]
