U.S. Open: Who thrives at Pebble Beach?

The 119th edition of the U.S. Open commences at historic Pebble Beach Golf Links on Thursday. This will mark the sixth time the coastal masterpiece has been the host, with past occurrences in 1972, 1982, 1992, 2000 and 2010. Pebble Beach stages the Pebble Beach Pro-Am each year in the winter, so the course is relatively familiar to avid golf viewers, though players only contest two of the four rounds at Pebble itself. For the U.S. Open the course will [...]

Why Jordan Spieth will win the U.S. Open

When it comes to the upcoming U.S. Open at Pebble Beach Golf Links, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy dominate the conversation. But one man who has been making slow but steady moves during the 2019 PGA season is the best bet to win golf’s third major. Jordan Spieth has accomplished quite the turnaround in 2019. He has gone from a top-30 finish at best from January through April 7 to landing in the top 10 in his last [...]

PGA Tour: RBC Canadian Open

Golf switches to north of the border for the historic RBC Canadian Open. For the first time in 30 years, it will take place in June, a week before the U.S. Open. With that change, the Canadian Open lured the current No. 1 and No. 2 golfers in the world: Brooks Koepka and defending champion Dustin Johnson. With the Canadian Open now immediately preceding the U.S. Open, it’s almost guaranteed the fields will get stronger. In recent years the tournament came [...]

RBC Canadian Open: Mount up at Hamilton Golf and Country Club

As a prelude to next week’s U.S. Open, the RBC Canadian Open will again host quite the preeminent field. The proverbial “regulars” will strut in prepared, but who will come out on top on Sunday? Dustin Johnson (+600) is the RBC Canadian Open defending champ and, as of late, has been playing as if he has ice-cold Molson flowing through his veins. Thus, it makes sense that the man with saloon swagger is one of this year’s favorites. Then there [...]

PGA Tour: Memorial Tournament Preview

The Memorial Tournament begins Thursday at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Started in 1976 by all-time great Jack Nicklaus, the Memorial is a coveted event for those who play the game at the highest level. So much was thought of this venue that just 13 years after its opening, Muirfield Village was selected to host the Ryder Cup. In addition to the Ryder Cup, Muirfield Village later staged the U.S. Amateur in 1992, the Solheim Cup in 1998 [...]

Can Dustin Johnson top Brooks Koepka at the U.S. Open?

After securing his second straight PGA Championship on May 19, Brooks Koepka is set to play another major tournament he’s already claimed back-to-back. In 2017 and 2018 Koepka won the U.S. Open at Erin Hills and Shinnecock Hills, respectively, to spark what is now a streak of four major titles since the 2017 season. Should Koepka win at Pebble Beach Golf Links June 13-16, he will become just the second golfer to win the U.S. Open in three consecutive tries. [...]

PGA Tour: Charles Schwab Challenge Preview

The PGA Tour shifts right back to the Dallas-Fort Worth area for the Charles Schwab Challenge at historic Colonial Country Club. Unfortunately for this tournament, it faces the unenviable task of following a major championship. That being said, it’s played on a world-class layout and nine of the top 20 players in the world rankings have decided to give it a go. Previously the PGA Tour had back-to-back stops in the Dallas area, but the PGA Championship moved to May, [...]
