The plain and simple truth is that Bubba Watson is not like anyone else on the PGA Tour, which is why people have such a hard time giving him his due.

He won two Masters, one more than Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed and two more than Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler and Jason Day.


Pure golf talk, minus any varnish

I start every day with Morning Read. The content and the writing are excellent. Thank you.

I just began listening to Hawk & Rude on my way to work and now have something new to look forward to. John Hawkins tells it like it is. He strips away the varnish and the hype.

So, if you can stand the truth about what’s going on in golf these days, their podcast is worth the time. 



Number of bogeys combined for co-leaders Andrew Landry and J.J. Spaun in the PGA Tour’s Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac (Md.) at Avenal Farm. Landry and Spaun, both Americans, shot 7-under 63 for a one-stroke lead over countrymen Billy Horschel and Andrew Putnam. Tiger Woods, in his first start since a missed cut two weeks ago at the U.S. Open, rebounded from a double bogey on the par-4 sixth hole with two back-nine birdies to shoot 70 (scores).



Heath (Texas) Golf and Yacht Club will be managed by KemperSports, the management company announced. The club, in a 787-acre lakefront, master-planned community east of Dallas, includes 27 holes of golf designed by Roy Bechtol.
