Why do professional golfers wind up with far fewer three putts than amateurs? Hours and hours of practice, for one thing. But it's also due to better putting fundamentals, particularly being able to consistently repeat the same motion.
Charley Hoffman's pure ball striking and solid putting certainly were key ingredients to Monday's final-round 62 at the Deutsche Bank Championship. His 11 birdies clearly helped him run away from the field and vault up the FedExCup point list.

There will be a great deal of attention focused on Martin Laird’s three putt on the 72nd hole, especially that lag putt that ran 7 feet past the hole, or the second putt that never touched the cup.

It was fortunate for Hunter Mahan that he made a bunch of key putts down the stretch at Firestone, because several times it looked to like he either didn't have a pre-set strategy to play the final holes, or if he did, he didn't stick with it.

The seemingly abundent number of low scores in recent weeks will trigger a flurry of questions from golf fans; most notably, are the players getting better or are the courses getting easier?

Carl Pettersson did something unusual this week - as you probably already know. Yes, he shot an amazing 60 on Saturday, and then followed it up with a 67 to win the RBC Canadian Open, but that's not what I'm referring to - not exactly.

Each year when I watch the British Open I am reminded of two extremely important concepts that every golfer should learn and master. First, when around the green, putt when you can. Second, hit down on your woods like you hit down on your irons.

It wasn't long after the beginning of the 2010 John Deere Classic that you knew it was going to be a special tournament. After all, most of us thought that we were going to watch a Paul Goydos runaway victory after he posted only the fourth 59 ever shot on the PGA Tour.

It was another exciting week for golf, starting with our own Illinois' Mike Small winning his third PGA Professional National Championship, the ladies had an exciting four-person playoff and Justin Rose wins his second tournament (and probably should have been third) in the last six weeks.

The shot of the week in this year's Masters (shot of the decades?) was from champion Phil Mickelson; an artful threading of a 6 iron between two trees and over Rae's Creek on the par 5, 13th hole.

First of all, congratulations to Bubba Watson, a well-deserving champion and classy champion here at this year's Travelers Championship! As always, it's a thrill to be a part of what we here at TPC River Highlands feel is one of the best events in golf (no bias here!).

I watched this past U.S. Open with great interest and from a variety of perspectives. Like many of you, I watched as a fan. There's few things in the world more entertaining and fascinating than watching the world's best players take on a course like Pebble Beach under U.S.
