Rory McIlroy comes to amateur Bradley Neil’s aid in week he could make slam history

Tiger Woods’ wise-cracking can’t hide the truth – this injury could spell the end of his career

Yet now, seven major-less years on, the grip of Father Time has him by the scruff. This time he hobbled away from Torrey Pines, carrying only pain and uncertainty; baggage, it has to be said, which has become way too familiar in a torrid last year. His friends are concerned and understandably so. Notah Begay, […]

Van Cynical Mailbag: Potent U.S. Team could make Presidents Cup lopsided affair

DUBLIN, Ohio — This is it. This is for all the marbles. It’s do or die. It really is all or nothing. It really is… Nah, I can’t keep that up. Who am I kidding? This is the Presidents Cup. It is a entertaining event. I like it. I usually get pleasure from the group […]

Van Cynical: Fox Sports-U.S. Open deal could break the mold for very same-old Television golf

A confident Tiger Woods could spell trouble for everyone else at TPC Sawgrass

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — The days are extended gone when you can cede Tiger Woods a victory soon after 54 holes, let alone 36 holes, or even assume anything about how he will play the subsequent day. That mentioned, there may possibly be only a single thing you truly require to know about the […]
