Power Returns To AT & T Byron Nelson Where His Stunning Run First Connected

Seamus Power’s return to this week’s AT & T Bryon Nelson in Texas is special for many reasons. It was a year ago the then No. 342 world-ranked Irishman began a run of results that two months later led to a maiden PGA Tour triumph. Power made his way to the TPC Craig Ranch, to the north of Dallas, and for four rounds was never outside of the top-10 posting a superb starting round of 65, and followed it up with rounds of 68, 67 and a closing day 70 to share ninth place. It was Power’s 112th PGA ...

Ramsay On A Promise Daughter Olivia Gets To Put Her Toys In Betfred British Masters Trophy

Wells Fargo Stagecoaches, Gun-Toting Bandits, Horses & McIlroy

….  Bernie ‘Randolph Scott’ McGuire Mention of the Wells Fargo Championship trips a switch and has me thinking of stagecoaches being chased by a gang of masked bandits atop of their equally mean-looking horses, firing Colt-45s that never run out of bullets. It’s an image, I admit, that comes from watching far too many Randolpn Scott, John Wayne or Jimmy Stewart Western movies. Having been in the States for the 2020 Players Championship when PGA Tour Commissioner, Jay Monahan announced ...

Scottish Teen Sensation Connor Graham Inspired By Tiger Woods

Drysdale Draws On Fond Catalunya Memories To Lead Scots In Spain

Scotland’s David Drysdale drew on fond host course memories to head the Tartan charge on day one of the Catalunya Championship at the famed PGA Resort facility at Girona in Spain. Drysdale grabbed four birdies in a three-under par 69 to be trailing three shots behind the leading trio of South Africans Darren Fichardt and Oliver Bekker, along with Dane Jeff Winther in posting scores of 66.

Bob Mac Bags First PGA Tour Ace But No Car Or Bottle Of Zurich Bubbly

Scotland’s Robert MacIntyre was celebrating a maiden PGA Tour ace on day one of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. MacIntyre is teamed with fellow Scot Martin Laird in the unique format but was initially unaware his ball found the bottom of the cup as there was no crowd reaction from around the green at the par-3 14th hole on the TPC Louisiana course. MacIntyre is competing in the Stg 6.1m event on an invitation but disappointingly there was no gleaming new car or even a bottle of bubbly, ...
