  • Complaining About Rules Not Doing Golf Any Favours

    With all the recent controversy regarding the 'new rules' of golf, particularly due to some very publicized incidents on the PGA TOUR, Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press wrote a piece that puts the onus where it really should be, on the players, to learn, know, understand and play by the rules. He makes some excellent points here illustrating clearly why it should not be that difficult to accept and embrace the effort and intent of the new rules of golf. - ed

    By Doug Ferguson/Associated Press

    ORLANDO, Florida — The memo PGA TOUR commissioner Jay Monahan sent to players on the new Rules of Golf can be interpreted different ways based as much on the timing as the message.

    One theme was to be patient. “We are committed to playing under these rules as we analyze their effectiveness... and it’s important to acknowledge that we are not at the finish line yet,” Monahan said in a memo.

    Another was to look at the USGA as a partner instead of a villain.

    “This is a collaborative process, one the PGA TOUR has been a part of from the beginning, along with all organizations in the world of golf,” he wrote.

    The hope is that it will lead players to stop complaining about the rules and simply follow them.

    Most golfers on the Web.com Tour don’t get to play Augusta National on their weeks off.

    Mike Weir is the exception, however.

    The 2003 Masters champion is planning on playing a full schedule on the PGA TOUR’s feeder circuit thanks to a special exemption category for golfers aged 48-49 – which should mark the first time he’s played more than 20 events since 2014.

  • DeChambeau’s Cutting-Edge Brain Training Method

    Bryson DeChambeau

    By MIKE McALLISTER, PGA Tour

    Every week, Bryson DeChambeau watches a movie. Doesn’t matter if he’s stuck in a hotel room for an upcoming tournament or sitting comfortably at home in Dallas. Usually, it’s an action-adventure; one of his most recent choices is “Deadpool,” the wisecracking disfigured anti-superhero with the salty vocabulary.

    The special effects and dark humor are entertaining, but DeChambeau’s not watching for pleasure. He’s working out his brain.

    Using his travel-sized Neuropeak Pro brain-training unit, DeChambeau pops in the DVD, then attaches a gold-plated silver EEG sensor to his head. The real-time data he receives monitors the peaks and valleys of his brain’s electrical current as the movie unfolds. DeChambeau’s goal is to avoid the spikes that occur at the most stressful, intense parts; he wants to keep his high beta and theta ratios inside a pre-determined range.

    If the activity in his brain fires too high, the movie will immediately stop. Only when DeChambeau relaxes his brain — controlling his breathing, reducing his heart rate, focusing his mind to reach a calm state — will the movie resume playing.

    The 2019 Mackenzie Tour - PGA Tour Canada season is not far away and the first event on their schedule kicking off the season will be at Vancouver's venerable Point Grey Golf & Country Club.

    The Freedom 55 Financial Open takes place May 20 - 26th and leading up to the tournament the organizers are looking for volunteers for a number of roles.

    They also need caddies. As it happens, last year's champion Jordan Niebrugge had his bag toted by longtime Pitt Meadows Golf Club member Nigel Colclough, so it could be your turn this time.

    Along with the opportunity to be up close with many future PGA TOUR stars (both Abbotsford's Adam Hadwin and Nick Taylor played on the Mackenzie Tour and have gone on to record victories on the PGA TOUR), there is a great volunteer package that includes tickets for a Vancouver Canucks game.

  • Phil Mickelson Wins 5th AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Hadwin Top Canadian

    By Alfie Lau

    Phil Mickelson had the most enjoyable 32-minute victory lap at Pebble Beach Monday morning as he and Paul Casey finished their final two holes and Mickelson walked away with a three-stroke victory after a (-7) round of 65.

    MIckelson overtook Casey, the third-round leader by three, with a mistake-free final round that started an hour late Sunday because of inclement weather, was interrupted for another two hours because of a freak hailstorm, and then grinded along until sunset. Mickelson had made his par putt on 16 and with just six minutes left of daylight, hoped Casey would continue and try to finish the round in darkness.

    But Casey, with second place to protect, chose as is his right, to mark his short par putt at 16 and come back Monday to play on rolled and true greens.

    The major stories from Pebble Beach on Friday afternoon when play was called due to torrential rain were: Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson were part of a five-way tie for first at the almost halfway point of the tournament; the weather was frightful, with so much rain Friday afternoon that many greens were flooded and new lakes formed wherever water pooled; a lesser known golfer, like DA Points in 2011, Vaughn Taylor in 2016 and Ted Potter Jr. in 2018 was poised to win this tournament.

    Nowhere was Englishman Paul Casey a story.

    With all due respect to David Hearn, Brantford ON’s most popular golfer at the 2019 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am is NHL living legend Wayne Gretzky.

    Gretzky, along with playing partner Dustin Johnson and their usual Pebble foursome of Jordan Spieth and Jake Owen, were one of the marquee groups playing Spyglass Hill on Friday morning and there is no shortage of fun and frivolity in this group.
