He was back when he had solo possession of the lead on the final nine of the British Open, he was back when he made a run at the PGA Championship and finished 2nd, and he's certainly back after winning the Tour Championship at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.
Here are Rob "Hardy" Poole's thoughts after two rounds of the Open Championship.
I'm out. All done. No more. I hereby tender my resignation from the position of Predicting Who Will Win the U.S Open.
The only clear cut "winner" over the first two days is the course itself. Thursday's opening round gave us 4 putts, false front frenzy, and over 200 double bogeys OR WORSE.
It's been a problem for a few years. The last 11 major championships have been won by 11 different players. Before that, both Jordan Spieth and Rory McIroy won back to back.
June can be rough for golfers. Just when we get some consistently decent weather, we also get pulled in all sorts of unwanted directions.
During the Player’s Championship at TPC Sawgrass, I was once again forced to endure a number of references to it being “golf’s unofficial 5th major.” No, it’s not. There’s no such thing, officially or unofficially.
First, we're gonna talk about rules. Changes are on the way for 2019, and that's almost always good.
I like to think of myself as handy. As in, "hey, ask Hardy if he'll help install this ceiling fan. He's handy." But if you need some serious work done, like putting in a bathroom or swapping a transmission, I'm not your guy. I don't have the tools or the know how. That's why I…
It’s time to recap the Masters, and I need a template. Good, bad, ugly? Par, bogey, birdie? Both of those would work, but let’s not get too cute.
Halftime at the Masters, which is the perfect time to reassess and realize how stupid we all are for trying to predict what will happen at Augusta.
Before the Sports Hub even launched, I asked if I could do a golf show. The answer was simple; "no." Golf shows didn't work, and I should just focus on babysitting Zolak during the week and a straight-up sports talk show on the weekend.
Some guys can’t win even when they win. The latest example is Rory McIlroy, who did in fact win the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational last weekend at Bay Hill. Rory put on a clinic in the 4th round with an 8 under par 64, 3 strokes better than anyone else in the final round. He…
As I watched Tiger Woods at last weekend’s Valspar Championship, I was reminded of a poem from Dylan Thomas.
The first unofficial sign of spring arrives this weekend in the form of the National Golf Expo Boston. I’ve attended and/or worked the Expo for more than 10 years now, and I’ve compiled the definitive list of do's and don’ts for attending.
My favorite round of golf in 2017 wasn’t a full round. It wasn’t even a full 9 holes. Don’t ask me what I shot, because I didn’t keep score. It was Thanksgiving Day, and in keeping with my tradition of the last few years, I took advantage of the relatively mild weather and empty tee…
Some guys will never learn. Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo will again try his hand at competitive golf in the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship in the Dominican Republic March 22nd-25th. He’s been given a sponsor’s exemption to tee it up against some of the world’s best players, and unlike his debut in…
