  1. The Ryder Cup Preview: Massive, Unhinged, Scottish

    Shane Ryan

    Long after I've become a twisted, bitter shell of my younger, better self (I give it two to three years), there will remain one sporting event that inspires in me those old feelings of drama, history, and romance. That event is the Ryder Cup. Th...

  2. Rory McIlroy Becomes Iconic at the PGA Championship

    Shane Ryan

  3. The Uncensored 2014 PGA Championship Power (and Powerless!) Ranki...

    Shane Ryan

    The cover of the PGA Championship program this year features a picture of Jason Dufner and the words "THIS IS MAJOR" emblazoned below. The point, I think, is to instill a sense of drama and magnitude, but it also seems like a sad little rem...

  4. The Uncensored 2014 U.S. Open Power Rankings

    Shane Ryan

    I just realized something: Unlike the other American majors, the U.S. Open lacks a sweet tagline. The Masters has "a tradition unlike any other," and the PGA Championship is "glory's last shot." Both pretty cool, right? But o...

    Shane Ryan

    You may have heard that Tiger Woods shot a 61 on Friday at the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, setting a course record and tying his best professional round ever. He went on to win the tournament by seven strokes over Henrik Stenson and Keegan Bra...

  6. Phil Wins the British Open Redemption Game

    Shane Ryan

    For reasons that are hard to pin down, the golfing establishment — that stoic, humorless group of talking heads, beat writers, retired pros, and country club big shots — seems obsessed with projecting an image of nobility and tradition. M...

  7. Golf's Most Powerful Power Rankings: British Open Edition

    Shane Ryan

    Don't you hate those people who get all sentimental about the British Open, just because golf was born in Scotland and the windy, damp, overcast atmosphere of the year's third major harks back to that romantic era when shepherds tending their flocks ...

  8. The Climb: Justin Rose Survives the U.S. Open

    Shane Ryan

    Imagine a group of cyclists grouped together for a race up a steep mountain incline. They leave on the gun, and it becomes immediately clear that some of them aren't conditioned for this kind of strain. Their legs cramp, their chests pound, their bik...

    Shane Ryan

    It's June, which means two things. First, the U.S. Open. Hooray! Second, and exclusive to our tiny corner of the Internet, the second of Grantland's monthly golf power rankings. Smaller hooray! The U.S. Open — so named because anyone can qualif...

    Shane Ryan

    The great thing about the opening Thursday and Friday of the Masters is the existence of pure possibility. When you look at the leaderboard, you can ignore the unpleasant fact that someone named Marc Leishman is in the hunt with Dustin Johnson &#8212...

  12. Agony: Phil Mickelson Needed One Putt for a 59

    Shane Ryan

    Yesterday was the first round of the PGA's Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale, and Phil Mickelson tore the course to pieces. It started with a bang: four straight birdies, two pars, and then three more birdies for a 29 on the front. When he birdied three...

  13. The Massive Ryder Cup Preview

    Shane Ryan

    The list of things I love about the Ryder Cup is so long that it could fill a (tedious) novel, and golf fans can probably guess most of them. But if I had to narrow that list down to one abstract thought ... well, I'd probably say that even though...

    Shane Ryan

    Two moments from this weekend's Masters, courtesy of Phil Mickelson: 1. On the 15th hole Saturday, a reachable par-5, Mickelson's second shot hit the green and rolled off the edge into a valley. It wasn't a great place to be, especially with the p...
