    Shane Ryan

    Tuesday night, I found myself with a group of fellow writers and assorted vagabonds at a Tucson Steakhouse called Lil Abner's. It was one of those rustic meat-and-potato joints with long wooden tables, no formal menu, and rusted barn relics hanging o...

  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...

    Shane Ryan

  15. The Massive Ryder Cup Preview

    Shane Ryan
