    Jason Sobel

    J.P. Hayes' recent decision to disqualify himself from the second stage of the PGA Tour qualifying tournament after inadvertently playing with a nonconforming golf ball has elicited deserved applause from those who respect his honesty. The decision a...

  4. Mickelson WDs from Memorial

    Jason Sobel

    Phil Mickelson injured his left wrist Thursday and had to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament just 11 holes into his opening round. As if to add insult to injury, the timing couldn't be any worse. Since employing Butch Harmon as his full-time swin...

  5. Wie to play John Deere (again)

    Jason Sobel

    So, Michelle Wie is going to play in the John Deere Classic this year, it was announced on Tuesday. That's nothing new. She's competed in the tournament each of the last two years and, quite honestly, it's one of her better chances to post a quali...

  6. Tiger finds some motivation

    Jason Sobel

    Tiger Woods has proven he can win golf tournaments anywhere, anytime, under any conditions. The guy needs extra motivation like Charles Howell III needs a diet, but he had reasons to be more inspired than usual to win the Wachovia Championship. Firs...

  7. '04 finalists back on leaderboard

    Jason Sobel

    The tournament was the 2004 Wachovia Championship and the finalists, Joey Sindelar and Arron Oberholser, were a contrast in styles -- to say the least. Sindelar played the part of the rumpled veteran, so set in his ways that he still spent winters i...

  8. Drawing inspiration from Verplank

    Jason Sobel

    Entering Sunday, Scott Verplank hadn't won a PGA Tour event since the 2001 Bell Canadian Open, though he wasn't exactly playing bad golf during that span. Although it took nearly six full years and spanned 138 tournament starts, the winless streak a...

  9. Nelson board yields good stories

    Jason Sobel

    Man, that Butch Harmon is a miracle worker, huh? Well, for 14 holes, at least. In his first tournament since officially declaring Harmon as swing coach, Phil Mickelson was a flawless 4 under with four birdies and 10 pars through 14 holes at TPC-Las ...

  10. Another young American winner

    Jason Sobel

    I spoke with my dad -- a casual observer of PGA Tour golf -- on Sunday morning and he wanted to know if the final round would be worth watching. What's the tournament this week? The Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Is Tiger playing? No, he's not. ...

  11. Tiger starts strong at Bay Hill

    Jason Sobel

    I'll try to keep this in terms that most of you bracket-heads out there will understand and appreciate. A No. 1 seed has never lost in the first round of the NCAA men's basketball tournament. Tiger Woods is golf's definitive No. 1 seed, the ultimate ...

  12. Woods open for criticism

    Jason Sobel

    You can stop bad-mouthing Tiger Woods, stop griping about his intermittent schedule, stop complaining that he's skipping the Nissan Open just to keep his current PGA Tour win streak intact, rather than lay it on the line at a tournament he's never wo...

  13. Woods looks fresh in '07 debut

    Jason Sobel

    He hadn't played in a competitive tournament since mid-December, hadn't played a PGA Tour round since the first day of October. So, despite Tiger Woods' streak of six consecutive tour victories, it was a legitimate question, one we'd ask of any playe...

  14. Life of Riley is anything but

    Jason Sobel

    There's a guy I know. Every time he hears I'm covering another golf tournament in some sun-splashed locale during the middle of winter, or wading through the tall grass at a U.S. Open venue, he'll inevitably tell me, "Man, you've got the life of Rile...

  15. Should you watch the Grand Slam?

    Jason Sobel

    I've gotta hand it to the good people who run the PGA Grand Slam of Golf: They really want you, the fans, to watch their tournament. The 36-hole event, which begins today and features Tiger Woods, Geoff Ogilvy, Jim Furyk and Mike Weir, will be teleca...

  16. PGA should follow LPGA's lead

    Jason Sobel

    LPGA 1, PGA Tour 0. It's been a trying year for the LPGA, as first-year commissioner Carolyn Bivens has seen several top executives leave their positions; scheduling conflicts have resulted in extinction for some long-standing tournaments; and other...
