    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...

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

    Shane Ryan

  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 ...

  11. Romain Bechu Is Coming for Tiger Woods's Golf-Trick Crown

    Shane Ryan

    The first golf tournament I ever saw in person was The Players Championship. This was sometime in the late '90s, I think. I was probably 12. Sorry, my records from that time are woefully incomplete. The point is, we went on a Saturday, and I have two...

    Shane Ryan

    It's rare in golf to see a gallery cheer for a bad shot, but it happens. The patrons of the game love to brag about the sport's unique decorum, but there are times when rooting interest takes over and fans can't help themselves. So it wasn't a huge s...

  16. 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...
