Postgame Press: Nearing redemption for Tiger

This is a follow-up to a column published on March 14, in which I wrote about Tiger Woods in the Valspar Championship, where he placed second after a great round of golf. I wrote then of comebacks, but now I have more to write about: redemption. Tiger had a spectacular fall from grace in both […]

Teeing Off: Chappell’s highs, Poulter’s lows, and Major outlook

Hello friends, Sam Nowicki here. Welcome to my final column of the school year. Also, major props to anyone who caught the reference of the first sentence. Slide into my DMs, we’ll be good friends. This past week at the Valero Texas Open, Kevin Chappell broke through for his first career victory in his 180th […]

Teeing Off: I told you so

I’m really not into the whole “I told you so” thing … Oh, who are we kidding? I think I’ve been waiting for this moment more than Wesley Bryan has. On Sunday, PGA Tour rookie (and recurring mention in most of my semester’s columns) Bryan won his first PGA Tour event of his career, the RBC […]

Teeing Off: Make it a Spanish trio

Wow. What a finish. Sergio Garcia has finally won his first major in his 74th appearance. The Spaniard has had so many near misses over the course of his nearly-20-year career in the major championships, going all the way back to the 1999 PGA Championship at Medinah, where a 19-year-old Sergio was just edged out by Tiger Woods. […]

Teeing off: O Canada!

In a day that was supposed to be calm and clear for the native son of our neighbor to the north, Adam Hadwin sure made himself earn his first career PGA Tour win. But, he did earn it (as well as the praise of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau). Hadwin entered the final round of the […]

Teeing Off: Stars shine in Mexico City

This week, the golfing world took a trip to our beautiful neighbor to the South: Mexico. The World Golf Championships, an invite-only event (based on world ranking and some other special exemptions), was played at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Naucalpan, Mexico, just west of Mexico City. The event saw a star-studded tournament, with the […]

Teeing Off: Fowler wins, Bryan shines

Another week goes by on the PGA Tour and another superstar wins, continuing the trend of 2017. This week it was Rickie Fowler, the 28-year-old So-Cal native taking home the hardware. Rickie began the day with a lot of pressure on him, as he had never before won while holding the 54-hole lead. Rickie entered the […]

Teeing Off: Mashed potatoes

For the 10th consecutive year, Dustin Johnson is a winner. DJ cruised to five-shot lead, but it was as large as eight at some moments during the final round and it was never close. DJ blew away Riviera as he won for the first time this season in Los Angeles at the Genesis Open. The tournament had […]

Hang it up, Tiger

Another hyped event, another dismal performance from Tiger Woods: Tiger withdrew from the Omega Dubai Desert Classic this past weekend. Well, actually, Tiger never made it to the weekend, withdrawing Friday morning after shooting an opening round 77, five shots over par. Tiger pulled out of the event after missing the cut at The Farmers Insurance […]

After strong recruitment, golf chasing trip to Nationals

The 2015-16 golf season was not entirely successful for the Jumbos. Tufts narrowly missed out on qualifying for the NESCAC tournament, finishing sixth in the qualifier at Williams. That left Tufts 19 strokes behind fourth-place Amherst for the final qualifying spot. The season nevertheless had its bright spots, the best of which was the team’s success at the Newbury College Nighthawk […]
