  • Most area courses battling winter damageApr 15, 2014 12:00 AM
    Chicago golfers beware. In most years virtually all Chicago courses are in full swing by the time the Masters tournament tees off in April. This year that wasn’t the case, and that’s not all. The Midwest Golf Course Superintendents Assn. is conducting a survey of its courses this week and executive director Luke Cella doesn’t expect the results to be encouraging.

     
  • Bubba Watson, speaks during a press conference wearing his green jacket after winning the Masters golf tournament Sunday in Augusta, Ga.

    Green jacket and golden moment for Bubba WatsonApr 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    For all the crazy stunts Bubba Watson does for fun, the green jacket was off limits.After he won the Masters for the first time in 2012, he was amazed by the attention the green jacket brought. No other piece of clothing in golf gets that kind of reaction. But that was the extent of it. Watson spoke about his year with the green jacket a week before returning to Augusta National to claim another one. “I left it in the closet,” he said. “Right or wrong, out of respect for the tournament and what it means, I didn’t take it out too much. Didn’t let my friends see it. Didn’t let them touch it. It’s a coveted trophy. It’s a big deal. And I know what kind of hard work it takes to get it.”

     
  • Jordan Spieth made a run Sunday at the Masters, displaying guts on the course that is unfathomable for someone his age.

    Spieth doesn’t need to be next Tiger WoodsApr 14, 2014 12:00 AM
    Jordan Spieth isn’t going to be a great player. He’s already a great player. But he’s also been called “the next Tiger Woods,’’ a title impossible to live up to.

     
  • Jordan Spieth reacts as his ball misses the cup on the ninth hole in Sunday’s final round of the Masters.

    Maybe it’s best that youth wasn’t served at the MastersApr 13, 2014 12:00 AM
    Maybe it's a good thing that Jordan Spieth didn't win the Masters. It would be too depressing for too many hackers if a 20-year-old made golf look that easy.

    Bubba Watson stumbles on moving day at the MastersApr 12, 2014 12:00 AM
    After two rounds of stellar golf, Bubba Watson stumbled a bit on moving day at the Masters. Watson had four bogeys on the front side Saturday — twice as many as he had in the first two rounds combined — and failed to pull away from an emboldened group of challengers that included 20-year-old Jordan Spieth.

    Mechanic gives himself 50th birthday gift at AugustaApr 12, 2014 12:00 AM
    Miguel Angel Jimenez gave himself a belated 50th birthday gift: one of the best rounds ever for a senior golfer at Augusta National. The Spaniard known as “The Mechanic” carved up the course on a picturesque Saturday at the Masters, shooting a 6-under 66 for the best round of the tournament thus far.

     
  • Blackhawks’ air of confidence has this believer convincedApr 11, 2014 12:00 AM
    I’ve got a feeling about these Blackhawks. And I think they do, too. There seems to be quite an air of confidence about them lately, like they not only think, they know they can do it again. And there’s no way I’m going to doubt them.

    Bubba Watson goes on birdie spree at the MastersApr 11, 2014 12:00 AM
    Bubba Watson likes the way he looks in green. He wants to get that color back in his wardrobe. Watson surged to the Masters lead with a spree of birdies on the back side Friday, positioning him for a weekend run at his second green jacket in three years. "I'm trying to get the jacket back," Watson said. "I want that feeling again."

    Will Tiger ever be as beloved as golf’s Big Three?Apr 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    Even if Tiger Woods agrees to hit ceremonial shots at the Masters 40 years from now, will he be nearly as beloved as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Gary Player were? I’m wondering whether Tiger Woods ever will agree to play that honorary role … and what the gallery’s response to him would be.

    Haas leads, with a pair of Masters champs 1 back Apr 10, 2014 12:00 AM
    No nerves. No worries. Adam Scott never knew the opening round at Augusta National could be so enjoyable. With his green jacket upstairs in the locker room for Masters champions, Scott made only one bad swing that cost him two shots in a round of 3-under 69. It was the lowest opening score by a defending champion in 13 years, and it left Scott one shot behind leader Bill Haas on an otherwise demanding day.

    The 80th playing of the Masters tournament, which begins Thursday at Georgia’s Augusta National, won’t be like any previous stagings of golf’s first major championship of the year.

    One after another, some of the world’s best players and favorites to win the Masters trudged up the hill on the opening hole to start their practice rounds. Phil Mickelson. Rory McIlroy. Adam Scott. It was typical of any Tuesday at Augusta National -- except for the absence of Tiger Woods.

    St. Viator’s Halpin earns ESCC Hall of Fame honorsApr 7, 2014 12:00 AM
    At the age of 70, Jack Halpin is still going strong. He can’t imagine leaving coaching.“High school golf coaches never retire,” he said. “It is the best job on earth and I forever thank St. Viator and their former president (Father Charles Bolser CSV) for asking me to be part of the Viatorian community.” Bolser sure knew what he was doing when he hired Halpin. On Thursday, Halpin will be part of the ninth class of inductees to the East Suburban Catholic League Hall of Fame.

    Cost inching up for Mt. Prospect golf course renovationApr 3, 2014 12:00 AM
    Cost continues to be something of a moving target for the Mount Prospect Park District as it finalizes plans to renovate the district golf course. The park board recently learned that the renovation phase of the two-phase project could cost more than expected — roughly $6.7 million instead of just under $5 million.
