Well as some expected, John Rollins choked away the lead that he had to start the day. His day began with back to back bogeys, but he managed to get back on course with an eagle on the Par 5/13th. After that eagle, it looked like Rollins would be able to take it the distance, but he followed the eagle with bogeys on the Par 4/14th and the Par 3/16th. Rollins let it slip away and finished the tournament in 2nd place. Enter Nick Watney. (more…)

Sorry for not getting you a recap of Round 2 yesterday. I dropped my cell phone in the toilet (pre-urination), had to go to the cell phone store, coached a basketball game, and then made an unexpected stop at a local watering hole after the game with my coaching staff which, mind you, has been labeled the biggest and best coaching staff in the city of Cleveland… Anyway, now a little something about, you know, golf.

John Rollins has managed to make his way to the top of the leaderboard after starting the round in second place. Rollins shot a -2, 70 for a overall score of -12. That is good for a three shot lead over Camilo Villegas. Villegas who  started the round alone in first place to start Saturday, found some trouble in the sand throughout his day. When on the Par 5, 9th he again found himself in the sand. Then on his next shot out, he flew the green, which capped off a double bogey to finish his front 9. He posted 2 birdies, 13 pars, 2 bogeys, and 1 double bogey for a +2, 74. Overall not terrible, but he’s lucky to be in 2nd place. (more…)

Well the first round is in the books, here’s what you’ve missed…

Camillo got off to a nice start, posting a score of -9, 63, good enough for a three stroke and day one lead. He posted 8 birdies, 1 eagle, and 1 bogey. The eagle was on the par 4 second hole where he holed out his second shot. I told you guys to expect some pretty low scores this week…just think if Tiger were playing AND 100% healthy. No offense to Camillo, but if he can shoot 63 in round one on the North Course, I can’t imagine what TW would score. I have to agree with Dan saying that Mahan has something special up his sleeve for at least one round this week…put him on the easier North Course and maybe we’ll see something special. (more…)

Every week we’re going to do a power rankings of the top 17 players worldwide at the moment.  Why 17?  Because it’s my party and I can cry if I want to.  Also, we’ll just be naming it after the PGA Tour stop that week, but will be including international players, so don’t worry, we’re not oblivious to to the linksy goodness across the pond.

Yay!  Lists!

As the season progresses, you’ll notice some early fluctuation due to the lack of tournaments to base things off of, but they will become more static, probably around The Players or so.  While we’re going to try and keep these things based on this year’s results only, there are a few guys who have the requisite resumes that buy them the benefit of the doubt and some others with such great potential that it’d be a shame to leave them off.

After the jump, our rankings, and feel free to leave your thoughts below.
