Dustin Johnson hit a 450-yard tee-shot the other day and players might as well take advantage of their length. You’d rather carry it 300 yards over the trouble and take a wedge from the rough than taking a six-iron from the fairway into some of these greens so for somebody like Rory [McIlroy], he’s going to use the driver 10 or 11 times a round. Other players will want to focus on keeping the ball in the fairway. I just spoke to Kyle Stanley, who hit a couple of drivers down the last hole in practice but he already knows he’ll be hitting four or five irons off the tee this week. It’s a case of knowing your strengths and playing to them.” Continue reading... Wed, 18 2018 15:55:19 GMT Tiger Woods in frame with need for creativity at parched Carnoustie Links golf enables more senior hands to mix it with, or outplay, young bucks and Woods has necessary experience and tactics to prevailYou have to drill pretty deep in Carnoustie for evidence of one of golf’s greatest stories. Natural Scottish reticence provides the explanation for that. Had Ben Hogan, one of the finest golfers of all time, produced one-off heroics to triumph closer to his Texas home in 1953 it is a reasonable bet that streets, holidays, schools and monuments would bear his name.One of the precious few reference points here is the 6th hole that bears Hogan’s name. A then course-record 68 was produced in the final round as Hogan claimed the Claret Jug by four shots. That ultimately proved one of the less noteworthy aspects in a unique win. Continue reading...

Wed, 18 2018 05:07:00 GMT 2018 British Open Odds: Will First-Time Major Winner Pay Off on Betting Lines? Nine of the last 11 major tournaments in golf have been won by players who had never before won a major title. Will this trend continue in this year's British Open, or will an established past winner come out on top this weekend? Wed, 18 2018 03:22:45 GMT U.S. pays Trump#039;s Scotland golf resort $77,000 ahead of visit The U.S. government paid more than $77,000 to President Trump's Scottish golf resort ahead of his stay there last weekend, according to federal spending records, indicating that Trump's official visit to Europe likely generated revenue for his business empire. Tue, 17 2018 23:38:24 GMT US government reportedly spent at least $60,000 at Trump#039;s Scottish golf resort The US government reportedly spent more than $60,000 on President Donald Trump's weekend stay at his Turnberry resort. The episode is the latest example of the president mixing government business with his personal business. The US government spent more than $60,000 on President Donald Trump's weekend stay at his Turnberry resort in Scotland, The Scotsman newspaper reported Tuesday. The Scotsman reviewed spending records that showed the government spent about $61,000 on accommodations for Trump and his staff at his organization's Scottish golf club. The payments were made by the State Department to SLC Turnberry Limited, the company behind the hotel and golf course. Trump and his staff stayed at the golf club for two nights, as the president played a pair of rounds at the course. Trump said he would be taking meetings and calls while at the resort. The episode is the latest example of the president mixing government business with his personal business. Prior to taking office, Trump opted against a either a full divestiture from his businesses or placing them in a blind trust.  Instead, he passed control to his two adult sons, Eric and Donald Jr., and a senior Trump Organization executive. Trump continues to profit off his businesses, as he has made frequent trips to Trump Organization properties such as Mar-a-Lago and Bedminster as president. Ethics experts railed against the arrangement, saying it was far less than ideal and did not eliminate conflicts of interest. The Scotsman reported that it was not clear whether that payment covered the entirety of the US government's bill. Robert Weissman, president of the watchdog group Public Citizen, told The Scotsman that the total cost of the visit could  reach $200,000 based on past presidential trips. The Trump Organization and the White House did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Business Insider.SEE ALSO: 'An absolute disgrace': Republicans blast Trump for his 'disgusting' press conference with Putin Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: North Korean defector: Kim Jong Un 'is a terrorist' Tue, 17 2018 18:15:17 GMT
