Steve Stricker shares positive news from Tiger Woods’ rehab

Published

on

While Steve Stricker announced earlier this week that Tiger Woods will not be joining the U.S. Ryder Cup team in Kohler, Wisconsin, the U.S. captain also revealed that he has stayed in close touch with the 15-time major winner and is optimistic about how Woods’ rehab is progressing.

Stricker told Carl and Dennis Paulson on SiriusXM’s ‘Inside the Ropes’:

“I’ve talked to Tiger a lot. He’s a part of this Ryder Cup family; he won’t be able to be a captain’s assistant this time around just because of his ongoing rehabilitation to try and get better and try to play golf again, and that is going well. He’s progressing, he’s doing well, things are moving in the right direction.”

Woods suffered multiple leg fractures in a single car crash in Los Angeles in February. The 45-year old was last seen on a golf course competing with his son in the PNC Championship in December of 2020.

Spider-Man’s driver off the deck nearly lands him a spot on the European Ryder Cup team

Published

on

Tom Holland, star of the upcoming film “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” made headlines on Tuesday for a remarkable shot during the Pro-Am for the European Tour’s BMW Championship at Wentworth Country Club.

What’s even more impressive is that a Ryder Cup appearance was on the line.

That’s right, the British actor was paired with European team captain Padraig Harrington, who attempted to talk Holland out of hitting driver off the deck from 260 yards out. Holland stipulated that if he hit the green, Harrington would have to select him for the Ryder Cup team. You can check out the shot below.

Holland, who plays to a 5.4 handicap, hit a brilliant shot under pressure that gave Harrington a real scare. His ball ended up in the front green-side bunker, meaning that the three-time major champion will not be forced to use one of his captain’s picks on Holland.

While the United States team was solidified yesterday, Harrington has yet to reveal his three selections to complete the European team for the upcoming Ryder Cup at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wisconsin.

Patrick Reed’s Twitter suggests that he’s fuming with Stricker’s Ryder Cup snub

Published

on

The omission of Patrick Reed from the 2021 U.S. Ryder Cup team was the big talking point on Wednesday as Steve Stricker made his six picks for the biennial contest that gets underway later this month.

The Texan has an imposing 7-3-2 career record at the Ryder Cup but will be watching the event this year from home after Captain Stricker decided against selecting Reed.

The 54-year-old told media on Wednesday that Reed took the news of his exclusion like a “true champion,” but if the Texan’s activity on Twitter is anything to go by, it’s clear that the 2018 Masters winner is not impressed by the snub.

Following the announcement, Reed liked multiple posts from users on the social media platform who were heavily critical of Stricker’s decision, which suggests that the 31-year-old isn’t one bit pleased with the captain.

Here’s a look at some of the posts Reed liked on Wednesday on Twitter

Stricker pinpointed the “uncertainty of his health,” as one of the primary reasons for Reed’s exclusion, following the Texan’s recent recovery from bilateral pneumonia which left him battling for his life.

The Wisconsin native instead used his six selections on Daniel Berger, Harris English, Tony Finau, Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, and Jordan Spieth.

Justin Thomas reveals success and failures from his list of 2020-21 goals

Published

on

Justin Thomas has always adopted a goal-oriented mindset, and with last week’s completion of the 2020-2021 super season, he took to social media to recap his accomplishments.

While Thomas only hit three of his 13 on-course goals (with a Ryder Cup victory still pending), he was four for four with his off the course ambitions.

Some may say this list was ambitious with goals such as ‘win 5+ times,’ and ‘win 2+ majors,’ but the world number six clearly believes in his abilities and encapsulates the type of drive that translates to career success.

Despite only capturing three of his 13 on-course goals, Thomas still accomplished a lot during this year, including a win at the Players Championship, and 11 other top-15 finishes, even if his season in totality wasn’t up to his lofty standards.

The 14-time PGA Tour winner still has some unfinished business. Thomas will have the opportunity to check off one more goal on September 24th-26th by bringing the Ryder Cup back to America.
