2010 Ryder Cup – Tiger Woods hitting Mark Pains Camera

This is by far, my favorite 2010 Ryder Cup photo.  Saturday, during the session one fourballs, Tiger Woods, partnering with Steve Stricker and on the 17th hole, hit an errant chip shot from the rain soaked rough. The chip made a bee line towards MailOnlines on site photographer, Mark Pain. Using his trusty Nikon D3S…

2010 Ryder Cup – Sunday Update

It really broke my heart watching the 2010 Ryder Cup today.  I had high hopes that we would perform  similar to how they performed Friday after the rain delay and come out (excuse the stereotypical expression.. ) “with guns a blazin.” But, alas, Session three ended with USA scoring a measly 1/2 point out of…

2010 Ryder Cup – USA Team off to an early lead

After a seven hour, 15 minute delay due to inclement weather, 2010 Ryder Cup play resumed for two hours Friday afternoon and the USA team squeezed out of an early deficit before dusk halted play until Saturday.

2010 Ryder Cup – USA team bogged down by raingear

My Buddy Tom said it best, “I’m glad I’m not the rain gear marketing rep for Sun Mountain this morning.” The brutal weather experienced on the first day of the 2010 Ryder Cup has taken it’s toll on more than just the course.. After a couple of hours of non stop rain, officials from the…

2012 Ryder Cup: Analysis of the Friday Morning Pairings

The 2012 Ryder Cup Matches get underway Friday morning with 4 Foursomes matches (alternate-shot for you Ryder Cup newbies). To me, the most interesting part of any Ryder Cup is analyzing the pairings and match ups, looking for who might have the edge and what the captains may have been thinking. In order of play,…

USA wins the Orange County National Ryder Cup Event

Last Friday, September 10th, was the much anticipated Orange County National Ryder Cup Event. This event pitted 16 US players vs 16 UK Soldiers from 1st Bn Coldstream Guards, who just came back from Afghanistan and were down in Orlando for a week of “adventure training.” Below are the tournaments combatants.

Ryder Cup Golf at Orange County National

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve always wanted to play in an event like the Ryder Cup, but unlike many of you, I have a serious lack of talent. So, it’s no surprise that I never get invited to play in the cool events, yeah sure, I get my fair share of corporate…

OGB featured in the January 2011 Golf Digest Ambush

Alright, so I embellished a bit.. To say Orlando Golf Blogger was featured isn’t entirely accurate, but it’s writer was! 🙂 A couple months back I wrote about Orange County National’s Ryder Cup event. This was a single day event that pitted 16 of United Kingdom’s finest soldiers from 1st Bn Coldstream Guards against 16…

Tiger Woods 2011 – Taste of things to come?

I saw the cover of the new Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2011 and thought to myself, that’s odd.. why is Rory McIlory on the cover? Then I started thinking about previous versions of the game and was trying to visualize the covers and couldn’t think of a single one where Tiger shared floor space with…
