The Golf Blog says: The days of Phil Mickelson referring to Nike clubs as Tiger Woods’ “inferior” equipment have long since passed. But the questions remain about the equipment, especially now after Nike announced that it is discontinuing its golf clubs. Rory McIlroy appears to be still playing the clubs, except he quickly ditched the Nike putter for a Scotty Cameron putter. He also enlisted a new putting coach. Well, it seemed to work. Rors came from behind to win the Deutsche Bank Championship (the last year DB will sponsor the tourney). Just think how many more tournaments Rory could have won if used the putter he preferred.

The Golf Blog says
: Jimmy Walker won the PGA Championship, edging Jason Day (who eagled the 18th) by 1 stroke. The victory is Walker’s first major, making 2016 a year in which all 4 majors were won by first-time major winners (Willett, Johnson, Stenson, and Walker). The majors were won by 2 Americans and 2 Europeans this year. Now, on to Rio.

It’s also a year in which Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, and Jason Day were shut out at the majors.



The Golf Blog: Video Phil Mickelson goes OB, plus near house on 1st hole of Round 2 of PGA Championship, makes miracle triple bogey

The Golf Blog says: Phil Mickelson sliced and then hooked his tee shot on the first hole for what turned out to be a “good” triple bogey 7. It was reminiscent of Rory McIlroy losing the Masters after hitting his ball near a house on 10 at Augusta.

But 7 wasn’t the highest score for Phil at a major. 9 was, at the 13th hole at Torrey Pines at the 2008 U.S. Open.
