Excited Walker eyes Cup debut after stunning year

Making the United States Ryder Cup for the first time had long been a goal for Jimmy Walker, though it was a fairly remote one as he toiled away almost anonymously as a journeyman on the highly competitive PGA Tour. But that changed in the proverbial blink of an eye after the American made a stunning start to the 2013-14 season, winning three times in eight events to rocket up the U.S. Cup standings.

Weeks: After packed schedule, FedEx Cup a hobble to finish

Sounds more like the final round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs than the FedEx Cup playoffs. But to hear the golfers talk, the ridiculous schedule that has been thrust upon those lucky enough to make it all the way to the last PGA Tour event of the year means this will be a hobble to the $8 million purse and the $10 million bonus.

McIlroy surprised by reaction to comments on Tiger

Rory McIlroy is perplexed that his remarks on Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson being on the "last few holes" of their careers caused so many headlines. McIlroy was asked on the eve of the Tour Championship whether Woods and Mickelson not being eligible for the 30-man field represented a changing of the guard.

PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem Says Ratings Up; No Repeat of 2014 Schedule

Tour events were up 7-8 percent this year - these measure the number of people who tuned in during a telecast not playing and somewhat to the fact that we had very few playoffs this year compared to the last two years. And playoffs really do help our ratings.

Rose close to 'a great year' after two 2014 wins

Tournament wins on both sides of the Atlantic have made 2014 "a good year" for world number five Justin Rose, who says a slightly better showing in the majors would have transformed his campaign into a great one. For the most part, the Englishman was happy with his performances in golf's four grand slams where he pinpointed his only blemishes as slow starts at the Masters and U.S. Open, along with an occasional putting lapse.

Leave the pin in to win

One of the many really knuckleheaded things a lot of golf announcers say is "Looks like he's trying to make this chip shot, Johnny - he's taking the pin out!" Personally, I'm trying to make every chip shot, and, because I want to increase the chances of this happening, I leave the flag in almost all the time. The only time I take it out is when the flag is inclined toward the point I think the ball will enter the hole, leaving no space for the ball to drop, thus increasing the chance of hitting the flag and remaining out.

Point/Counterpoint: Do golfers have a right to complain about the busy golf schedule?

With the FedEx Cup Playoffs heading into its fourth-straight week, and with Phil Mickelson withdrawing from last week's BMW Championship in hopes of "resting" for the Ryder Cup, the question has been raised: Do golfers have a legitimate complaint regarding the frenetic end-of-the-season schedule? Two writers, Geoff Shackelford and Sam Weinman , square off on the issue. As a connoisseur of the First World art of pro-golfer griping, normally I'd embrace the end-of-season whining we are hearing about the schedule.
