The European Tour goes to Switzerland this week for the Omega European Masters at the Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club. The course is very short, just a 6,822 yard par 71. Look for shorter hitters to triumph here. Miguel Angel Jimenez and Joost Luiten are favourites at 20/1 followed by Paul Casey, Matteo Manassero and Richard Sterne [...]

We are into the second event of the Fed-Ex Cup playoffs and that means that the field has been cut to just one hundred players for the Deutsche Bank Championship. Only the top seventy in the rankings will progress to the BMW Championship and these players are playing for some incredibly high stakes. The events [...]

This week we will be witness to something very rare, a PGA Tour event that takes place outside of the US. In fact, that makes it two in a row because last week the players graced Muirfield for the Open Championship. This tournament is also a bit unusual because unlike a lot of the other [...]

After a great Open Championship where Phil Mickelson managed to win his first Claret Jug, we move to Russia for one of the smaller events on tour. It is the first time that Russia will host an event on the European Tour since 2008 but luckily, this tournament was played on the Challenge Tour as [...]
