When Phil Mickelson takes on Tiger Woods this Friday in Las Vegas, he will do so wearing his new signature golf polo.

Mizzen+Main on Monday released four colorways of the Phil Mickelson Signature Polo: black, white, purple and navy. Mickelson, who wore the company’s performance dress shirt several times this year, is expected to sport the black polo at Shadow Creek.

“I love Mizzen+Main’s dress shirts – they’re unlike anything else I’ve ever worn, which is part of why I play golf in them,” Mickelson said. “As great as they are, I’m thrilled to launch my own line of polos designed to deliver maximum functional benefits while helping me look my best. These polos have done just that.”

The Mickelson polo, which retails for $89, is made with 88 percent polyester and 12 percent spandex, which combine to produce an ultra-soft feel and four-way stretch. The polo also contains moisture-wicking, quick-dry, wrinkle-free and anti-microbial properties while providing UPF 30+ protection.

The polo also features a sport-fit cut, which provides extra room in the chest and body for improved comfort.

Additional styles are scheduled for 2019 release.

“Having Phil on board to design a collection brings a unique element to our partnership that we know fans will love,” said Kevin Lavelle, founder and CEO of Mizzen+Main. “This is something Phil’s never done before and it’s humbling that one of the world’s greatest golfers has chosen to work with us to design performance polos.”

While golf purists may have issue with the $9 million, winner-take-all match between Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson Friday – namely that the two combatants will be a combined 90 years old when they tee it off at Shadow Creek – gamblers have plenty of reason to watch.

The proposition bets for the Tiger-Phil match in Las Vegas are out thanks to the Westgate SuperBook and golfodds.com.

The money line is holding steady, with Woods the favorite at -200 and Mickelson a -170 underdog.

Fans of Woods can get a good a price on the 14-time major champion to go 1-Up at -120. Mickelson is even money.

The best odds for Mickelson to win are 2&1 at 8-1. Meanwhile, Woods is getting 6-1 to win by the same score.

Among the other exotics of note: one can wager the total number of holes won by Woods (at -.5) against the number of goals scored during the Las Vegas Golden Knights/Calgary Flames NHL game on the same day.

These bets will likely be different than some wagers being offered by off-shore and on-line betting services. Legal sportsbooks in Las Vegas are only allowed to take action on events that can be officially scored.

So you won’t see action there on what color shirt each golfer will wear on the first tee, or which golfer may end up losing the most money on side bets.

Here is a list of the propositions bets available on The Match.

Best of Golf 2018: Brooks Koepka leaves major impact on PGA Tour http://daily-times.sportstonews.com/2018/11/19/best-of-golf-2018-brooks-koepka-leaves-major-impact-on-pga-tour/ http://daily-times.sportstonews.com/2018/11/19/best-of-golf-2018-brooks-koepka-leaves-major-impact-on-pga-tour/#respond Mon, 19 Nov 2018 19:04:00 +0000 http://daily-times.sportstonews.com/2018/11/19/best-of-golf-2018-brooks-koepka-leaves-major-impact-on-pga-tour/ Best of Golf 2018: Brooks Koepka leaves major impact on PGA Tour with wins at the PGA Championship and U.

The post Best of Golf 2018: Brooks Koepka leaves major impact on PGA Tour appeared first on Farmington Daily Times.

]]>

Some day this winter, Brooks Koepka will indulge a now customary ritual.

He’ll go alone to the beach near his home in Jupiter, Fla., sit by the ocean and write down his goals for the year. Some will be shared with his team; others will remain private. That’s been his habit since he turned professional, but it’s difficult to imagine that the ambitions Koepka listed a year ago could have been as lofty as his actual accomplishments in 2018.

He became the first man in almost 30 years to successfully defend the U.S. Open.

At the PGA Championship, he joined Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Padraig Harrington as the only players in the last two decades to win two majors in a season. He was voted Player of the Year, an honor he promptly celebrated by winning the CJ Cup and ascending to No. 1 in the world.

It’s an honor roll that renders his $7 million earnings almost incidental.

“Anyone else, they’re on the cover of a Wheaties box,” said Claude Harmon III, Koepka’s longtime coach.

There won’t be a Wheaties box, of course.

Cereal celebrities are obliged to perform before the cameras as much as on the field of play, and Koepka has repeatedly declined the glitzy media tours that usually await a major champion. A modern PGA Tour golfer who doesn’t moonlight as a pitchman, who simply plays and goes home, is condemned to life below the radar. Even his CJ Cup win and crowning as World No. 1 was unseen by fans at home, happening overnight in South Korea.

The 28-year-old Floridian’s laid-back demeanor obscures just how meteoric his rise to the top of world golf has been. He needed only 105 Tour starts to get there. Seventeen of them came in his outstanding 2018 campaign, which ended in ecstasy but began with something much closer to despair.

In November 2017 Koepka had blitzed the field by nine strokes to win the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan for a second consecutive year, but confessed to Harmon afterward that his left wrist was hurting.

He soldiered on.

At the 18-man Hero World Challenge he finished last, 21 strokes behind Rickie Fowler. At the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the injury flared again as he warmed up for the pro-am. He didn’t break 74 that week. Another DFL, 37 stokes adrift of his buddy Dustin Johnson.

SOUTHAMPTON, NY - JUNE 17: Brooks Koepka of the United States kisses girlfriend Jena Sims as they walk off the 18th green during the final round of the 2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on June 17, 2018 in Southampton, New York. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)

One week into 2018, Koepka shut it down. He would not touch a club for 91 days.

“It was devastating to him, it was frustrating to all of us,” Harmon said of the feeling in Camp Koepka. “Wrist, neck and back injuries for golfers are like football players blowing out their ACL. You have no idea what’s going to happen. Is he going to be the same player? There were a lot of unknowns.”

Koepka began hitting balls again on the Monday after the Masters. He admitted that it hurt having to watch the tournament from home.

“Sitting on the couch made me really appreciate how much I actually love this game and love competition,” Koepka said. “I don’t want to say I was depressed, but I was definitely down.”

He returned in late April, but just weeks later at the Players Championship he tweaked his wrist again after trying to stop a swing when a cart drove in front of him on the range. An MRI signaled he was good to play. A Sunday 63 signaled his game was healing too.

He rounded into form with a second-place finish at the Fort Worth Invitational (another two 63s) then headed to Shinnecock Hills in New York, where he became the first defending champion to repeat at the U.S. Open since Curtis Strange in 1989.

Two months later – another 63! – he held off a resurgent Woods by two strokes to win the PGA Championship at Bellerive in St. Louis, his third major in six starts.

“Looking where I was, sitting on my couch watching the Masters, and to think I would do this, I would have laughed at you and told you there was
no way, no chance,” he said that night. “To do it is really incredible.”

Koepka’s season was noteworthy not just for the wins, but for the manner of the wins. He has long been admired for his athleticism and raw power, but Koepka’s greatest weapon was a preternatural calm on the most nerve jangling Sundays in the game.

“He has an innate ability to not put pressure on himself. I’ve never seen him panic,” Harmon said.

“He reminds me of Nick Faldo mentally. He’s tough. You know he’s not going to fold.”

That even-keeled approach extends to life off the golf course too.

“Compared to a lot of the young guys, he just doesn’t beat himself up. He never sulks,” Harmon said. “There are players on Tour that if you’re supposed to go out to dinner with them and they shoot 75, you’re not going out to dinner. Brooks doesn’t have that attitude.”

It was in 2013 that Harmon began working with Koepka, who was learning his craft on Europe’s minor-league Challenge Tour. He quickly noticed two striking attributes.

“He had a lot of speed, like Tiger back in the day, or Rory. He had the one thing that as an instructor I know you can’t teach,” Harmon said. “You either have that or you don’t.”

Perhaps more surprising was Koepka’s self-belief.

“When I first started working with him he said he thought he could win multiple majors,” his coach remembered, still laughing at the audacity. “I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re on the Challenge Tour!’ He always believed.”

The wins mean more to Koepka than his public disposition might suggest.

After winning his first major last year at Erin Hills, he flew to Las Vegas. On a private jet high over the Rockies, the newly crowned U.S. Open champion held the trophy and wept.

Koepka was no less awestruck when Harmon and his agent, Blake Smith, lined up his major hardware to take photos at his home a few days
after the PGA Championship.

“Holy (expletive)” the champ said when he walked into the room. “I can’t believe I have all these trophies in my house.”

“Everyone thought Erin Hills was a mistake. It was an asterisk,” Harmon said with an edge of disdain in his voice. “Then he goes and wins Shinnecock Then he wins the PGA. Then he’s Player of the Year. And World No. 1.”

That PGA triumph held special significance for Koepka, and not because he became the first player of his generation to face down Woods in the final round of a major. Clipping another opponent at Bellerive really thrilled the champion. Koepka’s idol is Adam Scott, with whom he played in the final round and edged into third place by three strokes.

They had first played together four years earlier in a practice round at Hoylake before the British Open. Harmon had secretly set up the game.

When the Aussie walked onto the tee, a wide-eyed Koepka turned to his coach.

“We’re playing with Adam Scott?” he exclaimed. “Are you kidding me?” Today, Koepka has three times as many major wins as his hero.

The lazy rap against Koepka is that he doesn’t win often enough on Tour. The 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open – the first of his five Tour wins – is his only non-major victory in the U.S. It’s an anomaly that puts him in rarefied statistical company with Andy North as players who have more wins in majors than in regular tournaments.

It’s not a ledger imbalance that troubles his team.

“His game is really suited to winning majors. Who else can say that?” Harmon said. “Rory can say that. Jordan can say that. Tiger can say that. Phil could in his prime. Other than those four, who else could say that their game is built around winning majors?”

Koepka always believed that, even back when he was a scrawny, unpolished kid playing in Kazakhstan and the other similarly unglamorous precincts of the Challenge Tour. Back then he told Harmon that he believed he could get to five or six major wins. That, he felt sure, was a legit target. He’s made a believer out of many since then, his coach included.

“In the next 10 years he’s going to give himself good opportunities to win major championships,” Harmon said. “He’s going to be one of those guys who is going to have chances.”

Five or six majors. A lofty goal, one that might offer a clue as to what Koepka could be writing when he’s sitting alone on the beach in Jupiter. Gwk

Jack Bartlett, aka “Golf Swing Impersonator Guy,” is back – and his latest swing is very timely.

This week, of course, is “The Match Week.” Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will face off Friday in Las Vegas for the chance to win $9 million – or more. So who did Bartlett pick to impersonate?

Yes, Bartlett pulled off a perfect Phil – dress shirt with the Workday logo; the smile, cap tip and thumbs up; the flop!; it’s all too good.

Bravo, Jack, and keep ’em coming!

The last time Brooks Koepka played in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship was 2014. At the time, he was ranked 93rd in the Official World Golf Ranking and had yet to win a golf tournament on the PGA or European tours.

“A lot has happened since that time,” Koepka said.

Koepka, 28, has now won 12 times professionally, including three majors, and after reaching No. 1 in the world for the first time earlier this year is currently ranked No. 2. He also was named the PGA Tour Player of the Year this past season.

In January, he will head back to Abu Dhabi Golf Club in United Arab Emirates, where he will join an elite field that already includes Dustin Johnson and Tommy Fleetwood for the $7 million Rolex Series event, set for Jan. 16-19.

“I’m very excited to be taking part in this tournament again after such a long time away,” Koepka said. “I’ve been determined to include it in my schedule as I keep hearing from DJ, Rickie, Jordan and all the American guys what a great time they’ve had in Abu Dhabi.

“I actually remember my last visit really well as it is undoubtedly one of the biggest and best events on the European Tour’s schedule. It always gathers an unbelievable field and the whole set up of the event is amazing along with the perfect weather conditions. I wasn’t surprised at all to hear it had been awarded Rolex Series status and I can’t wait to return to the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA in January.”
