2016 PGA Championship Predictions

The PGA Championship, considered by some to be the forgotten major, comes to us a little early this year thanks to golf's return to the Summer Olympics. And once again, it returns to the iconic Tillinghast course, Baltusrol, for the second time.

The PGA always features a strong field and this edition is the strongest yet. Who will claim golf's last chance at a major for 2016? Here are my predictions.

There may still be a week to go until the (non-waiver) trade deadline but the biggest deal this go-around may have just occurred. The Chicago Cubs, still holding onto the best record in the majors despite inconsistent play the past two months, have made a bold move to solidify the back of their bullpen by acquiring Aroldis Chapman from the Yankees. In doing so, they will send their top prospect, shortstop Gleyber Torres, as well as pitcher Adam Warren and prospects Rashad Crawford and Billy McKinney to the Bronx.

In a season in which the goals for the team are clear, consider this move to be akin to putting their chips to the center of the table.

Fanatic Radio 7/13/16 - Pyramids of Giza

Tim Duncan retires and Fanatic Radio gives a melancholy farewell to the greatest power forward in the game and what made him so unique in the era of clogged-toilet basketball. Mike and Ben also break down the MLB All Star Game, the on-going generation battle and the rare funk baseball will forever be in.


We also answer questions from the FR mailbag like what is golf to do with Tiger over-the-hill and the failed Olympic return and would you dive over the line to go to the Olympics? We're here for the free food and booze. Also check out more exclusive Flo on the BFlo360 Podcast.

2016 Open Championship Predictions

This weekend will mark the 145th edition of the Open Championship across the pond and it will be the ninth edition, and the first since 2004, to be hosted at Royal Troon Golf Club up in South Ayrshire. The Open is always a fun tournament and certainly a challenge different that the one presented by the previous major, the US.

The Claret Jug is one of the most coveted trophies in all of golf but there can only be one recipient of it this year. Who will be champion of the 145th Open Championship? Here are my predictions.

Why are so many golfers pulling out of the Rio games?

We are closing in on the 2016 Rio Games and you would think that with golf making its return to the Olympics after 112 years, you would think that that would be the prevailing storyline. Instead, the talk is focused on all the top players that have pulled out of the Games with Jordan Spieth being the latest. So why is this happening?
