(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky.) – Billy Horschel, who after two rounds stands at thirteen under par and in second place atop the leaderboard, had some timely advice for Chip McDaniel prior to the start of this year’s Barbasol Championship. The former Florida Gator standout told the former Kentucky Wildcat star that one doesn’t have to be perfect to be successful in professional golf. “I think when I came out on tour I knew that,” said the 2014 FedEx Cup Champion and five-time PGA TOUR winner. “But in the back of my head, I just felt like I had to be perfect in every aspect of my game every week.” McDaniel, the hometown hero from Clay County, hasn’t been perfect this week in his professional golfing debut, but he’s already proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he has what it takes to successfully compete with the big boys on the professional circuit.

(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky.) – Competing with a major championship across the pond is no small feat.

That certainly has not been the case.

Eastern Kentucky will have their eyes on local sensation Chip McDaniel of Clay County
(NICHOLASVILLE, Ky) – Anyone who has ever tried to play the game of golf knows that it really is a good walk spoiled. Unless you’re the Golden Bear, or the Great White Shark, or the Big Easy, or the Walrus, or the King, you’ve undoubtedly been repeatedly traumatized by the ever-lurking water hazards, sand traps, and narrow fairways lining the links. Just like you, I’ve been there and done that. What I haven’t done yet is to cover a professional golf tournament—and all that’s about to change as the fourth annual Barbasol Championship rolls into Keene Trace Golf Club. It’ll be the first PGA TOUR tournament (excluding majors) to be held in Kentucky since the Kentucky Derby Open was played in Louisville from 1957-59. For those keeping score, that’s a long time ago—over a decade and a half before Tiger Woods was even born. Continue reading PGA Golf Returns to Kentucky—By John Huang

(JACKSON, Ky.) – In the annals of UK Sports history, Adolph Rupp sits indisputably at the kingdom throne of the Big Blue Nation. The Baron of the Bluegrass, with his recognizable balding pate and heralded nasal twang, was instrumental in the coronation of the Kentucky program as the greatest tradition in the history of college basketball. Life-long Wildcat fans, together with future die-hard generations to come, owe much of their current and ensuing glory to the basketball genius of the man in the brown suit.
