U.S. Olympic hero T.J. Oshie’s swing featured on ‘The Golf Fix’

Aside from being an outstanding centerman for the St. Louis Blues in the NHL, the 27-year-old Oshie is also a fan of golf — and quite the player. So much so, that on February 3, Oshie — a 2-handicap — sent the following tweet to 2012 PGA National Teacher of the Year, Michael Breed, host of Golf Channel’s “The Golf Fix”:

@MichaelBreed you can come over and work on my golf swing? It’s already shaped by past @TheGolfFix episodes. #SB48 #12s” — TJ Oshie (@OSH74) February 3, 2014

Well, on last night’s episode of “The Golf Fix,” Breed showed viewers what Oshie does on the ice that translates to the golf course and also broke down Oshie’s golf swing.

Graeme McDowell escapes again into third round of Accenture Match Play

MARANA, Ariz. – Getting to the round of 16 in the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship was all that mattered Thursday.

 Jordan Spieth made it look like child’s play. Graeme McDowell aged another 10 years with another stunning escape. And it proved too difficult for Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Rory McIlroy, who lost in extra holes on another wild day at Dove Mountain.”I thought I was dead and buried both days,” McDowell said.One day after he rallied from 3 down with three holes to play to win in overtime, McDowell was two holes behind on the 15th tee when he made an 8-foot birdie, halved the next hole with a 10-foot par, won the 17th with a birdie and then holed a 6-foot par putt on the 18th for a 1-up win over Hideki Matsuyama of Japan.

In two matches, McDowell has stood on the tee with his match all square only four times – and two of those were at the start of the match.

Anna Nordqvist leads Honda LPGA Thailand by one over Michelle Wie

PATTAYA, Thailand – Anna Nordqvist holed out from 60 yards for eagle on the par-4 15th hole Thursday and made a short birdie putt on No. 17 to take a one-stroke lead over Michelle Wie after the first round of the Honda LPGA Thailand.

Nordqvist, the 26-year-old Swede who won both of her LPGA Tour titles in 2009, shot a 6-under 66 on Siam Country Club’s Pattaya Old Course. She eagled No. 15 after making two straight bogeys.

“Had pretty good yardage and it was on the top tier, so I just pitched it five or six paces behind the pin and spun back,” Nordqvist said. “So, obviously, gave me some momentum to finish off. … I just tried to stay in there after the two bogeys, because I didn’t feel like I hit bad shots. I just got flyers out of the rough.”

Wie had six birdies and a bogey in her 67.
