Bohls: Lil’Jordan Humphrey, Collin Johnson reveal themselves as big-time Texas threats
 Lil’ Jordan Humphrey was everywhere Saturday night. The junior-to-be wide receiver was outside catching passes. He was inside catching passes. He was catching balls over the
            middle and in the seams. And when he wasn’t doing that, he was running the ball out of the Texas backfield like the two-time
            all-state...

Bohls: Are we seeing the end of Pop’s run with the San Antonio Spurs?
 This wasn’t your run-of-the-mill first-round NBA playoff game Thursday night. More a run-’em-off-the-court exhibition by the best team in the league, with all due respect to James Harden’s still-have-to-prove-it crew in Houston. Yes, Golden State mopped the floor with the San Antonio Spurs in workmanlike fashion once again...

Bohls: A week from the NFL draft, are Longhorns prospects sliding?
 While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction: 1. With the NFL draft coming next week, analyst Lance Zierlein tells me: “I think Connor Williams slides into the back half of the first round as either a tackle or a guard. If not, he’ll go early in the second. (Linebacker) Malik Jefferson tested great, which everyone...

Our Take: Bohls, Golden weigh in on the 2018 NBA playoffs
 The NBA playoffs tip off Saturday. American-Statesman columnists Kirk Bohls and Cedric Golden address key questions for the postseason: 1. Who’ll win it all? Bohls: Please stop shoveling dirt on Golden State. Yes, we all have Warriors fatigue and wonder why Kevin Durant isn’t an alpha dog. But the Warriors remain the most complete...

Bohls: Texas baseball’s sitting pretty, but decisive road trips await
 While I got ya, here are nine things and one crazy prediction: 1. Texas baseball is in a good place. In third place in the Big 12 with a 9-3 league record, the Longhorns now enter the meat of their conference schedule, starting with a series at conference-leading Oklahoma this week. Texas took care of business with four series wins, but three...

Bohls: ‘The torch has been passed’ to this new generation of golfers
 OK, Rickie Fowler, you’ve got next. Jon Rahm, you’re way ahead of schedule, but no one can see your ceiling. Doug Ghim, anyone? Beau Hossler? They’re all lining up and no one had better get in their way. They found that out the hard way when hard-charging, hard-to-like Patrick Reed bolted to his first major golf championship...

Bohls: Jordan Spieth flirts with second green jacket and history
 History will have to wait. So will Jordan Spieth. The 2015 Masters champion flirted with the best round in tournament history and a second green jacket but didn’t win. But his day might well be remembered more than the one of the man who did. Playing dazzling golf until an errant drive clipped a branch of the towering pines on the final...

Ghim riding momentum into promising future

Posted: 14 days ago

Doug Ghim has unfinished business. Not just in the Big 12 Tournament and the NCAA Championship, but here as well. The Texas Longhorns senior golfer won low amateur, scored a field-best three eagles in the first two rounds and on Sunday found magic on the 18th hole when he holed out from the bunker for...
Postcards from Augusta: Yes, sir, Verne’s still going strong
 The CBS party was a big hit Saturday night. For several reasons. First, they served fried green tomatoes, a real Southern delicacy. Then, strawberry shortcake parfaits. Finally, got to visit with my favorite guy, the legendary Verne Lundquist, whom I razzed for not wearing his Austin Maroons leather jacket. He said in his defense he plans...

Bohls: Reed trying to run into Masters history
 Running is distinctly prohibited on this golf course, but apparently running away from the field is not. No one’s come close to slowing down the cocksure Patrick Reed, a 27-year-old Texan who is threatening to wreak havoc on this vaunted piece of property with what will probably be a historic Sunday, perhaps no matter who wins. How...

Postcard from Augusta: Ghim’s trophy case getting crowded
 Doug Ghim won’t win the Masters in his first appearance here, but he sure has made his mark. By the time he leaves the grounds at the Augusta National Golf Club, the Texas Longhorns senior will take with him parting gifts of the Silver Cup as the low amateur and the only one of the six amateurs to make the cut, at least six crystal...

Ghim continues to amaze with third eagle, Silver Cup as low amateur

Posted: 15 days ago

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Doug Ghim’s  dream weekend continues. Sure, he didn’t score as well as he’d like, but he posted yet another eagle — his third of the Masters — and continues to pile up the trophies in his first Masters appearance. “I’m glad to bring some hardware home,”...
Bohls: Reed, Leishman get separation, but greats are lurking
 Patrick Reed and Marc Leishman scorched Augusta National on Friday, but they might want to look to a wise soul for some fitting advice entering the final two rounds of play at the Masters. Leroy Robert Paige, perhaps the sagest counselor this side of Yogi Berra, oft suggested not to look backward. Something — or someones — could...

Horns at the Masters: Final closing hole keeps Texas’ Ghim, Vegas open for weekend
 AUGUSTA, Ga. — The closing hole has been Longhorn-friendly this week at Augusta National. On the same hole that fellow Longhorn Doug Ghim eagled with his approach shot from 185 feet on Thursday, Jhonattan Vegas chipped
            in for a birdie on the 18th hole to finish with a 3-under 69 for his first round in the 60s in his Masters...

Postcard from Augusta: Rubbing famous elbows

Posted: 16 days ago

A word or two about the nightlife here in Augusta. There’s plenty of it. One thing about the folks at the Masters. They know how to party. Went to my third party in three nights, joining the Irish at a lavish house in their annual bash about two miles from the house where I’m staying with four writers from PGATour.com, including...
Horns at the Masters: Jordan Spieth wows, but a mixed bag for Longhorns in opening round
 AUGUSTA, Ga. — Not the best of days for half of the Texas contingent at the Masters, but former champion Jordan Spieth and
            first-timer Doug Ghim certainly made their presence felt in the late afternoon. And there’s always tomorrow for Jhonattan Vegas and Masters rookie Dylan Frittelli. While Spieth, the 2015 champion...

Bohls: Texas’ Doug Ghim nets eagles and prizes while impressing on first day of Masters
 AUGUSTA, Ga. — Doug Ghim was putting the finishing touches on his preparation when another somewhat better-known Texas Longhorn
            approached him on the putting green. Jordan Spieth, who knows a thing or two about success at Augusta National, gave Texas’ senior golfer a bit of a pep talk to
            ease his mind when...

Postcard from Augusta: Sergio’s unusual strategy on 15th — rinse, repeat
 Leave it to Bubba Watson to provide some much-needed comic relief in light of Sergio Garcia’s record 13 score on the par-5 15th hole, where he dunked five balls in the water. While some of us mused that Garcia might have come close to running out of balls, Watson was asked how many golf balls he normally keeps in his bag in case of...
