It's been amusing to see Cheap Bastard chasing Old Man McDonald around the South. Cheap Bastard is right to be jealous. McDonald's been out cheaping him since before the Bastard's eye glasses were in style. Cheap Bastard might be wary about spending 50 c… more »

Playing the grass courts at Tennis Hall of Fame, a worthy off-course Newport, R.I. trip addition

1 feedback »
If you're in Newport, R.I. for some golf, seaside living and yacht ogling, don't count out a trip to the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The museum itself is more than a little disappointing. If the Baseball Hall of Fame had white posterboard-like cut… more »

Newport, R.I. is the land of super-sized, high tech yachts and hulking 19th-century Vanderbilt mansions. And right now, Michelle Wie mania. The country club East Coast vacation spot seems like a strange place to go gaga over a 15-year-old female golfe… more »

I love Tiger Woods too, but his apologists are amazing in their ridiculous PGA Championship bailout excuses

It's hardly surprising that Rebel Blogger is defending someone's right to be an irresponsible spoiled punk. But the reputable golf voices jumping right in line with the Rebel's blatant Tiger Woods' pandering is comical. I know Jim Nantz wants Tiger to… more »

Turn the cheek on the Cheeky Monkey in Newport, R.I. restaurant scene

The Cheeky Monkey is touted as one of the hip, happening places to get a meal in Newport, R.I. And the atmosphere is fine. All the monkey paintings on the wall are funny and the low lighting and dark wood thing works well enough. The problem is the Mo… more »

Battling the wind makes Newport, Rhode Island golf

2 feedbacks »
It's always a little more interesting when the wind plays havoc with your shots, inevitably whipping up on that monster par 5 and letting down on that dainty par 3, just when you've started to overcompensate. Sure, it makes golf even tougher, but if you… more »

Has Tiger Woods lost his mind? Sunday fly home from PGA Championship makes one wonder

Apparently, Tiger Woods believes in Phil Mickelson's nerves more than anyone else in golf. Including Mickelson himself, who joked about the agony of having to sleep on the lead for yet another additional night at the delayed PGA Championship even after h… more »

Phil Mickelson deserves all the credit for PGA Championship at Baltusrol, all you Lefty doubters stink!

The PGA Championship, already in danger of becoming the fifth major, desperately needs Phil Mickelson to hold off his cough till Sunday

7 feedbacks »
Phil Mickelson isn't winning the PGA Championship. That's like expecting Britney Spears to drop the trailer park schtick and transform into Gwyneth Paltrow. At a certain point, your character's set. No, that 2004 Masters will remain Mickelson's one sh… more »
