Wie Warriors show little grasp of reality with bet

60 feedbacks »
No one ever accused the Michelle Wie-Can-Walk-On-Water (but not win a golf tournament) Nincompoops of holding a firm grip on reality, but message board poster Jim Nugent is delivering us to a new level of lunacy. Where's that 15-year-old high school kid… more »

Reflection Bay primed to bounce back to the upper elite after great overseed

1 feedback »
Reflection Bay, the previously untouchable Jack Nicklaus signature design at Lake Las Vegas, took a few lumps last year. Golfers still left satisfied this summer, but not quite as wowed as the reputation would suggest. One bold golf writer even dared to… more »

Boulders Resort continues to create buzz in Phoenix area golf

2 feedbacks »
It's been 20 years since Jay Morrish completed his vision at Boulders Resort and still the two Boulder courses are drawing some of the hottest word of mouth in the Phoenix-Scottsdale resort corridor. In an area where courses come and go out of fashion as… more »

Michelle Wie mere days from turning pro, the excuses stop now

50 feedbacks »
The worst kept secret in golf - that Michelle Wie's first tournament as a pro will be the Samsung World Championship starting Oct 13 - is long past rumor stage. Golf World is reporting that Wie could officially announce her new pro status as early as nex… more »

Jason Gore is no John Daly, win at 84 Lumber Classic regardless

9 feedbacks »
People love to compare Jason Gore to John Daly because they're both fat, eccentric guys who know how to tell a good everyman story. The Gore as the new John Daly campaign is likely to only pick up steam now that Gore's won a PGA Tour event (the 84 Lumber… more »

Local officials, not Bush, deserve the blame for New Orleans breakdown: A response to our new liberal blogger

9 feedbacks »
The Democrats have William J. Clinton. readers have William K. Wolfrum. Wolfrum, if you haven't noticed, is our new blogger with the picture that looks much more fake than Rebel Blogger's. Like anyone has that much hair in real life!… more »

I know Beth Daniel and this Beth Daniel had little to do with Solheim Cup victory

16 feedbacks »
Back when Beth Daniel was the most dominant player on the LPGA Tour, when Annika Sorenstam was still young and throwing parking lot tantrums, I covered a tour stop in the Lansing, Michigan area for a few years. The LPGA events were actually a huge deal i… more »

Paula Creamer once again delivers on the big stage, Michelle Wie who? Solheim Cup begs the question

28 feedbacks »
Paula Creamer pushed the U.S. to Solheim Cup victory, beating European "star" Laura Davies so soundly in Sundays singles that Davies must have been contemplating retirement on the spot. It all showed why it's no stretch to declare that Paula Creamer is b… more »

Solheim interest nothing to do with the men, it's all about dramatic women like Paula Creamer and, yes, even the not-playing Michelle Wie

I love it when National Golf Editor Tim McDonald emerges from his Florida swamp (where he's probably watching NASCAR and the clocks are apparently permanently set in 1945 time) to comment on a newfangled modern issue. Like women's sports. Giving the m… more »

Taking the redneck challenge: NASCAR driving vs. golf test

7 feedbacks »
Apparently, some of you redneck NASCAR fans took offense at being called rednecks. (Might want to tell Jeff Foxworthy, he's made a fortune off getting you folks to buy tapes of his lame redneck humor.) Yet curiously enough none of you NASCAR devotees had… more »

Vijay Singh's ping pong injury dampens golfers-as-athletes argument

4 feedbacks »
I have no doubt golfers are athletes. This is confirmed for me every time my complete lack of athletic ability comes out in my swing. But there are plenty of others who disagree, who look at golfers as barely above race car drivers on the athletic sca… more »

Wake up Michelle Wie nincompoops! McDonald insulted Jennifer Mario's hair

4 feedbacks »
The all too predictable outcry of the Michelle Wie delusional to Old Man McDonald's blog on her Solheim Cup status seems to have missed one important point. You Wie Warriors are really slipping. You're letting your leader down. Don't you realize what… more »
