PGA Tour needs more play-it-love-it courses like PGA National's Champion to draw non-Tiger interest

Send feedback »
I'll be tuning to catch some Honda Classic coverage over the next four days. Even with no Tiger Woods, no Phil Mickelson and nothing news worthy likely to take place. My viewership has nothing to do with a sudden love for all the Golf Channel's fancy… more »

Martin Scorsese's Oscar for Departed as much a sham as Mickelson being credited for Tigers' majors

6 feedbacks »
One more thing before this year's Oscars fade away, only to be recalled by insomniacs who need something more boring than sheep to conjure up. The only thing more egregious than Peter O'Toole being denied Oscar for the eighth time is Martin Scorsese fina… more »

Oscar farce: A world where Peter O'Toole can't win a big one any easier than Michelle Wie is out of whack

7 feedbacks »
In their infinite wisdom, the folks at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences elected to deny Peter O'Toole an Oscar for the eighth time. Which makes about as much sense as most of the lame acceptance speeches. Robbing one of the greatest act… more »

Thank heavens Tiger Woods' fraud of a streak is finally, mercifully "officially" over

19 feedbacks »
Tiger Woods is clearly the greatest golfer of all time. His supposed winning streak is also clearly the most egregious fraud in the history of sports streaks. Nick O'Hern did everyone in a golf a favor - including Woods and especially PGA Tour Commiss… more »

Seasons 52 brings inventive taste to high end chain restaurants in Florida golf markets

Send feedback »
High-end chain restaurants have long been a culinary phenomenon with few rational benefits for the diner. Ruth's Chris makes good steaks, but the setting's basically no different in Cabo than it is in Charlotte. And the fact Cheesecake Factories are alwa… more »

Siena Golf Club continues its sandy intimidation in Las Vegas

Send feedback »
Siena Golf Club isn't one of the first courses you think about in Las Vegas golf. It's not one of the no-doubt showstoppers like Paiute Wolf, The Falls or TPC Canyons. But Siena just might intimidate you like no other. That's because it does bunker… more »

Paula Creamer now 5 times better than Michelle Wie, plus she doesn't cheat like NASCAR snakes

119 feedbacks »
In a weekend when NASCAR's Skoal-smacking band of cheaters held their version of the Super Bowl - only shirts and showers are optional - it's only fitting that Paula Creamer won for the fifth time in her young professional career. After all, Creamer is t… more »

County Line Pizza gives ritzy rich Palm Beach an affordable, tasty restaurant option

3 feedbacks »
Strolling the restaurants along the Worth Avenue section of Palm Beach can bring sticker shock - not to mention suit shock - for even a former New Yorker. Forget the $30 entree. Try the $45 entree and the $20 appetizer. And everyone seems to be wea… more »

Michelle Wie author Jennifer Mario a Dukie dominating dominatrix: Oh my on Valentines

34 feedbacks »
You can work with someone for years and not know anything about them. That's just a fact of life in our alienated computer, home entertainment system society of today. Then one day, you find out the lovely prim & proper redhead whose writing often ap… more »

Is it possible Michelle Wie broke her wrist on purpose to avoid competing?

40 feedbacks »
Usually, I shun conspiracy theories. Unless they involve NBA referring or Patrick Ewing's draft status. I let's own Willie K. Wolfy hang out with the crowd that lives in secret basement bunkers and favors hand-cranked radios. But Michell… more »

Florida's PGA Learning Center a young man's paradise: Swedish babes & iPod golf

1 feedback »
Port St. Lucie, Florida will never be confused with South Beach. Even if a number of dancers - who are no doubt working their way through college - will likely show up when the New York Mets do for spring training. Still, it turns out this largely sle… more »

Fairway-clogging, fair-weather Chicago Bears fans get Super Bowl they deserve

3 feedbacks »
Anyone who's been anywhere near South Florida in the last week has run into hordes of one of the most annoying species on earth: fair-weather Chicago Bears fans. They've clogged the fairways of golf courses as far north as Palm Beach. No matter what c… more »

Palm Beach golf ultra rich in more ways than one

If you get away from the swamps and The Mouse, Florida holds plenty of often surprisingly inventive golf. Take Palm Beach County. There are 170 golf courses in this region where the rich range free and they run the gamut from ultra private high end tr… more »

Name change will not change so-so Camelback Golf Club's Phoenix problem

Send feedback »
Scottsdale's Camelback Golf Club is changing its course names and adding a newfangled GPS system in its carts. The club announced it in one of those proud press releases that golf courses love. Which is all fine and dandy. But it will not help Came… more »
