Paula Creamer too nonchalant over Stanford International playoff loss to Annika Sorenstam

11 feedbacks »
Yes, Paula Cremaer is still better than Michelle Wie now, will always be better than Wie. But will Creamer ever start demanding more than that of herself? You have to wonder after Creamer lost a playoff to Annika Sorenstam and then essentially brushed… more »

LPGA deserves credit for finally going Celeb pro-am again, but needs George Clooney

1 feedback »
The LPGA of Carolyn Bivens has taken a lot of criticism - much of it well earned. But you have to give Bivens and her staff credit for being willing to try new things. More international tournaments - which are good idea no matter what Dottie Pepper s… more »

Rubio's good San Diego fish tacos, but not close to Cabo or Palm Springs great fish tacos

Send feedback »
Several trips to San Diego later, I'm still searching for a great fish taco in a region that should - the operative word being should - produce great seafood. When my Castle Baron Boss Mark Nessmith suggested Rubio's, I had high hopes. After all, the… more »

Can't help but root for Big Break Kaanapali's Susan Choi

2 feedbacks »
I've never been much of a Big Break fan. Reality shows don't do much for me and the Golf Channel's version was never in much danger of changing my mind. I once ran into David Gunas Jr. - the barefoot-golfing supposedly funny Big Break II contestant - at… more »

Knee injury lets Tiger Woods do what he loves best: Not golf & it guarantees U.S. Open win

13 feedbacks »
The news that Tiger Woods is likely out from knee surgery until the Memorial, just two weeks before the U.S. Open, is bad for the PGA Tour. But it's probably good for Tiger. No great athlete enjoys not actually competing in his sport more than Tiger W… more »

When cancer scare backstory cannot even get Trevor Immelman play, you know he's an unpopular Masters champion

3 feedbacks »
Let's face it, sports fans are suckers for a good comeback story. Give us Hoosiers over the undefeated New England Patriots in the Super Bowl every time. Lance Armstrong actually got America to care about bike racing because of his own brush back of canc… more »

Suggestions back-in Masters champ Trevor Immelman's wife is hotter than Tiger Woods' Elin are crazy

14 feedbacks »
Soon after Trevor Immelman backed into the most uninteresting green jacket ceremony ever, I received an e-mail from a sports writer colleague who wondered if I agreed that Immelman's wife Carminita is hotter than Elin Woods. Which immediately caused me t… more »

Sudden Masters poor loser Tiger Woods should be ashamed at himself for blaming media

9 feedbacks »
Tiger Woods used to be a truly graceful loser. This is one of the things he's never received nearly enough credit for - his classy sportsmanship. In the rare occasions when he did come up short in a big tournament, he'd always heap praise on the other pl… more »

Tiger Woods blowing the Masters by letting Stewart Cink match him in final round

Send feedback »
The Masters is incredibly still right there for Tiger Woods to grab it. Even after his bogey on No. 10. Tepid Trevor Immelman is going to go wobbling back to 8-under, maybe 7-under. Yet what's Tiger doing? He's letting playing partner Stewart Cink pre… more »

LPGA insults Mexico by burying Lorena Ochoa's brilliance Masters week

7 feedbacks »
Lorena Ochoa is rolling toward another comically large victory margin, leading the Corona Championship by seven shots after going 66-66-66. She's doing this in her home country of Mexico, making it an even better story. And who's paying attention?… more »

Phil Mickelson's third round Masters 75 shows why he's such an embarrassment compared to Tiger Woods

4 feedbacks »
It was amusing seeing all the golf publications that touted Phil Mickelson as the favorite going into the weekend at the Masters. Phil's right there, he's ready to pounce, this is his chance with Tiger on the outs ... yada, yada, yada. It's like 95 pe… more »

Swear police mess up Tiger Woods' Grand Slam plan at the Masters: Leave him yelling Woodward!

3 feedbacks »
I hope all the swear police are happy. And you know who you are. You're the gang of greatness bashers who went after Tiger Woods for his supposed lack of decorum on the course (mostly focusing on the fact he sometimes swore like a salesman at himself) fo… more »

Sports Illustrated's Michelle Wie story Masters week as lame as Doogie Howser's Britany Spears insults

4 feedbacks »
When the NFL Draft rolls around, are we subjected to full features on Heath Shuler and Akili Smith every year? Sure, they'll get the occasional mention in a biggest busts of all time story, but no one's hearing about their every move. So why is Sports… more »

Don't sleep on Brandt Snedeker, the Eli Manning of the Masters, after first round 69: Second to Tiger Sunday?

5 feedbacks »
Last year's PGA Tour Rookie of the Year Brandt Snedeker is only one shot back at the Masters after round one and he could be tied for the lead if he hadn't recorded his first bogey of the day on 18. While you can expect most of the first round surprises… more »

Tiger Woods' eagle on 15 in Masters first round hides his Grand Slam nerves?

Send feedback »
Tiger Woods just hit one of those shots that only Tiger hits, a chip-in eagle on No. 15 after he couldn't get anything to fall all day in Augusta. As the ball disappeared into the hole, Nick Faldo - who's thankfully being used in the ESPN broadcast that'… more »
