Montreux Golf and Country Club will eat Michelle Wie alive: So long, confidence

30 feedbacks »
I long ago dubbed myself the worst golf-playing golf writer in the world, yet I love monster golf courses. There's nothing quite like a track that's geared toward leaving bruises. I've played some of the toughest courses in the world and left feeling bet… more »

By skipping the PGA Championship, Greg Norman shows he's no hypocrite

1 feedback »
Greg Norman could have easily jumped at the paycheck that his sudden, post-British Open-run PGA Championship invite would have all but guaranteed. Another golfer his age, without his off-the-course tycoon status, would have had to jump at it. With th… more »

Golf lawsuit from Rudy Giuliani's son shows how wacky and screwed up Duke is: Apparently nearly all coach Dukies are self-righteous blowhards

8 feedbacks »
Rudy Giuliani's son is suing Duke because he was cut from the golf team. At first glance, this would seem cause to rip on 22-year-old Andrew Giuliani for being a baby who's been protected by his father all his life (even if reality and Andrew's shaky rel… more »

Charles Barkley not gambling in Lake Tahoe the biggest upset of golf's no Tiger Woods run

Send feedback »
Forget Greg Norman holding the 54-hole lead at the British Open at age 53 having practiced almost as little as John Daly. The biggest upset of this golf season without Tiger Woods is Charles Barkley spending a week in Lake Tahoe for the American Century… more »

Team Wie reverts to old desperate ways with Reno-Tahoe Open PGA Tour grab

24 feedbacks »
A lot's already been written about Michelle Wie accepting a sponsor's exemption to play in the Reno-Tahoe Open, yet the larger truth's gone unnoticed. This move reeks of sudden desperation from Team Wie, desperation they'd smartly largely avoided for the… more »

No matter what happens in British Open's final round, Greg Norman didn't choke: There's no choking at age 53

16 feedbacks »
Greg Norman could shoot an 85 today in the final round of the British Open and he wouldn't have choked. Norman could pull off two Phil Mickelson's at Winged Foot, fall face first into three different bunkers, hit a shot backwards and he still wouldn't ha… more »

Michelle Wie earns her State Farm DQ with dumb mistake, but LPGA shows inept heartless bureaucracy too

35 feedbacks »
Michelle Wie made one of those dumb mistakes that a golfer in contention just cannot make. One of those blunders that fits right in with the illegal drops and dubious withdrawals that have marked her winless career. Wie forgot to sign her scorecard be… more »

Playing even worse with no Tiger in the British Open just typical Phil Mickelson

10 feedbacks »
My son jolted me awake early this morning because he'd had a nightmare. While walking him around, I turned on the first hour of TNT's coverage (which would start even earlier if anyone in TV cared about the West Coast, but more on that in a later blog).… more »

Greg Norman's ex gets $103 million, Christie Brinkley's ex gets $2.1 million: More proof it's better to be a woman than a man in divorce?

9 feedbacks »
Greg Norman is a former top athlete turned mega tycoon who is worth the kind of money only Tiger Woods can imagine. Christie Brinkley is a former SI swimsuit model turned budding real estate player who has the type of money only the Olsen twins can relat… more »

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers shows more class than Brett Favre by sticking to his Lake Tahoe celebrity golf commitment

14 feedbacks »
It's ludicrous and borderline insane to suggest that Aaron Rodgers will be a better quarterback for the Green Bay Packers this season than Brett Favre would have been. Packers management's stubborn decision to not go back to Favre out of spite proves jus… more »

Dallas Morning News writes about Tony Romo blog, but homers forget to mention that Romo choked in yet another sport

67 feedbacks »
The Dallas Morning News wrote a blog about my blog on attention whore Tony Romo going Woody Austin. Which proves two things. 1). That Texas' biggest and most prominent newspaper understands who's the recognized expert on golf, especially celebrity go… more »

Attention whore Tony Romo falls into a pond at Lake Tahoe Celebrity Classic, how typical of dunce Dallas Cowboys quarterback

134 feedbacks »
Tony Romo is making a public spectacle of himself on another golf course. This time, Romo went Woody Austin. Yes, Aquaman has company. Say hello to the doofus Dallas Cowboys quarterback/attention whore Tony Romo as he falls backwards into the pond on… more »

Do pro golfers like Anthony Kim really believe these garish belt buckles make them cool?

12 feedbacks »
Golf has long suffered from an obvious deficit of cool. While Tiger Woods may have changed this for himself with his dramatics, that hasn't shifted the landscape for all the rest of pro golf. So what are golf's best doing to be hip? Breaking out bi… more »

U.S. Women's Open champ Inbee Park's Badlands connection shows how strong Las Vegas pro golf is

Send feedback »
You might recall that Inbee Park won the U.S. Women's Open less than a week ago. OK, you probably don't (if the 2008 men's U.S. Open is the tournament that's destined to be remembered forever with Tiger Woods winning on one battered knee, the 2008 Women'… more »
