Fairmont Scottsdale Princess should be ashamed of its $7 glass of orange juice

4 feedbacks »
The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess is a nice high end hotel. If you're going to drop $400 a night in Scottsdale high season - and there's a good dozen resorts in town where you can do that easily (winter golf paradise isn't cheap) - it's hard to find a bet… more »

Phoenix-Scottsdale now heat bearable for golf

1 feedback »
The temperature in Scottsdale today reached 98 degrees. In other words, it was one of the cool ones. And it's getting downright frigid from here. Not a day over 97 with things dipping into the high 80s by the weekend (as much as you can believe foreca… more »

Avoid Genoa Resort course in Reno/Lake Tahoe area for now

Send feedback »
If you're going to be in the Reno/Lake Tahoe area this fall, the Genoa Resort course is one course you want to cross off your play list. It's more of a construction zone than a golf course at this point and nobody needs to be chasing birdies while dodgin… more »

Tiger Woods could still learn something from Byron Nelson

12 feedbacks »
Tiger Woods usually shows a deep appreciation for golf history. He's much closer to being the modern gentleman ambassador to the game than a lot of people give him credit for (the swearing fuss is way overblown). But this week of all weeks, when the u… more »

Properly lovely to see Paul "I hate" Casey kicking Ryder Cup butt

6 feedbacks »
One of the few good things about Europe's roll in yet another Ryder Cup is seeing Paul Casey step up and hit some incredible shots. Casey is the Englishman who rightly said he "properly hates" the conceited American pros on the U.S. Ryder Cup team and… more »

Hard not to root for Sergio Garcia in Ryder Cup or anywhere else

1 feedback »
Sure, Sergio Garcia is a mental midget in real clutch golf situations (Ryder Cups don't qualify). And sure, Sergio shows less fashion sense then the average bum on your average San Francisco street corner. (All yellow outfit in the British Open final rou… more »

Ben Roethlisberger - NFL's most overrated quarterback - worse than Carson Palmer in golf too

8 feedbacks »
Ben Roethlisberger was back stumbling around the huddle Monday night, giving another lesson in why he's the most overrated quarterback in NFL history. Big Ben completed 17 of 32 passes for a whopping 141 yards and two interceptions, led the Steelers to z… more »

Doing my patriotic part in this Ryder Cup week

2 feedbacks »
No, Tiger Woods strangely hasn't asked me yet how to focus on the big stage (even though I once did come within a game of a Madden Championship). And no, Tom Lehman didn't come to his senses and go to another international coaching source for wisdom (tho… more »

Snow in September & Indian music on Canadian radio: Did Michelle Wie win?

1 feedback »
You come over a hill in the highway and suddenly there's snow. In September. The white stuff falls against the rental car's windshield. It covers the pine trees on the side of the road. No, Michelle Wie hasn't made a cut. Hell hasn't froze over. Yo… more »

Tom Lehman turns to international coaching loser Mike Krzyzewski for advice: Forget any Ryder Cup win now

5 feedbacks »
Tom Lehman apparently yearns to somehow finish third at the Ryder Cup. The two-team Ryder Cup. Why else turn to Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski for international coaching advice. That's equivalent to going to Martha Stewart for legal advice, to Urkel fo… more »

Crazy crackpot 9-11 conspiracy theories even invade golf

I was in Lake Placid last month, playing a bunch of the area's historic golf courses and one round, I ended up getting paired with a Canadian. Now usually I love the Canadians. So much so that I consider myself an honorary citizen (though I'm still waiti… more »

End of spur-of-the-moment 3 am. Las Vegas weddings a Sin City tragedy

2 feedbacks »
Anyone who's been to both Las Vegas and New York knows that Gotham's title as the City That Never Sleeps is pure ceremonial hogwash. Sure, you can get a great burger till 4 a.m. at the Corner Bistro on 4th street in New York, but that's about it ... C… more »

What about the hot Polish blondes, BTuck?

3 feedbacks »
In U.S. destinations as far flung as Reno, Nevada and Lake Placid, New York this summer, I've run into a number of hot Polish blondes. The hospitality industry seems to bring them in by degrees of charm. Almost all these women can disarm your typical gol… more »

Hurricane John spares Cabo's glittering golf

There are some "golf destinations", you wouldn't mind seeing take a hurricane hit. As long as people and animals weren't hurt of course. But the Cabo corridor is one oasis that deserves a giant shield around it. This 19-mile stretch between the party… more »
