Golf fans storm Royal Portrush to see Rory McIlroy and friends at the 2012 Irish Open in Northern Ireland

3 feedbacks »
If the outpouring of love and support of the Irish for the 2012 Irish Open hasn't won over the R&A by now, a British Open probably won't ever come to Royal Portrush. I've spent the last two days at Portrush - one of the world's top links - and th… more »

COUNTY DONEGAL, Ireland - COUNTY DONEGAL, Ireland – It’s a shame most American golfers never see the Northwest coast of Ireland. Driving through “Yeat’s Country” is so beautifully rural and so distinctly Irish. The roads are narrow and winding. The… more »

A perfect Caribbean day on Providenciales in Turks & Caicos

Sometimes, the most magical places are the most simple ones. All it took were a few picnic tables set in the sand overlooking the ocean - OK, I'll admit a little rum punch, too - to transform today into the most perfect day on Providenciales, the mo… more »

Give dad a great golf gift on Father's Day with TaylorMade, Adams, Ecco, Arnie and more

I don't test a ton of golf equipment on a regular basis. But this year I've made a conscious effort to try a few new toys, especially in areas where I had holes in my game (insert joke here). And I can say I feel like I'm on the verge of a breakthro… more »

If the Callaway Hex Black Tour Ball can help me (and Phil Mickelson), it can help you, too

Send feedback »
I put the new Callaway Hex Black Tour Ball through a serious 24-hour test, one that spanned two world-class courses thousands of miles apart. As luck would have it, I teed up the Hex Tour ball on Sunday at the Ocean course at Cabo del Sol - a course… more »

Despite controversial greens, the Golf Club at Harbor Shores in southwest Michigan looks great during the telecast of the 2012 Senior PGA Championship

BENTON HARBOR, Mich. - It seems the worst thing you can do for your golf course is host the best players in the world. Just ask Cog Hill in Chicago or the Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain Golf Club in Arizona or Wentworth in England. Golf's greatest men c… more »

AriZona launches "Golden Bear" lemonade drinks with Jack Nicklaus

It will never replace the Arnold Palmer. That much is certain. The iconic drink that Palmer made famous sells so fast, it’s akin to teenagers gobbling up energy drinks. But Arnie and Jack Nicklaus have always been competitive – on the course playin… more »

It's a rare treat to play an Alister Mackenzie course. It's the rarest of treats to be able to play one in tournament condition. No, I didn't play Augusta National earlier this week. But I did have a magical Mackenzie experience on the Universit… more »

The new DVDs "Butch Harmon on Golf" will help your game improve

When I met Butch Harmon two years ago, I was blown away by how friendly he was. He seemed more content to hang out and tell golf stories than worrying about swing planes and follow-throughs. Harmon was thoroughly entertaining hosting the opening of his… more »
