I haven't even set foot on a golf course in the Canadian Rockies yet and I'm already blown away by Alberta as a world-class golf destination. The views start even before you get off the plane. I flew up from on a small 80-person prop plane from Seatt… more »

2 feedbacks »
I’m too young to remember Tom Watson’s glory years … the magical U.S. Open win in 1982 and the five British Open Championships. But it’s hard to image Watson being more respected and revered than he is today. His near-miss at the 2009 British Open at… more »

Watch the nation's top club pros tackle ferocious Pete Dye course at French Lick Resort & Casino on The Golf Channel

They are some of the best players NOT on the PGA Tour or Nationwide Tour. Even so, the showstoppers at the 2010 PGA Professional National Championship aren’t defending champions like Mike Small (2009) and Scott Hebert (2008). The undisputed star of t… more »

David Feherty's latest book, The Power of Positive Idiocy, provides more wild words from golf's loudest wacko

1 feedback »
As a TV color man for CBS, David Feherty is funny and relentless in his pursuit of making golf entertaining, not the five-hour death march it has turned into on the PGA Tour. He brings the same wit and enthusiasm to his writing. His writing reminds m… more »

Meet Homer Kelley in Scott Gummer's intriguing new book

1 feedback »
It’s a familiar tale we can all relate to … Man tries golf. Golf eats man. Homer Kelley’s first round of golf was a painful day of 116 shots. Some people quit at that point, but not Kelly. He studied the swing for six months, came back and shot 7… more »
