Discovering golf in southwest Ireland never gets old

Just returned from my fourth trip to Ireland and I'm still riding the high of the experience. Those good vibes have helped me fight off the jetlag of a 14-hour travel day home. You can go 100 times to the Emerald Isle and still discover something new… more »

Packing for a golf trip to Ireland no easy task

I should know how this works by now. I'm packing today for my fourth golf trip to Ireland. Simple, yes? Packing for a golf trip is never so. Anyone who plays the game knows the challenges between packing too much and too little. A couple of bad-w… more »

Finding a higher purpose for used golf pencils

1 feedback »
As a believer in recycling, I've always hated how golf pencils are consumed. You see golfers casually discard them after the round. They end up on the cart barn floor, in the trash can, in the trunk of the car, anywhere really. Considering that g… more »

Mike Vago's "Miniature Book of Miniature Golf" a big hit

Send feedback »
When I was first offered a review copy of the Miniature Book of Miniature Golf by Mike Vago, I said no. I wasn't interested. It sounded like a gimmick. That's what crossed my mind when I saw a press release about a golf book with a "golf course" insi… more »

Ruletwentyone: A new golf towel that's not all wet

Send feedback »
I've never been one of those golfers who carries a wet towel to the green. My putting has never been that exact. If there's mud or sand on the ball, I just rub it off on the green (or my sock) and get on with my three-putting. But I've changed my… more »

Beating the heat, hurricanes for golf in Mexico's Baja Peninsula

I've been fielding calls and e-mails from friends and family all day with the same questions ... Where are you? Are you home yet? Did you hear about the hurricane? Yes, I'm back in the cool, friendly confines of Michigan. Thankfully. As much… more »

We all know about the TPC of Sawgrass, home of the island green and The Players Championship. The TPC of Scottsdaleā€™s Stadium course, host of the FBR Open, has its own signature hole, the raucous par-3 16th that is home to thousands of partying, scream… more »

What would Tiger Woods shoot in putt-putt?

4 feedbacks »
I've often wondered this age-old question: What do your putt-putt scores really mean? I'm no rock-star putter. I've got a sort of Billy Mayfair stroke that cuts across the ball. Generally, though, I'm a solid putter. I don't make a lot, but I don't m… more »

Do you remember your first birdie?

Send feedback »
This post follows up on last fall's "Do you remember your first par?" Do you remember your first birdie? I don't but I'll always remember my son's. Carter, 7, will likely remember it, too. For several years, I've been taking him to a local metropar… more »

Under par ... finally.

Funny how golf is. Just last week I admitted to the world (well, cyberspace, anyway) that I whiffed on a shot. Today, a brand new grip I've been experimenting with delivered the best round of my life. A 77 at Tyrone Hills Golf Course, a 6,404-yard… more »

Come on. Admit it. You've whiffed before. Right?

5 feedbacks »
I couldn't help but stare at the ball in disbelief. Had it jumped mid-swing? Did I close my eyes? Did my club suddenly grow a half-inch? Those are the only logical explanations I have for what happened today on the golf course. I whiff… more »
