Michelle finished her round today with a 70, one under par. That puts her ahead of more than half of the 154-player pack for the moment. Not bad for a 15-year-old girl. Not bad for a 30-year-old PGA pro, actually. Quite a bit has been said and written… more »

Chris Baldwin's on the warpath again. He's taking a break from ranting about Stallion Mountain and now he's after me instead. For whatever reason, my giant crush on Retief Goosen has really gotten his panties in a wad. Jealous, maybe? But turns out he… more »

A couple of days before the Open, a fellow TravelGolfer asked me my pick. ?Tiger Woods is the obvious answer,? I replied, ?but that Retief Goosen. He?s really something. He?s the defending champion and all. He?s got something to prove. I gues… more »
