Nike Lunar Waverly golf shoe: Blending the best of British sports events

When Rory McIlroy wins majors, he does it in dominating fashion, doesn't he? Wire-to-wire to win my favorite British sports event – wow! Of course my second favorite is Wimbledon – the most iconic British sporting event of all. Nike Golf has intr… more »

The Open Championship: Testing golfers' nerves and spectators' livers

Send feedback »
At the first twinkling of sunlight yesterday, I rose from bed, stumbled zombie-like toward the television, and sank again into the couch, ready for a long morning of Open Championship coverage. After only an hour or two, I was jarred out of my links… more »

In this age of custom-fitted gear, things can get pretty confusing. Enter Jack Nicklaus -- The Golden Bear himself -- who has always had a bit of a gift for cutting through the hoo-hah and getting to the point. more »

Anything you can do, Wie can do better

1 feedback »
You won't have to look very hard to find stories on Michelle Wie's first major victory today that open with words like "Phew!" or "Finally!" or "Underachieving" or...well, you get the idea. I'd like to remind everyone that Michelle Wie is just 24 yea… more »

Forest Dunes Golf Club: Pure Golf in Pure Michigan

Send feedback »
I've been asked several times over the past month or so what my favorite place in the country to play golf is. Each time, I put Michigan high on the list, and am often met with quizzical looks. Why Michigan? Here are a few reasons: *More public c… more »

"Fore" golf gifts for Father's Day 2014

1 feedback »
I think if I could have one golf-related wish for all golfing fathers on Father's Day, it would be for every single one of them to get a hole-in-one. How awesome would that be? Our friends over at Omaha Steaks would probably somewhat less that thrill… more »

Every day, every time you see me, I'm working

Send feedback »
This has been a strenuous Memorial Day weekend so far. It may look like I'm just playing golf, drinking beer, and sleeping on the couch. But given my line of work, this all counts as, well, work. And continually having to remind everyone that I am cons… more »

Fila's Auckland Jacket, because I told you the weather would turn again

Send feedback »
Just a few days ago, the sun was shining, and I broke a serious sweat walking 18 holes at my home course. But I knew the weather, like John Daly in rehab, would backslide sooner or later. In fact, I warned of this very eventuality in my recent 2014 S… more »

First day of the 2014 golf season: Great Expectations

2 feedbacks »
Here I sit, 6:00am CDT. My tee time at Lake of the Woods Golf Course isn't until 9:30, but I'm too excited to sleep. The projected high today is 61 degrees, but there's frost on the ground right now here in Champaign Co., Illinois. At 9:30, it'll probab… more »

Last-minute Valentine's Day gift for a never-ending winter

1 feedback »
It's hard to tell which is piling up more quickly: the snow on my home course, or the clubs, balls, shoes, shirts, bags, and range finders I need to test and review. Both accumulations are depressing the hell out of me. After two straight years of be… more »

2013 Year in Review: A personal edition

Send feedback »
2013 was the best of golf times for me, and it was the worst of times. I started out 2013 with an epic trip to the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, where I snagged a closest-to-the-pin prize at a media outing and shot a personal 9-hole best from the… more »

Stocking stuffer for goofy duffers: Muze apparel

"He got all of that one!" "Cinderella story. Playing out of his own bag." "Billy, Billy, Billy." "Noonan!" "I don't think the heavy stuff is going to start for a couple hours." If you are a golfer who is not totally devoid of humor, you w… more »

Stocking stuffer for artsy duffers: Tin Cup

Send feedback »
"I'm playing a Titleist," says pretty much every dang golfer in any given foursome. "I've got a Titleist 2," says half your foursome. The out come the Sharpies for some random, arbitrary dots. If the golfer on your list wants to infuse a bit more per… more »

Stocking stuffer for boozy duffers: The Golfalyzer

Sometimes my golf game has gone to hell, and I need a beer to mourn. Sometimes I'm playing lights out, and I need a beer to celebrate. Sometimes the group in front is holding us up, and I need a beer to pass the time. Sometimes I'm playing aft… more »

Hole-in-one in Tennessee earns free filet mignon

3 feedbacks »
As my loyal fan will remember (yes, that's singular on purpose), in May I was fortunate enough to to card my first ace. It was a 167-yard par 3 at King's Creek Golf Club, just south of Nashville, Tennessee. I have to admit that, at the time, I was so… more »
