Treating my PGA Championship hangover with small-batch Kentucky bourbon

Send feedback »
Let's be honest: The PGA Championship is nobody's favorite major. Before the FedEx Cup, it heralded the effective end of the PGA Tour season. And even now, it is just as likely to be won by a Shaun Micheel, Rich Beem, or Y.E. Yang as it is a Tiger Woods… more »

Well, the club championship at my home course has just wound up. Or, as I refer to it, the Weekend of My Worst Rounds. It never fails: I'm playing well going into the championship, and then proceed to collapse more dramatically than Argentina's economy.… 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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »
