Masters Final Round real-time blogginf -- Pt. 5

Send feedback »
I can tell Tiger is a parent -- his legendary fuse is even shorter than before. Kids'll do that to you. Oh, wow. Snedeker drilled that long putt -- he's for real. And Cink got robbed on the par-3. He's for real, too. Immelmann, I think, is going t… more »

Did I just hear that Migel Angel Jimenez, my darkhorse pick carded an eagle today. Figures. I had him on my fantasy team the first two rounds, and was rewarded with very few points. I knew he had a low round in him, but it won't help me today. Let's hope… more »

Masters Final Round real-time blogging -- Pt. 3

OK, so my great blogging scheme was just thwarted by my wife, who informed me that I have children and responsibilities. Notice that Elin isn't standing behind the 3rd green telling Tiger not to forget that he's got a daughter and needs to change the dra… more »

Phil Mickelson really screwed my fanatasy golf team over yesterday. Now, I should know not to switch away from Tiger on moving day at a major, but Phil had actually looked very strong Friday. Switchign to Phil yesterday cost me 14 points. As soon as I… more »

Several years ago, before the advent of the blogs on these pages, I had some good fun writing about Phil Mickelson's first major win. Today, I'll do my best to send along observations as close to real time as possible, typos be damned. Fist though… more »

No one who makes the cut is out of the Masters if the weather turns foul

2 feedbacks »
My fellow bloggers have picked everyone from Brandt Snedeker to K.J. Choi to Justin Rose at this year's Masters. My own darkhorse pick, Miguel Angel Jimenez, isn't looking stellar after a first round 77, but I still have one hope: crappy weather. I… more »

How the 2008 Masters will play out

Send feedback »
A local down in Augusta told me last week that they had been icing down the azaleas to keep them from blooming too soon. Ahh…the profound embarrassment of premature foliation. It's been a hot spring in the land of Coke and peaches, and a volati… more »

Goodness gracious, great balls of color!

2 feedbacks »
Is it just me, or are golfers' balls turning different colors? OK, that didn't come out quite right. Let me explain. Remember back in the 1970s, when tennis balls turned from white to yellow, and golf balls began to follow suit? (It may have been p… more »

American Society of Golf Course Architects makes design recommendations to speed play

5 feedbacks »
Slow play is often cited as one of the reasons golf has declined in popularity in recent years. Courses are getting longer and longer in reaction to more powerful club technology, but average players aren't hitting the ball that much farther. And they ce… more »

New mystery driver impresses right out of the box

3 feedbacks »
I've never done this before. I've never taken a new club straight to the course, teed up a ball, and, within two holes, decided to keep it in my bag, replacing a tried and true stick. Now, before I go any further, I will confess that I cannot yet n… more »

Stewart Cink DQed (and fantasy golfers screwed) by absurd rule Rule 13-4a

6 feedbacks »
After ascending to 490th place overall in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Golf, I've plummeted precipitously over the past few weeks. Today, however, delivered a devastating gut-shot. Stewart Cink, my last remaining semi-big-name, was DQed yesterday from the Z… more »

Golf course directories help traveling golfers locate courses

Let me share a terrifying recurring dream I have: I'm on the road, golf bag on my shoulder, but I don't know where the course is. I ask the strangers walking past, but they look at me as if I were speaking Japanese. Lots of head-scratching and should… more »

Want to caddie for Justin Leonard, Boo Weekley, or Woody Austin?

2 feedbacks »
As a golf equipment junky, my favorite part about covering professional golf events is being able to sidle up to the caddies waiting alongside rows of golf bags and chat about the sticks the pros are using. So what could be better than that? Actually… more »

Are adjustable shafts money-making gimmicks, or can they really help your game?

Send feedback »
To answer the question posed in the title, let me get my cards on the table right now. For the vast majority of golfers, it's a gimmick. Take for example, TaylorMade's Tour Van in a Box. For $999 (because companies think consumers are incapable of… more »

OGIO sues Callaway Golf over golf bag design infringement

Send feedback »
A couple weeks ago, I reported on a flap between OGIO, Sun Mountain, and Burton. It seems that OGIO had discovered that some of its most popular bag names were being used by the other companies. After a little digging it became apparent that Sun Mountain… more »
