Edinburgh, Scotland: Great for the guys, less so for the family

1 feedback »
Certain Scots will tell you that St. Andrews may be the birthplace of golf, but the oldest extant links are in Edinburgh, at Musselburgh Old Links. Still, with the immense historical import of Scotland's second-largest city, including the castle, the… more »

Indianapolis 500: Way, way more boring than watching golf

8 feedbacks »
Once again, I'm in Indianapolis for the Indianapolis 500 weekend. And thank God, it was years ago that I decided to stop attending the race itself. The following observation and/or opinion is bound to incite vehement protests from race fans, but I fin… more »

Golf makes the mainstream news: Tiger & Bush

It's a rare couple of weeks that sees golf-related stories getting attention in the non-sporting news world. First, Tiger Woods was named by MEN'S FITNESS magazine as America's Fittest Guy. Then, President Bush stated (in an extremely awkward inte… more »

Dearest Friends in Golf,We are gathered here today to remember Old Tom Morris, who on this day in 1908, passed from this world through a darkened doorway he thought was the door to the loo. He was 86 at the time, and had outlived his wife, and his so… more »

It's nice when a small equipment company makes good. We were one of the first publications to review the Tour Edge Exotics fairway woods, and this year, the newest incarnation of the Exotics line has rated at the top of the lists of some major traditi… more »

Paul Goydos almost wins one for the rest of us

12 feedbacks »
Paul Goydos is 42 years old, and a portly 5"9", 190 lbs. He hits sort of a cut shot (i.e, a controlled slice), not terribly far, but extremely reliable. He putts with one of those huge, ugly mallet putters – a TaylorMade Rossa Monza -- that looks l… more »

Callaway golf shirts exemplify smart fabrics, and befuddle dumb golfers (like me)

6 feedbacks »
We here in the Midwest apparently don't deserve more than two warm, dry days in a row. Farmers cannot get their crops in the soil, and golfers cannot get their tees in the turf. It's a toss-up, at this point, as to who is more frustrated. So two days… more »

"Birdies for the Children" and 11-year-old founder Yuvish Singh give golfers of all ages reason for optimism

14 feedbacks »
If I had a nickel for every time I heard old people grumbling about "Kids these days," I'd have almost as many nickels as I would if I got one every time I heard some old fart prattle on about how much a nickel used to buy. Seriously, if you listen to… more »

Q: Who won The Masters? A: Nike!

It was somewhere early in the afternoon of what felt like the longest Masters Sunday in history when I noticed and blogged about the dominance of Nike staff players on the leaderboard. Now, during the Masters post-mortem (which doesn't actually seem a… more »

Masters Real-time blogging -- epilogue ("Tiger takes a turn on the table")

Send feedback »
So Tiger had knee surgery scheduled even before the Masters, eh? This news makes me think of Part 20 in my real-time blogging on the final roun, where I observed that "something's not right" with the Chosen One. His body language was just all wrong du… more »

Masters Final Round real-time blogging -- Pt. 26

1 feedback »
That's quite the divot that Immelman found on the 72nd hole! Once again, something happened that almost made this Masters Sunday exciting. Not really, though. Oh, good. There'll be another baby to kiss on the green again this year. Immelman is th… more »

This is the shot--the approach on 17--that will decide how difficult 18 will be for Immelman... And another "Oops." Bogey here, or worse, and Tiger is right back in it....but unless he completely chokes a short putt, he'll save par. Immelman is +3… more »

Ooops...Immelman is wet on 16. Could we be witnessing the start of the biggest meltdown since Jean Van de Velde at Carnoustie? Maybe I won't doze off quite yet after all. more »

Masters Final Round real-time blogging -- Pt. 23

Is Treveor Immelman bad for golf? His complete domination from start to finish of the 2008 Masters has proven to be one of the most forgetable, utterly dull Masters in recent memory (unless, of course, you are Immelman or one of his family or friends)… more »

Too little, too late for Tiger. That tee shot on 16 was typical Tiger; now if he has a typical Tiger 2008 Masters putt, he'll leave it 2 inches outside to the right. ... Yep! That's exactly what he did.Immeltimidation, I tell you!Sorry, I guess I… more »
