"Dad" and "duffer" both begin with D -- Father's Day gift ideas

Send feedback »
My father has never set foot on a golf course. He doesn’t wear ties, either. As a result, I have no idea what to get him for Father's Day. Fortunately for me, he tells me every year that he doesn't want anything. If your own dear old Dad isn't as lo… more »

Golfing moms deserve something special this Mother's Day

Send feedback »
As I was putting together this list of golf-related Mother's Day baubles, doo-dads, and gizmos, my wife said to me, "Why are you doing this so late? Any decent child or husband would be done shopping by now." All I could say was, "Of course, Dear, y… more »

Lamkin REL 3GEN golf grips: tacky chic

2 feedbacks »
I generally try to take pretty good care of my golf clubs, but there is one thing I do that is generally bad for clubs: I keep them in the trunk of my car most of the year. And this past year, it really was all year round, because that the weird, warm w… more »

Surino Golf Socks: Like walking on air

2 feedbacks »
This past Christmas at the big family get-together, I opened a pair of socks and heard myself say, "A new pair of socks just makes my day. One of life's great small pleasures!" Immediately upon uttering this, I suddenly felt very old, but that feelin… more »

Whet your appetite for a new season with Saucy Mama

Send feedback »
Well, here it is mid-February, and the tulips and daffodils in my garden are already poking up through the mulch. This cannot end well for the poor, misguided flora, as we're sure to get at least one more prolonged hard freeze, and those tender shoots w… more »

Tattoo Golf: Accessories with attitude

1 feedback »
The only thing that irritates me more than a three-putt is when non-golfers, upon hearing that you play, say something like, "My grandpa used to play golf" or "You don't look old enough to play golf" or "Golf is so boring!" Clearly, these sheltered,… more »

"Two Good Rounds" dishes on Tour pros' favorite drinks

1 feedback »
There have been almost as many memorable stories told about the 19th Hole as there have about the other 18 combined. In case you aren't familiar with the term, the 19th Hole refers to the clubhouse bar, where wins are celebrated, losses are consoled, an… more »

What happened when U-grooves were banned? Scores went down, actually

Send feedback »
Remember the ruckus when the USGA and R and A banned U-grooves? Remember why they dd it? I seem to recall that the reason was that the grooves produced too much spin, so they made the game too easy -- players were just having too easy a time of things,… more »

New golf shirts: Best Christmas present ever?

Send feedback »
Well, here we go again. Less than one week until Christmas, and I've only just now sold enough plasma to afford to buy gifts. Needless to say, I'm way behind in my shopping (and pretty darn light-headed, too.) For those of you looking for the perfect… more »

Kikkor Golf shoes: All the other golfers with their old-school kicks

Send feedback »
Over the years, I've lost count of the number of people that have told me they wouldn't golf simply because the shoes were so homely. Or uncomfortable. Or both. There are now several options for golf shoes that are both comfy and stylish, but a new c… more »

Swing Trust Oil: Aromatherapy for your golf swing

Over the past decade of writing about golf equipment for WorldGolf.com, some pretty bizarre stuff has come across my desk. There was that putter crafted from a shellacked bull phallus. And that wedge in the shape of a foot. Recently another head-scra… more »

Toast the holidays with Hangar One Vodka and Kraken Black Spiced Rum

The holiday season can be hard on a person. At least they're hard on me. Specifically, the holidays are hard on my bank account, hard on my waistline, and hard on my liver. But sacrifices must be made for both my family and my work. Someone around… more »

The name "Sunice" embodies the challenges of shoulder season

Send feedback »
Yesterday in my neck of the woods, the temperature was in the low- to mid-forties, and the wind was a brisk 15-20 mph. On my way to my home course, charcoal-gray, irascible clouds began to spit at my windshield. But a 9am tee time awaited, and I had… more »
