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

1 feedback »
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

Send feedback »
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 »

Last year, I decided to stop procrastinating when it came to holiday shopping. And then I promptly put off breaking my procrastination habit until this year. But now -- now, damn it -- I am finally prepared to get moving on last year's gifts. Or may… more »

QuickSpikes turn any shoes into golf shoes

4 feedbacks »
A lot of golf products cross my desk each year, and there are times that I ask myself, "Why?" Specifically, "Why would anyone want or need this?" And I have to admit that when I first saw QuickSpikes. What are QuickSpikes, you ask? Well, they are… more »

HIRZL Golf gloves beat the summer heat

3 feedbacks »
If you're a golfer in the U.S., chances are the last month or two have been mighty steamy -- temperatures in most places have been over 90F combined with high humidity. I don't know about you, but heat indices well over 100F don't keep me from the c… more »

The Players Towel helps keep your kit clean

Send feedback »
I have a confession to make: The least-used accessory in my bag is my golf towel. I've thought about why this is, and come up with the following excuses, er, reasons. First, on the course many of my shots are of such a quality that I'm too frustr… more »

Bionic golf glove feels great but wears down fast

1 feedback »
I first wrote about the Bionic golf glove after covering the 2004 Fall PGA Expo in Las Vegas. The glove was unique in that it was designed by an orthopedic surgeon to aid flexibility, comfort, and grip. This year, Hillerich & Bradsby, parent comp… more »

Assistant course manager at Lake of the Woods G.C. in Mahomet, Ill. saves golfer's life with defibrillator

Send feedback »
The word "hero" gets slapped around more than a cheap range ball, especially in sports. And golf is no exception. Take Tom Watson's charge at the 2009 Open Championship (aka, British Open): while it was certainly inspiring, it was not "heroic." He was a… more »
