The heat and humidity this summer have been brutal. Even playing late in the evenings, by the time I walk out to find my drive on the first hole (only about 60% of the time in the fairway), I'm sweating so much it looks like I've run through a sprinkler.… more »

6 feedbacks »
I've been asked dozens of times over the past several months about Tiger Woods, and for the most part, I've kept as tight-lipped as el Tigre himself. But now that he's getting pressed by the British media, and looking more unappealingly petulant than eve… more »

Bobby Jones provides a NEW Masters memory in 2010

The 2010 Masters was memorable for many reasons--Phil Mickelson's emotional win, Tiger's return to the public eye, a return to the echoing cheers and Sunday drama. But for Bobby Jones, the 2010 Masters will be downright unforgettable. No, not TH… more »

Nick Faldo blames "the moon" for Tiger's missed cut at Quail Hollow

<p>I'm normally pretty forgiving of broadcast golf announcers. They have to fill a lot of dead air, and then all of the sudden, something spectacular (or spectacularly bad) happens, and they have to think--and speak--really fast. </p> <p… more »

This is why some people don't think golf is a sport

8 feedbacks »
At least once a week during the golf season, I walk 6 miles carrying a 40-pound bag on my shoulders. Sometimes the temperature is close to 100F, and the humidity is over 90%. When I'm playing well, I can drive the ball over 300 yards, and, if necessary,… more »
