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

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 »

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 »

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?

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 »

What do you do with clubs named after you? Ask Fuzzy Zoeller.

Send feedback »
When you help design a set of clubs, and put your initials on them, you'd better play them. And more importantly, you'd better win. Just ask Fuzzy Zoeller. On February 24, Fuzzy used his brand spankin' new PowerBilt FZ1 driver and irons to over… more »
