I have a rather uncomfortable admission to make: I'm not terribly enamored of new technology. At least, I'm not as much as I feel I should be, especially given that I am equipment editor for GolfInstruction.com. Let me explain. For every technolog… more »

The agony of defeat

The acrid stench of defeat hangs heavy over the campus of the University of Illinois today, as does the stink of fresh liquid fertilizer spread on the corn fields surrounding the Urbana-Champaign campus. What can we do but tip our hats to UNC? They pl… more »

Final FORE!

Chris Baldwin's comments on my stance against paying college athletes was pretty typical of "journalism" these days: ad hominem attacks, inflammatory rhetoric, and a distinct lack of analysis or detail. These are the things that excite readers and sell a… more »

Losing your balls

So, what do you do if you lose your balls before the round is over? Borrow some? But come on. Playing with someone else's balls? Maybe you just keep walking along as if you were still playing. I mean, you can still swing, just not shoot, right? The sh… more »

Phil's Equipment Saga

2 feedbacks »
When Phil Mickelson switched from Titleist to Callaway sticks just prior to the Ryder Cup, he was pilloried for making such a drastic change before such a big event. He hit the range, and the media hit him. He hit a wayward drive, and the media hit him.… more »

Fantasy Golf, Pt. 2

4 feedbacks »
So for all my obsessive-compulsive dithering over my fanatsy golf team last week, circumstances forced me to just pick my players and forget about it. I was out of town and never had a chance to even look to see who made the cut. Lucky for me, I had Phil… more »

Fantasy Golf: Heroin for the Golfer's Mind

1 feedback »
I swore I wouldn't do it again. Told myself that, by God, I can stop any time. Promised myself last year, when I looked at myself in the mirror at 3 a.m., shivering, unshaven, panic-stricken, that no way in hell would I succumb again to the heroin that i… more »

The Big Bust, er, Big Break

5 feedbacks »
Maybe I'm just bitter, but The Big Break (I or II) is a Big Bust in my opinion. As I say, I may be bitter: Three years ago, I approached a television production studio with an idea for a golf reality show in which average Joe Golfers would compete in o… more »

Winter blues

When winter rolls around in the north, where I live, I begin missing golf desperately. Or should I say, I used to. I'm not sure what has happened this year, but I just realized that I am not longing for greener fairways as I usually do this time of year… more »

Not missing the NHL

2 feedbacks »
So the National Hockey League players went on strike this season. Or maybe the owners locked them out. Frankly, I don't know which. My question is: Does anyone care? How many people outside of Canada really miss the NHL? In all honsty, I'm grateful… more »
