"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 »

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 »

Tattoo Golf: Accessories with attitude

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 »

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