Matt should be grateful he is living in the States. The ridiculous amount of time wasted by tv, radio and papers on what a great guy Steve Williams is makes me ill. As I point out to the fawning Williams lovers, he is just a caddy, lucky enough to carry the bag for the greatest golfer ever. It is a pity nobody in NZ seems willing to point this out to him.

It's interesting to note the smallishly equipped people who display their "Steve Williams Envy."

In response to: No more celebrity golfers

The thing that really annoys me about die hard golf fans is that they act like their love for the game is so much greater than the average hacker. They don’t like celebrity golfers? Why, because they bring a sense to the game that detracts from the overall performance of how good tour pros are, or they show a carded seven on live TV, or is it maybe, just maybe the jealousy that spews from a lonely life spent spanking their putter in search of their own single digit handicap. The Fact is that everyone loves golf, more so Bill Murray and Jack Lemmon, god rest his soul, that remind us of how good the tour pros are. That’s what you would look like at a pro-am on your damn birthday (i.e. your best round)! So why the hatred, why? What is it you hate? I can tell you this; the reason that Taylormade can justify a 1000 dollar driver is by appealing to that separation between tour pros and the real hacks, (i.e. Charles Barkley). This type of show not only brings more fans to golf, which is essential for the huge purses and numerous events that grow every year, leading to the growing of cheaper courses and a huge selection of golf equipment. If the purists had it their way they’d play old Mashy Nibblies and sit on their gutta percha ball. If it wasn’t for all this growth in the sport, golf would still be a bigot centralized, rich man sport, and that’s just wrong. If they had it their way, Blacks and women would still be carring bags. Think about that the next time you dog the promotions of the PGA tour pro ams.

Leave no doubt about it, Tiger is back. The old Tiger " Tiger Slam Tiger , has warranted a change of additude to the fellow players, get better or die, oh yeah Tiger is back, just look at what Phil has done, Ernie, Vijay, Dimarco, oh yes Tiger is back, we will never see a 9 win 3 major season again, ( Vijay's was a joke, he won the K-Mart Classic 4 times) only because of what Tiger has wrought he must now face better competitors, good for us fans, oh yes Tiger is back, no one shoots a 74 (a miraculous 74 ) then goes 14 under for the final three rounds, no one.............

I cringe whenever I hear talk about bringing "non-golf fans" into the game. Such "fans" tend to be transient, tuning in for the big events or when Tiger is hot. And while they may add to TV audience quantity, they add little to audience quality. (Astute advertisers prefer the loyal viewers who aren't switching over to college basketball during commercial breaks or when Bill Murray isn't on camera while clowning around on the green.) Appeasing the fickle, peripheral fan could lead to tinkering with a sport that needs no tinkering. Just imagine: "For the 2010 PGA season, several major rule changes are in place to make the game, as Commissioner Kenny G puts it, more interesting to the third-tier fan. Most noticeable will be the expansion of the size of the hole on the green to a full 10 inches in diameter. This will result in more long putts, chip shots and even full shots going in the hole . . . "

I completely agree against everything you said. These old washed up geezers should stick to Celebrity Poker and the new "Celebrity Don't Wake Daddy" Game. This is the day and age of animation, and I say bring on the cartoon celebrities. Throw in some 3d animation while you're at it. The perfect foursome would be Tiger, Thomas "Crazy Eyes" Levet, Bugs Bunny, and the Blue guy from TRON. Oh Man this is gold, ratings would be huge. Even more kids would be getting into golf ensuring another generation continues this sport.

Congratulations to Phil Mickelson are in order (and for anyone who shoots a 59 in competition), but a couple of things must be kept in mind. This was a particularly easy golf course under the weather conditions that weekend. That course is designed to play in the wind, and in still, sunny conditions, it had no defense. Even the rough was not much of a factor. Secondly, while you could make the point that this was a "competitive match", let's face it. There was absolutely no pressure involved in winning or losing.
That aside, I'm very happy for Lefty. He's a bright spot on the tour, and I hope he goes on to shoot many more low numbers, and wins several more majors.

First, Canada doesn't want them. Second, why not prosecute them and let the civil authorities take them out of the league for you. But, to be fair, you'd have to prosecute all of them. Even the morons in the stands. Nonetheless, it's time for the professional sports players to realize where they're 'nauseatingly inflated salaries' are coming from. Up here in Edmonton few people miss the NHL. There is a junior hockey league team putting on more entertaining games for about a tenth the price. Stay locked out and go work as a carpenter we are starting say.

Ah, lay off of Buckner. Bill was a used up first baseman with bum knees who simply couldn't get down on Mookie's ball. Like the deal with Steve Bartman, it took the rest of team putzing AFTER the error (interference) for the Sox (Cubs) to blow the series.

There are only so many things that can be done with a clubhead, and most have already been done. Because of current limitations placed on the performance of the ball and driver faces by the USGA, style and panache will start to supercede function with high index golfers. Now if someone can just convince all of them to "miss it quick", the game will improve for everyone.

I know your colleague Tim will disagree, but there is a much more effective way to spend $1500: lessons. Heck, $200 on ebay and 6 lessons at $50 a pop will get you way farther than $1000 of "decent" clubs.

agree most manufacturers offer very forgiving clubheads. It is a matter of the looks you prefer cosmetically. The real focus for golfers should be on the SHAFT! This is the engine of the club, the most important component. If the shaft does not fit your personal swing you will compensate in the swing with wrong moves. When you try to adjust your swing to a shaft that does not fit your swing ball flight will be very INconsistent. We fine tune the shaft to fit your swing. Now you will have the ease of a swing and shot pattern that is consistent. A shaft that fits your swing creates results that give you optimum ball flight. Make the game more fun, lower your scores!

Thanks for telling the truth about the golf club industry. They are all the same. I've been saying it for twenty years. In my book, "Golf's An Easy Game", I also tell how rediculous it is to need an instructor. I have students travel from around the globe to have me teach them how to, very easily, teach themselves. They do it quite successfully, too.
