Good thing Jerry Pate's dive didn't break Rules of Golf

Send feedback »
Jerry Pate won today. Not always the most humble guy, he was Payne Stewart before Payne was Payne, and long after Payne stopped being Payne (you follow me?) Old Jerry is one of the few old gassers to have his own website (make clicko here.) However, t… more »

Jerry Kelly: the demon tease

Send feedback »
Jerry Kelly looks like a young Jack Nicholson in his PGA tour dot com mugshot. That's saying quite a lot about Nicholson's age, as Kelly is 39 years young! However, this blog is not in praise of Jerry Kelly, but rather, to bury him. I don't care if he… more »

Steven Bowditch Update

1 feedback »
I can't help but equate his scorecards to a horrific collision of vehicles. They changed his picture on, but Bowditch's scores are still as menacing as his former mug shot. Consider this: First Round at Tucson ... four birdies, four boge… more »

To Beat Wie, You've Got To Be A Little Meena'

88 feedbacks »
Lee, Lee and Wie. Easier to pronounce, if less fun, than Nirapathpongporn or Wonglukiet. There she was, putting on a charge in the style of Joanne Carner or Arnold Palmer. Five under for her first twelve holes, near the lead, and Michelle Wie coul… more »

World Match Play--Final Words

6 feedbacks »
Update # 4 ... All is said and done. Geoff beat Davis and Zach beat Tom. The #1 who surprised me the most was Retief. I thought that he would be the first # 1 out, and he was the last one standing. Match play truly is a window into the soul (more o… more »

Thing I Know I Know--Nissan Open, JB Holmes, Loren Roberts

5 feedbacks »
1. The comportment of the fans at Riviera was embarassing. Since when do golf fans root against someone? I know, I know. Monty and Mrs. Doubtfire, Sergio and the Counting Fans at Bethpage. That's all well and good when it's the Ryder Cup, but for he… more »

When the blogger becomes the story: Kiel, Roberta Isleib, and Cassie Burdette

8 feedbacks »
Over the last few years, I've become a fan of a healthy little golf mystery series. Dr. Roberta Isleib invented a terrific character named Cassie Burdette, a struggling young golf professional with a penchant for involvement in murder-related mysteries.… more »

Cobra Golf gets a boost from JB Holmes and David Feherty

4 feedbacks »
Not since the days of Greg Norman has Cobra had a winner on tour. Back in the late 1980s, the Shark purchased the company and set about driving it to the heavens of popularity. After its sale to American Brands, and later to Acushnet, Cobra was relegat… more »

Big Numbers from PGA Tour--Maltbie, Donald and Weir at AT&T and Spyglass Hill

1 feedback »
I can't even wait until Monday for this one. Playing on a past champion/current announcer/GaryMcCordLookAlike exemption, Roger Maltbie snuck his way into the ATT field this week and teed it up Thursday at Spyglass Hill. He played like Steven Bowditch's… more »

Kai Fieberg Costa Rica Open celebrates a life in death

Send feedback »
If you hang around golf enough, you'll find enough stories to break your heart. Hanging around the European Tour site, I followed a link to the co-sanctioned (Tour de las Americas and Euro Challenge Tour) event in Costa Rica, the Kai Fieberg Costa Rican… more »

Mina Harigae to the "Next Nicklaus" - bragging on your golf pupil's a kiss of death

Send feedback »
Dave Vivolo is not a big name in the world of golf. He is the golf coach at Robert Louis Stevenson School, best know for giving us the Firestone guy on one of those Bachelor seasons, and head pro at Monterey Peninsula Country Club, the Cypress Point of… more »

Tiger Woods' Intimidation Factor: The Color Red or Something Deeper?

11 feedbacks »
Has anyone else noticed the softening of Tiger Woods' intimidating red shirts on Sunday? Gone from Sunday at San Diego were the rubines and the deep maroons. Disappeared from Dubai were the carmines and crimsons that triumphed in major champio… more »

Golf Media Triangle: Tiger Woods at Dubai, Michelle Wie, and John Daly

49 feedbacks »
Only three names drive the golf media triangle into hyperspace: Woods, Wie, and Daly. Wie's failings on the men's tours, coupled with Daly's failings in life, attract vicarious attention like no other news items. To dispense with the vice, this blog i… more »

PGA Tour Cut Line: A Nervous Waiting Game

Shigeki Maruyama, John Senden, Brett Quigley, Bob Tway, Nicholas Thompson and Rod Pampling made the cut on the line Friday in Scottsdale. Ten other guys, including Pavin, Lehman, and Mayfair, missed the cut by a stroke. Six guys get to play for more ca… more »

Mid-Tourney Crisis For Tiger Woods in Dubai

3 feedbacks »
Check out Tiger's first 36 holes in Dubai. They are curious for the following reasons: --Tiger has made 12 birdies and 2 eagles, yet is "only" eleven under par. --Tiger is an aggregate +1 for the 18th hole. Nothing extraordinary if ... it weren… more »
