1 feedback »

US Amateur Day Two of Match Play: whom to continue watching

Send feedback »
The twins are, coincidentally, both out of the tournament. The Fathauer boys got knocked out, coincidentally, on the 17th hole. One lost, 3 and 1; the other, 2 and 1. The parents are still trying to determine which was which. The Euro Walker Cup guys… more »

Thank God Medinah is not acting like a major!

2 feedbacks »
Tim "Old" McDonald, the farmer of prose, lends the notion that Medinah is not acting like a major. Thank God, I respond, Thank God. For too long the notion that under par is a no-no at a major has seeped insipidly into the golf-viewer psyche, to the poin… more »

1 feedback »
Let's get directly to the corpses: Zach Johnson, Brett Wetterich, and (probably) Vaughn Taylor will not be in the top ten of the USA Ryder Cup team when Sunday evening mizzles in. Lumpy, Davis, Cink-Port, Kelly and Glover all have a shot at double-point… more »

I'm just too giddy for words. Another Hawaiian teenager, Miss Kimberly Kim from Hilo, has qualified for the finals of the Women's am. She faces a marauding German in Katharina Schallenberg, so she'll need to be on top of her game to win the 36-hole mar… more »

Thistle while you work...In Calabash, North Carolina

1 feedback »
Like the seven dwarves, I whistled at Thistle on Friday, so relaxed was the round of golf. Perhaps I owed it to being on the white tees, some 1000 yards shorter than the tips to which I am accustomed. Either way, I would have enjoyed this round. I had… more »
