The Florida Swing on the PGA Tour...What's that tourney again?

Send feedback »
Here's a laugh for the day...I couldn't remember which tournament was replaced by the PODS event. It was clear that Honda moved al otro lado de la calle to PGA National from Mirasol. I always liked the quirky bounces at Mirasol, so that's a minus. The… more »

Golf Industry Show in Anaheim is Sexy!

The golf industry show is taking place as you read in Anaheim. Whether it's sexy or not, I have no idea. I used the term as a loss leader, to get you in my store. Here is what I know about the show, courtesy of the PR people at Robert Trent Jones II (… more »

Nothing like a pool to keep the WGC-Accenture alive!

I have a buddy who runs a major championships pool. Four times a year we pick ten guys (only three of the big four allowed) and try to get seven to the weekend. My chum aligns everyone in teams of three, and pays out team and individual each day. For… more »

We've not seen nothing like the mighty Phil (Mickleson, that is.)

I've been mortifying to write this blog entry, since I take a different cue from what happened to Phlabby Phil on Sunday. The way I see it, the playoff win was much more important for C3PO than was the playoff loss for PM. Here's my reasoning: CH3 has… more »

Three best swings of the season...Sorenstam, Quinney and...Bill Murray?????

Send feedback »

Recently, the aged and daft Will Wolfrum insinuated that I rarely link to other pages, blogs, etc. I cannot deny nor confirm that allegation, so I will move on to the business at hand. Paula Creamer has returned to the winner's circle on the LPGA Tour.… more »

Sports Illustrated Golf Running Scared!

I've noticed something lately on the Sports Illustrated website. Michael Bamberger, Alan Shipnuck, John Garrity, and others have supplied the Golf section with multiple articles. The regularity of their postings is cause for alarm only in a cynical wor… more »

Al Shipnuck just cannot get off my radar, otherwise known as my s-list. Talk about dangling an unreachable carrot in front of a braying, drooling donkey! Here he is this week, writing about the Phoenix PGA Tour Stop's collision next year with the NFL's… more »

7th at Pebble Beach makes AT & T Golfers Grumpy

Send feedback »
I am astonished at how many grumpy pusses I see while watching PGATour.Com's "Live At 7" feature on the web. I've watched for two days, and can testify that very few amateurs leave that green with a smile. Let's assess: you are playing in the best pro… more »
