3 feedbacks »
Intrepid and hirsute reporter Will Willfrum (err, Wolfrum) informs on Dwight Monreal's attack by gator at Tampa Palms G&CC in a recent blog. Impressed and curious, I delved deeply into the CNN home page and came up with the following link to T-Shirt… more »

Duramed Futures Tour Louisiana Pelican Classic offers a classic finish

Casey has returned...No Ty Tryon story for him

Send feedback »

China's Wen-Chong Liang Should Do Better In 2009 Masters Championship

Send feedback »
I'm sure that Mr. Liang is looking forward to a return trip to Augusta National in 2009. He is a fine player who placed 12th at the Zurich Classic last week, although he could not recapture that form in Georgia. Liang does most of his playing in Asia… more »

Masters Sunday: How will Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and Padraig Harrington handle 8-Hole Stretch?

Send feedback »
Holes 9-13 are playing as five of the most difficult six holes on Sunday at Augusta National. They account for more than 1/3 of the bogeys and double bogeys on the day. The next trio, however, are three of the easiest five of the round. Holes 14-16 ac… more »

Masters Sunday: Tiger Woods leaves Phil Mickelson in the dust, but what about the rest?

Send feedback »
It's funny how, in the early stages of the final round, Tiger Woods is looking up at golfers we'd never have imagined in contention. With Ernie Els now working with Butch Harmon, the Big Easy might have made an inspired early run. Not to be. With Phil… more »

Masters Sunday: Western winds blow up and down Augusta's corridors

Send feedback »
It's interesting how many of Augusta National's holes run north and south. Current conditions indicate 20-30 mph winds with 25-35 mph gusting. These should last until 6:30, long enough to wreak havoc on the field. Here are a few of the interesting win… more »

Masters Sunday: 3rd Hole is The Round Wrecker

1 feedback »
It's only 350 yards long, but it will ruin more early runs than any other hole. It's so birdieable that you cannot fathom making par, so you bogey it. Bubba Watson started out birdie...birdie...you guessed it not long ago. Instead of going to -1 for t… more »
