My Day at Crumpin Fox

4 feedbacks »
Some days are simply better than others. In the end, sitting in a Motel 6 Room in Brattleboro, Vermont, using a $2.99 wireless card, looking back on a 6.5 hour trip, a 3-hour course review and photo shoot, and a running-on-fumes dash through the Massach… more »

Follow the script! Tiger v. AK

Send feedback »
I cannot help but think that Tiger Woods scripted this one perfectly. He waited to see how the field would shake out, then played decently enough to ensure a tied-for-first, final-round-pairing with Anthony Kim. The Host v. The Defender for all the mar… more »

Take a look at the first-round leaderboard of the Jamie Farr Classic and you'll see Carolyn Bivens' dream come to life. You have the wily veteran (Laura Diaz), the Nordic queens (Suzann Pettersen and Minea Blomqvist), the Korean trio (Song Hee Kim, Jiya… more »

Rafael Echenique wanted for attempted robbery

Rafael Echenique played his final eight holes at the BMW Championship in eagle-birdie-birdie-par-birdie-par-birdie-DOUBLE EAGLE. The temerity of the thief, attempting to steal a tournament that Nick Dougherty had seized by the throat with a nearly-flawl… more »

You aint seen nothing yet from Tiger, John Seibel

I was driving home tonight, debating whether to listen to Vanessa Carlton sing -A Thousand Miles- again (always gets to me, makes me think of Latrell in White Chicks) or check out some John Seibel on the radio. Imagine my surprise when JS seized the opp… more »

USGA Womens Amateur Public Links Final: A Great Performance

9 feedbacks »
One of the great USGA final match performances is taking place as I type. Jennifer Song, an underdog heading into the championship match with Kimberly Kim, is currently nine under par through 28 holes of the scheduled 36 holer. That performance places… more »

Prediction: Barnes V. Hunter II

1 feedback »
As it is fun to make predictions, how about a rematch of the 2002 US Amateur final between Barnes and Mahan? As we know, Barnes struggle mightily during his first 6 or so years as a pro while Mahan made the 2008 Presidents Cup and 2009 Ryder Cup teams.… more »

Three more books on golf to read when not watching...

the US Open. Let us face it, brethren, the gods of golf have much wet weather in store for the valiant cut-makers over the next three days. If you, as I, can only stomach so many replays, highlights, lowlights and the ilk, then it is time to go to a ne… more »

Let me tell you something about Tiger that you do know...

4 feedbacks »
Tiger does not care much once the tournament is finalized. Once this Open at Bethpage is completed, with a trophy inscribed with some other name, he will focus his attention on his continued recovery (did you forget that he is still rehabilitating?) and… more »

Thursday Morning at the US Open: Delineation of the Turbidity

5 feedbacks »
...A few years back, I went to Kohler with some friends and played the four courses of Herb Kohler/Pete Dye. As we walked up 17, our two caddies played a prank on us by describing a lake condition they called "delineation of the Turbidity." As I watche… more »

Thoughts from day one at Bethpage: US Open

1 feedback »
...A while ago, I anticipated attending at least 5 US Opens this decade. Having a daughter whose birthday falls on Bloomsday, June 16th, made Winged Foot and Oakmont impossibilities. Bethpage Black marks my third, following Shinnecock and Bethpage Da' F… more »

Not my Red Shirt! says Tiger

1 feedback »
Want a small piece of history? No, not the red shirt that got fist-pumped to great heights last Open Sunday at Torrey Pines. Yes, its predecessors from days one, two and three. Upper Deck is selling (not auctioning, as far as I can tell, for charity)… more »

How to improve the Golf Digest US Open Challenge

2 feedbacks »
All right, we have seen it for two consecutive years: average Joe fails to break 100 on US Open course. The late John Atkinson missed by a bunch at Torrey and Larry Giebelhausen failed by a deuce this year at Bethpage. Do I anticipate next year's guin… more »
