Flat-Lining The Shovel: Applying the Tiger Technique

What is Tiger Woods writing about these days?

4 feedbacks »
I could hardly wait to crack open a cold bottle of Golf Digest, circa November 2007. After all, Tiger Woods promised that I could "Try my flat-line tee-shot technique to hit more fairways." Cool, thought I. Even if I'm hitting all 14 driving fairways… more »

Let's Hope USA-Europe Has Flavor of Local High School Match

Trip Kuehne...America's Gary Wolstenholme in the Walker Cup

1 feedback »
Now that the semifinalists for the 2006 US Amateur have been decided, it is time to posit a theory that may hold little interest for many, but should be discounted by none. Trip Kuehne, of the golfing Kuehnes, should be granted (royally or otherwise) a p… more »

Google Eagle and you should come up with Reno...after Will MacKenzie made three eagles in one round on Thursday, Yusaku Miyazato dunked two tee balls on par threes on Friday. So what wins in Reno, three of a kind or two aces? Not to be forgotten, MacKe… more »

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 »
