Feet Sheaths: What's New In Golf Socks In 2012

Send feedback »
Taken for grante, are the feet. Taken for granted, too, are the socks that protect them. It's the shoe that gets the glory (can I get an Amen?) Fancy colors, swirls, chevrons and swooshes, with stripes thrown in for best measure. Kicks from the playgrou… more »

Love at first sight: The Butch Harmon About Golf DVDs

Send feedback »
I had to scrap plans to head to Vegas to hang with Butch for a few days. I can't remember if it was the intimidation factor (he was working with Tiger or Adam or Dustin at the time) or the intimidation factor (his personal tutoring fee was a number that… more »

Australia might be Jessica Korda's and your top golf destination

Send feedback »
From my perspective, the anointing of a new great player or great place ensures that others will take umbrage and raise their level of performance. With all the attention that Lexi Thompson has received over the past year, it's understandable that other… more »

Not since Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the door at the Castle Church in Wittenberg has such a polemic developed around a statement of purpose. Robert Trent Jones II, golf course architect based in Palo Alto, California (and one of the finalists… more »

Golf Without Fear from Dave Pelz-Latest Contribution To Golf Instruction

1 feedback »
We all benefit from a kick in the pants as much as we despise its taste and sensation. While I don't believe that Dave Pelz ever rested too much on his laurels, the arrival of Stan Utley on the short game-instruction scene in the mid 2000s served as the… more »

Two Shirts I'm Dying To Try: Antigua & Tommy Hilfiger

Wouldn't you know that Antigua and Tommy Hilfigger would debut new shirts as the snow settled down a second time across the Niagara Frontier? Wouldn't you know that a writer buddy would text from Belleair Country Club in Clearwater,Florida, with tal… more »

Major Championships and Generations

Send feedback »
I was driving home to some PGA Tour radio on XM when I came to a realization...the Masters is not a major and will be the first one to go. Go when? When the paradigm shift to the east takes place. You see, it makes no sense to have three out of four maj… more »

The first snow, the last tournament: Central Illinois Charity Classic dissolves on LPGA Tour

Send feedback »
That dreaded first snowfall arrived on December 9th here. Golfers suspect that a few more rounds might truly be stolen in western New York, but the consistent call to play is now restricted to golf domes and simulator locations. The same day, I recei… more »

Cross Golf USA: A fine line of apparel

Send feedback »
It might have been the moment when I stepped to the tee of a district golf association fundraising event and the chorus rang out: "Hey, Poulter...Ian Poulter!" Well, I striped one down the middle and too a step back, feeling more than just a bit like th… more »

Mighty English finish comes up shy at Omega Mission Hills World Cup as USA triumphs

Send feedback »
Are they any good at foursomes in England? Yep. Nine-Under par from Poulter and Rose, including a 16th hole eagle, came up two strokes shy of team USA (Kuchar and Woodland) as the USA duo recovered from a day-two 70 with weekend jaunts of 63 (fourball)… more »

Presidents Cup day 1: Plenty of surprises?

Send feedback »
I like the idea that every golfer plays every day. I also like the extension of the team event to four days ... three or two days are way too brief for the festival that these events should be. The Presidents Cup lacks only the jingoism of "us versus th… more »

Arnie and Phil make headlines pre-Veterans Day

Send feedback »
Last week was slightly more interesting than you might have anticipated. Next week brings us the Presidents Cup from Royal Melbourne, but paparazzi are few and far between when it comes to golf until then. So Arnie went out, with a new set of Callawa… more »

Steve Williams Is A Braying Donkey, A Rooster, Lawnmower Guy

1 feedback »
Take your pick...braying donkey, rooster that wakes you too early, lawnmower guy who cranks up the B & S at 7:30 a.m. All of them have in common their ability/urge to simultaneously gather our attention and remind us how self-centered they are. S… more »

Might As Well Send In Your Ballot

A few weeks back, immediately after Luke Donald's run to the money title of the USA PGA Tour, said tour announced that ballots for its Player Of The Year would be held up until after this week's HSBC Champions event in Shanghai. This was news to all, as… more »

Golf course architecture in the blogosphere

During the hours when I'm not turning out prose for TravelGolf.Com, spanking the wee whitey around the links or watching the children grow up, I learn about golf course architecture. A noted forum on the web accepted me as a member a few years back, so… more »
