Numbers from the tours this week

You've noticed by now that I like to look at high and low scores. Like a blockbuster movie, I love the holes that cause train wrecks and rescues, the ones that move you WAY up or WAY down. Here's what we have in this hemisphere for this week: High Rin… more »

I was driving along when it hit me: Superman always wilted in the presence of kryptonite on Earth, right? So how come we see all those Kryptonians cruising around their planet, before it blew up, as if nothing was the matter? The whole planet was made… more »

Punctuating his four days in Palm Springs with a six-bogey, one-double, one-triple, three-birdie Saturday, Steven Bowditch's over-par performance necessitated a trip to the drug store. Kaopectate, Immodium, gas-x, anything to relieve the spate of flatule… more »

Bowditch: THE Story of the Bob Hope Classic

1 feedback »
You know that a story is developing when a guy plays the same course as Mr. 60 (aka Pat Perez) on the same day, in 19 more strokes. I took a quick look at Steven Bowditch's numbers on Wednesday at the Palmer Course, and realized that he made two doubles… more »

Seven birdies are hard to ignore!
