An unexpected week from one of the little guys of clubmaking: Adams Golf

Send feedback »
Let us be honest...there are no little guys of clubmaking that sponsor professional golfers. Certain companies might choose to spend their marketing dollars in specific ways that do not include pro tour sponsorships, but there are no little guys anymore.… more »

The Greatest Day In Golf: Wednesday at WGC

Send feedback »
Some have suggested (I'll not release names!) that Wednesday at the match play is the single greatest day in golf. For many, this stems from college basketball experiences over the course of the first two days of the NC2A tourney. What's missing from thi… more »

Fantasy Golf Update: Sometimes you get lucky, others you get stuck with the check

Send feedback »
Bubba Watson stuck me with the check this week. I had just returned from a self-imposed "Bubbation." The pink shafted-swinger had let me down 2-3 weeks in a row, so I benched him just before San Diego (remember how that turned out? He won.) After Dustin… more »

It's almost golf season...

When I need two hands to count the number of tours in action, it's almost golf season. This week, the Euro and Asian tours dispute a tournament in India (that's a two-for-one, boys.) The LPGA is in Thailand and the Euro Ladies are in New Zealand. The PGA… more »

Fantasy Golf during a Fantasy Week: Pro-Ams are difficult to pick

Send feedback »
D.A. Points? Tom Gillis? Spencer Levin? Steve Marino for 71 holes? That is the nature of the principal Pro-Am week on the PGA wreaks havoc with your selections. Case in point, even though I had Gillis, I imagined that he would struggle on Sunda… more »

Fantasy Golf Update: February 9th, 2011

Nothing like having your regular Monday column pushed back two days by circumstance. I wish I could recall what the circumstance was, but you wouldn't care, so it wouldn't matter. Nothing like swapping out a C block player for another guy, having your… more »

In a nutshell, I'm a high school teacher with two extra duties:  girls golf coach in the Spring and boys golf coach in the Fall (that is, in addition to chaperoning exchanges to Costa Rica and Spain.) I run a golfing website in western New York, more a l… more »

2011...What Will It Bring In The Way Of New Golf Gear?

I'm sitting in a railway station, got a ticket for my ... no, wait, that was Paul Simon. I'm sitting in my room of dreams, snow falling outside, wind blowing and grass hibernating, thinking of the golfing season. I've made my picks for Fantasy Golf this… more »

Week 4 of Fantasy Golf-Wee changes and Missed ops

Do you know anyone else who left Nick Watney on the bench on Sunday? I did and it cost me 12 points. Not that Marc Leishman played poorly, but Watney chose Sunday to show up? On the heels of my abandonment and public decrial of Bubba "Take That, RonMon!!… more »

Training For The 50K Golfing Equivalent

Every once in a while, I peruse a running magazine to learn what the other half (aerobic exercisers) reads. In the most recent sample, an article on ultra-marathons lept out at me, encouraging me to consider what an ultra-marathoner might eat, how she/he… more »

The storming of Bethpage 2011: Making plans for public golf's holy land

Send feedback »
For years, I've considered Bandon Dunes to be the pinnacle of USA public golf. It may be so, but it is not the epitome of access. That designation falls to the five-course amalgamation on western Long Island, the two-time host of the USGA Open championsh… more »

Golf Sense or, the Change of Movement

A gentlman from England, Roy Palmer, sent a book my way, titled "Golf Sense." The book promises "practical tips on how to play golf in the zone." Ahh, the zone. Fine place to vacation, and we'd all like to live there! Most of us have played our best golf… more »

Snow Golf...Yes, Snow Golf...Really!

I was born and raised in the winter climes. A four-year college escape to North Carolina and a one-year hiatus in southern Ohio did little to disconnect my nervous system from the effects of snow. I have hit golf balls off mats, from heated stalls, onto… more »
