Send feedback »
It took more than one day to resolve the opening fourballs (better ball in the good new USA); the afternoon foursomes (alternate shot) never broke ground. No doubt the armchair caddying and second-guessing has begun. It's such a fun sport and inexact sci… more »

1.  I played 18 holes in three hours last night...teed off at 5:15 and finished around 8:30. The front nine took about 1 hour, 15 minutes...just as I came up to nine green, a foursome snuck out ahead of me on ten and held me up the entire inward half. Ke… more »

Why I Will Not Write About Tiger Woods

4 feedbacks »
He might be a sitting duck for some writers. Perhaps he represents the tough guy, the bully, the cool kid that you/we/I always wanted to topple in grade/middle/high school (please don't say 'life' here...you need to move on!) Despite the way he moves to… more »
