Finality of Golf

1 feedback »
On the heels of the Jim Joyce, blown call in major league baseball, I was left considering the finality of golf. I cannot think of more than one situation in golf where there is any chance of a similar ruling taking place (and I'll get to that one situat… more »

How to judge a chicken soup golf book by its cover

3 feedbacks »
I happened across an unimportant anecdote in a worthless book called “Chicken Soup For The Soul: Tales of Golf and Sport—The Joy, Frustration and Humor of Golf and Sport.” The book was a gift to me, presented (if such a verb can resist such denigration)… more »

The Phoenix Golf Links in Columbus, Ohio: Removing an eyesore

Masters 2010: Not The Year To Be In Europe!

4 feedbacks »
I love Spain; I am currently in the north, in Asturias, in Gijon. Golf exists up here, but the real sporting news (besides Sporting Gijon) is the Real Madrid-FC Barcelona match of Saturday. The team of Sergio Garcia and Cristiano Ronaldo lost by a deuce… more »

Idle no longer, thanks to Eidolon Wedges

That dreaded and anticipated, first round of the year becomes less violent with each passing celebration. Rather than a sense of fear, washing over me is a sense of uncertainty, salted with amusement. Attempting to recall to my active ability the sensati… more »

Ping Moon-Lite II carry bag brings me back ...

1 feedback »
to my high school days, one strap over my shoulder, alternating sides each hole. During the late 1970s and early 1980s, dual-shoulder straps had yet to find life, let alone acceptance. We ALL carried single-strap bags and the really cool golfers (no, not… more »

Fantasy Golf Strikes Again...I am still slumping

A Word of Warning to Ai Miyazato

4 feedbacks »
Ai Miyazato has had quite a start to the 2010 LPGA season.  She stormed back in Thailand with a final-round 63 to defeat Suzann Pettersen by one, then turned in a workwoman-like 69 on a Sunday in Singapore (when no one went lower than 67) to win by two f… more »

The greatest sports scandal ever...hardly.

5 feedbacks »
Many have inquired on the web, in print, at the water cooler, if the Tiger Woods liaison scandal is the greatest sports ignominy of all time. I do not so believe, for two reasons. First, Tiger Woods did not break a law. Scandal-mongers tend to look fa… more »
