I Have Lost A Bit Of Respect For Brady Riggs

Brady Riggs has always been one of my favorite writing pros. He had been involved with third-tier magazines before being snapped up by a first-tier magazine in 2007. Until today, I was a devotee. Now, I am adrift in the seas of disillusionmentationism… more »

European Ryder Cup Team Preview

Three other events have our attention this week. In the annual "this event predicts success for no one" event for women, Amanda Blumenhurst takes on Azahara Munyoz (no tilde for the "n," so I substituted a "y") in the 2-round final. Both finalists play… more »

Response To Tim McDonald's Hunter Mahan-Ryder Cup blog entry

7 feedbacks »
Two points on Tim's blog entry...the bloom is off the rose and the Cup events are seen in their entirety as the money-making shams they are. Sure, there's some history, but that certainly doesn't matter to the organizers. It might be the most stressful… more »

Get Pissed, Michelle!

I am most certainly not encouraging the young Hawaiian lass to get drunk in a British way. I am encouraging her to get angry after her 3rd-hole bogey. I have never seen her pump herself up like Dottie Pepper used to do, like many great players do. She… more »

Let the suppositions begin! Wie birdies seventeen and parred eighteen to get back to +1 for round one. She's probably two shots outside the cut line. more »

Golf Related SPAM Has A Literature Of Its Own, Just Ask Bin Laden

5 feedbacks »
I have a piece of spam sitting in my inbox that I do not dare open. I am the fool of no one, unlike Chris Baldwin, who is the fool for all. As the director of a 3000-address email list, I receive a lot of spam in the box reserved for that list, over 20… more »

Through A Different Lens...Video At The Porter Cup

Throughout this politicized year of living dangerously through a rose-colored lens, I was forced into actual lens alteration. My Tamron zoom made a trip home to the factory after giving up the dreaded ERR 99. Despite the best efforts of various cyberna… more »
