The Golf Channel, The PGA Tour, and Deep Throat

2 feedbacks »
Kiel's mad that Tim Finchem's heart shrank two more sizes. Dave's pissed that the Golf Channel perhaps treads into false advertising. Tim, predictably, is ga-ga over Kelly T., and wishes she'd "tie his tie." The common cry from the common man concer… more »

Ego-maniac that I am, the wry smile you see when you read my blog just wasn't enough. I found a local camera guy (little Mon) and a closed state park course nearby, and went out for a few holes on Tiger's birthday. The cameralad did his job, so let's h… more »

2007 Golf Notions...Places You Might Be, Things You Might See

In an unanticipated collision of time, space, and Ziparelli, a review-only copy of the Kingdom Of Shivas Irons made its way to my holiday basket in 2006. Inspired by the maniacal, somewhat homo-erotic pursuit of Shivas Irons, I joined a car to a train o… more »

Why should Golf Digest apologize for Osprey Meadows?

2 feedbacks »
It turns out that in Idaho, a course called Osprey Meadows was designed by the Robert Trent Jones, jr. firm. It turns out that an Osprey is a type of bird, and a Meadow is a flatland with flora and fauna. It turns out that Golf Digest's panel of course… more »

World-Stage Foursomes continues to bedevil United States at Golf's World Cup

It's beginning to sound like the opening to an old joke, but I have yet to figure out the punch line. Why can't we play foursomes? Ryder Cup? Nope. Presidents' Cup? Uh-uh. World Cup? 'Course not. Latest evidence presented by the prosecution: 200… more »
