LPGA versus PGA Tour: Can women be as diverse as men?

"Where are the LPGA fans obsessed with their tour’s Chris DiMarco equivalent?" This quote, from a recent Chris Baldwin Blog, got me thinking lately. Heck, it even distracted me from my alma mater's great win in the ACC football championship. Doubl… more »

A poor young man failed in his attempt to sue a school district for the right to compete as a male on a female interscholastic athletic team. This hearkens back to Brian Kontak's bragadaccio about participating in the US Women's Open with his wee-wee in… more »

LPGA Tour Qualifying School...Get REAL, as in Real-Time Scoring

1 feedback »
This is almost laughable. Is Carolyn Bivens broke already? Can't LPGA.Com afford real-time scoring for their Q-School? Around the corner at PGATour.com, the scoring system is the same as for any weekly event. The ladies are reduced to posting PDFs ea… more »

Bowditch: The Real Story

4 feedbacks »
Sometimes numbers lie. If they don't lie, they certainly don't tell the whole story. I've spent the better part of 2006 using Steven Bowditch' misfortunes as fodder for at least one blog per month. You'd think I might have dug a little deeper, imagine… more »

Ranking the live leaderboards (PGA Tour wins)

It might surprise you to find out that RonMon is half-mennonite, half technologian, and half baked. We know that adds up to three halves, but the third half explains it all. The half-mennonite refers to the fact that cable television is absent in the Mon… more »

Old MacDonald: Bandon might be a nice place for an internship

With all the news lately about the fourth course at Bandon Dunes, perhaps the most interesting is the role of Tom Doak as architect. Doak calls his design firm Renaissance Golf, and his team of architects, renaissance men. Mike Keiser, the buddha of ba… more »

The Gloves Are Off...RonMon Takes On CB

9 feedbacks »
Time for a good battle of words with a fellow blogger. Don't you hate it when bloggers kow-tow to each other, avoiding a toe-stomp? Well, none of that here at TG. Why, I remember back in the day when I used to argue with Old McDonald and Bold-Whine ab… more »

Halloween Costume Choices In The Love III Household
