1 feedback »
Let's get directly to the corpses: Zach Johnson, Brett Wetterich, and (probably) Vaughn Taylor will not be in the top ten of the USA Ryder Cup team when Sunday evening mizzles in. Lumpy, Davis, Cink-Port, Kelly and Glover all have a shot at double-point… more »

I'm just too giddy for words. Another Hawaiian teenager, Miss Kimberly Kim from Hilo, has qualified for the finals of the Women's am. She faces a marauding German in Katharina Schallenberg, so she'll need to be on top of her game to win the 36-hole mar… more »

Thistle while you work...In Calabash, North Carolina

1 feedback »
Like the seven dwarves, I whistled at Thistle on Friday, so relaxed was the round of golf. Perhaps I owed it to being on the white tees, some 1000 yards shorter than the tips to which I am accustomed. Either way, I would have enjoyed this round. I had… more »

Briefly, the USA ladies kept the Cup. They seem to do what the professionals cannot do...get out to an early lead, withstand a challenge, and win the darned thing. Pacific Dunes must have provided tremendous vistas for this exhibition of shotmaking and… more »
