High Drama on Open Sunday...If you can't go low, go home

Send feedback »
I know, I know...you've called the men in white coats to come and get me. While eyes were trained on the region of Hoyl Lake and the 67s of Woods and O'Hair, I was looking at central New York and the rolling flatlands of Verona and Vernon. The tourname… more »

The B.C. Open, The T.S. Open, or simply, The Open

Send feedback »
Many pretenders delude themselves by misleading others that "The Open" championship is under contest this week on a continent other than North America. Upstate New York, specifically Verona, is the site of the true "Open" championship of July, 2006. Fo… more »

I'm sitting here resting my bones...that's from a song by Otis Redding. Anyway, while I'm resting my bones, I'm reading an article in the August issue of one of the major magazines,by Dave Pelz, on short game distances. In my life at golf, I've read two… more »

The Italian Heritage festival is in full swing on Hertel Avenue in Buffalo. Lots of fattening foods and fun rides for the adults and kids. Lots of attractions whose prior billing may not live up to reality. Funny how entertainment mirrors real life.… more »

What Tim Finchem planned for 2007, Mother Nature brought about in 2006. The B.C. Open has officially been moved from En-Joie Golf Club to Atunyote Golf Club at Turning Stone Resort, denying the small central New York town one last opportunity to enterta… more »

Crow Creek in Calabash...The best of the Carolina Coasts

Crow Creek is in the right place at the right time. If you are over the age of 25, tired of the madness of Highway 17 North Business, yet not of the age yet to enjoy the extreme tranquility of the towns south of Myrtle (Murrells Inlet, Pawleys Island, an… more »

Wachesaw East is not Wacha' get in Murrels Inlet

1 feedback »
Wachesaw East is not Wachesaw Plantation. With a 6:30 tee time, Uncle and I had precious little time to waste on screw-ups. We spun our ride around and went the five minutes to the correct Plantation, in time to sneak into our spot, get the First Group f… more »

2 feedbacks »
The MonFam arrived in Surfside Beach on Sunday, and Mr. Mon headed to True Blue on Monday for his first taste of Mike Strantz golf. Having read for years about this architect who left us too soon, it was time to experience his worth first-hand. True B… more »

Nicklaus got a bill, but Sifford earned respect

5 feedbacks »
No one is belittling anything Jack Nicklaus ever did...that he was denied Freedom Of The City (as Bobby Jones and Ben Franklin received before him) was a bit snippy on the part of the meisters of the burgh of St. Andrews. However, the blow was cushioned… more »

K Club's terminal triumvirate sure to trample, trash and torture in 2006 Ryder Cup

3 feedbacks »
Never too early to fire the first salvo in the Ryder Cup wars. Taking a virtual tour of the K Club's Palmer Course, it occurs to me that more blood might be spilled, and more shorts might be stained, by the closing triumvirate of holes than at Kiawah Isl… more »

New Tee Time Setup On PGA Tour Is ... Brilliant!!

Having just crawled out from under a rock, I beg your forgiveness. The new tee time structure on the PGA tour has me in awe of someone (maybe Finchem, maybe not). I stumbled onto today's tee times, Sunday at Booz Allen, as I was pirouetting through the… more »

Caddies take center stage at US Open at Winged Foot

8 feedbacks »
The way I see it, Miles Byrne (Ian Woosnam and the 15th club) and Christopher (Jean Van de Velde and the driver on 18 at Carnoustie) have company in the caddie hall of shame. They can now hold chairs for Monty's looper and Bones MacKay, who could have sh… more »
