Monster Road Trips for 2006

2 feedbacks »
Bandon ruined me. I'll come clean. When my wife mentioned a sweet trip to commemorate my 40th in 2005, I didn't think twice. Monterrey, Orlando, Michigan, New Mexico all took a back seat to the southern coast of Oregon. Then, the event surpassed the… more »

Which Wone Will Win, Wolfrum?

2 feedbacks »
So this guy, Wolfrum, claims that a Euro player will win a major in 2006. Only trouble is, he fails to name names, make predictions, etcetera. OK, here is my prediction: a two-legged homo sapien will win a major in 2006, and he will be of anglo, latin… more »

The Night Before Christmas, When All 'Round The Course...

Send feedback »
Think that a few guys between seven and seventeen under aren't sleeping well tonight? Me too. The way I see it, -14 will be the magic number for top 30 and full playing privileges on the PGA Tour in 2006. Exactly 30 guys are at -11 after five rounds,… more »

The Mother Of All Moving Days: Tour School Day Four

Send feedback »
Six guys at -7 or better. A dozen more at -5. That's what I call a moving day. If you shoot even par today, you might drop from first to fifth, like Michael Allen has so far, or from T2 to T13, as is the case with Danny Ellis. The volcanic Ryan Hieta… more »

Meltdown: Reversed

Send feedback »
Ryan Hietala showed his mettle on Friday by reversing the riptide that pulled him out to sea. The stretch of holes that punished him in eight strokes over par on Thursday, found him four under on Friday, on the way to a 66. Moving from t2 to t73 to t19… more »

The typical press release that comes across the wire extends to club debuts, consumer reactions, and player victories. So it was with special attention that I opened a release on November 22nd whose subject read: Major Crackdown on Counterfeit Golf Pro… more »

Meltdown

Send feedback »
Ryan Hietala ... looks like a cool dude. Blond hair, short and spiked, little bit of facial hair ... Shot six-under the first day at Q-School, eagled his first hole of day two, stood 8-under with 69 holes to play, then the meltdown began... bogey-bogey-… more »

Show some true *&^% emotion on the final nine holes: The Scams Game

Send feedback »
Here is my rant for Saturday, as television coverage for the Skins Game is going to get underway on the East coast. All that schmoozing and joking on the first eight holes is cute the first time, redundant and falacious each subsequent instance. Here's… more »

The Right Stuff

On a day when no one approached his first-round 66, Lonnie Nielsen showed that he might be poised to step up a level on the Champions Tour. After an opening-round 66, the question mark was preceded by the thought: can he hold up? After three consecuti… more »

Things I think I know ...

I think that Peter Uihlein, recently-crowned AJGA player of the year, must be related to Titleist boss Wally Uihlein. The last name kind of gives it away. Does Peter play Nike or Taylor-Made equipment? Ping? I think that geometry somehow could ha… more »
