Major newspaper gives big coverage to LPGA

279 feedbacks »
I am impressed. The newspaper USA Today has trumped any and all other coverage for the 2007 season on the LPGA Tour. I had planned to write a little something myself about all the interesting stories that will unfold this year, but I’d feel like I was… more »

Nissan Open will be great golfing theater - and it doesn’t include Tiger Woods

7 feedbacks »
Don’t know if Spencer Hux will watch the Nissan Open but I’m sure most real golf fans will tune in, that is, if they can’t get there in person. SHux wrote an article last week whining about how boring golf is without Tiger Woods in the field. The o… more »

Tournament Golf is great without Tiger Woods

8 feedbacks »
It's the game, Spence, not the players. Yes, Tiger Woods is the best golfer alive, at present, and likely the best we’ll ever see play the game. But that doesn't mean tournaments are boring when he's not around. Far from it. In fact, it could be argued… more »

Hale Irwin is nearly the Senior Golf equivalent of Tiger Woods

1 feedback »
It almost pains me to write this because no fan of Hale Irwin am I. He’s got one of those personalities that only a mother could love. But it’s that very same mental and emotional make-up strikes fear in hearts of most every golfer on the Senior …… more »

Phil Mickelson handles disaster well, unlike Greg Norman

4 feedbacks »
The question Phil Mickelson will try to answer on the course as soon as possible is whether or not he has recovered from the 72nd hole collapse in the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot. One thing he is not doing – like Greg Norman always has done – is tr… more »

T-Fooj: What’s not to like about Tadd Fujikawa?

13 feedbacks »
Only golf can produce a story so ridiculous that fiction writers would call it too unbelievable to put on paper. How in the world can a youngster – extremely small in stature at 5’1” & barely 16 years old – challenge a collection of some of t… more »

Vijay Singh: Golf's most under-appreciated superstar

35 feedbacks »
30 wins. 3 major championships. No. 1 player in the world DURING the Tiger Woods era. Member of the Golf Hall of Fame. Vijay Singh gets a bad rap, I think, because he is not a politician. He is blunt and honest to a fault. And the world is not read… more »

U.S. President Gerald R. Ford and former First Golfer - R.I.P.

2 feedbacks »
Like most Americans, I admit to mixed feelings about the late President Ford. Not exactly armed with what you'd call a vibrant personality, he seemed to be a solid and decent First Citizen. As he inherited the mother of all horrible political situations… more »

Sorry, Sports Illustrated, but the Best Tournament of 2006 was Played by Women

10 feedbacks »
A recent article on the Sports Illustrated website tagged the U.S. Open as the best tournament of 2006 and the Open Championship second, while the Kraft Nabisco Championship came in third. What I want to know is this: What kind of drugs are they smokin'… more »

Let me preface this article with an old joke. A police officer in a patrol car signals a speeding car to pull over to the side of the road. There are two young males in the front seat. When the officer walks up to the car, the driver rolls down his wi… more »

LPGA Resume of Lorena Ochoa Still Lacking, Barely

Who said there's no such thing as miracles? Just a few months ago PGA of America President Roger Warren was staunchly defending that lame Ryder Cup selection system which only awarded performance points for top ten finishes. Then they asked the wonderful… more »
