Golf courses are getting to be dangerous places. I was at The Pearl in the north Grand Strand recently, and saw an ambulance on an adjacent fairway, not something you want to see when you start a round. It turns out there had been a minor injury involvin… more »

Michelle Wie may break the modern-era record for excuses. Another bogey, another excuse. Another double-bogey, another excuse. Another missed cut against the men, another excuse. This time, it's homework, of all things. After carving a 78 at the Om… more »
