Have you been to one of the PGA Tour’s Superstores yet? It’s like walking into a Home Depot, except with golf clubs instead of plywood. No surprise there, since the stores are owned by the same people who brought us Home Depot. Their motto is "… more »

Maybe Tiger Woods is indeed the greatest golfer ever to breathe air on earth, but he doesn't exactly take your breath away with stirring, dramatic finishes, does he? Unless he's trying to let someone else in the back door because of his own fear. I me… more »

I miss Michelle Wie. She was so easy to pick on,. Now that she's gone, who do we have to mock? It gets old picking on Phil Mickelson. Of course, Wie isn't exactly gone, she's just injured. She's now ranked 18th in the official world rankings,… more »

Tiger Woods will not dominate at Doral

7 feedbacks »
Everybody's predicting Tiger Woods will mop up the field in this weekend's CA Championships at Doral. I don't think so. I think he'll struggle. Golf is a game of feel, even at Tiger's level, and he ain't feeling it right now. Woods blew up at Ar… more »

If you’re planning a visit to Charleston, and especially if you’re a fan of lowcountry cuisine, make sure you stop in at Jestine’s Kitchen. I got lucky: it’s right across the street from the King Charles Inn, where I’m staying, and I more or le… more »

Tired of watching K.J. Choi and Daniel Chopra? Want more Tiger Woods? Here's how

3 feedbacks »
I used to think the best job in pro sports was being a mediocre, starting pitcher in the Major Leagues. Let's say you're one of those guys who goes 15-12 in any given year. Not a superstar, obviously, just a solid starter. You're highly valued by owne… more »

Golf in Tallahassee hillier than you might expect
