3 feedbacks »
It's not that I'm jealous of pampered millionaires, it's more that I despise them and would like to steal their money, wives and inflict a savage beating on them if I could get away with it. Why is the Golf Channel televising this? It's a clubby, litt… more »

Top-10 picks to challenge Tiger Woods

2 feedbacks »

Stewart Cink the new Greg Norman

15 feedbacks »
Stewart Cink is such a nice guy, he doesn't earn the criticism of other infamous, choke-prone golfers do, like Greg Norman used to. Yet, there he was, choking yet again Sunday at the PODS Championship, blowing yet another third-round lead. Cink is… more »

The plague of slow play – blame the pros

9 feedbacks »
I've often said that part of the problem of slow play is amateurs trying to copy the pros. I see it all the time. Guy putting for triple bogey circles his putt three times, studying it from every angle, then missing it by 10 feet. Then does the same t… more »
