Why I'm pulling for Greg Norman to choke in Asian Open

12 feedbacks »
Greg Norman has it too good these days. Jets off in his private jet to Shanghai with his fiancé, a still gorgeous Chris Evert. Says he's going to do a little business over there. His "business" includes golf course design, real estate, a clothing… more »

Celtic-loving Trevor Immelman is now my new, favorite golfer

1 feedback »
Before the Masters, Trevor Immelman was just sort of a name, a good, solid pro, but essentially just an also-ran with a mildly-amusing name. Now, he's leapt to the front of my leaderboard! After his Masters win, Immelman did the whirlwind-celebrity… more »

What's in a name? A lot, if you're a marketer who wants to use John Daly's name

2 feedbacks »
You'd expect a golf course with the name: "John Daly's Murder Rock Golf and Country Club" to be a handful, wouldn't you? It isn't. It's a good course, definitely, but it's no John Daly-sized back-breaker. Daly had nothing to do with the design,… more »

Tiger Woods certainly no Arnold Palmer at most boring Masters in memory

4 feedbacks »
Tiger Woods has shown time and time again he is no charger. He may be the most dominant player of all time, but he doesn't set hearts aflutter like Arnold Palmer used to do during one of his famous charges. Give Woods the lead and he's a pit bull. Pu… more »

Gary Player at the Masters: Fade away, Black Knight

11 feedbacks »
One of the semi-cool things about the Masters is the way it lets in the old-timers, past champions well past their primes who don't stand a chance in hell of contending. It's a link to the past, a historical showcase that's fun to watch. Most of the t… more »

Tiger Woods toughest athlete? No friggin way!

Sports Illustrated was probably thinking shock and awe when it recently named Tiger Woods the toughest athlete, followed by Alaska dog musher Lance Mackey. We've all done it in the media, come up with something just to create controversy. Not me, of c… more »

The Masters at Augusta National is the weakest of the majors

Mark Sweeney of the New York Times has an interesting story about Tiger Woods. Sweeney delved into the stats to emphasize what most of us already knew: Woods is lackluster in some departments, like driving accuracy, but light years ahead in others, like… more »

Stewart Cink victim of golf's anal anarchy

3 feedbacks »
The obsession over rules is a big reason so many conservatives are drawn to the game of golf. Personally, I pay little attention to the rules when I play. Neither do my brothers, who like to tee it up on the fairways to make irons shots easier. People… more »
