I know you've been holding your breath. The five finalists are in for the "Who's behind your success" essay contest sponsored by Natalie Gulbis and some accounting firm. I read through the five finalists' essays, and they were pretty impressive. One w… more »

Who needs Tiger Woods? U.S. would not have won Ryder Cup with Woods on team

7 feedbacks »
I'm not saying Tiger Woods isn't the greatest player on earth, so there's no need for you Tiger fans out there to treat me like I'm dirt or Lee Westwood. But, Woods isn't a team player, at least in the Ryder Cup sense. He has never made any bones abou… more »

First of all, I'm going to pair up all the rookies with each other. That way, none of the stink or taint from previous Ryder Cup humiliations will rub off. 1- J.B. Holmes and Boo Weekley. I was tempted to put Weekley with Ben Curtis to calm Curtis' ne… more »

I'm a guy who pays attention to slope ratings, that number they give to golf courses that supposedly tells you how hard it is for the average hacker. So I gasped a little when I played Mystic Rock at the Nemacolin Woodlands Resort in Pennsylvania the… more »

LPGA backs off on English requirement, sort of

Is Nick Faldo's Ryder Cup craziness based on prejudice? He doesn't like the Irish or the Scots?
