I don't normally preview equipment reviews, but this is one I'm pretty excited about. I've been carrying around an F2 wedge in my bag for a while, but I've been avoiding testing it because it's so ugly. I glanced at it from time to time, but did a… more »

Jack Nicklaus too soft in Presidents Cup

4 feedbacks »
I rescind my demand for Jack Nicklaus to be U.S. Ryder Cup captain. Nicklaus conceded a 3-foot putt to Vijay Singh on the 18th hole in the first round of the President's Cup to give the international team its only point, a half point actually. Then… more »

The longest golf course in the world

Fed Ex Cup first season: even $10 million can't guarantee excitement

5 feedbacks »
The first Fed Ex Cup is over and I'm betting most of the known world still doesn't know what happened. Even CBS said it would not bore us with all the details. Oh, we all know Tiger Woods won it. No surprise there. And in truth, even the PGA Tour can'… more »
