Going to miss those floating casinos in Biloxi

Send feedback »
I loved Biloxi, Mississippi before Katrina, and I'll probably love it after. The casinos are already re-building and some expect to be open before the new year, albeit in extremely temporary quarters. But, most if not all, will be building on land, wi… more »

Sorenstam not getting enough credit

8 feedbacks »

Ladies: more to Augusta than Hootie and the blowhards

2 feedbacks »
Ladies, just because you can't get into Augusta doesn't mean you can't golf here. In less than a week, I've found several courses that, while not on a par with Augusta National certainly, are well worth your time. Mt. Vintage is a terrific course and… more »

Fred Funk: offering hope for old and short crossdressers

Send feedback »
All hail the Funk. Fred Funk, who wasn't even supposed to be there, dominates the Skins Game to the shock of pretty much everybody. I think this shows how new technology isn't dominating the game, even on the pro level. Funk was barely longer than Ann… more »

Bart Bryant at Tour Championship -- keeping it in the fairway

Nice to see Bart Bryant win the Tour Championship this past weekend. It just shows to go you you don't need to be King Kong off the tee to win against the best on the PGA Tour. It's like all those teaching pros tell us hackers over and over -- keep it in… more »

Finally -- A PGA Tour playoff

A golf playoff? Does this mean we’re going to see fans in the galleries with painted faces, barbecuing and tailgating in the parking lot? PGA Tour Commissioner Tim Finchem said yesterday the powers that be are putting the finishing touches on a rest… more »

Michelle Wie much better than her sniveling fans

221 feedbacks »
Yes, it’s a shame Michelle Wie’s pro debut had to be spoiled by such an unseemly disqualification. A fourth-place finish in her first pro tournament would have been very impressive. But, even more impressive to me was her reaction to the DQ. True,… more »

Michelle Wie just being a good capitalist

14 feedbacks »
Whether you're a Wie Wacko or a Wie Wannabe, you have to admit she has played the system perfectly to get to where she is -- $10 million richer overnight. She hasn't played it traditionally, just in a perfect, capitalistic way. Would she be $10 riche… more »

Sarasota golf: no longer "God's waiting room"

2 feedbacks »
If you haven't been to Sarasota in the last 10 years, you may not recognize it. The place has really boomed in the last five years. Once part of that area known as "God's waiting room," it's experiencing both growth and an influx of yuppies. The average… more »

Mark Calcavecchia's win at Canadian Open overshadowed by Solheim Cup

1 feedback »
Lost in the crazed madness of the U.S. Solheim Cup team win this past weekend was veteran Mark Calcavecchia’s first win in four years. It was almost but not quite a blast from the past, when the 45-year old won the Canadian Open even though his last tw… more »
