So I'm playing golf at the Duran Golf Club in Melbourne, FL., and it's 10:39 a.m. My playing partner and I turn to the southeast and see a ball of fire ascending into the clear, blue sky, a plume of smoke billowing behind. Of course, it's the space shutt… more »

Slowly, very slowly, Ben Crane wins US Bank Championship

If you're a golfer and haven't seen Ben Crane play yet, do yourself a favor -- don't. If you aren't a golfer, do yourself a favor and watch him, either in person at a tournament or on television. It will either amuse and delight you or horrify you and an… more »

LPGA, Michelle Wie, Annika Sorenstam, take a bow -- now sit down

I agree that The Rebel often has his hat on too tight and his cigar too loose, but I agree with him on his LPGA rant. Now, I have nothing against the LPGA. I like watching women's golf, though I like women's tennis better because the skirts are shorter a… more »

Fort Lauderdale: where the girls and golf are

Being a native Floridian, I've been to Fort Lauderdale dozens of times in the past, but not in the last 10-15 years or so. Fort Lauderdale was the scene of the incredibly hokey movie, "Where the Boys Are," but my hazy memories of the place involve road… more »

I understand this will prompt death threats and cause me misery, loss of income and possibly the estrangement of loved ones, but I've never liked Jack Nicklaus. Ever since I covered the Players Championship at Sawgrass years ago and saw him mercilessl… more »

British Open at St. Andrews' Old Course -- revered and, oh yeah, obsolete

22 feedbacks »
So I'm watching the British Open on the telly (see, I speak British) with my buddy Mike Malone from Alabama and he says: "Is that a golf course? Looks like the cow pastures we have back in 'Bama." Reminded me of Sam Snead's quote when he first saw the… more »

Kevin Drum the right man for the job promoting Mississippi golf

Send feedback »
The Rebel has been inhaling too much of his own cigar smoke again. In a recent blog, he blasts Mississippi Golf Coast PR man Kevin Drum for...caring too much. Drum is a good man and a good PR guy. He set up an excellent itinerary for me when I visited… more »

Handicap cards to alleviate slow play? Ridiculous
