Previously in this space I had asked the question “Is Donald Trump Good for Golf?”  And at that time, long before he crashed the political party, I gave him his signature sign of approval, a thumbs up (ugh). During a downtime in the golf industry… Continue Reading

The “Hate” for Golf…Well Deserved This Time

lacc club

In my recent challenge to try and get in better shape I have spent hours on the treadmill during poor weather and when the elements permit I’ll hit the trails in my area favored by runners and walkers alike. Of course standard equipment is my phone and earphones as I need some company and emotional support in my ears as I trudge along trying to not to think of the better things I could be doing.

This means war!  Navy veteran and PGA Tour pro Billy Hurley has launched a viscous a attack on Jordan Spieth calling him “a thief, disgusting” and a “one-percenter.” Of course it’s a joke as Hurley pokes fun at his colleague as the two of them vie for votes for chairman of the PGA Tour’s Players Advisory Council.  It has to be one of the funniest golf videos ever. It’s rare for players to take shots at one another in public… Continue Reading

The Golfer’s Journal

tgj

A pleasant surprise appeared in my mail this week, a belated Christmas gift from son number two: The Golfer’s Journal. I wasn’t really aware of such a publication but it’s another creation of the folks at Linksoul, the publisher of The Surfer’s Journal and a host of creative types who love golf for its soul and not its commercial viability. John Ashworth and his crew at Linksoul do things differently and that stays true with The Golfer’s Journal. It’s more… Continue Reading
