Gary Player & Jack Nicklaus May Be Partying with the Kids

player spring break

Gary Player was as competitive a golfer as there ever was on this planet.  No player ever got so much from such a small package.  He won nine major championship and hundreds of golf tournaments on a dozen different tours. And he’s still a feisty son of a gun. I think he may have been a bit put off by all the attention that Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Smylie Kaufman were getting from their SB2K16 escapades. Well,… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think

1. Golf Digest is once again the target of LPGA fans because this month Paige Spiranac graces their cover. While Spiranac is attempting to make it to the LPGA her game is still a long way off but her popularity far exceeds her game. She is what you would call an “internet sensation” with over 670,000 Instagram followers, most of which are between the ages of 15-30. Now that’s the demographic that Golf Digest and the game itself needs to… Continue Reading

They say youth is wasted on the young. Well that doesn’t apply to Jordan Spieth and his crew of pals which include Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler and Smylie Kaufman. They have spent the last week Tweeting, Snapchatting and Instagraming their fun and frolicking during their “Spring Break” in the Bahamas. We have seen them goofing on each other while playing golf in their bathing suits, popping a few cold ones and generally just having a damn good time. Hey, this… Continue Reading

Scott, currently the seventh ranked golfer in the world would have teamed with world number one Jason Day to form a very impressive Australian team. But Scott, always honest and forthright says competing in the Olympics is just too much during an already jammed summer schedule. He’d rather concentrate on winning another major championship to further his golfing legacy. “My decision has been… Continue Reading

One of the intriguing stories in golf lately is the emergence of part time physicist/artist/golfer Bryson DeChambeau. He who plays all his irons at the same length. He who wears the “Hogan” cap. He who talks of the golf swing in such lingo that he would confuse Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory. Oh, and he who was low am at The Masters (and in the mix through three rounds) and finished T4 at The RBC Heritage. This kid is… Continue Reading

Branden Grace Wins RBC Heritage

It was a tough day for third round leader, Luke Donald at the RBC Heritage. The former world number one could only manage an even par 71 round as everyone around him was shooting under par. Branden Grace was the prime recipient of Donald’s indifferent play as the South African went low with a closing 66 to come from three shots back to give him his first PGA Tour win. Many will remember Grace from last year’s U.S. Open when… Continue Reading

The LPGA is spending the week in paradise as the ladies tee it up in the Lotte Championship at beautiful Ko Olina Golf Club at Oahu, Hawaii. Minjee Lee leads at -10 after a stellar bogey free 66.  American Katie Burnett is two back in second place. Ko Olina is a splendid course on the south western shore of Oahu and the wind has been giving the players fits.  I was lucky enough to play there a few years back… Continue Reading
