Thanks for visiting!All the talk heading into the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am was about Jordan Spieth and Jason Day being back on the course together.

Consider this my mid-winter rant. Right now it’s 17 degrees with a windchill of two degrees here in the Hudson Valley and a forecast to get colder through the weekend. Last week’s warm temperatures that allowed a few dedicated golfers to sneak in a winter round is nothing but a memory with no chance of a repeat now. But I keep telling myself all is not lost. I get to watch the PGA Tour on one of the most beautiful… Continue Reading
If you read this website with any regularity you know that I am not just a fan of all the internet websites on golf but also favor the printed media that covers our great sport. Sometimes I wonder why I subscribe to so many golf magazines when I can get most of the same content on the web. But many times the print articles don’t appear on the corresponding website right away or sometimes at all. And that is when… Continue Reading
Most golfers have that bucket list of courses that they would so love to play. A trip to Fife and St. Andrews is always near the top of any true golfer’s list. Just going to The Masters, forget playing Augusta National, is a staple on all our dream lists too. We all fantasize about taking a shot at the island green 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass without splashing one. And lately names like Bandon Dunes, Streamsong and Cabot Links are… Continue Reading
Super Bowl Sunday was shaping up nicely for Rickie Fowler. He had just moved into a two shot lead at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and was about to tee off on the drive-able par four seventeenth hole. The way he has been closing out tournaments lately a two stroke lead with two to play looked like money in the bank. But that’s why they play the game. Fowler”s driver ran through the green into the water behind the green… Continue Reading
Rickie Fowler and Butch Harmon show us how to commit to the short shot over sand.
And the season begins! An unseasonably warm spell in the Hudson Valley this week had all us golf starved hackers chomping at the bit for a few holes of real golf. With zero snow on the ground and temperatures nearing 60 all that was needed was a course to play. And thank god there was a little nine holer just minutes from my house that stays open all winter. As long as there is no snow they’re open and this… Continue Reading
1. I watched a lot of golf this week and one of the strangest things I saw was Jordan Spieth’s fill in caddie. His usual bag man, Mike Greller was home nursing a sore ankle. So his agent, Jay Dansi,the guy who signed him up to play Singapore was pressed into service as his caddie. It was hot, humid and the heat index was over 100. A bit of irony surrounded Dansi as he humped that bag around all week.… Continue Reading
Who doesn’t love Jordan Spieth? The Golden Child has become must watch golf whenever and wherever he tees it up. But Spieth, who in his short but amazing career has displayed a maturity well beyond his years may have fallen victim to his fame. When you win two majors and chase the Grand Slam you become a popular commodity. Spieth was offered millions of dollars in appearance fees to play around the world in non PGA Tour events. And you… Continue Reading
