Happy Gilmore is back and taking on his old nemesis again. No, it’s not Shooter McGavin it’s Bob Barker who once again has a problem with Gilmore and his attitude.

The two reunited for a rematch to help raise some money for autism at Comedy Central’s telethon, Night of Too Many Stars. As good as the original bout was this one may… Continue Reading

10 Things I Think

1.  All right, I can’t take it anymore. That Omega watch commercial with Rory McIlroy has pushed me to the edge. Is it too much to ask for a different song or something from the Omega people? I’ve heard that so much I want to jump off one of those Dubai skyscrapers.  2.  The Monday finish of the Honda Classic was the most exciting golf of the tournament. The weather certainly fouled up the weekend and the Monday golf while… Continue Reading

Teaching Pro Takes a Shot at Tiger Woods

WGC - Bridgestone Invitational - Preview Day 3

Over the weekend a former PGA player let loose on Tiger Woods claiming Woods was going to “surpass Lance Armstrong in infamy.” I listened to the radio broadcast where Dan Olsen (whoever that is) told the host that Tiger was really serving a suspension from the PGA Tour and that Woods had also been playing a ball that isn’t approved for play.

Padraig Harrington began the restart at today’s Honda Classic at two under par, five shots off the lead and seemingly out of contention.

But that’s why they play the game and an amazing string of four straight birdies from 11-14 brought the three time major champion right into the mix. Of course Paddy doesn’t like to do things the easy way. He splashed his… Continue Reading

The Lydia Ko legend continues to grow. Is it possible to be a legend at seventeen? If so no one can better claim legend status than the diminutive Ko who won again this past weekend.

She also won here in style, setting a course record in the third round with an historic 61. Critics may claim… Continue Reading

This is the kind of finish the folks at The Honda Classic had hoped for. No, not a Monday morning closeout, but the exciting shootout that is about to take place.

This is a packed leaderboard and thanks to what may be the worst shot of Ian Poulter’s career, the Honda Classic has boiled down to a Monday Morning Shootout. There’s plenty… Continue Reading
