Ho Ho Ho…It’s Bubba Claus

Tis the season to be jolly and off the course you’ll be hard pressed to find a more “jolly” fellow than Bubba Watson. On the course is another story that could easily be titled “The Bipolar Express.” But that’s another story. It’s Christmas and while most children are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus those that live in the realm of Bubba Watson already had a visit from their holiday icon: Bubba Claus. Yes, Bubba is back at it… Continue Reading

Monty: Rory Better Than Tiger’s Best

GOLF-CHN-WOODS-MCILROY

In his day Colin Montgomerie wasn’t treated too well by American golf fans. They seemed to sense his thin skin and rabbit ears and gave Monty the hardest of times every chance they could. Monty came off as uptight and never found a way to build any relationship with American fans. But this is a new Monty we have seen since he joined the Champions Tour and has spent so much time on the Golf Channel. He’s a kinder, gentler… Continue Reading

Greg Chalmers Tops Adam Scott in Playoff

I was one of those demented fanatics that tuned into the Golf Channel on Saturday evening and into early Sunday morning, to get a look at Adam Scott and the Australian PGA Championship.  Like many I was hoping to see Scotty defend his title and maybe live vicariously through those fans that were getting tanned by the warm Australian sun. After all I’ve been frozen out of playing golf up here in the Northeast and any sun splashed golf, even… Continue Reading

Jack Nicklaus started his second career of designing golf courses long before he stopped playing golf professionally. His Nicklaus Design company has projects in 39 countries. The Golden Bear himself has designed 290 courses and right now they have 45 projects underway in 24 countries. He says China has the most potential for growing golf but also offers big problems.

WTF ? Lance Armstrong Speaks of Honor

lance-armstrong

As I have said before I am still a fan of print media. Grabbing a magazine and heading off to the “library” seems more natural than sliding through apps on my cell phone. But recently I’ve been disappointed by one of my “Go To” Mags…Golf Digest. Their December issue had that self-promoting, entitled, douche bag Johnny Manziel on the cover. Really? King Douche on the cover? Bad…really bad choice if you ask me.  Now the January issue has Rickie Fowler… Continue Reading

Rickie Fowler: To Putt or Not To Putt

sand trap

One of the wonderful aspects of the game of golf is that every round is different. Even on the same course you never play exactly the same round. Fourteen clubs, 6,700 yards, 120 acres and an inconsistent swing all lead to infinite possibilities during any round of golf. And factor into that the mind of the golfer and many of us will try to play the same shot ten different ways.  My Greek Brother is famous for his sand game.… Continue Reading

The pre tournament buzz at the Hero World Challenge was Tiger Woods’ return to competitive golf. After twenty one year old Jordan Spieth showed all the old guys how things are done the buzz about Tiger is the same: we are still waiting for his return to competitive golf. Woods finished tied for last place at his own tournament and a hefty 26 shots behind Spieth. But all was not lost for Woods, believe it or not that his T17… Continue Reading

Jordan Spieth completed his wire to wire victory at the Hero World Challenge just the way he started it, with an impressive 6 under par 66 and the rest of the field looking up at him on the leaderboard.
