There’s only nine days left to The Masters so there isn’t much time left to get those tickets but all hope is not lost. A quick search of eBay, Stub Hub or Cheap Seats will show there are some tickets available, if you’re willing to lay out some serious, serious cash. Monday practice rounds are going for $350 while a Wednesday ticket which includes the Par 3 Contest will cost you $571.99 on eBay. I found a steal for Thursday’s… Continue Reading

Jimmy Walker made it look easy at The Valero Texas Open yesterday. As Jordan Spieth tried to gain some ground, Walker just kept playing solid golf and it gave the hometown winner his fifth win in 18 months, that’s impressive.  Walker has moved to top ten in the world, has blossomed into a weekly contender, leads the FedEx Cup with his two wins but nine out of ten fans couldn’t pick him out of a lineup. As usual, now the… Continue Reading

Watch Phil Mickelson Break an 8 Iron

Someone call the Callaway Rep and fast. Phil the Thrill got a bit of a shock today at the Valero Texas Open. Mickelson was trying to work some magic from a fairway bunker on the 12th hole. Take a look and watch the clubhead of his eight iron break off the shaft and bounce through the bunker. Unfortunately there was no magical save and he made bogey on the hole.  I hope he has a warranty on those clubs.

The folks at Nike aren’t shy about promoting their athletes or their products. They are in the business of selling and it comes with the territory. They also never shy away from pushing it to the edge (see Earl Woods chide Tiger) or trying unconventional methods of advertising. Their latest is a Twitter posting of Rory McIlroy and his commitment to the gym. Rory and the rest of his fellow golfers can thank Tiger for the relatively newfound addition of… Continue Reading

In case you have a life and were not able to watch Jack Nicklaus receive the Congressional Gold Medal yesterday here is the entire ceremony. I, who have no life right now due to rehab from shoulder surgery and snow covered courses sat and watched the live stream. It was almost unbearable listening to gas bag after gas bag read from notes prepared by their staff that probably got the same stories from Wikipedia. I’ll save you some time, fast… Continue Reading

One Man’s Vision, Two Great Courses

streamsong sand

Where does a golf course get its start? It is not a question most of us ask as we drop off our clubs at the bag drop. But for a golf geek like me learning the history of the course is sometimes more enjoyable than playing especially when my slice has come to town. Golf course architects will tell you that the best courses are built by Mother Nature herself. Case in point is The Old Course at St. Andrews.… Continue Reading

Fallon loves golf and last night on The Tonight Show he played a little game called “Pie Golf.” His opponent: Bubba Watson. Yes, world number two, two time and current Masters Champion Bubba Watson brought his green jacket for… Continue Reading
