If you’re new to our course, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Here’s a blast from the past. A vintage Jack Nicklaus with his longish hair and sansabelt slacks. If it was good enough for Jack back then it’s still good enough for us now. One basic swing for all the clubs with just a little tweaking in setup. Simple, sure that simple swing won 18 majors. Nothing simple about that.
I am still trying to figure out this whole Tiger Woods/Dan Jenkins war of words. I mean there are plenty of things I get: Dan has no use for Tiger, Dan loves giving him the needle, Dan is old school…really old school. Tiger has no use for Dan, never did in fact Tiger has little use for any writer. He seems to view any attempt by a bona fide journalist to get an interview as an intrusion. His press conferences… Continue Reading
The LPGA finishes the 2014 season this week with a bang at the CME Group Tour Championship. The Race to the CME Globe couldn’t have been scripted any better. The top three players in the world, Inbee Park, Stacy Lewis and Lydia Ko are in a position to have one heck of a week. The three control their own destiny and a win would give them the biggest payoff in the history of women’s golf. The victor will cash a… Continue Reading
One of the joys of spending time on a golf course is being outdoors and enjoying many of Mother Nature’s gifts. Every course, even the most raggedy of dog tracks has at least one nice section where a man can appreciate nature’s beauty. Spend enough time playing golf and you’ll also see encounter many different animals that inhabit the course. After all we are just sharing that beautiful landscape with Mother Nature. Like many golfers, over the years I come… Continue Reading
November is usually the time for the golf season to finally wind down. The PGA Tour goes quiet and the European and LPGA Tours wind up their season ending championships this week. Normally those two tournaments would be the big story in golf, but not this week. Tiger Woods, who usually hogs all the headlines in golf, has done so again. And not with his clubs but with his pen. In a surprising reversal of roles Woods has put down… Continue Reading
It’s been a long time coming for Christina Kim. The last time Kim won on the LPGA was nine years ago at something called the Mitchell Company Tournament of Champions. Heck, plenty of golfers have come and gone in those long nine years and if you listen to the newly crowned Lorena Ochoa Invitational champion Kim will tell you that there’s a big part of her that’s gone and this is the start of her “second act.” An emotional Kim… Continue Reading
Brooks Koepka is a name that we have been hearing for some time now. The 24 year old Florida State grad seemed to be everywhere lately. And maybe that’s because he has been everywhere…at least when it comes to playing golf. Koepka chose the road less travelled and played on the European Tour instead of taking the traditional route to try and play the U.S. PGA Tour. His plan worked. With his win at the Turkish Airlines Open we are… Continue Reading
It was fun this weekend to watch the boys of the PGA and European Tours mix it up in China. The WGC-HSBC Champions boasted a solid field as it is co-sponsored by both tours and with plenty of big names perched atop the leaderboard it made for some thrilling early Sunday morning viewing. Good old boy Bubba Watson was up to his old tricks as he powered, curved and coaxed his ball around the course to the “oohs and ahs”… Continue Reading
We call him the Coolest Guy In Golf. Some call him The Most Interesting Man In Golf. Whatever you call him, Miguel Angel Jimenez is one cool SOB. Check out MAJ working out and hanging out… he’s something else and he never surprises us. After all he is The Coolest Guy In Golf.
I remember watching the NCAA Final last season as the University of Alabama completed its back to back championship run. It was pretty compelling stuff as the young men on both Alabama and Oklahoma State left it all on the course. One of the most interesting aspects of the match was the fact that the former Head Golf Coach at OK ST. was now coaching at Alabama as an assistant. Ryan Lavner of the Golf Channel pens a wonderful piece… Continue Reading
