Tiger Woods spoke to the media today as he returns to play at the Waste Management Open. Woods seemed more relaxed than usual at the microphone and even cracked a joke or two. Of course his missing tooth at Lindsey Vonn’s ski championship was a hot topic and in explaining he said he was trying to be inconspicuous but he did acknowledge that there aren’t many “brown dudes at ski races.”  He is sticking to his story about a videographer… Continue Reading

1.  The story surrounding Robert Allenby continues to change daily. This we know: he wasn’t kidnapped, he was missing credit cards, and he was found on the street either drugged or drunk a block from a strip club.

My brother and I were reminiscing about watching him as a skinny kid… Continue Reading

For the past seven years Bernhard Langer has dominated the Champions Tour with machine like consistency and marksman like accuracy.  He’s performed like The Terminator on a mission to own the Champions Tour. I can almost hear his thought process, or “software program” if you buy the Terminator analogy: Must make birdies. Must crush competition. Must win! And on most occasions The Berninator does just that, crushes them. But every now and then he misses one…it’s rare but it does… Continue Reading

Team… Continue Reading
