Golf Course Architecture Day at The USGA

Hanse's Rio Course

If you’re new to our course, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!I am still recovering from shoulder surgery which has delayed the opening of my golf season for a few weeks. So when I had the opportunity to do something golf related that didn’t involve me taking a divot I took it. This past Saturday I headed down to the campus of the USGA in Far Hills, N.J. for their first Golf Course Architecture… Continue Reading

Furyk had started to doubt himself as he suffered through 100 PGA Tour events without a win. He started the day two shots off the lead and went all out as he knew he needed something special if he was to end his streak that had started right after the biggest win… Continue Reading

From the AP: KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) — Sei Young Kim holed out from 154 yards for eagle to win the LPGA Tour’s Lotte Championship on the first hole of a playoff Saturday with Inbee Park.  “This is probably the second most memorable shot for me,” Kim said through a translator. “In 2013, I won a tournament, which had the biggest prize money on KLPGA. I won that tournament by making a hole-in-one on 17, so that was probably my most… Continue Reading

Golf Is the Game of a Lifetime, Here’s Proof

97 2

They say golf is the game of a lifetime and while many of us come to the game late those that stick with it do so exactly for that reason. For one of the many attributes of playing golf is that we can play it until we end up on the other side of the divots. John Feinstein gives us a profile of Sid Beckwith who has been playing golf for over 80 years and playing it well.   “We… Continue Reading

Paula Creamer Wants the LPGA at Augusta

Paula-Creamer1

Paula Creamer loves Augusta National and The Masters like most of us. Creamer has attended The Masters to watch her male counterparts compete on a few occasions. And she isn’t shy about showing her fondness for Augusta and is pining for the green jackets to host a women’s tournament at Augusta National. But she’ll have to be satisfied with watching the men once a year and getting on the course as a guest.  There won’t be an LPGA event at… Continue Reading

Spieth & McIlroy: Our Next Rivalry?

British Open Golf

In the afterglow of Jordan Spieth’s historic win at The Masters it is easy to get all giddy about what Jordan Spieth can do for golf. We who really watch golf know there is no “next Tiger Woods” just as there was no “next Jack Nicklaus” back in the ‘80’s. The “next one” can’t be christened off of a major win or a great season. The “next one” just evolves. He grows and blossoms after tests, and trials and years… Continue Reading

The Green Jacketed One Percenters of Augusta National may take some heat for being the rich, ruling class of America with little interaction with the masses except for one week a year but one thing we can’t deny about the members of Augusta: they know how to put on a great golf tournament. While many of the members are busy running our country many are totally consumed with putting on the most memorable of majors. This week was no different… Continue Reading

Ten Things I Think…Masters Style

1.  When Bubba Watson won his first Masters he was dubbed an American Folk hero. Jordan Spieth is just a plain old hero. 2.  Wire to wire win, setting Masters records all over the place, green jacket and all the perks that it brings…not bad for a kid that would be graduating from college next month if he hadn’t turned pro. I think Spieth made the right career choice.  3.  Props to Justin Rose for reclaiming his championship form which… Continue Reading
