For die hard golf fans it was one heck of a weekend. If you were willing to do a little overnight and early morning viewing there was some exciting golf to watch. And if you could pull yourself away from NFL Sunday the ladies of the LPGA provided another thrilling finish to their dream season. I was one of the few, the proud, the crazies that had the Golf Channel on for what seemed like 48 straight hours.  Like many… Continue Reading

The Roots of Tiger’s Battle with the Media

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

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
