If you’re new to our course, you may want to subscribe to our RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!Our week in St. Andrews continued to get better and better. We were sitting in the Crail clubhouse having lunch and we both said we couldn’t believe how each course, each day just kept getting better. True, warm sunny days had a lot to do with it but it was more than that. The quality of each course and the friendliness of the… Continue Reading

Rory’s Little Change Goes A Long Way

rory db

When players are slumping, and slumping is a relative term, they are searching for that magic fix. Unfortunately in most occasions that “fix” can take months to finally take hold so a player can dig himself out of his slump. Not so for Rory McIlroy. He won the Deutsche Bank Championship today after making a few changes over the weekend. He surged from six shots back of Paul Casey to earn his twelfth PGA Tour win and put a new… Continue Reading

My Scotland Adventure ….Continues

DSC00570

Our time in St. Andrews was marked by sunny days, links golf, bustling streets and a few nights out in a very friendly and popular village. The streets were always busy with tourists, golfers, shoppers and the pleasant folk of the Auld Grey Toon. We visited the ruins of St. Andrews Cathedral and stopped by Old Tom & Young Tom Morris’ graves, spent some time walking along the West Sands, hit the British Golf Museum and found a few spots… Continue Reading

The FedEx Cup Playoffs Work

FECupPlayoffs_Prf_6c_Pos [Converted]

When the PGA Tour decided to revamp its schedule to try and institute their playoff system back in 2007 I wasn’t sold on their reasoning. The Tour had flourished over the last decades (thanks Tiger) and we had months and months of opportunities to watch the greatest golfers in the world. And while this “playoffs” mentality worked for the NFL I was doubting that it would work for golf. We had the best players in the world playing in all… Continue Reading

My Scotland Adventure

DSC00528

I am finally coming back down to earth after my two week trip to Scotland. And I don’t like it. My brother and I had two unbelievable weeks in the home of golf and being back in the real world isn’t cutting it. Frankly…it sucks. But I have figured out Flickr and have started to upload some pics and videos there so I can share our trip with my readers. Click here for my Flickr Pics. We spent a week… Continue Reading

Patrick Reed Loves Playing In the Red, White & Blue

reed shhh

In an instance of perfect timing Golf Digest has Barclays winner Patrick Reed on their September cover with Reed being his usual blunt self in their “My Shot” column with Guy Yocum. Reed clinched his 2016 Ryder Cup spot with Sunday’s win and despite his fifth PGA win he still plays with a large chip on his shoulder. And it might as well be painted red, white and blue. “… when Henrik Stenson and I were all square going into… Continue Reading

Patrick Reed won big today at The Barclays as he overcame a two stroke deficit to win the first leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs.  With the win Reed not only moves into first place in the FedEx Cup standings but he assures himself of a spot on this year’s Ryder Cup Team. Third round leader Rickie Fowler’s luck ran out on the back nine on Bethpage Black.  Fowler had managed 54 holes on the testing layout with just one… Continue Reading

Still Rockin’ in Scotland

castle stuart

I am still on holiday in Scotland (they call vacation holidays over here) and doing all I can to golf it up and contribute to Scotland’s revenue as much as I can one pint at a time.  Life is good and we brought over the heat wave that was choking New York when I left. The Scots are very appreciative that we brought the sun with us: 13 rounds of golf so far, 9 holes in rain.  That’s not Scotland,… Continue Reading

New Course at St. Andrews + Wind = True Links Golf

new course trip

Another day of warm sunshine at St. Andrews.  We are taking advantage of the unusually warm and sunny weather but rumor is next week it’s rain, rain and more rain. We’ll take all the sun we can! Had a wonderful experience on the New Course today as we played a bit of true links golf with a firm, fast course and greens that never hold any approach.  Divot repair tools don’t get much use here.  The strong breeze made it… Continue Reading

Crail Balcomie Links….a Stunningly Beautiful Course

crail beach

My bro and I played the fantastic Crail Balcomie Links on Monday and it exceeded all our expectations.  I can’t imagine a more visually stunning course that Balcomie.  It looked like Pebble Beach without the waves and we lucked out with the weather.  It was bright sun and temps in the high 60’s… we have brought the heat wave in the states over with us. Great course, friendly members, fine weather…life is good in Scotland.
