But today it just looked like he was going to run away and hide… Continue Reading

Florida here we come! My better half and I spent a brief, but lovely, layover on New Years’ Eve in Metro New York, enjoying holiday libations in the company of my brothers and sisters as we… Continue Reading

The Golden Bear turns 77 today and his plans are to play a little tennis, not golf and chill with the family. Sounds like a fine plan to me.

When Jack was at his best the saying went,’when Nicklaus stood on the tee… Continue Reading
