Ten Things I Think

1. Golf Digest is once again the target of LPGA fans because this month Paige Spiranac graces their cover. While Spiranac is attempting to make it to the LPGA her game is still a long way off but her popularity far exceeds her game. She is what you would call an “internet sensation” with over 670,000 Instagram followers, most of which are between the ages of 15-30. Now that’s the demographic that Golf Digest and the game itself needs to… Continue Reading

The afterglow of Jordan Spieth’s U.S. Open win continues as it has been all Spieth all the time everywhere you look. I first caught him on The Golf Channel today and then the buzz got louder when he posted a shot of his Masters Green Jacket lying next to the U.S. Open Trophy on Instagram. Oh it must be nice to be Jordan. CNN Money called him “The Next Endorsement Superstar” and claimed “Even if he doesn’t win the next… Continue Reading

Two Tiger Tales

It has been an entire week since I last posted on Tiger Woods. That has to be some kind of record. So here goes. Everyone has a theory as to what Woods needs to do to get his game back. More practice, less practice, new coach, old coach, play more, play less and my own solution: think less.

10 Things I Think

1.  I am not a fan of playoffs in golf. To me it is anti-climatic. Watching two guys replay eighteen isn’t exciting it’s boring. You would think it would be thrilling since it is match play at that point but it never is. There is too much time to fill and I am sure those television producers feel the same. 2.  Losing two of golf’s greats in a week is tough. Billy Casper and Charlie Sifford both made their mark… Continue Reading
