Ravens Patriots Football

by Jeff Skinner Awards season continues at Links Life Golf but you won’t find these awards on the PGA Tour.  I watched plenty of golf this year and some players are much easier to watch than others.  There are players that are fun to watch, those that will try the impossible no matter what the circumstances.  But there are also those that are difficult to follow and for me those are the, the dawdlers, the deliberators, yes… the dreaded slow… Continue Reading
