Tiger Woods spoke to the media today as he returns to play at the Waste Management Open. Woods seemed more relaxed than usual at the microphone and even cracked a joke or two.

It’s their Fitness Issue and indeed Sonders is fit and Golf Digest takes great effort to show just how fit she is. Sonders won a NCAA National Championship while playing at Michigan State and has parlayed her”fitness” into a prime gig on The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive… Continue Reading
by Jeff Skinner As the work at St. Andrews continues so does the debate about the work and the way the whole thing was handled. Unrelenting in his disdain for the changes and the powers that initiated them is Geoff Shackelford. His blog, Geoff Shackelford.com is ground zero for all things St. Andrews and the recent changes going on there.
