If you have nothing good to say….say nothing

Well, this story was certainly a surprise to me when I heard about it. I always liked Ames, but if this report is true, it sounds like he is a bit of a whiner. Funny how those who played well said the course was fine and those who played poorly didn’t like it. Sure, Furyk may be diplomatic about these ... Read More »

The Home Run King and I

Okay…so this isn’t about golf, but given all the hullabaloo about drug testing in golf, I thought it was worth sharing. And I’m a baseball fan too, so forgive this straying away from the #1 game in the world for just a day – I’ll be back tomorrow gabbing about the Snr Open, Cdn Open, Evian Masters and the Deutsche ...

Women take note…Golf is NOT a 4 letter word!

Attention all women! Golf is not a four letter word! I can’t say that golf is driving my career, but it certainly is adding value to my consulting business AND my social life. I have met the most amazing people playing golf who have now become part of my network and my social circle – women and men – on ... Read More »

Golf at its best!

Wow…what a weekend, eh? It was a tough call whether to play or to watch tv this weekend, but for those of us who are addicts…we always find a way to do both 🙂 Up at 5 AM PST to see the Open kick off the day…listen to it on the radio to the golf course (now that was a ... Read More »

Drugs in Golf – Surprised? I don’t think so….

Well…I wonder how planned this announcement of Player’s was OR was he caught at a bad time by the press? I have no doubt there are some golfers who are “getting help” and I do think that drug testing is inevitable. In fact…let’s just do it and get on with the game guys! Enough already! Actually I bet Gary believes ... Read More »

Who will win The Open? The man who would be king?

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see “The Big Easy” pull this out of the bag. He is by far my favorite player, not because I think he is the best – he’s just epitimizes the sport to me. My second choice is Monty, because he really deserves a major this year. Even with his temper, ... Read More »

New HSBC Survey Finds Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm and Jennie Finch Top Sports Role Models for Kids

Hello everyone.I’ve been in communication with the HSBC folks about the upcoming Women’s Match Play championships (and Julieta’s blog) and they sent me this Press Release about a new study on the effects of sports on successful childhood development. The survey was conducted online among men and women in the United States during May and June 2007 among a sample ... Read More »

Sometimes it takes a good read to rediscover your game

I love to read and am always looking for great books, sites and magazines – whether they be for work or for entertainment. When I saw this article, I thought it would be good to share some recommended golf books with you from the Economic Times in India. I am assuming many of you don’t subscribe to that paper 🙂 ...

Baseball players dilemma…To golf or not to golf…

An interesting debate…should baseball players stay away from golf? Will it hurt their batting swing? It seems a bit ridiculous to me, but then again, I don’t play baseball – although it is my favorite sport (after golf of course). Ichiro is my hero and of course, that means the Seattle Mariners are my favorite team. I was out at ... Read More »
