FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHow cute is this? Monty’s marrying a woman who’s a virgin when it comes to golf. From handles to grips and sticks to shafts, she’s come a long way, he says, but still doesn’t really know or care about the sport. Given Colin’s obsession with golf (which killed his first marriage), it’s kind of strange he’d pick a bride who ... Read More »

When golfers ruin golf

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI should have blogged this 2 weeks ago when I probably played with the most annoying golfer ever. I kid you not when I say that a very very nice man, who really could hit a ball, thought he was playing the PGA on every shot. I have never seen a pre-shot routine that took so long – on every ...

Mandated golf carts – A good walk spoiled

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailSounds like a step backwards in the “sport” of golf to me! How ridiculous to mandate carts just to get more people on the course. And they try to say that it’s “not for the money – it’s so more people can golf”. Sure…more people…more revenue for the golf course…more people with mandated carts which aren’t free…more revenue. Do they ... Read More »

Tiger-less playoffs are NOT toothless

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHi Hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was on the golf course, as usual, playing okay in the rain and terribly in the sunshine – go figure! I seem to be a foul-weather golfer – which is good since I live in an area where rain is “the new sunshine”. I am sharing this article because it made ... Read More »

Fedex Cup – a joke or just sad tale?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, I listened to it last night on the 19th hole on the Golf Channel and it’s all over the news this week. The Fedex Cup isn’t all it was cracked up to be – in fact, the cup is more than a little chipped. I did really like the advertisements on TV – Fedex put a lot of work ... Read More »

Caddyshack Bill arrested over ‘drunken’ golf cart spin

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOh Billy…looks like you were driving “over par” in Sweden. Hmmm…I guess we’ll have to check back in 2 weeks when the blood tests come back. I’m trying to figure out why you were out in regular traffic in a golf cart anyway? No taxis available at the hotel? That behavior in itself is a bit disconcerting for us fans, ... Read More »

Wie way or the highway

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWie aren’t surprised by this are Wie? Another caddie bites the dust or rather…heads to greener pastures – where he’ll get to see more “greens” because his player will be making a “wie” bit more cuts. Sigh…Sorry Michelle… Have you ever thought about running away from home? Golfgal Wie way or the highwayIrish Independent22 Aug 2007IN what could possibly be ... Read More »

Wanted: Arrogant upstart to catch the Tiger by the tail

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAlthough I don’t consider Tiger’s dominance of golf “boring”, I do appreciate the sentiment in this article.   I would love to see Tiger face stiffer competition, especially from my faves like Ernie.   But he certainly can’t be called an “upstart”, whereas Sergio can.  Yes, besides Monty (who I love to watch too – and hope will win a ...

A new twist on a “hole in one”

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI was reading my friend, Business Golf’s “Guy’s Rules” post and felt that I just had to post a “reBUTTal”. Ha ha…Okay…this post isn’t really about golf, but as you will see if you read to the end…its a perfect “hole in one”!

Even Ernie can’t hold back the superlatives when it comes to Tiger

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHa ha…even the mild mannered Ernie couldn’t hold back at the PGA. “__ck me!” from the Big Easy seemed so out of character – especially on the air! I didn’t realize this happened until I read this story in the Emirates Today. And I just loved Feherty’s comment… To quote Feherty, when Tiger hit an impossible shot out of the ... Read More »
