The Game of Golf – links poetry at its best

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailTime for more levity…came across the poem on the Fred and Cathy radio blog on Clear FM. Not sure if I have the author right, but I think it is from Tom Galloway. Anyway…it’s so perfect for those who love golf! THE GAME OF GOLF In my hand I hold a ball….white and dimpled, rather small….Oh , how bland it ... Read More »

Hitting the Grass Ceiling

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailFor all women who still feel naked on the first tee…this article is for you. Remember the first time you had to get up in front of an audience and make a presentation or a speech? I do….my knees were shaking and there was a huge frog in my throat. That was many years ago and I still see the ... Read More »

How badly do you want to win, Gary? Not badly enough it would seem…

I wonder if “Fore Inventors Only” have seen this. I would love to give it a try. My 7 iron would be the perfect club to start…then my driver. Of course, I may ... Read More »

I’m no Beckham, says Tiger

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailMaybe not, but Tiger certainly should have been the “poster child” for this year’s PGA in the Tulsa airport. What’s Phil doing plastered on the walls? Interesting that the non-controversial comment to that fiasco was “Somebody didn’t think. They just plastered Phil’s face on the wall.” No…someone thought long and hard about that – and that someone was Callaway Golf. ... Read More »

No Dogs. No Women

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAs a woman who has “grown up in a man’s world” in the business of high technology, I am pretty used to getting treated with respect and equally among my peers (with a few exceptions that don’t deserve to be mentioned). So, I was quite amazed by all the excitement of the LPGA playing at St Andrews. One…I didn’t know ... Read More »
