Dottie choking on her “chokin’ freakin’ dogs.” comment? Appears not…

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHow embarrassing to be caught “on camera” without knowing it, eh? Now all of us have said things in private that were not kind. Let’s face it – we’re human. Is it right? No…but it’s normal. And before we start throwing stones at Dottie for her slip of the tongue, let’s remember the last time we said something we hoped ... Read More »

Solheim Cup brings out the best and worst in people

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, the Internet seems to live forever, doesn’t it? Things that happened years ago are “news” to those who never saw them before. So was the case with the Irish Independent’s story about Catrin Nilsmark’s remarks about Cristie Kerr being a “brat” and Michelle Redman “having no talent”. I posted it yesterday because it was published in yesterday’s paper like ... Read More »

Solheim Cup tarnished by bad sportswomanship

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell well well…isn’t this story interesting – and sad! I guess I have take back what I said yesterday that there would be a lot less bitching at the Solheim Cup than the Tour Championship. I was wrong – but I wish I wasn’t.

Pro Golfers and Callaway raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Did you know that September is National Ovarian Cancer Month? Thanks to The Golf Chick for sharing this campaign on her blog. You can read all about it on her post. I think I need to shop for something Teal. I wish I could have bought one of those teal bags – I just bought a blue Callaway bag ... Read More »

And I thought I was addicted to golf!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailCan you imagine collecting over 5,000 books on golf – books that now have a total value of almost 1/2 million dollars and then giving them away? What a generous (or crazy) man. I love him! And to think he’s from my town – Vancouver. Lucky UBC students having a donation like that. Makes me want to go back to ... Read More »

Mikelson opts out of 3rd Fedex Cup event….AND not feeling too bad about it

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI find it interesting that there is a playoff where players don’t have to play to stay in the running. I think that says something about the way points are calculated perhaps. And Phil pulling out AFTER making those comments about his frustration with Finchem…hmmm….don’t like the looks of that. Phil, did your mother not tell you, “If you have ... Read More »
