I’ll be back! says Annika

It was a sad day for Annika and all her fans on Friday when she narrowly missed being one of the semi final group of 16 at the ADT Championship. I felt so bad watching her. She’s been my favorite for many years and a fabulous role model for golfers everywhere – both men and women. It must be difficult ... Read More »

McIlroy too busy for date with Tiger

Wow…someone said NO to Tiger and it no other than the young up and comer….Rory McIlroy. I’m impresed. Here’s a kid with his head on straight and not feeling the pressure to move too fast, too soon. Mr. and Mrs. Wie…take note…Young McIlroy is going to be a star golfer and he’s doing it the right way – not rushing ... Read More »

Punkered for the “new” golfing audience

Boy….do I feel out of touch! Did you know about this magazine called: GolfPunk? It feels like a tabloid with it’s so called “Bunker Babes” section and then adds some serious golf news and interviews with our fave players (mostly from Europe of course). Well, I’m not sure how I feel about this site yet, but I’ll definitely be “checking ... Read More »

Married to Tiger – No thanks.

Not sure how I missed this (see bikini-clad babe below), but did you read that Mrs. Tiger Woods (Elin Nordegren) topped a poll of the sexiest sporting “other halves” on the planet? Another #1 for the World’s Best I guess. She even beat out Posh Beckham who only came 46th. When I saw this article and the one about Tiger ... Read More »

The Cream(er) rises to the top

I found it a sad as I searched through over 500 newspapers to discover that the only story about Paula Creamer “creaming the field” was the same wire story across all the sport pages around the world. Meanwhile, Phil Mickelson’s pathetic play made headlines everywhere. Sigh…such is the state of women’s golf. My golfguy and I love watching the women ... Read More »

Mickelson victory under a cloud after slow-play dispute

If you watched this weekend’s HSBC Champions final, you probably spent the last hour going…”Did you see that!” more than once. A flop shot on the putting service – give me a break. There was no need for that shot, and no one will convince me that it was ‘the only shot’ he could make. It was high risk and, ... Read More »

Sports and Noise – can’t have one without the other

I am one of the first to say “shhhh….” when someone is about to tee off or putt, but after reading this article, I’m starting to think that maybe things have gone a bit too far and golfers need to be more like other athletes and learn to play in noise. Yes, turn the cell phones off and don’t click ... Read More »

Birdie binge gets Creamer into lead

So I hear it’s the end of season (did someone forget to tell Phil Mickelson?), but I have to say I’m enjoying some of the best golf of the “apres golf season”. Watching Paula Creamer birdie 7 holes in a row was amazing. Then seeing the baby walrus, Kevin Stadler take the lead at the HSBC Champions when he almost ... Read More »

Golfer’s Anonymous – HELP!

If anyone would have told me that I had something in common with Alice Cooper, I’d laugh them out of the room, but they would have the last laugh. I am addicted to golf. In fact, it’s so bad, that I think I need to start attending Golfer’s Anonymous meetings to handle the withdrawal of golf due to our winters ... Read More »

Mickelson Wants Golf to be an Olympic Sport

Well, this was nice to see. Lefty agrees with me and obviously all of you :), that golf is a sport and should be recognized as one by the Olympic Committee. It was part of the Olympics in 1900 and 1904, but some idiots decided that all that should change and so 103 years later, we’re still debating an issue ... Read More »
