Rory not helping Faldo keep his NY Resolution

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailBefore I go any further, a quick Congratulations to K.J. Choi for his win at the Sony Open this past weekend. I really enjoy watching him play. In fact, I’d love to have his swing – it’s so simple and such great tempo – makes golf look almost easy – yeah right!!! 🙂 Now…what I really loved was him beating ... Read More »

Oh oh…I’ve been hit by fantasy golf fever!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOh dear…this article certainly hit home today. I just realized that I am not only a golf junkie, I’m a golf fantasy fanatic too! Yikes…I’m in 3 golf fantasy games this week alone and I can see it’s only going to get worse. I have to get a life! I didn’t realize the popularity of fantasy golf until I played ... Read More »

Is there a lynch mob chasing Kelly now?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, yesterday I said I hoped The Golf Channel wouldn’t overreact to Kelly Tilghman’s inadvertent mistake, but it would appear that Rev. Al Sharpton changed their minds. What really saddens me in all of this is Rev. Sharpton not practicing what Christianity preaches – forgiveness. Whatever happened to…”He who is without sin…” How does that end??? But that’s a whole ... Read More »

Talk about a “slip of the tongue” shank!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailKelly Kelly Kelly…what were you thinking? I know…we all speak out of turn from time to time, but girlfriend…this was a wee bit over the top. Lynching Tiger in the back alley ..hmmm…not good. I often kid the Golf Channel for its “political correctness”. You wouldn’t hear a golf channel personality say that “if Ben Hogan saw Parry’s swing, he’d ... Read More »

If anyone can do it, Annika can

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt’s so great to see Annika back in form and back in the fight. If you listened to her last summer, you’d wonder if she had any fight left in her, but now she sounds so determined and so focused, I have no doubt that if she is injury free this year, she will prevail. Annika has delayed wedding plans ... Read More »

Tough to pick a winner this weekend

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWhat a great Sunday close for the Mercedes-Benz Championship in Kapalua Plantation! I was glued to the set as you just didn’t know what was going to happen. Having all these great players in contention made for really exciting golf and the thing I loved about it was that I didn’t care who won. I liked them all. It was ... Read More »

Mike Weir leads Mercedes-Benz Championship and teaches us a lesson in managing expectations

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI was just browsing the news to see what was being said about the Mercedes-Benz Championship and Mike Weir’s 1 shot lead after the 3rd round and I read this quote from Mike: “I came in here with not too high expectations”. He didn’t say “low expectations” – he said “not too high expectations”. Interesting…and look how well he is ... Read More »

D-day approaches for Jason Day

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI heard on the TV today while watching the Mercedes Benz Championship that Tiger has announced that he’s going for the grand slam again (Ok…so the last one spanned 2 seasons – who cares). Is he getting those 4 majors out of the way so he can…what…only play one more year after that to beat Jack’s record and retire? Yikes? ... Read More »

TGW ads have got to go!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailSo…I am sitting here watching the Mercedes Benz Championship and enjoying the Canucks Wier and Ames going head to head on the leaderboard. But then, my enjoyment is continually disrupted by the most disgusting commercials I’ve ever seen and I decided I need to say something. A couple of years ago, used to run commercials which showed addicted golfers ... Read More »

Palm Springs Golf Getaway 2007 – Rancho Mirage

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOur final day in Palm Springs was supposed to be at PGA West, but after Silver Rock, we decided that we would give ourselves a break and play something a little less challenging. So we chose Rancho Mirage. A very old fashioned, semi-private course, it offered a completely different experience from the other courses we played. There were a lot ... Read More »
