Alliss is a dinosaur but it is his candour that faces extinction

Don’t you just love the bluntness of the British media? I have to say that when looking for golf stories, I always head to the UK papers first. One…they actually write their own stories (unlike most North American papers that just take an Associated Press feed and add their own cutsy titles), and Two…they say what they think and stand ...

An oldie…but a goodie!

I am often amazed at the number of North American golfers who don’t watch the European Tour. I find it to be some of the most exciting golf on TV and the players are not only talented, they are entertaining as well. And one of my very favorite “entertainers”, Miguel Angel Jimenez, just proved that golf is ageless. At the ... Read More »

Golfgal Makes LPGA…

…without ever swinging a club! LOL! Sorry for the blatant self-promotion, but I just had to share my good news. As you know, I write a daily (sometimes twice daily) blog for Golf For Women. On Monday I posted an interview with Brittany Lincicome on GFW because she was going to be a guest on the Big Break Ka’anapali on ... Read More »

The LPGA should rename itself “The LorAnnika Tour”

The see-saw winning ways of Lorena/Annika… I just love it don’t you? It’s way better than the Tiger/Phil battle in my opinion. It’s seems more civilized in some ways – less bitchy, which is ironic. I didn’t get to watch the event as we don’t get ESPN 2 on cable up in the Canadian tundra (grrr), but I saw some ... Read More »

A Toast to Annika

For those who have read my blog before, you’ll know that I like to either apologize in limerick or honor someone in same way. It’s my way of bending my knees in print. Today it’s all about honor. Annika is someone who I have admired from the moment I picked up a golf club. I can’t write anything that hasn’t ... Read More »

And the 2008 Player’s Champion is….

TPC Sawgrass! In second place…from Spain…the best golfer in the world who has yet to win a major….every reporter’s favorite punching bag — Sergio Garcia! Now how’s that for a knock em down, beat em up kind of weekend! 🙂 With 6 out of the top 11 golfers missing the cut (notably: Steve Stricker, Geoff Ogilvy, KJ Choi, Vijay Singh, ... Read More »

Big Break Ka’anapali – Ask the Ladies Opportunity

Hi everyone As some of you know, I have a blog on Golf For Women Magazine and I’ve been following Big Break Ka’anapali closely through the eyes and experience of Big Breaker Christina Lecuyer, Last week I had privilege of interviewing Tina Miller, another BB contestant who also offered to share her thoughts on each week’s episodes. So…I’m a busy ... Read More »

Can this Tony tame the Tiger?

Many have lumped Anthony Kim in with the ranks of Rory Sabbitini and Jason Day as “upstarts” who should keep their mouths shut about being (or beating) the number one in the world. Even Tiger himself didn’t hesitate to try and put Kim in his place last year by ridiculing his AK belt buckle. But Kim took it in stride ... Read More »

Cavemen alert – missing link found on links

Cavemen – I thought they were extinct, but I was wrong. At least 2 live in California and golf in Vegas. I just got back from playing 5 days in Las Vegas at 5 different courses. Heaven! Well, it was on some courses. But on others, it was a good walk spoiled. Not because the course was bad….on the contrary…all ... Read More »
