If golf’s good enough for James Bond…it’s good enough for me

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail I am a huge James Bond fan. But more than that, I’m a huge Sean Connery fan – the greatest James Bond ever IMHO. So when I saw this story in the Daily Telegraph Sport from the UK, I just had to share it. I realize that I can’t add any brilliant commentary to this article, but I thought ... Read More »

Highway 18 – Episode 5: Eye Candy is Dandy!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail Well, we’re at episode 5 of Highway 18 and we’ve yet to see an elimination. I’m pretty happy about that – I’d like to see a close race to the finish and I’ve grown to like all the teams – all for different reasons. It will be tough to watch any of them go home. Tonight we saw the ... Read More »

Highway 18 – Surprise Surprise – 1st strike gets immunity

Can you imagine being 20 minutes ahead of your competition to find out it really didn’t matter? All the pain and exhaustion for nothing, especially when the day before you were awarded ...

Highway 18 – Rob and Charlotte’s Dive and Catch

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell episode 3 and 4 should be called the Rollercoaster 18, not Highway 18 for Rob and Charlotte. They certainly did dodge a pretty big bullet on week 3 and that “big break” helped them breeze through episode 4 to stay on top of the score board with Jay and Peach. I was rather surprised at Ashley Davis’ “Yes!” exclamation ... Read More »

Highway 18 – Jay Joins in on the Jockularity

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt’s been two weeks since I’ve been able to watch any of Highway 18 as I’ve been working hard on my tan in sunny Playa Del Carmen 🙂 Actually, I’ve really missed the show. I get Golf Channel by satellite here, but for some reason, Highway 18 airs 1 week behind the USA and Canada. Oh well, I finally got ... Read More »

Four days in the life of an LPGA volunteer

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHave you ever been behind the ropes for an LPGA or PGA championship? Me neither. But I’ve always wanted to be up close and personal with the best in the world and so someday, my day will come. Until then, I’m going to have to rely on my golfing friends to tell me all about it. This past weekend, I ... Read More »

Highway 18: Rob and Charlotte – Double DNA = Double Trouble

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAs much as I love the PGA, I did miss watching Highway 18 this week on Golf Channel. But the good news is that I was able to take the time to interview 3 more of the contestants on the show and get their thoughts on the first two episodes and what happened behind the cameras. Many of the TV ... Read More »
