Big Break Atlantis 5: Night Night Natalia

This is the worst part of doing these weekly interviews – saying goodbye to a very special Big Breaker. Natalia has been very gracious over the past 5 weeks, taking time out of her busy schedule to share her thoughts on each show and give us a behind-the-scenes look into the show. It’s sad knowing I won’t be watching her compete next week.  ... Read More »

Big Break Atlantis 4: Adios to Aubrey

Adios to Aubrey While watching the Big Break this week I was thinking about how the team play aspect of the show was actually helping those who were weak, while hurting those who were strong.   The speed golf immunity challenge was fun to watch, but did it really separate the wheat from the chaff?  I don’t think so. And I ... Read More »

Pops and Sunshine Heading for the Big Screen!

If you know anything about women’s professional golf, you will know Dave Andrews.  Former TV news reporter and author of Pops and Sunshine, Dave is a huge supporter of young golf gals looking for their break into the big leagues of the LPGA. If he’s not writing about them to boost their visibility with sponsors, he’s lugging their clubs around ... Read More »

Big Break Atlantis 3: Two Inches too Far for Zakiya

Another “interesting” turn of events on Big Break Atlantis this week.  We saw some good shots, some bad shots and some pretty darn ugly shots, but some of the worst shots (e.g. Gloriana’s wasted shots on the first immunity challenge) were hit by golfers who ended up safe, and those who played some great shots (e.g. Zakiya’s bunker shot to ...

Big Break Atlantis 2: No Shame for Shannon

Week two of Big Break Atlantis was sure full of suprises, eh?  Imagine being one those 3 rejected golfgals, broken hearted because no one picked them for their team, only to have the world’s #1, Yani Tseng come in to save the day! Imagine being on top of the world because you were one of the chosen few who made a team, only to have ... Read More »

The new 15th club in my golf bag is…

Yoga.  Never been a big fan of it.  Tried it a few times when I was much younger and discovered that what looks really easy, is actually hard.  And I fell over a lot! Give me some free weights, elastics and a treadmill and I’m fine.  Putting me in a room with a bunch of tight young bodies sweating for ... Read More »

Big Break Atlantis 1: Where 75 yards feels like 250

It’s been almost a year since my last Big Break Indian Wells interview with champion David Byrne and the always entertaining Shank and Carl.  I sadly had to miss BB Ireland due to other commitments, but that only makes this new Big Break Atlantis that much more exciting for me. As usual the stakes are high with the champion receiving an exception ... Read More »

Get in the Zone with Golf Sense

It always amazed me that the greatest athletes in the world like Michael Jordan and Wayne Gretzky find golf difficult.  They have to run and throw, or skate and shoot while balls and pucks are flying at lightening speeds, and yet they find hitting a little white stationary ball hard. But then I read  Roy Palmer’s book, Golf Sense, and ... Read More »

Big Sky Golf Getaway with Sandra Post and Ginny Golding

Every year I get away with some wonderful golfgals who love the game almost as much as I do.  This year is no exception and I’m heading to the Okanagan in May with 20+ ladies of the links to play some of the best courses BC has to offer, including Predator Ridge’s new Ridge Course which was named Best new ...

Tiger, it’s time to take a lesson from Yani’s playbook

With the first two majors behind us now (Kraft Nabisco and The Masters), the golf season has finally arrived in the great white north.  Did it take longer this year, or is it just me?  I am usually on my local course by February, but this year, it was April before I was able to grip it and flip it (ripping ...
