My New 15th Club

In the past 7 years I can’t count the number of times I’ve been asked to promote a golf product, book, course or service.  On average I bet I get 3 or 4 requests a day. My stock answer every time is this: “I only promote golf products I have used and like. I’d be very pleased to review your ... Read More »

Team Rice Wins Big Break NFL Puerto Rico!

So…what did you think of the finale of Big Break NFL? I had a little trouble watching the show given how much I like both Brian and Emily.   I hated seeing Team Doleman fight so hard every week, only to watch them walk away empty handed, with no second chances. Brian, Shannon and Chris dominated the series until the ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 10: The Dual at Dorado

WOW! What a fantastic semi-final match in Big Break NFL! So often one hears from viewers that Big Break is not “real golf”, but last night’s episode made many eat their words.  The duel between Isaac and Mallory was, as Jerry Rice said, “One of the best exhibitions of golf I’ve seen in a long time.” There were no losers ...

Big Break NFL 9: And then there were three…

If you had told me at the beginning of this series that Team Rypien would be taken down by Team Brown, I wouldn’t have believed you. Given James’ week-after-week consistency and Will’s “box of chocolates” performance to date, I probably would have laughed and placed a bet right then and there against you. But golf is a fickle game.  One ... Read More »

To Give or Not to Give

That is the question I’ve been pondering ever since I read a post from the guys at Your Golf Travel last month on the the subject of Gimmies in Golf. It sparked quite a bit of commentary on their Facebook Page and I was rather surprised at how many golfers were adamant that every putt should be holed out. I ... Read More »

Check them out below to see what he thought of ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 6: The Infamous Doleman Double

On Big Break NFL last night, we saw some good shots, some bad shots and some really ugly shots… The Good – Shannon’s 7 point score from 125 yards; too bad she wasn’t “good enough” in the eyes of her team leader to own a double The Bad – Al’s attempts at up and down.  It just was NOT his ...

Fore Our Troops

Uncle Billy’s GraveCommonwealth War Graves, Artolsheim France As an army brat (a badge of honor I wear proudly), I have a  huge respect for our military and for those brave soldiers who risk their lives to protect us. My grandfather served in WW 1. My uncle was shot down and killed in WW 2 before the age of 20. My ... Read More »

Big Break NFL 5 – Unnecessary Roughness

Drama took center stage at this week’s Big Break NFL with the Doleman team once again showcasing the dark side of its creative differences. Chris obviously thinks Brian should be singing soprano even though it’s Brian coming through in the crunch, not Chris.  Something’s gotta go on that team, and sadly it seems like the leader of Team Doleman wants ...
