Will becoming a parent improve your golf game?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailPerspective…I guess that’s what parenting gives you when it comes to golf. It makes you realize there is more to life than a little white ball (or pink in the case of Paula C). Actually, I think parenting gives perspective on just about everything! It’s cool to hear about players who did better after they had kids. Not that I ... Read More »

A fairway view, if you can duck every so often

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI am always amazed by stories like this. If you buy a house on a fault line, be prepared for eathquake damage. The same is true for golf courses – if you buy a house on a golf course, be prepared for balls to drop into your yard, through your windows or even into your oven (now that was wierd). ...

PGA Gets Closer To Adopting Universal Drug-Testing Policy (New York Sun, 21 Jun 2007, Page 25)

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThis seems like “much to do about nothing” to me. Drug testing for athletes is common all over the world. If golfers want the game to be called a sport and themselves, athletes, then that comes with conditions (whether they are “needed” or not). What’s the big deal? As long as they don’t start saying that an antihistamine is a ... Read More »

I am a golf-aholic

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHello everyone I know you are all talking about the US Open and how Tiger couldn’t buy a birdie to save his life on Sunday, but while you were all sitting in front of your HD TV’s, enjoying the game, I was out in the teeming raining telling myself “I love this game”.
