Who will win The Open? The man who would be king?

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’d love to see “The Big Easy” pull this out of the bag. He is by far my favorite player, not because I think he is the best – he’s just epitimizes the sport to me. My second choice is Monty, because he really deserves a major this year. Even with his temper, ... Read More »

New HSBC Survey Finds Tiger Woods, Michael Jordan, Mia Hamm and Jennie Finch Top Sports Role Models for Kids

Hello everyone.I’ve been in communication with the HSBC folks about the upcoming Women’s Match Play championships (and Julieta’s blog) and they sent me this Press Release about a new study on the effects of sports on successful childhood development. The survey was conducted online among men and women in the United States during May and June 2007 among a sample ... Read More »

Sometimes it takes a good read to rediscover your game

I love to read and am always looking for great books, sites and magazines – whether they be for work or for entertainment. When I saw this article, I thought it would be good to share some recommended golf books with you from the Economic Times in India. I am assuming many of you don’t subscribe to that paper 🙂 ...

Baseball players dilemma…To golf or not to golf…

An interesting debate…should baseball players stay away from golf? Will it hurt their batting swing? It seems a bit ridiculous to me, but then again, I don’t play baseball – although it is my favorite sport (after golf of course). Ichiro is my hero and of course, that means the Seattle Mariners are my favorite team. I was out at ... Read More »

Stevie leaving Tiger??? Say it isn’t so!!!

As much as I can understand the desire to “retire” to New Zealand, it will be such a shame to see someone new on Tiger’s bag. I don’t know about you, but I think Williams is a huge part of Tiger’s game and he’s my personal favorite caddie on any tour (well, maybe a tie with Henrick’s Fanny Sunneson :)). ... Read More »

Golf and Road Rage – a sad story…

Check out this short article below… This jerk is NO GOLFER! His behavior is despicable and if I were the judge, I would ban him from golf for a year (or more!) as part of his punishment and I think a $5,000 fine is ridiculously low – he could have done some serious damage and could have caused a major ...

Give the ladieswear at least two-thirds of the golf shop floor

I can’t say I am impressed with the outfits displayed in this story (I really hate peddle pushers/pants that end at the calf), but I am impressed by one thing. This couple has made a success of their golf shop because of careful selection of products and their “conscientious decision to give the ladieswear at least two-thirds of the shop ... Read More »

Sorenstam: No Word From Wie (do we really care?)

It will be a very interesting week at the Open…will the media follow Annika and Michelle around to see if they speak to each other? I sure hope not…this is getting silly. I want to watch what’s really interesting and not be bothered by all the negativity of past transgressions… I want to watch… Lorena…under pressure to validate her #1 ... Read More »

Will becoming a parent improve your golf game?

Perspective…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 »
