The LPGA should rename itself “The LorAnnika Tour”

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailThe see-saw winning ways of Lorena/Annika… I just love it don’t you? It’s way better than the Tiger/Phil battle in my opinion. It’s seems more civilized in some ways – less bitchy, which is ironic. I didn’t get to watch the event as we don’t get ESPN 2 on cable up in the Canadian tundra (grrr), but I saw some ...

Can this Tony tame the Tiger?

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailMany have lumped Anthony Kim in with the ranks of Rory Sabbitini and Jason Day as “upstarts” who should keep their mouths shut about being (or beating) the number one in the world. Even Tiger himself didn’t hesitate to try and put Kim in his place last year by ridiculing his AK belt buckle. But Kim took it in stride ... Read More »

Golf really is a gentleman’s game

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailYesterday I congratulated Trevor Immelman whole heartedly on his Masters win. What a wonderful display of talent and dedication! I was almost afraid he’d lost it on 16 at the end, but he proved that he is not a quitter and bounced back to finish at 8 under par – 3 shots ahead of 2nd placed, Tiger Woods. But the ...

The Clash of Captains

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemail I am sure you enjoyed the SHO this weekend like I did, watching Johnson Wagner, better known for having two last names than for his golf, won his first PGA tournament and captured a spot in the Masters. It’s great to see a win be so much more than just a trophy and a huge check. Wagner’s post round ... Read More »

Mighty Monty miffed at Masters

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailColin Montgomerie is one of those golfers that you love to pick on because he leaves himself wide open so much of the time. Today is no exception. He’s back in fine form with his lastest trantrum over what he considers unfair practices by the tournament poobahs at the Masters. Monty’s quest for the coveted green jacket was dashed again ...

A new fashion line for golfers – bullet proof vests

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI don’t think Celebrity Chef Paul Prudhomme woke up Tuesday morning thinking he better put on his Kevlar vest to dodge golf balls at the Zurich Classic, but it might have been a good idea in hindsight. Prudhomme was setting up his cooking tent on the practice range at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans this week when he felt ... Read More »

Britney Spears meet John Daly – You two were made for each other!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailGuess who’s playing in New Orleans this week? No…let me rephrase that… Guess who’s scheduled to play at the Zurich Classic in New Orleands this week? Give up? It’s John “I don’t need a coach; I need a woman in my life” Daly. Surprised? Yeah…so was I…Who would even think to offer him a sponsor’s exemption right now? And, get ... Read More »

Tiger, Jordon, Gretzky, Ichiro – Now we know their secret!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOkay…I know I know…this post isn’t really all about golf. But golfguys and golfgals do like other sports too. Me….I am a big Seattle Mariners fan and I love Ichiro. So when I saw this story in the Seattle Times, I just had to share it. Ichiro to me is the Michael Jordan/Wayne Gretzky/Tiger Woods of baseball. There is a ... Read More »

Daly fires caddie – Harmon fires Daly

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI feel like a parent with a problem child. You love them to death, but you just can’t put up with them anymore. You try love in all its flavors, including “tough love”, but nothing works. Some people don’t want to be helped and they certainly don’t want to help themselves. Sometimes you just have to walk away… Such is ... Read More »
