Rory not helping Faldo keep his NY Resolution

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailBefore I go any further, a quick Congratulations to K.J. Choi for his win at the Sony Open this past weekend. I really enjoy watching him play. In fact, I’d love to have his swing – it’s so simple and such great tempo – makes golf look almost easy – yeah right!!! 🙂 Now…what I really loved was him beating ... Read More »

Talk about a “slip of the tongue” shank!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailKelly Kelly Kelly…what were you thinking? I know…we all speak out of turn from time to time, but girlfriend…this was a wee bit over the top. Lynching Tiger in the back alley ..hmmm…not good. I often kid the Golf Channel for its “political correctness”. You wouldn’t hear a golf channel personality say that “if Ben Hogan saw Parry’s swing, he’d ... Read More »

Mike Weir leads Mercedes-Benz Championship and teaches us a lesson in managing expectations

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI was just browsing the news to see what was being said about the Mercedes-Benz Championship and Mike Weir’s 1 shot lead after the 3rd round and I read this quote from Mike: “I came in here with not too high expectations”. He didn’t say “low expectations” – he said “not too high expectations”. Interesting…and look how well he is ... Read More »

D-day approaches for Jason Day

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI heard on the TV today while watching the Mercedes Benz Championship that Tiger has announced that he’s going for the grand slam again (Ok…so the last one spanned 2 seasons – who cares). Is he getting those 4 majors out of the way so he can…what…only play one more year after that to beat Jack’s record and retire? Yikes? ... Read More »

Bullets and Boo

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailLOL! What was he thinking? Bullets in his bag? Well, if it was going to happen to someone on the PGA tour, it just had to be Boo Weekley. What a character! I’ll never drive on the I5 again, where there is a store that advertises “Bullets and Beer” without rewriting it in my mind to say, “Bullets and Booze”. ... Read More »

Faldo Plots Perfect Ryder

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHello everyone. Well, it’s that time of year when some look back and others forward. I’m the forward looking type, so I am focused on two things – the Ryder Cup and my golf vacation in the fall. I just got back from 5 days in Palm Springs and played some great courses (which I’ll share in a post this ... Read More »

Harrington targets big bucks in California

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailIt’s nice to see Padraig Harrington take a break from his paternity leave to head to California with yet another accolade under his belt. Yesterday, Padraig was unanimously named by the Irish Golf Writers’ Association as the Professional of the Year, for the 2nd year in a row – not too surprising with the Open and Irish Open wins this ...

Beware of taunting the Tiger or you might end up in a cat fight

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailJust a quick followup to my posting about Jason Day “calling out the Tiger”. It seems to have caused quite the stir in the golf community …or whimper? Hey…cut him some slack. He’s good and he’s ambitious. If you don’t reach for the stars, you’ll never make the moon. Funny to see Nick O’Hern step in to give some “brotherly” ... Read More »

Golf and Xmas – I just found the perfect match!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, tis the season and I bet you are all out there wondering what to buy for that special golfguy or golfgal in your life. A trip to Maui to play a few rounds would be nice, or perhaps tickets to a PGA or LPGA tournament where you can see, and possibly meet, all the stars. Riiiight! Well, I just ... Read More »

Take a look at this leaderboard… I realize that some top names were missing like Tiger, Phil, Padraig and Jim, but hey…these players are still some of the best ... Read More »
