How badly do you want to win, Gary? Not badly enough it would seem…

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailDear fellow Canadians and golf fans everywhere… I have to say I have some serious mixed emotions about Player picking Weir for the President’s Cup, given his performance (or lack thereof) over the last 2 years. Yes, it is in Montreal and it would be very nice to see a Canadian in the field, but do we really believe that ... Read More »

Sergio had a Big Boo Hoo after a big Boo Boo

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, this shocked me when I heard about it, but not so much that Sergio signed an incorrect score card, but that they still score golf championships like this. Trusting your opponent to keep your score seems ludicrous to me. Where did that brain dead idea come from? Sergio is having the best and worst years of his career possibly ... Read More »

I’m no Beckham, says Tiger

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailMaybe not, but Tiger certainly should have been the “poster child” for this year’s PGA in the Tulsa airport. What’s Phil doing plastered on the walls? Interesting that the non-controversial comment to that fiasco was “Somebody didn’t think. They just plastered Phil’s face on the wall.” No…someone thought long and hard about that – and that someone was Callaway Golf. ... Read More »

The Home Run King and I

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailOkay…so this isn’t about golf, but given all the hullabaloo about drug testing in golf, I thought it was worth sharing. And I’m a baseball fan too, so forgive this straying away from the #1 game in the world for just a day – I’ll be back tomorrow gabbing about the Snr Open, Cdn Open, Evian Masters and the Deutsche ...

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

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailWell, 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

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailHello 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 »

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

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailAs 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 »

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 »

16 year old Richard Lee of Vancouver in US Open!

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI just wanted to say a big “good luck” to young Richard Lee, a 16 year old from Vancouver who qualified for the US Open! Can you imagine shooting a 62 at 12 years of age??? I can, but that would be for 9 holes 🙂 Well, Richard, we’ll be following you at Oakmont and wishing you all the best! ... Read More »

The Magnetism of John Daly

FacebookTwitterPinterestLinkedinemailI saw John play the skins game up at Nicklaus North two years ago and he was great. Not only did he wow the crowd with his drives, but he was so talkative and friendly with the audience and other players. I sure hope he comes back from this set back and really starts to perform like his fans all ... Read More »
