When The Curtain Comes Down

  One of the perils of living in Green Bay is not knowing when the golf season will come to an end. I have recorded rounds in each month, even January, since I came to the “Tundra”. Last season was the first time I did not swing a club in November. Caught up with yard […]

Ted Bishop’s Un-Excellent Adventure

Many in the golf world were surprised when PGA President Ted Bishop was relieved of his duties this past Friday. Apparently Mr. Bishop engaged in a he-said/she-said fight on Twitter and FaceBook with Ian Poulter about a few comments Poulter had penned in his new book.   Mr. Poulter (she-said) slammed Nick Faldo for some words […]

Pure Raynor

In the past month I had the opportunity to play two wonderful Seth Raynor courses – Chicago Golf Club and Blue Mound Golf & Country Club. For those who appreciate architecture from earlier days, these two layouts offer incredible examples of classic design.

The fortieth Ryder Cup Matches concluded Sunday much as they were predicted. The Euro’s dominated the contest by capitalizing on the afternoon foursomes from Friday and Saturday to earn an easy 16 ½ — 11 ½ victory.

A Convenient Dismissal

  Coming off a missed cut at the PGA Championship a few weeks ago, Tiger Woods speculated that he would have to reevaluate his health in order to be considered as a Captain’s Pick for the upcoming Ryder Cup. He worked the media as he always does, saying several things but not offering much content. […]

Missing Sounds

When I was a kid (many, many years ago), I couldn’t wait to get up on a summer morning and head to the golf course. We were fortunate our junior program had ample depth so there were always playing partners about. The professional staff encouraged us to play and ran interference when the course got […]

Meeting A New Friend & Remembering A Golf Pioneer

You never know whom you will run into when you hang around a golf course, driving range or country club grill room. Interesting stories abound and sometimes there is an educational lesson accompanying the tale. I recently came upon an interesting fellow that had, what Robbie Burns told me, was “quite the story”. In 1979 […]

Holywood Swingin’

Rory McIlroy, the curly-haired young man from Northern Ireland got his McTriple. Now only a green jacket is needed to complete his career Grand Slam. Somewhat like the previous major championship (Kaymer 65 – 65, McIlroy 66 – 66), this one may have taken a bit longer to decide, but in the end dominant play […]
