When you talk to golfers from my generation (boomers), there are plenty of opinions on the best professional player of all time. I wanted to take this further and consider the question, “Who has given back to the modern game the most, Palmer or Woods?” I will define “giving back” by what each player did […]

Restoration, The German and Plenty of Heart

The 2014 U.S. Open is in the books.  When one looks back on the results plenty of conclusions will be made.  “It wasn’t much of a tournament.”, “Blowout.”, “Americans falter.”  Add whatever comments you wish but the real story is that Martin Kaymer played some of the best golf a U.S. Open has ever witnessed.

Not So Elementary, Captain Watson

I was watching the Golf Channel the other morning as I am prone to do when I want to avoid the national news feeds covering the “disaster du jour”. At least with the GC news is a lil’ more upbeat. In recent weeks a balding man in his fifties has joined the telecast. I didn’t […]

The Rest Of The (Erin Hills) Story

  Many of you may remember Paul Harvey, the syndicated storyteller gracing the radio airwaves of yesteryear.

It wasn’t an exciting […]

Palmer A Cheater?

Most golf fans aren’t aware of the events surrounding the 1958 Masters.  Many of them may not have been born.  It involved two rising stars on the PGA Tour, the twelfth hole at Augusta National and a ruling that somewhat resembled Tiger Wood’s proceedings from 2013.  The stories have been written.  Mr. Venturi has passed […]

Kohler Ain’t No Joe — But He Could Be

With the recent announcement of Herb Kohler and Pete Dye bringing another course to the Kohler golf “stables”, Wisconsin will again be the beneficiary of adding to its world class portfolio.  Last fall Mike Keiser announced his intentions to build a new resort south of Wisconsin Rapids with the desire to bring his Bandon Dunes […]

Hell Hath No Fury….

Male readers most likely can complete the remainder of the saying in the title of this article.  All of us have our own battle scars resulting from actions deemed inconsiderate by the opposite sex.  Well this is about to take place again on a “Major” golf stage.  In June the USGA will be contesting it’s […]

The Ultimate Cheater?

Cheating in golf is not often discussed due to the self-policing nature of the sport and the integrity of the players.  Golf is a game of tradition, playing the ball as it lies and invoking penalties on oneself when no one is watching.  The problem is nowadays everyone is watching.  With events being covered from […]
