Tiger Rules, but KJ's Fat Grip Caught Our Attention

1 feedback »
Well, the season drags on and continues to underwhelm, with the most recent victory by Steve Fleish. As he put it, he stumbled a bit, but had a big enough lead that no one could track him down. Good for him, but as you looked at the leaderboard, you ha… more »

When will these guys learn? Don't tick off Tiger Woods! Don't even think you are in the same league, just be glad to take second place money. When Tiger is in full form, all cylinders, smooth take away and transition into his downswing, his shot making i… more »

Michelle Wie ain't no Ali

Some time ago, I wrote a column supporting the choices that Michelle Wie had been making, to play against the men and so forth, but I think the last week has shown, she just doesn't have the heart of a champion. Female athletes develop sooner than men… more »

Wow, what a Saturday at Augusta. Tiger trudges off the course matching his Thursday achievement of bogey's on 17 and 18, and you could feel the steam building up like a nuke reactor ready to blow. Back the range to settle down with this brain trust of… more »

7 feedbacks »
On the 11th hole at Bay Hill, Tiger Woods made a few more bad swings out of the rough, and then mindlessly three putted for a double bogey while VJ moved up on Tiger by 5 and Tiger was done. He limped home with a double and a triple for his highest scor… more »

Oh my God...what am I watching? While the Golf Channel did their best to put a great face on the terrific top 30 players, oh, that is right; there weren't many in the field, the guys playing the Bob Hope (Car Company) Classic...what a mess. And the Son… more »
