There Is a Lack of Trust with Golflink's Golf Course Ratings

6 feedbacks »
I've always felt that there is a huge bias in the golf course rating world. Admittedly great courses like Bethpage, Pebble Beach, Doral and Torrey Pines all deserve their lofty scores. But, how these scores are derived is what I find very suspect. A… more »

Okay, I’m taking bets. My bet is that Michelle Wie, probably the most poorly managed professional female golfer in recent memory, will miss the cut in next week's men’s PGA Tour event. I don’t know who makes decisions for her, but in addition to… more »
