I assume he is getting a free golf, wining and dining. The perks of being "media." Now his task is to get souls like us to play these courses because he writing about it.

Fear is definitely an equalizer in the game of golf.

Facing the most fearful shots in the game using the power of your mind's eye for proper alignment and set up will help you beat the toughest shots in golf without a doubt.

I have bookmarked it and am going to forward it to others that i know will likely be extremely interested in the info. My father is in this industry, he'll love the way you laid out the information, I've sent him your link. I've alos posted a permanent link on my web page for other to come across this. It's tough for anyone to disagree with this, the information is fantastically put together.

In response to: Crumpin-Fox Golf Club in Massachusetts remains a timeless delight

Paul [Visitor]
I've been a regular at the Crump for the past 15 years. However, this past Columbus Day weekend, I was solely disappointed. It is a wonderful layout and always in great condition but on this visit the staff were unfriendly/rude and the round took 6 hours! I feel they are resting on their laurels after getting such high praise and are now close to pricing casual golfers away. While the course deserves positive reviews (challenging, scenic, great condition), it is poor value and now offers poor service. Such a shame !

In response to: A Magic Milestone: Shooting under Par

Scotty B [Visitor]
I think one of the biggest differences between good athletes and great competitors is the way they react to that kind of pressure. The best competitors I know will make birdie on that hole, while the rest of us end up with your double bogey. I think the key for the "rest of us" is to write our score down, but don't add it up until the day is done! My best round ever was a 64 on a par 73 and I had NO IDEA what I was shooting. I was just playing every shot as it came and socializing in between.

I also see it with my mom every time she's having a good round. She stops on the 18th tee, adds up her score and then usually makes a mess of the 18th and comes away frustrated. I just can't convince her to stop adding it up!

You have to admit that it's a great game that can make you choke when nobody else gives a hoot!

Seriously, Vag, it is an amazing feeling, so congratulations. Happened to me once in a club championship, with a birdie on 18. I'm giving local tournament golf a run again this Summer, so might be that I join your club...Keep the birdies dropping.

Miklos Breitner [Visitor]
Do we remember the Monica Lewinsky affair of Bill Clinton? Everybody was shouting and talking about Clinton in those days, but today those very same people are again buddies of Clinton. These women just want to crush money and publicity from Tiger Woods. Those who are judging TW's behavior are hypocrite. At the same time I do not support such behavior made by anyone, man or woman.

Veracity [Visitor]
Mr. Zuckerman, Your article, like so many I have read, begins with Tiger's success and wealth. Suggesting his restraint was overcome by the temptation is not reality based is it? I keep waiting for someone to use their common sense! Doesn't it all boil down to WHY WAS TIGER WOODS AT BARS AND CLUBS? HE'S MARRIED! If he was home with his wife and children instead of bar-hopping he could not have been tempted by these "nubile hotties" as you assert, right? More importantly, the accounts provided by these "hotties" seem to show the women were working, Tiger showed up where these women worked, hand picked and used friends or associates to get the women to join him in his VIP rooms and in two cases, his own HOMES! I hoped someone with GOLF would clarify none of these women (or at least none so far) were hanging out at the clubhouse doors, they weren't working in his home or his business, they were not associated with his industry at all when their paths crossed were they? I have zero understanding WHY these women behaved so shamefully but I am growing so weary of Tiger's success being used to rationalize or excuse his conduct. Didn't Tiger USE his SUCCESS to purposefully troll for sex partners other than his wife instead of using his success and HIS TIME to better his family, his foundation, his career, his industry, his community,... (I could list so many other places he could have been other than trolling in bars/clubs). The only question I see that is valid IF one is determined to use his success is Did success corrupt Tiger Woods? Maybe Tiger Woods is able to hit a tiny ball better than just about anyone right now, and he has obtained great wealth but most of his wealth and notoriety were made by him carefully selling a crafted image/persona that was FAKE. Sadly and scary Tiger Woods may actually have sold the persona to his future wife! Mr. Jasper Parnevik who introduced Elin to her future husband is quoted as saying, "we thought he was a different guy". Feels wrong to me to allow Tiger to stay on that success pedestal, ignore his movements and conduct, and say temptation got the better of him!

Well said Joel, the lime light is a blinding light and even with the best of restraint it is hard to resist the offers that literally fall into your lap daily when you are at the top.

The phrase, "it's lonely at the top" has never rang truer than for Tiger.

It is sad but true that temptation will eventually win out even over the toughest of our so called heros.

Scumbags all of them! It seems that the waitress is tired of living in her one room apartment and craves her fifteen minutes of fame. This situation has happened many times in the past and will happen many times in the future.
