South Korean golfers dominate the LPGA, but that doesn't make them popular

44 feedbacks »
As the naive schoolboy frolicking through the woods that I am, I was caught unawares that so many of our readers would be wounded by my notion that South Korean golfers dominating the LPGA Tour is a, more or less, boring development. Since the degree… more »

Here at the Golfer Supremacy Rankings, winning is the most important thing. Sure, you may have won big titles before, but unless you win TODAY, well, we think you suck. Unless, you happen to be a 16-year-old girl. Then, coming close to winning is more… more »

Here at Narcissism Central, we like to cover a variety of subjects. Most of these subjects, of course, involve either ourselves, or our fellow bloggers and involve golf generally only out of happenstance. So we get Chris Baldwin blogging about Ron Mon… more »

A land without golf carts is not a land of freedom

1 feedback »
It is believed to be Frederick Douglass who first said: "A land where a 92-year-old can't drive a golf cart to a store is a land without freedom." Sure, these words have been invented by the author and then randomly and haphazardly attributed, but… more »

An e-dustrious golfer looks to auction his season to highest bidder

Send feedback »
How often do we find that we would golf much more if not for lack of finances? How much more would we enjoy the game if not for the ridiculously high prices? Well, some guy in Ohio is doing something about it. Looking to sell his body, and perhaps sou… more »

Golfer Supremacy Rankings see the beauty of a high-scoring U.S. Open, and Rihanna

3 feedbacks »
The Golfer Supremacy Rankings accept that not everything can be beautiful. Sadly, some tournaments have a winner who finishes over par. Just like some soccer games finish 0-0. This doesn't take away from the event, however. In fact, some times a lack… more »

Don't let David Duval's 68 at U.S. Open fool you

With Stanley Cup heading to Carolina, now is the time to appreciate Canadians

1 feedback »
The more you learn about Canadians, the more you want to pick them up, spin them around and blow raspberry's on their bellies. Canucks rank right next to four-day-old puppies on the cuteness scale. They are even cuter now, as the Stanley Cup Finals ar… more »

U.S. World Cup performance easily inspires jokes

After watching the U.S. tank like a group of frightened children in a 3-0 loss to the Czech Republic, and Italy destroy Ghana, 2-0 in the World Cup, this thought occurred to me: If LPGA golfer Virada Nirapathpongporn met and married Ghana attacker Ra… more »

Golfer Supremacy Rankings understand reality: The boys are more important than the girls
