Cheaters Never Prosper…Except in Amateur Golf

Golf spectators around the world watch as Tour players, men and women, notify their competitors (or opponents in match play) if they violate one of the 34 Rules of Golf. The player will even call over an official to announce a breach of the sacred rules. Will you see that in your local amateur golf competition? Not a chance. Well, maybe a chance but a small one at best. Why is one of the world’s … Continue Reading →

TIGER IS BACK ON TRACK TO WIN AGAIN!

How many times have we heard that in the last six months? Every time he hits a shot or two in the fairway; to be more specific his own fairway, the media goes wild. “He’s back. Yes indee dee Tiger is back!” I believe what they really mean to say is “Tiger’s back. He’s back on track to miss another cut and take a spot away from another player who remembers how to chip and … Continue Reading →

Tiger: “One is the Loneliest Number”

I thought watching Tiger Woods chili dip a half a dozen times was bad. Then watching him miss fairways by 100 yards or sculling bunker shots across the green was getting to be the norm. It was surprising to see him make the cut at the Memorial this past week, considering how he was hitting the ball. But then came Saturday at the Memorial. Tiger Woods shoots 85. That’s right, 85. Most golfers watching that … Continue Reading →

Tiger Woods to Possibly Play in the Symetra Tour’s Firekeepers Casino Hotel Championship June 5-7.

Rumor has it Tiger Woods may join the ladies on the Symetra Tour at the Firekeepers Casino Hotel Championship. It appears Tiger was overheard saying, (from an unnamed source) “I can use the practice to get ready for the upcoming Majors. Hopefully I can have a top twenty finish to be invited back next year.” The former Masters Champ has been struggling with his game recently and this event might be the place to regain … Continue Reading →

45 Golf Phrases and Stupid Questions I’m Tired of Hearing

“You Da Man!” Doesn’t get much worse than this. How did that not go in? Want me to begin the list of reasons? Thought I had that. No one else did. Another one lipped out. Yea. Yea. Clean that up and let’s move on. That should have gone in. If it should have it would have. Must have hit that on the toe. Again? Never up never in. Brilliant! How did I leave that short? … Continue Reading →

Tiger Woods and Lindsey Vonn Breaking Up

I know. I know. This break-up was last week but I have been an emotional wreck since the news broke. My sleep pattern hasn’t been this bad since Phil Mickelson finished second at the U.S. Open in 2013 for the sixth time! How can the world continue with America’s Power Couple no longer a couple? Are we all destined for failure at love? If they can’t make it, who can? Tiger has a very demanding … Continue Reading →

83 Reasons You May Be A Bad Golfer

It’s possible a number of these reasons pertain to all of us at some time or another. The problem rears its ugly head when most of these identify you on a regular basis. I stopped the list at 83 but we all know there are many more reasons you may be a bad golfer. You don’t take lessons. Unless you’re Bubba Watson, call a Pro. You don’t know who Bubba Watson is. Think pink. You always … Continue Reading →

5 Reasons It’s Fun to Play with Chops

I think we can all agree. It’s fun playing with chops. Although most players complain about it, we all have some good laughs after the round. Not in front of the chop, heavens no! Golf etiquette somewhere in the book states, ‘get frustrated all you want while playing but hold the laughter until after the show. And by all means wait until the chop has left the building.’ Now, many of you may be asking, … Continue Reading →

4 Reasons Hackers Give On Course Lessons

We have all played with hackers. Shoot! Some of us are hackers! For the sake of arguing, let’s say we’re not the hackers (although for some that may be tough). Hacker friends are different than hacker strangers. Hacker friends usually just agree with what you claim you did on a particular shot. “I stood right up on that one.” “Yeah, you just came out of that shot.” It doesn’t matter what you claim, the hacker … Continue Reading →
