Parkland Course, The Legends, Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Third course to complete The Legends in Myrtle Beach, Parkland, is a Larry Young design. Parkland is a more traditional course than Mooreland and Heathland, the other two courses at The Legends. The course condition of Parkland is excellent, manicured fairways and rough, huge receptive greens and some very deep and penal bunkers. The Parkland is one of my favorite courses. A traditional layout with eighteen different holes directs the player to use every club … 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 →

Stonehenge Golf and Country Club, Richmond, Virginia

Richmond Virginia’s Stonehenge Golf and Country Club, an Ed Ault design, is an interesting course. It has a good variety of challenging golf holes, variety of par 3s, and is very playable for the average golfer if played from the white tees. The par 5s are three shot holes for the average player and the par fours have enough variety in lengths to allow the player to use most of the clubs in the bag. … Continue Reading →

Valspar Championship Update

Jordan Spieth again? Just another young player winning his second PGA tournament. Is this going to be the norm? If so, we might run out of young players before the season ends. Then again, it’s great to see this trend of young quality players contending each week. I know. Some of the veteran players are performing well also. But look at the possible reasons these young guns are beginning to be a threat; competition at … Continue Reading →

Three Reasons Why Tiger Won’t Win Another Major

  Let me first say, I agree Tiger is one of the greatest players to play the game. He is right up there with Jack, Arnie, Tom, Ben, Gary and Lee.  There are many greats but he is near the top. Everyone has said from the beginning, Tiger has also stated it, he will beat Jack’s total Majors won, that being eighteen. This means he would need to win nineteen (obviously) because no one wants … Continue Reading →

Rivers Edge Golf Club, N.C.

  This is a great Arnold Palmer Signature Course. From the first tee shot to the last putt on eighteen, this track is not only enjoyable but very challenging. Don’t be distracted by the beautiful scenery or you might be searching for your ball somewhere in that scenery. I am a firm believer in playing from the set of tees which allows you the most enjoyment, especially when playing the course for the first time. … Continue Reading →

Silverstone Golf Club, NV.

This is a place well worth the thirty minute drive outside of Las Vegas, NV. A Robert Cupp design with three nine hole layouts: Desert, Mountain and Valley. Mostly played by members and locals, definitely a high quality facility and far less expensive than the courses outside the hotels in Vegas. Although the courses are played within a housing community (we played the Desert and Mountain nines) it doesn’t take away from the beauty of … Continue Reading →
