Michael Clark improved by 19 shots between round 1 and 2. For those of you reaching for a calculator, that is a bit better than a shot a hole! I know that I might not have a span of 19 shots an entire year, except this year, but in less than 24 hours, it is […]

David Toms hasn’t had a very good year, coming back from wrist surgery. So it’s good to see him near the top of the leaderboard at the Fed Ex St. Jude Classic, where he is the defending champion. He’s 4-under, one stroke back of the lead. What I like about David Toms is that he […]

You know you’re pretty good (and your caddy, too) when you can take off 3 weeks from competitive play, skip the practice round, and then show up at a tournament and fire a 7-under, 65 to lead the tournament. That’s what Annika Sorenstam did at the Corning yesterday. She hadn’t played the course in 9 […]

ESPN.COM had a great article about the long (belly) putter debate which is now brewing on the PGA Tour and at local golf clubs. Personally, I have no issues with those who decide to use a longer putter if they are able to get the ball in the hole faster. Granted, I’ve putted crosshand, standard, […]

Having just returned from a golf-free week at the in-laws, which was preceded by a golf-free week of piled-up work, I am very ready to get back to the great green game. And, wonderfully, the joyous week that is the Memorial Tournament lies ahead. I am lucky enough to live within walking distance of Jack’s […]

I was excited to hear Michelle Wie received an exemption to play the U.S. Open, but then found out it was for the women’s tour. The Open will be played from July 1 – 4 at Donald Ross-designed Orchards Golf Course on the campus of Mount Holyoke College in western Massachusetts. I’ve never played this […]



metal spikes

A couple weeks ago I asked whether the pros can still use metal spikes. Apparently, they can. I just saw Jesper Parnevik using them at the Colonial (as he triple bogeyed a hole). And this memo from the PGA in 2003 says it has a contract with tournament sites to allow their use. So here’s […]
