Justin Leonard came from 3 shots back to overtake Joe Ogilvie to win the Bob Hope Classic. Here are several interesting factoids: 1. The Hope is the only PGA tournament that is 5 rounds (I believe). Had it been 4 rounds, Joe Ogilvie would have won wire-to-wire. 2. Justin Leonard has switched clubs from Hogan […]

I cannot believe that I am writing this post, but sometimes you need to step off the bandwagon and just be very honest. I remember a few years ago when David Duval won the 1999 Bob Hope Chrysler Classic shooting a beautiful and stunning 59 to win. He was sponsered by Titleist, hid behind is […]



crossing the line

Today, I have to cross the line — over into the tennis world. The reason: I am so peeved by the utterly pathetic and biased commentating of Mary Carillo and Dick Enberg at yesterday’s match at the Australian Open between No. 4 Maria Sharapova and No. 7 Serena Williams. It reminded me of 2 things: […]

Now I know that Lehman is supposed to be a pro golfer, and as a pro golfer should have nerves of steel. But, Tommy Boy needs to say a prayer next time he gets over an 18 incher for $170k. I know I’ve missed many putts in my life during a $1 or $5 game, […]

Tiger’s back…well, sort of. Tiger did not have his “A” game or maybe even “B” game, but grinded out a victory, with a little bit of luck on the last hole. Tiger hit his 2-iron approach so bad, it probably should’ve have ended up in the water. It didn’t, though, because the shot was so […]



sorry, dean

Two days ago I pointed out the stellar play of Dean Wilson from Hawaii. Well, I hope I didn’t jinx him. He mistakenly failed to sign his scorecard after the second round and was DQ’d. He said that was the 1st time that ever happened to him as a pro.



fog delay, tiger good play

For the past two days, fog in the San Diego area has wreaked havoc at the Buick Invitational, causing long delays in the tournament. On Saturday, Tiger Woods only played 6 holes, but he managed to jump into a tie for the lead with Tom Lehman, at -14. The golfers will be going out 7:30 […]
