The Big Easy report

Is there a bright side to losing in the first round at La Costa? Probably not, but at least I get a chance to spend some time working on my game between now and the Ford Championship at Doral. In the past few years this event has always clashed with the ‘Desert Swing’ on the […]

It’s official. It’s no longer the year of the dog, it’s the Year of the Cobra. First it was long-driving JB Holmes, who won the FBR Open (see here). Now, it’s silky smooth Geoff Ogilvy, who won the World Match Play Championship. What do they have in common? They are young and talented, and they […]

I caught the final round of the 2006 Fields Open in Hawaii, won by Meena Lee over Seon Hwa Lee in a playoff. It was an exciting back 9, with many of the talented young guns in contention. Michelle Wie, who was tied momentarily for the lead on the 17th, missed the playoff by 1-stroke, […]

Though she has already made nearly $2 million on tour and had her own reality show, Natalie Gulbis still is yet to win an LPGA event.

Tiger missed a 12-footer on the 18th hole to stay in the match against Chad Campbell. Shocking.



Olympic break: on thin ice

Golf fans, excuse this Olympic break. The Golf Blog has only once before allowed a non-golf related post (on how bad Mary Carillo is), but it turned out to be one of TGB’s most read post ever (here and ranks high on the Google search for Mary Carillo). Carillo’s at the Olympics, but we’re not […]



Tiger delivers "smack down" on Stephen Ames

Stephen Ames foolishly let slip some smack talk before his match against Tiger Woods in the World Match Play Championship. When asked of his chances against Tiger, Ames said with a smile, “Anything can happen … especially where he’s hitting the ball.” Sure, Ames was probably kidding, but Tiger later heard about the comment, and […]
