Proving again why we selected him as the TGB 2005 Best Golf Writer, Ron Sirak has written this fine article about Dakoda Dowd here. Here’s a flavor: There have been times when the novel use of sponsor’s exemptions have been viewed with cynical eyes, but not this time. Dakoda Dowd was playing for Kelly Jo, […]

Journeyman pro Chris Couch has added intrigue to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by going from worst to first by posting a 64 in his third round on Saturday. After making the cut on the number, this repeat Nationwide Tour winner now has a one-shot lead going into the final round and a great […]

This is a little mind-boggling to me: 13-year-old Dakoda Dowd, playing on a sponsor’s exemption (see here), managed to shoot an impressive 2-over 74, while world No. 1 Annika Sorenstam could only muster an even par round. Way to go, Dakoda! Hard to believe this teen phenom is 3 years younger than Michelle Wie. Boy, […]

Dakoda Dowd is a promising 13-year-old golfer, whose mom is suffering from terminal cancer. Ginn Clubs & Resorts heard about the family’s story and extended a sponsor’s exemption to Dakoda for this week’s inaugural tournament, so her mom can see her play in an LPGA event. Of course, Ginn has received great press for the […]

Hey Everyone. PP here. Still home, still bored and itching to get back on the road. Headed to Daly’s 40th birthday deal tomorrow and then to the Wachovia straight from there.
