Lorena Ochoa Content

Might Miss Tour, but Lives Life She Wanted I’m sure that Lorena Ochoa, the great who retired before her 30th birthday, misses the regimen of competition sometimes – but only sometimes, it appears. Most of us should be able to identify with that. We all get that “if only I could do such and such just …

Pitching, Putting, Politics

An Update on Moving the Women’s U.S. Open I thought that we were done with this subject the last time  I commented on it. It’s really only worth one page of commentary, not two, but as things seem to do in an American election year, the story has evolved, at least a bit. The backdrop …

Arnie – From His Army

Arnie Left A Huge Legacy I must admit that as I’ve watched Arnold Palmer’s ceremonial appearances, hosting his own tournament or hitting the first ball at the Masters, I have braced myself over the past few years to lose him.

Canadian Sports & Media Figure Keith Pelley Now Leads European Golf Tour Apparently, the European Golf Tour is losing people and attention to the PGA in the U.S. There’s a lot of money to be had in the western events, and European players want it, often to the detriment of activities back home.

Go Easy on the Ryder Cup

Ryder Cup Wars Nicklaus Goes Against Usual Thinking It’s Ryder Cup time again, and the testosterone is flowing in the streets on both sides of the continent.
