Comparing Lydia Ko

Lydia Ko Not Quite Like Anyone Else All right, so Super-Kid did it again. She’s just turned 18, and won the Evian Championship going away. She did it with rounds of 69 – 69 – 67 – 63. Even without the big finish, in which she didn’t miss any greens in most peoples’ memories, barely …

No Ko at Solheim!

Ko Can’t Play Solheim – She’s Really Canadian We all might as well start telling it like it is, and Lydia Ko might as well fess up and stop with the deception. The New Zealander thing is pure camouflage – she’s Canadian, and everyone knows it. I wouldn’t be surprised if her real name isn’t …

Twilight Zone on Tour?

Twilight Zone at Wyndham Tour Stop Tiger Leads, Henderson Still There? Does anyone remember Rod Serling’s Twilight Zone? Well, the PGA is revisiting the idea this week at the Wyndham Championship.

Open Finale Set for Drama

Women’s Open Off and Running on Unusual Day The Women’s British Open will have to go a little ways to match the quirkiness and unpredictable turns of events that the men’s version offered, but they’ve made a good start. In terms of golf and predicting a winner, don’t even bother with it until sometime around …

Number One in Arkansas

Much at Stake at the Arkansas Walmart If, by chance, you are not a fan of Inbee Park, you might be in for a long, long year. She was already doing well, then I read this morning that she has “found” her swing. If I played like that, I’d want to keep it lost, but …

Golf Too Young To Die

A Plethora of Young Golf Stars Youth Movement Alive and Well Amidst a flurry of phrases that I swore never to use, such as “Back in my day” and “When I was Your Age,” I worried when people began to suggest that golf was on the wane, and might disappear from the pantheon of recreation …

Golf Addiction?

Addiction Or Just Good Clean Fun? The 2015 Masters is over, and as usual, it was a heart-thumping event – that is, if you’re into that sort of thing. I am, but I often wonder, when meeting people who just don’t see the attraction in golf, what it is that’s missing. What aren’t they getting …

Dewi Claire Schreefel

Dutch Golfer in Contention at JTBC I’m always on the lookout for countries that are just getting into the game of golf, countries that are building new courses, opening new academies, and hosting tournaments from the major tours. It has been fun to watch as China, Taiwan, and Thailand become powerful entities in recent years, …

Downton Abbey and the PGA

PGA Similarities in Place to Downton Abbey In a contradiction of old and worn out stereotypes, the women of the LPGA are beginning their season, as they did the last one, focused on competitive golf, without a lot of side entertainment. They’re not boohooing over literal or figurative hangnails, mental breakdowns, team captain crises, or …
