Canada & U.S. – Olympic Hopefuls

We have all watched the youth movement descend on the game of golf like a tsunami. There’s no way to avoid being impressed with a fourteen or fifteen-year old winning a sanctioned tour event, or rolling in the putt that changes history for the Solheim or Olympic Games. Stars in their late teens and early …

Bahamas – a New Year

Bahamas Golf Surprising Start for New Season I love this part of the year, because in addition to an abiding love for the game of golf, my appetite for it is refreshed and new. With the Northwest snows, I haven’t played for a long time, but can live vicariously through the LPGA as they walk …

New Leaders in Malaysia

Take a look on any given Thursday, and you’ll see a group of LPGA stars take over the top spot as first round leaders, with the occasional appearance of a new kid on the block. Check in on Friday, and some of them might still be there. Do the same on a Saturday, and it …

U.S. Women’s – The Back Nine

Back Nine Crucial Holes for Tomorrow’s Position Several major personalities have found their way into the upper echelons of the U.S. Women’s Open.

LPGA Unpredictable – Good!

LPGA – Who Can Guess From Week to Week? I’m not saying that any round of golf, or any established tour is predictable. It’s far too capricious a sport to predict, and it’s the last thing in the world on which I’d ever gamble. It would be too easy money for the house. That being …

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, …

Can Anyone Stop Ko?

Lydia Ko

Lydia Ko Wins Again in New Zealand I have never been to New Zealand, but it’s on my list of “must sees.” My closest cultural connection to the beautiful green island is that Zena lives there, or if you must, actress Lucy Lawless. The warrior princess, however, has been eclipsed by her younger countrywoman, Lydia …

More Ryder Fall-out

  More Ryder Fall-out, and Stacy in Perfect Position     I usually, and sometimes mistakenly, think of men’s and women’s golf as two distinctly separate identities. However, as each new tid-bit comes out over the shipwreck that is the 2014 American Ryder Cup team and its lamentable showing in Scotland, I’m beginning to see …

Ready for the British Opens? Whose Will be Best?

Stacy Lewis British Open

Women Have More Interesting Lineup This Year in England The women who make up the field of this year’s British Open are right where they want to be. There are any number of people who could win it, but the suspense is keyed in on just a few. A budding rivalry is taking shape, which …
