Daly, Willet – How Things Change

Daly and Willett – How the Mighty Have Fallen, and the Fallen are Again Mighty I’ve followed John Daly for so long that I’m surprised that either one of us is still around.  It’s been wild, colorful, outrageous, absurd, incredible, and entirely unpredictable. And through all of it, something in me has always sort of …

Rethinking Garcia

Finally a Major for Garcia There are so many storylines to Sergio Garcia and his win at last  week’s Masters that it’s difficult to know where to begin. To start with, I suppose, I’ll admit that I’ve just never liked him, and suspect that a fair number of people don’t either.. On the other hand, …

Masters Nostalgia Still Going

The Masters Most Magical of the Majors I wonder how much nostalgia I could tolerate in one day, because today has pushed it to the limit.

Masters – Langer Still Here

Perhaps I can’t go out and play 36 before or after a day watching the Masters, but with spring finally bursting forth in Washington state, I finally took my cramped, stiff, and under-used old body out to the driving range for the first time this season. I did a little more stretching than usual, but …

Masters Eras Roll By

I read in the news this week that golfer Esteban Toledo, who has won on the tour, is going to this year’s Masters. He’s not going as a player, but as a caddie for another pro. My first thought was, “Where did it all go? It all ran by so fast that I barely saw …

Masters for Women? When?

LPGA Masters at Augusta? Whan Tries, But No Deal It’s that time again. Time again for the gorgeous fairways, greens, creeks and bridges of Augusta, golf candy for the eye, without a doubt. From childhood on, the Masters has been my favorite of the four majors. The field was comprised of the best from a …

Grand Slam Fever

Here We Go Again – Another Grand Slam?   The golf year has reached its halfway point, and as usual, did not disappoint. We even have a little bit of the elixir that comes around every few years, but not so much lately – the expectation that someone within the PGA field can win golf’s …
