Don’t Demonize Spieth

Pressure Gets to Everyone By now, everyone who follows professional golf knows what happened Sunday in the 2016 Masters. A tournament featuring high winds, the yips, and slow play warnings emitted a touch of anxiety above and beyond the normal bar of tangling with Augusta. We watched Ernie Els tailspin into the yips in a …

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.

Feherty and Golf’s Image

Humorist/Golfer Feherty Shines the Light on Golf’s Many Faces In history and its iconic literature, the fool is an important character, and the term doesn’t mean what the modern word means, In Shakespeare, the fool is more hip, more clever, and shines the light of commentary on all the self-images people are trying to sell. …

Matsuyama Tied at Players

Matsuyama New Type of Newcomer Newcomer Maintaining Low Average on Larger Tour It used to be that we could look at a newcomer to the western tours askance – very askance. So what if he won twenty tournaments on the African, Eastern European or Asian tours? That’s just not the same level of competition that …

Paula’s LPGA Masters

Would Be Fun, Good For Tour This seems like the perfect time for everyone who cares to throw in their two cents about the theoretical Masters tournament for the LPGA, to be held on the same course as the men play, probably one week later, as envisioned by Paula Creamer. My two cents is that’s …

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 …
