Reports of Golf’s Demise Greatly Exaggerated

Popularity of Golf Always Up and Down I have a rather snobby friend who, among other habits, such as being a physicist, is a tennis devotee, and generally scorns the game of golf. He’s had even more fun than usual lately by telling me that golf is in a state of decline, and will probably …

Ready for Sunday at Royal Birkdale

Almost Everyone Who Should Be Here  is Here I watched the first round of the Ricoh Women’s British Open with interest, but not with too much anxiety. The first round seems to be the time in which eager, new players shine and make a play for the lead, or at least a top spot. By …

Ready for the British Opens? Whose Will be Best?

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 …

Women’s US Open – What’s Up With Stephanie Meadow?

Third Place at US Women’s Open Quite a Story It’s not as if Michelle Wie’s victory wasn’t spectacular enough. Her victory train has arrived, and she has embarked upon the second and more sensational phase of her career. When she finally got off the 18th green, there was some sense of “Whew! I guess I …

Can Wie Finally Win Big? It’s awfully tempting to get ahead of ourselves when we see one player take charge the way Michelle Wie did in the US Women’s Open on Friday. We saw it last week, on the same course with Martin Kaymer, and perhaps we’ll see a repeat. Getting ahead of ourselves, however, …

LPGA Women’s US Open – Veterans Taking Charge

Nature’s Order is Restored After Round 1 Following the early part of the Women’s US Open’s first round this morning, I was shocked at all the new names attacking the top of the board. The only name that didn’t shock me, of course, was Stacy Lewis, who seems to have brought her game to just …

O Canada! LPGA Finally Heads North

Manulife Financial LPGA Classic This Week All right, we’ve done the palm trees of the Bahamas, the waters of the Hawaiian Islands, and the green painted landscape of desert courses in the American Southwest. This week, however, is one of my favorite in the golf season, because the courses start to look a little more …

Pettersen (and her back) Are Back in Texas

Pettersen Leads in First Round of North Texas Shootout I love it when people beat a diagnosis, or least give it a good run for its money. Suzann Pettersen is a golfer with a capitol “G,” and it’s sad to see to someone that excellent and competitive have to sit it out for a long …

Michelle Hitting Her Stride

Michelle Wie Arrived! A lot of us have written a lot about Michelle Wie lately, and I was going to promise to take a break. I know there are a ton of other stories going on in the game of golf. This week, however, you’ve got to forgive us all. This week, we’ve got to …

Wie, Thompson or Hull? Fun Final at Kraft

YOUNG STARPOWER IN FINAL ROUND Every week with a golf tournament is fun for me, without exception, but I’m having a particularly good time with this one, because three very interesting people will shoot it out for the cup, unless of course, someone like Karrie Webb shoots a 59 and steals it, which is always …
