Lee Ann Walker Sets High Score Record

Walker, Unaware of New Rule, Sets Record for Penalty Strokes I should be able to look up Lee Ann Walker, professional golfer, and find out anything I need to know about her career. But no, you won’t find anything on the internet today about previous decades, only one round of golf played this week. Have …

Successful Golf Expensive

Tour Golf Life Expensive,  Difficult to Sustain and Balance I recall an interview with Padraig Harrington in which he was asked about problems on tour. He replied that as professional golfers, “we don’t really have problems.” The comment was right for the specific situation under discussion, so it made sense then. However, I’m sure Harrington …

LPGA Seniors Making it Happen – Again

In a few days, the LPGA is holding an event at Pete Dye’s French Lick. It started in 2017 as a solitary major on the Legends Tour before being joined by the U.S. Senior Women’s Open.

South America and Tour Golf

Munoz and Niemann in Two Straight Victories for South America We can argue all we want over who invented the game of golf, or the game that eventually became golf. For the modern world, however, it is Britain, more specifically Scotland. This being a given, the game arriving on Canadian and U.S. shores is a …

Ally McDonald, a Good Bet

Alternate Ally McDonald Not Intimidated at Solheim Not to beat a dead horse, but the slim American loss at Solheim was not a tragedy, and regardless of who one is rooting for, it was a great competition, albeit a bit on the take-your-time side. To further the summary, get Julie Inkster back if you possibly …

Pettersen, Solheim – the Perfect Finish

Suzanne Pettersen

Suzanne Pettersen Retires at High Point I can’t put my finger on what it is about the Solheim Cup. There is an uplifting feeling that I get watching it, one I don’t even feel at the Masters. It’s not just because it’s a continental battle, but the way in which it is waged. Talk about …

Solheim 2019 – Who is Anne Van Dam?

Anne Van Dam

Anne Van Dam Second Dutch Golfer at Solheim The first photos are out of the European Solheim Team for 2019. I love the plaid front jackets. Where can I get one? I guess that by the time Solheim is over, they will become iconic as a women’s event – too bad. Take a look at …
