Equal Pay in the LPGA

Following U.S. Soccer Win, Equal Pay Timely for Women’s Tour I don’t know how the pay gap between men and women shakes out in other countries, but the USA has grandly failed to enter the 20th century, much less the 21st.

Stacy Lewis is Back

After Maternity Leave, Stacy Lewis Intends to  Recapture the Magic For men, this is a foolhardy subject to take on, but my mother always told me to ask questions if I didn’t know what I was talking about. Anyone who wants to jump in with answers is more than welcome. What are the physical manifestations …

Pulling for Michelle Wie

Once Phenom Wie Suggests Early Retirement I have a special problem with the cosmos when it short circuits young people on a mission, by treating them as old people. Many of us have followed the Michelle Wie saga for decades, or at least it feels that way. We watched her take on the pressure of …

Wie Sets Haney Straight on His “isms”

Wie Sets Haney Straight

Hank Haney Under Fire By Michelle Wie and Others Hank Haney has, among his other credentials, one superior item on his resume.
