Here I sit at my computer. It's the end of the day on Wednesday, September 11th. Today marked the 18th anniversary of 9-11. Like so many others, I found myself thinking back to that day. I remember the pain, the feeling of hopelessness, the anger, and then the pride in my fellow man.

If you have been watching the PGA Tour these past several weeks, you very likely learned something. You may have learned how to play just like a touring professional. Or as I like to call it “How to play a round of golf in just under six hours”.

We have all heard the saying “Drive for show, putt for dough”. We see this every week on the professional tours. The person bombing it off the tee seldom, if ever, beats the golfer with the hot putter.

Today's political climate is a mess. It seems like everyone either loves or hates their representatives. Sadly, it's not just a little one way of the other. People actually hate or love them with a scary passion.

The heat is on! My backyard and my oven have something in common. Their temperature! With a heat index in triple figures, playing an outdoor sport such as golf is likely not the best idea for many of us wishing to get in some exercise or just to get out of the house. However, should you insi…

That time of the year loathed by all golfers is here. As courses ready themselves for the summer, golfers across this land will swear at every course superintendent. The most important part of getting a course ready for the heat and rain of summer is aerification. It is this process that rem…

Summers aren't just for kids. We parents enjoy a break from work and the toils of every-day life as well. With summer fast approaching, my family talked about not letting too much grass grow under our feet. We would need to take a few long weekends away to relax.

This weekend I stepped outside and came to a quick conclusion. It's getting darn hot out there and the Sun can be relentless. Just a few minutes outside was enough to make my cheeks a little red. In just those few moments I realized that I should have protected my skin from the damage that t…

It’s not every day that a collegiate national championship is contested right in your back yard. Usually we have to travel great distances to watch teams square off in football or basketball for the right to claim the title of college’s “National Champion”.

We golfers can learn a lot form watching the professionals. Covering the Honda Classic and seeing how these guys prepare taught me a lot. While watching the Masters, I learned quite a bit more about course management. Following the RBC Heritage, I learned a great lesson in playing with a lot…

I have told all of you for many, many years that my favorite major is The Masters. After this past week, do any of you still take exception to my statement?

Now that we have moved the clocks ahead and we have daylight a bit later every day, the idea of taking off early on a Friday, taking a drive and playing golf may be just what someone needs at the end of a long week.

Florida is officially a busy sports place this time of year. We have the PGA and Champions Tours here, motorsport racing in Daytona and Sebring, college basketball, and even ice hockey. For me though , this time of year used to turn my attention to baseball. There was a time when baseball fi…

Nearly everyone's favorite club to hit is the driver. Something about hitting a golf ball as far as possible right down the middle of the fairway really satisfies the soul.

What the 2019 Honda Classic lacked in a super-star studded field, it more than made up for in drama and excitement. At one point on Sunday afternoon, five players were tied for the lead and another half-dozen or so were within two shots. The event came down to a dramatic 15-foot birdie putt …

We all love new equipment. For many, the idea represents a rebirth of our potential. Surely that fancy new putter will help us make those pesky 3-footers that we continually miss. Truth is, that putter in your bag found its way there are some point because it was “the one”.

When I travel to Orlando to cover the PGA Merchandise Show, I try to get in at least one round of golf while in town. Between the theme parks and family living in the area, I spend a lot of time in Kissimmee.

If you have played one of the 130-plus courses designed by Pete Dye, chances are that course was a co-collaboration with his wife, Alice. The two were not just a married couple of over 68 years, they were perhaps the greatest team in golf course design the world has ever known.

It is probably high time that many of us amateurs realize that we may never shoot par over the course of 18 holes. In fact, most psychologists will tell us that one of the best ways to improve is to set reachable goals and, once achieved, set another and then another. You have to learn to wa…
