Is it just me or do you also feel the lack of excitement on the PGA Tour at this time of year? Gone are the unofficial-money events that used to fill the end of the year. No more Skins Game. No more made-for-television events that pit the top male professionals against the top females. Even …

Most of the time, when I get calls for computer help I can usually figure out how to fix things out instinctively. Why? Well because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is I’m t…

Why should you exercise? Because if you don't, it will catch up to you at some point and cause “a heap of unwanted problems”! As a columnist, the majority of my writing has been devoted to this topic. And, I have plenty of personal experience to prove the importance of exercise, especially a…

In this series, I have talked about physical fitness for seniors, the challenges associated with growing old, and the importance of a workout routine. No matter what we do to slow the process, we will grow old (if we are lucky). What matters, then, is the effort we direct to accepting or cha…

If there is one thing that drives me nuts, it’s a golf course over-run with homes. When it comes to golf courses and the houses and development that go along with many new courses the wounds are usually permanent scars.

If there is one basic function that everyone is familiar with and yet shrouded in mystery I would have to say that would be the “print” command. Again, everybody is familiar with the print command – click the print button and your printer spits out a hard copy. But the reason it’s shrouded i…

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 must learn to walk …

I have said before that I truly enjoy playing a new course. Seeing the layout and the architect’s vision for the first time can be a treat. Just a couple of Fridays ago I received just such a treat. This new course, however, is not your normal course. It is also played under different rules …

For many years I have written about maintaining your strength as you grow older. When I started writing about this topic, I was 64 years old. As I added years, I was still running and lifting weights five days a week. By age 70, I had stopped running due to a hip operation but went to the gy…

Soon it will be September 11th. On that day, we will mark the 20th anniversary of 9-11. Like so many others, I have 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.

With golf season in full swing, it’s difficult to swing a club without hitting a charity or fundraising golf event. Most of these are played in a scramble format. The idea is to have fun and allow everyone, no matter their skill level, to have a good time. All while donating money to a good cause.

My 80-year-old brother said to me in a recent phone call, "Brother, you are old". I thought about that and then replied, "Yes, I am". Since I can't change the fact that I am old, the real challenge is how I handle it. In my last Navy assignment I worked with 550 retired military personnel, o…

Ask any of my golf buddies and they will tell you that I tend to carry more than the 14-club limit the rules allow. Being in the media, I get to test new clubs all the time. I hate not having my trusty old version with me if the new one happens to not quite work for me.
