I have had the opportunity to watch some of the recent LPGA golf on television. There is no question that there are players with significant skill currently on show. My concern, at least for the growth of the game in the USA, is the lack of American stars. With the exception of Lexi Thompson, most… Continue reading Ladies Golf
I would imagine that emotions were very mixed, post the events of Sunday afternoon. The press has placed many views and perspective on what unfolded.

This name linked to 15/16 and 17th holes at the PGA National, stems from designer Jack Nicklaus. It provided some fun over last week’s Honda Classic. Only three other golfers have ever won a PGA tournament having had a quadruple bogey. Adam Scott joins that elite group. His performance tee to green was mostly peerless;… Continue reading The Bear Trap
