Inbee Park hit five buckets of range balls when she was first introduced to golf, but it wasn’t until she got to the practice green that she was hooked on the sport. She just liked the way the ball fell into the cup and the sound that made. The rest was history as Inbee went […]
Watching last year’s Insperity Greats of Golf this year, I was struck with how accurate these remarkable players still are. I was most impressed with Nicklaus, Player, Trevino, and Sorenstam.

His game is sharp, decisive, intelligent, in control. As he reports, he is patient. That’s the word he keeps using, and it’s one of the most demanding […]
