Tiger did it! He won the Masters. This win is up there with Arnold’s dramatic come from behind 1960 U.S. Open win, Hogan’s comeback (from serious injury) win at the 1950 U.S. Open, coined the “miracle at Merion”, 46 year old Jack’s ’86 Masters, and Tiger’s ’97 Masters, and, yes, amateur Francis Ouimet’s amazing win […]
My prediction for the Masters winner is Rory McIlroy. Right. Pretty safe. But not really, given the depth of the field. Hell, an amateur could win. Freddie could win. As could Bernhard Langer.

In the first four holes of that round, Spieth, unbelievably, scored three bogeys, erasing that lead, giving Kuch and the field new life. Most golfers, pro and amateur, would have collapsed further from […]
More than anything in golf, I love the sound and feel of solidly contacting a golf ball, and watching it take off like a jet rising into the cold morning air, and seeing it fall at its apex like a butterfly on a blossom. What are golf’s antecedents to achieve this state of near perfection? Jack […]
One of the great things about golf is that, at times, any golfer can experience what the pros experience. So the other day at Bennett Valley, I’m a single, joining up with two welcoming guys, James and Daniel, originally from Kenya and now Americans. I only have time for nine, and my round is going […]
