Double Tiger Woods News – Nude Photos Lawsuit and Toxicology Report Shows THC

Two bits of Tiger Woods news as we head to hump day. First, despite being torn apart by a pack of harpies during his infamous sex scandal, Tiger allegedly traded nude photos by cell phone with Lindsay Vonn. In a completely bone-headed move, Vonn stored them in an Internet cloud that was hacked, along with the nude photos of dozens of other celebrities. The photos...

Fear and Loathing at the PGA Championship Vol. 2 – Confessions of a Drunk, Gold-digging, Golfer-banging Dancer

Special to GNN and AWITP by Yale Bluer CHARLOTTE, NC – She had a voice like Foghorn Leghorn and the manners of Yosemite Sam. She’d fake-baked her skin to a brassy orange and streaked her spaghetti-straight hair a metallic gold. She wore ass-high, crack-tight, denim short shorts, wedges, and a scoop top two sizes too tight. She said she was 34, but my guess is she’d...

Thunderbear Roars – Denmark’s Thorbjorn Olesen Shares First Round Lead at 99th PGA Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC – His name means “Thunderbear” and his golf game rises with the sudden ferocity of a storm. Perhaps the most mercurial young rising star of the European Tour, the lanky Danish player born Jakob Olesen, but who pays professionally under his middle name, “Thorbjorn,” shares the lead in the 99th PGA Championship with the USA’s Kevin Kisner at 4-under. It’s...

The Crucial Holes at Quail Hollow Club for the 2017 PGA Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC – You have to love Jim Furyk. He shoots from the lip. When asked about the changes to Quail Hollow Club for the 99th PGA Championship, he had the perfect laconic reply. “One could be the toughest opening hole in golf. It actually looks like a really nice par-5 to me, but for some reason they put par-4 on the card,” he deadpanned. See what I mean...

The Heroes of the Formative Years of the PGA Championship

CHARLOTTE, NC – Like an archaeologist wide-eyed with wonder as he finally deciphers ancient hieroglyphics on a graven monument, so too was I mesmerized by the photos on the walls of venerable Canterbury Golf Club in Cleveland, Ohio. They depicted a more civilized age, the heady halcyon time during which the PGA Championship was born, an Interwar America hurtling...
