The Strange Case of Keith Foster, Golf Course Architect

I almost couldn’t believe my eyes as I scanned the page. Keith Foster, well-known, well-respected, well-sought after golf course architect had just pled guilty to smuggling and selling goods made form endangered species, a felony, and was facing up to a five-year prison sentence.

Woods Enters Guilty Plea, Media Outlets Mostly Silent

If you needed any more proof that Tiger Woods is still getting free passes from the media, the deafening silence by the golf media on the day he pleaded guilty in his DUI case was concrete proof. “Looking haggard in a black suit and white T-shirt, the golf legend entered the plea to reckless driving through his lawyer at court in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.”...

She said she was 34, but my guess is she’d...

Steve Czaban Skewers the Rio Olympics Course and it’s Potential Closing

Steve Czaban has this eye-opening expose on the graft, incompetence, and neglect plaguing the future of the Rio Olympics course. I remember telling certain golf architects that losing that bid would be a blessing, and that the guy who won would be sorry in the long run. And while it was fun for three weeks, it looks like that might be the extent of the course’s...

It’s the day after Thanksgiving. Every dish in the house is soiled, the tablecloth is stained, the rug is a shambles, and there’s dry, stringy, tasteless turkey leftover for the next two weeks. See why I eat steak instead? That also means it’s time for another AWITP holiday tradition – Jay’s Sports Awards, a.k.a. the Jazzys. We’ll...
