As Nike Golf Closes, Phil Mushnick Slams Them as a Grisly Shuck

If you want the truth about what’s happening in the darker corners of the sports world, Phil Mushnick of the New York Post should be a daily stop. Today he skewers Nike’s entire Tiger Woods-fueled lunacy that led to their demise. From the article: “Nike was barking up the wrong money tree. Golfers aren’t as impressionable or as vulnerable as high...

Product Review Callaway Apex Forged Irons

I’m swinging new irons for the first time in 37 years, and it feels like I just got out of prison. As for my last set: Fred Flintstone, here’s your freaking golf clubs back. “Are those original Ping Eyes?” people would ask me, staring slack-jawed at my golf bag as if they were meeting a Dodo bird. “Yes, they are. Do you still point at airplanes too?” I’d retort, but...

JB’s Best Hot Sauce is Wicked!

I once drank a glass of Frank’s Red Hot for $20 when I was at Deerfield. It burned for a couple of minutes going down, but otherwise there were no ill effects. “Okay, that was ballsy,” said a dude named Rob-o who begrudgingly handed me my winnings, and only then after Professor Corkum threatened to cut off his nose if he didn’t. Then there...

New Daphne’s Head Covers

Flippin’ Amtrak lost my alligator and American eagle during my trip up north…either that or some little girl has a couple new hand puppets, but I had to get replacements for my 3 and 5-woods. So I went with the tufted puffin and the bull. The tufted puffin has always been a favorite since I visited Bandon Dunes. I gave the old one to Britt for her bag...

Product Review – Adidas Adizero Golf Shoes

MARCY, MY – So I’m going to go all Tony Korologos on everyone and review some more gear. Check out my bumpin’ new kicks. It’s the Adidas Adizero golf shoe, my first shoe since 1985 that hasn’t been a Foot Joy and hasn’t been a “wing tip” design. They are black, (the most important requirement), waterproof, (the 2nd most...

Nikon Coolpix Product Review

Here’s one of our regular features we haven’t done for a while – a special type of equipment review of my writing and photography gear. (For a laugh Google “Olympus Camedia Product Review” and see what comes up first. You’ll see what I mean.) I’m loyal to my gear if it performs. If it serves me well, I’m only too proud...

Olympus Camedia Product Review

Pictures, they say, are worth 1,000 words. I’ll give you a few anyway. This O-lame-pus Comedian wasn’t fit to photograph my cat’s litter box. So I had my new Brian Symonds oversized, mega-soled, 64-degree sand wedge do the product review for me. The sand wedge and my new Nikon – which took as its first photo the snapshot above – work...

Phil +1 at Northern Trust, but minus one wedge

Phil Mickelson opened his Northern Trust Open with a 1-over 72 after keeping his promise not to play the controversial pre-1990 Ping Eye 2 wedge which caused a tempest in a tea cup with journeyman pro Scott McCarron. Mickelson, completely within his rights to play the club according to Tim Finchem’s comments at yesterday’s presser, elected to leave the...

Scott McCarron Should Practice more and Hang Phil Mickelson Less

Okay so a PGA Tour also-ran, a guy who makes close to a million dollars for finishing 82d and 91st, when he plays the Tour at all, dimes Phil Mickelson as a cheater for playing approved clubs from 1990ish??? What a tool. “Watermelon! Watermelon! Watermelon Rind! Look at the scoreboard and see who’s behind!” When has Scott McCarron ever been relevant...
