Top 10 Things Not to say to ESPN’s Michael Collins in a Pro-Am

Having been, at various times, both the celebrity in the pro am as well as a player, I can attest to the bedlam, mayhem, and chaos a pro am round can devolve to. I once watched a guy playing in a pro-am in Jamaica smack a stone tee marker in front of him, (a giant tiki…decorative and festive, but bad idea for a tee marker) and had the ball catapult into the...

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.”...

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...

Tiger to Flemma: A Joke, Then a Good Answer to “Have you Lost a step?”

Photo credit: BarStool Sports HAVEN, WI – Tiger Woods’s PGA Championship press conference wasn’t over for five minutes before every alert on my cell phone and computer started going off: Twitter, Facebook, text messages, I think the only thing that didn’t ring was my LinkedIn account. The Internet was ablaze, discussing my question to Tiger in the presser, “Have you...

Golf World Goes All Digital

It’s yet another victim of the modern, digital age: Golf World magazine will no longer be available in print. The magazine, one of the flagships in sports, will be all-digital as of next Monday. Dating back to 1947, it was the oldest continuously running golf magazine in America. Sadly, watch for everyone else to follow suit soon. Happily, they’ll still...

Fay Vincent Says “Bonds and Clemens Cheated and we all Know it”

While I finish up some work from Fallen Oak G.C., Beau Rivage Resort and Casino, and Biloxi, MS, here’s former MLB commissioner Fay Vincent, taking steroid cheats and ESPN steroids apologists to the woodshed. Bud Selig and Timid Tim Finchem, take notice: you need a clue on steroids. From the article: The Hall should make clear the voters are not obliged to...

Video of the WEAK! Ron Artest Elbows James Harden

While we finish up some serious U.S. Open prep work, get ready for the Travis Invitational at Garden City and the Anderson Team event at Winged Foot, and continue our Architect’s Progress Series, here’s proof that Ron Artest is still the same jerk he was before changing his name to Metta World Peace. How about changing your name again to something more...

Before the Masters, it’s all Tiger Tiger Tiger

You’d think all he did was get a DUI or something the way everyone swept 121 skanks under the rug like so much pocket lint. Still, with Hank Haney’s/Jaime Diaz’s book coming out tomorrow, I’m sure there’ll be more than a share of distractions/discussions about things other than swing changes and “tweaked” ligaments. In a Ryan...

Steve Czaban has Photo Montage of Tiger Pebble Beach Club Throwing Competition

Judging from these photos, Tiger is prepping for the Olympic javelin event with his golf clubs. (The way he putted yesterday he certainly doesn’t belong in the Olympics playing golf, that’s for certain.) Asks Czaban, “Can we get him some straps like on ski poles?” Forbes magazine rated Woods the No. 2 Most Hated Athlete in the World (behind...
