I’ll be heading off with the Scrambler for a power-packed, 72-hold 48 hours at Turning Stone Resort in Verona, NY. It’s a quick, 3-hour jaunt ‘cross the I-90, between Syracuse and Utica. I want to know if you’ve been there and which courses you’ve played, so fill out our poll with as many TS courses …
Quiros, Kaymer, Schwartzel, Donald, Colsaerts, McDowell, Molinari, Poulter…as close to a murderer’s row, to cite the old NY Yankee nickname, as we have in golf today. Five of the eight were on the 2010 edition of the Euro Ryder Cup team, all are European (more on those stacked odds later) and three currently hold major …
People need to start sending Lee Westwood some love in less than 140 characters. The world’s #1 ranked player is growing frustrated with the constant negativity and criticism he’s receiving on his Twitter account and may soon stop tweeting entirely. “It’s just pathetic,” Westwood said. “It’s there to interact with people and give them an …
Did anyone see that coming? Acushnet, the parent company of Titleist and FootJoy, will be purchased by … not Nike … not Callaway … not any golfing company that you might have anticipated. Fila Korea wasn’t even mentioned along the rumor trail of the past half year. Mirae APE? Never heard of them.
I have to admit, I love the drive along I-90 in New York state. You see at least a dozen golf courses along the way, including the skeletal remains of one that was laid out, had a soft opening, but never opened to the public. That one, outside Rochester, would be The Belfry USA, intended …

A wet Diamond Hawk golf course in Cheektowaga gave a 74-golfer field an early-season challenge at the Section VI qualifier for high school state golf championships at Cornell University.
As noted in my Bubba Watson post, it’s always fascinating when the volatile and fickle nature of golf imposes itself on the seemingly robotic professionals of the PGA Tour. During the Sunday action at Sawgrass, Lucas Glover accomplished a feat that I don’t believe I’ve ever seen before.
Given my business background, I have always enjoyed analyzing numbers and identifying patterns. During this process, what is often more fascinating are the “outliers” which fight against our standard expectations of “normal” patterns. In the world of Finance, there is a concept known as the “Beta Coefficient” or “Beta,” for short. In simplest terms, Beta is …
VANCOUVER, British Columbia-The winner of the 2011 PLAYERS Championship used CB-501 forged cavity-back irons made by Japanese golf-club manufacturer Miura Golf, which has been making the world’s highest-quality forged irons for 45 years, the company announced today.
If you’re not currently watching The Players Championship on NBC, you’re missing out. 31 different players are currently within seven shots including Sergio Garcia who went birdie, birdie, eagle, birdie during a four-hole stretch on the back 9 (his first nine of the day given the weather-impacted tee times). Graeme McDowell and David Toms are …
Time flies by and days become years and soon you think something that happened last year actually happened five years ago. That’s kind of the feeling I took away from reading this Associated Press article about the history of Tiger Woods’ injuries. The most recent injury issue came at this week’s The Players Championship at …
