It’s tough to not feel just a shade envious when strolling the grounds of Saddlebrook Golf & Tennis Resort near Tampa. Also the home of a boarding prep school for elite golf and tennis players, you’ll see smiling kids enjoying open-air meals, lounging at the pool and strolling the manicured resort trails en route to […]
We can’t get enough of New Orleans: The food … the folks … the festivities … And how about the fairways! The local golf scene hustles with a tidy collection of layouts within the city and another collection on the West Bank. Quick tourist tip: The “West Bank” is actually east of New Orleans’ central […]
It looks like we’re going to get not one, but two looks at Augusta National within about five months from fall of 2020 to April of 2021. Tantalizing, amirite? Of course, watching The Masters on TV is exciting, but the chances of any of us actually getting to play the course and the holes of […]
The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is a bustling and busy scene. Thankfully there are quiet escapes if you know where to look. Metroplex golfers in the know will key you in on the solitude available in Gunter, Texas at The Bridges Golf Club, located north of downtown Dallas on Highway 289. The Bridges is one of […]
Golf Architecture’s Richard Humphreys updates us on construction of 2027 PGA Championship host, the PGA Frisco. The Gil Hanse-designed East course and Beau Welling-designed West course are being constructed at the same time near Dallas with a June 2022 opening scheduled after the PGA of America wisely insisted on a year of grow-in.While the property […]
Like father, like son 👌 #Tiger pic.twitter.com/9m2e1dYjMo— HowDidiDo (@HowDidiDo) November 1, 2020 I was initially surprised that the (understandably) protective Tiger Woods would expose his 11-year-old to the national TV spotlight at this month’s PNC Championship (aka the Father-Son-Daughter-Stepchild, etc…). But it’s a tribute to the well-regarded and impressively-attended 20-team event of major winners that […]
2020 saw the opening of fifteen courses eligible for Golf Digest’s “Best New” award in what appears more like the new normal than an aberration, as Derek Duncan writes of the three courses singled out this year:It’s humorous now to think that the 40 or so new courses that opened in 2010 didn’t form a […]
Now that I’ve gotten your attention…yes, actually, it takes no imagination at all to picture the above-mentioned in the headline. But that was the one “reveal” Keith Pelley gave Sportsmail in a Monday interview following last Friday’s news dump of a PGA Tour-European Tour alliance. This should have happened ages ago in the form of […]
With the USGA Executive Committee essentially a cast of living, breathing bobbleheads I doubt most care who they nominate these days. Nonetheless, the latest three to join the group of 15 have impressive careers still going and will surely add to a committee filling two outgoing seats—a subtle reminder to those with a sense of […]
I have no idea if the organizers find the .21 (18-49) for last week’s The Match 3 a success or not given the bizarre sports ratings of 2020. As Mitch Salem’s roundup of last Friday’s cable numbers highlights, The Match was just edged out by WETV’s Love After Lockup with the coveted demo and landed […]
Back in April Keith Pelley was lamenting the difficult financial times. Job losses were predicted, etc. In abruptly announcing a new PGA Tour alliance, Pelley scoffed at a Twitter assertion that the European Tour was in poor financial shape. It’s a particularly strange stance given how there would be complete understanding amidst a pandemic that […]
While one more fall event is to be played this week in Mexico the West Coast Swing is not far away. And outside of a smattering fans in Maui and (gulp) a downscaled but still-amtitious Waste Management Open, fans will not be in attendance in early 2021. (The viability of the events remains in question […]
As a member of the European Tour’s Board of Directors, I didn’t expect Paul McGinley to tip his hand much in this Sky Sports piece endorsing the PGA Tour alliance announced Friday. As I reported Friday, the board McGinley sits on had been briefed on the offer and opened the European Tour books to Raine […]
The Alfred Dunhill Championship traditionally delivers the best nature shots of the golf year.

This handy roundup was posted by the European Tour social team: View this post on Instagram A post shared by European […]

Like everyone else in the golf world, I was thoroughly entertained this past weekend as I watched many of the world’s best players try their best to win a Green Jacket. While I keenly observed their prodigious swings and marveled at their short game prowess, part of me remained on the lookout for subtle clues […]
Since its release in the fall of 2018, the Titleist TS Driver line has been one of the most popular drivers on the PGA Tour and beyond. The TS drivers also firmly entrenched Titleist as one of the category leaders and finally shed their reputation of making “slow and spinny” drivers. Not surprisingly, Titleist now […]
Before golf, my sport was beer-league softball. Our team was brutal, but we sure had fun. After every game, we’d gather in a semi-circle around the tailgate of Terry’s truck, have a beer or two, and decide who’d be the latest recipient of the coveted “trophy” … a wooden leg adorned with baseball hose and […]
Recently, Voice Caddie released their SL1 Rangefinder. Interestingly, it offers a combination of features that no other product has on the market right now (not even Bushnell). The SL1 integrates GPS, laser, and green undulation technology, allowing it to offer golfers multiple data points when they consider their target and club selection. After testing it […]
There is a lot of talk these days about driver distance and its impact on the game. This is not really a new topic as the same discussions happened when Tiger first made a splash on the pro tour. Separate from the pro tours, this leaves many amateurs wondering if they are hitting their driver […]
Like many golfers, I signed up for a WHOOP this summer after learning that the PGA Tour was distributing the bands to players, caddies, officials and golf journalists. The decision came after PGA Tour player Nick Watney decided to seek out a Covid-19 test after noticing abnormal readings from his WHOOP, which is a band […]
Over the past few years, utility irons (sometimes referred to as driving irons) have become a growing category in the golf equipment industry. Almost every major manufacturer is making them now. Compared to traditional long irons, a utility iron’s design can offer higher ball speeds and launch angles. In theory, it makes them a suitable […]
Golf can be a remarkably counterintuitive game. We’re taught to perform the same technique repeatedly to gain proficiency as a ball striker. But what if going completely off the script and doing the complete opposite of what you usually do can make you a better player? In this article, I will introduce you to a […]
Golf is a relative game, but still a competitive one. Whether it is prestigious tournaments, local club matches, or just competing with how you played last month, golfers are always looking for a way to measure themselves against other golfers. For many, a handicap provides this measurement. Which begs the question – what is a […]
I’ve been playing golf for close to 25 years now. As I learn more and more about the game, there are lessons “hiding in plain sight” that I wish I knew when I was first taking up the game. In this article, I’d like to explore a concept that eluded me for a long time. […]
