Golf is green. As counterintuitive as that may seem, it’s true. Across the country and around the world, golf provides a critical sanctuary for creatures large and small. Don’t believe me? Just watch this… please.
Of course, the sanctuary aspect is only one piece of golf’s sustainability puzzle. In order to grow and thrive into the future, golf… more than many sports… must embrace environmental initiatives whenever possible, and raise awareness as to the importance of adherence to sustainable water usage and agronomy standards.
And that’s where the “Green Out” at this week’s Waste Management Phoenix Open comes in. It’s a special day set aside by the event’s sponsors, where attendees and players are encouraged to wear green, Continue reading “Waste Management Phoenix Open – How to Ace The Green Out”
I've never been big on resolutions. But recently, I've started feeling my age for the first time. And if I don't set some goals now, the next thing I know, either my golfing days (or the entire civilized world) will be over. Feels like about a 50-50 pro…
It's two days before Christmas, and somehow it snuck up on me again. As my wife made her 40th trip up the stairs from her gift-wrapping in the basement and placed another armful of impeccable packages under the tree, she casually asked m…

These days there's a massive nostalgia for the 20th century. As a result, idiosyncratic old objects are reemerging from attics and basements. Vintage artifacts from decades past are being coveted by collectors, and sought after by those seeking to reconnect with what now seems a simpler time.

It’s an idea whose time has come, a global golf competition between the world’s top caddies.
Stellar players in their own rights, these men spend most of the year supporting the likes of Jim Furyk, and Bubba Watson, but this coming Monday they’ll be taking part in the World Caddie Matches at Connecticut’s Mohegan Sun Golf Club.
It’ll be Americans vs Internationals, and the one day/two round event will feature both alternate shot and singles matches. The public is welcome, and the gallery is expected to include a tour player… or several.
Proceeds from the World Caddie Matches will go to K9s for Warriors, a non-profit whose mission is to provide service dogs to veterans.
I’m guessing this unique, first ever world caddie tournament might just become an annual tradition.
