Mouton Cadet is a worthy official wine for a brilliant Ryder Cup

I don't know about you, but I'm still buzzing with the memories from the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine National. Not only did my "home team" win back the Cup (finally!), I thought my home state of Minnesota acquitted itself very well. For the past year, I…

World Caddie Matches – A Global Golf Event Is Coming To Connecticut

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.

A Young Girl Rocks Out on Keyboard – Do You Think She Hit a Golf Ball?

Dan Everett posted shared this on his Facebook page and I thought I’d say a few words about her playing. I managed to find it on YouTube:

The commenters there identify the piece as Sonatina in D Major, Op 36, No 6 by Muzio Clementi. I wouldn’t have guessed that, but then, I simply don’t know Clementi. But that’s irrelevant.

I want to talk about her playing. Actually, I want to talk about how she uses her body. She plays with her body, as any halfway decent musician does. Look at how her upper body moves once she’s underway. That’s not merely a matter of moving her arms back and forth in front of the keyboard, it is some of that. It’s mostly keeping the groove and it’s setting the muscle tone in which her arms and fingers make the more differentiated movements that activate the keys.
