Would Tiger Woods have dominated using old equipment among questions golf bloggers want answered

Sure, the pros may call it silly season, but golf bloggers from top to bottom are keeping a tight schedule as they discuss everyone from Tiger Woods to their own golf games.

  • Would Tiger Woods have dominated in years past with the older equipment? That’s what Mulligan is asking at The Golf Blog.

  • Luke Swilor didn’t have the season he wanted in 2007, so now is the time to forget about him … Just kidding, Luke! We’re always behind our favorite golfing blogger, and we were thrilled to see his recent update where he lets you know how he copes with the snow and talks about how excited he is for 2008.

  • If anyone can understand Luke’s plight it’s the Golf Chick. Seems Kristen didn’t have the year she hoped for and is planning to get her game back on track in 2008.

  • Geoff Shackelford gives us a rundown of Golf Digest’s picks for the best new courses of 2007.

  • Our friend Larry Olmsted at USA Today is taking his shots at the Ritz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation. With guns, golf and booze, Olmsted gives this Georgia resort some high praise.

  • Bill Wolfrum is back from a road trip that taught him about golf in France, as well as how to predict NFL scores, it appears.

  • Mike at Perform Better Golf posts about feeling more at home on the golf course.

  • Quick, head over to GolfNow.com and see if you can win yourself a free wedge from Feel Golf by answering today’s question.

Golf bloggers and others reporting on Southern California fires

Sadly, wildfires are destroying a great deal of land and homes throughout Southern California with reportedly up to 700 homes lost. Here are some blogs reporting on the fires, particularly in relation to golf courses.

While this is a golf site and we’d like to hear about any damage to Southern California golf courses, we know that’s a minor concern at the matter for so many affected by these horrible fires. So please feel free to leave any comments, thoughts or information in comments.

Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Southern California or has family in affected areas during this frightening time. Good luck to all of you.

Presidents Cup has golf bloggers hitting winning shots

The Presidents Cup is history and the U.S. came home champions. Needless to say, golf bloggers had plenty to say after an entertaining weekend of play.

  • Robert Thompson reports that the International team didn’t feel that they truly had the home course advantage at Royal Montreal.

  • Golf for Beginners say that Mike Weir proved Tiger Woods is human, though Chris Baldwin thinks the Canadians need to tone down the Weir celebration. Still, the Golf Blog says to give Weir some credit.

  • Golf Blogger says it was the foursomes that sunk the International side in the end.

  • Hooked on Golf Blog has a news flash: The Presidents Cup and the Ryder Cup are not the same thing.

  • Even Par Round thinks Scott Verplank made Tom Lehman’s decision to underutilize him at the Ryder Cup look silly.

  • The PGA Punter has nothing but praise for Phil Mickelson.

  • OobGolf agrees with Jack Nicklaus that it would be interesting to see the Presidents Cup make its way to Asia eventually.
