A few decades ago, I judged my rounds of golf according to the number of balls I lost: If I ended the round finding more balls that I lost, it was a good day.

The much anticipated early December
announcement pronouncement has come; Ultra Violet, a deep, blue-purple shade is Pantone’s Color of the Year 2018 .

A trip to the local department store, especially this late in the game, will yield little in the way of distinctive deguisement. For those seeking something with a bit of sophistication, even those specialized Halloween pop-up shops tend to come up short.
So why not create your own original costume… one that gives a nod to golf history? With just a few easily found items of clothing, slightly altered, you can create your own Golden Age Golfer costume.
For guys, the required pieces are: a jacket

Elite professional golfers hit the ball much, much farther than they did 50 or even 10 years ago. Part of this amped up power game is attributable to modern golf equipment, both clubs and balls.
But another significant factor is the physical conditio…
A few weeks ago, I shot a 77, one stroke over my all-time low round. My swing is finally clicking, and I'm hitting some putts.
So what do I do now?
Start second-guessing my equipment, of course!
And what better place to go to switch my sticks…

In my course's Men's Association weekly play last night, I fell apart. Actually, "melted" would be a better description. It was about 95 degrees with 95% humidity, and I was simultaneously so sweaty, slippery, and sticky, I wasn't sure whether I would d…
