  • GOLF: Coaching and playing a passion for legend Rizer
    For St. Catharine College golf coach Joan Rizer, the sport became a passion at an early age. Actually, since the age of 12, Rizer has been living her dream of playing, coaching and the love for the game. “I started playing when I was young and just really enjoyed it,” Rizer said. “Golf is my passion, as I’ve been playing for about 47 years. I’m single, so this has been what I have loved doing. I have lived right across from a golf course for the majority of my life, so it’s just a true passion.”
  • TEE TIME: Where should I make my ball drop?

  • New Haven native a running legend
    Nearly 60 years ago, the track coach at St. Joseph Prep School in Bardstown needed a miler. He spotted a scrawny country boy sitting in one of his classes by the name of Press Whelan, and urged the New Haven youngster to join the team. Luckily for the running community, Whelan agreed.
  • TEE TIME: What of J.B.?
    If you’re like me, when you check out the Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader for the golf scores on the PGA tour, you look for the names in bold that indicate that the player is from Kentucky. Conspicuously missing from the list in recent months is Campbellsville’s J.B. Holmes, the two-time winner of the Waste Management Phoenix Open. A member of the U.S. team that won the 2008 Ryder Cup at Valhalla Golf Club, where he helped the American cause by going 2-0-1 in his three matches, Holmes has been plagued by injury in his eighth year on tour.
