• TEE TIME: How well do you know your game?

    Figures lie.

    Liars figure.

    That’s an old saying that I’ve used many times when people have spouted out numbers that I wasn’t sure that I could agree with.

    And just as many professional and collegiate teams use statistics to plot which player to foul in certain situations or ask, is now the time for a hit and run, golfers too should be able check out their numbers.

    Most of us do not have any idea of our vitals.

    We should.

  • TEE TIME: Golfers aren’t always gentlemen

    Golf is described as a gentleman’s game, but, unfortunately, golfers don’t always fit that description.

    Surely most of you have played with that person who always cuts corners, if you will, so as to win those few extra bucks or to shave a couple of strokes off their score.

    They don’t bend the rules; they break them.

    And when you see it happen, you don’t know if you should laugh, get upset, or say something.

  • TEE TIME: Tiger's back, and so am I

    It’s finally back.

    He thinks he’s back.

    And, unfortunately for you, I’m back.

    The golf season is ready to get into full swing as the weather is FINALLY warming up and golfers are scratching their desire to hit the course for a new season of high expectations, with secret tips to improve their games and dreams of that round of a lifetime.

    Tiger Woods thinks his game has rebounded and can contend in The Masters. By the time many of you read this column, his first round will be in the books and his second might be as well.

  • TEE TIME: Ryder Cup golf’s team showcase

    If you thought the climatic ending of the PGA was grip-your-chair hold-on-tight don’t-go-to-the-bathroom type of action, you’re going to enjoy this weekend.

    It’s the Ryder Cup.

    It’s when golf changes from an individual sport that pits man versus the course to a team sport that can force one man to bear the weight of an entire continent on his shoulders.
