• 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.

  • GOLF: Valhalla trip gets Burkhead to reminiscing

    After taking a trip to Valhalla Golf Club on Aug. 4 for a practice round at the PGA Championship, Kevin Burkhead had a chance to reminisce about three of his former players who turned into professional athletes and a streak unmatched at Campbellsville University.

    John “J.B.” Holmes and Zack Cox played on Burkhead’s Babe Ruth League Braves’ baseball team.

  • GOLF: Eagles top Green

    Bethlehem took to the road Thursday and grabbed a 174-185 win over the Dragons.

    The Eagles won it with consistency, with their foursome each scoring 45 or below, helping them overcome a strong individual low round by the Dragons’ Elijah Rattliff, who checked in with a 36.

    J.T. Smith’s 41 led Bethlehem, followed by Will Schlosser’s 43. Daniel Steele and Corey Robinson each shot a 45.

  • TEE TIME: PGA lookback


    That’s just one of the many superlatives that describes last week’s PGA at Valhalla. Pick any one that you’d use and it’s still not enough.

    The crowds.

    The drama.

    The weather.

    The Tiger watch. Will he or won’t he show up?

    Rory and Phil. Rory and Rickie.

    The rush against time to finish.

  • TEE TIME: Locals work and enjoy the PGA

    The playing conditions at Valhalla Golf Course have received rave reviews from the players and media since they stepped onto the grounds last Monday.

    Those of you who have been fortunate to play the course in the past will recall the neatly manicured bent grass fairways, the firm and fast greens, and the beautiful white sand.

    The club employs 40 people on its ground crew, with an additional 60 volunteers coming in for PGA week to insure that there is no stone left unturned in making sure everything is perfect.
