NBA Playoffs: Who’s Ready To Play Golf?

| by

The NBA is in playoff mode, so that means one unfortunate thing for many players: The season’s almost over. Some players, when their team is eliminated, choose to lay low and spend time with their families. Others might take a vacation. In the case of guys like Jason Kidd, it’s a time to hit the links.

Predicting The 2014 Masters Champions Dinner Menu

| by

The green jacket-wearing dudes in the “Masters Club” usually pick pretty predictable menus for their Champions Dinners: Lone Star native Ben Crenshaw went with Texas barbecue in ’95, while Zach Johnson led with Iowa beef in ’08. So how about next year’s menu? Let’s look into my gravy-stained crystal ball and see what a few potential winners would serve.

Pro Tips: Everybody’s Doing It

| by

Dufnering entered the lexicon within the last 24 hours, thanks to a Deadspin post featuring a priceless picture of Jason Dufner looks absolutely despondent in a Dallas classroom with children. Keegan Bradley and Rory McIlroy kicked off the trend by McIlroy sending out his best imitation, then Bradley cultivating more pictures from pros. And it may have reached its pinnacle this morning when Bradley, Dustin Johnson and Brandt Snedeker did their best effort in Houston on Day 2 of the Shell Houston Open.

Lipping Out: Ch-ch-changes

| by

Jon Lord recaps the week that was with 9 telling quotes in “Lipping Out,” including this one from Ernie Els: “I think I would have taken a (expletive) load of Advil.” – Ernie Els after being asked what he would have if in McIlroy’s toothy position.

Fairways of Life:~Bohn Calls Anchoring Ban “BS”

| by

PGA Tour veterans Jason Bohn and Kevin Streelman both joined Matt Adams on “Fairways of Life” on Tuesday to discuss the most controversial topic in the golf world: the looming ban of the anchored stroke. Bohn and Streelman are both members of the Players Advisory Council, which convened Monday in a teleconference with PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem on the subject of supporting the ban proposed by the anchored bodies. Neither one of them use an anchored putter in competition, but Jason Bohn makes it pretty obvious what his feelings are on the matter.

Superlatives:~Northern Trust Open

| by

One of the best parts about the Northern Trust Open is watching current golf greats like Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson traipse across the same Riviera fairways that were once graced by Los Angeles legends Frank Sinatra, Gene Autry and Bing Crosby. We’re all in trouble however if the spirits of old Hollywood somehow convince Vijay Singh to break into an impromptu rendition of “Come Fly With Me.” Superlatives!

Superlatives:~Phoenix Open

| by

If the Minnesota Vikings do ever make it back to the Super Bowl, then what happens to those purple people-eaters who lord over the 16th tee box like it is some sort of Nordic funeral pyre? Do they abandon their post in an effort to be there for their favorite football team as they play for the first NFL championship or stay in Phoenix and remain members of the loudest arena in golf? We can verify this later but I’d be very surprised to see many Colin Kaepernick or Ray Lewis jerseys hanging around the Waste Management Open this week. Now on to this week’s Superlatives.

La Quinta Resort

| by

There might not be any golf destination that’s cooler than Palm Springs. Of course, we’re talking about the region’s cool vibe, not the temperature which, during summer, often hits 110 degrees by noon. That’s definitely not cool. Today’s Palm Springs might not be the Swinging Celebrity Party Central it was in the 1950s and ’60s, but there are still enough nods to the region’s past to conjure up great memories, including omnipresent mid-century modern architecture and superb resorts — none more historic or cooler than the La Quinta Resort & Club.

Superlatives:~Humana Challenge

| by

Mark down the Humana Challenge as one of those PGA Tour events that should consider going back to its old name. The Bob Hope Classic harkened back to the good old days of the California desert, when movie stars and crooners like Frank Sinatra use to treat Palm Springs like there own personal playground. Now the area surrounding the La Quinta Country Club is a magnet for young Hollywood hipsters who consider themselves edgy because they drink Tecate while playing pickup basketball in skateboarding sneakers and V-neck undershirts. Now on to this week’s Superlatives.

With the return of the Players Championship comes the return of the treacherous 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass. Perhaps the most famous hole in all of golf, the island green at 17 presents a unique challenge …
