It’s that time of the year. My eyes are watery, my nose is itchy, and the azaleas are popping. And I’m craving pimento cheese sandwiches. If you have ever attended The Masters, you know just what I mean about all ofRead More
Hooters reputation has long been secure. Attractive waitresses in tiny neon orange shorts, tight white tank tops, and the chain’s suggestive name successfully established the brand years ago.

One of Tradition’s greatest strengths is the variety of holes it offers. With that in mind, we asked Clay DuBose, Tradition’s general manager, to tell us the course’s three best holes, and he obliged.
No. 7,Read More

I just realized how incredibly spoiled I am when it comes to golf.
Last week I played my first ever round of golf with rental clubs. My clubs were swiped from my car the day before a round so I had to go with the clubs the golf course had available.
The theft occurred in my own driveway (in Florida).
For most folks, and round of golf with rentals wouldn’t be a big deal, but keep in mind that I am not a normal size human being. I am 6’4”Read More

Working for the Golf Channel really has been a dream come true. I’ve been here for a year now and I have had some amazing days and none more fun than this past Thursday. I sat down for an interview with Arnold Palmer for an entire hour. I have had the chance on several occasions to speak with him but never for that amount of time. The first thing you notice is that when he walks into the room the temperature goes up about ten degrees. Even at eighty,Read More
