    Can you imagine this scenario?

    This is a duel to the finish. Such an unlikely outcome too. Can you imagine two golfers tied for the lead teeing off on #18. One golfer eagles the hole .... and LOSES the tournament...

    Golf Etiquette on the course

    Professional golf seems to be in the minority when it comes to fan behavior affecting the players. Other sports have fans trying to distract players at times during the game (shooting free throws in basketball, free kicks in soccer, disrupting players at bat in baseball, etc). Golf seems to be...

    How would you change the USGA Handicap rules?

    Some recent threads have suggested that there's much wrong with the current USGA handicap methods. What changes would you like to see in order to make the handicap system more useful?

    Searching for the right ball - how much is enough?

    I recently took an inventory of my "golf closet" which is where I keep my equipment. I was a bit astonished (and maybe slightly embarrassed) to determine that I have well over 500 never used golf balls on the shelf. Much of that is due to wanting to try different balls with different...

    Good (tour) balls not for high handicappers?

    Was wondering about a comment given to me at a local golf superstore. First, a little background. I've never played serious golf though I play in our company league each year (only 9 holes a week for several months). My handicap is pretty consistent at 12-14 each year (9 hole handicap). One...
