640px-Ryder_Cup_at_the_2008_PGA_Golf_Show

Many people do not understand the art of golfing. They wonder how someone can putt the ball in a mini hole that too at such a distance. It will not be entirely wrong to state that golfing is an art, but one you can learn if you have the right resources.

Golf is not an easy sport; mastering the art of swinging is not everyone’s forte. The only reason why golfing greats like Tiger Woods and Ben Hogan reached the very top was because of the long hours they put in practice combined with the dedication as well as the determination to succeed. With such a mixture, it was highly unlikely they would not succeed.

Does Natalie Gulbis Appeal to “Family Values” Arch-Conservatives?

natalie-gulbis

Natalie Gulbis is quite possibly the “Anna Kournikova of Golfing;” much more famous for salacious scantily clad photo shoots than actual athletic accomplishment. The label is often slapped on Danica Patrick, and rightfully so.

If you follow NASCAR, you’ve no doubt heard Patrick referred to as the “Anna Kournikova of Auto Racing.” With Gulbis she has just one LPGA Tour win, and that came way back in 2007. She’s currently ranked the 492nd player in the world of golfing, dropping from #363 last year.

old-course-st-andrews

History is written by the victors, the saying goes, and upon visiting St Andrews, one learns that golfing history is no different. As far back as 1691, St Andrews, in the Fife region of Scotland, has been credited as the birthplace of golf. The origins of the game trace all the way back to the 1400s with the two types of golf being played in the very early days.

One form for the game was for the commoners (plebeians, peasants, etc. or whatever you want to call them) and it was actually played in city streets, and led to building damage and personal injury.

donald-trump

Donald Trump, the current front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, is no newcomer to controversy.

In 2006, the high-flying New York tycoon embarked on a mission to build one of the greatest luxury golf resorts in the world – along with hundreds of homes and condos, a giant hotel and a conference center – near Aberdeen on the historic northeast coast of Scotland.

The project sparked heated opposition from locals who felt the venture would spoil their pristine coastline and jeopardize the 4,000-year-old sand dunes of special scientific interest, but the developer broke ground in 2010 and Trump International Golf Links opened in July 2012.

Bubba Watson will paint over the General Lee’s Confederate Flag

general-lee-dukes-of-hazzard

Bubba Watson won the 2012 Master’s, but before he took home the green jacket, the “General Lee” from the classic television series “The Dukes of Hazzard.” The orange 1969 Dodge Charger unfortunately has a large Confederate flag atop its roof.

Well, no more. (at least not in this case) Watson confirmed today that he will paint over the Confederacy’s signature corporate logo. The flag of Dixieland has been co-opted by white supremacist hate groups; and therefore signifies bigotry, oppression, prejudice and some of the worst hate crimes in our nation’s history. Right now America is removing it as quickly as possible.

Bubba Watson is doing his part to preach tolerance and equality instead. He posted this statement via his social media channels:

Holly Sonders seems to be 2015’s “Erin Pageviews.” Actually, she’s been there for awhile, but she’s receiving a spike this month due to her frequent on camera appearances during the U.S. Open. There has been a ton of criticism regarding her two question interview of Jordan Spieth; especially since one of those questions was “do you have a 5th outfit in case it goes to a playoff.”

I know….borrrrrrrrrrring. But when only have 20 seconds to work with, who deep are you expected to get? Remember people in these gigs aren’t doing hard core journalism. Whether or not it’s reporting; that’s even up for debate.

It’s time to get back into the swing of things, but before you hit the links, you need to practice a few shots. What’s a golf enthusiast to do? Get out your clubs and run some drills at home.
