Many business owners have an interest in golf and have decided to help share their passion for the sport with their fellow golfers. Many of these types of golf products are easy to find in pro shops.

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:

Epic and infamous Holly Sonders Cubs game photos

holly-sonders

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.

michael_jordans_golf_bag

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. Unless you live out in the country, you probably don’t have a lot of space to drive a ball or practice putting. But, what you can do is mow a small section of your yard and set up a net to catch balls.

holly-sonders

The Master’s are a tradition unlike any other. As we’re currently in The Master’s mania, you want to look knowledgeable regarding golf terms.

So to give a helping hand, here are some of the terms frequently used:

Golf Channel personality Win McMurry (Phelps GF): photos and bios

win-mcmurry

Golf Channel hottie Win McMurry is Michael Phelps’ girlfriend, we have confirmation on that now. Yesterday I got a lame pitch letter from some PR hack asking me to publish pictures of Michael Phelps wearing a specific brand of loafers. And to write an editorial about said loafers. YEAH, I’LL GET RIGHT ON THAT! BREAKING NEWS.

However, the letter said the pics of Phelps getting off the plane were taken by his girlfriend Win McMurry; so thus ends the speculation about the status of Phelps and McMurry. I get over a dozen LAME pitch letters like that per day, with zero news value. Yet this one delivered something worthwhile. But I don’t want Michael Phelps pictures in my inbox; I want Win McMurry pictures in my inbox. Here’s some in this post.
