The recent Ryder Cup stats make depressing reading for US golfers and golf fans. The fact is that Europe have won 80% of Ryder Cups over the last couple of decades. These days, the US team goes into each Ryder Cup not expecting to win.

Bubba Watson won the 2012 Master’s. Before he took home the green jacket, he got himself another prize; that he could use for a possible parade lap. NASCAR and track officials unfortunately canceled plans to have pro golfer Bubba Watson drive the car from the television series “The Dukes of Hazzard” at Phoenix International Raceway because of concerns about a negative reaction to the infamous Confederate flag that sits atop the car that year.

Own The Master’s discussion with our golf slang guide


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. If you are planning to go on a golfing holiday or simply play the sport for the first time, the terminology used can be quite mystifying. You don’t want to look like a deer caught in the headlights whilst all the pros are shouting out all these insider terms. You want to play it smooth and act like you know what they are talking about. So to give a helping hand, here are some of the terms frequently used:

The latest from new Sports Bank contributor Helen Salinger

So Lauren Thompson of the Golf Channel has a hot bod, blonde hair and . . . a marketing degree from Central Florida which has obviously helped her out.

Did I mention Lauren Thompson’s hot bod? Which I’m sure people are more apt to discuss than Lauren Thompson’s hosting skills or anything Lauren Thompson can discuss from classroom experience at the Mecca of academia that is UCF.

With Kate Upton, Erin Andrews and Katherine Webb all played out; at least on the internet anyway. The smart owner of an internet news site evolves to see what the next eye candy will be to replace the trio of SEO gold. Holly Sonders seems to be emerging as one of the next page views drivers.

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.

john-daly

John Daly, of Dardanelle, Ark., will undergo elbow surgery next week, keeping him off the golf course for about 3-4 months. As he rehabs from a torn tendon, remember that John Daly the golfer is a completely different person from Daily Show host Jon Stewart. I cannot tell you how many times my senior citizen parents mix these two men up; and I have to correct them.
