Guest Guru: Seth Davis

It’s that time of year again. Midnight Madness starts TONIGHT on campuses all across the country, marking the unofficial start to College Hoops 2013 (which for Syracuse fans like myself, is also known as the sad and tragic final year of the Big East as we know it). We haven’t seen our Guest Guru Seth Davis since “One Shining Moment,” […]

Guest Guru: Brad Richards

Today we’re talking a little hockey. And we’re trying to keep it positive amidst the NHL’s latest work stoppage. Labor disputes are the worst part of sports (see: NFL replacement refs saga). Hopefully the league and its players will step into a room, lock the doors, order some chinese food and knock this thing out (editor’s note: no chance). That […]

Guest Guru: Jason Sobel

Has Jason Sobel crossed the imaginary line that separates cult following from mass popularity? Just a couple of years ago, Jason was a golf scribe for with a quirky style and an innovative “live” blog. Who would have thought golf would lend itself to realtime social media? Well apparently Jason did – and a passionate, boisterous following developed. His […]

Guest Guru: Seth Greenberg

Play a round of golf with Seth Greenberg and you’ll quickly realize why he was a two-time ACC Basketball Coach of the Year. You’ll get some course strategy, perhaps an alignment tip or two, and yes…the occasional coach’s pep talk. And when he hits a rare bad shot (Seth is a single-digit handicapper), he unleashes the fury ordinarily saved for […]

Guest Guru: Win McMurry

Win McMurry is quickly becoming one of the most familiar faces in the golf world. Need proof? Check out this Golf Magazine article from last August naming her Golf’s “No. 1 Beauty.” Chances are you’ve seen Win – and I’m guessing you wouldn’t forget if you did – on The Golf Channel or, hosting, reporting, and anchoring on shows […]

Bethpage Black Photo Tour

Had an opportunity to walk Bethpage Black yesterday during the Pro-Am that preceded this weekend’s Barclays tournament. Here’s a collection of photos from my afternoon.     The iconic sign:   Gorgeous look at tee box on 1 (Seung-yul Noh teeing off):   Charlie Wi connects on the 389-yard par-4 2nd:   The fifth, where I overheard Kevin Na tell […]

Guest Guru: Danny Masterson

Just a little observation about Danny Masterson: he doesn’t do anything half-assed. He’s an actor, model, restauranteur, boutique owner, and one of the country’s “most requested DJs,” DJ Mom Jeans (formerly DJ Donkey Pizzle, an iteration of his first persona, DJ Donkey Punch). And oh yeah, the Garden City, New York native – best known for his eight seasons on […]

“Let’s Not Do Anything Stupid”

Video of John Daly hitting a golf ball teed up in David Feherty (let alone anyone’s) mouth? Um, where do I sign up? Daly’s stunt was part of a recent episode of “Feherty”, The Golf Channel’s excellent interview show hosted by well…Feherty, the CBS and TGC commentator.  The video was released on TGC’s website and has gone viral this past week, […]

Trend Alert: Golf Course Apps

Just in the past week, we noticed that two golf courses in our area – Centennial in Carmel, New York and Crystal Springs Resort in Hamburg, New Jersey – were promoting their own apps for mobile devices. Both courses’ apps are free, and include features like GPS, tee time bookings, scorecards, playing tips, and food and beverage menus. Needless to […]
