Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is campaigning in Ohio this afternoon in the hope he can prise some of the swing state’s coveted baby boomers from the clutches of Team Obama.
Along for the ride is 18-time major champion and Upper Arlington native Jack Nicklaus, who shared the stage with Romney during a routine rally at Westerville High School. (continue reading…)

BRACE YOURSELF. Sandy-area gate is about to break out…
Well, I hate say this – and hoped I wouldn’t have to — but told ya so. After walking the course on Wednesday, I had this sinking feeling in my stomach
(“Whistling Straits but flat”) that there would be some type of controversial or unfortunate rules infraction due to the “NO BUNKERS” local.
Just felt there were too many gray areas and when you have that many “sandy areas” — which should also be referred to as “mud areas” in places – it’s inevitable.

As an extension of this annual initiative, the bank is encouraging fans to get involved — either on-site by stopping by the “Wells Fargo Banking Center” or online via its Facebook page.
Over the last few days I’ve gone around and asked probably about two dozen players about the program and their own reading interests. You may or may not be surprised by the most popular responses (and blank stares). (continue reading…)
The Masters 2012: Adam Scott returns to the site of the major he lost … only he doesn’t believe that
AUGUSTA, Ga. — In the blinding mid-afternoon sun, Adam Scott was busy finding himself answering more of the same questions. He had just finished doing his weekly session with the media, when he was intercepted coming out of the back door by a familiar friend in the Australian media. The request was for a little bit of alone time for the usual inquiries: What happened in the final round of The Masters last year and how is he going to correct it this year.
I strolled into the interview room at Bay Hill for Arnold Palmer’s press conference with a mission in mind. You see, I spent the last two weeks speaking with players and asking them for anecdotes on the first time they shook the King’s hand. I had never had the pleasure/privilege, but that was going to change on Wednesday morning. (continue reading…)
