Greg Norman called out golf’s anti-doping procedure and implied the problem in the game goes beyond, say, Vijay Singh using deer-antler spray.

As you know, Adam Scott won his first major and became the first Australian to win The Masters, which is beyond ginormous for the country.
Lucky for you — as the regular viewers of our show know — Luke Elvy, is an Australian golf commentator, who knows Scotty as well if not better than anyone in the media. He provides fantastic analysis and knowledgeable insight into Scott’s victory that you won’t get anywhere else.
There’s that moment on Masters Sunday when no matter how badly you have to go to the bathroom or grab another beer, you’re glued to your seat and fixated on watching the 18th hole at Augusta National Golf Club. And then, out of nowhere, Adam Scott drills a 30-footer for birdie on the 72nd hole to fire a three-under 69 and move to nine-under.
Two-time major champion and World Golf Hall of Fame member Greg Norman is to assist the China Golf Association (CGA) in the run-up to the 2016 Olympic Games, it was announced today. (continue reading…)
The anchoring ban controversy elicits strong reactions. It pits a group of people who favor one school of thought against another faction who are set in their view on the issue. (Of course there are some who are indifferent because they say it doesn’t effect them one way or the other but that’s kind of missing the point.)
Now I’m sure you haven’t heard or watched or talked about this imminent new rule that will prohibit the anchoring of a club to the body. Trust me, I am dreading 3-4 more years of this, and more importantly, it’s taken away attention away from the multitude of interesting storylines at Q-school (that I have saved yet not enough hours in the day to write and post). That said, after this, I’m putting a hold on all things anchoring — with exceptions, like if it involves opinions of players at Q-school or if Webb Simpson and Keegan Bradley picket outside Sherwood Country Club.

Earlier this week an attention-seeking,
delusional Greg Norman said that Tiger Woods was intimidated by Rory McIlroy. Norman also threw in that Tiger was passing on the torch to Rory, just like Jack Nicklaus did to Norman. Ummm….errr…ever heard of Nick Faldo? But I digress. (continue reading…)
Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods are paired in the first round of the Tour Championship, the fourth and final event in the quest for the $10 million jackpot. The new BFFs will teeing off shortly — and I’ll be walking with the circus, so follow my tweets for inside the ropes updates if you’d like — but I wanted to catch up on the news I’ve missed in the past few days due to travel delays and a killer migraine.

As you may have noticed — especially those whose jobs rely on Wikipedia (like mine) — there was an Internet blackout to protest SOPA. Now I’m horrified WUP even published anything on Wednesday, but so be it.
I spent the afternoon (weather couldn’t be more perfect, by the way, and I may have even gotten a little burnt)
loitering scouring the range for intel, but I learned what you all care about pretty quickly: The Ruth’s Chris tent (which replaced In ‘N Out) is pretty darn good. I had my sliders (with “special sauce”) and chips — I know, isn’t there supposed to be an emphasis on “Health Matters”? Errrr…. (continue reading…)
First, Greg Norman, and then Phil Mickelson, not to mention Matt Kuchar and Davis Love III. Now, Anthony Kim, the most recent big name to enter
the Bob Hope Classic Humana Challenge. Kim went to nearby La Quinta High and has a home in the area, but he hasn’t included the tournament on his schedule since 2008 when he finished T3 (however, during last year’s event many reported AK sightings, myself included — mostly spotted him at a local watering hole).
