I’d never been to a Media Day, that is, until yesterday. I went to the 2010 U.S. Senior Open Press Conference & Golf Outing at Sahalee Country Club, and it was a pretty amazing experience. Chris Falco, the President of Sahalee, began with opening remarks; Mike Zinga, the Championship Director followed with an overview of […]

View image | gettyimages.com I normally might have ignored posting on the conclusion of the Australian Masters, but it’s pretty hard to justify glancing over Peter Senior’s victory at Huntingtale. It also makes me chuckle because of a mundane occurrence on Thursday evening when I tuned into the second-round telecast. My boyfriend and I watched for […]

On a gray, rainy morning at the Colonial Country Club in Cordova, a few miles northwest of Memphis, Jason Allred struggled his way through the back nine on the lengthy South Course. It was the first of two rounds he’d play as he attempted to nab one of the 13 U.S. Open spots in the […]

With the galleries five to ten deep from tee to green, the grandstands overflowing, the hero-like adulation and three or four uniformed officers, I felt like I was following Tiger Woods at Sahalee on Friday afternoon. Wrong tour. I walked with Fred Couples, Tom Watson and Eduardo Romero for their first nine, but I actually […]

For those of you who snickered when I said I was going to the Senior Open, I’m happy to report that Thursday was actually rather riveting. No, it’s not Tiger and Phil doing what they do (or used to do), but Fred Couples and Tom Watson aren’t so bad. In fact, they’ve had a few […]
