I’ve watched the replay of Golf Channel’s tape-delayed coverage of the semifinals match between Morgan Pressel and Azahara Munoz, with a particular interest on the 12th hole, where Pressel went over the allotted time — she had 2:09 to play her three shots — by 39 seconds. I’ve also read just about every article of […]

Anyone LPGA-ed out yet? Somewhat shockingly, I’m not after my week at Sybase. I had a fantastic time. There’s something about being on-site to cover a tournament that gets me fired up, not to mention inspired. Obviously, it helps make reporting on it much better and easier in most regards, especially when the media receives […]

Personally, it’s not a big deal to me that the four players left are Jiyai Shin, two Koreans I’d never heard of before (but good news, at least one of them has an American name, so you can pronounce it!) and Angela Stanford. I mean, if I could handpick the final four, I probably wouldn’t […]

Alright. This is my attempt to liveblog the Michelle Wie-Jiyai Shin match. Excuse typos. Luckily, I’m riding in the party cart with Christina Kim and her agent, Harry Hardy (yes, that’s really his name). It’s hard to type on the iPad and watch. Or perhaps I’m just not good at multi-tasking. Probably! Well, here goes […]

Update: Sorry for the confusion. My car didn’t actually blow-up. I just found this picture on the Internet and thought it was funny. At the time, I didn’t realize it’d be taken out of context. Pardon the psuedo-profanity, but honestly, it’s a euphemism for the words I actually wanted to write. Because I know you’re […]

I’ve been running around the course, but haven’t seen anything too interesting yet. I caught the Blumenherst-Lewis match for two holes. Apparently now it’s heating up. My timing is always impeccable. I wanted to see the Pettersen-Inkster playoff, but I was at the farthest point away from them. I made a run for it. I’m […]

Come on, guys! Can you two at least pretend to look a little happier for the ten-thousandth picture you were posing for? Kidding. There wasn’t a dull moment on Wednesday. Seriously. First things first, I sincerely apologize for the dreadful quality of most these pictures. I currently don’t have a working camera other than the […]

Wow, I can’t believe it’s already been a year since the Sybase Classic at the Upper Montclair CC. That tournament will always hold a special place for me because it was the first one I attended after starting my blog. Well, I’m returning this week for the inaugural Sybase Match Play Championship. So, pretty much […]

First of all, the Upper Montclair Country Club is bee-yoo-ti-ful. It’s an awesome old golf course. Trust me. If you can get out there this week, do it. I’m no expert, but I had a few observations while I was walking the course yesterday. From what I could tell, excellent ball-striking will be the KEY […]
