Episode Five – The Rise of TopGolf

Confession: I love TopGolf. I love that it’s fun. I love that it’s inclusive. I love that it is golf. I grew up with my parents taking me to the bowling alley on Friday nights because they were playing in a league with friends. Because it was their social/competitive outlet, it became a bit of […]

Episode Four – Is Golf Healthy?

Yes, the NCAA Tournament is the next major sporting event to keep an eye on, but with the Super Bowl in the past, there is a gap in the sports landscape that needs to be filled. Is golf poised for a bigger piece of the pie? With the help of Ryan Ballengee of The Golf […]

Episode 3 – The Tiger Effect

This is a huge week in golf for a number of reasons, but the most notable has to be the return of Tiger Woods to competitive golf. As somebody who was standing there when Tiger’s glutes didn’t fire in 2015, I can confidently say that this comeback feels different. Every shot will be tweeted and […]

Episode 2

I saw Dustin Johnson torch the field in Maui two weeks ago. To me, it’s hard to argue somebody is a better golfer in the world than DJ, but that’s what arguments are for.

Right Place, Right Time

A Basketball State

Last night, Butler lost on the road at Indiana State, becoming the first ranked opponent to get beaten by the Sycamores in 10 tries. The last? Notre Dame in 2013, on the home floor of the Irish. Notre Dame and Indiana State haven’t place since. It’s likely now that the same will be true for […]

Dare to be Great

When I was younger, I wanted to grow up and be Joel Cornette. It is an odd statement considering that Joel was six months younger than me. But, as my life advanced and our paths continued to cross, I realized how true that was. I also realized how wrong I was. I couldn’t be Joel Cornette. […]

Team Golf > Individual Golf

Last weekend, I won my club championship. It was an honor. It was validating. It was exciting. It had drama. It felt empty? A week before, I competed in a Member-Guest at my friend’s home club. We grinded, ended up in a winner-take-all match to win our flight and lipped out a putt on the […]
