Fatherhood

I am in full golf mode this week (frozen into my house and escaping with images of the PGA Tour in paradise, Maui). Plus, I begin my 2014 season covering the pros at the Humana Challenge next week. The big story is Webb Simpson seeking a title while his caddy, Paul Tesori, is back home […]

Another Whistle?

We are approaching a week into the college basketball season, and the conversation should be on the games that took place last night (Michigan State looked experienced; Kentucky looked scary talented; Kansas looked like a long version of Kentucky; Duke looked like Duke… with Jabari Parker). But, and I’m afraid it will get worse before […]

Inspired

I have been blown away by the outreach of folks since I decided to go public with my health issues. I had Horizon League basketball coaches reach out personally to share their well wishes. I had conversations with people I haven’t talked with (sadly) in years. And, most unexpected, I had several people share their […]

A Leg Up?

Ladies and Gentlemen, your FedEx Cup points leader, John Peterson. Or Michael Putnam. Or [insert another Web.com Tour graduate]… The 2013-14 PGA Tour season starts this week. Yes, a new season. A season, historically, generally reserved to start with the (Insert Car Brand) Tournament of Champions that has become synonymous with a new year of […]

Crossroads

It’s October?! Wow, that snuck up on me. I blame September for only having 30 days after those prolonged months of July and August. Nevertheless, seasons are changing, which means sports of focus become a bit blurred for me. I’ve been all golf since April, and that will stay the same through the end of […]

Sticking to My Pick

It has been a wonderful 2013, complete with my first full season on the PGA Tour, largely with SiriusXM PGA Tour Radio. My colleague, Fred Albers, who writes as an insider for PGATour.com made his mid-season predictions while we were all gathered in New Orleans in late April. It was Friday night and he asked […]

Back To My Roots

I was born in Indianapolis. I went to school in Indianapolis. I live in Indianapolis. I work… everywhere BUT Indianapolis. That has been the way life’s opportunities have shifted over the past few years. In 2013, I will have broadcast sports in roughly 20 states and every-sized city imaginable. When I come back to Indy, […]

Ready to Work

It’s been a few weeks since I last talked for a living. And it will be a few weeks more. I’m not complaining about having six weeks off, but broadcasting (for me) is like a drug. You just want more. I want to call shots, or chat with somebody about sports. So….. I am looking […]

A Bittersweet Business

The launch of my new website aims to serve multiple purposes. It’s a way to organize. It’s a way to share. It’s a way to talk. But, let’s be honest: The website serves to improve my business. While I am blessed to call sports, I do it for a living. Promoting the brand of my […]
