“Golf’s credit crunch” causing agents to lose cash, sleep

Rapidly vanishing lines of credit are not only taking their toll on inflated asset prices and the global financial markets in general, but also in the willingness of companies to not only underwrite sporting events, but also to market their brands through athletes.

The Primary Cut – British Open Style

While Augusta is my favorite major to watch, and while I consider the U.S. Open to be the toughest major to actually win, there is something about The British Open that makes it the most special of the four. Maybe it’s because it is golf’s oldest championship. Maybe it’s because it’s fun to wake up […]

The Primary Cut – Masters Edition

If you are a golf fan, then Masters week is your Super Bowl. Sure, the 90-man field is by far the weakest of the four majors, boasting aged “past champions” who would have no business at any Club Championship, let alone with the world’s best at Augusta.
