The red tees

A man was addressing the ball when an announcement came over the loudspeaker: “Will the gentleman on hole number one please not hit from the Ladies’ tee box.” The man backs away, a little distracted, then approaches his ball again. As he does, the same announcement comes over the loud-speaker: “Will the gentleman on hole […]

A hit with the wife

James and his friend Tom were playing a round of golf with their wives early on a Sunday. It was a four ball, better ball format with a little bit of cash on the line. James stood on the 10th tee having hooked his previous three tee shots, and to no one’s surprise he hooked his drive again. When he […]

The funeral

Two golfers are ready to play on the 11th tee as a funeral cortege passes by. The first player stops, doffs his cap, and bows his head as the cortege passes. “That was a really nice thing to do,” the second golfer says. “It’s good to see there is still some respect in the world.” “Well, […]

The leprechaun

A golfer playing in Ireland hooked his drive into the woods. Looking for his ball, he found a little Leprechaun flat on his back, a big bump on his head and the golfer’s ball beside him. Horrified, the golfer got his water bottle from the cart and poured it over the little guy, reviving him. […]

The coroner

Wayne was teeing off from the men’s tee. On his downswing, he realised that his wife was teeing up on the woman’s tee directly in front of him. Unable to stop his swing, he nailed it, and hit her directly in the head, killing her instantly. A few days later, Wayne got a call from […]

Opinions on the state of the game

Finding the light amidst the clouds

It’s safe to say that 2020 is proving to be one of the most difficult years in living memory. As I write this (in mid-March), Covid-19 / Coronavirus is running rampant across the planet, with people either locked-down, quarantined or brawling in the aisles for bathroom tissue. This all followed the rampant bushfires and floods […]

What a Waste (Management)

Across the globe, a lot has been written and said about the PGA Tour’s Waste Management Phoenix Open. Most notably, the discussion has centred around the topic of the Stadium Hole, which is a grandstand/corporate box that surrounds the par-3 16th hole of TPC Scottsdale, and is purpose-built to house and entertain tens of thousands […]

Hi, Tech!

Last month, I made the trek to Orlando, Florida, for the massive PGA Merchandise Show. Over four full days, I walked the “miles” of aisles, and sampled hundreds upon hundreds of products. One thing I noticed while touring this behemoth of a golf show, is that the level of innovation in the golf products industry […]

Reviews of golf gear and more

Test-Drives: Skechers GO GOLF Elite V.4

Footwear on the golf course has come a long way over the years. When I took up the game nearly 50 years ago, golf shoes were essentially big, bulky, heavy monsters that (similar to my snow ski boots of that era) were so uncomfortable that I often couldn’t wait to get back into the locker […]

Odyssey Stroke Lab putters

Last month, I tested the latest “magic wands” from my favourite putter company, Odyssey. In the bag for my testing pleasure were the newly-released Odyssey Stroke Lab Black Ten and Odyssey Stroke Lab Black Bird of Prey. As I’ve said before, I’m quite smitten with Odyssey gear (my trusty O-Works Red two-ball putter has pride of place in […]

Considered by many to be among the best irons in the industry, Mizuno clubs are finding their way into the hands of more Tour pros and amateurs alike these days.

2020 Australian Open to move to summer 2021

The Australian Open will not be played in 2020.
