Real golfers play in the snow. Here’s an article on a group of Chicago area golfers who don’t let the white stuff get in the way of their pursuit of the little white ball.
St. Andrews University in Scotland is offering a new golf scholarship to “promising young golfers from minority communities in America to apply for a free place, with African-Americans, Hispanics, Asians and Native Americans targeted.”
Called the New Links Scholarship, it was created by Dr. Kenny Wood, a St. Andrews astronomer who has worked in the US.
Considering that the Scots have had trouble winning the Open, I’m surprised that they’re opening things up to Americans.
Still, what a dream that would be to a young golf lover.
The PGA of America has announced that the Grand Slam—which features the winners of the four majors—will move from Hawaii to Bermuda for the 2007 edition.
Since Tiger likely will win at least two of the majors—and the winners of the others may very well bow out, as Phil did this year, it’s a pretty lame event.
Still, it will be nice to see a change of scenery. I’ve not been to Bermuda, but friends who have tell me that it’s quite nice.
In a tawdry publicity stunt for a golf club company, a Russian Cosmonaut used a six iron to launch a golf ball into orbit from the International Space Station.
The ball is expected to go tumbling back to Earth in a few days and burn up upon reentry.
It will, no doubt, be the longest drive in history. But where’s the challenge. There were no sand traps, trees or other hazards to avoid.
Although considering that the world is three quarters water, I suppose that water did come into play.
Its the college game of the century. #1 v #2 for all the marbles.
It seems to me that the whole of Michigan is in a state of shock over the death of Michigan Football legend Bo Schembechler on the eve of the biggest Michigan-Ohio State game in decades. Mrs. Golfblogger, who is a Michigan football fanatic, says that she just feels sick.
Bo’s passing kind of takes a bit of the fun out of the game.
The last time Michigan and Ohio State met undefeated and untied was in 1973—under the commands of Woody Hayes and Bo Schembechler. That game ended in a 10-10 tie.
Tomorrow it seems, Woody and Bo will be watching big game together.

As I was cleaning my clubs this evening, I noticed a curious thing: the five iron was spotless. The grooves on the face of every other club in the bag had little bits of dirt and grass, but not the five iron. The obvious implication…
GEL Ruby Putter Grade: A- Teacher’s Comments: Putts as true as any I have ever used. Few ever notice, but when a ball is struck by a putter, it gives a little hop, then skids for a moment before starting to roll toward the hole. The hop…
