Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Spring is finally here and I cannot wait to hit the links!  I have tried numerous putters over the off season and there is one series I keep going back to, the Odyssey Black Tour Series.  These putters are simply amazing.  They are crafted of the finest materials and I can tell after rolling a few putts that Odyssey really did their homework with this entire line of putters.  I have already reviewed the #9 model, but after spending some time with the #6 the last few days, I am beginning to change my mind.  This is my new favorite model.

The Return of Tiger Woods

Tuesday, March 23rd, 2010

The golf media has been buzzing about latest interviews from Tiger Woods, and to be honest, I have heard enough.  Although, like  thousand of others out there, both golfers and non-golfers alike, I tuned to hear him speak on both ESPN and The Golf Channel and I thought he did a fairly good job.  So far, Tiger has handled the media blast quite well, thanks in large part to Ari Fleisher, George W.
