Every year I get to visit with my old friend Mark Russell, PGA Tour V.P. of officials and tournament operations. The punch line to my relationship with Mark is, "...had I been a success...he may have been a failure..."

If I was challenged, as a native San Franciscan (19th & Noe), to pick one word that best describes my home city I would probably consider; beautiful, charming, alluring or even mystical. In the end I think the word would be tolerant.

A group of heavy hitters in the Silicon Valley has unveiled Project Flogton, the brainchild of the new Alternative Golf Association, with former Sun Microsystems chief Scott McNealy as commissioner. Flogton (“notgolf” spelled backward) is a new game that anyone with a golf swing can learn to play on existing golf courses without disrupting those who continue to play the traditional game.

It is sometimes a challenge for women , regardless of skill level , to give their best performance on the golf course. Many women get hung up on perfecting their golf swings. A good swing does not always make a good golf game and it is difficult to enjoy your golf when your trying to be perfect. Sometimes by letting go of your search of perfection and allowing yourself to have fun and enjoy the game you will surprise yourself at the end results.

Let me be really clear about the point of this exercise. If you love golf, really enjoy the game, you owe it to yourself to play links golf in the British Isles. Nothing compares with it.

Rightfully so, there have been a ton of thoughts on the Olympic Club, the site of this year’s US Open. This marvelous course has been dissected, rated and analyzed by many in the hopes of trying to ascertain how the best players in the world will fair during US Open week. Allow me to give you the slightest peek at how you might do, based on my experience during Media Day. For proper identification, your humble scribe is an average golfer who once had an index that dipped as low as 5.2, but has mostly hovered around the 8 to 12 area. In short, my game is maybe ever so slightly above average. At my best, a good drive for me is in the 240-250 range. If I really caught one, 260 would be the max. The only way I could ever hit a 300 yard drive would be if three factors were involved: 1-downhill, 2-down wind, 3-cart path. I will state that I’m and “ok” putter.
