  • English Only, Please

    28 Aug 2008

    The LPGA’s announcement that members will be required to speak English by the end of 2009 has set off strong reactions, from dismay to satisfaction. Is it for the good of tour members, or an arbitrary rule with racist undertones? Will this start a trend in other professional sports, or will it be dismissed as an anomaly? It will be interesting to see how this plays out. What do you think?

  • Golf & Cooking

    25 Aug 2008

    The combination of golf and barbecuing can feel a little forced sometimes, especially when it takes the form of quirky gifts. Golf and cooking classes however, seem like the perfect fit, not because golfers are necessarily interested in cooking, but because their significant others might be. Throw in exotic destinations like Tuscany, and you’re guaranteed a happy spouse and lots of golfing for yourself. The Celebrity Chef Classic on Hilton Head Island even boasts cooking demonstrations by Sara Moulton and Ming Tsai. Vacation with a bit of glamour — sounds perfect to me.

  • Make a Difference with $1

    13 Aug 2008

    From Friday, Aug. 29 through Monday, Sept. 1, you can show your support for the families of our troops while doing what you love–by donating a minimum of $1 during a round of golf for Patriot Golf Day. All funds raised will benefit the Folds of Honor Foundation to provide educational scholarships to families of those who have become disabled or have lost their lives in the line of duty. In 2007, some 3,200 golf facilities nationwide participated in Patriot Golf Day, raising more than $1 million dollars. You can look up participating golf courses in your state here: http://www.playgolfamerica.com/index.cfm?action=patriot

  • World Golf Tour and GGL Global Gaming Bring Golf to the Olympics

    09 Aug 2008

    Now that the Olympics are upon us, calls are again being made to have golf accepted as an official Olympic sport. WGT, of course, loves the idea of golf in the Olympics, and has partnered with GGL Global Gaming to be a part of the 2008 Digital Games. In doing so, we hope to bring golf to the masses and give people an opportunity to experience a game (and course!) they might otherwise not have the chance to in real life. You can read more about the partnership here: http://www.worldgolftour.com/news_olympics.aspx

    The final major of the golf season is upon us! The 90th PGA Championship will be played beginning this Thursday at Oakland Hills in Michigan, and here at WGT headquarters, we are having a little office competition where each of us picks four players who we think will do best in the tournament. At the end of the tournament, we total up the scores for our players, and the person with the lowest score wins the office bragging rights.

    Who are your four picks?
