Volume One Hundred Twelve

Aug. 27, 2007     By     Comments (1)

No Tiger? No problem as there was plenty of excitement to go around at the Barclays over the weekend.

Hitting the LinksThe FedExCup started out in dramatic fashion as Steve Stricker, K.J. Choi, and a host of others battled it out at the Barclays Classic with Stricker gaining his first victory in six years. Also, I'm beginning to sound like a broken record as Lorena Ochoa wins yet again on the LPGA Tour at the Safeway Classic.

This week, we have several links from a long overdue winner, an earlier version of the hottest swing theory, and a pretty distinguished golf clinic.

    When I think about it, I'd even pay a "walking fee" at some of these mandatory cart courses - that's how resigned I am with the mandatory cart rule.
