Bragging on myself: Steve Elling, the world’s greatest and gutsiest golf writer, recently retweeted a witty remark (dare I say) of mine. It’s heady stuff to visit, however briefly, the upper stratosphere of golf journalism.
Must Reading: I stumbled upon this article I had bookmarked but forgotten. It sums up my view on golf courses, costs, participation, etc. I thought the part about “graduating” was perfectly put. I’d love to hear what readers think, especially if you disagree (because I can’t imagine why anyone would). Does he accurately capture your own thoughts?
Geoff Shackelford: Another golf writer I’ve recently taken an interest in is Geoff Shackelford. I understand he has a background in golf course design and construction, and his views on such things as pull carts (he likes them) and distance balls and clubs (he doesn’t) strike a chord with me. He is far more polite than I could ever be, but he doesn’t seem to suffer fools any more gladly.
Josh Sens Update: We recently acquired a comment from Josh Sens — hats off to a reader — regarding his infamous $15 billion number. Watch for an upcoming article.
