Doing Google news searches last night or this morning, I stumbled upon an interesting article. I was shocked and elated to see the author: one Mr. Steve Elling. I bookmarked it (in my title bar to keep it in front of me) to discuss when I got a chance. (I must admit I have not yet read it!) The title drew me in because I’ve often made the same point: “Why The Masters is the Easiest Major to Win.”
So, today, I’m watching the Masters coverage and reading Mr. Elling’s tweets. A fantastic combo. As Mr. Elling is winding things down, he tweets a link to an article at Vice. Recognizing the website from earlier, I immediately went to check it out. Mr. Elling is labeled a “contributor,” and today’s was his fourth article about the Masters. Looks like Vice may have hired Mr. Elling to cover the Masters. If so, I hope it leads to more golf majors or, better yet, a full-time golf/sports coverage gig.
Anyway, I sat on this too long as it is, so get your tail over to Vice and start reading Mr. Elling’s articles. I plan to catch up on all of them first thing tomorrow morning. I urge everyone to read, comment, post to social media, etc.
I can’t write this without telling you about an interesting coincidence. When I was making my live blog list this morning, I went to CBS Sports to see what kind of coverage they had. I was asked to take a survey. It was semi-long, but I patiently answered all the questions. One of them allowed a written response: “What is CBS Golf missing?” I answered with two words: Steve Elling.
Anyway, Elling hooking up with the vice squad is very titillating news. (I just got a message from WordPress that I exceeded my daily allotment of puns in that one sentence.)
