  1. My night in the Nicklaus Room

    John Anderson

    The Jungle Room? Thank you, thank you very much. But no thank you. Russian Tea Room? Nyet. Viper Room? Bite me. Jack Nicklaus Room? Yes. Now that's the one for me. Two months ago, I didn't even know the place existed. Rest assured, however, it do...

  2. Royal Liverpool history lesson

    John Anderson

    Hoylake is more than just a golf course. It's history. History that's been out of sight since 1967. Think of it in terms of legendary Lambeau Field -- if the last game played on that famous piece of Green Bay turf was the Ice Bowl, the 1967 champions...

  3. In defense of Phil Mickelson

    John Anderson

    Please allow me to be the first to take this angle on Phil Mickelson's handling of the U.S. Open's 72nd hole: I'm defending his actions. The consensus, from caddie to club members and, of course, the man responsible for the swing, is that he had no ...

  4. Hall of a story

    John Anderson

    Still not ready for golf ... at least not on the PGA Tour and in front of the crowd and the cameras. Tiger Woods decided to skip Jack Nicklaus' Memorial Tournament as he continues to deal with the death of his father, Earl. It's the first time this...

  5. The Sociology of Greg Norman

    John Anderson

    These Blokes are Good. Seriously, Tim Finchem may have to change some of the copy and catch phrases on the PGA Tour's marketing campaign. Stuart Appleby's win at the Shell Houston Open was the fifth title of the year by an Aussie and the second in...

  6. Why putting is so important

    John Anderson

    The Masters is over, and we have an eight-week stretch until the U.S. Open. I'm here to tell you who is going to win at Winged Foot ... while also letting you in on the guys who'll be cashing the big cardboard checks the next two weeks. It's the on...

  7. Why this Masters will be great

    John Anderson

    Cue the azaleas to bloom, the dogwoods to flower, the glorious Georgia pines to give off that car air freshener scent. This year's Masters promises to be one to remember. If you remember all of the other Masters played in years ending in six, you'll...

  8. Sawgrass' other 17 holes

    John Anderson

    The 17th at TPC Sawgrass ... ... is just one stinking hole! Come on people, there are 17 other holes out there in that Ponte Vedre swamp that deserve your love and attention. Besides, the 17th is famous because of a lot of false advertisin...

  9. Why we love Arnie

    John Anderson

    Dashing, talented, fearless, fallible. Arnold Palmer was -- and is -- everything you or I would like to be on a golf course. And it's because of that last characteristic that he is beloved like no other player in the game's history. The Bay Hill Inv...

  10. Once again, Woods has 'it'

    John Anderson

    More coffee for Mr. Woods, please. As Alec Baldwin so eloquently and profanely explained it to us in the film "Glengarry Glen Ross," "Coffee is for closers" -- which, in Blake the real estate monger's world, pretty much makes Tiger Woods Starbuck...

  11. Raising my son, the golfer

    John Anderson

    Question: How do you know when a 4-year-old with a three-club starter set is ready for the PGA Tour? Answer: I have no earthly idea, although I'm reasonably sure a pre-K program should come before Q School this fall. My son celebrated his fourth bi...

  12. Meet your new matches

    John Anderson

    It's very simple. If it involves golf, but not an actual golf swing, then I have a better idea. Take the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship. Boring! But why? The whole thing is built to copy the success and excitement of the NCAA basketball t...

  13. Hurrying up to wait

    John Anderson

    My boy Stroh (best man at my wedding, friend since kindergarten and one half of the greatest JFK school yard Nerf football team ever) spent some time checking out the golfers and the girls -- not necessarily in that order -- at the FBR Open last week...

  14. Tiger proves he's still the one

    John Anderson

    Round one. One fairway. One under par. How many golfers can do that? One. How did Tiger Woods do at the Buick Invitational? He won. It's why Tiger is No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking and every other your-logo-here visor-wearer on ...

  15. Early-season swing thoughts

    John Anderson

    Whacking through a bucket of Sunday range balls while waiting for Elin's twin sister to call back... Hope for wind: First, Chad Campbell. Second, Scott Verplank. The Bob Hope Chrysler Classic once again reinforced the adage, "When the wind blows,...

  16. Getting our just desert

    John Anderson

    In Wisconsin, where I was raised and where the ideal golf season (in a good year) runs Aug. 3-14, they tell an utterly ridiculous story about the boldest man in the world. He is the fella who looked over a lush rolling meadow with subtle elevation c...
