Looks Like ABC is Finally Wising Up

I can't understand how these networks negotiate these huge contracts with sports when they know they will most likely lose money. If I did that in my job I'd be out on my rear. Actually, I don't have a job where I have that kind of responsibility but you get the point.

Well ABC has come to their senses. They say they have been losing money for the last 5 years on golf - yikes! They decided to walk away from negotiations even with the new, revamped and much ballyhooed golf scheduled coming out in 2007.

Maybe this will send a signal to the pros that they should support their tour a little more - hear that Tiger and Phil? You can read more about it at USA Today

Here's How to Score a Golf Trifecta

Have you ever won a trifecta. In horse racing it's when you pick the the win, place and show horses all on the same ticket.

In golf it's something different. W.C. Fields may have completed the first golf trifecta. Legend has it that after missing a shot he threw his ball into a lake. Still angry, he then slung his clubs, bag and all, into the water. Still not satisfied he then chucked his caddie in.

Now that's a trifecta!

Be Wary of the Clever Golf Widow

There are golf widows who lament their plight and vow revenge by doing something that would strike fear into most mortal mens wallet - shopping. Then there are those much more devious, underhanded, lechorous and dare I say clever widows who decide to teach a much harder lesson to their blissfully unaware spouses.

They decide to take up golf themselves so they can spend "quality" time with their partners on the golf course. How fun it will be they say all the while they're secretly planning the total destruction of the one part of your life you hold dear and sacred, spending time with your friends doing a sport you love.

Yes folks they're out there and you better be on your toes. That women sharing your bed could be one of them. Read this chilling story over at Think Golf and tell me it doesn't send shivers down your spine.

Be afraid, be very afraid.

I'm Buying Stock In Callaway and Titleist. Here's Why...

If you're a stock market dabbler then you need to read this article over at Bogey Lounge and take advantage. The big golf manufacturers are only going to get bigger with Asia opening up to golf in a big way.

Hey if the big guys are going to cash in on asia why can't us little guys do the same.
