The Perfect Golf School Vacation

PLANNING YOUR PERFECT GOLF SCHOOL VACATION (Part 1) For most of us, vacation is synonymous with golf. We’re accustomed to finding a way to fit in at least a round or two wherever we end up in the country.

Learning From A Legend

On the eve of the first LPGA Major Championship of the year, the Kraft Nabisco Championship at Mission Hills Country Club in Rancho Mirage, we asked Bird Golf Academy’s own Sandra Palmer some questions about the tournament. Sandra won the Kraft Nabisco when it was known as the Dinah Shore in 1975 and it is […]

The 76th

The final winning margin of 2 shots did not really describe the dominance of Tiger Woods’ 76th career PGA Tour victory at Doral. It was his seventh victory at the WGC-Cadillac Championship and his fourth win at the event at Doral. Woods has now won an amazing 17 World Golf Championship events, of which there […]

A Good Walk Spoiled

When world #1, Rory McIlroy, walked off on the 9th fairway during the second round of the Honda Championship last Friday, he committed one of professional golf’s most cardinal sins. He quit.

Knock Knock

If you keep knocking on the door, sooner or later someone is going to answer. Welcome back to the winners circle, Brandt Snedeker. The hottest player in golf just got burning hot. Snedeker won his fifth PGA Tour title at Pebble Beach this weekend after a remarkable run of consistent golf. After opening the season […]

75

It was as much as foregone conclusion as is possible in golf. Tiger Woods won his 75th PGA Tour event today at one of his favorite courses, Torrey Pines in San Diego. It was the eighth time Woods has won at Torrey Pines. He has now won the Farmers Insurance title a record seven times […]
