Weiskopf Gets His Due

Notes on Tom Weiskopf's moving victory at the '95 US Senior Open Championship

Trevino in Repose

Never easy to approach, Trevino is a complex man who seemed to thrive on taunting his own demons. His is one of the great American golf stories. (1994)

Mind Game

Couples, Elkington, Floyd, and Ballesteros delivered some nice quotes for this Golf Illustrated story from many years ago. It starts out being about whether great players are in charge of their emotions or let themselves be fueled by what they're feeling, but thanks to some keen insights from Hale Irwin, delves into the psychology of experience and being prepared -- sort of "Blink," but a millionth as long. Now it could be a handbook for them $1000/hour sports psychologists.

Caddie Tales

Delectable bits of caddie gossip... with mustard. I am especially proud of this Tour feature, which actually was supposed to come out in Golf Digest, except my editor sat on it for two years. From Golf Magazine (May, 1994).

The Sky's The Limit: Frank Esposito is set to make his mark on the Senior Tour

From the February/March issue of The Met Golfer, my profile of 52-year old wunderkind Frank Esposito, winner of the Senior PGA Club Pro Championship and Senior Q-School on consecutive weekends last fall, a longtime dominant force in Garden State golf stepping up to the big time on the Champions Tour.

Lee Trevino, by the numbers

Originally published in Golf (December 1994)

Casey Martin: A Case Full of Variables

Whaling on Casey Martin again. See, I am plenty man enough to pick on handicapped people. With such cruel and brilliant contrarian reasoning, honestly I should of been the Christopher Hitchens of golf writing.

Let This Golfer Overcome His Handicap

I guess I enjoy beating up on handicapped people, because I wrote not one but two screeds attacking Casey Martin. Believe it or not, the basic point was, "Gee, if the dream is that important, why not find a more important dream?" From Newsday, February 1998.

Hi-Tech Tour

This feature for a special PGA Tour supplement in Golf Magazine is what you might call a virtual fossil, based on interviews with such techno visionaries as Mark Hulbert, Wayne Levi, Richard Zokol, Tom Kite, and Gary McCord in January, 1997, not quite the dawn of the internet -- more about 10:30am. Wonder if WriteBot will survive SOPA?
