  • Gearing Up

    Golf is a funny game, where you can be just as skilled at 17 years old as you are at 70…and at 37, and at 57, etc. It’s the most generationally competitive sport out there, other than bocce ball, maybe.

  • Ready for the Spotlight

    The World Cup is something that, even if you are allergic to sport, tucked under a rock at the bottom of an ocean, is probably impossible to avoid. In a country that breeds nationalism, any jersey with the three letters “USA” stitched across a competitive chest will excite even the shiest of Americans.

  • Start ‘em Young

    Golf can be an expensive hobby. Just about any way you slice it, pun intended, weekly trips to the fairways can rack up quite the bill. This has become the fretful realization of my first few weeks in New York.

  • A Perfect Course for a Beginner

    I sat in my Door County kitchen last week, writing thank-you notes to friends and family as a playoff hockey game filled the background. Mom was curled up in the nearest La-Z-Boy, peppering me with questions about the rink, the players, the rules, the coaches, etc.
