  • Football is in full swing

    Notes written while hoping that all of you had Peyton Manning on your fantasy football teams …

    Football season is most definitely here, now that everybody from the pee-wees to the pros has started their seasons.

    The Marion County Knights are off to a rough start. After an opening week victory over Lloyd Memorial, the Knights suffered a loss in a close contest to Bell County in a game that was stopped by Mother Nature.

  • Teddy over Johnny

    Johnny Manziel had a season for the ages in 2012. The then-freshman quarterback at Texas A&M took college football by storm and won the Heisman Trophy.

You saw the bond between a caddy and his player when Mickelson and Mackay broke down in tears and hugged each other closely when Phil captured the Open Championship.

  • The Open, Scotland and BBC

    Random thoughts as we prepare for my favorite major of the year and dedicating this column to the late friend Gene Spragens who had a great love of links golf.

    It’s the Open Championship to be contested at the all-male Muirfield, home of the Honourable Company of Ediburgh Golfers, located in Gullane Scotland.

  • Going wrong

    Every golfer at some point has hit an errant shot off the tee, looked quizzically at his playing partners with arms out, and asked, “What did I do wrong?”
    Where did you learn to play the game?
    Who has influenced you?
    Who do you turn to help you with your problems?
