  • Tee time: Erasing the nightmares

    By Dennis George
    Guest columnist

    What a week it has been!
    Just days after Kris Jenkins’ shot to win the NCAA championship game for Villanova and erase the heartbreak of Christian Laettner’s dagger into the hearts of Kentucky fans as one of the great shots of all-time, Jordan Speith’s collapse on the back nine of The Masters may top Greg Norman’s meltdown in the 1996 tournament.
    And never has it been so true that “The Masters doesn’t really begin until the back nine on Sunday.”

  • National champions

    The 2016 NCAA National Championship Game was a thriller, whose outcome was decided at the horn when Kris Jenkins nailed a buzzer beater to give the Villanova Wildcats a 77-74 victory.

  • Remember, a turkey can see ya...

    Coming up this weekend is the opening of our 2016 spring turkey hunting season - ending date is May 8. As in years past you can take two birds but only one per day … and they both have to be gobblers (male turkeys).
    Most gobblers have beards but there are cases where you’ll find a hen (female turkey) with a beard - sorta like the bearded lady at the circus.
    You shouldn’t stalk a turkey. If you know a turkey’s travel route after fly down (when they fly off their roost) set up to intercept them.

    By Larry Vaught

    After Gonzaga got beat in the NCAA Tournament, former Wildcat Kyle Wiltjer thought he would just come back to Kentucky to visit former teammates and friends.
    Instead, his trip turned into an autograph tour across the state that drew plenty of UK fans as well as media members wanting to talk to him about his two years with the Wildcats.
    Wiltjer admits his story is "interesting" because his transfer worked out well for him as well as Kentucky. Wiltjer was part of UK's 2012 national title team.
