Its time for the first annual Capelle On Golf Year-In-Review. The emphasis is on the majors and a few other noteworthy events. For many fans, myself included, the season begins with the Farmers at Torrey Pines thanks, in large part, to those gorgeous shots of the La Jolla coastline from the blimp. Kyle Stanley lost […]

July 8th, 2012 · No Comments

As an independent thinker I take exception with much of what the Golf Channel’s outspoken Brandel Chamblee has to say. However, today he hit the ball out of the park – three times in three swings.

Crashing the Party at Golf Digest

August 6th, 2010 · No Comments

Golf Digest just recently held a roundtable of writers to discuss the hot topics of the day. After reading it I wanted to stand up and applaud some of their opinions, while on others, throwing rotten tomatoes seemed like a more appropriate response.

Tiger Woods’ Interview Decoded

March 22nd, 2010 · 1 Comment

Bias Continues in the World Golf Rankings

January 19th, 2010 · 1 Comment

Ryo Ishikawa and Charl Schwartzel know the secret to becoming one of the top 50 players in the world ahead of their time: play on a foreign circuit. Events on the Japan Tour and some of the weak fielded European Tour events may award far fewer points than the big name events on the PGA […]
