Anderson .Paark

No, the title isn’t a typo. Go check out the artist Anderson .Paak for you older folks. Early this year I wrote an article about the future of Germantown Country Club. It seems the fate of the club has been settled. The Scottsdale based Millennium Companies, whose slogan reads “Repurposing Golf in Urban Communities”, intends …

“The Path to The PGA Tour”

I’m not sure I knew exactly what to expect as Will and I headed out to Nashville Golf and Athletic Club for our first Web.com Tour event. Both of us have been to numerous PGA Tour events but not any along “The Path to The PGA Tour”. The forecast was calling for rough weather and …

Cart Barn Chronicles: Grant Hirschman

In this edition of Cart Barn Chronicles, we have Web.com and Mackenzie Tour Pro, Grant Hirschman. Grant is a native Memphian and had a very decorated career college career at the University of Oklahoma. I am very grateful for Grant taking the time out of his busy schedule to answer some questions and shed some …

Twenty Two Years and Counting

Dear Tiger, You don’t know me, but I write to you often. You have occupied the idol spot in my life for as long as I can remember (somewhere between 1997/98). We have never met, and I have never had the chance to watch you play in person until this week. You were working on …

Golf’s Garden of Eden

Augusta National Golf Club summed up in one word, unworldly, and in a couple of words, “out of this world”. Even with that lofty praise, word’s just don’t do it justice. While, watching the Masters Tournament on a grainy tube TV with my dad, there was no real way to grasp just how beautiful and …

“The Great Augusta Road Trip”

I entered the random selection process for the first time, and maxed everyday out to increase my odds from not chance in hell, to getting struck by lightning…. “So you say there is a chance?”. The roulette wheel stopped on Four, Tuesday Practice Round …

The Bracket is Out!

With March Madness taking a break until Thursday, there is another bracket you should be checking out. The PGA Tour just released the WGC Dell Match Play Bracket to get you thru that opening weekend hangover. Bubba Watson took home the title last year but that didn’t change his feelings about wanting to get rid …

Please Help, I Can’t Two Putt

Don’t get confused by the title, “I can’t two putt” and think “Here goes Webb about to brag about his putting stroke!”. It could not be further from that. I literally can’t make a routine two-putt to save my damn life. Before we get to present day, there is some scar tissue that needs to …

A Walk in the Park…

As Germantown Country Club holds on to remain a golf course, the ideas of what should happen to the 180 acres the club previously occupied are all over the place. The options range from a dog park and wildlife preserve to a housing development. The “committee” tasked with coming up with possible ideas for this …
