ARDMORE, Pennsylvania -- The way it's going lately, it can't be a major championship unless someone calls in to report a rules violation.
This time, the USGA talked to the player before he signed his card. And unlike Tiger Woods at the Masters, it turns out Steve Stricker did nothing wrong on the par-3 third hole except for a bad tee shot that led to double bogey.

The biggest challenge facing a new golf course opening in Canada’s mountain terrain isn’t necessarily attracting players. Rather, it’s fitting into the surroundings seamlessly, and that appears to have been a slamdunk for one of the newest tracks in B.C.
For golfers looking for a new adventure that is right at home in it setting, that’s exactly what you get at Wildstone Golf Course in Cranbrook, B.C.

Golfers are funny. They can’t wait to get onto the golf course and then once there, they can’t wait to get off, whining almost continually about how long a round takes.
If you think you’re unlucky because the slowest of slow always seem to show up at your course and you always seem to get stuck behind them, don’t fret. This is a worldwide epidemic as evidenced by a recent comment on an NBC television broadcast.
