Look for women golfers in black, white and neon next spring. That’s just one of the trends being marketed by Antigua in its newly introduced 2015 collection.

We all have our favorite ball markers, some quite glitzy, but they all require proper handling within the Rules of Golf. Guidance guru Gail Rogers explains.
As golfers, we all have them: decorative or logo ball markers of plastic, wood or metal that settle to the bottom of a ball pocket in our golf bag, or reside on a hat clip. They give us a smile when one from a memorable trip or golf day is pulled out to be used for the round that is about to begin.
But they have a serious function too.
Understanding the little rules associated with ball markers will save us from making a mistake that costs a penalty stroke in either match and stroke play. It could even prevent us from being disqualified for not recording a penalty that we have incurred before returning our scorecard.
Golf’s unwritten rules intimidate new players. Here’s how to translate them into good manners.
Q: Golf has so many unwritten rules, generally known as “golf etiquette,” that I’m intimidated about playing with strangers. What are the good manners that won’t give me away as a newbie – and might even get me an invitation or two for a future round?
The good news and the bad news about golf etiquette: It’s just like learning social etiquette. Bad news: Have you tried to lift any of the social etiquette books? Ow! Good news: Once you learn etiquette, it requires little thought as long as you offer grace and a smile.
In the interest of positive imagery – always advised in swing thoughts and etiquette – here are a few key do’s: Continue reading →
These three fun moves with the right-size hula hoop might help your golf swing. They’ll most definitely help your golf fitness.
The hula hoop might be just the toy for the well-rounded golfer looking to improve golf fitness.
Kaye Anderson’s Hoop Power classes draw exercisers of all ages and fitness levels because they’re fun, low impact and accessible to all. Here she shares a few ideas for golfers who can’t make it to her Berkeley, Calif., studio.
“I’ve taught all ages and sizes, and this is accessible even to the person with a knee injury or a bad back,” Anderson said. “The most important thing is to have the right size hoop. A larger, heavier person needs a bigger hoop. And the one thing I would not recommend are the cheap plastic hoops kids use.”
Is Bones a caddy or a caddie? What about Fanny? Could it be that he’s a caddy and she’s a caddie? We had to go to the dictionary, and then some, but now we’ve got the answer.
Which is it, caddy or caddie? Is one masculine and one feminine, like Bobby and Bobbie?
GottaGoGolf has been using the “Rules of Golf” spelling of caddie, but between the resurgance of vintage golf movie Caddyshack and the rise of new golf mobile app Who’s Your Caddy, we finally looked it up. Continue reading →
Reaction to the Cauldron story “Stuck In An Endless Loop” indicated that men still like to watch Tiger Woods, so maybe this is a woman thing.
I wasn’t thinking about this when I wrote “Stuck In An Endless Loop” for the cool new sportswriting collection called The Cauldron. But it occurred to me later when a few men put forth the opinion that golf is dull but Tiger Woods is interesting.
So I wonder: Could it be that women are more interested in watching the likes of Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, and even pudgy Miguel Angel Jimenez, while male viewers are still into Tiger? Continue reading →
