    9 Sports for Rich People

    Though the following sports have gotten a lot more accessible over the years, and the word “exclusive” has lost its luster to a large extent, rich-person sports are still thriving.

    Should We Start Calling Golfer Anthony Kim “Mr. Vegas”?

    Professional golfer Anthony Kim may not have a nickname yet, but after his last trip to Sin City, perhaps we should be calling him “Mr. Vegas.” In town for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, Kim withdrew from the tournament prior to Wednesday’s opening tee. He stated that it was the result of […]

    Jeff Overton’s “Boom Baby!” Celebration At The Ryder Cup (Video)

    When it comes to golf, few people would characterize it as a game of high intensity.  But that all changes at the Ryder Cup when the Europe-vs-USA dynamic is added into the mix.  Suddenly, the battle for national and continental pride adds a level of emotion rarely seen out on the course. That was evident […]

    During Sunday’s Ryder Cup action, it appeared as though Tiger Woods had taken the opportunity to give us all a sneak preview of what golf might look like on a 3D television.

    Picture Of The Day: What You Lookin’ At Tiger?

    It appears as though Tiger Woods is enjoying the view at the Ryder Cup opening ceremonies.  And what a view it is! Something tells me that this blond just became No. 3149 on Tiger’s “To Do” list.  You can just see it in his eyes.  He doesn’t even need to open his mouth for us […]

    This Is What A Basketball Hole-In-One Looks Like (Video)

    Tiger Woods may be the best golfer around, and Michael Jordan has been labeled by many as the best basketball player ever, but when you combine the two sports together neither can match the talents of Ohio’s John Jones.  This teenager put his skills to the test by attempting to hit what we are calling […]

    Insane 200 Yard Golf Gong Shot (Video)

    Wait for it… Pfft. I hit shots like this all of the time. But on the golf course. Plus, I always hit the lake. How is that a big deal? But seriously, heck of a job by David Howell, Paul McGinley, Marcel Siem and Rhys Davies, with Howell being the one to finally ring the […]

    Did Dustin Johnson Get Hosed At The PGA Championship?

    The 2010 PGA Championship will forever be remembered for its rather unusual finish, which saw Martin Kaymer and Bubba Watson battle it out in a playoff.  However, it is not the fact that these two golfers needed a playoff to decide the winner that will make this final major tournament of the season memorable.  Instead, […]

    9 Truly Unique Sports Venues from Around the World

    When it comes to sports venues, it’s usually pretty cut and dry. There’s the field of play, the seats for spectators, some bathrooms, some concessions, and that’s about it. Even venues that are considered to have character (Wrigley Field, Fenway, etc.) pretty much follow the same formula. But if you search hard enough, you’ll find […]

    Picture Of The Day: If You Cherish Your Balls (PIC)

    The rule is simple, “Any persons (Except players) caught collecting golf balls on this course will be prosecuted and have their balls removed.”  Take it for what you want, the rule sounds pretty legit to me.  So next time you think about sneaking onto a golf course and look for some golf balls, remember this […]
