Golf Digest Deputy Editor. Professional amateur on good days, amateur professional on bad.

Rory McIlroy and the Miracle Kid - Golf Digest — Traden Karch wasn't necessarily the best player on the team, but the kid had a nose for clutch moments. Like his chip-in on the last hole to beat the team from Austin. Or the 40-foot bomb against Little Rock.

For golfers aboard flight that crashed into Hudson, new movie is chance to relive their life's most surreal moment - Golf Digest — The trip began with a crisis, or what felt like a crisis at the time. When you end up crash landing in a river, these are the sort of definitions that tend to change. The day was Jan. 15, 2009, and for six golfers from Chicopee, Mass., an early wrinkle surfaced when their flight to Myrtle Beach was abruptly canceled.

This might be one of Arnold Palmer's last congratulatory letters, shared by U.S. Amateur semifinalist - Golf Digest — Arnold Palmer was known for his letters. Among the countless ways The King made a personal connection with so many was his dutiful correspondence, which regularly included congratulatory notes to winners of golf tournaments around the globe. One of the final such letters Arnie sent appears to be this note shared by U.S.

The loft on long drive champ's driver is insane! - Golf Digest — When Bobby Jones uttered the famous phrase "He plays a game with which I am not familiar," he was speaking about Jack Nicklaus. But anyone who has been to a long-drive would instantly agree that Jones' comments are just as applicable.

Johnny Miller never truly believed Tiger Woods was going to play at Safeway Open - Golf Digest — If the golf world feels spurned by Tiger Woods' teased return, one has to imagine that feeling is magnified for those associated with the Safeway Open. Johnny Miller is a partner at Silverado Country Club, host of this week's season-opening event. Speaking on Thursday's telecast, the NBC analyst certainly sounded like a jilted lover.

When is it OK for a healthy player to withdraw from a tournament? It depends - Golf Digest — Is thinking you're going to play bad an acceptable reason for withdrawing from an athletic competition? Though Tiger Woods has ceased to be a role model in life, he's still very much one in sport, and so the likely future Ryder Cup captain's turnabout at the Safeway Open three days after signing up warrants this specific ethical scrutiny.

What We Can Learn When Celebrities & Athletes Go Head-To-Head At Lake Tahoe - Golf Digest — Maybe there's just no use talking to PGA Tour players about pressure. Their skills exist on an entirely different plateau, and their weekly exposure to seven-figure paychecks and audiences has inured them from experiencing anything like what we mortals feel teeing it up in a club championship.

Is DeChambeau's win with single-length irons "the day the game changed"? - Golf Digest — As personally significant as Bryson DeChambeau's win in Sunday's DAP Championship in the Tour Finals was for his status as a card-carrying member of the PGA Tour for the 2016-17 season, it might also have greater implications for his theories on equipment and how they might change the game: The 22-year-old's win is believed to be the first time any player in PGA Tour history has won a tournament using a set of irons all the same length.

Little kid shows off great golf swing, even better course etiquette - Golf Digest — The internet is filled with adorable videos of youngsters playing golf. Just last week we pointed out one in which a toddler worked on his swing with every household item imaginable. But this one might just be our favorite of the bunch because of its instructional value.

Is the oldest club in America celebrating its 130th birthday today? - Golf Digest — The Dorset Field Club in southern Vermont was a nine-hole course that became a full 18 the year I shipped off to college, 2000, which I thought was especially poor timing. Growing up my family belonged, and I knew it as the place that made the incredible demand everyone wear a collared shirt.
