and G4G are back

Okay, I’ve been away—and so has this site.

As some know, was hacked in August, right at the time we decided to go to a new look anyway. Getting it back on line has taken some time.

But I’m back and have plenty to write about.

Of course it isn’t like I haven’t been writing.

Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 7.30.58 PMMy column on the Canadian Tour Mackenzie Tour and its progress, was published in Global Golf Post last week. I’ll be out on the tour in two weeks caddying for Ryan Williams, who won the Tour Championship last year. The tour continues to get better and improve with an influx of better players and money. I expect that trend to continue, though it surprises me at how hard it is to find tournament sponsors for the Mackenzie Tour events.



Screen Shot 2015-09-07 at 7.34.45 PMThe week previous I wrote about Brooke Henderson. Interestingly, I had a discussion with someone about Henderson this week. Though Henderson has won, she has some big decisions still to make—who caddies for her regularly (her sister potentially if she gives up on playing, which seems unlikely), and who coaches her in an ongoing basis (Golf Canada’s Tristan Mullaly has been working with her, but he clearly has other priorities). There are a lot of decisions to be made and it would appear her father will likely continue to travel with her, not surprising since she’s only approaching 18.

I’m off to Calgary this week to spend some time with Phil Mickelson at his new project, Mickelson National.
