Interestingly, the editor at Travelgolf.com apparently doesn’t have much golf to write about. He spent the day taking further shots at Jay Flemma and myself, though I don’t quite understand why. All I did was make a note about the site’s feud with Walters Golf (see “The Truth Behind Travelgolf.com’s attacks). I really don’t know who was in the right — I just reported their fight.
Anyway, Tim McDonald, the editor, continued to take a run at me today, the same guy who said recently in a column that Going for the Green was “a good blog he keeps current.” McDonald also wrote that I’m “a course rater for Golf Digest and includes solid, though prosaic, course reviews.”
Well, that’s changed. Today McDonald wrote: “His blogs are dull, run-of-the mill musings from an unimaginative mind Ã¯¿½ he must have gone to that great Canadian college, the University of the Obvious.” Nice. Attack Canadians. That’s so typical and easy.
Such a smart fella, that Tim McDonald. Apparently his opinion changed after I decided not to write for Travelgolf.com for free as a blogger. But isn’t the Travelgolf.com website supposed to be about, well, golf? I’m not sure, since McDonald so rarely writes about it. Interestingly, I got several nice comments from readers about how irrelevant Travelgolf has become, or maybe always was.
At least I write under my own name, Tim. The wording of the Rebel Blogger attack on Jay Flemma and myself is very, very similar to the wording of the post under your own name. Yawn.
Let me say this clearly: I endorse Jay Flemma. Actually, why do I need to endorse Jay? What’s my endorsement worth? He seems like a good guy, though we’ve never met. Apparently he was enthusiastic and that’s what McDonald doesn’t like. He writes some nice course reviews. Full stop.
Now back to golf…
