Ever complain about a bad shot?

Watch this.


A Big Thanks

Posted by Dave on Thursday, May 3, 2012

Well, the first winter of 2 Play the Tips is over.  We played a lot of courses, we added some reviews, and we've noticed that you've noticed. 

I just want to thank all you folks that revisit our site and enjoy what we're doing.  Playing these places is a total treat, and we l...

I can almost hear the voice of Jim Nantz

Here we are again.  The first major in 8 months.  The first of the year.  A tradition.

I've never been one to watch a ton of sports.  For four days in early April, though, I'm glued to the TV.  There's nothing else like it.  The history.  The property.&nbs...

I guess they're real people, too

One of the cool things about living and working in Palm Beach Gardens, FL is running in to PGA Tour players on a fairly regular basis.  I saw Tiger yesterd...

Oakland Hills Hole-by-Hole

Posted by Dave on Tuesday, December 6, 2011

In preparation for the Oakland Hills (South) review, I wrote down a hole-by-hole description of the course.  Believe it or not, this was really the first time I've done this for a course (OK, I lied.  I did it for Cypress).  I figured it would be a good idea to share it.  It's kind of ...

Really, President's Cup???

Really, Internationals???

Come on!  This was boring.  I'm bored.  I was basically rooting for the Internationals just so that it would be interesting. 

This competition put me to sleep.  Figuratively.  It put Jason t...

I'm feeling Presidential

Posted by Dave on Saturday, November 19, 2011

I'm sitting here watching the President's Cup, and there's a number of things going through my mind. 

1.) Royal Melbourne is a ridiculous golf course.  I love it.  This is how more courses need to play on the PGA Tour.  These guys are out here on a course that's unde...

I get by with a little help from my... Family.

Posted by Dave on Friday, October 28, 2011

I'm in the midst of a journey.  A golf journey.  So far, in the last 7 days, I've played Inverness Club in Toledo, OH, Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills, MI, Bethpage Black in Farmingdale, NY, Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, PA, and Huntingdon Valley Country Club in Huntingd...

No cell phones on the golf course

Posted by Dave on Sunday, August 14, 2011

I decided today that I was going to practice a little bit, so I taped the PGA Championship.  Obviously this is always dangerous.  You have to start every conversation off with "Don't say anything about the tournament...", as well as do your best to screen text messages and, in my case, tur...

Golf and I are on a break

Posted by Dave on Friday, July 29, 2011

I came to the conclusion recently that I'm in a sexless marriage.

...with golf. 

Not to sound like a bad Titleist commercial, but I put a lot in to my game.  And I've endured a long while of not getting much out of it.  At least in the form of on-course victories. ...

They say the ball doesn't know how old you are...

Jack Nicklaus won at least three majors in three different decades.  Think about that. 

His first win on the PGA Tour was the 1962 US Open.  He was 22.  His final win on tour was the 1986 Masters.  He was 46.  ...Flare for the dramatic much?

I am 24 yea...

The Decision

Posted by Dave on Monday, July 18, 2011

In 1985, my uncle made a decision.  In the years since, that decision has been viewed in many different lights by many different people in my family.  Adjectives to describe the decision have, at one time or another, varied widely in tone and connotation. 

An ad in the Chicago Tribune th...

Well hello there readers!

I'm pretty pumped about relaunching  We've put a lot of hard work and long hours in to revamping the site, so hopefully you get as much out of it as we do.  Essentially the site flows a lot better and its easier to find information about cou...
